Tencent is bringing on lots of holiday cheer this season with Alchemy Stars’ lineup of festivities. In particular, the Sands of Time event takes players on a journey through a new narrative, plus loads of in-game goodies up for grabs throughout the month. We’ve got the lowdown on everything you can expect, from limited edition characters to guaranteed recruits and more.
Limited-time event stages
The Sands of Time event includes the Northland Journey and the Trial of the Aurora stages, along with a Lake Mirror Codeword mini-game. Navigators can unlock these by clearing Main Stage 1-16. Action Points are consumed when challenging these stages – afterward, unused Action Points will be converted into Mistletoe. These can then be exchanged for lots of in-game goodies over at the limited-time event exchange store, Cedar Market.
In particular, the store contains 5-Star Aurorian Lola, Legendary Aurorian breakthrough materials, and more, and will only be open from December 23rd to January 13th. “Though time may pass without end, the past and the future will always be in your hands,” says Bethlehem.
Exclusive Aurorians during the event
Navigators can expect to score more characters during the event, such as the new 5-star Aurorian Lola and her Solamber exclusively from the Cedar Market. New 6-Star Aurorian Bethlehem can be acquired from the Queen of the North recruitment as a limited-edition character, while 5-Star Aurorian Robyn will be up for grabs during the daily login event.
In addition, an exciting new minimum guarantee mechanism has been added, letting players nab the Aurorians they want from the gacha pool. This includes exclusive recruitment, limited-time recruitment, and rotating recruitment. For instance, you can try to obtain the featured Aurorian you want as you would normally, but if you fail within two consecutive attempts, the next 6-star Aurorian will be the featured 6-star Aurorean.
Special gift packs, new outfits, and more
In celebration of the Sands of Time event and the game’s Half-Anniversary, Navigators can expect a special gift pack to thank everyone for their loyal support. The in-game store is also launching new outfits, such as the 6-Star Aurorian Victoria – Mirror Mirror and the 6-Star Aurorian Gronru – Naughty or Nice outfits.
If you’re eager to join in on all the festivities this season, you can download Alchemy Stars on the iOS App Store or on the Google Play Store for Android devices. It’s a free-to-play game with in-app purchases. You can also have a look at the official website to know more about the game.
