General Information

Praise be to the Immaculate Machine! It's time for the Secret World Legends Anniversary!

The Anniversary currently consists of the hourly Talos of Gaia raid bosses, the summonable Gatekeeper raid boss, and a plethora of piñatas.

Agartha itself is decorated for the celebration! Balloons aplenty, banners, streamers, and even piñatas can be found throughout the World Tree and its Hollowed Halls. Many of Agartha's inhabitants are dressed for the occasion, a number of them wearing bee sweaters of bee-themed party hats!

Piñatas

Adorable piñatas can be found all throughout the Hollowed Halls of Agartha during the Anniversary event. Colorful custodian and bee piñatas sprout from new growths, the Immaculate Machine providing a plentiful supply of piñatas for all.

To open a piñata, a Piñata Basher must be used. Piñata Bashers can be found nearby the small growths holding the piñatas up. At least three open inventory slots are necessary to pick up a piñata basher. While using the Piñata Basher, the action bar swaps to a single ability.

Piñata Basher

Left Mouse Button: Swing - Swing at a piñata. How else do you expect to get a the goodies inside?

Piñatas reward candies to players once per day alongside a small number of Anima Shards. If a player desires to break multiple piñatas in a day, they will instead receive Anniversary Flares for every piñata after their first.

Piñatas can be found in the following locations around and within the Hollowed Halls:

  • (530,225)
  • (515,210)
  • (545,210)
  • (555,190)
  • (560,190)
  • (600,170,410)
  • (590,205,410)
  • (535,165,410)

When destroyed, players who struck the piñata receive one of the following:

  • 500 - 1000 Anima Shards
  • Honey Drops x5 - Hard candies made from agarthan honey. Increases your out of combat health regeneration rate and creates a trail of anima at your feet. Consumed on use.
  • Honey Stick x5 - A tube of pure agarthan honey. Increases your out of combat health regeneration rate and attracts a swarm of bees. Consumed on use.
  • Festive Candy Chews x5 - Colorful chewy candies. Increases your out of combat health regeneration and creates a burst of confetti.
  • Weapon Skin: Whammo! Baseball bat - Unlocks the Whammo! Baseball bat hammer weapon skin in the Dressing Room.
  • Anniversary Flare Gun x5 - Activates the Anniversary Flare Gun effect. Consumed on use. Only dropped by pinatas on subsequent kills.

The Beehemoth

The Beehemoth is an enormous bee-piñata that only appears when manually spawned at Funcom's discretion. There is no way to trigger the Beehemoth's appearance on your own. When spawned, they appear between the portals to Vibrant Agartha and the Gatekeeper's portion of Deep Agartha (495,240).

Beehemoths must be fought using Piñata basher.

Players among the swarm to defeat a Beehemoth at any given time are awarded the Spoils of the Beehemoth and Title: Beehemoth Slayer.

Daily Login Rewards

Each day during the Anniversary brings with it a unique seasonal Daily Login Reward available regardless of patronage status. Claimable on every character on an account, these rewards are in addition to the normal Daily Login Rewards. There are a set number of rewards and missing a day won't result in missing the reward for that day.

The Talos of Gaia

Initiate the education protocol.

The Immaculate Machine has formed 11 different golems dubbed the Talos of Gaia for her bees. The Talos reside within Vibrant Agartha, waiting for players to come and face them and learn the benefits to defeating such powerful entities in Gaia's name.

Vibrant Agartha is a 40-player Open Raid accessible in Agartha containing a Talos of Gaia raid boss within. Every 00:02 minutes past the hour, the portal to Vibrant Agartha becomes active for 10 minutes. While bosses inside may last after that period of time, no more may enter to face a Talos once those 10 minutes have passed.

The portal to Vibrant Agartha can be found between the Agartha Pad to the Training Grounds and the Transylvania region just outside of the Hollowed Halls (550,250). Players within Vibrant Agartha are buffed with Equal Footing so that their stats are scaled evenly regardless of their levels or item power.

Defeating a Talos of Gaia gives the buff Anima Surge, which allows a player to open a Buzzing Hive within 10 minutes.

All 11 Talos of Gaia have their own associated mission which reward a Genizah of the associated Talos. Each mission has a 30 minute cooldown. It is entirely possible to face the Talos of Gaia multiple times while the Vibrant Agartha portal is open, but rewards will only be given on the first successful kill.

