Mythic Content Overhaul Preparation
“The Mythic Content Overhaul begins next patch! 12.5 is your last chance to spend your 2020 Prestige Points! Unlike Gemstones, Prestige Points won’t convert to Mythic Essence. USE ‘EM NOW IF YOU’VE GOT ‘EM!
Also, as mentioned last patch, once patch 12.5 releases, you’ll no longer be able to claim OG ownership of 2018 and 2019 Prestige skins by obtaining them from loot drops or rerolls. The skins will still appear in drops and rerolls during 12.5, but only those who earned them pre-12.5 will receive a special version of these skins. Prestige and Gemstone skins will be removed from loot drops and rerolls when the Mythic Content Overhaul begins.”
Team formation for the first weekend of the Freljord Cup starts on March 14, and the tournaments are on March 19 and 20! Team formation for the second weekend starts on March 28, and the tournaments will be on April 2 and 3 during patch 12.6.
