Hey Champions, we’re happy to announce that the Winter Event has returned. Snow is falling signaling the start of winter in Millennium City. Heroes will find the basic version of the ornamented tree in the Renaissance Center. Millennium City will continue its transformation into a winter wonderland, of sorts, on December 14 and on December 24th you’ll find Santa and Presents under the fully decorated tree.
In addition, this year we're bundling the March of the Mecha Soldiers mission into a Custom Alert, including new rewards for the defenders of Millennium City.
Black Harlequin is at it again, transforming the abandoned foundry into a workshop manufacturing his deadly toys. It’s up to you to put a stop to his evil plan — delivering thousands of deadly presents around Millennium city.
The March of the Mecha Soldiers Custom Alert is going to be familiar to veterans, but we've added some welcome additions. Instead of going through the entire winter event to get to Black Harlequin, we are making that portion of the event a custom Alert. In addition, since this will be a Custom Alert, you'll now be able to complete the Alert more than once per day.
This Alert will be challenging but will also be rewarding. If you are able to defeat the sinister Black Harlequin, you’ll have a chance to be rewarded with new costume pieces: Blunderbuss weapon piece, Harquebus weapon costume and windup key costume piece (in case you want to look like one of Harlequin’s creations). The alert will be level gated like other Custom Alerts, so you will need to be at least level 20 to enter the alert.
Be aware, where Black Harlequin goes, the dreaded Clarence is sure to follow. While Black Harlequin has retreated back to his foundry, his huge teddy bear is still out in Millennium City terrorizing its citizens. Join the Champions in defending the city from the Attack of the Misfit Toys.
Throughout the event you’ll be able to find randomly spawning x-mas presents where players can receive action figure parts and x-mas items, but be on guard as sometimes these presents are traps set by Black Harlequin so be prepared for an ambush.
The Winter Event starts today, December 5, and will run until December 30 at 7:00 AM PST. Do you have what it takes to defeat the evil Balck Harlequin and his army of deadly toys? Let us know in the Champions Online Forums.
