Hi Shards Fans! It's event time!
A league of Explorers have set up their base camp in the event zone and invited you to come along while they investigate a Desert shard that has drifted nearby.
Venture through the various regions collecting items for all the Explorers' quests to turn in for Explorer League Credits to buy a selection of quest or reward items from the Quartermaster.
When you finish a quest, you can warp back to the camp to turn it in to the relevant character by clicking on the quest in the tracker on the left of the screen.
Talk to the expedition leader to send supplies you've gathered through the gate and reset the repeatable quests to complete them again. This ability is available every 4 hours if you've turned in a quest that completes from breakable drops.
Each region resets every 8 hours, or you can buy a Monster Lure or use Shardium to reset a region if you're looking to continue collecting everything right away.
If you happen to close the game while you're in the event, you'll return to the event region where you last were.
And keep your eyes open for possible secrets the shards could hold.
Plus, we've added a map to make traveling to the various regions easier!
