These oft-hidden dragons are again leaving the comfort of their dreary habitats and traversing Sornieth under the cover of darkness. On this, the shortest day of the year, [b]Nocturne [/b]dragons rule the skies. [center][url=http://flightrising.com/main.php?p=mb&board=ann&id=2066008][b]Click here to read more about this update.[/b][/url][/center] [more] [center][img]http://flightrising.com/dropbox/header_nocturnedragons.png[/img][/center] [i]Night of the Nocturne[/i] is the third annual celebration of one of [i]Flight Rising[/i]'s [url=http://flightrising.com/main.php?p=wiki&article=17][b]Limited[/b][/url] breeds, scrolls for which can only be collected via this in-game event once a year! Nocturnes have a 30-day breeding cooldown and eat [b]Meat[/b] and [b]Insects[/b]. [center][img]http://flightrising.com/dropbox/noc_family.png[/img][/center] [center][img]http://flightrising.com/dropbox/header_eventdetails.png[/img][/center] From now until [b]December 31, 23:59 server time[/b], it will be possible to attain Nocturne Dragons in the following ways: [LIST] [*]Finding rare [b]Unhatched Nocturne Eggs[/b]. [*]Finding very rare [b]Breed Change: Nocturne[/b] scroll items. [/LIST] The items above will be found in [b]Strange Chests[/b]--baffling containers left by the breed during their only two weeks of activity. Nocturnes aren't keen to just shower the realm in gifts, however. Several of these chests have a vicious mind of their own, and some are now known to be under the protection of some new clever and camouflaged foes... In order to find these chests, use [url=http://flightrising.com/main.php?p=gather][b]any gathering skill[/b][/url] in any elemental region or battle Mimic monsters in the [url=http://flightrising.com/main.php?p=coliseum][b]Coliseum[/b][/url]. They can be encountered in all Coliseum areas, with higher level mimics having a greater chance to drop a chest. It will also be rarely possible to find [b]Unhatched Nocturne Eggs[/b] while [url=http://flightrising.com/main.php?p=gather][b]Scavenging[/b][/url] in any elemental region. [url=http://www1.flightrising.com/trading/baldwin][b]Baldwin[/b][/url] is keen to have new alchemists help him craft the perfect brew to unlock the secrets of strange chests. After two weeks have passed, Nocturnes, their eggs, and their [b]Strange Chests[/b] will become scarce until next year, when they again return. [center][item=Breed Change: Nocturne][item=Strange Chest][item=Unhatched Nocturne Egg][/center] To help kick off the event, we have granted all players an [b]additional 15 Gathering Turns[/b] for today only! If these bonus gathering turns are unused, they'll disappear after the next rollover. [center][size=4][b]IMPORTANT NOTE: Strange Chests will disintegrate after [u]23:59 server time, January 2, 2017[/u]. Be sure to open all of them before the event ends![/b][/size][/center] [center][img]http://flightrising.com/dropbox/header_nocturnelore.png[/img][/center] Engineered by the Shadowbinder herself to be covert, hidden, and adaptable, Nocturne dragons have the incredible ability mimic the sounds, motions, and behaviors of other dragons and creatures. This interesting adaptation can have its drawbacks, though.

But many of the creatures who give up these chests will likely part with some other trinkets!

At the end of the event, these familiars will disappear until next year. Familiars that appears in last year's event have a less common chance of being found in the chests compared to familiars that are new to this year's festivities. Just be wary, with all the copycatting and mimicry afoot, will you find a normal ursine guardian, or a clever doppelgänger...?

From now until December 31, 23:59 server time, it will be possible to attain Nocturne Dragons in the following ways:

  • Finding rare Unhatched Nocturne Eggs.
  • Finding very rare Breed Change: Nocturne scroll items.

The items above will be found in Strange Chests--baffling containers left by the breed during their only two weeks of activity. Nocturnes aren't keen to just shower the realm in gifts, however. Several of these chests have a vicious mind of their own, and some are now known to be under the protection of some new clever and camouflaged foes...



In order to find these chests, use any gathering skill in any elemental region or battle Mimic monsters in the Coliseum. They can be encountered in all Coliseum areas, with higher level mimics having a greater chance to drop a chest. It will also be rarely possible to find Unhatched Nocturne Eggs while Scavenging in any elemental region. Baldwin is keen to have new alchemists help him craft the perfect brew to unlock the secrets of strange chests. After two weeks have passed, Nocturnes, their eggs, and their Strange Chests will become scarce until next year, when they again return.



To help kick off the event, we have granted all players an additional 15 Gathering Turns for today only! If these bonus gathering turns are unused, they'll disappear after the next rollover.

IMPORTANT NOTE:
Strange Chests will disintegrate after 23:59 server time, January 2, 2017. Be sure to open all of them before the event ends!

Updates
  • Night of the Nocturne coliseum monster additions are a work in progress. They are showing up in all venues, but throughout the night additional configurations and greater frequency will be added.
  • Night of the Nocturne coliseum food and trinket drops will be tweaked throughout the day. All enemies are currently dropping food, trinkets, powder, and chests, but WHAT food and trinkets they drop is being worked on. The goal is to provide an even distribution of all item types. (for example, there are currently not enough enemies dropping cuckoos, and too many dropping flounder.) When this is complete, this status will be updated.



FAQ
Quote:
Are the mimic chests the only monsters that drop strange chests and Night of the Nocturne trinkets?
No, there are 31 enemies in the coliseum that are dropping the event items. They look like the familiars pictured above (excluding the bears). There are two types in every venue except for training fields, woodland path, and scorched forest, which have one night of the nocturne enemy type.

Quote:
Will _________ be retiring at the end of the event?
Night of the Nocturne event items cycle, so they will be back (though likely at a lower frequency if they are chest items) next year.


Quote:
Why are there two of the same Night of the Nocturne trades appearing at Swipp's?
To increase the frequency that Night o the Nocturne event items appear at Swipp's, we loaded the trades into his draw chances multiple times. This stacks the deck in favor of event-trades! However, because the same trades are loaded in multiple times, they have a chance to be drawn multiple times as well. We recommend trading with the swapper who asks for the smallest fee in this case.


Quote:
Why am I doing less damage?
During traffic times that exceed 4.5K users online, our coliseum occasionally fails to load battlestone data, so your dragons will lose their stats awarded by battle stones. This issue will be addressed in the coliseum 2.0 rewrite. Our apologies for the inconvenience.
