    Official Event Guide & Walkthrough

    Dark Dwarf Heist

    dark_dwarf_heist_02_dro_facebook.png


    Quick Overview:

    Required levels1-50 (see notice below)*
    Duration23rd September – 4th October
    *Please note: The event is playable from level 1 on but of course you need to go through the tutorial in order to play it. You can play the event on your own (single), but it might be easier to play in a group.


    What is new in this event!!
    • The random monster enchantments (from Lor’Tac champions) have already been applied to this event.
    • We have a new costume in the progress event bar: the diving suit costume!
    • We have reduced the number of challenges from 3 to 2.
    • We have introduced six new achievements!
    • There is a new character in Dracania looking for help. His name is Drake, the Soldier of Misfortune, and he is waiting for you in Kingshill, near Thabo.


    Introduction – Plot

    This event is all about Viscanium, a magical mineral used by the Spellweavers to create magical books, in which the story of Dracania is written down. Viscanium is gathered from a mysterious mine, a hidden place, somewhere in Dracania.
    The mine was recently attacked and eventually taken over by dark dwarves. The dwarves have built a submarine dock underneath the mine in order to transport the stolen Viscanium to Stalgard, where they plan to create dangerous military equipment with it.
    The Spellweavers ask the heroes of Dracania to stop the dwarves and their minions, as Viscanium can be a dangerous weapon in the hands of the dark dwarves.


    How to start the event

    In order to start the event you need to speak with NPC Mud and NPC Shady John in Kingshill. Hear what they have to say, accept their quests and make your way to the Viscanium Mine. The entrance is located right next to Mud and Shady John.

    [​IMG]*NEW* Drake the Soldier of Misfortune*NEW*Kingshill – next to ThaboHe is a dead fortune hunter who is not able to find his eternal rest, because of his unfinished list of hidden treasures he wanted to discover. He asks the player in all upcoming events for help.
    Inside the Viscanium Mine

    [​IMG]
    In the Viscanium Mine you have plenty of opportunities to gather Pure Viscanium, which you need in order to progress in the overall event. The mine is occupied by a dangerous array of monsters that need to be put into place. Three bigger champion monsters can also be found in the mine.



    Adding Pure Viscanium to the event progress bar: Viscanium Rocks and Geodes

    In the entire mine you can find several clickable objects; most notably the Viscanium Rocks and Geodes, that hold the desirable Pure Viscanium. The stack size that can be mined can vary from 1 to 10 pieces.

    • Viscanium Rocks: Through a simple click these rocks will drop either Pure or Impure Viscanium. No Crystal Miner’s Pickaxes pickaxe needed!
    [​IMG]

    • Viscanium Geodes: They will always drop Pure Viscanium but your character has to use Crystal Miner’s Pickaxes in order to mine Pure Viscanium. Be careful though; there is a chance that a wild Viscanium Minion will appear to protect the geode!!
    [​IMG]



    Event state-objects: the Amphorae
    [​IMG]
    The Amphorae are special event chests. To open them you need Amphorae Keys. The Amphorae always drop their loot for the player who opened them, but every group member in the location should be able to open the same Amphora. There are two different kinds of Amphorae:

    • Festive Amphorae: you will need 1 key to open one.
    • More Festive Amphorae: you will need 5 keys to open one. They enjoy a better drop.

    Special Map: Nightmare “Blazing Inferno”

    Required Character Level: 1-50
    Maximum number of players in group: 5

    The final reward from the event progress bar allows you to enter the map Blazing Inferno twice. Once you enter the map you will see a cloudy red sphere called Trapped Nightmares that you can attack. Beware though, prepare for a Pandora’s Box effect; once you destroy the sphere evil forces will be unleashed. Your heroes will be attacked by no other but Sargon the Terrible, the Glowing Demon and the Fiery Shadowbringer.

    With a little bit of luck Sargon and his evil tag team will drop their very own valuables.
    In total Sargon the Terrible has to be defeated 3 times before he is finally dead. He will undergo two transformations in total.

    Frequently Asked Questions:

    Why do I need Draken?
    This is our event currency. You can only win Draken during the event. They are useful in the game, since the event merchant named Gnob sometimes drops by Kingshill and sells special items which can only be bought with Draken.

    Can I continue with the “Kill Sargon 999 times” (Entering the Shadow Kingdom) Quest?
    Yes, you can progress in the quest by defeating Sargon the Terrible in Nightmare ‘Blazing Inferno’.
