Another Treasure Hunt is here! (It sure feels like it's been awhile, with the recent run of midweek monster drops). This Treasure Hunt is, like the others that released this year, on the easier side to give as many players as possible a reason to try out some of the older hunts.

But never fear, our midweek update design team have been on a hunt of their own to find rewards that will hit that sweet spot for new and old heroes alike.

Rewards will be permanently available.
