Automated Games

Digging, Mini-Games

Every year at Ebon Gate gives you the chance to play and experience multiple games and other adventures. At this year's Ebon Gate we have digging on the beach, and various games of luck. From said adventures you have the chance to pull great prizes. These prizes range from junk to one of a kind unique items.

  • Games, & Digging - All pull from the same shared feeder. Quest items will not be found in fishing.
  • All automated games (Mini-Games, Digging, and Fishing) share the unique/jackpot feeders.

Dig along the black sands of the beach, and unbury long lost treasures! NPCs available along the shore's edge will sell shovels in convenient 1-use and 20-use sizes, which cost 2,000 and 40,000 silvers, respectively.

A few Mini-Games can be found in the sea caverns, and will require that your pockets jingle with silvers in order to play. Mini-Games are not compatible with notes, so fill your pockets will silvers!

Both Digging and Mini-Games participation will require a Games Pass, available in the SimuCoin store. Passes are account-wide and are good for one week's play time.

Fishing

It will cost 50 Ebon Gate seashells to enter the fishing area (a games pass is not required), and top tier unique/jackpot rewards pull from the same shared feeder as the activities above. Once inside, (make sure you take your fishing gear with you!), you will remain until you catch a fish. After a successful catch, you will be removed from the room. Caught fish will need to be CUT to receive your prize (and maybe a filet). Fishing will yield items that are not found in other games, but can produce both Unique and Jackpot items.

Fishing does not require any specific skill, though a bit of survival may help you cut out a filet. General knowledge of the fishing system will help, as fishing can be a bit time-consuming, especially when unfamiliar with this activity.

You will need a fishing pole, fishing line, and bait, all of which can be found in the Fishing Shack down on the pier in Caligos Isle, though you're not required to purchase items from this shop - ANY fishing pole/wire/bait will function the same.

Fishing is the exclusive place to obtain the required item for conversion to Ghezresh. Those who do not want to convert will have an alternate path if this item is found. This item is also tradeable.

Diving Competition

Have you ever wanted to jump off a cliff and perform the most perfect and beautiful swan dive? Or would you rather curl up your body and crash into the water like a cannonball? Now you can! And, you'll be scored on your efforts. The top five divers at the end of the festival will be known forever as a Caligos Diving Champion (a post-name unique title). This activity costs 50 seashells. It does not tie into the prize feeders, but it does offer some unique gems that are not available in other games. A partial list of gems can be found at EG Diving Competition Gems.

Arena of the Abyss

Newly opened in 2019, Caligos has its own arena, run by demons. The arena entrance (Lich Room# 28549) can be accessed via green portal from the hazy chamber near the fishing area, or by rowing a gondola from the pier in the next room. The rowing is a bit of a puzzle. The entrance fee is 100 redeemed seashells. PAY 100 when standing in the entrance and the abyran'ra will escort you to the arena grounds. You do not need a games pass to enter the arena.

Once inside, you can BEG the spirits to speed through the announcements if you wish, then face five undead creatures one at a time. To avoid death, you can SURRENDER, but you will also surrender your prize. Once you have defeated all five, you will be removed from the arena and awarded a prize. Prizes include breakable hearts similar to other breakable items found in digging- usually containing a few silvers or a gem, Fusion Shaman tokens, green Roleplaying award orbs and rarely a necrotic ring.

Unlocking of Variously-adorned Baldrics, Eisenrucks, and Gem Pouches - Plat & Prime Schedules

NOTE: For the purposes of this post and during the merchant sessions detailed below, the numeric reference of the unlocked "tier" level of any eisenruck or baldric will be the same as the number of gem sockets on the eisenruck or the same as the number of times the baldric has been unlocked.

The easiest way to verify the tier of an eisenruck or adorned baldric is to analyze it and pay attention to the "This is a..." sentence near the bottom of the analyze text.

Ebon Gate - Platinum

Apprentice Modificator Gunkweeler and Arcanist Leghan will be providing unlocking services for variously-adorned baldrics, eisenrucks, and secure gem pouches in the workroom attached to the Chisel, Peen, and Chamfer, Esq. shop at 3:00 pm Eastern on Sat.
