The Summer Solstice Celebration 2018 was an event that ran its course through latter half of the month of June until the 4th of July and is the sixth such event of its kind. This year's theme was "corruption". MORE PENDING.

Pre-event

Traps were introduced just before the event and were featured in a few of the event areas.

Schedule

Updates took place each Saturday during the event which lasted from June 3 to July 1. There were four Planes of Light event areas in total, with the first two opening at the start of the event. The event areas were independent of one another and their quests could be completed in any order. They were also single player autolevelling areas (beginning at level 5) and thus could be completed players of any level.

Date Summary
June 15 Act 1 of the main story began. Both versions of the Puzzlewood were opened. Draak released the Rolling Wilds, Crepuscula, a re-worked area from last year's summer event.
June 23 Act 2 of the main story was released.
June 29 Act 3 of the main story was released.

Story

Current Event Information
------------------------------------------------------------------
The sixth annual Summer Solstice Celebration has begun!

The main event involving the Church of Taran can be started by typing
'event start 140'.  It is appropriate for players of all levels. Although
the event areas refer to actual places within the game, you can only access
event zones via the 'event start' command.

Due to popular demand, not one but TWO versions of the Puzzlewood Forest
are available for play!  One is a high level group area with waves of
monsters of increasing strength called "Shooting the Curl", and the other
is a single player autolevelling area called "Endless Waltz". 

To complete the "Shooting the Curl" challenge, you must survive 41 waves of
monsters.  They need not be consecutive, but if a "Shooting the Curl"
instance washes, then the waves will restart at Wave 0 in any new instance.
You receive credit for slaying monsters that are of equal or greater wave
than the quest you're currently working toward.  For example, if you are
working on Wave 2 (as indicated in your 'quests' command) and join a group
that is working on Wave 10, then you will receive credit for Wave 2.

For the "Endless Waltz" version of the Puzzlewood,  you must defeat 1500
monsters.  Monsters in the "Endless Waltz" area will autolevel to be a
challenge for your level but will not increase in strength (unless you
level up).  You can leave the area and start a new instance at will, and
will pick up where you left off in the monster death count.

The final quest of each Puzzlewood area will yield a ring of endless
possibilities, an item that will scale to your level and can be randomized
on demand.
