GENERAL 2019 Summer Ethereal Event will be activated on the test server at 12:01AM 6/15/2019, pending the test publish completing before then. If the Friday test publish runs long, the Ethereal Event will be active once the server comes back up. While the ethereal event is running, completing any Chaos Descending solo mission will grant an Astral Ethereal reward crate. When the Astral Ethereal reward crate is received it grants an Astral Gloom-Hardened Medallion up to your daily limit, and a small chance to receive a bonus reward based on the current Ethereal Wave. You may only receive 4 Astral Gloom-Hardened Medallions per day on each character from expert missions, 1 Astral Gloom-Hardened Medallion per day on each character from solo missions, and 1 Astral Gloom-Hardened Medallion per day on each character from Public Quest missions. On the test server, and only on the test server, solo missions will count as both the solo mission and an expert mission for calculating ethereal rewards. Astral Gloom-Hardened Medallions may be used to purchase rewards from the Ethereal Merchant located in Myrist, the Great Library. During wave 1 the Ethereal Merchant will sell Gloom-Hardened armor pieces, and Astral Gloom-Hardened Shards. Astral Gloom-Hardened Shard may be used to upgrade the planar level of Gloom-Hardened armor. Unlike in previous ethereal events, Astral Gloom-Hardened Medallions will not be made Heirloom at the end of the event. Instead, once a character has three fully upgraded Gloom-Hardened armor pieces, they will receive an account flag that allows them to upgrade Gloom-Hardened armor without expending shards on all characters on the account. Ethereal Waves Wave 1 begins on 6/18/2019 Wave 2 begins on 7/30/2019 Wave 3 begins on 9/10/2019 The 2019 Summer Ethereal event will end on 10/29/2019 ITEMS Ambar the armor merchant no longer requires you to have unlocked previous tiers of armor to purchase from him.
