About the Event

The Skyborne Spectacle Raid Event begins on 2018/1/31 14:00 UST and lasts until 2018/2/12 13:59 UST. During this event, one can use Co-op Play to fight against the Water raid boss, Valfarre!

For tips on defeating Valfarre, check out the Valfarre: Battle Strategy Guide.

This Raid event features a new story and pits players against a series of maps culminating with a challenging 16-man Raid Battle. There are many rewards to be obtained, notably including a new 4★ Adventurer, 4★ Wyrmprint and a 5★ Dragon!

Efficiency Tips

  • Farming only the Expert and Special raid boss modes will lead to uneven Emblem earnings. The best way of collecting each type of Emblem is as follows:

    • Bronze: Use Stamina to farm Aquatic Cyclops Assault on Expert.

    • Silver: Use Getherwings to farm Valfarre Clash: Standard

    • Gold: Use Getherwings to farm Valfarre Clash: Expert, and clear Valfarre Clash: Special as often as possible.

  • If playing the event lightly, it’s best to reset the Blazon Rewards upon pulling a copy of Peng Lai.

  • Those playing the event heavily though should consider clearing the boxes completely for Dragonfruit and crafting materials.

  • Using Su Fang in quests unrelated to the event (such as daily maps) will still build up his friendship, so those short on resources may wish to skip building him.

  • Make sure to use up the Blazon Summons! The box will stay open for a little while after the event period.

Important Information

  • During raid battles, players will only recover 25% of the usual amount of HP from certain skills and abilities.

  • Blazons, Emblems, or Otherworld Fragments obtained in this event cannot be used in future events.

Event Currencies

There are two main currencies: Peregrine Blazons and Emblems.

Peregrine Blazons

Peregrine Blazons are earned through completing Boss Battle: Aquatic Cyclops Assault and Raid Battle: Valfarre Clash. They can be used in Blazon Summon, which grants a wide variety of rewards from a continually depleting pool. Once Peng Lai has been earned from a Blazon Summon, the pool can be refreshed which enables all rewards to be obtainable again.

Blazons are earned through all difficulties of Valfarre Clash and Aquatic Cyclops Assault.

Emblems

Emblems come in three varieties: Bronze, Silver, and Gold.As more types of each emblem are earned, more rewards are unlocked along their respective tracks.

Notable Rewards

Su Fang

The event unit is Su Fang, a 4★ Wind-attuned Dagger user. He has Therion’s Bane to boost damage against Valfarre during the raid battle, and is otherwise a great damage dealing Adventurer. Like all free raid units released so far, he lacks +100% Affliction Resist, but this can be patched up by equipping him with a fully unbound copy of Dragon Dance.

Upon starting the event Su Fang will join as a Temporary Character, someone who appears in your collection but won't stay past the event. To keep him for good, take him along in quests-- this will raise his Friendship Level. Once his Friendship level maxes out at 500, Su Fang will become playable permanently. 

Peng Lai

Peng Lai is a 5★ Water Dragon who boosts HP by +20/30%. He’s a fantastic F2P Dragon perfect for healers, and his Skill inflicts the deadly Bog affliction on enemies. A total of five copies of Peng Lai can be obtained, enough to fully unbind him-- four through Blazon Summons, and one from collecting 100 Silver Emblems.

Dragon Dance

This Wyrmprint grants 40/50% Bog Resistance, making it a great choice for Adventurers without 100% Bog Resistance. There is no limit to how many can be obtained, and they are earned through the following:

  • Once all the story quests have been cleared.

  • Once 6 or 120 Bronze Emblems have been earned

  • Once 20, 280 or 420 Silver Emblems have been earned.

  • As a reward through Blazon Summons

When clearing the Raid Battle, players can destroy the tail to claim a large number of Blazons as a rewards. There is also a small chance for a Golden Fragment to drop. Ten Golden Fragments can be combined to form a Golden Key, which is used to unbind a five star Wyrmprint by one stage.

Other

Other notable rewards include:

  • 11x Summon Vouchers.

  • 4x Knights Testament and 1x Champions Testament

  • 4x Twinkling Sand

  • 3x Sunlight Ore

  • Large amounts of Eldwater, Rupies, and Mana.

  • Abundant Ripe Dragonfruits
