UPDATE: The event start has been delayed by 1 week. Now due to start on Thursday March 3rd 2020. Challenge of the Gods in late March has also been delayed by one week.
The nightmares return as the mysterious creature known as the Harvester of Nightmares arrives once again to feast on the restless dreams of the sleeping citizens of Protector’s Enclave. A band of Vistani from distant Barovia led by the mysterious Madam Eva follows its arrival in an attempt to drive back the Harvester before it can claim more victims. In order to do this, the Vistani seek the aid of adventurers willing to take on this shadowy menace.
The restless slumber begins Thursday, March 3rd at 7:30am PT/10.30am ET/3.30pm GMT
Awaken from the nightmares on Thursday, March 24th at 7:30am PT/10.30am/3.30pm GMT
A creature of fey origin, the Harvester dwells in the Nightmare Realm but only attacks if provoked. To draw the monster out, adventurers must enter its realm to cleanse the nightmares plaguing the dreams of sleeping Neverwintans. Doing so starves the Harvester until it has no choice but to attack the intruding adventurers. Adventurers will need to be level 20 and have a minimum 18,000 Item Level to participate in this event. Note: Event can be completed on any character that meets the minimum requirements but the daily quest can only be done once per account per day.
The Harvester turns dreams into nightmares so it can feed. Because of this, the Nightmare Realm often appears as a dark reflection of a place where the dreamer feels safe. This time, the Nightmare Realm looks like locations around Protector’s Enclave.
Cleansing nightmares is done by defeating a series of arena-style encounters culminating in a fight with a nightmare version of an existing boss monster. Once defeated, adventurers return to the Enclave to receive daily rewards. If adventurers wish to cleanse more nightmares you can do so by picking up another mission and entering the queue to assist other nightmare explorers.
Like Hell Pit, Harvester of Nightmares is an appointment event that rewards the user with currencies that can be used to purchase valuable items.
Stores & Rewards
For completing the daily quest “Haunting the Harvester” 14 times throughout the event duration you will acquire ONE token of achievement. This token can be used in the Achievement store.
**You will have had to complete the minimum daily quest requirement for 5 Appointment Events in order to purchase the Golden Warhorse or the Windsoul Genasi**
For those who continue to fight beyond the 14-day minimum there is another set of rewards unique to this type of event. Every success beyond 14 will result in a Token of Challenge. These tokens can be used to acquire some great items including a new set of overload enchants.
Finally, for each day’s success a number of tokens called Token of Participation will be granted to the player up to 49 if all daily and bonus tasks are completed for each of the 21 days. The rewards offered here are not nearly as powerful as those offered for the other tokens but they are still quite enticing.
If I had to describe this list of rewards, I would say they are pretty dreamy. So are you up to the task of destroying the Harvester of Nightmares?
Note: An event buyout will be available in the Zen Market. This buyout will not prevent players from participating in the event but will not award any extra tokens – players will instead get AD and RP for each success.
