The bulk of the Crimson Days action, though, will be handled by Shaxx. He'll offer you Confectionery Hearts for competing in Crimson Doubles PvP matches and also has duo-centric PvE Bounties available for those who don't feel comfortable battling against human opponents. Complete enough of these Bounties, and you'll earn Confectionery Hearts, Bright Dust and even Double XP.

While the Crimson Days formula appears mostly the same, it looks like the systems have changed slightly with the introduction of these new Bounties from Shaxx. There are essentially two ways to get Confectionery Hearts during Crimson Days 2020.

  • Crimson Doubles: Seven hearts per win, five per loss
  • Shaxx Daily Bounty: About 15 Confectionery Hearts each
