Happy anniversary, heroes! September 1st is the fourth anniversary of Champions’ launch, and we’re celebrating starting on Thursday. We’re bringing back your favorite events, including double XP and Questionite, and adding a few new perks and rewards!
The Lemurian invasion, Cybermind’s attack on SOCRATES, and the Malvan visitation – it’s been a heck of a year for Millennium City, and Mayor Biselle’s organized a massive celebration. (Any insinuations that he’s trying to boost his polling numbers in a mid-term slump are, of course, just slander.)
On Thursday after maintenance, Sapphire kicks off this shindig with her concert and giant cake. The Millennium City Free Press reviewed her 80s-inspired hit “We Are All Heroes”, calling it “certainly something to be experienced.” If you just can’t get enough, you can download the MP3 here.
Mayor Biselle’s also shelled out to add a new DJ Madbot action figure to the Anniversary Gift chance boxes. Talk to the anniversary host NPCs to get a daily gift, and defeat villains of your level for more gift boxes: You can get them as loot drops. The gifts include glitzy costume pieces, the Madbot AF, and Foxbat’s own water balloons – including a new giant balloon of doom that’s great for soaking the entire party! Open 150 gifts, and you’ll earn the new hologram Sapphire AF.
If you’re looking to level, this weekend is the perfect time. Get Double XP all weekend – just visit Witchcraft’s spectral form, right outside the Powerhouse for an XP buff, then visit her whenever you need to refresh the buff. We’ll also be having double Questionite next weekend.
Don’t think that Dr. Destroyer’s going to let a celebration like this go unchallenged, though. The cake, concerts and gifts will only last until September 13th. Make sure to get all of your gifts before then, and later in the month, prepare yourself for the return of his Mega-Destroid army…
