Ancient Treasure Chest Event (Aug. 2010)

From Mabinogi World Wiki
August 25th, 2010 - September 7th, 2010


While adventuring through Erinn Dungeons and the Shadow Realm in the next two weeks, you may come across Ancient Treasure Chest Fragments. Fragments, of course, are no good all by themselves so you'll need to find someone who can piece the chest together. That person is the Town Office Administrator in Dunbarton: Eavan. Eavan will provide you with a keyword that will allow you to exchange Fragments for prizes.

Battle your way through dungeons and the Shadow Realm, fighting monsters of your own level. Fighting Fomors and monsters weaker than you will yield no Treasure Chest Fragments. Once you've had your fill of combat, bring Eavan ten Ancient Treasure Chest Fragments and she will reward you with two items, a Gift Box and an Ancient Treasure Chest. The Gift Box is easily opened and useful items. The Ancient Treasure Chest requires a special key found in the Cash Shop. If you do not wish to purchase a key from the Cash Shop, you may dispose of the Ancient Treasure Chest by dropping it on the ground. Due to the fragile nature of the Ancient Treasure Chests and the volatile chemical Eavan uses to fuse them together, the Chest will dissolve upon landing on the ground, along with anything contained therein.

  • Finishing a monster in a dungeon or shadow mission will randomly result in an Ancient Treasure Chest Fragment being dropped.
    • Despite the event's description, fragments will also drop from dungeons within the continent of Iria.
    • Fragments drop from all monsters in Shadow Missions and dungeons. Fragments will not drop from monsters in the field such as Bears or Raccoons.
    • Fragments will drop if you're playing as a pet.
      • However, you cannot pick up fragments while playing as the pet itself.
    • If your pet deals the finishing blow on the monster and a fragment drops, your pet must be summoned (you must be playing a Human/Elf/Giant) to be able to pick up the fragment.
      • Once the monster's body disappears, you may pick it up even if you de-summoned your pet.
  • Ancient Treasure Chest Fragments can also be stored in pets.

Tips on Obtaining the Fragments

  • All level monsters drop fragments.
    • The higher a monster's CP class, the more often they drop fragments.
      • Weakest monsters hardly ever drop fragments.
      • It is possible to get around this by enabling pet auto-finish and using a somewhat weak pet to attack.
      • You may also summon a stone golem since they have low CP.
      • You can also use -CP enchants to make monsters stronger.
        • This method may require a large number of potentially expensive enchants, depending on your CP.
        • See CP Modifiers for details
