Infect and dominate! Virus Eddie is making his Legacy of the Beast debut.

Virus Eddie is a 3* Warrior that deals additional true damage for each negative effect on the enemy. This multi-target damager can inflict HP Drain on enemies for 2 turns, revive an ally with full HP, and give HP Regen to all allies. He also passively removes one beneficial effect from all enemies and inflicts Passive Disable on a random enemy for 2 turns every time he takes damage.




From now until June 21st, 5 PM PT, claim new Frontier Keys and unlock the Viral Frontier Dungeon! This Dungeon comes with its own unique storyline (viewable the first time you complete Normal difficulty), and let’s you work towards a GUARANTEED Virus Eddie!

Even if you are unable to secure enough character fragments to earn this character during the event, the Viral Frontier Dungeon will be available again in the future. That means you’ll be able to keep collecting Virus Eddie fragments at a later date, so be sure to hold on to everything you earn!

How to earn Virus Eddie Fragments!

5654

Step 1: Complete Event Challenges in Brave New World.

Battle in Brave New World, and apply positive effects to your team to complete Viral Frontier Event Challenges! These challenges will grant a variety of rewards, including Viral Frontier Fragments, Talisman Soul Fragments and Cosmic Evo Runes!

You can earn up to 1000 Viral Frontier Fragments from Event Challenges.

Step 2: TRADE Viral Frontier Fragments for Viral Frontier Keys in Store!

Head to the Event Store and trade in the Viral Frontier Fragments you’ve earned for Viral Frontier Keys!

50 Viral Frontier Fragments = 1 Key

You have the chance to gain up to 20 Keys total during this event.

As soon as you claim your Key from the Event Store, the Viral Frontier Dungeon will unlock in the Time Rift!

IMPORTANT: Purchasing another Viral Frontier Key while there is already a Viral Frontier Dungeon open will reset both the dungeon’s countdown timer AND play attempts (i.e. Obtaining another Viral Frontier Key when there are 6 hours, and 4 playthroughs remaining in the Viral Frontier Dungeon will reset the timer to 16 hours, and 15 playthroughs).

Step 3: BATTLE in the Viral Frontier Dungeon to EARN Virus Eddie Fragments

Head to the Time Rift and battle in the Viral Frontier Dungeon! Once it is unlocked, this Dungeon will be open for 16 hours total, and can be played through 15 times during that period. The Dungeon will close again once the 15 playthroughs are completed, or when the 16 hour limit is reached (whichever occurs first).

The first time you complete one of the 3 floors available, you will receive set rewards including Frontier Coins and unique Cosmic Evo Materials like, Starlight and Black Rain. All subsequent victories are guaranteed to provide Virus Eddie Soul Fragments, as well as a chance of up to 2 bonus rewards, including Ironite.

750 Virus Eddie Fragments = 1 Guaranteed Virus Eddie

See full Virus Eddie character details in his forum post! (https://forum.ironmaidenlegacy.com/showthread.php?11923-Virus-Eddie-(Warrior-Type))

**Important: Virus Eddie is not currently available in any other Souls.

Can we open and play the virus dungeon whenever we use the key or is it only available during this event? With all the grinding required for this I am wondering where I am going to get the time to play yet another dungeon?

Oh and does Perfect Titan Shield count towards Titan Shield Challenge I wonder? I am thinking of Virtual XI Eddie's basic would help get through that one nicely. I am going to assume though that no it doesn't...

There's not much grinding for this event. Green pyro and wickerman can take care of attack up, magic up, mr up and def up with there passive. If you use a titan shield talisman set on 1 toon for each of 100 battles, that's taken care of.

Bass Eddie will give you Echo but you gotta manual that stuff.

06-16-2019, 02:20 AM
I'm going to try Allied General, S. Pyro for all the up stuff and W. Pharaoh Dog for echo. Then just run my characters with Titan Shield in one go I guess.

Update - one run on GoL VIII gave 20 for all the up stuff and 11 echos. So 20 runs should cover all the up challenges.

Yes.. S Maclo Bot with it's passive titan works.

Crimson Dog and S Maclo is all I've run thus far... face it at frag drops of 5 each (madness) for a 750 frag toon.. it's gunna take a while... 220 runs at 20 SOT each -- 4400 SOT... then add the SOT needed to farm BNW for key frags....

Not a great event just looking at SOT cost and time required (even at less than 1 minute runs).. so much time needed.... gotta farm BNW.. then farm Virus.. just ridiculous amounts of SOT and time input... and given that it's not an event you can just "set it and forget it" since you need to farm multiple locations within a time/run constraint..... Not a "player centered" event in my opinion. But.. they have done away with event souls.. which may not be all that bad.


