Event: Midtown Madness
The Omega Event will wrap up tonight at Midnight PST, and Midtown Madness will begin!
Bosses in Midtown Manhattan will drop a Midtown Madness box which contains all kinds of loot, including a chance at Midtown specific Uniques, artifacts and rings!
Midtown Fortune cards also drop from bosses during Midtown Madness. These can drop Cosmic Rings, Epic Team-Up Gear, Epic Insignias, Random Cosmic Medallions, special Midtown Uniques, and have a very rare chance to drop a Random Costume or Ultimate Upgrade Token!
As a nod to the 59th street geography of Midtown, there will be a server side 59% bonus to Experience, Special Item Find and Rare Item Find.
