Scorched Sky 2021

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 fourth year for this summer mini-event. This year adds one quest and 34 new items including a full building block set and a mount.

This event will run on the live servers* from June 25, 2021 at 12:01 AM PT until July 8, 2021 at 11:59 PM PT on the live servers. (*Kaladim will have the full event, and Tarinax 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 returning 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.)

*Infernal Gem effect does not preview properly. It also does not resize, but it covers a small area in a burning flames effect.

**Obsidian Block Set is a full block set. The basic blocks each cost 2 coins for a pack of 15. The cut-out frames each cost 2 coins for a pack of 8.

***Note that the Pyrebringer's Whip shows the above flame effect when you preview it, but when you simply equip it, the flame effect is not visible. Fear not! When you have the whip equipped in your appearance slot and engage in combat, the flame effect is visible. (You don't want to be setting the town on fire when you're just wandering around, now, do you?)

****Scorch Storm Flinger really does fling you into the air when you step on it. Wheeeee!

In addition to the above, the "A Sparkler Merchant" in Freeport and Qeynos will sell Wyrmscale Armwrap for 2 coin of ember.

New Quest

Devotee Arborash in the Sinking Sands at /way -1479, -229, 2 will offer you the quest "Feats of Burning Devotion", which will award you with 8 coin of ember, and you choice of Replica: The Tyrant of Fire or the Ro Bed of Coals.

Returning Quests

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 returning 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 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

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 and 2020, with the addition of the Wyrmscale Armwrap mentioned above: 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).

Videos - A Closer Look

Flame-related stuff doesn't always preview well, so the fabulous Ocarinah has put together a long narrated furniture preview and a shorter, silent one. Thanks as always, dear lady!
