Island of Solitude is a limited event ranging from August 4, 2021 - August 17, 2021. In this event, the heroes will come to a remote island and start a survival challenge. Players need to manage their heroes' Stamina for fighting, fishing, farming, ship repair, and exploration. As the number of days survived increases, the hero camp will also welcome a number of uninvited guests from whom they will get rewards for fighting.

Players can complete tasks to obtain Survival Tokens. Accumulating these points unlocks Mehira's summer skin: Summer's Desire.

There is 1 crystal chest and 83 gold chests to collect.

Background

A peculiar and ghastly ocean anomaly has caused the valiant heroes to become stranded upon the Island of Solitude.

With no way of contacting civilization, the heroes find themselves on a peculiar island all alone, or so they think. A shortage of supplies, hidden enemies, and disaster after disaster striking the heroes has left them all at their wits' end. The heroes know that if they are to survive, they must cultivate fruit and catch fish, these things are paramount to survival. Only by having the bare necessities of survival, can they then turn their focus towards repairing their wrecked ship and returning home.

However, a plot is brewing, and the hero's shall be tested in ways they never thought possible...

Guide

  • Acquire an abundance of rewards by exploring the Island of Solitude during the event period.
  • A player's Martial Rating is used to participate in this event. Heroes shall retain their ascension tier, and every hero’s level is set to 240. A hero’s level may be increased by a number that is based upon the Resonating Crystal's level.
  • During the event, all hero gear (including unadorned parts) is Mythic T1 and include Faction Bonuses but are un-enhanced. If a hero is already equipping Mythic T3 gear, their Hero Bonuses will be retained.
  • The strength of enemies is based upon each player’s own strength. Enemies’ strength levels will not change during the event.
  • Some actions on the Island of Solitude will expend Heroes’ Stamina. Heroes within Troops will automatically recover stamina.
  • Swapping heroes within ‘Troops’ will not expend any Stamina.
  • After each battle on the Island of Solitude has been concluded, the health and energy levels for enemies will not be reset.
  • Surplus items will be automatically refunded after the event according to the price stated in the description.
  • There are 20 hero slots. These slots will automatically be filled with the players 20 strongest heroes, however, the player can change out heroes as needed by tapping the slot and selecting the new hero they want to place into it.

Characters

Overview

Stamina

Heroes will burn stamina as they complete activities on the island. Each hero will start at 20 stamina, and can recover 20 stamina per day.

The amount of stamina is fixed per slot, meaning that you can freely switch a hero into a different slot in order for them to gain the stamina of that slot. For example, a Nemora in a slot with 12 stamina can be swapped with a Belinda in a slot with 20 stamina. At the end of the swap, Nemora will have 20 stamina while Belinda will have 12.

Stamina Swap 1.jpg Stamina Swap 2.jpg

This is an effective manner of getting more use out of specific heroes.

The table below details how much stamina will be burnt per each activity:

Activity Cost
Farming 1 Stamina per Hour
Fishing 1 Stamina per Hour
Ship Repairs 1 Stamina per Hour
Removing Vines 8 Stamina
Battling Enemies 8 Stamina

Floating Bottles

Bottles will wash up near the shore daily for players to collect. In doing so, the player will be able to collect a small amount of supplies and read island logs.

The table below details some of the floating bottles:

Title Description Supplies
Day 1 To whomever finds this message, I beseech you give this letter to the monks of the Lightbearer Temple. Our party has been stranded on a desolate island following an accident, our ship is wrecked. We are approximately midway along the planned route, we request immediate help be sent. Beware, the ocean is tumultuous, so please take the greatest of care. Diamonds x100

Rare Chaos Fish x1

Day 1 It seems another person had fallen afoul of this island, a strange fellow by the name of Arthur. He was dressed like no man I'd ever before seen, quite peculiar. Surely encountering a stranger on a remote island would give cause to be wary, yet the Divine Light senses no ill, so perhaps we should give him the benefit of the doubt? Diamonds x100

Rare Lowi Berries x1

Day 1 The seas are still choppy. Even if we fixed the ship, we'd be wrecked again before long. The waves need to be soothed, otherwise we can't make our return to the mainland. Diamonds x100

Rare Zargal Fish x1

Day 1 Divine Light above! The military marching training I had as a teenager proved useful! I built a simple camp with materials I found on the island. Whilst not a defensive fortress, it is adequate for protecting us from the sun and wind. Diamonds x100

Rare Maryx Fish x1

Day 2 The person's responsible for Gorvo's injuries truly resembled Seirus, yet, was it really Seirus? I've read in ancient tomes of Hypogean capable of bewitching the mind, poisoning a person's thoughts with false visions. It is imperative we be wary of such possibilities. 100k gold

Rare Zargal Fish x1

Day 3 Following the second attack, the atmosphere has soured further. Paranoia is overwhelming everyone, moment by moment. This cannot be allowed to continue, we must find the enemy and bring this to an end! 100k gold

Rare Mist Melon x1

Day 4 I have learned many things from the Light, but the most important thing is not to do what is right, but what is righteous. I will continue to believe in every one of my friends, including Belinda. Hero's Essence x100

Elite Thorny Rambutan Fruit x1

Day 4 The only thing I need to do is keep the island supplied with food. Food is the minimum supply we need for survival. We cannot fight the enemy on an empty stomach. Hero's Essence x100

