Even though the Angelic Awilix skin hasn’t even hit our screens yet, Hi-Rez are already holding another community skin vote for the next T5 skin which will be the ultimate Odyssey 2018 reward. This will be a Limited skin and will only be available during the time of the Odyssey, which will arrive sometime later this year.
*Edit: Voting on the Top 3 has opened. Check out my Odyssey 2018 T5 Skin Vote: Top 3 post to see the skin concepts!
*Edit (28/6/17): The T5 skin will be announced in 2 weeks at Dreamhack. The skin concepts (probably one for each hunter) will be open to vote on from 8th – 11th July and the winner will be announced at Dreamhack – probably on the Patch Notes show on 12th July. I will post again as soon as I hear about the opening of the skin vote.
*Edit: Voting on the class has now closed and Hi-Rez has announced that the next T5 skin will be for a HUNTER! Voting for the 3 hunters has now also closed and the top 5 hunters have been chosen.
*Edit: The Top 5 hunters have been chosen! You can now submit your concept ideas for Hou Yi, Jing Wei, Medusa, Skadi and Ullr! There are some Rules and Regulations to be aware of and all submissions need to be submitted here as a new thread. Here is an Information page about submitting if there’s anything you’re unsure about. I’m so happy Jing Wei has been selected, she is my favourite hunter and I can imagine some great things could be done with Hou Yi and Medusa too so I’m looking forward to having a look through the submission threads!
Last year Demonic Pact Anubis won the vote and made it into the game as the final reward for the Odyssey 2017 for reaching 73500 Odyssey points. In order to get the points for the reward you had to purchase in game content with gems, and the new addition last year where you could earn some Odyssey points by completing some in game quests.
This is what last year’s winning Anubis skin looks like, which unfortunately is no longer available, but for those of you that don’t know it has 4 forms. At levels 5, 10 and 15 the skin will change form, changing into the picture above for the final form. It’s very over the top with lots of visual effects, and to me it’s quite distracting when you change to the final form as the model gets bigger and just obstructs more of your view.
But anyway, the winning skin will be something similar to this. The only T5 skins are Archon Thanatos (2015), Ragnarok Force X Thor (2016) and Demonic Pact Anubis (2017). You, the community, will decide on the next one!
So here are all the dates you will need for when all the voting will take place:
- CLASS: 26th – 29th May. Vote for either Guardian, Warrior, Hunter, Assassin or Mage. Winner – HUNTER
- GOD: 29th May – 1st June. Vote on the God you want to see the skin for from the winning class. Vote for 3 hunters each, top 5 will go to next round.
- SUBMISSIONS: 2nd – 19th June. Design a concept for the chosen God/s and submit them to the Hi-Rez team (I believe last year there were 3 Gods chosen – Anubis, Sol and Kukulkan).
- CONCEPT VOTE: 8th – 11th July. Vote on your favourite skin/concept design from the submissions (I believe last year 1 submission for each of the 3 Gods were chosen to vote on).
- WINNER: Announced 12th July!
