New Burn Mechanics: “Persistent Burn” (Part 1) 

You can burn any 5 Common cards (Heroes or Villains) to create 1 random Uncommon card. Similarly, you can burn 5 Uncommon cards to create 1 random Rare, 5 Rare cards to create 1 Epic, 5 Epic for 1 Legendary, and 5 Legendary for 1 Mythic. This should give you an idea of just how rare each rarity level will become. As for the burning mechanism, you can burn any combination of Series 2 (NOT Series 1!) Heroes or Villains, the new randomly upgraded card will be the next mint after the pre-mint set (see the earlier Phase sections for mint info), and there are no limits to the number of cards you can upgrade! In this way, we hope to keep the minting mechanics “new” throughout the lifetime of the set, with new mintings of higher tiered variations happening gradually over time. We will start this burn at 12:00 noon on Friday, December 18, exactly 72 hours after the start of the Series 2 sale.        

New Burn Mechanics: “Persistent Burn” (Part 2) 

You can burn a FULL SET of 20 Heroes or 20 Villains of *any* rarity to create a NEW Collector’s Edition Common card. Importantly, these amazing new cards will be minted in order of creation. So, a full set of 20 Common cards will result in 1 Common CE, a set of 20 Uncommons will result in 1 Uncommon CE, a set of 20 Rares will produce 1 Rare CE, a set of 20 Epics will create 1 Epic CE, and 20 Legendaries will create 1 Legendary CE. Note that you will NOT be able to mix Heroes and Villains together to get to 20 cards. You must burn a full set of either 20 Heroes *OR* 20 Villains. 

New Reveals!

Tonight we revealed all 10 of the new Collector’s Edition cards, listed below. Check out the Hero Report replay to see them. Remember these are ONLY available through the burn mechanism outlined above! 

  • 20 Common = 1 Common Sentinel-256 (Hero) CE or Whisper (Villain) CE 
  • 20 Uncommon = 1 Uncommon Mina Cheri (Hero) CE or Encryptkeeper (Villain) CE 
  • 20 Rare = 1 Rare Admiral Banks (Hero) CE or Lady Iris (Villain) CE
  • 20 Epic = 1 Epic Grand Auditor (Hero) CE or Nathan Nyse (Villain) CE  
  • 20 Legendary = 1 Legendary Disciple (Hero) CE or Rez’Phede (Villain) CE 

More on Artifacts… 

As we mentioned last week, we are introducing 9 new Artifacts, which can only be required as follows. During Phase 1, Artifact #1 will ONLY drop from a Hero Pack, Artifact #2 will ONLY drop from a Titan Pack, and Artifact #3 will ONLY drop from a Gallery Crate. Similarly, during Phase 2, Artifact #4 will ONLY drop from a Hero Pack, Artifact #5 will ONLY drop from a Titan Pack, and Artifact #6 will ONLY drop from a Gallery Crate. And in Phase 3, as you can probably predict by now, Artifact #7 will ONLY drop from a Hero Pack, Artifact #8 will ONLY drop from a Titan Pack, and Artifact #9 will ONLY drop from a Gallery Crate. Hero Packs will have a 2% drop rate, Titan Packs a 6.6% drop rate, and Gallery Crates a 10% drop rate. There will only be 100 of EACH Artifact minted! And if you are determined and enough to collect a complete set, you can opt to burn a complete set of Artifacts using our special burn tool for a 90% chance to get an Ascended 1/1 Artifact, and… a 10% chance to get the ULTIMATE Reward:

***A 10% Chance to Get Your OWN Hero or Villain Card!***
