    Hello there Celeste players! Here you can find the details of the upcoming Summer Event for this year, going live on July 26th, 00:01 UTC!

    This year, we are bringing back most of the fan-favorite content as well from previous years, as well as all-new gear!

    [​IMG]
    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?

    =================================
    Note that you need to be at least Level 10 to access the Event content.

    • Minigame Quests and Legendary Quests.
    • New PvP Quests with AWESOME rewards.
    • Gear, Vanity Gear and Capital City decoration from previous years: The Summer Vanity Set and The Temple of Apophis Capital City building, entirely new and exclusive to Celeste.
    • An Event-exclusive Legendary Building: Library of Horus - allowing you to play previous years' Legendary Quests from the Summer Event after the event is over, once you build this building.

    3. Where do I find the new Quests?
    In the City of Rhakotis.

    4. Where can I get the new PvP Quests? Anything special for PvP players?

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    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.

    We are a small community and we are all here to have fun. Please do not ruin the gameplay experience of other players by going AFK in Sparta games, or by doing matchfixing and other abusive behavior. Thank you for helping us keep the Sparta Ladder a fun experience for everyone.


    If you see anyone going AFK in Sparta or showing any kind of abusive behavior, please report them to one of our moderators at our Discord Server.


    We monitor Sparta activity very closely and will deal with exploiters promptly. This is especially true during Events.

    ==

    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?

    [​IMG]

    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. How long will the event last?

    The Event is planned to be 5-weeks long starting on July 26th, 00:01 UTC and will end on August 31st, 00:01UTC. 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.

    ==
    9. Anything else new?

    Some of you may know this already, but we have recently brought back the Visit Other Players' Capital Cities feature! While there are some small bugs left to fix, the feature is back for the most part and functions properly. Try it out!

    All you need to do to visit someone else's capital city is type in "/visit [playername]" in the in-game chat (without the quotation marks). Psychosaurus made a small video showcasing this feature that you can find HERE.

    [​IMG]

    We will soon be hosting Capital City Decoration Contests with lots of awesome in-game prizes, stay tuned!


    Thanks for reading, and we look forward to seeing you in-game for the Event! Please let us know your thoughts and questions below.

    All current and future content will stay 100% free and accessible to everyone.

      Ah, there will be no unique log-in rewards for the Summer Event, like there was for the Winter Event? I felt that went pretty well for the Winter Event.

      If I could make a suggestion for Ishtar's Divine Wine:

      I feel that Ishtar would be quite better received if the speed bonus was increased to 4.4%, matching that of Hood of Weyland/Zahhak Amulet, and if the Train Time bonus was reduced to 4.7%, matching that of an average Blessed Food of Athens. With this, it would be a better alternative to Weyland/Zahhak for Caravans, Ox Carts, and Engineers, and would be a great bridging item for players who cannot afford 10 Delian Archon Hoods - And should Delian Archon Hood become unavailable in the future, then Ishtar becomes an extremely strong contender for #1 laborer tool spot, next to the Zahhak Amulet for non-villager units

      That’s going to be unique to the Winter Event. It’s our little spin on the ancient and widespread season of giving.

      Hmm... If I equip the new Ashur's Arrow to the Roman Enneris, it will increase the Age4 anti-building multipliers too or just add the bonus vs building to the basic "Age3 arrow attack"? I don't know these separate attacks benefits from both arrow and throwing arm gears or they are separated too.

      It will correctly apply to all of its attacks (and also the Norse Fortress' Burning Pitch attack). :)

      Love the new items, great to see more of the specialisation options and boat items!

      Ishtars Divine wine will be a solid choice for laborer gear, I've updated my calculation on https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet...o61pzQyDTPILsaH6f_XTx-fXo/edit#gid=1801545957 in case anyone is interested. The short summary is that you give up tiny amount of early game effectiveness for increased effectiveness later in game. So villager laborer choices are:
      Gerda to front load your savings
      Goibniu for max savings but is spread out over the timeframe you are building villagers (Nebuchadnezzar is almost identical effect, just prettier)
      Ishtars to push a little of the Goibnius savings into the end game.

      Why aren't there standard/elite difficulty quests for the event?

      There are. Up and to the left of the main quest giver, there's another quest giver who has a number of standard difficulty mini-game quests, along with a single standard/elite quest. If you want mats over points, they are also worth doing over the legendary quests - Doing all the quests will give 8 mats total and takes ~40 minutes total once you figure out the strats for each quest

      Currently, it's only possible to get items introduced last year via the point store. No other items are avaiable through the event.
