Heroes of Arkesia,
The Chaos Gate revamp arrives during the weekly maintenance on October 25. Downtime will begin on October 25 at 2AM PDT (9AM UTC) and is expected to last 4 hours.
Chaos Gate Revamp
The new Chaos Gate is a combination of Chaos Gates, Ghost Ships, and Treasure Map content. Chaos Gates will now consist of countless demons in consecutive waves, and 3 bosses. Defeating each boss will grant players with combat buffs that increases attack speed and decreases cooldowns. There’s also a chance that a special hidden boss will appear after defeating the last boss! No player stat adjustments will be applied, and the difficulty will depend on Item Level and the number of participants. Like the original Chaos Gates, one of the Demon Legions will appear:
Darkness Legion: During the boss battle, orbs that grant darkness debuffs will appear regularly.
Phantom Legion: During the boss battle, orbs that debuff player damage will appear regularly.
Plague Legion: During the boss battle, insects that debuff players' movement speed will appear regularly.
Mayhem Legion: During the boss battle, Grotesque Doll that gives a flame debuff will appear.
Entrance & Matchmaking
Players can enter from each continent by interacting with the gate. Interacting with gate will make the entry UI pop-up on the player’s screen.
Matchmaking is by region, and the required number of players is a minimum of 4 and a maximum of 16.
Players can also enter Chaos Gates when already in a party.
Content resets at 10AM, just like other content that resets.
Honor Shards, Honing Support Materials, Legendary Engraving Recipe, Cards (XP cards, random card packs), Gems, Gold/Silver
There’s a small chance that the Hidden Boss will appear randomly with special rewards.
