PlayerAuctions Breaks Down Path Of Exile's Turmoil And Mayhem Events
December 06, 2017 (PRLEAP.COM) Technology NewsIt's been a month since Path of Exile celebrated its fourth "birthday," and with the Harbinger Challenge League having recently wrapped up, Grinding Gear Games announced a couple of 10-day events, Turmoil and Mayhem, both of which were held during beta testing for The Fall of Oriath, and were brought back by popular demand. These events both feature/featured special mechanics and unique challenges, albeit with all of these mechanics and challenges being the same for all players, in the best interest of keeping things fair. While the former event has since wrapped up, there's still time to join in and win exciting prizes by taking part in the Mayhem event, which will continue on until December 5.
What Happened In The Turmoil Event
Path of Exile's Turmoil was a 10-day event that was held from November 11 to November 21 of this year, with three variations - Standard, Hardcore, and Hardcore Solo-Self Found. The mechanics involved all areas except towns and the Twilight Strand being populated by inhabitants of one out of nine enemy type. These mods rotated once per hour and just as we stated in the summary, the rules applied to all players, with no exceptions.
Winners of the Path of Exile Turmoil event, meaning those who topped each Ascendancy class, received an Alternate Art Demigod's Dominance. Those who reached level 35 received a Chaos and Order Mystery Box, with a maximum of one box per account; Grinding Gear made it clear that players would receive only one box even if they had multiple characters leveled up to level 35. A variety of microtransactions were also awarded for free to players who leveled up their characters to certain milestone levels at the time the event was live.
What's In It For You In The Mayhem Event?
The Path of Exile Mayhem event started at 4 a.m. of November 25, depending on your local time, and if you haven't taken part in it yet, you've still got a few days to join in, as the event ends on December 5, 5 a.m. local time. Likewise, you have three event variants to choose from (Standard, Hardcore, Hardcore Solo Self-Found), and a ton of prizes to win, which we shall be explaining below.
The possible mods inhabiting areas in Mayhem are 20x Rogue Exiles, 20x Tormented Spirits, 20x Invaders, 20x Strongboxes, or 10x Breaches. These are rotating mods that change once an hour, and again apply to all players. One very important thing to take note of, however, is that you can use microtransactions, but your characters and items will not be transferred to parent leagues once the Path of Exile Mayhem event ends.
Once again, the top prize for Ascendancy class leaders is an Alternate Art Demigod's Dominance, and the set prize for players who reach level 35 is a Chaos and Order Mystery Box, one box maximum for everyone, regardless of how many characters are leveled up. Reaching Level 40 will get you 200 of either Arctic Footprints, Lightning Footprints, or Ebony Footprints, and level 55 features a random draw where you can get 50 of Arctic, Lightning, Ghostflame, Infernal, or Gore Skull.
The above-mentioned microtransaction rewards get even better as you reach levels 65, 75, 85, and 90, and if you're one of the top 100 players, you have a 25 percent chance of winning either a Stormcaller Armour Pack, a Stormcaller Back Attachment, or Arcane Shield. There's also another random draw, five out of the top 100 players will get a Celestial Weapon Effect.
Once again, Path of Exile Mayhem runs until December 5, so mark that date down – time's running out, but you're still welcome to join the event as we speak!