And My team is wiping out Virus ed with no problem in the Madness dungeon.


Picked up a cosmic dungeon key soul farming BNW. Haven't dropped it yet.... the last 2 cosmic dungeons I opened gave the meager rewards every single run.. there was no "good first run".. they were all just the 5 talismans soul frags and some gold.

That's good to know. I don't have the macro scout but once the up challenges are done I will probably switch over to Virtual XI with crimson dog and g. hellraiser to complete the last two. And yeah I think it might take more than one event to get this new Eddie. I am not that fussed really when I get him. It does say it won't be available in another soul FOR SOME TIME so he will be back, either in heroic rotation or store, etc eventually.

Ok so I restarted the game, I used 50 frags to purchase a key, it opens the dungeon for 16 hours and I can play as much as I want. Why then do we have such lofty goals in BNW when you only need a few hundred frags to buy repeated keys?
Is it simply for the prizes? The prizes arenít too bad I guess, but between the two (BNW and the dungeon) thatís a hell of a lot of grinding...

I have been playing the hardest level and it only pays 5 frags per round thus far, and the 3* Eddie is a lofty 750 frags that should keep everyone busy for a while!

Amarthir
06-16-2019, 06:17 AM
Fun fact

3 frags on normal at 10 SoT per run

4 frags on hard at 15 SoT per run

5 frags on madness at 20 SoT per run.

It's actually cheaper and more conservative to play normal mode and save ironite. Takes 250 normal runs to get him and there's 20 possible keys to get, and 15 runs per key times 20 is 300 runs so you can do the whole thing on normal for about 630ish ironite.

06-16-2019, 12:26 PM
OK so the big question is whether the other mats on madness level in the virtual dungeon offset the better SoT to virus frags of normal level?

Actually, no, my first and biggest question is: Is virus worth the grind!?!?

The challenges Im doing as I need a heap of runes from BNW anyway.... But the is the dungeon grind even worth doing?

I guess he might be useful for the weekly dungeon?

Dungeon worked for a while (guessing 15 runs, was on auto) but now doesn't work for me.

When I go into it (says I have 13+ hrs left) and select "Enter" to select the specific dungeon, I get a screen with no characters on my side or the opponents side. The "Battle" button is flashing with 3 SoT next it, the title in the top left says "Kingdom of the Sands" and the time next to it says "00:00:00". Also the back button in the top left of the game doesn't work and I have to use the system back button (Android) to get out to a menu in the game.

Restarting doesn't help. It's like the 15 runs didn't expire the dungeon properly and the game is confused. If I have to wait 16 hrs each time I play through the dungeon, I'll never get the fragments.

A quick way to get the echo challenge is to have Doomsday Eddie future basic with Assassin spider. He grants entire team echo if enemy is suffering from crave which assassin spider inflicts with it's passive. This can be done multiple times per battle and the challenge was completed for me within 10 battles.

I've been doing a mix of all 3 dungeons. Once in a while the madness dungeon drops ironite and frontier coins. I've been auto-ing madness with:

Gambler (labyrinth & cosmic)
KP (warlord, sustain & immunity)
Charlotte (viper & cosmic)
Set (eclipse)

Usually takes 2-3 minutes.

Update: Switched Set for Assassin Hierophant (fate & chance) Fastest 1:28

5 frags on madness at 20 SoT per run.

Yeah but madness will also drop skill shards, frontier coins, and evo runes. I haven't run enough of Normal and Hard to know if they do that as well.

Any way... got him.. He's a 3 star, which I didn't read and wasn't expecting. 750 frags for a 3 star seem way steep to me. But anyway. He's decent.. Can hold his own (with my relics) in GOL X. Can wear Primordials of you're so inclined. I threw Mimic and Warp on him. He does decent damage EXCEPT his past basic move which removed Immunity.. it does very, very, very, very weak damage.

So is it 16 hours or 15 plays, or whichever comes first? Why make so effing complicated?

What if all I want is Virus Eddie (not skill shards, ICs... etc), should I chose playing normal for frags?

20 possible keys for 300 runs = 900 frags.

So if i got this right, you use the green frags to buy keys to earn red frags for the 3* Eddie. Once I get the 750 frags and I have the Eddie, all of the remaining green frags can be converted to precious or souls that make gold idols. The green frags have no other use besides the keys and the red frags have no use at all besides the Eddie?

