Let’s break down how July’s Side Quest, Northern Expeditions, works so you can maximize your rewards.
If you remember Mole Man Expeditions, then you already know the setup for how Northern Expeditions will work. There will be 4 quests, with a new one unlocking each week in July. There are 4 difficulty levels: Heroic, Master, Epic, and Canadian. Canadian Difficulty is a new “Cavalier” tuned map, and you must be Level 60 to access it, but you do not need to have the Cavalier title.
Your quest team will be limited to 3 champions, and Sasquatch will be a random ambush, so be prepared to deal with him by adding a mystic counter to your team.
Canadian Difficulty will have an added Global node, and all paths but one will have linked nodes.
There will be no energy requirements for Northern Expeditions, and you can run all difficulty levels you have access to. All the rewards are on the paths, there are no completion or exploration rewards.
Week 1 (8 Paths) – Wednesday, July 1 at 1pm EST
