Spring Event badges are upon us!

Recommended Posts

So as of today, Feb 1 the Spring Event is running.  use the Paragon Wiki link below to read up on it in case you have forgotten it.

 

https://paragonwiki.com/wiki/Valentine's_Day_Event_2012

 

A few details to note:

 

1.  You cannot auto complete the Scratch/Ganymede missions.  You must actually play both parts of them. 

 

2. The Valentine delivery missions are talk missions so don't bother with mission transporter.

 

3. Level One alts do not seem to be able to start the mission to revive Red Widow.

 

4. The Valentine costume pieces are already in the tailor, so you only need the Snaptooth mission for the badges.

 

5. Valentine tips drop randomly from any target at any level. So if you are level 50 and want to street sweep in Perez Park, you can still get the tips

One further note about the Scratch/Ganymede missions. If you pre-clear the second mission before inviting someone of the opposite alignment to help with the click at the end, they won't get credit for the mission and won't get the badge (assuming they don't already have it). So you might want to check with them first to see if they need the badge and be willing to reset the mission, if you pre-cleared it.

Scratch/Ganymeded can be solo'd, you just have to have the mission as the active task, and then talk to Null the Gull to change your alignment. I also entered then exited the mission first, just to be safe.

How does this work exactly? 

Do you get the mission as a hero, set it as active, enter / exit mission, change alignment to villain, enter and finish mission? 

Or do you need to clear part of the mission as a hero and part as a villain?

Ganymede contact: start as a hero. Run the mission as a hero. Once you cannot proceed without a villain, if you are solo, you may then exit the mission and switch alignment at Null the Gull. Re-enter the mission and complete the villain objective. Then revisit Null the Gull to return to hero alignment before speaking with Ganymede again. 

 

Scratch: same but not the same. Start as a villain until the hero objective, switch to hero, and return to villain standing prior to speaking with the contact again.

Common question regarding number of badges:

  • Four valentines badges are only available now during the February event
    • Beautiful (female body type) / Handsome (male body type)
    • Partygoer  
    • Heart of Light (heroes) / Heart of Darkness (villains)
    • Widow Maker
  • Two valentines badges are available year round (see "Valentines Delivery Badges" thread) 
    • Match Maker
    • Missed Connection
  • One valentines badge is just a second chance at Snaptooth. He was previously available during the Winter Event.
    • Toothbreaker
  • One valentines badge is a gladiator unlock (for Snaptooth badge). 
    • Red Cap

 

Common question for contacts regarded how to unlock DJ Zero:

  • Ganymede was immediately available to heroes. Scratch for villains. Both contacts' arcs must be completed.
  • Once I finished them, they directed me to DJ Zero.
  • DJ Zero led me to villainside contact Arbiter Hawk (Pocket D, red side). His hero equivalent is: Jessica Megan Duncan (Pocket D, blue side).

 

Advice given to me for Red WIdow mission:

Spoiler

Save 2 lives... get 3 obols. 

 

Ritual choices:

  • Start with the obols
  • Place one obol in the circle
  • Let's start improvising
  • Cut yourself and bleed into the circle
  • Place the amber widow into the circle
  • Place 2 more obols
  • Uncork the bottle containing the dying breath.

Yes I have noticed no major changes from when the game was live

Technically, since the snaptooth badge appears to be grouped with the spring badges that the winter event is the second chance for snaptooth, but no biggie.

 

The only major change comes from Nul the Gull instant alignment changes so that players can solo ganymede and scratch arcs and not seek a player of opposite alignment to complete. back in the day you had to do the alignment/morality mission and with the cool down time before shifting again back then, you had to team with another person to finish these arcs

 

Also I have observed that the widow Maker badge only awards to the mission holder, anyone else on the team that does not have the mission also will not get it.

As to the Valentine's delivery badges being year round, I wouldn't take that for granted and recommend every work those badges now while the Valentine tips are easily obtained, rather then the redside glitch

A lev l one alt can g t the ganymede and scratch missions just walk up to them and click on them. Once both are done you can then speak to dj zero.

 

Have to be L30+ for the red widow mission

Just noticed that Valentine tips will drop while in an architect mission.   I do not recall them doing that back in the day

Also, ran a quick test.   Delivering valentines is a solo endeavor.  Progress for the badge only counts for the one who had teh valentine delivered, teammates gain no progress.

Minor note: I had an alt of mine PL'd  from 25 to 30 to obtain the Valentine mission from Ms Liberty, turns out you can get the mission from her if you have dinged Level 30 but not yet trained to 30.   However the mission is still level 30 so yes, training to 30 is still recommended.

Toothbreaker is FAR easier to obtain during the Spring Event:

Spoiler

1) Enter the mission and find the mission objective.

2) Wait for Snaptooth and minions to come to you.

Superbase passcode (Excelsior) is "passcode-6475"

 

It's all a Nemesis plot.  But not everything is a Nemesis plot!

Spring event as a whole is the easiest of the holiday events.

 

I would say winter is the next toughest due to the Lord Winter league part of it, and th monotony of getting 200 presents for toy collector.

 

Summer event is harder then both winter and spring due to the foes you face in the collisieum and that you are level capped at mid level.

 

The hardest event imo, is Halloween.  One zombie invasion should get you those four badges, finding jqck and eochai is fairly easy though jack appears to still be the rare spawn,  trick or treat can be challenging for low level characters, plus the grind of getting the three costume badges, the Halloween tip mission needs to be done multiple times but can be ghosted.   The main thing is the banner event. With enough people you could get all badges in one event but willlikely have to wait for a couple of the events to get them. Then there is Dr Kane's mansion.

 

Halloween has the most badges of the events as I recall.
