Alchemy Stars – Eye of The Storm Event
Alchemy Stars is currently one of the hottest global releases for this year. The game features beautiful 3D models and artwork for all its characters and a strategic yet fun to learn grid-based combat system. The game is not your classic run-of-the-mill gacha game but a well-developed game by Tencent Games. With over 10 million downloads globally, the game seems no signs of letting the players let go of the hype as they had just announced the first big event coming to the game since its launch titled – Eye of The Storm. The event is expected to bring some new characters to the game and diversify the lore even more.
The new event is coming to the global version of Alchemy Stars on 7th July. The new event with the tagline “Fear, Pain, and Fury; where will they lead her to next” will be divided into the different limited type events, new characters Eve and Sinsa, and new exclusive event furniture. Apart from that, the previous targeted banner units Carleen and Uriel will be shifted to the mainstay banner. Let’s take a deep look into the event and the new things coming for Alchemy Stars.
Time-Limited Event Stages
During the period of the Eye of the Storm event, new time-limited stages will open for all the players. The requirement to access and complete these stages will be – cleared Main stages 1-16.
Players can access these time-limited event stages in 2 different parts – Where the Wind Rises and Homebound. A new concept of basic stage and challenge stage is introduced here in which Where the Wind Rises is the basic stage and Homebound is the challenge stage. Keep in mind that these 2 stages will not be available after the time-limited event ends. Let’s take a look at the timings of these events: –
Where the Wind Rises
UTC+0: 07/8, 09:00 to 07/22, 09:00
UTC-5: 07/8, 04:00 to 07/22, 04:00
UTC+0: 07/13, 09:00 to 07/22, 09:00
UTC-5: 07/13, 04:00 to 07/22, 04:00
During the Eye of the Storm event, players can get event currency called “Wrench Nut Emblem event token” for exchanging them for valuable materials in the Time-Limited Event Store – The Highway Store. The rewards included are the following:-

New Heroes Eve and Sinsa
The 2 new Aurorians available for recruitment are Eve and Sinsa from their exclusive event Eye of the Storm. These are the 2 main featured characters on the banner titled “The Red Eye Tempest Time-Limited Recruitment Banner”. Players can summon them with the base rate of 2% just like any other 6-Star Aurorian in the game till 50 summons. After 50 summons, the rates will increase by 2.5% per summon for summoning a 6-Star Aurorian. There exists no pity for a specific character but at least players who have saved up enough summons can be assured to summon a 6-Star Aurorian with the rate up.
Coming to the characters, Sinsa is a Fire Thunder elemental type unit that is classified as a Detonator in the game. His skills are more relatable to a brawler-type unit as he deals more damage to units that are closer to him when he uses his Active Skill Sinsa’s Shatterstrike. His passive or equipment skill Killing Sand states that he can attack units diagonally and apply a Shatter mark on them which can stack up to 5 times. Each mark of Shatter reduces their defense by 5% of Sinsa’s defense and lasts for 1 round. His chain ability SplatterFire is just flat-out damage in a diamond/radial/max radial shape according to the number of tiles traveled on. Here are his skills in detail: –
Active Ability: Selects 1 tile from the 8 tiles in a cross shape around you and deals 180% damage in a fan-shaped area in this direction (the closer the enemy is to Sinsa, the higher the damage. Can deal up to 2.5x damage). If you select an outer tile, Sinsa will move forward 1 tile to cast this skill.
Passive Ability: Normal attacks can hit diagonally. Diagonal normal attacks, Active Skills, and Chain Combos afflict the target with 1 stack of Shatter, which stacks up to 5 times. Each stack reduces the target’s DEF by an amount equal to 5% of Sinsa’s basic DEF, lasting for 1 round
Chain Ability (4/9/13 tiles) – Deals 160% damage to 12 tiles in a diamond shape.
Deals 165% damage to 16 tiles in a radial shape.
Deals 165% damage to enemies in a radial shape to the maximum range.
Eve is a Thunder Fire elemental type unit that is classified as a Detonator in the game. Her skills are very short-ranged but she hits multiple times and very hard. Her Active ability Red-Eye Tornado hits the nearest target within surrounding 3 clusters 25 times, increasing her damage by 1% every time she hits up to 25% of all the hits are taken into account. This skill might make her very useful for boss fights are they usually have very high HP and can tank these hits. Her passive ability states that whenever she attacks either through normal attacks, chain attacks, or active ability attacks; her 8th attack will always deal additional damage equal to 100% of her attack to the nearest enemy. Her chain ability Lightning Ball deals damage in a cross shape/ max range cross shape/ max range radial shape depending on the number of tiles traveled on. Here are her skills in detail: –
Active Ability: Deals 50% damage 20 times to the nearest enemy within 3 surrounding clusters, increasing damage by 1% each time. Reselects a target after eliminating an enemy. After the casting has ended, stuns the last target attacked.
Passive Ability: When normal attacks, chain combos, and active skills inflict damage, every 8th instance of damage also inflicts 100% damage once to the enemy nearest to Eve
Chain Ability (4/9/13 tiles) – Deals 150% damage to 12 tiles in a cross shape.
Deals 155% damage to enemies in a cross shape to the maximum range.
Deals 160% damage to enemies in a radial shape to the maximum range.
