Mauriel and her Mermaids arrive in Elvenar. With them they bring a beach and vacation flavor to your city. All the different races of Elvenar are now enjoying the beach-party lifestyle and the fun-buildings the happy merfolk have in store. Imagine the sight of Orcs surfing, Halflings checking the tourist hotspots, chilled out Elves and Humans on the beaches and Dwarves, burnt in the sun, inevitably ending up at the beach bar! Even the Amuni are there. Well, they do love sand.
Throughout the Summer Mermaids Event you have a new style "endless" Quest Line.
In this event, you cannot run out of quests anymore! As you join Mauriel and her friends in the quest to collect more Corals, you will notice that there is no more hard end to the quest line. Keep working on all the tasks you get and you can keep gathering as many Corals as you wish. To be able to achieve this open end, we are adding a little twist to the system. Because of this, you might notice that your personal Quest requirements may, at certain points, differ from the ones your fellow players are getting. But worry not, thanks to the way the game chooses these requirements, every player will face a very similar difficulty curve in the event and you will see a great variety in tasks within this open-ended quest line.
Completing each Quest will give you Corals indicated in the Quest. Corals are added to your Summer Mermaids menu and with them you can choose different Shells to win unique and precious Event Buildings! The Shells also contain Pearls to unlock mighty Grand Prizes!
By clicking the Event Menu icon you will access the Event Window which will give you plenty of information and allow you to put the Corals you collected to use:
1 - Indicates the remaining time for the Event.
2 - Shows you the Daily Exclusive reward you can get from choosing the Shells and for how long it will be available before it is gone.
4 - Allows you to buy Corals with Premium currency.
5 - Mermaid: As you collect Pearls, the friendly Mermaid begins to swim across the scene showing you the Pearls you have collected towards the Grand Prize.
6 - Grand Prizes to be won by collecting the 20 Pearls each.
7 - Here you can see how many Pearls you have collected and your progress to unlock the Grand Prizes.
You start the Summer Mermaids Event with 50 Corals and each Event Quest will give you more as a reward for completing the given Quests. Also, from time to time, you will find more Corals around your city for you to collect.
You can then use the Corals to access one of the Shells which, depending on your luck, may also give you more Corals.
Remember that the Summer Mermaids Event only lasts for a few weeks, and after that you will no longer be able to use your Corals to get awesome rewards, so don't waste time!
There are 3 Shells to choose from! Each one gives you a chance to win the Daily Exclusive reward. Other rewards can be Ancient Knowledge Instants, Coin Rain, Supply Windfall, Time Booster, Portal Profit Instants, Rune Shards and even more Corals. It all depends on how lucky you are! By accessing the Shells you will also get Pearls. Remember: each Shell will offer a different number of Pearls for your Corals. So choose carefully.
Once you have chosen a Shell, they will rotate and present you with a new set of Shells.
Collecting the Pearls allows you to unlock the Grand Prizes! Each Grand Prize requires 20 Pearls to unlock it. Once you have collected your Grand Prize, you can begin to collect Pearls for the next one.
|Please note: All building values and effects depend on the chapter you are in at the time you add the buildings to your Inventory.|
When you access a Shell, you add Pearls to your collection on the sea bed. Mauriel the Mermaid will look after them and show your progress to your goal of the Grand Prize. This gives you a good indication how many Pearls are still needed until you get the next Grand Prize.
In the Summer Mermaids Event, a new Evolving Building: Mermaids Paradise. This can be evolved with Mermaid Artifacts through 10 stages to increase its power.
It can provide Population, Culture and Basic Goods for your city. As the building evolves, it will produce additional Goods and Ancient Knowledge Instants.
For more information on Evolving Buildings go to our dedicated page on the topic.
Grand Prizes & Expiring Buildings
Each day you will have a the chance to win a Daily Exclusive prize and also fantastic Grand Prizes.
This time, Grand Prizes include the essential Mermaids Artifact Instant that evolves the Mermaids Paradise to the next level. See Evolving Buildings for more information on the evolution process.
There are more awesome Prizes to be won! You are probably already familiar with Expiring Buildings that give you special rewards.
Once again the Event brings us some of our favorite Expiring Buildings. The Monument of Ancient Knowledge, for instance, gives an Ancient Knowledge 3 Instant every 48 hours. There is also the Wishing Well, that gives you a random reward every 12 hours, and the Ferris Wheel Galore, which lets you produce Instants, Knowledge Points or Broken Shards as you wish.
Be sure to complete as many Event Quests as you can so that you can have a chance to win every single one of these wonderful prizes.
