Night Of The Nocturne
A December Holiday
From the veiled brambles and branches of the Tangled Wood, the elusive Nocturnes are begin to spread across the realm. These oft-hidden dragons are leaving the comfort of their dreary habitats and traversing Sornieth under the cover of darkness. On this, the shortest day of the year, Nocturne dragons rule the skies.
Night of the Nocturne is the annual celebration of one of Flight Rising's Limited breeds, scrolls for which can only be collected via this in-game event once a year!

It is possible to attain Nocturne Dragons in the following ways:

  • Finding rare Unhatched Nocturne Eggs.
  • Finding very rare Breed Change: Nocturne scroll items.

The items above are found in Strange Chests--baffling containers left by the breed during their only two weeks of activity. Nocturnes aren't keen to just shower the realm in gifts, however. Several of these chests have a vicious mind of their own, and some are now known to be under the protection of some new clever and camouflaged foes... In addition, the chests have a limited lifespan, and if they are not opened during the Night of the Nocturne event, they disintegrate into dust.

In order to find these chests, players may use any gathering skill in any elemental region or battle Mimic monsters in the Coliseum during the time the event is active. They can be encountered in all Coliseum areas other than the Training Fields, with higher level mimics having a greater chance to drop a chest. During the event it is also rarely possible to find Unhatched Nocturne Eggs while Scavenging in any elemental region. Baldwin is keen to have new alchemists help him craft the perfect brew to unlock the secrets of strange chests. After two weeks have passed, Nocturnes, their eggs, and their Strange Chests will become scarce until next year, when they again return.

The enchanted cobwebs found inside many strange chests are having an alarming effect on dragons! The smirch gene has made itself known, and is altering the tertiary genes of unwary dragons. This gene has a rare chance of being found inside strange chests!


Strange Chests will only contain valuable items: breed change scrolls, unhatched Nocturne eggs, and familiars. But many of the creatures who give up these chests will likely part with some other trinkets! Below are some items that you'll be able to procure, exclusive to Night of the Nocturne!

Strange chests can contain a variety of unique items. The following rewards are possible when one is opened during the event.

Baldwin seeks the help of Sornieth's alchemists to unlock the secret of the strange chests and mimicry familiars. These recipes are available for the duration of the holiday, and will cycle out for another year when the Night of the Nocturne is complete.
