Scorched Sky 2020

You need not fear any of the devotees of Flame you are bound to encounter across Norrath during this time of celebration. Within the flames all mettle is tempered, that which is weak, distracting, and fleeting is burned away, leaving only the strong, pure, and resilient! Join them in lifting up the Tyrant of Fire and the Burning Prince and you too will know the cleansing intensity of Fire.

Welcome to the third year for this summer mini-event. This year adds a new 3-quest overseer series and 18 new buyables for the event.

This event will run on the live servers* from June 24, 2020 at 12:01 AM PT until July 7, 2020 at 11:59 PM PT on the live servers. (*Kaladim will be able to do the fireworks quest in Qeynos/Freeport and will have a special event vendor in both those cities as well.)

This event involves nine zones. There is a collection that requires shinies from at least three zones. (Each zone has 3 purple shinies that can spawn near the celebration NPCs.) You can also visit any of the 9 locations to find scaling fire elemental mob types that will become active and aggro, at your level as you walk close to them. These mobs will drop tradeable Coin of Ember that can be used to shop at the merchants located in each of the 9 celebration locations. You can be grouped while killing these elemental mobs, and all group members will receive coin(s) from the mob chest. (Non-members get 1 coin, members get double currency, so get 2 coins.)

Notes

The Burning Embers Tile and the Flowing Lava Divider come in bundles of 15.

The Burnt House Actor will have some issues with aerakyn and sarnak. You may need to modify/save the appearance a time or two before head/horns and wings will properly appear.

The Pyrelord Ceremonial Bowl previews oddly - is see-through from the top and will pick up color based on what it is placed on. Thus, the maroon background preview causes it to appear maroon.

New Overseer Series

The charged overseer quest works like the other event-based overseer quests. You must have the overseer feature unlocked, and must pick up the first quest in the series from the questgiver each time you wish to repeat the series. Thus, you can only start the quest while the event is running. The questgiver is Estmund Vynaan in Lavastorm, at the Scorched Sky camp (/way -85, 15, 63).

  • Conflagrant Rites - Crozier Quest (30 minutes). Rewards Conflagrant Tome Plushie
  • Conflagrant Rites - Bringing Flame Bearers (30 minutes). Rewards Agent Dirron Emberblood (immolating trait)
  • Conflagrant Rites - Cinderstone Heist (1 hour). Rewards Rolling Cinderstone (fluff pet) and prefix title "Flame Bearer"

Conflagrant Tome Plushie
Rolling Cinderstone (fluff pet)

Returning Quest: "The Heat is On"

This quest is offered at the celebration location in Darklight Woods. It does not involve any combat, though the event elementals will require at-level combat if you pass close enough to one to trigger it. (You need/want tokens for your shopping anyway, so this isn't a bad thing!)

Completion of the quest will reward you with 4 Coin of Ember (8 if you are a member), and your choice of either Flame Tuatara Eggs or Flame Tuatara Plushie. This quest does not give group updates at this time. (I will edit this if that changes during testing.)

Flame Tuatara Eggs
Flame Tuatara Plushie

Returning Quest: {City} Festive Fireworks

Cities have "A Fireworks Coordinator" and "A Sparkler Merchant". You must obtain the Festive Sparkler for 10c from the Sparkler Merchant before the Fireworks Coordinator will give you the ____ Festive Fireworks quest to light off 10 fireworks, which spawn within that city. Reward is your choice of a city-specific fireworks launcher or 1 Coin of Ember (2 if you are a member). The quest appears to be endlessly repeatable.

  • Qeynos - Claymore statue in NQ
  • Kelethin - beside the bank
  • Frostfang Sea - at /way -62, 148, -11 in New Halas
  • Timorous Deep - Gorowyn Docks
  • Neriak - Indigo Hollow in Neriak at /way 14, 16, -15
  • Freeport - across the street from the bank in WFP at /way 215, -3, -73

The Sparkler Merchant also has a more limited set of items for sale than the merchants out at the celebration spots. The items on the Sparkler Merchant are currently the same as 2019: Blaze Elemental (housepet, 3 coins), Burned Stump (2 coins), Burned Tree (2 coins), Emberorb Elemental (housepet, 3 coins), Golden Flame Brazier (2 coins), Golden Flame Chandelier (4 coins), Lavastorm Coalbin (2 coins), Petamorph Wand: Pyre Elemental (3 coins), Smoking Stump (2 coins), Spilled Lavastorm Coalbin (2 coins).Kaitheel is looking into adding a few more items to that vendor, but we will have to wait another Test patch or two (every Friday night) to find out what has been added.

Achievement

Destroy 25 of the various fire elemental types that will attack you near the celebration bonfires, and you will complete the Tempered by Flame hidden achievement and earn the suffix title ", the Scorched."

Quest Tracker?

We have an updated quest tracker from Casdoe of Maj'Dul for tracking the achievement, quests and collection for your alts. (Some of you will also want to do fireworks in more than one city for your quest count!) Scorched Sky quest tracker in XLS form and there is also a PDF version.. These have now been updated for 2020. Thanks much, ma'am!

Video Previews?

Ocarinah has done it again with a Scorched Sky House Item Preview and a shorter silent version of the preview. As always, thanks for the videos!
