EDIT: We previously stated that those that obtained a Veteran last year during the Easter Event would not receive one.
Thanks to your great feedback, EVERY user will now be able to get a Veteran General for eggs during this year’s Easter event no matter how many Veterans you already have.
Colourful Easter Eggs
You can collect lots of Easter Eggs during the event which you can exchange in the Shop for various buffs, buildings, specialists and decorative items. Easter Eggs are tradable and displayed in the store house(s) like all other resources.
How can I get the Easter Eggs?
• As a reward for completing a series of Easter Egg quests
• As a lucky find when the explorer returns from his treasure hunt
• As a result of trade with other players,
• From the Shop in exchange for Gems.
You will find the Easter Eggs in your warehouse in the “Basic” goods category.
Easter Egg Hunting is an Adventure
Using explorers to help you in the Easter Egg Hunt is not the only solution, you can also follow the new weekly quest chains. During the Easter event, all active Lvl 17+ players will be able to interact with a new NPC: he will assign them one quest chain every 6 days. Each quest chain will consist of several sub quests, including quests related to Easter adventures. The quests will be split into 3 level ranges: 17-24, 25-39 and 40-50. The Easter adventures and quest texts will be the same for all levels – the only differentiation between different level ranges is the amount of resources needed for completing the task.
Important: after finishing the Easter quest, Easter Eggs will be sent directly to your storehouse.
How do I start the Easter Adventure?
To start the Easter adventure, click the adventure icon in the Star menu and then select "Start Adventure". The adventure will now appear in the Quest book or to the right hand side of your screen.
In order to complete the adventure, select the adventure in the Quest book and click “Visit” or click on the adventure on the right hand side of your screen, and then click “Visit” in the context menu. After you entered the Easter adventure, follow the instructions mentioned in the Quest book.
You can check the adventure details in the Quest book to see how many Easter Eggs remain to be found. Keep in mind that each adventure has to be completed manually by clicking the respective button in the Quest book.
Every player will be able to purchase one additional Easter adventure in the Shop (for 1 Fish). The purchase of Easter adventures will not be limited to any level range, so players under level 17 will be able to purchase them as well. All players will be able to start the Easter adventures, even those that are below lvl 26.
Important: if you finish the Easter adventure without Easter quest running, you will receive NO REWARD.
YOU CAN VISIT THE SHOP AND EXCHANGE EASTER EGGS FOR THE ITEMS MENTIONED BELOW.
"Veteran" (1,350 , maximum 1 in total)
This special general gives you an added bonus, you can assign 250 military units (instead of 200) to him. He can also travel twice as fast to adventure zones and also recovers more quickly from defeats in battle than a normal general.
”Experienced Explorer” (420 , maximum 2 in total)
This explorer can be pretty helpful: he only takes half the time to complete his search missions in comparison to normal explorers.
Important: You can only have access to 2 explorers of this type. This means that if you managed to get this Explorer in the last Easter Event, you will only be able to get one additional one.