There are no level requirements necessary to enter and face the Talos. A player only needs to have met Jack Boone in Kingsmouth Town in order to participate in the raid.

Animated Particulates

For each Genizah a player opens, they receive 1 Animated Particulate. In addition, the First Time Completion rewards for each Talos' mission itself rewards an Animated Particulate.

When 5 Animated Particulates are used, the player will receive 1 random unowned Shem pet from any of the Talos they have faced prior to the moment of combining Particulates.

When there are no Shems left to receive, using Animated Particulates will instead dissolve and grant 1000 Anima Shards.

The Talos of Gaia Encounter Order

Every hour, a Talos will appear in Vibrant Agartha. Each hour, the particular Talos to appear differs. The Talos appear in order, repeating every 11 hours. Because of this, the time at which each Talos will appear differs each day.

The order is as follows:

  1. Concrete Talos
  2. Stone Talos
  3. Water Talos
  4. Sand Talos
  5. Swarm Talos
  6. Verdant Talos
  7. Magma Talos
  8. Silver Talos
  9. Frost Talos
  10. Clay Talos
  11. Tech Talos

Specific guides for each Talos of Gaia are in-progress!

  • The Talos of Swarms
  • The Talos of Magma
  • The Talos of Silver
  • The Talos of Technology
  • The Talos of Water
  • The Talos of Concrete
  • The Talos of Stone
  • The Talos of Ice
  • The Talos of Sand
  • The Talos of Verdancy
  • The Talos of Clay

The Gatekeeper

The Gatekeeper is a 40-man Open Raid encounter available during the Anniversary Event in Agartha. The portal to The Gatekeeper must be opened using ten shards of corruption filled with hatred and anger acquired from the Genizahs of each Talos of Gaia.

The portal to The Gatekeeper can be found near the Hollowed Halls (500,175), opposite of the portal to Vibrant Agartha. When inactive, the Gatekeeper stands at attention in front of it.

Shards of Corruption

To open the portal to The Gatekeeper's portion of Deep Agartha, 11 Shards of Corruption must be used. Shards of Corruption are rare drops from Talos' Genizahs. Using a Shard consumes it; however, if it is not used to open the portal, the Shard will not be consumed. While 11 Shards are necessary, they need not be in the same instance of Agartha. As long as all 11 Shards are used in the total of Agartha instances, the portal will open.

Using a Shard of Corruption to open the portal will grant the Angry Feet achievement.

Shards of Corruption

  • Aberrant Shard from the Genizah of Ice
  • Agitated Shard from the Genizah of Magma
  • Crazed Shard from the Genizah of Clay
  • Destructive Shard from the Genizah of Stone
  • Irascible Shard from the Genizah of Concrete
  • Irate Shard from the Genizah of Technology
  • Furious Shard from the Genizah of Sands
  • Frenzied Shard from the Genizah of Swarms
  • Frenetic Shard from the Genizah of Silver
  • Roiling Shard from the Genizah of Water
  • Ruinous Shard from the Genizah of Verdancy

Defeating the Gatekeeper rewards the mission, "The Gatekeeper". This mission has a 10 minute cooldown.

The Gatekeeper
An up-to-date guide for The Gatekeeper encounter is coming soon! In the mean time, take a look at the legacy encounter! The mechanics are essentially the same, save for the addition of one more shard needed for the summon.

Buzzing Hive

During the Anniversary event, Buzzing Hives can be claimed alongside seasonal Daily Login Rewards. These honeyed hives can only be opened while affected by the Anima Surge buff acquired from defeating one of the Talos in Agartha. They can contain cosmetics galore!

Buzzing Hive Rewards

The Buzzing Hive bestow their gifts upon a person in a specific order. The first Hive opened will always have the same items unless all items being rewarded are already owned, as may be the case if a character has Legacy cosmetics from TSW.

If all items of a Hive tier are already owned, the following Hive's rewards will be given until there are no new rewards. Any Buzzing Hives opened when all cosmetic rewards are owned by the character opening them will instead reward 2,000 Anima Shards.

The Buzzing Hive rewards will be added to this list as they are discovered. At this time, the full scope of the rewards is unknown.
