Mechanical mage fans rejoice because the first Quick Rumble of Techno Future arrives in a puff of oil-smelling smoke on August 4th at 5:00PM (PDT) with Tech Wizardry. The magic word (which is also the featured trait) will be Darkhold and on top of Quick Rumble rewards, Tech Wizardry will reward Relay-Circuits, Purple Gear Credits, Orange and Teal Raid Orb Fragments, and Armory 15 and 16 Orb Fragments.
The Pestilence Saga
The next leg of the journey to confront Apocalypse kicks off on August 1st at 5:00PM (PDT) with the premiere of the Pestilence Saga!
Available permanently within the new Epic Campaigns section, the Pestilence Saga is where you'll lead Morgan Le Fay and her four Darkhold members (Agatha Harkness, Wong, Doctor Strange (Heartless), and Scarlet Witch) through missions to reap powerful rewards from Apocalypse that'll fully transform Morgan Le Fay into his Horseman. The rewards are Awakened Ability Materials, Morgan Le Fay's "Pestilence" Costume, and T2 Level 5 Iso-8 Ions and Crystals.
The Pestilence Saga will have three Difficulties, each with five nodes, and to unlock the next Difficulty, you'll need to complete all the Missions of the previous Difficulties at 3 Stars. Here are the Gear Tier requirements for each Difficulty:
- Difficulty 1 - Requires Gear Tier 13 for each character
- Difficulty 2 - Requires Gear Tier 15 for each character
- Difficulty 3 - Requires Gear Tier 17 for each character
And here are the rewards up for grabs within each Difficulty:
Difficulty 1: Orange Ability Materials, Gold, and Mega Orbs
Difficulty 2: Morgan Le Fay Awakened Ability Materials, T4 Ability Materials, and Gold, Training, and Armory 16 Orbs
Difficulty 3: Pestilence Costume, T2 Level 5 Iso Controller Crystals (enough for Morgan Le Fay), and T2 Ions (L4, L5) needed to raise Morgan Le Fay to class level 5 from class level 3. You’ll also earn enough T2 Ions to bring a second character from Green Level 5 to Blue Level 5.
As a reminder, to unlock Apocalypse you will first need to complete Difficulty 2+ of all four Horsemen Sagas, and then complete Apocalypse’s event at Difficulty 2.
In order to fully promote Apocalypse, the full transformation of the Four Horsemen must be complete. This will only be achieved once you have completed Difficulty 3 of the Horsemen Sagas, which rewards the new costumes for each of them.
Bolster your Web-Warriors team starting on August 3rd at 5:00PM (PDT) when Scarlet Spider heads to the War Store. This friendly neighborhood clone’s character shards will be available for 1,375 War Credits, so swing over and grab 'em while they're radioactive.
Additionally, there will be two more newer characters that will have increased availability coming up in the month of August. Make sure to check in with the weekly Friday blogs for more forthcoming info.
For the monthly calendar for August, we’re doing something a little different. Instead of getting 1 character in the monthly calendar, you will get all three Ravager Minions - Ravager Stitcher, Ravager Bruiser, and Ravager Boomer. So, you will receive a total of 360 Ravager Minion shards (that’s 120 of each character!) if you claim your calendar every day of the month. That is enough to unlock each character at three yellow stars if you don’t have any shards of them.
