Gift-A-Geddon 2020

Nightwraith | Friday, February 5, 2021

As hard as it is to believe, as this year warps time and space and history into an amorphous cosmic mass, the 2020 season of Gifting is nearly here! This year, gifting will officially go online Friday December 4th and last until Friday January 8th, 2021! In preparation of this major event, which is by far the highlight of every EpicDuel year, we'll be launching a new Mega-Pack and buffing the value of the current 10,000 AP Varium packs!


Legendary Epic Mega-Pack 2020!

Friday November 20th, we'll be launching a massive mega-pack of 40,000 Varium for 20,000 Artix Points. This package will be available after a brief update early in the day. Those who purchase this pack will also be awarded a one-time Legendary Epic Supporter 2020 achievement! This is an incredible value, but it will only be around for a limited time: the promotion will officially end when gifting begins on December 4th!


Epic Supporter 2020!

We're doing something a bit different with the promo packs and boosting the Varium included in the weapon pack from 10,000 to 15,000 and the pure Varium pack from 12,000 to 18,000!  These packages will award the Epic Supporter 2020 achievement which will evolve if the packs are purchased multiple times! The 40,000 Varium pack will also count towards the Epic Supporter 2020 achievement.


The Prize

This year, like last year, we're offering the top 15 Gifters a customized item! What does this mean? Here are some parameters, which could change over the course of the gifting event. Please review them carefully to avoid disappointment or misunderstanding at the end of the gifting event:

  • The item to be customized must already exist.
  • This item can be any sword, sidearm, auxiliary, home item, armor, bot, or class-specific item that has ever been available in-game.*
  • Items from other games can be requested, but require permission from the corresponding game lead, and must align with an already existing item category in EpicDuel. They must also be compatible with EpicDuel’s art style. For example, AQ3D items and AQW armors can’t be adapted for ED without being entirely recreated.
  • If the request is for the physical version of a weapon, and there's a corresponding energy version, the gifting finalist may have the energy version as well. However, you cannot request an entire promo pack or weapon set.
  • If the request if for a customized bot, the wish will only be valid for one damage-type configuration of the bot.
  • Customization requests can be refused if they're deemed unreasonable or illegal (copy-written material, offensive, etc...).
  • The item(s) must be awarded to the same character that made the top 15 gifting list. No item transfers will be honored.
  • The item may have any core available in-game equipped to it as long as it's of the proper category (i.e. no auxiliary cores on primary weapons, etc...).
  • Core graphics and animations will not be customized.
  • For balance reasons, skills cannot be modified (i.e. additional damage, % effectiveness, cooldown, damage type, cost, etc...).

*Founder Exception: Only the first place gifter may request Founder Armor, however, if you have a Founder Achievement from the Founder phase of EpicDuel, but no Founder Armor, you may ask for Founder Armor.

The first place gifter will receive a customized weapon as specified above, but will additionally receive a completely custom item. This can be any item category. The winner will also have the option to receive up to 20 unique codes to share the completely original custom item with friends...or not! It's entirely up to them!**

**The first place winner may not use the top prize to attempt to bypass the Founder Exception to gift Founder Armor or an altered Founder Armor via the custom item codes!

The reason the Founder Exception was created was that Founders were concerned the top 15 would request Founder Armor and diminish the special prestige of the item. Using the custom item prize to attempt to bypass this rule would be an unreasonable request and will be refused.  

Like last year, the top 15 Gifters will have the option to distribute their extra Secret and Silver Secret packages to friends of their choice! This distribution must happen before the packages open so they can't be held in limbo indefinitely.

Hopefully this list will help you make your decision easier without being too restrictive. We'll work with the winners to make sure their wishes are fulfilled to their satisfaction within the parameters established above. If any winner is found to have cheated, they will not be eligible for a wish and will likely have their account disabled.

Stop the Clock!

You may have noticed the war cooldown is set to a ridiculously high number of hours. That's to guarantee that another war won't start to interfere with gifting. The war bar will disappear and be replaced with the gifting interface Friday November 20th!
