Scorched Sky 2022

Welcome to the fifth year for this summer event. This year adds a new level 120+ adventuring quest involving a solo/heroic instance, a new collection in that instance, and 38 new buyables, including another block set and a mount./p>

This event will run on the live servers* from June 30, 2022 at 12:01 AM PT until July 13, 2021 at 11:59 PM PT on the live servers. (*Varsoon will have the "Festive Fireworks" city quests and a special event merchant, and will obtain Copper Jubilation Medals from the fireworks quests. Kaladim, Kael Drakkel and Tarinax will have all of the event other than the new "Combusting at the Seams" quest and the new "Doomfire: Ro's Sweatshop" instance.

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.)

New Quest - Combusting at the Seams

This quest, like the new one from Tinkerfest 2022, is a level 120+ quest leading to your choice of a solo or heroic instance. The quest is obtained from Chandrima near the Highland Outpost griffon tower in the Butcherblock Mountains. This quest will also unlock the portal to Doomfire: Ro's Sweatshop, which can be found next to the wizard spires in the Moors of Ykesha. Completion of the quest will grant you an adventuring cloak, and your choice of either 4 Coin of Ember or a Replica of Ayonae's Cithara house item. Ability to hire Jacinder (mended scorched doll) from Butcherblock Mountains is also unlocked at the completion of this quest. (Healer merc, Shattered Lands Batallion buff.) The quest will also grant Copper Jubilation Medals, as will the instances' "daily" (18-hour) mission.

You will need 5 coruscating filament to complete the quest, so plan accordingly if you don't have an item to summon a fuel vendor!

Returning Quests

Returning Quest: Feats of Burning Devotion

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. In 2022 it will also grant you Copper Jubilation Medals.

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"

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. In 2022 it will also grant you Copper Jubilation Medals.

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.

  • Frostfang Sea - at /way -62, 148, -11 in New Halas
  • Timorous Deep - Gorowyn Docks
