From the veiled brambles and branches of the Tangled Wood, the elusive Nocturnes are beginning to spread across the realm. 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, Nocturne dragons rule the skies.

Night of the Nocturne is the fourthannual celebration of one of Flight Rising's Limited 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 Meat and Insects.

From now until December 30, 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!

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. Find out more about the Shadowbinder's sneaky sentinels in the lore article below:

In this year's event, Strange Chests will only contain valuable items: breed change scrolls, unhatched Nocturne eggs, apparel, vistas, and familiars. But many of the creatures who give up these chests will likely part with some other trinkets! Below are some items that you'll be able to procure:








Within the murky contents of the Nocturne's Strange Chests, you may have a chance to happen upon these new and returning familiars and mimics. 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. As an update to last year's festivities, elemental bears and their color variant counterparts have been removed from Strange Cheste and the Night of the Nocturne event. They will begin appearing in Joxar's Spare Inventory as a bonus chance item in June of 2018.

Just be wary, with all the copycatting and mimicry afoot, will you find a new friend, or a clever doppelgänger...?














The Night of the Nocturne may leave its mark on your future words, in the form of decorative forum vistas to grace your posts on the messageboards. The following vistas may be obtained by opening strange chests (conjurer's hat, gossamer flame, & jester), purchasing from the treasure marketplace (glowing globe& animated statue), purchasing from the gem marketplace (feral visage), or trading with Swipp's crew (hourglass & living stones).

The enchanted cobwebs found inside many strange chests are having an alarming effect on dragons! The smirch gene has made itself known, and is altering the tertiary genes of unwary dragons. This gene has a rare chance of being found inside strange chests!

Updates: Coliseum venues level 23 and above will temporarily not have NotN enemies. Adding them in now. Venues below level 23 are fully stocked. Enemies in all venues now.

A couple of familiar descriptions are duplicated. These will be addressed after coliseum enemies are in order. Corrected, though it may take up to a couple of hours for the site's tooltip cache to catch up.

Some enemies have animation issues. Corrected. You may need to refresh your cache.

Enjoy the event!
