Hey Champions, we’re happy to announce that the Winter Event is returning next week. In addition, this year we're bundling the Finkle Foundry mission into a Custom Alert, including new rewards for the defenders of Millennium City.
Black Harlequin is at it again, transforming the abandoned foundry into a workshop manufacturing his deadly toys. It’s up to you to put a stop to his evil plan -- delivering thousands of deadly presents around Millennium city.
The Finkle Foundry Custom Alert is going to be familiar to veterans, but we've added some welcome additions. Instead of going through the entire event to get to Black Harlequin, we are making that portion of the event a custom Alert. In addition, since the Finkle Foundry will be a Custom Alert, you'll now be able to complete the Alert more than once per day.
Black Harlequin had a troubled childhood; abused and neglected he was left with only his mechanized toys to keep him company. He ultimately used these toys to help free him from his mother’s imprisonment.
These days Black Harlequin uses his toys to goes on crime sprees, terrorizing anyone who he deems to be “too serious.” His dangerous toys might appear to be jokes, but they are far from it. In this Alert players will face waves of Harlequin’s lethal toys of Mecha Soldiers and Mistift Toys. You’ll also have to watch out for his traps and “gags” as he loves surprises, and usually his surprises leave blood on the floor.
This encounter will be challenging but will also be rewarding. If you are able to defeat the sinister Black Harlequin, you’ll have a chance to be rewarded with new costume pieces: Blunderbuss weapon piece, Harquebus weapon costume and Windup Key costume piece (in case you want to look like one of Harlequin’s creations).
The alert will be level gated like other Custom Alerts, so you will need to be at least level 20 to enter the alert. Do you have what it takes to defeat the evil Balck Harlequin and his army of deadly toys? Let us know in the Champions Online Forums.
