Love Conquers All!

The Star Sapphires are trying to make amends for what happened during the War of the Light and are making an effort to rekindle the love lost in Gotham City from all that’s happened to it. Unfortunately, Mister Freeze saw what the Zamaron crystals were capable of and has hatched a plan to bring his wife Nora back by integrating their crystals into his cryogenic technology. This misuse of the crystals is extremely dangerous and could cause an exothermic reaction that would destroy the entire city!

Open your Mission Journal and track “A Glowing Love” (Heroes) or “Cold Cold Heart” (Villains). Speak to Hal Jordan in the Gotham East End Police Station Safehouse (Heroes) or Mister Freeze in the Gotham North Burnley Nightclub Safehouse (Villains). While in the Safehouse, visit the terminal next to Hal Jordan or Mister Freeze to pick up a Daily Valentine’s Race mission “Get Your Heart Racing”. This mission can also be picked up at a terminal in Northeast Metropolis near Union Station. The seasonal missions can be completed daily during the event and reset with replay badges.







Don’t forget to visit the Valentine’s Vendor to get seasonal auras, pets, clothing, candies, and base items! The Valentine’s Vendor is located in the East End Safehouse (Heroes)/North Burnley Nightclub (Villains) and inside Mister Freeze’s Laboratory. 

New to the Marketplace: 50 Hearts

Hearts allow you to purchase valentine's day seasonal rewards or other advanced items from seasonal in-game vendors, and is available to use only during the event.

Please note: This currency is available on a per character basis, and is not shared or tradeable.

The special Anti-Monitor Anniversary Event will only be available through January 31, 2017, and when it leaves, it will take with it the special event vendor currently residing in Alternate Metropolis. Does the vendor have any special items – like the Anti-Monitor-inspired gear and style sets?! – that you’re hoping to stock up on or complete before the event ends?

 

GOOD NEWS!

This weekend, from Thursday, January 26, 2017, through Monday, January 30, 2017, you will receive BONUS QWARDIAN CROWNS when you participate in any in-game events that reward this anniversary currency.

Looks like you’ve got plans to make with your league this weekend. Get into the game, get your Qwardian Crowns, and defeat the Anti-Monitor before this year's event is over!

Love the Qwardian look? Don’t forget that the Qwardian Time Capsule is also available in game now.

Happy Anniversary, Heroes and Villains!

For six years, you’ve been fighting the good (or bad…) fight on the streets of Gotham City, amid the skyscrapers of Metropolis, and across the DC Universe. In honor of this auspicious occasion, we have a special gift for you!

We’re introducing the Advance to CR100 option into game, and we’re giving everyone one Advance to CR100 for free! And if you’re a member, you’ll get a second one for free!

So, what is Advance to CR100? It works just like Advance to Level 25, which we introduced last year. With this, you can advance a new or existing character to Combat Rating 100. You will be granted appropriate feats and gear, so your character will be ready to play content* in Tier 5 and Tier 6.

What’s Tier 5 and Tier 6 content? Visit our guide!

Playing a new power with your CR100 character? We've got a guide for that too! 

Are you ready to experience more advanced adventures in DCUO? Enjoy your Advance to CR100 gift (or gifts, if you’re a member!) beginning on the sixth anniversary, January 11, 2017. Make sure you log in to claim and use yours before the end of the month (January 31, 2017). 

Thanks for your heroism…and, we suppose, villainy…over the last six years. Now what are you waiting for? There’s more to be done! Log in to game today.

 
HOW TO USE YOUR FREE ADVANCE TO CR100:
To advance your character to CR100, you first need to log into game.

Once you’re on Character Selection, choose the character on which you’d like to use advance to CR100. (If you want to use it on a brand new character, skip down a bit for details on that!)

Click the “Advance Character Level” button.

Choose the “Skip to CR100” option. Everyone will have the chance to do this on one character for FREE; members will be able to do it on two characters for FREE.

Do you want MORE characters to Advance to CR100? You can also purchase these from this same Character Information menu once you’ve used up the free one(s).

