The latest Marvel Heroes Online superhero has been added to the game with the latest patch. The Human Torch has made his way into MHO along with a new zone, new "eternity splinters" that will replace the token system and new items in the in-game shop.
Eternity Splinters are a new system introduced with this patch for Marvel Heroes. Eternity Splinters replace hero token drops and offer players a chance to earn every hero in any order they wish, simply by playing the game. Adam Warlock sells all heroes for Eternity Splinters along with a few other items. He can be found beside Gambit in all three of the social hubs.
Eternity Splinters drop from all enemies throughout the game. Their drop rate is influenced by your Special Item Find bonus. The rate of drop is tuned to make Marvel Heroes slightly faster than other free-to-play games in terms of getting free heroes, as we continue to work towards the goal of being the most player-focused game possible. We will continue to evaluate and iterate until we are 100% satisfied that we are meeting that goal.
We intend to add many things to the Eternity Splinter vendor and anticipate future polls and player discussion about items they would like to see.
