Sands of Time – Time-Limited Event
Sands of Time is a limited-time event that brings with it new content and heroes as well as their story. This whole event will run till 13th January 2022 and start on 23rd December 2021. The event itself brings with it an 8-Day Log In/Check-In Event, a new themed story for the event, and new Aurorians. It will also bring a new Special Event book for this new event which players can complete to obtain more rewards. Players can also purchase the advanced rewards pages of the book by paying the real money via a transaction or keep the free rewards as it is. Sands of Time is a new type of event that combines the usual event currency farming as well as clearing the main story to gain more event currency. Players use the new energy called “Action Point” specifically for playing the main story stages of this event and can earn event currency called “Mistletoe” by clearing these stages. Each Action Point recharges overtime at the ratio of 1 Action Point per 4 hours and a maximum of 30 Action Points can be stored at a time. The requirement to access and complete this event will be – cleared Main stages 1-16.
This event has an event currency store and redeeming store where players can exchange their collected event currencies through grinding stages for prizes. Players can do this by going to the event and clicking on the Cedar Market tab which will lead the players to the event exchange shop. Players can collect the event currency called Mistletoe by farming the various main story stages as well as event story stages in the Northland Journey. Players can further exchange this in the Cedar Market for juicy rewards like the event exclusive 5-star Aurorian Lola and her Solambers. Additional rewards include the likes of Special Star Flares, Star Crest, Holiday-themed Decorative items and furniture items, different colored order boxes, sublimes, and lots of Nightium. Let’s learn everything about the Sands of Time event in detail.
Special Event Book
Battle passes in games give players rewards at each level. The same concept is applied to “Special Event Record”. This book consists of different pages where each page unlocks a specific reward at every page. This book consists of different tasks which are further divided into daily, weekly, and event-related tasks. Completing them will give players the required task points to advance in levels in the Special Event Records. Apart from the guide for quests and rewards, new purchasable packs themed for the new event will also be available to purchase in the store using real-life money.
In the special event book, players can complete several quests listed in the Event Book which will grant them Book EXP. This EXP will contribute to leveling up your Special Event Book. The book contains a total of 60 levels with each level requiring 1000 EXP. The quests are divided into 3 parts – Stage 1, Stage 2, and Permanent Quests. The Stage 1 missions were the ones that are introduced to the players during the currently ongoing event – Sands of Time.
Completing the event is included as some of the missions in the special event book, hence, a good way to combine 2 rewards is by completing the event itself. Players are incentivized by getting free rewards as well for the joy of our free-to-play players in the form of Star Flares, Lumamber, General Jaspers and skin for Nails called The Stoic Coachman.
During the Sands of Time event period, players can get additional materials and premium currency just by logging in. It is called the Daily Sign-In in the official event terms and lasts for 8 days. These 8 days start from whenever you first login during the event period. However, these are available only till 10th January 2022 so be careful to claim all the rewards within that time.

Trial of the Aurora
Trial of the Aurora is the challenge mission in the Sands of Time event where players can complete different tough maps to earn premium currency. There are no clear conditions except clearing the stage. Players can earn up to 50 Lumambers per exploration stage. There are currently 2 difficulties included in the Trial of the Aurora challenge missions – Normal and Nightmare. Each difficulty contains 6 different playable stages.
Players can challenge the stages on any difficulty and the recommendations are only given to give players an idea of the basic minimum expected requirements. All of the stages take 0 prism to play and can be forfeited at any time. Hence, we recommend at least trying to complete them to get bonus Lumambers.
