Scorched Sky 2023

Welcome to the sixth year for this summer event and the second year that the Summer Jubilee is running at the same time as the event./p>

This event will run on the live servers* from June 29, 2023 at 12:01 AM PT until July 13, 2023 at 11:59 PM PT on the live servers. (*Varsoon and Zarrakon will have the entire event with the exception of Combusting at the Seams, "Doomfire: Ro's Sweatshop", and Ro Resident Relics due to expansion availability. The entire event will be available on Kael Drakkel.)

Event Recap

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 Drop Quest: Brimfire and Flame

A quest starter will drop from loot from the event fire elementals. Like several of the recent live events, the quest updates will also drop from the same source once you examine the quest starter and accept the quest. At completion of the quest, you will be sent to one of several random locations to hand in the quest and receive your reward. (3 Silver Jubilation medals and your choice of either 5 Coins of Ember or the house item "Suppressing Rain Cinders" which is a special effect house item that cannot be resized.)

Adjusted Quest/Instance - Combusting at the Seams

The quest has been adjusted this year to be available for players of all levels (instead of just the level 120+ crowd.) This goes along with a level scaling version of the below-mentioned Doomfire dungeon for level 1-119 to go along with the level 120+ version. The quest is obtained from Chandrima near the Highland Outpost griffon tower in the Butcherblock Mountains. It also unlocks the portal to Doomfire: Ro's Sweatshop, which can be found next to the wizard spires in the Moors of Ykesha.

New Collection

Doomfire: Ro's Sweatshop now includes a second collection quest "Ro Resident Relics." Reward for completion of this quest is a "Petamorph Wand: Sizzlespit Mystifier"

New Buyables

Each of the nine celebration locations listed above has an Ember Merchant that sells items for "Coin of Ember". This year, the normal Ember Merchant sells only the new items, and an Ember Merchant Assistant will sell all the returning buyables.
