Good news for Champions Online fans: Cryptic is apparently poking around in the game’s innards with an eye toward fixing longstanding problems.
“We’re taking a look at some of the beloved content from Champions Online’s history that may have fallen into disrepair over the years,” the studio says. “After the update to Therakiel’s Temple, Eidolon was a big target, as we knew players loved it and couldn’t complete it in its current state. Therefore, we’ve gone through and made an update to the battle, with bug fixes and slight changes to the mechanics.”
The patch, expected on the game’s PTS “soon,” will fix Eidolon’s attacks, reduce the encounter timer to 20 minutes, stop some of Eidolon’s heals, make crystals more numerous and tricky to take down at their newly designated phases, and allow travel powers to be used while you’re fighting. “Fly around!” Cryptic suggests.
“Shadow Destroyer is beginning his end game, draining the power of the Qlipothic Realm to ascend, and become Destruction itself. You must journey into the heart of Nightmares and put a stop to him, Champions, before it’s too late. In the past, this battle may have seemed almost impossible, but the Qlipothic Realm has been merciful, and changed the rules of the engagement to make Eidolon vulnerable. Your time is now. Strike back for all of reality.”
Return to the battle with the Eidolon of Destruction, with a major overhaul! Coming soon!https://t.co/Mjhn21yLa2 pic.twitter.com/DRpX16mWns
