The event grounds are free to access, and limited shopping is available for those with the silvers.

No longer will one need to seek out a portal to gain access to the grounds! Typing QUEST TRANSPORT will work from most in-town locations, provided they do not block magical transportation.

Residents of Ta'Vaalor, take note! Because the Fortress of Ta'Vaalor is warded to prevent anyone from teleporting into its walls, you will have to walk outside the gates to enter Summit Academy.
