Shadows Fall Over Cradle!
|From the Release Notes:|
We've got some exciting additions to the Clockworks included in this release. The bravest, most elite knights can take on the most challenging levels to date in Shadow Lairs and everyone can celebrate the Dark Harvest Festival with visits to the Punkin King!
Shadow Lair Overview
The Clockwork Terminal on floor 23 now contains a new area north of the elevator leading to several 'Shadow Lairs.' These mysterious elevators contain the most fearsome challenges found in the Clockworks.
Shadow Lairs are intended for knights equipped with Tier 3 gear, specifically geared toward each Shadow Lair which includes:
Shadow Lair Rewards
All Shadow Lairs feature the following rewards:
Accessing a Shadow Lair
Shadow Lairs are grouped into three ranks. All knights with Tier 3 clearance automatically gain Shadow Lair Clearance 1. Completing a Shadow Lair Rank 1 earns you clearance into the next rank and so on.
The highest Shadow Lair Clearance Level of anyone in the party is respected. Not everyone needs the same rank to join a party in a Shadow Lair.
Shadow Lairs require a Shadow Key to access. Only one key is needed for the entire party. A Shadow Key is destroyed once used.
Shadow Keys can be found in ANY Iron Lockbox or from the Auction House if available.
The Dark Harvest Festival
The Dark Harvest Festival is now being celebrated in Haven and will end on November 1st! This annual event honors the mischievous Punkin King in order to ensure a healthy fall harvest. All Clockwork Tunnels-style levels like Power Complexes and Blast Chambers now have a chance of featuring special rooms inhabited by the Punkin King. Simply hop on the party pad and discover if the Punkin King has candy tokens or something else in store for you!
Candy tokens come in three varieties (Hard Candy, Sour Candy and Sweet Candy) and can be exchanged in the Haven Town Square for festive masks! Masks include:
In case you're just a few pieces of candy shy of the mask you desire, candy tokens can also be purchased in the Haven Town Square. However, they are very expensive!
Remember, this event ends November 1st so collect all the candy you can and get those masks!
