Taking place annually in Olaesta, the Trials of Lumnis a series of challenges run out of the Needle of Pentas on the Isle of Ornath by the Order of the Lumnasi Viragos.

Arrival

Upon arriving at the Isle of Ornath, you will exit a gazebo and walk a short distance to the Needle of Pentas, where a monk on the foyer greets you. This is where you obtain your Brooch of Lumnis, which is your reward item.

Quest

When you use QUEST to be transported to the Needle of Pentas, you'll be confined to this area of the Isle of Ornath. There is some exploration that anyone can take part in, whether you want to participate in the event or not. There are five teleportation disks, Planar, Spiritual, Elemental, Chaos, and Order, that will bring you to Liabo. Each section will have a ring you enter which is where the trials take place. This is where you'll need a scholar's card and a brooch (the relic). You are awarded an increment to your brooch upon entering the puzzle area, win, lose, or surrender. The increment is only good for the "ring" you're entering. For example, entering Planar will increment the Planar benefit by +1. If you want to increment the Elemental benefit, you'll need to visit the Elemental "ring" to try your knowledge (and maybe luck) there.

Successfully completing both puzzles and trivia will award a prize on top of the experience. The common prize will be lightening notes. The uncommon prize will be deepening notes of different varieties. And a rare prize will be an RPA orb. If you have a free hand, it will be delivered right to you. If you don't, it will be on the ground. Hopefully they are both entertaining and challenging as well.
