Ubisoft and Massive Entertainment have officially confirmed that The Division's next Shield, Fang, will start sooner than expected. The original date was 13 November, while the new one is 08 November 2018. Let the legendaries commence.
Unfortunately, Global Event Blackout will run out before Fang commences so players will have to rely on other means to complete the Shield. This particular one will require them to complete every Legendary mission, but thankfully flawless runs will not be necessary for completion.
Newcomers might have a bit more trouble with completing Legendary missions at first, so it's highly suggested to go for other Shields and farm Global Events before attempting this one, in order to gear up enough to be able to play in World Tier 5 and possibly complete a Classified set or two. To those who feel ready to undertake Fang's challenge, the full Legendary playlist is contains the following missions:
- Times Square Power Relay
- Napalm Production Site
- WarrenGate Power Plant
- Amherst's Apartment
- Grand Central Station
- Madison Field Hospital
- General Assembly
Even if someone is indeed undergeared or lacks certain knowledge in the game in order to complete the Legendary missions, there not much reason to panic, since The Division 2 is coming out on 15 March 2018 and that's the deadline for completing the Shields. Therefore, players have almost half a year from the time of writing to learn and complete these missions.
On top of everything, Global Event Blackout and offers some of the best PvE gear so farming it out before it expires may be a good idea in order to get the gear quickly and get yourself ready for Legendary missions.
If you happen to already have a good gear score, you may also want to hurry up with completing the Legendary playlist while the event lasts, as it offers one of the best modifiers and makes hard situations much easier.