Yeah was thinking the same, though I'd stop at 750 frags. However, that would require 250 runs meaning 2500 sot (not accounting for sot returns). I'm not sure if I want to spend 21 refills for another bench warmer ...

He might be the best option for the weekly dungeon and there is always a possibility of more 3* needed dungeons in the future.... But yeah, many new chars are gauntlet or event specials only.

Still, he also looks pretty cool!

@anyone who's got him, is he really worth chasing? Are his moves cool? Or SoL-esque?

Been strictly running Normal and can confirm Skill Shards and FC's are dropping here. With 5 more runs left, I'm at 667 of 750 frags for Virus. Unless the Froggies shut off the faucet, I should be done today using Ironite for the occasional SOT refill.

Not positive, but I don't think they stack. After finishing each set of 15 runs, I had to go get another key (and put my team together again because they didn't save each time I had to get a new key or refill ironite).

Did the first run in the virus dungeon and got no frags...is that normal for the story mode run?

Edit: none of the 3 levels gave frags for the first clearance, but after that I got 5 frags for madness. Plus 4 x 4* colourless xp shards...hmm not good for 20 SoT! More info: against some waves we go second, be prepared!

Thanks for your confirmation, Liu!
Hm it is a bit strange then, also that you cannot go to madness directly. 300 runs in total times 5 frags = 1500 frags = 2 Eddies.
This WOULD make some sort of sense (if getting a 3* Eddie two times makes sense at all). But ok, so exact 750 frags are the way to go...

Woooowwww... OK so had my arena team do the virtual dungeon on madness 70 times in auto, not even close to losing. All of a sudden I've lost 3 times in a row!

Has the dungeon increased in power all of a sudden!?

Edit: OK, back to my wining ways... That was super weird!

Anyway, for those interested, the below are the rewards for a full refill, less 60 for those losses (wtf) in madness:
85 ironite (over half the fill back, woot!)
1 SS
33x5* colourless shards
24x4* colourless shards
10x3* colourless shards
A few 3* runes (didnt track unfortunately, but it says 'new'!)
handful of rare souls
a little FC (<100, but didnt track very well either)
50ish SoW

A bit of extra time invested certainly, but am thinking its still probs worth running madness for the ironite returns compared to normal. Also should have spare viral frontier coins for conversion to idols, for moar $...

So while technically running normal is better viral eddie frags per unit of ironite, I actually think madness ends up much better overall.

madness really better now?

Muzzleloader

Madnes almost always gives better rewards per SoT. It just depends on how much SoT you are willing to spend.

If on madness you get a 50% SoT return then 250 battles will cost about 600 SoT.

On normal I am getting about a 30% return of Sot then 250 battle will cost about 400 SoT.

This doesnt take into account the rewards or the time invested. I know you recieve better quality and amount of shards. On normal I know I pulled a few SS, I dont know about FC or the amounts. I didnt keep track of the actual amounts. I know I earned more than 120 SoW by what I spent and what I have in the bank. This is after 180 battles.

It is always the team I used recently to level up in powerslave, leaving one spot open. The weird thing is that the team I use for the dungeon is still somehow selected - at least they appear selected (darkish) in the team row, but are not chosen for the team setup. Really strange!


Woooowwww... OK so had my arena team do the virtual dungeon on madness 70 times in auto, not even close to losing. All of a sudden I've lost 3 times in a row!

Has the dungeon increased in power all of a sudden!?

Edit: OK, back to my wining ways... That was super weird!

Anyway, for those interested, the below are the rewards for a full refill, less 60 for those losses (wtf) in madness:
85 ironite (over half the fill back, woot!)
1 SS
33x5* colourless shards
24x4* colourless shards
10x3* colourless shards
A few 3* runes (didnt track unfortunately, but it says 'new'!)
handful of rare souls
a little FC (<100, but didnt track very well either)
50ish SoW

A bit of extra time invested certainly, but am thinking its still probs worth running madness for the ironite returns compared to normal. Also should have spare viral frontier coins for conversion to idols, for moar $...

So while technically running normal is better viral eddie frags per unit of ironite, I actually think madness ends up much better overall.

I have not observed a jump in difficulty, everything runs smooth here and I have not seen a loss. But some waves are annoying, especially if they start and Charlotte does not counter often. This can extend the duration from the usual ~1.75 minutes up to ~3 mins.
Thanks for sharing your results! I was really disappointed yesterday after the first few runs, but indeed there drop some nice amounts of Ironite and SoW on madness once in a while. However, there are also many runs with very poor rewards like the 5 frags plus some colourless shards and that't it. I have also seen some additional frag drops, which was surprising. One run gave 7 another one 6. This might result in 1 or 2 runs less needed for the 750 in the end!

