The Dark Reflections

The Dark Reflections are casting dark spells

  • Faceless Shadow wanders the streets searching for prey
  • Sorcerer Jester pounces with jokes and pranks
  • Behind-the-mirror Witch lures unsuspecting people into her mirror

Banishing requirements follow the previous established pattern for banishing event creatures. Banishing them will award the new fixers required to combine the new collections. These creatures will disappear as soon as the event is over, either by the completion of the Sorcerer's Spell challenge or by time running out.

Completing the Timed ChallengesEdit

Keep in mind that the more you play the Location, the higher the Location Rank you will achieve for the Location, and the more access passes will be required for each play of that Location.

As a guide, in order to reach Virtuoso Rank on the Mirror Hall Location, and win the new Avatars, you will need to play the Location approximately 150 times, which will require approximately 3,285 Mirror Shard Access Passes!
