A new, daunting task awaits
The Radiant Escalation event, along with Version 1.10.3, go live in Dauntless on May 26th, 2022. In advance of that update, a new trailer showcasing the Radiant Escalation event has been released. You can take in all the action in that trailer above.
The last several months have been extremely trying for the Orrery. Researchers at an Avellanian research facility have been making concerted attempts at capturing the Chronovore – to study and harness the time-bending Behemoth’s infinite power. Now, at long last, they have succeeded in extracting this beast from the timestream. But alas, things are not going the way they had hoped …
In Radiant Escalation, travel to a distant Avellanian research facility currently under the siege of both Ostia and time itself. Fight your way through this facility to unlock dynamic new amps for boosting your abilities between rounds. New amps include Crash Course, Flicker, Homefield Advantage, and others.
- Crash Course is a new Squad Goals-style amp focused on Stagger damage. It brings with it an updated way of displaying Squad Amps in the chat box.
- Flicker is a moment of near-invulnerability granted when you unleash your lantern’s power.
- Homefield Advantage lets you bring your banner into play. Flying your flag will generate a powerful aura for you and your team.
Also unique to this Escalation is a puzzle mechanic. As you progress through the first four arenas, keep your eyes peeled for hidden secrets that will give you a special advantage before you enter the final arena. In the final arena, confront the mysteries of this research facility and face off with the capstone Behemoth of Radiant Escalation – the Chronovore!
With the Chronovore pulled from its time loop on The Paradox Breaks, a large amount of excess radiant aether remains on the island. Activating the Paradoxicon seems to attract a new, never-before-seen type of winged beast to the island – the Alyra. Battle this beguiling new Behemoth to craft the full range of Glyph Weaver weapons and the Spellbound armour skin set from its parts. Glyph Weaver weapons boast a unique weapon effect that either deals additional radiant damage or grants stacking shields to all Slayers in a radius, based on the active glyph type and lantern use.
