Update: 5-Star characters are the strongest characters in the game, but they're also some of the rarest. We've received a lot of positive feedback from players, telling us that Saved Covers has been a lot of help, but we've also heard the feedback on how we can improve the feature. Waiting for 5-Star covers to be saved can mean a long time before they level up, so we want to make this experience a bit better for players.

Following this Wednesday's (6/20) patch update, 5-Star characters will only require 3 saved covers, in order to trade them in for a new level in any of that character's powers. Please note that if you already have 4 or 5 covers saved, prior to this change, the display will look a bit odd afterwards, but your covers will be safe. Once you redeem those covers, then the maximum changes to 3.
Hi Everyone,

Getting a new character cover is supposed to be an exciting occurrence, and most of the time it is! You open up that shiny pack, or compete in a hard-fought event, and earn a brand new cover; growing your roster stronger because of it.

Other times though, you hope to find that last 13th cover to complete a character’s power set, only to discover it’s a power you have 5 covers in already. We understand that can be frustrating, so we want to make that a better experience for players moving forward.

On June 18th in R155, we’re introducing a new feature called Saved Covers.

Saved Covers
allows you to store covers you aren’t able to use, in order to convert them into another power’s level.


  • Available only for 2-Star characters and higher.
  • Covers can be saved on non-Champion characters, who have less than 13 total covers.

  • When a character’s power is at max level, further covers of that power in your Reward Cache can be saved.
    • Covers can be saved from the Reward Cache or when viewing the character in the Roster screen

  • A maximum of five covers can be saved to a single character. (3 if it's a 5-Star)
  • Once you have saved five (3 if it's a 5-Star) covers on a character, you can trade them for a single power of your choice on the same character.

  • Covers that are saved, before a character is Championed, are automatically converted into Champion levels once the character is Championed. This way, no covers are lost if you happen to find that last 13th cover while working to save five covers.
  • If you have a Championed character and another recruited character with five levels in a power, you can add the cover as a Champion level, save the cover for the un-Championed character, or recruit a new character.
    • Selecting the “star” in the right corner of the cover in the Reward Cache screen will give you the option to add the Champion level or recruit the character.
    • Saving the cover can be done when viewing the un-Championed character in your Roster Screen.
  • Saved covers can’t be used to Power Shift powers. (Power Shifting is when you remove one level in a power in order to increase the level in another power.)
We hope that you all enjoy this new feature!
