Grand Prizes
Evolution of the Phoenix

The ‘Grand Prizes’ work quite differently in this event compared to events in the past. The mechanics work similarly to how they did for Carnival, but with a twist.

3 new buildings are won quite easily, right away in fact after completing the first 3 sequential quests.

The true ‘grand prizes’ offered in this event are the items used to make one of those 3 buildings far more powerful: Phoenix Artifacts.

Phoenix Artifacts can be used to evolve the special Phoenix buildings to more powerful stages. Learn more about the Phoenixes on the Evolving Buildings page.

Summary

WINNING GRAND PRIZES

Every 20 feathers earn another grand prize.

The screen will update with each feather you earn to show your progress towards the next prize. You can also see the next couple of prizes queued.

The grand prizes are a mix of Phoenix Artifacts and expiring buildings. A Phoenix Artifact is offered as every other choice among a rotation of:

The rotation repeats for as many grand prizes as a player can win. After a large number (20) of grand prizes are won, the number of feathers needed increases to 30 per grand prize.

The prize that you receive is based on the chapter you are in when it is placed into your inventory.

You MUST complete the
first research of a chapter
in order to be considered as
being “in” that chapter!


Once you’ve accepted the prize into your inventory, its value will not change. This is still true even if you have not yet placed it in your city.

For more details about benefits offered by each building by stage and by chapter, be sure to check out the Evolving Buildings page.

HOW MANY ARTIFACTS CAN BE WON?

It is never guaranteed to receive all of the rewards available, even if all of the quests are finished. There are always some elements of strategy and luck involved.

NOTE: The following analysis does NOT include the additional Sky Essence now available with the 20 new quests added 4/24. The 20 new quests add a total of 1300 possible Sky Essence, which could equate to 1, possibly even 2 additional Phoenix Artifacts.

OVERVIEW

The average player with average luck who completes all quests will be able to expect to win about 6 Phoenix Artifacts for a stage 7 Phoenix. More than this will require far above average daily collections around the city and/or investing in additional event currencies.

6 Phoenix Artifacts

OPPORTUNITY

Adding all of the Sky Essence that will be available in quests and from around the city, we can estimate how many Artifacts we can expect to be able to win.

Modest daily pickup assumption; assumes 12 per day.

High daily pickup assumption; assumes 20 per day.

COST

The first artifact costs 20 feathers, and then each additional costs essentially 40; 20 for the next expiring building in the rotation, and then 20 for the next artifact.

When we examine the costs of each chest, the feathers paid, and then adjust for the probability of winning some extra sky essence as a chest prize, we find the average cost of a singe feather is approximately 23.2 Sky Essence.

From there we can calculate how many grand prizes we can win based on how many Sky Essence we can obtain.

Modest daily pickup assumption

Divided by 2, but rounding up since an Artifact is the first prize, one can expect 5-6 Artifacts with modest daily Sky Essence collections.

High daily pickup assumption

Divided by 2, but rounding up since an Artifact is the first prize, one can expect at least 6, maybe 7 Artifacts with above average daily Sky Essence collections.

ESSENCE COLLECTION

Once you log in to your city after the event starts, Sky Essence will begin dropping at an average rate of 1 per hour.

6 is the most that can accumulate at once, however. Essence will continue to drop hourly, but only the most recent 6 will remain for collection.

If you are regularly collecting them, and never letting them max out at 6, you can collect quite a lot in a single day.

16-18 is a rather high goal, but not unreasonable; 3 times per day. Once right away in the morning, and then twice more 6 and 12 hours later.

1, 2, or 3 Sky Essence can be collected from each one, but of course receiving only 1 is far more frequent.

COLLECT MORE SKY ESSENCE

As with previous events, an offer is presented early on in the event to purchase a special building that will add 1 Sky Essence each time one is collected from around the city.

This can add quite a bit of value; even if only collecting Sky Essence 2 times a day, 12 additional daily Sky Essence adds up to quite a bit over the course of the event. Having this building could mean being able to obtain one additional artifact more than what could be obtained without it.
