More power is at your fingertips with two new events arriving with Blade & Soul: Celestial Dawn on June 20!

With the arrival of Blade & Soul: Celestial Dawn on June 20, we’re putting forth two brand new events that will make it easier for you to power-up your weapons as well as discover new trinkets that will that keep you from the edge of death as you venture forth into the depths of darkness.

Weaponsmith’s Forge

  • Event Duration: June 20–July 25
  • Reward Redemption Period: July 25–August 15

Tackle more challenging PvE content with more powerful weapons by taking advantage of discounted upgrades during this event.

During the Weaponsmith’s Forge upgrade event there will be substantial (but temporary!) changes to weapon upgrade requirements. This will include opportunities to potentially upgrade your weapons at significantly lower costs.. In some cases, you’ll also benefit from the offering items being replaced with a single Nebula Stone.

We’ve prepared a file that outlines all the temporary event cost reductions here: Celestial Dawn: Upgrade Event

Be sure to take advantage of the Weaponsmith’s Forge cost reductions as soon as possible! These are only available until maintenance on August 15.

In addition to cost reductions during the event, you’ll be able to more easily get some of the upgrade materials you’ll need through the new Gildstone event currency. Completing the Daily Challenge gets you two Goldsmith Evolution Chests; each chest contains (among other rewards) three Gildstone event tokens, which can be turned in for rewards from the Dragon Express. In addition, players completing the Dungeon Daily Quests on the corresponding day (see table below) will receive one Gildstone per quest.

You can also get one Gildstone for free per day per account from the Hongmoon Store *under the Hongmoon Coin tab*, so be sure to keep checking back and grabbing your free Gildstone.
