Playing Sunshine Seeker

In Sunshine Seeker, participants are tasked with retrieving shards of sunshine. Players are reduced to level 1 for the duration of the event, and a time limit will display at the top of the screen. Try to collect as many shards of sunlight as you can within three minutes by examining the shards resting on the ground.


Some of Babban's erstwhile companions roam the area, and if they attack you you will receive an NPC-specific penalty.

Abenzio: Lose some shards of sunlight
Bryher: Suffer from the effects of weight (decreased movement speed)
Camlin: Lose some shards of sunlight.
Darach: Reduces remaining time by fifteen seconds
Babban's Progeny: Lose some shards of sunlight

Skillfully avoiding these NPCs is the key to succeeding in Sunshine Seeker.


Babban Ny Mheillea will be pleased to accept any shards you may have collected. Note that all shards you have collected will disappear if time runs out or you leave the area.

She will then provide you with seeds in exchange for shards you give her. These seeds can be exchanged for items or used to participate in a mini lottery. If you participate in the lottery a certain number of times, you will earn the right to participate in a special lottery that awards of a variety of rare prizes.
