    Anniversary Event Challenge - Larcenous Dark Dwarves

    A new challenge will be part of the latest Anniversary Event and will come with additional chances of opening a Golden Piñata.

    Evil Dark Dwarves are stealing Phestos’ crystals of truth. They want to shredder the crystals to use them for their war machines.​

    By defeating the dark dwarves, players can collect the event progress item “Shredded Crystals of Truth” to complete the challenge and receive a Golden Truncheon. This is needed to open a Golden Piñata. Players will need 7000 x Shredded Crystals of Truth to complete the challenge.

    Players can find traces of the dark dwarves in urban areas to figure out, in which dungeons they must look for the dwarves (on painful and higher). The dark dwarves can be found near one of the Mysterious Anniversary Eggs.​

    The challenge will be active for 2 days per region.​

    Please check the event schedule in the forums and on social media for the exact dates! Regions included:
    • Duria

    Dear Heroes,

    Please find below some Q&A regarding R212 that you might find interesting:

    Why is the essence stack 50k and not 100k?

    The limit has technical background. For example, for saving 100k stacks we would have to change how the items are stored. The increase to 50k is kind of a quick and easy compromise (and no, it’s currently not planned to increase it to 100k)

    Is the “Dragan Laser” dealing the correct damage because some players consider it as too much?

    If it’s making the damage stated on the tooltip it is correct.
    Position of the exit arrow for “Q4” was changed. Why only for “Q4” and what about adding a “leave dungeon” request window?

    It was changed for “Q4” only as it was the most problematic one. BUT as the “leave dungeon” request window is about to be implemented with the next release, this issue should be solved.

    Sentinel Quest “A mighty Threat” appearing on normal mode in scaling dungeons.

    This bug is known and a fix is currently planned for the next release.
    Sentinel Quest “A mighty Threat” is not recognizing the Goblin

    This bug is known and a fix is currently planned for the next release.
    Healing is displayed as white/yellow numbers instead of green. Is this intended?

    Not intended but a bug. Already fixed for the next release.
    Rhino Pet - Where can it be obtained?

    Within the next Premium Day.
    Where can you get the emote “The People’s Pendulum” from?

    It’s not obtainable in-game yet. It’s a “Community-Emote” that is currently only available through raffles, challenges and “Play2Win” (the event where CM Jesse is playing with random players and rewarding them)

    Gloves of Zeal – There is a recipe for it at NPC Emilia, does it belong to the Premium Day and is it related (unique set) with the Belt of Zeal?

    Yes, the gloves will be obtainable during Premium Day and no, it’s not building a set with the belt.

    Steam Mechanicus mystic cube set – the attack range was not adjusted.

    Known issue and fix is currently planned for the next release.
