New Hero: X-23
X-23 has arrived in Marvel Heroes 2015! Use her Adamantium claws to shred through enemies, causing bleeds, performing various acrobatic attacks, and even slip into Stealth! X-23 is focused on two playstyles, one of which allows her to shred enemies with her Adamantium claws, causing stacks of bleeds and comboing various melee abilities while the other relies on her agility and movement powers.
RETURNING EVENT: A.R.M.O.R. INCURSION!
A.R.M.O.R. Incursion has returned to Marvel Heroes! Assist Jocasta and the agents of A.R.M.O.R. by taking down super villains and receiving A.R.M.O.R. Research Drives! These can be turned in to Jocasta for various rewards!

A Reliquary of Rarity can now be purchased for 200 A.R.M.O.R. drives.

25 A.R.M.O.R. Drives
All-Father Brevik (Bovineheim)
10 A.R.M.O.R. Drives
7 A.R.M.O.R. Drives
Cosmic Terminal Doctor Doom

NOTE: These may show up directly into your currency tab and not drop on the ground.
Normal enemies throughout the game have a small chance of dropping an ARMOR Drive. There is no “insurance policy” timer on these drops, so nothing is guaranteed, but this will have a noticeable effect for anyone defeating normal enemies in any zone.
Red Bosses have a small chance of dropping a bonus ARMOR Drive
Cosmic Bosses have a higher chance of dropping a bonus ARMOR Drive (and Doctor Doom always drops 2 more)
Daily Login Gift
30 A.R.M.O.R. Drives are included with the A.R.M.O.R. Bounty Chest each day for simply logging in during the A.R.M.O.R. Incursion Event.
New Hero: Venom
The Lethal Protector has arrived! Use your massive strength, oozing tendrils, organic webbing and gnashing teeth to tear through your foes – showing none of Puny Parker’s restraint. Venom features a new Primary Resource mechanic known as Ichor which is gained by using powers that spend Venom’s health! Ichor can in turn be used to spend on powerful attacks for big damage, many of which regain your health! The give and take between health and Ichor represents the symbiotic relationship between the alien symbiote and its host.
Event: Winter Festivities & Season’s Greetings
Holiday Spirit Buffs
Pick up Holiday Spirit power-ups and you’ll enjoy a glowing slowflake above your head and an icon on your buff bar that offers you a chance to defeat a specific boss to receive special gifts!
When you defeat that boss, you’ll receive a special Holiday loot bonus that includes a Holiday Tree credit item, and Festive Giftboxes that can contain small loot drops or very rare items. The power-up goes away once you receive the Holiday Spirit loot.
You can receive guaranteed Holiday Spirit power-ups from the first completed Shared Quests of the Day.
Additionally, the same Festive Giftboxes can drop in all areas of the game, regardless of whether or not you have a Holiday Spirit buff!
Midtown Manhattan Patrol has been transformed by the snowy weather! Check out the new scenery in Midtown and beware the new Ice Golems!
The former mob affix ‘Crippling’ (which replaced Slow Aura in the last major patch), has been renamed to ‘Chilling’ to go along with the Winter scenery, and now debuffs the player with an icy visual.
Snowy Midtown debuts a new boss affix, Winter’s Grasp, which will be featured on the Winter’s Horde golems found there, in addition to being added to the standard boss affix pool.
New One-Shot: March to Axis
Red Skull has returned to take back control of the HYDRA forces! Uber-loyal members of HYDRA’s legion have surfaced and donned their true uniforms (red in color) in order to assert the dominance of Red Skull as the one true leader. This has created somewhat of a civil war between HYDRA, including Madame Hydra, and Red Skull with his forces.
Nick Fury, ever vigilant for intel regarding global threats, knows of the coup and sees the confusion as the perfect opportunity to infiltrate HYDRA Island and take out BOTH factions vying for leadership. He has sent a highly advanced S.H.I.E.L.D. Stealth Submarine loaded with his best agents…and heroes, of course!
New Feature! Gifting!
Players are now able to gift heroes and other items from the G Store to another player! To send someone a gift, simply head to the in-game store and click ‘Send A Gift’, then choose the recipient and gift. Not all items in the store are available for gifting at this time – costumes in particular will be added at a later date.
Please note: it is against our Terms of Service to use Gifting to acquire in-game items and action will be taken against accounts found doing so, just as we do for those found selling in-game items for real money.
Today’s patch is very small and primarily focuses on bug fixes in addition to one starter roster change that missed the last build.
The starter roster has changed for new players. New players will no longer be able to level Daredevil to 10, but will instead be able to level Cyclops.
Fixed an issue where map edge pointers would fail to display most of the time.
Fixed an issue where festive gifts would fail to open.
Fixed an issue where ‘cosmic’ rarity festive gifts would fail to drop.
Fixed an issue where Red Skull was dropping one of Man-Ape’s items.
Fixed an issue where opening your inventory made the ‘credits’ sound effect.
