Nightwraith | Friday, January 15, 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!
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!
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.
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:
*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.
It's nearly time for the seasonal-rare Winter items to return to EpicDuel, and that means the promotional Omega Frost Slayer Gear is due to return! Visit Torgan to check out this gear with newly-unlocked Active cores!
Cores: These previously promotional cores will also return to Torgan for purchase with Varium only
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!
Chrome and many other popular browser are dropping support for Flash next month! This means that the best way to play EpicDuel and all the other AE browser games will be through the Artix Game Launcher! Many of you are already using it, but some are still completely unaware of this major change. Don't be caught off guard and download the Launcher today!
