Length of Event: 4 days
Sub-Events? Yes; Alliance Rewards in Sub-Events? Yes
Number of Sub-Events: 2 Length of Sub-Events: 48 hours
Unique Reward(s): 50 Hero Points; 2500 ISO - The final node in the first sub-event will award 50 Hero Points. The final node in the second sub-event will award 2500 ISO.
Other Notes:
  • Sub-Event 1: Deadpool vs. Heroes; Sub-Event 2: Deadpool vs. Villains
  • Enemy types vary from event to event and are drawn from the entire roster of characters.

The Gauntlet
Length of Event: Varies
Unique Reward(s): High ISO Reward (last node of each map)
Other Notes:
  • There are 3 maps in the event. Beating the last non-essential node on each map opens up the next map.
  • There are only individual progression rewards; no placement awards (individual or alliance).
  • **Update: One run of the event implemented individual placement awards for fastest completion time in addition to the progression awards. The top 10 players in brackets of 10000 got an event token 10-pack; the rest of the bracket received a Standard token. There were no alliance placement awards.
  • Points are awarded once per node. Nodes are repeatable but only to collect the additional ISO/token/boost awards.
  • Points are fixed; there is no rubberbanding in this event. Scaling is set at the start of the event based on your roster strength. Some individual scaling does still seem to exist as enemy levels have increased during the event for some players.

Deadpool's Daily Quest
Length of Event: 24 hours; Refreshes daily
Other Notes:
  • There are 5 nodes total on two paths.
  • The first path is 3 nodes long; on the first node you can only use 1* characters; on the second node (a survival node) you can use 1* or 2* characters; on the third node you can only use 2* characters. Rewards are ISO and a Taco Token.
  • The second path is 2 nodes long; on the first node, which rewards the player a Taco Token, there is an essential 3* character; the second node (a survival node) will award a single cover of that 3* character. A different 3* character will be the essential/reward each day.
  • Every 5th day, an additional node ("Crash of the Titans") is available. This is a one-on-one fight between a 4* character and an opponent (at level 270) chosen by the developers. Winning the fight awards a Legendary Token. The player can use boosts but cannot use team-ups in this fight.

Avengers vs. Ultron
Length of Event: 5 days
Event Information Post by the developers (which includes a detailed description of the enemy types): Avengers vs Ultron event info
Other Notes:
  • This is an alliance co-op PvE. You must join an alliance before starting the event. The first 20 players to join the event while in a single alliance will play the event together.
    • NOTE: the 21st player to join the PvE in the alliance will be playing on a new leaderboard (apart from the first 20 players), so alliances must be VERY careful to ensure only 20 players join the PvE under any single alliance.
    • If a player moves to alliance B after starting the event while a member of alliance A, the player will still be competing in the Avengers vs Ultron PvE under alliance A with the rest of the players who joined the PvE while in alliance A. NOTE: at least one player should remain in alliance A for the full run of the Avengers vs Ultron PvE; there have been problems in the past when temporary alliances were formed for this PvE and then completely abandoned before the event was completed.
  • There are two chapter buttons for the event; "Avengers vs Ultron" and "Ultron Prime"
    • "Avengers vs. Ultron"
      • Ultron's total health displays at the top in a global progress bar. All 20 members of your alliance will work to deplete Ultron's health.
      • The center node is the fight against Ultron. Ultron's total health will go down by inflicting damage to Ultron while fighting this node (win or lose). After fighting this node, it will be locked for 8 hours or until the player wins one of the five surrounding essential nodes.
      • The five surrounding essential nodes are wave/survival missions. These nodes unlock on a fixed 8 hour schedule from the start of the PvE regardless of when you last played them. Two of these five nodes require the same boosted/featured character and will remain constant throughout the event; the other three nodes will rotate between the rest of the boosted/featured characters on each refresh.
      • There are 8 rounds; each round an alliance wins will unlock a pin in the "Ultron Prime" chapter.
      • Ultron's total health increases each round. The total health per round varies based on whether a 3* character or a 4* character is being rewarded. However, Ultron's total health per fight per round remains the same and is as follows:
        • Round 1 - health 6750 - level 100
        • Round 2 - health 8385 - level 125
        • Round 3 - health 10010 - level 150
        • Round 4 - health 13260 - level 200
        • Round 5 - health 16510 - level 250
        • Round 6 - health 19760 - level 300
        • Round 7 - health 23010 - level 350
        • Round 8 - health 26260 - level 400
    • "Ultron Prime"
      • There are 8 nodes on this map. Each node is unlocked by the alliance winning a round in "Avengers vs. Ultron" (i.e. depleting Ultron's global health bar).
      • The last 3 nodes reward 3* or 4* character covers (one cover of each color).
  • There are no placement awards in this PvE (individual or alliance). There are progression awards in each of the 8 rounds of "Avengers vs. Ultron". There are also a good number of event token rewards available by winning against individual nodes in both the "Avengers vs. Ultron" and "Ultron Prime" maps.

