Once a year, a chaotic and dangerous time comes to Adan. On the Night of the Great Dragons, guardians of our world submerge into a deep sleep and undead creatures invade the realm of the living.
While common folk follow the tradition by dressing in scary costumes, dancing, and laughing to show they're not afraid of the evil spirits, warriors work hard lighting the lanterns, burning effigies, intimidating their opponents with horrifying ghosts and, of course, slaying undead monsters to acquire the main ritual lamp, Archylantern of Awakening, which is required to awaken the Great Dragons from their slumber.
Complete Quests of the charming Ani-Dahlia to receive Gift Pumpkins that contain characteristic-increasing holiday candy as well as grant you a chance to obtain a special weapon – the Broom. Players who obtain the Archylantern, will additionally receive a unique Pumpkin Helm.

For millenia, the mysterious Maze of Eternity that fountains and brims with magical energy remained the biggest and most-protected secret of the people of Khateram. The alien race of Shivari destroyed Khateram a thousand years ago but was eventually forced to retreat to their homeworld, unable to overcome the protection of the Storm Towers. But as centuries passed, the magic of the Towers faded; and now Shivari are coming back, stronger than ever, to claim the Maze for themselves.
Warriors of level 50+ are the last line of defense against the Shivari and their undead minions. With Yshen Carr's help, they will have to craft special magical artifacts that allow entrance to the Maze of Eternity.
But think twice before you enter the gloomy tunnels of the Maze, for peace treaties that work on the surface mean nothing down there.
Maze of Eternity is the only place where the Undead Hunter Reputation can be earned. There are several ways to do so: by assembling the artifact that allows to teleport into the Maze, by completing the Collection of Shivari magical weapons, or by killing the enslaved monsters and their masters in the Maze.
The converted Dragon Arkahshul has faithfully served Shaab for many centuries, annihilating entire armies and bending free worlds to the will of the Dark Gods. And now, Tartu's turn has come. Today, at 20:00 Server Time, Arkahshul Conqueror of the Worlds will arrive in the Knossos Canyon to punish the disobedient world and turn the blooming continent of Tartui into a lifeless barren. But warlock Omnimach begs to differ. To ensure victory, Omnimach has infiltrated the minds of the subdued Defilers and summoned them to fight the defenders of Tartu once again.
Guardians of Adan, the Elder Dragons, have created an intricate Spell that reflects damage dealt to warriors of our world back on Arkahshul. And though Imperial soldiers will have to endure severe wounds, the more damage they take, the more punishment will the undefeated Dragon sustain. You hold the fate of Adan in your hands, warriors, and your actions now determine whether Adan stays free or becomes yet another trophy in the collection of the invincible Arkahshul.
Players of level 16 and higher can take part in the Invasion of Shaab.
The sickness has entered its final stage, Madness of Blight, and all the infected inhabitants of Tartu have turned into Defilers! Maximum Health and damage dealt by the servants of the Dark Gods are significantly higher that those of unafflicted warriors.

Nevertheless, warlock Omnimach encourages inhabitants of Tartu to fight Defilers whenever and wherever they can – converted warriors are no longer infectious. Each defeated monster will bring youDefender of Adan Reputation and Sparks of Abyss.
The stage will last until October 20th 12:00 Server Time. Players of level 16 and higher can participate in the Invasion of Shaab.
An epidemic of the Heat of Blight is raging on Tartu. More and more inhabitants of Adan become carriers of the mysterious sickness.

Enter the Portals, fight your way through the guards and bring Omnimach the following: Chill of Blight Tome, Heat of Blight Tome, and Blaze of Blight Tome. Beside the books, you'll have a chance to obtain Omnimach Writings as trophies. They can be used immediately to receive a 1-hour long Wizard's Trick effect that increases the damage from Striking Spells by 10% – or you can collect 6 Writings, purchase a Cover of Omnimach Chronicles in the Defender of Adan Shop, and create the Omnimach Chronicles that allow to summon the warlock into combat 3 times.
