    Introduction – Plot

    This event is all about Viscanium, a magical mineral used by the Spellweavers to create magical books, in which the story of Dracania is written down. Viscanium is gathered from a mysterious mine, a hidden place, somewhere in Dracania.

    The mine was recently attacked and eventually taken over by dark dwarves. The dwarves have built a submarine dock underneath the mine in order to transport the stolen Viscanium to Stalgard, where they plan to create dangerous military equipment with it.
    The Spellweavers ask the heroes of Dracania to stop the dwarves and their minions, as Viscanium can be a dangerous weapon in the hands of the dark dwarves.

    How to start the event

    In order to start the event you need to speak with NPC Mud and NPC Shady John in Kingshill. Hear what they have to say, accept their quests and make your way to the Viscanium Mine. The entrance is located right next to Mud and Shady John.

    of hidden treasures he wanted to discover. He asks the player in all upcoming events for help.

    Inside the Viscanium Mine

    In the Viscanium Mine you have plenty of opportunities to gather Pure Viscanium, which you need in order to progress in the overall event. The mine is occupied by a dangerous array of monsters that need to be put into place. Three bigger champion monsters can also be found in the mine.​

    Adding Pure Viscanium to the event progress bar: Viscanium Rocks and Geodes

    In the entire mine you can find several clickable objects; most notably the Viscanium Rocks and Geodes, that hold the desirable Pure Viscanium. The stack size that can be mined can vary from 1 to 10 pieces.​

    dh-004.png
    • Viscanium Rocks: Through a simple click these rocks will drop either Pure or Impure Viscanium. No Crystal Miner’s Pickaxes pickaxe needed!
    dh-005.png
    • Viscanium Geodes: They will always drop Pure Viscanium but your character has to use Crystal Miner’s Pickaxes in order to mine Pure Viscanium. Be careful though; there is a chance that a wild Viscanium Minion will appear to protect the geode!
    Event state-objects: the Amphorae

    The Amphorae are special event chests. To open them you need Amphorae Keys. The Amphorae always drop their loot for the player who opened them, but every group member in the location should be able to open the same Amphora. There are two different kinds of Amphorae:
    dh-006.png

    • Festive Amphorae: you will need 1 key to open one.
    • More Festive Amphorae: you will need 5 keys to open one. They enjoy a better drop.
    What can you expect from these amphorae? A great deal of amazing items: virtual currency, Pure Viscanium, Draken, pickaxes, entries for the Viscanium Mine and the Steamship Harbor, pieces of equipment, and much more!!​

    The dark dwarves are using this underground harbor to smuggle Viscanium and it is your task to stop them. The Secret Steamship Harbor can only be accessed once the Dark Dwarf Heist Challenges have started (see timetables below) and your hero will need at least 100 Lowering Contraption Burners to access the map. This entrance fee has to be paid every time your hero wants to access the harbor.​

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Why do I need Draken?

    This is our event currency. You can only win Draken during the event. They are useful in the game, since the event merchant named Gnob sometimes drops by Kingshill and sells special items which can only be bought with Draken.​
