With August in full swing, we could not let you all go without enjoying our annual Summer Event! And it's bigger than ever before! With more gameplay, more rewards and more of everything, this year will be the greatest one yet! The Treasure Hunting part of the event will be making its grand return this year. This year's event is jam-packed full of new rewards and challenges. See below for more details!

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!

  • 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!

For those participating in the Fast 5 NPC finder competition throughout the Amazing Summer Race event, this year's prize is a combination of those we used in previous years as we don't want you all to miss out on these awesome costumes. It's the Water Mastery Costume OR Rune Helm Costume! Both are account-bound and if you make it to the Fast 5, you can choose which of the two you want!

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!

For starters, this year you can do up to four missions per character. No longer do you have to switch characters after every mission completed! Remember, you can still do a maximum of four missions per round in total!!

Regions

  • Kordt Forest: The 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 returning game 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! Places where people in the map have found treasures will be marked in green on the minimap! On top of that, every now and then Captain TamTam will give you a hint of a treasure's location, marked in red and you will see some special effect indicators now and then that signal where a treasure might be found.

This year we've made several improvements to the game and improved the rewards as well, so we hope you will enjoy the return of this game, yarrr!

If you're really lucky while treasure hunting, you may even find 1 of 2 never before seen, unique weapons, that can only be obtained during the hunt! They may look like random miscellaneous litter initially, but are actually equipable items! These are as follows in the below spoiler:

Weekly Rare Treasure Hunts

Just like last time, we will have something special added to the Treasure Hunting event! Once 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! There are a total of 6 weeks where this special event will be held, so be sure to get looking for the treasure map pieces!

Returning from previous years! 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 special type of MvP that uses unique mechanics not seen elsewhere!

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 where the octopus resides! Finding the keys will not be easy. You can obtain them by participating in the Amazing Summer Race and Treasure Hunting! Various stages of the event may reward you with this unique key. Too lazy to race around? 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 racing efforts!

Rewards

Defeating Akkorokamui can occasionally reward you with amazing gears, exclusive to this content! He will drop the following exclusive equipment:

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!
