The Great Excavation, is the sequel to the Buried City event, and it runs from February 23rd to March 14th. In this event, Barchanni returns to urge us to uncover the statues of his city's founders, Asim and Ashni. This is a tile style event, where we must uncover tiles on the prize claim board. First we exchange provisions (event currency) for tools: Shovels to uncover one tile, Bottled Wind to uncover one column of tiles, and Vacuum Vials to uncover a 9x9 Square of tiles. Buried in sand, are: free tools to use to uncover tiles, Amuni knowledge to use to advance along the Grand Prizes progress, and Treasures, which offer a variety of rewards including a chance at the daily prizes. This event offers the Ancient Promise set as a reward; most of the pieces are located in the Grand Prize lane.
