Week of August 30th to September 6th
September 6th – Rebel Target – Blackwing
A new rebel target has spawned, called the Blackwing. New permanent gear has been released to accompany it. The materials for the corresponding permanent gear can be obtained through Blackwing crates in specially marked gold packs, by attacking Blackwing rebel targets, or by gathering from the Blackwing Drop Zone it leaves behind when defeated.
A building has been released, called the Monument. It allows you to activate Mission Insignias, which temporarily increase the quality of Alliance, Daily, and VIP quests. This means they will reward increased amounts of XP, materials, and resources. Mission Insignias are permanently in your inventory, but they require a cooldown period.
A new feature has been added. This is a potentially game-changing ability, called Building Boosts. Aside from the profoundly creative name, they allow you to summon permanent boosts assigned on a per building basis. The boosts differ by building, and vary widely in terms of magnitude. Each building has an XP Modifier, which increases are you spend Building Modifiers. As the XP Modifier increases, the likelihood of better boosts increases. Building Modifiers are the consumable item that is spent to boost buildings, and they can be obtained in gold packs and by completing Challenges. If you want to go back to a previous boost, you can use Bonus Rescues to do so. They are also consumable.
