Mythical Music Event

Event: January 17 – February 7
Redemption Period: January 17 – March 21

What’s a celebration without music? This 2nd Anniversary Festival invites you and your friends to go full audiophile and collect Music Box Cylinders to keep those beats thumping. Complete the Daily Challenge to receive a Music Box Cylinder, which can be turned in once per day to Celesta in Jadestone Village for a Completed Music Box. Open a Completed Music Box and you’ll receive some guaranteed rewards like the 2nd Anniversary Coin, as well as a shot at rarer materials like Moonstone Crystals, a Sacred Crystal Bundle, Elysian Crystals, and more.

Take your 2nd Anniversary Coins and head to the Dragon Express to purchase the limited-time Purity costume, 2nd Anniversary Cake Hat, and Candle Glasses available through the Redemption Period.

Purity & Anniversary Adornments

 

Realmrift Supply Chain

Event: January 17 – February 7
Redemption Period: January 17 – March 21

Relive Blade & Soul’s launch by returning to a challenging limited-time special event version of Blackram Supply Chain. Characters over level 50 can enter an updated version of this classic, and collect special daily rewards. This isn’t going to be as easy as other event dungeons, so be sure to come prepared.

Complete the prerequisite letter quest “A Letter from Nowhere” to gain access to a Daily Quest, that once completed will provide a Corsair’s Gift Box. Open the gift box for guaranteed and rare rewards, including the Corsair’s Comb—a currency that can be spent in the Dragon Express during the Redemption Period to obtain a number of cosmetic rewards.

  • Pirate Princess
  • Gangplank Style
  • Custom Gangplank Style
  • Red Gangplank Style
  • Poharan’s Eyepatch
  • Blackram Officer Uniform

The dynamic quest “The Other Poharan” also provides a Corsair’s Comb and 3 Fortune Potions each time, so that’s a good way to subsidize your Daily Quest gains. Also keep a lookout for the special Realmrift Supply Chain Soul Shield Chest which drops from each of the dungeon’s bosses, and contains a Sacred Longgui, Raven, or Beluga Soul Shield when opened.

Prefer to spend your time on progressing your character and not collecting costumes? Throughout the Redemption Period you’ll also gain access to special event Transmutation recipes. Make a Premier Hongmoon XP Charm by Transmuting 50 Corsair’s Combs, a Special Hongmoon XP Charm, and 20 gold. You can also make a Pentagonal Obsidian with a Special Square Obsidian of the corresponding element, 60 Corsair’s Combs, and 20 gold.

Merchant of Wonders

As we said before, the Realmrift Supply Chain is a challenging event dungeon, and so for completing it we’ve sweetened the pot a bit. When completing Realmrift Supply Chain, there’s a 100% chance to encounter the Merchant of Wonders, who will offer you a chance at everything available through the event, and more. Be sure to stick around and check out what he has to offer after each run.
