Easter 16 title.png


Become a master slinger in the event "Trial of the Slingers". During this event you will be a master slinger, teaching young Greeks the art of wielding the slingshot. A tradition of Greek families is to pass on their war stories to the next generation, and now it is up to you to prepare the new heroes to be battle ready.

During the event, you will instruct your scholar to shoot 3 different types of pottery which are placed on the event screen. By breaking one piece of pottery you gain Shards which you can trade for mighty rewards. Additionally, you receive honor points that go towards the daily ranking. At the end of the day, the top ranked player of the daily ranking receives an exclusive reward. You can also achieve the community goals with honor points. All players in your world must collect honor points together over the duration of the event to unlock very rare effects that will be activated in everyone's cities.


The Trial

On the first event screen you can see the three different types of pottery your scholar can shoot at. Each different type is marked with a symbol

Type of pottery Symbol Collection item
Yellow pottery Easter 16 button yellow.png Easter 16 yellow egg.png
Orange pottery Easter 16 button orange.png Easter 16 orange egg.png
White pottery Easter 16 button white.png Easter 16 white egg.png

Simply click on a target symbol to shoot a stone. You will receive from 2 to 20 Honor Points and Shards at random. In addition to this, you may also find bonus loot. Each piece of pottery you shoot will cost you one stone from your ammo pouch, and every day you get 10 stones for free.

Stones & Ammo pouch

Stones are used by your scholar to shoot at pottery. You can hold a maximum of 10 stones at any time in your ammo pouch. You can receive additional stones in three different ways:

  • At midnight every day, your ammo pouch will be replenished to 10 stones.
  • You can sometimes find a stone as bonus loot when shooting at pottery.
  • You can choose to purchase 5 stones with gold.

New Targets & Hit Display

You get 15 new targets every day at midnight for free and when you shoot all pieces of pottery on the field. You can also refresh the targets by simply clicking the “New targets” button on the battlefield which costs a few Shards. Using the New Targets button is a tactical approach which can be beneficial in a number of situations, for example:

  • Use the New Targets button if you are attempting to complete a specific collection. For example, you are trying to complete the White Eggs collection and have broken all pieces of white pottery on the field.
  • You have shot all of the high value targets on the field, and want another chance to earn some more Honor Points or Shards.

The Hit Display shows the amount of Shards and Honor Points that are received when shooting a target. The golden broken pottery shows which point values you have already earned from the current field. The grey broken pottery marks the point value of the previous pottery you shot.

Shards & Shop

Shards are earned by shooting pottery. For every shot, you receive between 2 and 20 Shards.

The Shard Shop allows you to trade your hard earned Shards for a number of different rewards. These rewards will then either be stored in your normal inventory or you can choose to activate them instantly. The cost of rewards vary based on the type of reward.

This time there is no necessity to spend all your Shards during the event time because the shop will open again for some time after the event ends. So stay tuned and visit our forum for more info.

Bonus Loot

Every time you break a piece of pottery you have a chance to find special loot. This can range from an extra stone to an egg which forms a part of one of the egg collections. The stone can be used to shoot another piece of pottery. The color of the egg you earn will be based on the pottery type you shoot.

Egg Collections

There are three different egg collections. Each collection is made up of 10 eggs. You can find the eggs by breaking pottery on the main event screen. Completing a collection will reward you with unique effects, and a special award for each collection. There is a unique award granted to the first player of each world to complete one of the collections. (see List of Awards) To get an egg of a chosen collection, shoot on the corresponding pottery type.

Community Score (Honor Points)

Daily Ranking (Honor Points)

As soon as you receive your first Honor Points for the day, you will be listed in the daily ranking. The player ranked first at the end of the day will earn an award as well as a reward effect. Every day at 8pm Server Time the ranking gets evaluated and reset. The rewards get handed out as soon as the evaluation is finished.
