Summer Event | Amazing Race, Treasure Hunting and More!

Recommended Posts

After the recently released TamTam's Tikibar it's finally time to roll out TalonRO's annual summer event, with this year more activities than ever before! No longer will our event be limited to the Amazing Summer Race and Cocktail making. This year we are introducing two brand new events which we are certain you will enjoy.

Are you ready for it? Let's begin!

The return of TalonRO's wildly popular Amazing Summer Race brings the action back to Port Malaya for a season of intense team fun! The Amazing Summer Race this year begins once again in Port Malaya at the World Race Center Headquarters.

Your journey begins by speaking with one of the World Quest Center staff members to begin the journey of the season. After registration, you'll need to find the person in each region who can start your quest after starting in Port Malaya. From there, this person will be hiding in one of four regions. Once they are located, you'll begin a quick quest.

Collect one of each special regional badge by performing these quests that takes place all over Midgard and beyond! Your goal is to eventually successfully complete one of each type of quest, and decide to turn those badges in for a prize or bet them all on a harder quest whose rewards will be even greater!

Let's start with all of the changes this year.

Summer Race Changes

  • This year's Summertime Box and Advanced Summertime Box have been refreshed to a new version as a distinct item from prior year's boxes. Many new rewards have been added to both the Basic and Pro Summertime Boxes.
    • This is to allow all players to have a fresh start this year earning new rewards, so everyone starts from the same place in this year's event!
  • NPC names and locations of various field agents have been moved and renamed as well to keep this year's Amazing Summer Race fresh and fun. Not as many have been changed as last year, however. After all, we are certain you guys will have a Guide up in no-time!
  • Added more rewards for players who are first to find the Amazing Race NPC of that round!
  • For those participating in the Fast 5 NPC finder competition throughout the Amazing Summer Race event, this year's prize is now the Water Mastery Costume (Bound)!

Rules for the Amazing Summer Race

  • USE ONLY ONE MASTER ACCOUNT FOR THE RACE 
    • Please remember: it is strictly forbidden to use more than one (1) master account to get badges. Using the master account of a friend or family member to get more badges is forbidden and can lead to a permanent ban!
  • BADGE EXCHANGE
    • All race badges will be account-bound - but if you're too heavy with one kind of badge and need one of a different type, you can exchange that with the Race Staff for three of an existing badge type!
       

Missions and Regions

The missions and regions of the Amazing Summer Race are many - so we want to make sure that you have a preview of what you're getting into before you embark upon the race!

Regions

  • Kordt ForestThe Kordt Forest is for all quests performed in a forest-type of area. You might find yourself deep within Mt. Mjolnir, or perhaps out roaming the Prontera Fields - just don't get lost in the woods!
  • Sograt Desert: The Sograt Desert areas aptly refer to any area which is primarily desert. Although the Sograt Desert is the largest desert in Midgard, it is by no means the only one. Be sure to bring lots of water on your journey!
  • Kokomo Tropics & Tundra: The Kokomo Tropics & Tundra are any collection of tropical or tundra areas around Midgard. While it might be tempting to bring along the summer suits and sunscreen, keep your eyes open when a quest is in this area!
  • Darmian Dungeons: The Darmian Dungeon region refer to all quests which take place in a dungeon. Don't worry: all of the dungeon quests will be in open-access dungeons...though safety is not guaranteed when venturing in here!

Missions

  • Monster Hunting: Monster hunting is a staple of the Amazing Race! On these quests, you'll need to defeat as many of a certain type of monster as you can!
  • Searching: If the regional Amazing Race staff member assigns you to a monster hunting quest, then you had better gear up for a quick run through of those monsters! You'll need to do so before the time is up as well!
  • Item Gathering: In these quests, your searching isn't done yet! You'll have to hunt across Midgard to find a special individual to complete this assignment.

This year we'd like to introduce a brand new addition to the TalonRO summer festivities: Treasure Hunting! Find Captain TamTam in Port Malaya together with his matey Sailor Squiggles. Here you can acquire your very own Digging Shovel.

The Event

Every few hours, similar to the Amazing Summer Race, Captain TamTam will invite you to hunt for his hidden treasures. He will pick a random map and will tell you in which part of the maps he's hidden various treasures. These can be items of lower value but also powerful and valuable treasures! Simply roam around the map and use the Digging Shovel to dig! On your minimap you can see the places you have dug already, marked in blue. Places where other people in the map have found treasures will be marked in green! On top of that, every now and then Captain TamTam will give you a hint of a treasure's location, marked in red.

Weekly Rare Treasure Hunts

In addition to the regular treasure hunting, we have introduced something even more wonderful! Every week, an exceptionally rare and valuable treasure will be hidden in the world of TalonRO. Where? Nobody knows! What's in it? Something very valuable, definitely worth your valuable time!

The only way you can find out its location is by finding the Treasure Map. You can do this by combining four unique pieces of the map that can be found every week by simply joining the Treasure Hunt events. Have you found all four unique pieces? Great! Bring them to Captain TamTam in Port Malaya and he will combine them into a real treasure map!

You can view these beautiful maps (as created by our amazing GM team) by clicking on them. There you will find hints about the treasure's location. They won't always be easy, so be sure to ask your friends for help! But be wary, once that week's treasure has been found, it will be gone forever! Each weekly treasure can only be found once!

 

octopus.png

Another brand new addition to the Summer Event is a unique high-end instance! Help Captain TamTam sail the seas once again in his ship by defeating an octopus believed to be the legendary Akkorokamui, in an instance available for up to 4~6 players, who is stopping TamTam from leaving the Malaya Docks. Akkorokamui is a new type of MvP that uses mechanics never before seen!

Goal

In order to defeat Akkorokamui you must defeat all of its legs so it can no longer defend itself. Prior to this, the main boss is completely invincible. All of Akkorokamui’s legs have different functions such as buffing/healing, ranged skills, magic skills, debuffs, status, and even physical attacks. It is up to you to decide which legs to take out in what order to figure out what the best strategy is for your team!

Joining

Not every player can jump into the fight with Akkorokamui. To enter, you must find a Mysterious Key and bring it to Captain TamTam. He will bring you to the evil octopus! Finding the keys will not be easy. You can obtain them by Treasure Hunting and occasionally while finding the Amazing Summer Race NPCs! Too lazy to dig for booty? Not a problem! The keys can be traded and vended. Find one from your local vendor and give it a shot without any of the digging effort!

Rewards

Defeating Akkorokamui can occasionally reward you with brand new, never before seen gears on TalonRO, exclusive to this content! He will drop a brand new Armor, Garment and Footgear, as well as other items!

Don't forget about this year's wonderful Summer Cocktails, either! Event Galapagos will be roaming about in special areas with ingredients to make wonderful summer cocktails - an array of which offer some special stat boosting effects (to say nothing of being refreshing on the beach, right?). This year we have a brand new cocktail for you to enjoy, too! Good luck earning and making some of these wonderful cocktails below:

Finally, let's not forget about an event that's already been running since the start of the month: TamTam's Tikibar! Thanks to our fun loving and beloved mascot, TamTam, we're serving up summery drinks (and prizes!) throughout the whole month of August. For more information on how to join, please check out our dedicated event topic!

 

Finally, summer's sunset eventually falls upon us - and so the Amazing Summer Race will run through September 21st at the end of the summer season. We hope that you enjoy the wonderful features of this year's Amazing Summer Race - and as always, happy gaming!
