The Ember Court, Venthyr Weekly Activity
This page is meant to introduce and guide you through the Venthyr covenant weekly activity, the Ember Court. Inside you will find details on how this activity works, its rewards and how to obtain them.
How to unlock the Ember Court
Begin by unlocking the Ember Court through your Covenant's Anima Reservoir. You can also upgrade it as you get more Anima and Redeemed Souls over time:
|Court Unlock||1500 Reservoir Anima + 6 Redeemed Souls||1 Hour|
|Butler Helper||5000 Reservoir Anima + 12 Redeemed Souls||12 Hours|
|Third Guest Invite||10000 Reservoir Anima + 22 Redeemed Souls||24 Hours|
|Fourth Guest Invite||12500 Reservoir Anima + 40 Redeemed Souls||24 Hours|
|Specialist Staff||15000 Reservoir Anima + 70 Redeemed Souls||24 Hours|
Although the prices rise steeply as you advance through the upgrades, each new advancement brings significant benefits, which will make earning all the rewards related to this event much quicker.
Planning your Ember Court Event
Because you can only do it once per week, it is important to plan ahead in order to maximize the rewards you can get from the Ember Court.
The first step is deciding which guests to invite. Because each guest has unique party atmosphere preferences, you should try to invite guests which have similar tastes, in order to be able to focus on those tastes during the party itself and still end up pleasing both.
You will also be able to choose multiple options of refreshments, entertainment, security and decor before the event starts, with each choice boosting the party atmosphere in specific ways described on the choice menu. You should look to pick options that will boost the atmosphere in the ways your guests prefer, in order to get a head start on getting the best rewards.
Ember Court Noblegarden Theotar Egg Hunt Event
During the Noblegarden Easter celebrations, there will be a special event available inside the Ember Court scenario: Theotar's Egg Hunt.
This event can be started by picking up Theotar's Egg Basket, which you can find in the north area of the scenario, and is marked on your map.
Once you pick the Basket, the egg locations will be marked on your map as well, and you can pick them up even during the preparation phase. Turn them at their respective NPCs to gain one of several buffs:
- Prince Renathal's Egg increases guest reputation gains by 300%.
- Temel's Egg extends the current Court phase time limit by 5 minutes; ideally you want to turn this during the party itself.
- Theotar's Egg improves the happiness of all current guests.
- Lord Garridan's Egg increases damage done by 50% and reduces damage taken by 50%.
Because of Prince Renathal's Egg, any Court scenarios completed using this buff are worth multiple weeks of reputation, making it a must if you are behind on reputation!
Completing the Ember Court Event
Once you are ready, talk with Temel, in area above Sinfall (your Covenant sanctum) and take on his quest, The Ember Court to begin preparations. Once this quest is completed, you can talk to him again in order to start the scenario itself, which will take around 15 minutes in total.
- The first, Last-Minute Preparations gives you 60 seconds to start interacting with NPCs and objects around the area in order to change the party atmosphere.
- The second stage, The Court represents the party itself where many random events will occur, all of which influence the atmosphere. You can interact with many of the events, but make sure to look at the reward from completing the event before turning it in, as doing so might change the atmosphere in a negative way towards the preferences of your guests.
- Finally, once the timer ends you will be awarded Tribute from each of your guests, which contains loot based on how well you were able to please them. Do well and you will receive mounts, weapon transmog, extra reputation and pets. Fail to do so, and you might only get grey items, and not of the valuable kind.
After you are done, you can immediately start preparing for the following week's party, but will not be able to start it until the weekly reset.
