Greetings Defenders! We’re here to announce our next batch of events -- Hero Focus Weekends. Each of these weekends we’ll be increasing the drop rates for specific items, passives, and legendaries revolving around one (or more) of our heroes!

We encourage you to combine these items, your skill spheres, and other heroes to create your own unique builds. And then share those with the community! We can’t wait to see what you come up with.

Event List

  • Weekend of 8/14 - 3x Hearty Harpoon Squire Weapon Drop Rate  + 2x Legendary Drop Rate

  • Weekend of 8/21 - 3x Frost Fire Apprentice Weapon Drop Rate + 2x Legendary Drop Rate

  • Weekend of 8/28 - 3x Phoenix Call Huntress Weapon Drop Rate + 2x Legendary Drop Rate [Updated 8/26/15:  Monk was originally planned for this weekend, but his build will not be ready in time for the event.]


This weekend’s event is for the Frost Fire Apprentice! You can find more information about the Frost Fire apprentice passives, items, and skill spheres here.

All events will run from Friday 1 PM EDT to Monday 11 AM EDT. Weapon Drop Events will take place on all maps in Free Play and End Game modes. Legendary Drop Events will only take place in all maps on Free Play mode.

Tune in to this Friday’s Devstream at 5 pm EDT for a sneak peak at our new Huntress build!

Why the hell do you guys not run these events in end game, i spend hours and hours grinding INC NM4 liferoot forest, the only possible upgrades for me now are legendaries with the right kind of stats/passives, i want the 2x legendary drop rate for end game aswell, its not fair that people who are lower level in free play get legendary drops but the higher end game players dont! 

What drunk dev thought free play only events was a good idea....

Hey man.


Don't want to blame you but did you read the post?


All events will run from Friday 1 PM EDT to Monday 11 AM EDT. Weapon Drop Events will take place on all maps in Free Play and End Game modes. Legendary Drop Events will only take place in all maps on Free Play mode.


As you can see, your whole post was nonsense cause you didn't the news correctly ;). We have a saying in Germany "Think before you talk".

[[27427,users]] I read the post.... you clearly didnt i was talking about the 2x legendary drop rate not the WEAPON DROP.... theres 2 different events happening in the one event, the 3x drop rate for a specific weapon and the 2x drop rate for ALL legendaries, i clearly state "i want the 2x legendary drop rate for end game aswell" and it says specifically for the 2x drop rate of ALL legendaries "will only take place in all maps on free play mode"

So i say to you sir... there is a saying in Germany "think before you talk".

The event says the weapon drop events take place in Free Play, however the patch notes say that the new Legendary Frost Fire Staff only drops in Endgame.  Does this mean the new staff will drop in Free Play now?

Good to hear. I'd be ok with end game not having increased drop rate, however with the resist roll bug (who wants armor with 3 resist rolls?) it's not very exciting. Since the bug crept in earlier this week it's been almost impossible to find actual usable gear with more than 1 wanted stat, let alone a passive.

Yeah, if the resist bug on armor were fixed I'd be ok with no leg in end game. With it not its just going to be 98% garbage

I have been popping my head in for the odd game every few days, but nothing much as finding upgrades has become crazy slow, thats just how it goes and thats fine.

I keep thinking about coming back to play every time i see one of these events BUT as you keep restricting these worthwhile events to freeplay only and not endgame, I fail to see the point, some people will love to play around with the new stat types and to those people I wish you a weekend of fun and enjoyment, but how about the people that play because they enjoy farming for the best gear and building the best characters?

now if I saw 2x legend drop rate on endgame maps? sure, i will come play for the weekend as my chances of getting upgrades will be up again to a good level, but ... meh, whatever, no love for endgame players again.

I really like that Trendy is experimenting with events.  If I could offer some criticism though:

Character focused events are certainly nice, especially when releasing new passives and things to try out with them.  At the same time, there are still 3 other classes that are being geared currently.  With the way current itemization works (in that gear good for one class is not at all valuable to another), you're effectively reducing the droprate for other characters over the course of the event.  It's great for people who want/need the given passive, but it leaves others to dry.

I'd say of the event ideas done up to date, the best would probably have been the second event, where it was just a flat increase to all legendaries.  In that way, it benefits everyone regardless of class.

Either way, I like the effort being put into special events, they add nice flavor to the game.
