Dragonspine Special Training

There are three types of "Dragonspine Special Training": "Agility Training," "Tracker Training," and "Combat Training."

"Agility Training"

During the event, four race tracks will be available. Traveleres can follow directions on their map and teleport to the race track. After beginning the race track training, Travelers should follow the guides to proceed down a race course and collect Insignias of Adventure and Insignias of Conquest. The amount of points you score for the special training is based on the amount of time consumed and the number of Insignias you obtained during the training.

Insignias of Adventure: scattered in the race treack and some will be hidden in the course.

Inisignias of Conquest: appear only at certain times.

In addition, Blessings appearing on the track will enhance the character's abilities and help Travelers complete their training even faster.

Galespring Blessing: enhance your character's jumping power.

Ironskin Blessing: allow your character to shatter the ice pillars around them.

Snowsrider Emblems can be exchanged in the Event Shop for rewards.

"Tracker Training"

Eight tracker training challenges will be available during the event. Travelers can follow directions on their map and teleport to the training location.

Find and melt all the Ice Crystal Piles within the training area to complete this Tracker Training session.

Melting certain Ice Crystal Piles will allow you to find Snowman Components used to build Puffy Snowmen. You will obtain at least one of every Component type if you complete all the Tracker Training sessions.

"Combat Training"

Eight combat training challenges will be available during the event. Travelers can follow directions on their map and teleport to the training location.

Combat Training camps contain Lures that have two modes.

"Source Cold" Mode: increase the rate at which Sheer Cold will accumuluate on tyour characters and buff nearby opponents.

"Heat Source" Mode: decrease the accumulation of Sheer Cold and buff characters.

There are three mechanisms around the Lures. When characters carrying Scarlet Quartz attack these mechanisms, they will activate.

Scarly Quartz may be found near the Lures.

Once all three mechanisms are activated, they will change the Lure's state to "Heat Source" and decrease the accumulation of Sheer Cold. Activating the challenge after switching Lures to Heat Source mode also provides characters with the following buffs for the duration of the challenge:

  • They will have a certain amount of Energy restored at fixed intervals.
  • When a character lands an attack on an opponent while carrying Scarlet Quartz, the attack will unleash all the Quartz's energy in one go and will also triger one shcock at that opponent's position, dealing AoE Pyro DMG.

You may obtain Scarlet Quartz from defeating certain monsters.