Just out of curiosity, how many talisman key souls has everyone pulled while grinding the BNW dungeons for the viral frontier fragments?

5 keys! So exactly the 5% drop rate here

Edit: maybe it were 4 keys, now I am not so sure how many I had before the event started.

You must run LoL X to get the key souls.... If you did, then ouch, tough luck!

I think I got 4 (maybe had one before the event grind). Ironically, I have run the 4 + initial free run and I have only seen Warrior and Assassin.... kind of irritated I cant just clear them all and get the bonus rewards out of the way.

I have done only 40 battles on level X and have gotten 3 keys. Already finished my farming on BNW.

Yeah, the event is done now and quite happy with the input and output of it all. He should be a strong 3 star I think.

Anyone else have their win counter stuck in Brave New World battles? I'm stuck at 25 and I had run quite a few before I realized it. I have been working on my Echo/titan shield runs and those counters are working.

Event done. Took about 48 hours of playing. Spent about 400 Ironite give or take. Farmed BNW X. Did not even need to finish all the achievements to get him.

I like him and have been beating a few teams in Arena. He is not ready for defense yet but he does well with the right classes.

Farm team of Madness dungeon

Sentinel Troll - Greed/Inspiration (imho the best dungeon ally to use. He destroys all beneficial effects on enemies)
Ferryman - Hex/Mark
Alexander - Viper/Cosmic
Madam - Alchemy/Cosmic

Average time 2:00 minutes (to midnight)
Best time 1:19 on auto.

Despite spending ironite, the returns on the dungeon are huge. Over 100 SoW plus other stuff. I would like to see more events like this.

I got 1 key for all the BNW runs to finish the challenges.... bit disappointed tbh!

That said, knowing my luck I'd get all the same colour anyway and it wouldnt be worth running! lol

Anyone else see the update to Virus Eddie? Didnt see a post to discuss, so I'm mentioning it here. I knew something was up.... his HP earlier was like 39000+, now its 8000+.
The update post said he was drawing stats from the Boss in the Virus Dungeon, that's why Hp was high and his attack was weak. He hits like a champ now, but Hp is 8k or so.
It just messes with your head when you could have sworn you saw something different before..... anyway, you're not crazy , they did change him.

Well seeing how the event was suspended early on due to a bug with the soul that doesn't surprise me to see a change to Virus Eddie.

I completed the event last night. Only down side to the event was the amount of keys to purchase and having to reset every damn time! If they ever go down this road again I hope they make the keys about 100/200 frags and limited to 30/60 runs per key instead of the 50 frags/15 runs bs. Grinding is hard enough as it is why make it even harder? Unless you want even more players to leave the game? :(

dungeon expired after 1 hour wtf?
it is 16 hours after the reset and not after opening key???

Happens to me too. Does anyone know why or have a workaround? Very annoying to have to get new keys all the fricking time.

You must open another one after 15 runs

Oh yes, it was all a bit too complicated with that cascade of exchanging frags and keys, but at least this 16 hours or 15 runs thing was written clearly in the event description. 15 runs was a bit annoying, especially as the team setup was not saved. Moreover there should have been the option to open more keys at once in order to get 30, 45 etc. runs without a break and re-arranging the team.

Apart from that I thinkt his event was ok. Guaranteed reward Eddie, 3 difficulties to get there with known drop rates so that everyone could set his/her own strategy. The random rewards were ok but I see it as a missed chance to give the playerbase some more evo materials for the cosmics. This would have been a good fit, as the number of possible runs was limited anyway.
I did all runs (after the first ones of course) in madness. When I had enough frags for the Eddie, I still had 500 green frags for 2 gold idols. Probably I will just convert the 100 left over, as I think the dungeon rewards aren't THAT good to do more runs - especially as the next grindfest is already going on... number 4 in a row now!

Maybe you should keep the frags, as said, the dungeon will come back sooner or later (and maybe with better rewards?)

Thanks kgk for pointing that out! I completely forgot...

Here from the opening post as a reminder for other players:

"Even if you are unable to secure enough character fragments to earn this character during the event, the Viral Frontier Dungeon will be available again in the future. That means you’ll be able to keep collecting Virus Eddie fragments at a later date, so be sure to hold on to everything you earn!"

Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo ooooo

Edit: Oh well, at least it was only 100 frags

Looks like they put the Viral frontier key in the frontier store for 250 FC.
