Booster Gold is filling up Time Capsules with lots of useful and exciting items to send through the Multiverse to you! But how do you find them? How can you open them? What’s waiting for you when you do? Let’s take a few minutes to prepare for their arrival and find out…
Time Capsules can be obtained through regular gameplay. You don’t need to do anything special in order to get these. As you’re playing the game as you normally would, you will eventually find a capsule waiting for you when you defeat an enemy.
To open a capsule, you’ll need a Stabilizer. There are two ways to obtain a stabilizer: purchasing one from the Marketplace for 100 Daybreak Cash (PC) or Marketplace Cash (Console), or putting one together through gameplay.
When you purchase a whole Stabilizer from the Marketplace, you can use it right away to open your capsule.
In game, you’ll need to find Stabilizer Fragments. You can use these fragments to piece together a full stabilizer, which can open a capsule. Stabilizer Fragments can be earned in-game via special events, found in the On Duty menu under the “Events” tab.
Looking to grab some Stabilizer Fragments in game? Look for the “Stabilizer Fragmentation” event in your On Duty menu.
Free players will receive 3 Stabilizer Fragments per event, Premium players will receive 4 Stabilizer Fragments per event, and Members will receive 6 Stabilizer Fragments per event. It will take 15 Stabilizer Fragments to build a complete Stabilizer. Stabilizer Fragments and Stabilizers are special types of currency that are shared by all characters on your account.
Once you use a stabilizer to open a capsule, you’ll see what sort of goodies Booster Gold has sent to you!
Each capsule is tradable and once opened will include a variety of useful and mostly tradable items. Some of these items will be included inside a separate capsule or box inside the Time Capsule. These contain styles, auras, materials, collections, and gear. Each capsule also contains Quarks for the Rewards From Time And Space vendor.
Time Capsules are only available for a limited time. As the capsules change, so too do the items available inside. If you have previous Time Capsules saved in your inventory, you will still be able to open or trade them after they’ve stopped dropping in game.
The Assassin Time Capsule features shadowy styles and rewards from across the DC Universe. Each Assassin Time Capsule contains one sub-capsule (more on that below) and random items from a general list of rewards, including Quarks (Rewards from Time & Space vendor currency), Soder Cola Ultimates, R&D Exobytes, complex materials, collections, and the ultra-rare Luminous Gaze style item.
Keep reading for more information on all the new sub-capsule rewards!
Inspired by the legendary assassin, Black Manta, the Abyssal gear set is everything you need to conduct your lethal business above or beneath the sea.
Each gear piece has a chance to drop in each Assasin Gear sub-capsule and, when consumed, will become level-appropriate to your character. If you want to trade them, make sure you do so BEFORE you attune them! Once you have obtained a full set of Abyssal gear, the Enhanced version will be available for Quarks on the Rewards from Time & Space vendor directly. That's right - no more recipes or motes needed for this set of Enhanced styles.
In the Assassin Collector's Capsule, assassins from across the DC Universe have, shall we say, contributed. The Court of Owls was convinced to donate one of their iconic masks, Ra's Al Ghul himself sent in a replica of his infamous Jackal helmet, and an unknown assassin offered up a very special cloak - the Cloak of Shadows, aptly named.
All new in this Time Capsule is a new kind of sub-capsule, the Artificer's capsule. Each Artificer's capsule you open will grant several powerful Sin Stones, which can be fortified into Artifacts (just like Nth Metal) to rank the Artifacts up.
But here's the important part: the FIRST time you open an Artificer's capsule, you will gain the attention of a the Demon's Head himself, Ra's Al Ghul. You will want to check your mail right away for an urgent communication from Ra's. Attached, you will receive a special style item, Eyes of the Dusk. It looks incredible, causing lethal energy to flow from your eyes.
That's not all, of course. When you equip this style item, you will gain a chance to see and thus find special collection items when defeating enemies anywhere in the game. These items can usually only be seen by the most elite assassins, and thanks to your acquiring the Eyes of the Dusk, that now means you, too. These new items can be used to complete three new collections, and the rewards for doing so are new artifacts.
These new artifacts rank up just like existing artifacts, increasing your stats as they become stronger, and they have new passive abilities:
Plus, as a special bonus, you will receive extra Artifact XP when using Sin Stones to fortify these specific artifacts from the Eyes of the Dusk collections. Remember, all it takes is opening ONE Artificer's capsule to unlock the ability to find these deadly new artifacts.
VENDOR CURRENCY: QUARKS
Quarks are a currency found in Time Capsules and spent in the new Rewards From Time And Space vendor (more on those rewards below). You'll receive Quarks in Time Capsules in two ways:
REWARDS FROM TIME AND SPACE
The Rewards From Time And Space vendor is new with Game Update 75, and features a wide variety of new rewards available for Quarks. Those rewards range from several consumable and early game supplies, to gear that will automatically level to you, to incredible new Auras and Materials. As a SPECIAL BONUS, Members receive 10% off all items on the Rewards From Time And Space vendor.
Make sure to check out the top reward, the Resplendent Cache! Keep reading for details!
Three all-new materials are available for Quarks, the Stealth material, the Blue Smoke material, and the Opalescent material. The Stealth material is perfect for those of you who trend toward ninja or wish to lurk unseen in the night. It is a new kind of material that replaces the texture of your style while retaining the geometry and details of that style, while also adding a rich and highly detailed cloth vibe that shimmers in the light. The Blue Smoke material closely matches the Blue Smoke aura, and we recommend using both together for maximum effect! Finally, the Opalescent material shimmers like a pearl in the sun.
Two sets of "modular" auras are also available on the Rewards From Time And Space vendor. What do we mean by Modular? We have variant versions of the new Energy Cell and Diamond Mist auras that apply the aura to certain areas of your character's body. There are seven - count 'em, SEVEN - modular Energy Cell and Diamond Mist aura variants (Head, Hands, Feet, Right Hand, Hands and Feet, Hands and Head, and finally Head, Hands, and Feet.
For example, the image above is applied to Head, Hands, and Feat, but these and more are also all available individually.
Tactical Mod Box
The Tactical Mod box is a box of, you guessed it, tactical mods previously found in Time Capsules. There is a box specifically for each powerset. When you open your capsule, you will be able to choose between two random tactical mods from that powerset.
Bonus: Water now has tactical mods and they are available through this box.
Bombardier Gear Box
Looking to gear up? You got it. The Bombardier Gear Box features gear that will automatically level to you (capped below the latest episode's gear). When you open the box, you will get to choose which gear slot you prefer. Especially of note, this gear will use the much sought-after Avatar Bombardier style. Go nuts!
Training Supply Kit
The Training Supply Kit is great for newer characters in the process of leveling. It includes 3 XP-Plus Booster Boxes, 12 Soder Cola Ultimates, and a random gear piece from the Bombardier Gear Box.
Crafting Supply Kit
The Crafting Supply Kit is great for anyone looking to get into R&D. It includes 20 Complex Materials and 60 Simple Materials.
Compound Omega Stash
The Compound Omega Stash is pretty straight forward. It includes 5 Compound Omegas that increase your Health, Power, Restoration, Vitalization and Dominance, Precision, and Might for 30 minutes.
The Resplendent Cache
To cap things off, the Resplendent Cache is the most prized offering on the Rewards From Time And Space vendor. The Opalescent material and the Diamond Mist aura are available separetly, but if you buy them together in the Resplendent Cache, you ALSO get a 0-point feat and title, "the Champion of Life."
Wear your elite material, aura, and title with pride!
