Cataclysm “Echoes of Reality” Changes:
“Castle Kelrik” Event - We added Diana’s Landing last week, and now you’ll have access to the 5th arena before going to challenge Vara. The Castle Kelrik event, located in the “New Dawn” District on the Cataclysm map, will have you trying to solve the puzzle of the 4 rooms, each containing a Shaper Relic. The catch? Two of the rooms have a field preventing access. Figuring out how to get in is up to you and your team.
Inversions Changes - You'll have a new set of Inversions to capitalize on for some extra buffs this week. Get ready to make use of some of those longer range weapons.
Seasonal Store Refresh:
War Chest: Support - Remember how you had a Masterwork or Legendary in every javelin slot except your Support Gear? Know how that Windwall or Bulwark Point would just get obliterated on GM3? Well, now you can finally get those higher end Support items! In addition to the Melee Weapon War Chests (which are staying available in the Seasonal Store), you’ll also be able to spend your earned Crystal currency on new War Chests containing a random javelin Support piece. As a reminder, these War Chests allow you to trade in Crystals for a Masterwork item (with a chance to roll Legendary). To be clear, these War Chests are also the only way to acquire the lvl 66 MW and lvl 80 LEG gear.
War Chest: Melee Weapon - (returning)
Fragmenter Armor Pack (Ranger Javelin)
Painted: Quartz Gemstone
Graphic: Shattered Sea
Graphic: Greed’s Glisten
Decal: Amethyst Warp
Decal: Jade Warp
Decal: Ruby Warp
Arrival Emote: Entry Roar (Colossus Javelin)
Emote: Just… Stop.
Daily Cataclysm Challenge:
Daily Cataclysm Arenas Challenge: Support War Chest - These challenges granted a Gear piece in week two, and now they will reward you with a Support piece (Masterwork with a chance to be Legendary) here in the Week 3 update. These can be repeated daily, so… take your vitamins and do your Dailies. (Since these are technically War Chests as well, they also roll as 66 or 80.)
NOTE: These are in addition to the other rotating Daily, Weekly and Monthly challenges, so keep an eye on your Path to Glory tab in the Challenges menu.
The Leaderboards will refresh weekly, but let’s have a look at the Freelancers that had the top scores for Week 2 of the Cataclysm...
Here are the Week 2 Leaderboard Winners:
PC (10,728,542 total points):
