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.

[*]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...

From now until January 2nd, 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 other than the Training Fields, 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 10 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, 2016. Be sure to open all of them before the event ends!

Nocturne dragons aren't the only thing storming across Sornieth. As the days grow short and the temperature drops, dragons will be battling a harsh weather cold front. Autumn Breeze apparel will cycle out of the Treasure Marketplace on Dec 20th, 23:59, and Winter Wind apparel will cycle in, where it will remain until Friday, March 20th.

Additional Updates:

  • Swipp's swap stand now has a chance to trade event food and trinkets for strange chests. Please note that we've added multiple copies of each trade to the Swapper's offers table to make them pop more frequently. Because of this, it's rare, but possible swipp and his daughters may offer the same NotN trade at the same time.
  • The single strange chest recipe in Baldwin's Bubbling Brew had its level requirement lowered to 2 (down from 3)
  • A new strange chest recipe for two chests is now available in baldwin's bubbling brew for level three alchemists.
  • There is a new sorcerer's apparel set available in the treasure marketplace.
  • Bears, Phony Bears, and Mimic familiars are now hoard-sellable. This means that if you have duplicates you do not want, you can vendor them, trade them to crim, or brew them in baldwin.


Additional Clarifications on the Event:

  • Mimic monsters (living chests, statues, orbs, books, puppets, and mirrors) appear in every venue of the coliseum except the training fields. One monster lives in each venue.
  • All mimic monsters (living chests, statues, orbs, books, puppets, and mirrors) have a chance to drop strange chests and mimic powder. Each also has a chance to drop one of the food and trinket items.
  • Chests have a chance to drop every familiar in the update (bears, phony bears, mimic monsters) except for agol, which is crafted exclusively through Baldwin.
  • Chests can be found in every elemental region of every gathering profession. It doesn't matter what you use to gather, where you gather, or your level. Chests are an additional chance to roll in addition to a player's normal gathering yields.
  • For the first hour and a half of the festival, the coliseum enemy set configurations were not all in, so encounter rates were extremely rare. The remaining enemy groups were added in early this morning.
