Event time: Mar 2nd, 2023 at 20:00 - Mar 15th, 2023 at 20:00 (UTC)

Event Rules:

1. By completing Daily Quests, players can obtain Scroll Fragments of Akos and have an additional chance to randomly obtain one of the rewards: Tae, Spectral Silk, Legendary Outfit, Legendary Accessory Gift and Regular Treasure Choice Gift.

2. There are 4 Scrolls in total, each can be restored by collecting 4 Scroll Fragments. Only when Scroll I and II are restored can players continue to restore Scroll III and IV. You can claim rewards by unlocking the 4 Scrolls. Some rewards will be available after the new version, so stay tuned.

3. Each day, you can help a player obtain a Scroll Fragment (by selecting "Share Scroll Fragment" in friends list). You won't consume your Scroll Fragments by doing so. However, each player can receive only one Scroll Fragment per day.

4. After the event ends, you can still claim rewards on the event page within the remaining time. But you can no longer complete Quests nor share Scroll Fragments. Once the time for claiming rewards runs out, the expired Scroll Fragments can be converted into 160 Tae each in the Inventory.
