    May Events

    https://twitter.com/ironmaidenlotb/s...851986439?s=20

    Alright, still going with Forge of Destiny so we can expect some more Nordic toons.

    I already speculated about the first two events on the April Events post, so I will not be bringing them up again here.

    Gauntlet Season 7: A new Magus character joins the gauntlet roster. No clue as to who it could be, as the background for the May events seems to be related to the new Eddie that is being released.
    Mystic Night: Finally the Magus only Frontier Dungeon. This will likely give us shards for Mystic Flame Eddie, and perhaps some rewards for Occult characters like the Alchemist.
    Unstoppable Force: An evolution event focused on Force talismans. Fun!
    Outback Onslaught: A new Eddie based off the tour art for an Australian show. Probably related to a Mad Max sort of theme.
    Shadow of Death: I am unsure as to what this could be, as the only time I remember lyrics like this coming from a Maiden song is from Shadow of the Valley, so perhaps more Book of Souls toons? Perhaps Awakenable Grim Reaper Eddie? Who knows!
    Wings of Steel: Awakenable Icarus.
    Sentinel Sojobo Tengu King: Completely out of left field, this is a character based on Japanese folklore. I have no idea why we are suddenly getting this now, but I suppose it's cool?
    Immortal Era: Another dungeon event, eh? Well, I assume this has to do with the Norse themes of this mega event with immortals and such. Sounds cool.

    What are you guys' predictions?

    The Magus character in Gauntlet is probably gonna be based on a song title, all the previous gauntlet characters were named after songs (aside from Necropolis who was a character in a song)

    I think the character choices may have been planned to coincide with the now delayed Maiden tour, as they were supposed to do Australia and Japan around now.

    Outback Onslaught- I’m going with Eddie riding a kangaroo. They just released Norse characters riding cats, so why not a kangaroo??

    GR Ed was already pretty much confirmed to be next; when Viking was made awakenable a glitch occurred allowing people to awaken him and Icarus. It is likely it will be him in the Shadow of Death dungeon unless that is related to a different piece of maiden lore.

    Maybe Wildest Dreams Eddie / Infinite Dreams Eddie with that Mad Max-ish dungeon? And yes, I also believe that Grim Reaper is coming with that Mystic event.
    As for the Magus Gauntlet character, I assume it would be The Pilgrim. Or even The Assassin (?)

    I think most predictions are correct or close to the mark.
    No idea who could be the next character via gauntlet, there are a few songs that spring to mind but none that seem to fit for a magus class character imo. ie Prowler, Prodigal Son...
    Mystic night should indeed be the magus dungeon where we can earn Mystic Flame Eddie.
    Outback Onslaught does seem to be tied to the tour here in Australia but thats since been postponed. Seeing how so many events have been postponed recently I get a sense of irony that they are going ahead with it...
    Shadow of Death also makes me think of Awakenable Grim Reaper.
    Wings of steel, could be awakenable Icarus but 2 events back to back that revolve around awakening characters, not sure thats a good thing if indeed that turns out to be the case.
    Sentinel Fragment Tengu King was likely tied to the Japan leg of the tour.
    Immortal Era, no idea yet.

    The graphic for the monthly event does usually point to a new Eddie, maybe Wildest Dreams Eddie even though there is no real connection to the outback but the video was Mad Max inspired which I guess is close enough? And we know with the devs thats all the connection they need for new characters, heck probably more of a connection than all the Norse based stuff we are getting now. I googled tour art for Australian tours and well the Ed in those is basically of a Crocodile Dundee/Mick Taylor bogan type....as you can see by the image below. Id die if they put something like that in the game lol

    Lack of clan events is kinda concerning in the sense that Im still a long way off from getting an Odin. I am now starting to think getting more than 1 Odin from event frags is probably impossible.

    And finally, with all the struggles of April and another 3 dungeons planned (the devs never learn), the only thing I know for sure for May, is that another 1-2 compensation packs will be on the way when the game turns to shit all over again....so we all have that to look forward to.

    Would have been seeing them tonight in a different world.

    I'm all in favour of having to pretend the tour continued through some new LotB character designs :P
