The Empowered Illusionist's Mask

OK, this item is pretty neat - possibly BiS for some builds as a secondary artifact, in fact.

Now, I had assumed this would be obtainable through the Masquerade of Liars, but the two posts about the event https://arcgames.com/en/games/neverwinter/news/detail/11008433 and https://arcgames.com/en/games/neverwinter/news/detail/11010693 do not mention it - just the regular mask.

So, how do we get the Empowered version? Is this maybe the first step towards allowing us to Empower all artifacts ? Or, even, are they maybe planning to allow us to empower all artifacts, and we only got to hear about the Empowered Illusionist's Mask because they had to update its page anyhow when they added Mythic rank to it (Previously it only went up to legendary).

    Looks like the perfect secondary artifact for both AC and DO. Not many AP gain artifacts out there and this one would easily beats all of them. I hope it will not be another apocraplyse dagger and be annoying to acquire. I would love to replace my thyan book with this.

    Hmm...it seems they updated the post...so, get the Illusionist mask to Mythic, then exchange it for a green-quality Empowered one. Fair enough.

    Hello. In regards to the original Mask, does it have to be Legendary to trade in or just Epic? If Legendary is needed, will the special refinement items be available to do the upgrade as in Veil of Shadows, Veil of Mists...Etc? Thanks

    I expect it will have to be fully refined - that is, Mythic.

    The regular Mask can only go to Legendary (level 100). I just need one item to do the upgrade. Should have that later today. Then it's just gathering the 1000 tokens.

    There is a bug where a mask gets upgraded but stays at level 99, 'ready to upgrade.' Color changes to Legendary however. Looking at the vendor, the bug doesn't seem to stop you from redeeming the new artifact but I won't have enough tokens until today.

    If known can someone pls list the reqs for getting the original masks from purple to legendary and the new mask from green to mythic pls? I have the originals at blue but and was going to do purple today but dont want to if the trade in options bug out or disappear (as reported elsewhere) until I farmed up all the matts.

    The empowered masks follow the same upgrade process as the original (matt wise) or standard arti upgrade procedure? We need this events specific matts or can still be done outside of the event? Ty for any info.

    My CW will really like those stats. As a pure CC build she relies on keeping enemies perma-controlled.

    @chivonica I upgraded mine from blue to orange, they need the event mats to do this, but when I upgraded from blue to purple and purple to orange there was no upgrading by level, it went directly to each "color" upgrade (I am assuming they want to get rid of these old masks so are making easy to upgrade instead of making us do each level)....I hope this made sense and helps :)

    To anyone wanting to get this artifact I advice reading this forum thread that discusses a problem/bug that can slow down the process a few days.

    @tazz4now Thanks. I am bit confused by what you mean upgrading by level. You upgraded from blue to orange using the event matts, this I expected but I read the matts trade in/exchange disappears after upgrading to purple (idk if thats for the old, new or both masks or if it even happens) and don't know if once traded in for the new green mask it takes the event matts to upgrade as well or just normal refining ect.

    If the new mask needs the event matts to upgrade too I would like to farm up any matts before upgrading old mask to purple/orange and trading in for new green mask to avoid the possibility of exchange disappearing so I can just upgrade the masks quickly without having to farm the event for a lot more days then necessary.

    If the new mask is upgraded as normal RP etc I will probably just take the risk of the exchange disappearance and upgrade as I wont need a lot of the event matts for this but if not I want to farm all event matts needed for the new one too using the exchange before upgrading. I hope this is a bit clearer and you or anyone else can shed some light on this.

    Yeh this what I mean. I think I just need to know if the new mask needs the event matts and how many if so.

    You can get one of each Memento each day anyway.

    Yes but I wanted to try and minimise my playtime during the build up to the festive periods baring new releases ect. So I just wanted to know if the new empowered mask needed the event items or not so I can blast through fully upgrading some for 4 of my characters without having to do dailies every day or so. I will just buy a few extra of each and try it on an alt and see what happens. Thanks anyways :) .
  • tazz4nowtazz4now Posts: 189Member, NW M9 Playtest Arc User
    @chivonica what I meant was when I upgraded from blue to purple and purple to orange there was no need to use anything to go from lvl 60, 61, 62, etc to 100, it just automatically allowed me to upgrade each color right away

    I haven't traded mine in yet so I don't know what is needed to upgrade in mats on the new one, I think I will use one of my alts to farm the mats just in case though and collect the daily stuff, as soon as I can I will trade the old one in and see what it takes, if no one else answers I will update when I am able to

    You can exchange veils for momentos so you can get all the momentos you need in one day if you want.

    Can you ? you can exchange once when your mask is blue, but after that you can't anymore... unless when you get the empowered mask, it is unlocked again, is it ?
  • chivonicachivonica Posts: 97Member Arc User
    No you cant and the memento exchange stays gone even when empowered mask is acquired and upgraded. The event matts are not needed for the new masks so if you want several on the same account to pass around or are just starting the event and want new mask(s) asap then the memento exchange sticking around would be really helpful.

    Is a long event and not a lot matts needed for old masks apart from 1k tokens but can average approx. 150 bags p/hr, min 2 tokens, max 3 in them so not bad if done in one go or spread out imo and no need for lots of dailies unless you want to. It did give me flash backs of SKT voninblood though and the fake/bugged pumpkins didn't help either :#
