The event starts today with the registration phase** and will last until May 16, allowing players to face this challenging boss***  over the course of the weekend and  check their position on the leaderboard on Monday. Before ‘Tournament of Valor starts, dragoneers are divided into different tiers based on their level. Each Dragoneer has two fixed attempts to challenge the boss and gain  rewards. Dragoneers can compete in their groups and be ranked according to the highest damage in a single challenge.


Samol and Jale, the brand new heroes