Want to create a NEW character at CR 100?
The option to “Skip to CR 100” will be available during the character create process. After you finish customizing your new hero or villain – including giving him or her a name – you’ll be presented with the options to Skip Tutorial, Skip to Level 25 (for Daybreak/Marketplace Cash), Skip to CR 100 (for free if you haven’t used it yet; for cash if you have), or Start Game.

 
*After Open Episodes end on January 31, 2017, Skip to CR 100 requires access to content through Membership and/or DLC content purchase.

Want to know more about how to get, open, and use a Time Capsule? Visit our guide!

QWARDIAN TIME CAPSULE

Every Qwardian Time Capsule contains some items from the general list, including R&D Exobytes, complex materials, mainframe access bots, Soder Ultimates, and collections. They may also contain an ultra-rare new trinket that summons Qwardian Back-Up/Henchmen! 

Each Time Capsule also includes one of four sub-capsules, or boxes, that can contain the following items or collection pieces that result in them:

Qwardian Guard's Gear


Inspired by Qward and the Qwardians that guard it, Qwardian Guard's Gear can be collected in pieces from the Qwardian Time Capsule. When consumed, the pieces will be level-appropriate to your character, so if you want to trade them, make sure you do it before you attune them!

In addition to the regular Qwardian Guard's Gear, you can also upgrade your style to the Enhanced Qwardian Guard's Gear, a similar but more impressive style. This is done by collecting enough of the gear and Antimatter Motes. Wearing Qwardian Guard's Gear will trigger godly favors drops in Amazon Fury Part III.

Qwardian Mods

New Tactical Mods are available in the new capsule. These mods fit into the head slot and restore 3% of your Power when using specific abilities. You can remove these mods using the Tactical Mod Removal Kit for 20 Marks of Victory.

Zodiac Emblems


The capsule offers twelve new emblems representing the Zodiac signs, fitting for an anniversary event. Collect them all and unlock feats! Like the Qwardian Guard's gear, you can also upgrade the emblems to emissive versions using recipes and Antimatter Motes. Do you know your Zodiac sign?

Qwardian Provisions


You’ll need to finish collections from the Qwardian Time Capsules in order to get your hands on these three styles: the Citrine Misted Aura, the Corrupted Aura, and the Void Material. 



AVAILABLE NOW WITH THE ANTI-MONITOR ANNIVERSARY EVENT
The Qwardian Time Capsule is now dropping in the game and in the new Anniversary event

NEW EPISODE: AMAZON FURY PART III

The Amazon Fury trilogy began with Episode 10. Hippolyta, Queen of the Amazons, seemed to have gone mad as she aligned herself with Circe. Wonder Woman rallied an army together to help fight for Themyscira. In Episode 13, the Amazonian war spread from the mortal realm into the divine as everyone sought to uncover what was really happening with Hippolyta and Hades.

Which brings us to today, and the launch of Episode 27: Amazon Fury Part III! Return to battle-torn Gotham City, descend into the Underworld, face impossible trials, and – if you’re worthy – find yourself ascending to Olympus in this stunning conclusion of an epic trilogy!



Before heading into battle, take a few moments and make sure you’re prepared by reading up these reveals and updates about Amazon Fury Part III:

Think you know everything you’ll need to know? Head into game now and fight to the finish in this trilogy’s finale!

Heroes and Villains. You will soon be called upon to head to Olympus and beyond to challenge the gods and prevent havoc from reaching our mortal realm in Amazon Fury Part III.

To prepare yourself for what lies ahead, we’ve dialed back the Bad Luck Limiter to TWO in order to increase the amount of rare drops you’ll receive.

How does that work? In modern content (where both the Loot Selection Window and Bad Luck Limiter are implemented), if you are not offered a rare drop on either of the first two bosses, you will be on the third. In other words, since modern content has three bosses, you will be sure to get a rare drop from each piece of content that you fully complete.

The event will run from 5:00 AM PST on Friday, November 11, 2016 through 5:00 AM PST on Monday, November 14, 2016.

The gods await you in Amazon Fury Part III. Do not miss your chance to be prepared to face them head on!
