Updated: Cataclysm Week 2 changes

Here are the changes and new items for week 2 of the Cataclysm. 

Update: New Diana's Landing event guide at the bottom! 

Cataclysm “Echoes of Reality” Changes:

“Diana’s Landing” Event  - You’ll now have a 4th arena to test your wits and boost your point output before taking on Vara. Diana’s Landing, which is located in the “Dominion Foothold” district, will have you facing the Riftmaster in this brand new puzzle. (No spoilers from me)

Inversions Changes - Hope you didn’t get too used to Week 1’s buffs, as this week’s inversions are a bit different:

Lightning Rod: Close-range kills chain lightning to nearby enemies.
Close Encounters: Shotguns and Machine Pistols deal increased damage.

Seasonal Store Refresh:

War Chest: Melee Weapon - (returning)
War Chest: Gear - In addition to melee weapon War Chests, you’ll also be able to spend your earned Crystal currency on new War Chests containing a (random) javelin Gear piece. As a reminder, these War Chests allow you to trade in Crystals for a Masterwork item (with a chance to roll Legendary).

Daily Cataclysm Challenge:

Daily Cataclysm Arenas Challenge: Gear - These challenges granted a Melee weapon in Week 1, and now they reward you with a Gear piece (Masterwork with a chance to be Legendary). These can be repeated daily, so don’t forget them!

Power of the Storm (Daily) - Complete 3 Cataclysm arenas using the Storm javelin and be rewarded with one Storm Gear piece.
