The Beasts of Old Valyria – ‘A Secret Wedding’ Event Preview

 |  By 

The Dragon celebration continues on August 8th with the “A Secret Wedding” event arc! The secret act of love between Prince Rhaegar and Lyanna Stark would be the spark that set off a rebellion against the centuries-long Targaryen dynasty.

With additional chances to earn Hero Relics for Rhaegal and Pawn Shards for the Dragon’s Dominion March Pawns, we’re also introducing even more customization options. Let’s take a look at all of the rewards we have available!

New Banner Sigil Customizations – Set #1

Live on August 8th, all players will have instant access to 3 new Banner Sigils for your customization needs! Of course, we had to make them all Dragon themed. Select from Dragon Head, Dragon Egg, and Dragon Flight.

We have additional Banner Sigils arriving in later Dragon event arcs, so stay tuned to our blogs in the next coming weeks!

Dragon Lore Excavation Unlocker

As a reminder, the Dragon Lore Excavation Unlock boost is still available by completing your Daily Quests!

The boost will allow you to construct and upgrade the Dragon Lore Excavator by tapping an empty farm plot to the south of your city. This boost will last for 24-hours. Once built, the Dragon Lore Excavator will generate Dragon Lore over time for you to collect!

New Hero! Rhaegal “The Green Fury”

On August 8th during the “Slumbering Dragon” event, you’ll have another chance to earn additional Hero Relics for Rhaegal! Just like the previous Dragon event arc, hero relics can also be earned by praying at the Shrine and completing Daily Quests.
