THE GRANKERS ARE ON THE LOOSE!

Retrieve the lost presents and grab yourself a reward!

Running: 11/12/2019 to 8/1/2020

A long time ago, the Grankers helped the Shugos bring gifts to people who were lonely every year at Solorius. Piles of packages were tied to the Grankers' tackle. The Grankers never complained though, they carried this heavy load for the Shugos.

But then one winter's day, just as a snowstorm was gathering, a Granker broke free of its tackle. He kicked about, fled and took the presents with it that were destined for Daevas in need. From that day, he called himself the 'Red Nose Granker King'.

This year, the Grankers are wandering through Daeva and Lakrum – this is the Daevas' chance to get back their valuable gifts.

Set off on a treasure hunt to chase down the Grankers and their king. Enticing rewards are waiting for you, like the Ultimate Etium, the [Event] Ultimate PvE Enchantment Stone and the [Event] Granker Equipment Chest!

Treasure hunt basics

You can get all the details about the Granker hunt from Gluttonous Golden Saam in Sanctum or Greedy Golden Saam in Pandaemonium.

Find the treasure!

Treasure Maps:
You won't find any treasure without a Treasure Map! The treasure is well hidden – you won't find anything more than heaps of Grankers without the [Event] Torn Granker Treasure Map.

How do get the coveted Treasure Maps:

  • Log in each day and receive 1 Treasure Map (max. 12 per day).
  • Complete various missions for Lugbug.
  • Hunt Red Nose Grankers and with any luck they might drop a Treasure Map.

Combine 10 Treasure Maps and you'll receive the [Event] Unknown Granker Treasure Map.

Help from archaeologists:
The archaeologist Ionion in Stellusia (Dumaha) will help you study the Treasure Maps and then give you the [Event] Bundle of Granker Treasure Maps.
This bundle contains various grades of Treasure Maps (common, ancient, legendary, ultimate and special) that will challenge you with a puzzle. Solve it to find the treasure (the archaeologist's books will definitely help you here).

Track down the treasure:
Once you've solved the puzzle, you'll find the treasure's secret location in Dumaha. Are you in the right place? Great, then right-click on the map and the treasure will reveal itself.

Open the treasure!

A treasure chest is only a proper treasure chest if it's locked! That means you need the right key:

  • During the event weekend you can get 1x [Event] Bundle of Granker Treasure Chest Keys per account from the AION shop for free!

In Dumaha, you can buy keys with Kinah:

  • Doaranerk, the former Lockbuster in Stellusia, has a decent number of keys among their wares.
  • Solorurerk, the black market trader, has even more keys you can buy and also offers a 25% discount. You must have conquered the 9th, 10th and 11th altars beforehand, however.

Hunt Grankers!

The Red Nose Grankers don't give up their Granker Treasure Chests so easily: defeat them and get [Event] Red Nose Granker Horn as a reward.

The antler expert Bakaki in Stellusia will give you special event skills in return for the horns. (You can purchase up to 10 skills per day. They can only be used on certain types of opponents and are limited to certain areas.)

The event skills are:

  • [Event] [Skill Orb] Captivity
  • [Event] [Skill Orb] Curse of Roots
  • [Event] [Skill Orb] Frenzy
  • [Event] [Skill Orb] Aether's Hold
  • [Event] [Skill Orb] Frost Barrier
  • [Event] [Skill Orb] Eliminate Annoying Drakies


Down with the king!

The Red Nose Granker King is mad that the Daevas are after the treasure. You run into him 2x daily at 9:30 PM and 11 PM in the eastern part of the Suhara Desert. We recommend 48 players in order to defeat his majesty (he really is raging mad!).

Grab more free items!

As well as the [Event] Torn Granker Treasure Map you get additional free items when you log in daily:

  • You receive an [Event] Ancient Granker Treasure Map Chest 1x daily for 3 hours.
  • You receive an [Event] Legendary Granker Treasure Map Chest 1x daily for 6 hours.
  • You receive an [Event] Bundle of Granker Treasure Chest Keys 1x daily for 4 hours as well as an additional bundle for 4 hours.
  • For 5 hours you receive an [Event] Mysterious Legendary Transformation Contract Fragment. You can combine 20 of these with the [Event] Legendary Transformation Contract Alchemy Reagent (free 1x per account in the AION shop) to craft an [Event] Legendary Transformation Contract (10 types) (7 days).

Rewards

You can find a list of rewards here.

Please note: All event items will be removed from the game one week after the end of the event.
