Rumor Woods is an expansion to Summit Academy that was first run in June 2019 and introduced mounts to Gemstone, along with jousting. Similar to Duskruin Arena, the majority of transactions are handled without merchant interaction. This event offers the same customization options found during the original runs of Summit Academy and adds the Rumor Woods expansion where players can play games, buy mounts, customize them, and buy gear for themselves or their mounts.

Currency

The featured currency for Rumor Woods is raikhen which is used to purchase mounts, mount accessories, and various other goods and/or automated services. It can be earned through jousting, the fox hunt, and the new pixie hunt.

Activities

  • Jousting - Those who are interested in jousting must first choose which side they will ride for. They will then don traditional jousting gear, saddle up on their steed of choice, and prepare for battle! Jousting wins will be tallied toward your faction’s total, and once the event ends, those aligned with the winning side will receive not only bragging rights, but new titles as well!

  • Fox hunt - The fox hunt is a quick chase to find the cunning fox. Adventurers have 90 seconds to track down the fox to be awarded currency and other prizes! Finding other fauna in Rumor Woods will also come with rewards! Some lucky hunters will be awarded a special bugle that can be used to summon a new pet fox (initial release 2020).
  • Pixie Hunt - New in 2021. The pixie hunt is similar to the original Fox Hunt, but you need to track down a pixie instead. Some lucky hunters will be awarded a special morning glory that can be used to summon a new pet dragonfly.
