Learn More About the Event Buff

① Only the most recently obtained event buff will be active, and all other similar buffs will disappear. For example, if you have an active buff from interacting with Lenio and you interact with the Mysterious Knight, then Lenio's buff will disappear and only the Mysterious Knight’s buff will remain active.


② As such, any past similar event buffs (Slippery Scallywags' Shanty, Ynix’s Flame, Sandstorm, etc.) that are active will disappear if you receive this event’s buff by interacting with the Mysterious Knight.


③ If you receive the exact same event buff while it is already active, the buff’s duration will be refreshed. (E.g., If you re-acquire the same buff with 50 minutes remaining, then the duration time will be refreshed to 180 minutes.)

* The details mentioned above also apply to all similar event buffs. (Mysterious Knight, Ynix’s Flame, Sandstorm, Ancient Kyve, Slippery Scallywags' Shanty)
