Legendary Events are special events that allow players to gain characters that are more powerful than the average unit released through Marquees. These events require 5 characters from a specific faction, such as Empire, in order to progress through several waves leading up to a battle involving the character that will be unlocked in the last wave. There are 7 Tiers to these events with each tier requiring units to have 1 star more than the previous tier in order to it. All event units unlock for players to use from Tier 5 at 5 stars with Tier 6 and Tier 7 rewarding the shards needed to promote them to 6 and 7 stars. When a Legendary event first comes out it will be on a specific schedule for the first year before being permanently playable in the Journey Guide.