Elite Maryx Fish x1

Day 4 I find it strange that I have found traces of human activity on the island, but I have not seen anyone except for ourselves, not even a body. Hero's Essence x100

Elite Zargal Fish x1

Day 5 Gorvo said the visions we encountered at sea do not come from the sea itself, but from a much more fervent and violent power. Could this power have something to do with the island's volcanoes? I've heard about volcanoes causing tsunamis, could this be the same thing? I have been feeling somewhat unwell, I wonder if it had anything to do with the argument outside. Elite Soulstones x10

Elite Chaos Fish x1

Day 6 Before falling into a trance, Gorvo had said that the root cause of the shipwreck was not the ocean itself, but the volcanic eruptions and the occurrence of maritime anomalies. Common Scroll x1

Elite Zargal Fish x1

Day 6 Now that the repair of the hull is nearing completion, we have been supervising each other in groups of three to minimize the chances of the enemy damaging the hull. When the restoration work is complete, we'll be able to leave this deserted island, but until then... We must first understand the cause of the ocean vision, or we will only fail again. Common Scroll x1

Transcript

[Opening Animatic]

Our tale begins with an expedition. Heroes from all corners of the world banded together to explore a land risen from the abyss...

Unbeknownst to our adventurers, the seeds of failure had already been sown. One amongst them was a greater threat than any could've known...

A malice widened an already deepening rift between the heroes. With their ship destroyed, a lost island was their only hope. But the real test has just begun.

[Start of Event]

Solise: ... What is this place? What happened?

Gorvo: We were shipwrecked. This remote island is our new home for now.

Lucius: There's ship debris on the beach, we'd best investigate.

Belinda: The hull is ruined, there's no way we could piece this together and get back out to sea.

Gorvo: I can.

Belinda: ...Only by repairing the ship's hull can we guarantee everyone's safety.

[Approach Camp]

Lucius: I used some of the decking from the wreckage to build a simple camp. This is where everyone will stay, it'll be easier to assign tasks to everyone this way.

[Begin farming]

Lucius: It'll take some time to repair the ship. The anomaly at sea doesn't appear to be subsiding. If we want to survive, we'd better cultivate our own food.

Solise: There are all sorts of plants on the island, I'm sure we can find some fruits.

[Collect first floating bottle]

Vurk: That looks like small bottles floating in the ocean, they seem to contain supplies.

Belinda: A drifting bottle. People would put messages in these and cast them out to sea. I've conveniently just picked up a pen and paper from the wreckage, perhaps we can use our own drifting bottle to send word for help?

Vurk: It's likely that the bottles will just wash back up on this shore again.

[Collect distant chest]

Solise: Look! A chest, floating in the sea!

Gorvo: It must have been on of the chests in the ship's cabin. Let's open it and see what's inside.

Solise: There seems to be more chests out at sea.

Gorvo: I can swim over and investigate, they probably have much-needed supplies inside.

[Begin fishing]

Vurk: I can't live on leaves! I need some meat, too!

Antandra: Perhaps we can try our hand at fishing, that'll give us strength!

[Encounter vines]

Vurk: What's with all the vines on this stupid island?! Setting traps is such a pain!

Antandra: We need to clear these vines to explore more of the island.

[Challenge Mind-Caged Seirus]

Seirus: What's the matter Gorvo, are you so surprised?

Gorvo: My dear friend, why are you on this island? Was it you who sunk the ship?

Belinda: Gorvo has been ambushed! Quickly, help!

[Enter volcanic area]

Arthur: This is the cause of all our problems. The mysterious sea anomaly and the in-fighting among ourselves. This is where it ends.

[Challenge Mind-Caged Belinda]

Lucius: Huh... Why are there two... Belindas?

Arthur: We can be certain of one thing, our enemy has the power to impersonate people. He used the method to trick and deceive us, with the hopes of us turning on each other.

Belinda One: Lucius, follow the Light's guidance.

Belinda Two: My dear Lucius, do you have the heart to harm me?

[Challenge Mind-Caged Solise]

Solise: So, what do you think of that huh? How's my skill?

Vurk: Solise dared put poison in the food? Does she have a death wish?

Belinda: Don't do anything rash. The enemy has the power to shapeshift, it's trying to turn us against on another.

Vurk: How do I know you're not the shapeshifter?

[Challenge Mind-Cager Mehira]

Arthur: Gotcha!

Mehira: I let you. I was getting bored of you all anyway. Oh how easily you are all provoked, how eager you are to indulge yourselves. Pathetic. Although you still hadn't fully given into your vices, you made me more powerful than I could have imagined.

Antandra: Face me, coward!

Event Teaser

Teaser Transcript

"An exciting voyage into the unknown, a thrilling expedition. At least, it should’ve been.

But we found ourselves shipwrecked, stranded on a remote island.

Now the real nightmare begins.

A Hypogean is among us.

It has cleverly masked its identity, disguised as one of us.

It messes with our minds, corrupts our thoughts, leading us to our destruction.

All trust is gone, suspicion is rife.

Baseless accusations are at every turn.

Now, a choice must be made.

I’ve placed all hope in you.

Go now, strike, and reverse the tide!"
