************** Dragon’s Rise Celebration Event **************
Event Starts: September 1, 2021
Event Ends: Maintenance on September 14, 2021
Required Level: LV80+
The new Perfect World International Anniversary Celebration event is inspired by the Chinese screen wall art "Nine-Dragon Wall". All participants of the event can wake up the nine slumbering dragons on the wall art by "converging dragon energy". When the awakened dragons return to their respective cities, the players can enjoy the ascension with the dragon. When it is completed, the dragon will start a daily celebration event. Meanwhile, a dragon orb in the Dragon's Rise Celebration menu will be lit up.
When all nine dragons are awakened, they will gather at the center of Archosaur City, and will open the entrance to the Cloudtop Dragon Palace, which signifies the peak of the celebration. There will be events in the Cloudtop Dragon Palace, including the Exalted Dragon Gate, Dragon's Wish, and Fireworks Feast, giving players more opportunities of celebration!
