Earlier this week we got a sneak preview that something nefarious was coming to the DMKverse. Several leaks and a few guesses later, today we finally got confirmation of a new event incoming to the Magic Kingdom, and this one looks like a doozy. So, without further ado, let’s jump in a take a look at all the news to come out of today’s livestream.
Nightmares Come True
That’s right, Maleficent has found her way into the park and she’s built a scary tower. I would like to note right off the bat that Maleficent will NOT be a welcomable character during this event.
She’s also cursed several buildings, making them look all purple and slimy. But never fear, by tapping these buildings you can collect Maleficent Coins, the main currency for this event! Please note that if a building is cursed, you won’t be able to collect from it like normal until it is uncursed. So get tapping!
You can now send characters to the tower to try and defeat Maleficent.
You’ll select characters specific to the challenge and then send them to the challenge, which will last 2 hours. This will yield a certain amount of Reward points as well as Reward Coins.
Once a character has gone on a Challenge Quest, they will then be TIRED and will need to be Refreshed in order to be sent on the challenge quest again. In order to do this, you can spend a refresh token to get them back. You can also use the Refresh Now button to refresh all tired characters. However, this button can only be used ONCE PER DAY! Characters WILL NOT REFRESH AUTOMATICALLY. You must use one of the refreshes to get them back. This rule only doesn’t apply to the Featured Character who will never get tired. Yay for them! Each chapter will have a different featured character.
Chapter One’s featured character will be Jack Skellington. Chapter Two will be Ana and Chapter Three will be Mrs. Incredible.
The main character you will be trying to get for this event is Jack Jack of Incredibles fame. You’ll use Maleficent coins to purchase his tokens, because as they say: Nothing summons babies like defeating old evil witches. Wait… do they say that?
There are also plenty of other characters and items in the store, and this looks to be a great way to get some characters you may have missed from previous events!
I also want to mention that this event plays out in Chapters, which means that new items and new characters will become available to purchase in the store as new Chapters unlock.
Reward Points allow you to see your progress in the chapter. As you build them up, you can also get rewards like the Nightmare Concession Stand. Funny story, I actually refer to my Mom’s house as the Nightmare Concessions Stand. Coincidence? You tell me.
The more characters you send to challenge, and the higher level they are, the more reward points you can get from the challenge. So get your characters leveled up ASAP!
I also want to note that you shouldn’t REFRESH NOW until you have tired ALL of your characters for a day, since it can only be used once per day.
These can be earned by completing quest lines in Purple, much like any other event we’ve seen up to this point. These quests will also yield Maleficent coins.
There will be a leaderboard event in each chapter and finishing high will get you Maleficent tokens as well as special concessions.
When Will the Event Start?
All we were told was that the event will begin sometime next week.
What If I get lost?
There will be an event guide in game and FAQ’s on the main Facebook page as well!
Now we Wait!
