Exclusive Arcade Weekly Quest

With the introduction of the quick-play PvE Arcade mode in the Marching Fire™ expansion, Return of the Otherworld will bring the brand-new and very first Arcade Weekly Quest, specifically handcrafted for this special Halloween event. Embark on the most fearsome of quests to fight skeletons and deadly Shamans for exclusive cosmetic rewards

Thematic Community Orders

Which faction will survive the Endless March? Throughout the duration of the event, there will be a rotation of four different faction-based community orders. With each challenge, players within the faction that reach the combined objective first will receive 1,000 Steel + 2 crates, while second place receives 500 Steel + 1 crate and third place receives 500 Steel. Players can check back in-game to stay current on the newest community orders.

Exclusive Loot and Weapons

Return of the Otherworld also brings players new Halloween-themed rewards. Players can customize each of their favorite Heroes, including the new Wu Lin Heroes, with all-new Mask Outfits, transforming players into ghoulish versions of themselves.
