Events

Mega expansions in terms of expansion worlds, as well as historical events.

What are expansion worlds?
There will be mega expansions that feature "Expansion worlds", where you thematically send your children to these worlds to explore while your main character stays in the main world. These Expansion worlds feature new country area, new cities, quests , mobs, bosses, instances and items. However, you can only send items to the main world and not vice versa. Players can complete challenges to earn shop coins that can be used to purchase cosmetic items.

At the end of the event, the new world will be stitched to the main world. Items and experience gained in the expansion world will be transferred over to your main character in the main world. Access to the new world can be bought using shop coins or given free while under the relevant tier of subscription.
