Am I the only one that hasn't received that dormant obelisk statue? I participated in the event but I haven't gotten my item?
I haven't gotten one either.


Go visit Velya at the Dustcarve Dig site!

After several days of digging, Velya and her crew made the discovery of a generation: beneath the dry crust of Dragonhome, the Obelisk dragons shed their rocky exteriors and joined the realm as its newest modern breed.



Obelisks Unearthed

The Dustcarve Dig has concluded, and the great discovery turned out to be a brand new dragon breed created recently beneath our very feet! Thank you to everyone who participated in what we felt was a really exciting and collaborative experience. What a great way to kick off our eigth year!

New Lore: Subterranean Secrets

Discover the Earthshaker's urgent necessity for creating the Obelisk dragons. Manifested during a time of great elemental upheaval, this new breed steps out into world of Sornieth with an earthshaking divine duty to carry out.

New Modern Breed: Obelisk

With this update, Flight Rising is introducing its first modern breed in nearly six years, the Obelisk! While all participants of the Dustcarve Dig event received a Dormant Obelisk Statue (which spawns one adult Obelisk), it will be possible to purchase additional breed change scrolls in the Treasure Marketplace.

The Obelisk is an uncommon breed (possessing a 25 day breeding cooldown) that eats seafood and insects. It can breed with all other modern breeds and wear all existing apparel.

Obelisk Emoji and Vista
Obelisk Emoji and a Vista are now available. The vista can be found in the treasure marketplace


Event System

We hope everyone enjoyed the Dustcarve Dig, which was possible thanks to an entirely new event system we call Efforts. Efforts are, as you know, large sitewide campaigns that all active players can participate in to find items, turn them in, earn rewards, and even experience a mini-story together.

Dustcarve Dig was the first, but it will certainly not be the last event of this type. Now that we've developed the infrastructure for it, we can use it for new and exciting events in the future!

If you have any feedback for Dustcarve Dig itself or thoughts on improvements we can make in subsequent events, please let us know in the Suggestions forum or submit them directly to us through Contact Us using the 'Suggestions' category, and we'll be sure to take them into consideration!
ICYMI: Scheduled Maintenance at 09:00
Jun 16, 2021, 05:57:27
Since the note about maintenance is still at the top of Site Status, we'll drop the reminder here:

We are performing a scheduled maintenance TODAY JUNE 16, 2021 at 09:00 server time.

The Flight Rising website will be unavailable to players during this time. This is your last chance to receive Dustcarve Dig event participation credit before the very special event reward is revealed!
next time let's do something different
Jun 15, 2021, 08:35:34
So, we're going to go ahead and lock this thread, partly because it's a suggestion in FRD, and also due to the targeted commentarybeing posted, directed at your fellow players.

Thank you for your feedback, we've been actively reading and discussing your feedback since Dustcarve Dig started.

I want to leave you with one thought:

The event isn't over. You don't have the full picture yet. Sit tight, take a moment to breathe, and revisit feedback when this event is done in its entirety.
Event supplies PSA
Jun 15, 2021, 05:45:16
Quick heads up: Event supplies are still dropping and will continue to do so until maintenance tomorrow. This is to ensure anyone only just now able to log in can still receive event participation credit.

If Tunnel 5/Milestone 5 flips to resting overnight, we'll give you the formal update once we're up, awake, and online for the standard workday.

And as long as Dustcarve Dig is in resting mode, you'll be able to receive credit for turning in supplies for Tunnel 5!

Like what if we all just collectively stopped submitting oil and didn't fill the bar in time of maintenance

I mean you could, but you'd be denying yourselves the last bit of Tunnel 5 lore and art, and not get all the fun of dissecting it, theorizing over what exactly it could mean, etc, but I mean I guess?

i smell fear

...of my coffee pot breaking before I get my first cup of the day.

Whenever Tunnel 5 bars fill up completely—later today or early tomorrow—expect there to be a longer rest period than the others. This is to ensure everyone who wants it gets a chance for event participation credit and rewards.

wait a minute, "longer rest period" instead of just saying it'll be up for a while? i think this pretty much confirms another stage :0

The milestones have an active and resting period. During the rest period is when players who may not have been able to log in during the active phase can still turn in supplies for credit. It's just the name and accurate description of the phase. We'll be able to provide more details when the bars are all filled and Tunnel 5 is in the rest phase.

And as Velya said—we're close!

Hmm...I like that they've been building up suspense but assuming we finish today I don't really like the idea of having to wait an extra day with nothing to do :/ Maybe there is in fact a secret 6th stage?

Jun 13, 2021, 07:33:46
Good morning, everyone! I can't go into much of anything at this time, but I'm sticking my head in real quick to remind everyone that Dustcarve Dig isn't done. Let's not put the cart before the horse, so to speak, especially so early on a Sunday.

If when all is said and done, you feel disappointed with the event and its reward, we'll take your feedback so we can do better in the future. But for now, let's get to the bottom of the Earthshaker's summons and complete this dig!

It's late Saturday, almost early Sunday morning for many of us on the team. If you complete the Wooden Beams bar overnight and move Tunnel 4 to resting mode, we'll update you on the next milestone/tunnel start time in the morning. It won't be right away like it has been for the others.

Armik holds the excavation record on Sornieth. That's why he's the lead excavator on an expedition of such magnitude.

Oh, and it appears that this thread's run its course, so it's locked now. Thank you!

The Guild has very strict by-laws on the minimum allowed age for apprentices to participate in excavation—Absolutely no juveniles in active mining digs. Adult dragons only.
