MSF: Anniversary Orbs 2023
There are 5 different orbs that you can obtain during MSF’s 5th anniversary event. Every orb can be obtained in a unique way and offers amazing rewards. The following table lists these orbs:
|Orb name||Rewards||How to acquire|
|Chrysalis Orb||You will receive tier-2 Level 1 Crystals||It is found in the S.T.R.I.K.E Celebration Milestone|
|Originals Orb||It rewards character shards||You can procure the orb by progressing in the S.T.R.I.K.E Celebration Milestone|
|Powerful Orb||Rewards Power Cores||It can be claimed in the S.T.R.I.K.E Salute Milestone|
|Ionic Orb||Players will receive tier-2 level 1, level 4, and level 5 Ions||You can collect the orb from the 2023 Anniversary Login Calendar|
|Midas Orb||You will receive gold||It is available in an Offer|
Every time you open an orb, you will receive Achievement Progress in the quantities indicated below:
|Number of orbs opened||Achievement progress|
|1 orb||3000 Gold Phase Bits|
|2 orbs||3000 Gold Phase Bits|
|3 orbs||3500 Gold Phase Bits|
|4 orbs||5500 Gold Phase Bits|
|5 orbs||50 Kestrel Shards|
Players therefore have to open 5 orbs to receive Kestrel Shards. However, you can open any 5 orbs, they do not have to be any specific orbs.
What to do with Gold Phase Bits
Once you have collected Gold Phase Bits, you can exchange them in a limited-time Achievement menu to collect your choice of costumes. Keep in mind that only certain characters’ costumes are available, namely, those of Nick Fury, Black Bolt, and Kestrel.
You can exchange your Gold Phase Bits for Costume Credits. When you have enough Costume Credits, you can unlock the costume for the hero of your choosing. Allegedly, the ratio of Gold Phase Credits to Costume Credits is 1:3.
Should you acquire Anniversary Orbs?
Some orbs are easier to acquire than others. The Ionic Orb can be procured by simply logging into MSF, while the Midas Orb can only be obtained through an Offer, which generally requires real money.
It is noteworthy that it is not mandatory to use real money in the game.
You can progress through the different milestones to obtain the other orbs, but this means that you have to complete certain activities.
