The sun rises, and it's the longest day of the year. Humans and Elves are coming from near and far and unite to celebrate the peace and glory brought by Mother Sun. People from all over Unur gather around the mystical stone formations of Stonehenge to be blessed by the sun. Everyone's hoping for a good harvest and ongoing peace. It sure is looking good!
But the Summer Solstice is not only reason to celebrate! Magic artifacts are said to unleash their powers on this very special day. So, sorceresses from all over the lands gather for a sacred meeting, hoping to witness the magic stemming from ancient artifacts themselves.
Will you join Melissa and Tandriel to see Golems come to life, an event that only a few chosen ones will ever get to experience?
Throughout the Summer Solstice you will have two Quest Lines to complete.
The first Quest Line is the Sequential Quest "Summer Solstice" which will give you many tasks to complete during the Event. The second Quest Line is the Daily Episodic Quest "Greetings to the Rising Sun" which will give you a specific task each day. Each quest will give you Sun Flares as a reward. They are added to your Event menu. With Sun Flares you can open different Chests to win unique and precious Event Buildings! The Chests also contain Flowers 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 Sun Flares you gathered to use:
2 - Allows you to buy Sun Flares with Diamonds.
4 - Here you can see how many Flowers you have collected and your progress to unlock the Grand Prizes.
5 - Shows you the Daily Exclusive reward you can get from opening the Chests and for how long it will be available before it is gone.
6 - Grand Prizes to be won by collecting 20-30 Flowers for each.
7 - Golem: As you collect Flowers, the golem begins to walk across the scene following the Flowers above to the Grand Prize.
8 - Indicates the remaining time for the Event.
You start the Summer Solstice Event with 50 Sun Flares and each Event Quest will give you more as a reward for completing the given tasks. Also, from time to time, you will find more Sun Flares around your city for you to collect.
You can then use the Sun Flares to open one of the Chests, which depending on your luck, may also give you more Sun Flares.
Remember that the Summer Solstice Event only lasts for a few weeks, and after that you will no longer be able to use your Sun Flares to get awesome rewards, so don't waste time!
There are 3 Chests to choose from! Each one gives you a chance to win the Daily Exclusive reward. Other rewards can be various Instants, Rune Shards and even more Sun Flares. It all depends on how lucky you are! By opening the Chests you will also get Flowers. Remember: each Chest will offer a different number of Flowers for your Sun Flares. So choose carefully.
Once you have chosen a Chest, they will rotate and present you with a new set of Chests.
Collecting the Flowers allows you to unlock the Grand Prizes! Each Grand Prize requires 20-30 Flowers to unlock it. Once you have collected your Grand Prize, you can begin to collect Flowers 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 open a Chest and add Flowers to the bunting, the golem will begin to move towards your goal of the Grand Prize. This gives you a good indication how many flowers are still needed until you get the next Grand Prize.
In the Summer Solstice, you can win a new Evolving Building : Stonehenge. Just like the other Evolving buildings, this one can be evolved through 10 stages to increase its power.
Stonehenge provides Population, Culture and Supplies for your city. As it evolves, it will also produce additional resources depending on your Research chapter.
For more information on Evolving Buildings go to our dedicated page on the topic.
Grand Prizes & Expiring Buildings
Each day you will have a chance to win a Daily Exclusive prize but the main aim is to win the fantastic Grand Prizes.
This time, Grand Prizes include the essential Stongehenge Artifact Instant that evolves your Stonehenge 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 and the Ferris Wheel Galore, which lets you produce Boosters, Knowledge Points or Broken Shards as you wish. There is also the Wishing Well, that gives you a random reward every 12 hours.
Be sure to complete all the Event Quests so that you can have a chance to win every single one of these wonderful prizes.
