Dear Sarnaut,

Update 7.0 “New Order” will unlock 4 new Astral allods and 6 single-player adventures. Apart from raid adventures, these activities will be the main source of equipment.

The single-player adventures are called “Distortions” which you'll have to pass on your own – yes, even without the help of mercenaries. Completing them will reward you with whole sets of rare and epic equipment, and also with transformation dust for working with equipment of any other quality, including legendary.

ID

Note that Distortions will be an alternative and not a replacement for other regular activities. The same rewards will be obtained on Astral allods with a group of fellow players or mercenaries. While rewards on Astral allods will be slightly higher, completing a Distortion will take less time. Both types of activities will consume the same amount of Astral keys and will be accessed through the Skirmishes window.

ID

In the storyline context, Distortions are alternative versions of the past. As you complete quests from level 65 to 70, you will travel through time, which creates numerous alternative realities. Some of them can have a truly tragic impact, so someone will have to clean up the mess throughout time and space on a regular basis!

"Whatever happens, stay away from the butterflies!"
(The first Time Traveler’s rule)

Do not expect to ask Tensess for an autograph, for you will only be able to travel to 6 points in time and space, all of which will be related to the allod of Dane. Despite this fact, the events inside of these Distortions will always take sudden turns. You will never know what kind of enemy you will face and what exactly you will have to do to win. Sometimes you will need to act stealthily, and sometimes a hasty rush into battle with help from unexpected allies will be in order. Every visit to a Distortion provides different variations of the same events.

ID

Only one thing is certain – you will have to fight big, strong bosses. Defeating especially strong enemies in Distortions will reward you with extraordinary trophies, so brace yourself, hero! Some blows from these bosses will be strong enough to send your Spark immediately to Purgatory. In order to win, you will need to study enemies’ behaviour and promptly react to their actions. This will be great practice for new players before they start their group flights to Astral allods!

ID

As we have already said, there will be four new allods, three of which you are already familiar with – Reflection of Tensess Temple, Turtle Island, and Zalesky Posad. Apart from them, another highly anticipated group adventure will become available.

ID

This allod will be called Plague City, and its visitors will become unwillingly engaged in fighting an epidemic. You will need to do three things in order to stop the disease:

A) Implement curfew... B) Check everyone for contamination... C) Incinerate all violators and infected citizens...

This might not be the most humane method, though it's definitely the most efficient one.

ID


On Astral allods, you will be able to collect full sets of rare, epic, and legendary equipment – and also transformation dust for working with equipment of any quality. However, fabled equipment will be only obtained in raid adventures.

ID

To summarize: rare and epic equipment will be obtained in Distortions and on Astral allods; legendary equipment via allods, and equipment of any quality in raid adventures. Don't worry, a vivid table in-game will help you familiarize.
