Upcoming Events: Hearts of Darkness New-Release, 5* Essential Changes, PvP Events and Boost List (Updated!)

Last night, Brigby updated the November Sneak Peek thread with some more information about what to expect for the rest of the week.

Starting with Story Events, after Unstable Iso-8 has completed the next event will be Hearts of Darkness with an esssential list of 5* Star-Lord, 4* Hawkeye, 3* Iron Man and 2* Storm. The placement reward for this event is a yet to be named 4-star, so it’s safe to assume that we’ll have a Piecing Together article letting us know who it is before this Thursday.

Update: Kate Bishop has been set aside for 4* Punisher to coincide with his Netflix series. He will be the essential and progression reward for Hearts of Darkness. Sorry Kate! (hat tip to JFisch on Discord for the new image)

Additionally, there was an announcement regarding the 5* essential nodes which makes the node easier at SCL7 (starting at level 185 rather than 255) but also worth less points in lower SCLs. This would only affect your contributions to your alliance since you’ll still be competing with others within your SCL for placement.

As for Versus Events, once Balance of Power concludes the second off-season event will be Divine Champions with Kingpin and 3* Thor covers as the progression rewards. Lockjaw and 3* Punisher will be the placement rewards for that event and the progression rewards for the first event of the new season: Army of One. Army of One will have Vulture and Colossus covers as its placement rewards.

The boost list that will start this Thursday is:

  • 4-Star: Elektra (Unkillable), Nova, Professor X, Thor (Goddess of Thunder), Winter Soldier
  • 3-Star: Colossus, Iron Fist (Immortal Weapon), Psylocke, Quicksilver, Ragnarok
  • 2-Star: Ares, Daken (Dark Avengers),
  • 1-Star: Juggernaut, Spider-Man (Original)

Stay tuned for more news as it becomes available!
