From the pages of Niami Denmother:

Scorched Sky 2018

 

 

You need not fear any of the devotees of Flame you are bound to encounter across Norrath during this time of celebration. Within the flames all mettle is tempered, that which is weak, distracting, and fleeting is burned away, leaving only the strong, pure, and resilient! Join them in lifting up the Tyrant of Fire and the Burning Prince and you too will know the cleansing intensity of Fire.

 

This is the first year for this new summer event, and like most new events, it is starting small with much room to grow. I will be fleshing out details over the next few days as we test this event on the Test server.

 

This event will run on the live servers* from June 28, 2018 at 12:01 AM PT until July 9, 2018 at 11:59 PM PT on the live servers. This event includes: 1 repeatable fireworks quest in every city, 1 collection quest that requires shinies from at least 3 zones, 1 achievement, mobs to kill for coins, and vendors at the celebration bonfires in the same zones that the shinies spawn in. (*Fallen Gate will only have the fireworks and a Sparkler Merchant in each city with a more limited selection of items to buy. Stormhold will get the entire event.)

 

For 2018, this event will occur in nine zones. There will be a collection that requires shinies from at least three zones. (Each zone has 3 purple shinies that can spawn near the celebration NPCs.) You can also visit any of the 9 locations to find scaling fire elemental mob types that will become active and aggro, at your level as you walk close to them. These mobs will drop tradeable Coin of Ember that can be used to shop at the merchants located in each of the 9 celebration locations.

 

Collection and Celebration Locations

 

There are 9 overland zones in which you will find celebrators, event merchants, and mobs to kill for coins.

Collection reward is "Tapestry of the Magma Heart"

 

 

The Buyables

 

Each of the nine celebration locations listed above has an that sells items for "Coin of Ember". Before I get into the items and their costs, however, note that basic building blocks come in packs of 15. The "cut-out" blocks come in packs of 8.

Quest: {City} Festive Fireworks

 

This portion of the event will be active on all servers. Cities have "A Fireworks Coordinator" and "A Sparkler Merchant". You must obtain the Festive Sparkler for 10c from the Sparkler Merchant before the Fireworks Coordinator will give you the ____ Festive Fireworks quest to light off 10 fireworks, which spawn within that city. Reward is your choice of a city-specific fireworks launcher or 1 Coin of Ember (2 if you are a member). The quest appears to be endlessly repeatable.

 

  • Qeynos - Claymore statue in NQ
  • Kelethin - beside the bank
  • Frostfang Sea - at /way -62, 148, -11 in New Halas
  • Timorous Deep - Gorowyn Docks
  • Neriak - Indigo Hollow in Neriak at /way 14, 16, -15
  • Freeport - across the street from the bank in WFP at /way 215, -3, -73

 

The Sparkler Merchant also has a more limited set of items for sale than the merchants out at the celebration spots. The items on the Sparkler Merchant are: Blaze Elemental (housepet, 3 coins), Burned Stump (2 coins), Burned Tree (2 coins), Emberorb Elemental (housepet, 3 coins), Golden Flame Brazier (2 coins), Golden Flame Chandelier (4 coins), Lavastorm Coalbin (2 coins), Petamorph Wand: Pyre Elemental (3 coins), Smoking Stump (2 coins), Spilled Lavastorm Coalbin (2 coins). Basically, everything but the mount and the building blocks.

 

Achievement

 

 

Destroy 25 of the various fire elemental types that will attack you near the celebration bonfires, and you will complete the Tempered by Flame hidden achievement and earn the suffix title ", the Scorched."

 

A Closer Look?

 

Ocarinah has put together short and long walkthroughs, giving you a closer look at the furniture, scaling, etc.: Short Item Preview and Full Version Scorched Sky Preview. Thanks, ma'am!

 

We have a small quest tracker from Casdoe of Maj'Dul for tracking the achievement, quests and collection for your alts. (We know some of you completionists out there will want to do fireworks in more than one city for your quest count!) Scorched Sky quest tracker in XLS form and there is also a PDF version..

 

A huge thanks to those who help to nail information down and test various parts of new content. Test server, and the game, are better for having you folks in it! <3
