This will open a portal that will transport them to the Xinghejian Island, where mini-games such as the Road to the Moon Palace and the Star Gatherer awaits them.
The former will test their memory while tracing the paths in a small area, while the latter will have them collect different colored stars, each has a corresponding point and a stackable speed buff that will last for five seconds.
Aside from these mini-games, the event will also have the Bright Light Blessing, which according to Gaming Lyfe, can be played even outside of the Festival Grounds as long as players have the Moon Offering Incense in order to buy sky Lanterns.
The Moon Festival will also giveaway new avatars, emojis, and photo filters for players who participated.
New Dungeons, Raids
Aside from the event, Swords of Legends Online will also receive two Dungeons that were set to Extreme difficulty.
According to the patch notes posted by the developers in the game's website, the Frostbitten Patch in Weichuan Highlands, the Chou Prison in the District of Jiangdu, and the Raging River Ruins in Shanghuai Grasslands will be available in said difficulty, along with the previously released Yemo City in Wuzhao and the Nightmare Temple of Mercy.
These dungeons will limit their maximum Gearscore to item level 75, and according to Technosteria, they will limit the maximum level of talismans to 2, the maximum level of equipment upgrades to 6, and the maximum level of jade with slots to 3.
The drops per boss in these Extreme mode dungeons will be limited per week, and will reset on Sundays at 6:00 AM server time.
Players may also join the Xuanjiu Jade Palace Hard Mode Raids, where players of 10 to 20 will march deep within the Zhongnan Foothills and below the Nine Dragon Waterfall to face the new challenge.
Players who will clear this Raid will receive a Level 90 gear, player-versus-environment (PvE) Sealstones III, weapon and bracer talisman II Recipes, and more. These can be received per boss per week, and it will reset on Thursdays at 6:00 AM Server Time
In order to enter the said Raid, they need to have item or items that are Level 75 equipped to their characters, and they can only enter manually, which means there are no automatic matchmaking available in the Raid.
