Hello there Celeste players! The Summer Event is finally here.
Once you update your game, go to your Empire Store in your Capital City and find all the new quests for the event, as well all the good stuff we had from last year!
You can find every detail regarding what's new in the event in the attached graphics! We hope that you all have lots of fun playing with friends during the event.
So let's break down the details of the event in a question-based list:
1. How do I access the special event content?
2. What are the new contents available in the event?
Note that you need to be at least Level 10 to access the Event content.
- New mini-game style Quests and a very difficult Legendary Quest, with awesome rewards.
- New PvP Quests with AWESOME rewards.
- Gear, Vanity Gear and Capital City decoration from last year: The Summer Vanity Set and The Temple of Apophis Capital City building, entirely new and exclusive to Celeste.
- A new Legendary Building: Library of Horus - For the first time ever, you will be able to play previous years' Legendary Quests from the Summer Event after the event is over, once you build this building.
- Big upgrades to Sparta and Crete Chests and Large Chests. (This will continue on after the Event is over, too.)3. Where do I find the new Quests?
In the City of Rhakotis.
4. Where can I get the new PvP Quests? Anything new for PvP players?
In Sparta. Remember that you need to first accept the "City of the Sun God" first. Refer to the guide above to see how you can do that.
In addition, the contents inside Spartan Chests and Spartan Large Chests have been improved and you will find much better loot in them. This applies to Crete Chests and Crete Large Chests as well!
5. Can I get every event Item playing only PvP or only PvE?
Yes! Everything is obtainable by playing either mode.
(PF2K's Personal Note: Play PvP guys. PvP mode best mode!!!)
6. What are Summer Points, what can I get with them and where do I spend them?
Summer Points are the special currency of the Summer Event. You can use them to buy Vanity Gear, Capital City Decoration, Consumables, in addition to exclusive Gear pieces all at the City of Rhakotis Store.
7. What are the Global Quests?
They are quests that can be done in any game mode and inside any quest. They include, but are not limited to, the following types of quests:
- Play Repeatable, Elite or Legendary Quests
- Play Co-op Quests with your friends
- Play PvP matches for a certain amount of time (Daily and Weekly Quests)
- Hunt various animals in Quests
- Defeat special treasure guardians (Guardians of the Solstice)
- Exchange materials for Summer Points
8. What is the Library of Horus?
For the first time ever in Age of Empires Online history, you will be able to play previous years' Legendary Quests from the Summer Event after the Summer Event is over. All you need to do is obtain one of these blueprints (found at the Rhakotis Store) and build it in your Capital City. Once the Summer Event is over, you will see it.
(Remember that you will need one of these Buildings for each of your civilizations if you want to play them on all of your civs!)
9. How long will the event last?
The Event is planned to be 5-weeks long. There has been a timer added to the sidebar on the Forums with a countdown, indicating how long you will have to play the Summer Event.
