A favorite game of many, Alchemy Stars, is now celebrating the winter holidays with a new event that introduces new Aurorians and summon mechanics to the game. The popular tile-based RPG went big on the event, featuring not only a new standard event, but also tons of log in rewards and even a mini quiz event.
In this article, you can find everything you need to know about the Sands of Time event in the game, which is currently underway.
The Sands of Time Event
Part one: December 23 - January 10
The first part of the event, Northland Journey, starts on December 23, and is a classical event which uses event-exclusive Action Points. One Action Point recovers every four hours, and players can store a maximum of 30 AP.
Part two: December 28 - January 10
The second part, Trial of the Aurora, is just like Northland Journey, but it has slightly more challenging stages that become available on December 28th. This part of the event will feature exclusive character backstories, for the new Aurorians in the game: Bethlehem, Novio, and Lola.
Once a player has cleared all these event stages, they will be rewarded with 2000 Lumamber and 2 Special Star Flares.
Lake Mirror Codeword
Running from: January 4 - January 13
This is a minigame that will test the game knowledge of each Navigator. Every single day, a new question will become available, and players have 3 tries to get it right. By answering 7 daily questions correctly, players will earn an additional 420 Lumamber!
The Cedar Market
Running from: December 23 - January 13
Each time a player completes a stage of the event, they will earn an event exclusive currency, Mistletoe. The Mistletoe (event currency) collected during the event can be exchanged in the Cedar Market for rewards such as Special Star Flares, furniture, Aurorian breakthrough materials, and a new free unit, Lola as well as her Solambers.
Lola will only be available via the Cedar Market, so if you plan on expanding your Aurorian collection, make sure you don’t miss your chance!

Even more rewards will be available to players who log in and reach 60 Activity Points between January 6 and January 13, which grant them an additional 600 Lumamber and Aurorian upgrade materials.
New Aurorian outfits
All throughout the event, a number of new outfits for some player-favourite Aurorians will also become available. These outfits are:
- The Stoic Coachman outfit (Nails) - obtained from 1 Free Special Event Book
- Night to Remember outfit (Areia) - obtained from 1 Paid Special Event Book
- Mirror Mirror outfit (Victoria) - obtained from the in-game store
- Naughty or Nice outfit (Gronru) - obtained from the Christmas Discount Pack
Revamped recruiting mechanics
Navigators who aim to summon a specific, featured 6-Star Aurorian will now have an easier time, since the gacha mechanics have been revamped. Each 2 summons that result in a non-featured 6-star Aurorian, will add up to the pity gacha, and the 3rd summon (the next one) that results in a 6-star Aurorian, will grant a guaranteed featured unit.
Special Event Book Phase 4
Players who have completed stage 1-16 of the Main Story, now have access to the Special Event Book Phase 4, being able to unfold even more of their favourite Aurorians’ stories.
