This is special about the Heist Flashback Event

This is how the Flashback event differs from the League and other events: This event is not "Voided". This means that all your loot and characters end up in the corresponding permanent league after the event and you can keep them. In addition to the well-known Heist League mechanics, each zone/map will contain three random mods from past leagues. However, every hour these mods will change randomly. These are the mods:

  • 2 Additional Rogue Exiles
  • 2 Additional Invasion Bosses
  • 1 Additional Breach
  • 2 Additional Strongboxes
  • 3 Additional Tormented Spirits
  • 2 Additional Perandus Chests and a 33% chance to spawn Cadiro
  • 3 Additional Rare Monster Packs with Nemesis Mods
  • 3 Additional Magic Monster Packs with Bloodlines
  • 1 Additional Abyss
  • 2 Additional Harbingers
  • 1 Timeless Monolith
  • 1 Metamorph
  • 1 Delirium Mirror
  • Beyond

The Heist Flashback Event Prizes

The prizes are structured in a similar way to the Endless Delve event, only this time there is a different selection. In addition, you can trade with other players. There are again different MTX and for the best of the best to win the authority of the demigod.


Twilight Mystery Box: In the Flashback Event, you'll be automatically awarded a Twilight Mystery Box for reaching level 50. This is a guaranteed prize that's only available once per account per event. Leveling multiple characters in the same event will not grant multiple mystery boxes.

Random Draw Microtransactions: If you reach one of the level thresholds below, you'll automatically be in the draw to win one of the microtransaction prizes below. These will be drawn at random and shared across all versions of the event.
