Champions Online: Black Harlequin and Holiday Event Return!

By Alex | Thu 03 Dec 2015 08:00:00 AM PST

 

Hey Champions! It’s all fun and games until someone calls in the bear. Snow is falling signaling the start of winter in Millennium City. Heroes will find the basic version of the ornamented tree in the Renaissance Center. Millennium City will continue its transformation into a winter wonderland, of sorts, on December 24th you’ll find Santa and presents under the fully decorated tree.

The Alert is now live, and every so often, Clarence the giant teddy bear will appear in Millennium City -- team up with friends and take him out in an open-world boss fight!

Event Schedule:

12/3: Tree phase 1
12/10: Black Harlequin queue & Clarence event in MIL
12/17: Tree phase 2
12/24: Tree phase 3: presents can be opened
12/31: Event Ends

 

Grab your very own Holiday present and unwrap the gift it holds inside! Rumor has it, the gift holds one of the following inside:

  • Holiday Henchman
  • Mistletoe
  • Costume: Festive Glowing Nose
  • Costume: Winter Snowman Head
  • Costume: Winter Reindeer Antlers
  • Holiday consumables
  • Become Gingerbread Man Limited
  • Become Toy Soldier Limited
  • Become Snowman Limited
  • Costume: Steampunk Jetpack
  • Snowball
  • Permanent Snowball

 

New Toy Drive Rewards!

 

The Helper Elves at the Toy Drive Charity in Renaissance Center have additional rewards for those heroes that can help them gather presents!
 

 

  

In case you didn’t get it from your Holiday Presents, the Steampunk Jetpack costume piece is available on the Toy Drive store! We also have Steampunk Goggles, Steampunk Jet Boots, and Soldier Arms and Legs as costume pieces. The Duckfoot Gun is a Shotgun weapon skin and the Curling Broom is a Heavy Weapon skin!
 
The Toy Drive store also has a couple of new vehicles: the Millennium Spirit 903F and the Frozen Winter Sleigh!

 


We also have a new Archetype for Silver Players: the Icicle!  The Icicle is a Ranged Archetype with Ice Powers, including the new Icicle Spear! The Icicle is available on the ZEN Store, or you can get it from the Toy Drive Store during the Winter Event!

 

 

 

 

Starting December 10, 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.

 

 

This Alert 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.

 

 

Be aware, where Black Harlequin goes, the dreaded Clarence is sure to follow. While Black Harlequin has retreated back to his foundry, his huge teddy bear is still out in Millennium City terrorizing its citizens. Join the Champions in defending the city from the Attack of the Misfit Toys.

Throughout the event you’ll be able to find randomly spawning x-mas presents where players can receive action figure parts and x-mas items, but be on guard as sometimes these presents are traps set by Black Harlequin so be prepared for an ambush.

 

Tis the season for spreading good will and good cheer,
And to celebrate the holidays, The Toymaster's here!
He stands with his toys in Renaissance Center
With missions and presents for all who will enter.

 
This year the season has a sinister addition
As Black Harlequin starts up his own Yule tradition.
His holidays are all about grand escapades.
But this one may leave our heroes dismayed.

 
Black Harlequin likes to make toys that play rough
And the Toymaster's shop simply has too much fluff.
So the villain "improved" all the toys that were there
He even built Clarence, a HUGE teddy bear!

 
He worked through the night, right up until dawn
And when the sun rose, like a flash he was gone
The snow started falling, the season was nigh
And boxes appeared on streets low, and roofs high...