  • For the events with main nodes after subs end, with the main nodes being one-time only (seems like a recent trend), maybe you can add a note saying that the one-time only nodes on the main have constant point values no matter how high or low you are in ranking (meaning you can do them at any time).
    Thanks for starting this guide by the way icon_e_smile.gif

    Thanks, flnn1, added a note to that effect.

    Also updated with ISO-8 Brotherhood information.
  • GrimSkaldGrimSkald Posts: 1,923 Chairperson of the Boards
    This is really awesome. I wonder who we need to ask to have it made sticky...
  • mags1587mags1587 Posts: 1,018 Chairperson of the Boards
    Updated with Heroic Venom.
  • I like this. Rb history for events would be helpful in making this the mack daddy if pve guides.
  • mags1587mags1587 Posts: 1,018 Chairperson of the Boards
    Thanks! Rubberbanding is such a moving target, though, as the devs keep making tweaks, I'm not sure how I'd go about documenting it.
  • HairyDaveHairyDave Posts: 1,574
    All you could realistically do is cite the historical examples and note that they're subject to constant change.

    why is this not updated and stickied?
  • mags1587mags1587 Posts: 1,018 Chairperson of the Boards
    The Deadpool PvE information was already in the main post from the last run so I didn't need to make any updates. If I find that there are any changes, though, I'll update them. Right now the only PvEs that still need to be filled in are The Hunt and Prodigal Sun, and I was waiting til D3 re-runs those events to make sure the info is accurate.

    As for getting the thread stickied, I don't know how that's handled; but given the number of stickies already in this forum I'm wondering if it might be worth it to try and combine the PvE guides somehow.
  • mags1587mags1587 Posts: 1,018 Chairperson of the Boards
    Added info for The Gauntlet. (May be updated as I finish playing through it.)
  • simonsezsimonsez Posts: 4,663 Chairperson of the Boards
    From what I'm hearing, the "no community scaling" in Gauntlet is incorrect.

    All in all, this is an excellent resource.
  • mags1587mags1587 Posts: 1,018 Chairperson of the Boards
    I really should have known that 'no scaling' bit was wishful thinking. Thanks, updated.
  • mags1587mags1587 Posts: 1,018 Chairperson of the Boards
    Updated with Prodigal Sun info.
  • mags1587mags1587 Posts: 1,018 Chairperson of the Boards
    The Unstable ISO-8 section was updated with more information about node refreshes. Please let me know if you have any suggestions on clarifying that section; I'm not sure how it will read to players unfamiliar with the PvE.
  • mags1587mags1587 Posts: 1,018 Chairperson of the Boards
    Updated with information for the Hunt. Let me know if anything is missing/incomplete. Side node: I actually have the names of the one time only/repeatable/essential nodes for each sub but decided putting them in the main post would be overkill. If people really want to have them, let me know and I'll add a separate post with them.

    Also, with the Hunt done this guide is now complete! (Until a new PvE event is run, that is.) Thanks to everyone who rated this post -- hope you find it as useful as I do. icon_e_smile.gif
  • Any chance you have the info on alliance rewards for subs? Or just info on where the cutoff is for Hero Points in the subs? All I can remember is Thick as Thieves and Iso-8 Brotherhood are Top 50 gets 50HP individual and alliances get event tokens top 200 I think. Those events are my favorite because they help expand my roster the fastest, and for my alliance the newer players need so much HP for their spots to have 1 cover guys for the essential nodes in other PvEs. Hopefully you do since you mentioned having the names of nodes.

    Those two events we should get next with maybe a Heroic or Simulator in between. I think this may be the last run through the episode before that new mode (new episode?) they teased as testing our mettle. I didn't even notice that PvE run in a set order through the Episodes before reading this guide. Great work!

    I do have the info on whether or not there were alliance rewards in the sub-events at all and that's been added to the post, but I don't have the information about the entire reward structure. Those details are usually listed in the first post of the event thread and are added when the event starts.

    If you want to check that for past events, there is this partial list of links to individual event threads created by darkmagearcanis. Current and Past PVE Listings Unfortunately, it seems that this is no longer being updated.
  • mags1587mags1587 Posts: 1,018 Chairperson of the Boards
    Updated because alliance rewards were removed from the Simulator sub-events.
  • mags1587mags1587 Posts: 1,018 Chairperson of the Boards
    Updated the Thick as Thieves section with the latest changes. The previous format for TaT has been saved below underneath the spoiler tags:
    Episode 3: Thick as Thieves
    Length of Event: 6.5 days
    Sub-Events? Yes; Alliance Rewards in Sub-Events? No
    Number of Sub-Events: 6
    Length of Sub-Events: 26 hours
    Main Nodes after Sub-Events End? Yes
    Other Notes:
    • There are 3 distinct subs that are run through twice.
    • Main nodes open when a global progress bar is filled.
    • Main nodes are only playable once after they open and have no rubberbanding.

    A section for the Meet Rocket & Groot event has been added; information will be updated as the event progresses.
  • mags1587mags1587 Posts: 1,018 Chairperson of the Boards
    Updated Meet Rocket & Groot sub-event length information.