Event: Cosmic Chaos
EVENT: COSMIC CHAOS RETURNS!
Cosmic Bosses Drop Double Loot – All cosmic Terminal bosses, every time.
Cosmic Questions Answered – 42% server-side multiplicative boost to Rare Item Find, Special Item Find and Experience for all your heroes.
Cosmic Prestige Doubled – Doubled leveling rate for Cosmic Prestige during Cosmic Chaos week.
Cosmic Chaos Supplier: Moondragon – An honorary member of the Guardians of the Galaxy and daughter of Drax the Destroyer, Moondragon is no stranger to cosmic chaos. During the Cosmic Chaos event, Moondragon will exchange Cosmic Worldstones for a variety of items.
NEW: A gifted (bound to your account) Doop rune can now be purchased from Moondragon for 500 Cosmic Worldstones.
The Doop rune has an increased chance of dropping from all Doops during the Cosmic Chaos event.
The Omega, Cosmic, and A.R.M.O.R. Event Vendors will now always be available in the West Wing of Avengers Tower.
Black Widow’s Timed Explosive bonus damage when triggered manually should once again scale correctly with ranks in Remote Detonation.
Fixed an issue where movement powers would fail to deal damage if queued after another power.
Fixed an issue with Star-Lord’s Elemental Blast that prevented queued powers from activating after using Elemental Blast.
Fixed an issue where the Brutal Rating on Magneto Was Right T-shirt wasn’t displaying
Fixed an issue with Magneto’s Signature Storm of Steel failing to activate when spammed while holding the key for another continuous power.
Fixed an issue where Red Skull’s Dust of Death Slot 1 was upgrading to values that were higher than intended. The +ranks to ranged powers was to be treated the same as +to trees and is only supposed to increase 1 rank at 69.
Fixed an issue where the Malekith and Venom Medallion effects were falling off after activating due to going above the health threshold. Additionally, the cooldown on the Malekith Medallion is now displayed
Fixed an issue where Power Up ‘Gifts’ were not ticking down in Raid Zones. They should now tick down in all zones.
Fixed an issue where Reliquaries of Rarity above your level would not show the locked item border.
Ice Golems now count as Gigantic enemies, and count toward Subterranean and Tendrils of Limbo.
Industry City Reward boxes will now drop at the level of the region and thus have a level requirement to open them. This is to correct the issue where heroes would level with the boxes in low level Industry City regions, out-level the region, and then continue to out-level it by one-shotting enemies and acquiring the boxes quickly. This was causing a bad player experience for other players in the zone and was not intended. Industry City Reward boxes that have already been acquired will not be affected by this change.
Magneto’s Magnetic Attraction now deals Energy damage as intended instead of Physical
Resolved issue with Sentinels with Mega-Sentinel in Midtown not counting for boss defeat Legendary Quest credit, but the Sentinels discoveries counting for boss credit.
Tactical Neural Implant Omega Node now specifies that it gives Melee Crit Rating (as intended).
Wolverine’s signature power should no longer be canceled mistakenly by activating other powers. Additional bug fixes to Wolverine will be coming in next week’s patch.
If you ordered the Team-Up Advance Pack, you will receive Arachne today! Arachne will be available in the store for other players after at least 30 days.
Password Not Working?
If you are unable to login (the login button does not light up) it’s because your password is too short! Head to the MarvelHeroes.com website and change your password to have at least 8 characters (as well as our other new security requirements).
Arachne’s powers should all do Mental Damage instead of Physical, Energy and Mental Damage.
Super Group chat is currently not functioning.
Magneto’s Storm of Steel will halt you in place unless you are already moving when you use the power. To get around this, hold the movement button before using the ability (putting you in ‘drive mode’) and continue moving until the power is complete.
Event: Operation Omega
During Operation Omega, the first time you complete a Shared Quest each day will reward double Omega Orb rewards.
Omega Level Buffs!: XP, RIF, and SIF increase by 24% every day.
Omega leveling is 24% faster during Operation Omega. This works well with the Omega-Level buffs to experience.
Agent Coulson offers a mission during Operation Omega week. Each day, you can complete five or more waves in the S.H.I.E.L.D. Holo-Sim to receive a reward from him. This will help hone your skills to be prepared for Omega-Level threats. During the event, any enemy can drop a powerful artifact called The Omega Drive.
S.H.I.E.L.D. OMEGA ACCESS FILES
During Operation Omega, players can earn up to 100 Omega Access Files each day. Omega Access files are not random drops, they may be specifically earned:
10 Omega Access Files for logging in each day.
30 Omega Access Files for completing Coulson’s training mission each day.
60 Omega Access Files for completing the Shared Quests each day. (20 each)
NEW: Kiss of the Viper, The Dust of Death and Coat of the Skull have been added to the Mysterious Blue Omega Box.
