Shugo Sweep Returns

05092017_shugosweep_detail.jpg

Shugo Sweep has returned to Atria. Come one, come all, the same rules apply. Roll the die to go around the board and win wonderful prizes. The Golden Card is also up for grabs for the luckiest Daevas!


-How To Participate-

After the maintenance tomorrow, October 18, you will find the Shugo Sweep icon in the bottom right portion of your screen. Clicking this icon will open up the Shugo Sweep game board where you will be able to roll the die and get rewarded with an item for the spot you land on. The item is immediately placed into your inventory and once you claim an item, you can’t land on that spot again. You can go around the board as many times as possible until you run out of available spots, at which point the board will be refreshed with new items.

Accounts with level 46+ characters will receive one free roll per event week after the maintenance. The board and dice pool are shared across all the characters on the account. If you are looking for additional rolls, you can purchase Golden Dice on the store. Additionally, a survey containing one Golden Die will be sent out to all players once per week after the maintenance, and if you are a Prestige Pack holder you will receive an additional Golden Die. If you want to reset the board before collecting all the items, you can purchase a Shuffle Card from the store to refresh the board immediately.

While progressing through the board you may come across a Ten, Jack, Queen, King and Ace Card. If you combine all five of these cards together you will be granted a Golden Card which you can open for fabulous prizes.

Harvest Revel Pumpkin Carving Contest 2017

10142016_Pumpkin_detailpage.jpg

Pumpkins are back in season! But set down your pumpkin-flavored coffee, cookies, and cakes, and push aside your pumpkin-scented soaps, air fresheners, and mouth washes—it’s time to get back to basics and carve them up for fabulous prizes!

How You Slice It
The NCSOFT Pumpkin Carving Contest is available across all titles: AION, Lineage II, WildStar, Blade & Soul, and MXM. You’re tasked with carving a pumpkin and submitting them in the artistic style and look of the game you’re entering for. Each individual game has their own individual news article like this one, their own submission process, and their own rewards! In addition to the game-specific rewards we’re also awarding best-overall carvings across all games.

The Scoop
Use your artistic skills—by masterfully massacring some gourd flesh, or get artistic and make it look like you had—and create a design based on the game you’re entering for. Your entry must be your original work, and must be based on the game title you’re entering for. Any designs that violate a copyright or someone else’s intellectual property (other than NCSOFT’s) will be disqualified.

Here are some examples from years past!

Three Grand Prize winners will be chosen from each category (real pumpkin and virtual), across all entries for all titles and will each receive:

  • •    8,000 NCoin and the selected game prizing from above


Judging

The NCSOFT team will select the finalists and Grand Prize winners, and they’ll be announced on October 31, 2017 and winners will be contacted directly shortly thereafter. Judging will be based on creativity, originality, and overall representation of the contest theme.

Read the Official Contest Rules before entering.

Submissions

For the real-life pumpkin carving please take a photo of your carving alongside a hand-written or printed note of your in-game name, server, and the year, so we can verify authenticity.

Haunted Energy

Wandering Omens have made their way to Atreia, and a Purifying Tree has appeared. Use the containment charms to seal away these monsters and cleanse them with the Purifying Tree for spooky-good rewards.


-How To Participate-

The Omens and Harrowing Omens roaming around Iluma and Norsvold will need to be sealed inside the sachets and cleansed to finally be at peace.  Daily, all Daevas level 66 and above will receive three Containment Charms, per hour, for three hours. Using your standard abilities to defeat Omens have a chance to drop Harrowing Containment Charms.

The Purifying Trees inside the Iluma and Norsvold sanctuaries offer quests seeking Sealed Sachets and Large Sealed Sachets for the willing Daeva. Seal the Omens and Harrowing Omens using their respective Containment Charms and bring their sachets to the Purifying Trees. Once the sachets are hung on the tree, they will fade away revealing a special item.  

Additional Harrowing Containment Charms can be purchased from the store. Limit three per day.


-Rewards-

Kromede's Revenge has been voted by the community to return during our Daeva's Day celebrations! Explore the Smoldering File Temple and defeat Kromede for fabulous prizes!
 

- How to Participate -

In the capital cities of Pandaemonium and Sanctum, you can find Annaerunerk willing to transport you and your party (max of three players total) to the Smoldering Fire Temple for levels 40+. The event instance is available for free once per day and you can unlock additional entries with the Smoldering Fire Temple Bonus Entry Scrolls on the store. When you enter the instance, you will find three adventurers named Irish, Shine, and Stomper. Each adventurer have unique abilities that can only be used in the instance so be sure to decide among your party who will choose who. At the beginning of the instance you will also find a Potion Chest that will give you consumables you can use during your exploration. 

Proceed through the Smoldering Fire Temple, then defeat as many waves of monsters including the boss, Kromede, as you can in the allotted time for points. After eight minutes, you will be given a grade based on your group’s points which will determine how many Smoldering Fire Temple Treasure Chest Keys you obtain. You can use the one key to open the Elegant Treasure Chest or use three keys to open Dazzling Treasure Chest. You have a chance of receiving an Elite Treasure Chest from both the Dazzling and Elegant Chests. Combine it with an Elite Treasure Key, which is available from the store for even greater prizes! Elite Treasure Keys can also be used to open the Elegant Treasure Chest and the Dazzling Treasure Chest. Treasure Chests do not disappear when you leave the instance, however the Smoldering Fire Temple Treasure Chest Keys you obtain will!
