    Sounds like this should fix the Ape fireball bug \o/

    An aura box? With just 5 auras? You really don't want your players getting anything nice do you? An aura box is going to be worse than getting an action figure as a drop, because although it's a class A troll move to see a glowing price and then get slapped in the face with a worthless action figure, some people are going to be paying REAL money to get a useless aura box. Terrible.

    BUG: THIS UPDATE BROKE A MAJORITY OF (LOYAL) SIDEKICKS
    Now their MAX HP is only 453 hp and get on shotted by everything

    HcI27O9.png

    Yet other sidekicks, like Chaos Imp, are not affected by this bug

    and speaking off

    BUG: Revenant of Firefight, Psionic Echos and other similar pets gets instantly detoggeld and despawned when as soon as you get CCed

    Is this a BUG or a Feature?

    The loyal sidekicks are level 1 when summoned.

    My Knaal Sidekick isn't inflicting Stun at all like its tooltip says it does, and its Vengeance doesn't have an impact animation.

    [1:04] [Combat (Self)] Your Agate deals 1 (1) Cold Damage to Annihilator Bot with Frigid Maul.

  • I appreciate the abnormal costume pieces. Happy to see the sidekick is not a full on tragedy like Blaise.

    I saw “Cosmic Lockbox” and got excited for a hot minute, but it’s the same weird *** stuff. Phantom Lockbox 2.0... and that's being kind. :(

    We will have a fix for the lv1 sidekicks next week, as well as the fx issue with Knaal's Vengeance. Knaal's stun is on her Rebuke power, is that not triggering?​​

    Sorry, for some reason it wasn't stunning before but now it is.

    Everything about this feels Rushed (as always), made only to caught up with the Eidolon return Hype (which Revamp is pretty GOOD I may add), to push a new lockbox during Thanksgiving and black friday!
    The Lockbox was not even tested or known until literally the lay day before it went Live! This needs to stop! You are just bound yourself into Bugged features to Live with less than 12 hours testing on PTS :expressionless:
    There wasn't even a PTS forum thread that It got on PTS! A player had to mention it exists now

    1. The ingame info for the EVENT was fixed, this is indeed a 2 weeks event
    2. Apparently there was going to be an ULTIMATE for this lockbox, a Cosmic Ray Beam of some short, but was postponed for the NEXT LOCKBOX... so this lockbox is only costumes, 1 sidekick and auras! No Travel Power, No Emotes, No Transforms, No Ultimates (again)
    WHAT DOES A MAN HAS TO DO TO PLAY WITH NEW POWERS IN THIS GAME AFTER 1 YEAR OF DROUGHT!?
    3. Knaal is pretty sassy for a cosmic deity of something, She breaks the 4th Wall! You may or may not enjoy it, your mileage may vary

    4. I just wish we have gotten more INTERESTING visual sidekicks and not just sidekicks who exist just to showcase the lockbox costume set.
    It's also the fact a lot of those lockbox showcase sidekicks are not flexible for themes, and NO I don't want a basic emo-goth kid as sidekick cryptic :expressionless:

    The Robot spider for example has a lot of theme flexibility since it can be combined with a lot of different themes! A gothic kid... not so much

    5. Well compared to the previous Lockbox sets which were DULL and basic! I do like the COSMOS set, each major piece stands out except of some of them!
    I'm a fan of Abstract Cosmic powered creatures deities designs

    Except cosmos vest! THIS IS BORAT'S SWIMSUIT! Why do you hate GOOD Chest pieces!? :unamused:​​

    When in team, sidekick can sometimes be teleport-bound to another teammate.

    Behavior of bug:
    Player 1 summons sidekick Freddy.
    Player 1's Freddy will teleport to Player 2 when Player 1's Freddy is too far from Player 1.
    Player 1's Freddy will continuously attempt to run back to Player 1.
    Causes loop of Freddy teleporting to Player 2.
