Work Together & Unlock Exclusive Rewards during Dragon Rise


Explore Elsweyr, slay Dragons, and complete the upcoming Dragonhold Prologue quest and you’ll unlock amazing new rewards for all Elsweyr players including collectibles, XP buffs, and more!

Dragons over Elsweyr

The Dragon Rise event kicks off on Thursday, October 3, at 10:00AM EDT and runs until Monday, October 14, at 10:00AM EDT. During the event, there are three exclusive rewards up for grabs:

  • Green Dragon Imp pet
  • Grim Harvester Costume
  • Dragon’s Treasure Trove furnishing

A new pet, costume, and furnishing can be unlocked!

The final reward is more than an audacious display of wealth you can place in your home, however. It also features a series of lootable bags that provide all kinds of amazing items, including a new target dummy. However, that’s not all, as during Dragon Rise you can also unlock bonus XP and gold acquisition for the whole Northern Elsweyr zone!

To unlock these rewards, all Elsweyr players must work together to complete different activities and fill the three Dragon Rise meters:

  • Explore Elsweyr and earn the Northern Elsweyr Pathfinder Achievement to unlock the primary rewards
    • Check your in-game Journal for help completing this Achievement
  • Slay Dragons to unlock a zone-wide XP boost (Northern Elsweyr only)
    • Since the Elsweyr Chapter’s release, you’ve already bested over 1 million Dragons, so what’s a few more?
  • Complete the Dragonhold Prologue quests (from October 8) to unlock a zone-wide gold acquisition boost (Northern Elsweyr only)

As you complete the different objectives, you can check everybody’s progress by visiting the Dragon Rise page. If you’ve already unlocked the Northern Elsweyr Pathfinder Achievement, don’t worry, it’ll still count, and you can continue to do your part by participating in the other two objectives.

In addition to unlocking a zone-wide XP boost, slaying Dragons also help increase the donation amount for the #SlayDragonsSaveCats campaign. Help pets in need while you help yourself to bonus XP—a win-win scenario!

Finally, as you defeat Northern Elsweyr’s Dragons and bosses, you have a chance to acquire a Nafaalilargus’s Strongbox as a bonus reward, including items such as crafting materials, style pages, gear sets, and more!
