v30.1 Release Notes

Sins of the Father

He goes by many names and designations. The All-Father. Ruler of the Nine Realms. You may refer to him as Odin, and he has arrived in The Contest! 

To celebrate, he and the residents of Asgard hold a tournament to assess his people’s strength. While the competition carries on, the sound of the Eternity Alarm rings across The Battlerealm, drawing Odin’s attention away from the tournament! The All-Father must rush to the abandoned palace of Asgard to stall the rampage of an ancient and powerful foe, the hate-fueled Mangog! Will Odin find redemption, or will he succumb to his past sins?

The Bifrost Delivers two new Champions to The Contest!

Odin is the King of Asgard and All-Father to numerous formidable Asgardian Gods. However, Odin is the most powerful of the Asgardians, possessing a vast cosmic energy source called the Odinforce. This power is so great that Odin must enter a coma-like state called Odinsleep to recover from its overwhelming strength. As protector of the Nine Realms, Odin and his son Thor, defend Asgard from threats of otherworldly origins.

Mangog is the physical manifestation and sum total of a billion billion beings’ hatred from a race imprisoned through a mystical spell by Odin and the Norse Gods. Mangog is physically unstoppable and nearly indestructible while he’s able to feed on psychic energies such as hate, fear and devotion and has claimed he will always exist so long as there is hatred in the world.

Odin’s Bifrost Gauntlet

Do you have what it takes to ascend to godhood? This latest event allows you to compete in Odin’s Gauntlet Quest to earn a unique resource, Uru. Spend your earned Uru to upgrade your Gauntlet’s rewards and difficulty. Can you reach the highest level of the Gauntlet and become a God? 

Be warned, Summoner! Those who choose to challenge the Gauntlet’s highest tiers will put their skills to the test in a way that they have not before!

Log in every day to collect a Feather from the daily calendar to gain entry to the Gauntlet. Once you’re in the quest, you will face a single path challenge with zero energy cost. Fight your way to the end and claim the rewards. In there, you will find Uru fragments, which you will use in Odin’s Armory to buy a Casket of Ancient Winters, which contains the splendors of Odin’s vault and unlocks the next tier of the Gauntlet. Keep going until you have met your match!
