It is obligatory anime beach episode-o'clock for Alchemy Stars as the rather wordy Summer’s Breeze & The Port of Hope: Winds in the Harbor event launches. Luckily the event is as loaded as its title, bringing a host of new features, updates and cosmetics to enjoy.
The event comes in two parts, Harbor Myths and Strange Alley Shadow, with the latter also bringing a Hard and Nightmare mode to really give a challenge. In addition to these two, a fun new quest is available called Heart-Throbbing Divination. Engaging in the age-old art of a text-based adventure, the quest follows Carleen, Vice and Fia and offers a chance to earn Lumamber, and has multiple different endings to unlock. Clearing the events themselves will reward Special Star Flares, on top of a bounty of login bonuses for everyone to enjoy.
Starting today and running until August 25th, players will have an increased chance to recruit the characters Carleen: Smoldering Soul as well as Ciel. Recruiting a 6-Star Aurorian will also grant a 50% chance to recruit Carleen, whilst recruiting a 5-Star Aurorian will offer a 25% chance to draw Ciel. After this event, both characters will be added to the general recruitment pool.
The Cloud Garden is also receiving some love, with new craftable furniture items being added for further decorative choices. Two new unique trees and three ornamental fish will also be added to the Cloud Gardens. On top of the furniture, new features have also been added, including the fishing follower mechanic and follower squad adjustments.
As a thank you for playing, all Navigators will receive a 4-Star Aurorian Brock, and a Harbour City Pier background, being distributed on the 11th. The Harbour Myths and Strange Alley Shadow events will run until the 22nd, with the text adventure lasting from the 11th to the 25th. For the duration of these events, there will be a Street Fair Event Store open, with players being able to amas Harbor Fair Tokens to trade for special items.
