Ok so I'm gonna try one last time to get people off their lazy asses (or ppl who don't know how) and try break the damn seal for once in months on Eyrda and many other servers.
1) At 20:00 on tuesday, event starts. Pick up the quest from Duke Vassily in Freedom Harbor Floating Garden. Then you can try hand in the quest to Sheaton, the NPC beside him, but it won't work because we gotta break the seal first.
2) To start doing your part in breaking the seal, after having the quest from step 1, go and kill mobs around your level. They must be white-name mobs so within 4 levels of your own. Party works too, and it's actually recommended.
3) Every 15-20 mobs or so that your party kills, each member in the pt gets a page of the oracle. Maximum pages per person is 30.
4) Read the oracles to help breaking the seal, you get some exp upon doing so as well. When enough oracles have been read on the entire server (example, 5000, but this is an arbitrary number, idk of the real one), then the seal breaks.So this event requires the cooperation and help from as many people as possible, do your part in helping
5) After seal breaks, there's a system message about it, then go back to sheaton and get new guides for 2nd part.
I will explain more about 2nd part IF the damn seal ever breaks, but needless to say it's very worth the minimal effort you have to do on your own (and pray others do too).
2nd part gives a **** load of exp AND Wineglasses, like literally, you will see them on AH 20s each or less because of it. Sounds tempting? Then go help with first step, it's not even any big effort. All you have to do for yourself, is pick up the quest at 20:00, then go grind some mobs alone or with a pt, you even have a bot now! And after getting 30 oracles, right click to read them all. And pray enough others do the same, that's all...
sigh, if it fails today too, can the GMs do something about this event please
Like, is it in your powers to help with it, for example kill yourselves like 3k mobs and open the oracles to help out break it faster lol
