The DC Universe is full of assassins, trained in stealth and the lethal arts. They are sometimes willing to work for the highest bidder, sometimes willing to work for others, and sometimes only willing to pursue a mission of their own. What kind of assassin will you be? The choice is yours in the Assassin Time Capsule, dropping in-game and available directly on the Marketplace after restarts on April 19, 2018. This and all Time Capsules can be unlocked with Stabilizers. Stabilizers are earned in-game or purchased in the Marketplace.
If you’re looking to learn more about how to get, open, and use a Time Capsule - or what is in previous Time Capsules - check out our helpful guide!
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.

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.
The Assassin Time Capsule will be available and dropping in-game starting April 19, 2018. Log in and unlock yours!
