In the first event challenge, "Hundred-Pace Hurling Rites", players must throw darts and shatter as many Holding Pots as they can within the time limit. During the challenge, a Ring of Rites and Sleight Pots will appear. If a thrown dart passes through the Ring to hit a Holding Pot, the points earned will be doubled. Hitting Sleight Pots allows players to throw darts more quickly in succession.

2. Inspiration Eruption

Next up is a combat challenge called “Inspiration Eruption”. Players must defeat opponents to collect "Inspiring Crystals”. After a certain period of time, Inspiring Crystals will rupture and release an area-of-effect (AoE) shockwave around the player's character. From time to time, enemies carrying "Mythic Nexuses" will appear. These foes are very tough and difficult to defeat.

3. Mending Painting Prospects

Finally, we have “Mending Painting Prospects”, which is a photography event with an intriguing twist. In this challenge, players must take pictures of artworks to help an art conservator restore them. To succeed, players must match the pictures they take with the current scenery and look for any objects that are missing from the picture.
