    Official Event Guide & Walkthrough
    Dark Dwarf Heist

    [​IMG]
    Quick Overview

    Required levels1-45 (*see notice below)
    Duration21st May - 1st of June (11 days)
    Number of Quests 5
    *Please note: The event is playable from level 1 on but of course you need to go through the tutorial in order to play it. You can play the event on your own (single), but it might be easier to play in a group.

    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.

    Recently the mine was attacked and eventually taken over by dark dwarfs. The dwarfs 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 dwarfs and their minions, as Viscanium can be a dangerous weapon in the hands of the dark dwarfs.
    Start the Event

    To start the event you need to speak with NPC Mud, the Viscanium Miner, and NPC Shady John in major cities of Dracania (Kingshill, Ellonidos, etc). Accept their quests and make your way to the Viscanium Mine. The entrance is located right next to NPCs Mud and Shady John.

    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 event. The mine is occupied by plenty of monsters that need to be put into place. Three bigger champion monsters can also be found in the mine.

    Viscanium Rocks & 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 from Viscanium Rocks and Geodes can vary from 1 to 10 pieces.

    Viscanium Rocks

    Through a simple click these rocks will drop either Pure or Impure Viscanium.
    Viscanium Geodes
    Viscanium Geodes will always drop Pure Viscanium but your character has to use Crystal Miner’s Pickaxes in order to mine Pure Viscanium from the Viscanium Geodes. Be careful though; there is a chance that a wild Viscanium Minion will appear and attack you once you clicked on the Viscanium Geode.

    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 sometime drops by Kingshill and sells special items which can only be bought with Draken.

    Can I continue with the “Kill Sargon 999 times” (Entering the Shadow Kingdom) Quest?

    Yes, you can progress in the quest by defeating Sargon the Terrible in Nightmare ‘Blazing Inferno’.
