As the city lights start to flicker and a chilling aridity sweeps across the Shattered Isles, the city of Ramsgate is once again thrust into a period of perpetual darkness. Each year, the cult known as The Unseen grows increasingly restless from hiding in the shadows. This Dark Harvest, the emboldened cultists are finding new ways to expand their influence in the Shattered Isles.
The Nightmare Returns
To this day, Belynda Aeyr still gets shivers down her spine whenever she recalls her brush with The Unseen that fateful night three years ago. Dark Harvest has never been an easy time for the petite bartender, yet she persisted in taking on extra late shifts at the Broken Blade during this busy season. It was no secret that Belynda needed the extra rams to make ends meet.
Tonight, as she cautiously stepped out of the tavern after closing up, she noticed a hooded figure moving surreptitiously in the shadows. Quickening her pace and pulling her cloak closer around her body, Belynda ducked behind a wall and peeked out…
The hooded figure was hunched over behind Granny Strega’s stall. What could it possibly be doing there?
In a bid to amp up recruitment of new cult members, the Unseen have been hiding gifts in six new locations around Ramsgate this year. Find these gifts and complete the rumours to be rewarded with unique Unseen cosmetics. For hints, look out for cryptic clues from the cult on Twitter.
Diabolical cult members have also erected a makeshift ritual area in a dark corner of the city, where mysterious notes and various Unseen paraphernalia can be found. Complete the new quests and rumours outlined on the notes to unlock a variety of limited-time Unseen cosmetics and a free Unseen Neophyte event pass that grants you the full set of Bloodshot armour skins on completion.
Harvest coins are a limited-time currency you can earn and redeem during Dark Harvest.
This year, Honest Ozz is offering a wide variety of exciting curiosities, cosmetics, and valuable resources! That’s right, you can now redeem your Harvest coins for bundles of rams, patrol keys, combat merits, bounty tokens, aethersparks, or tonics.
Here’s how you can get a chance to earn Harvest coins during Dark Harvest:
- Complete event quests.
- Break parts on any Behemoth. (Umbral Behemoths will drop more.)
- Destroy Shrowd effigies in the Hunting Grounds.
- Complete the Unseen Summons event missions.
Also new this year, earn a new title when you satisfy a secret condition during the Unseen Summons mission (Nevermore difficulty), which now features the Bloodshot Shrowd.
