Dig for Buried Relics!
  • Posted by Ian
  • Posted on February 12, 2013, 12:18 am NST

UPDATE: Guides are now up for the Mysterious Dig Site (including prize lists) and NC Scanning for Buried Relics!

Looks like as of midnight we can now dig at the Mysterious Site! You can dig once per fifteen minute increment, :00 - :14, :15 - :29, :30 - :44 and :45 - :59 past the hour, and can collect up to 20 items per day from the digging.



As if this wasn't enough, this is also the start of a brand new NC Mall event, Scanning for Buried Relics! For this, you will need to purchase one of the Tyrannian Scanoscope packs, and each day you can get a new NC item!




Have any thoughts on either of these? Hit up the comments or head on over to the Jellyneo Forums and chat about it with us!

  • What is Scanning for Buried Relics?
    Scanning for Buried Relics is an NC Mall event where you can scan the Tyrannian digging site daily to uncover NC item prizes! Visit the NC Mall to purchase your Tyrannian Scanoscopes (sold in packs of 1, 5, and 14). Once you activate your Scanoscopes, visit the Buried Relics page to uncover hidden treasures and help in the digging efforts!

  • How long can I scan for buried relics?
    Tyrannia Scanoscopes will be on sale from February 12 through February 25, 2013. You can participate any time within that period by purchasing Tyrannian Scanoscopes in the NC Mall. The digging site will always be available for you to uncover your hidden items.

  • How do I purchase Tyrannian Scanoscopes?
    Visit the NC Mall to purchase your Tyrannian Scanoscopes in packs of 1, 5, and 14. The number of Tyrannian Scanoscopes in the pack represents the number of relics you can scan to receive an NC item prize. Once you have purchased your Tyrannian Scanoscopes, be sure to activate them in your inventory before visiting the Buried Relics site to claim your prizes.

  • How do I activate my Tyrannian Scanoscope?
    To activate your Tyrannian Scanoscope, visit your inventory, click on your Tyrannian Scanoscope, and select "Activate Tyrannian Scanoscope Pack." After you activate your Tyrannian Scanoscopes visit the Buried Relics dig site to start uncovering treasures!

  • Can I scan the same dig area more than once?
    No, unfortunately you can only scan each area once for every account.

  • Can I scan on days that have passed?
    Yes, prizes can be collected on days that have passed or on that day. Simply click on the day you would like your relic prize and apply your Tyrannian Scanoscope.

  • Is there a time limit to applying a Scanoscope and collecting my daily prize?
    There really isn't a time limit for collecting your daily prizes, but the sooner the better so you can enjoy them! If you activated and have remaining Tyrannian Scanoscopes, you will be able to return to the page to claim your prize as long as the Buried Relics page is still accessible.

  • I purchased Tyrannian Scanoscopes, why can't I uncover any relics?
    Did you activate your Tyrannian Scanoscopes? To activate your Tyrannian Scanoscopes, visit your inventory, click on your Tyrannian Scanoscopes, and select "Activate Tyrannian Scanoscope Pack." After you activate your Tyrannian Scanoscopes, visit the Buried Relics dig site to start uncovering treasure!

  • Can I give Tyrannian Scanoscopes to another user?
    Yes, Tyrannian Scanoscopes are like any other Neocash item and are giftable via an NC Gift Box (one item per NC Gift Box).

  • Can I participate in the buried relics digging on my side account(s)?
    Yes, you can participate in the buried relics digging on your side accounts.

  • I'm trying to activate additional Tyrannian Scanoscopes, why isn't it working?
    Please keep in mind that you will only be able to claim prizes each day once on each account. If you have already activated up to 14 Tyrannian Scanoscopes, you will not be able to activate anymore. An exception to this is if you activate more packs in order to reach 14 Tyrannian Scanoscopes activated. For example, if you activated a 5-pack and then a 1-pack, you will be able to activate a 14-pack in order to reach 14 activations. Unfortunately extra activations cannot be redeemed or returned as you can only collect up to 14 prizes, one each day in this event.

The Mysterious Obelisk Emerges!
  • Posted by Terry
  • Posted on February 14, 2013, 2:21 pm NST

Thanks to all of you, we've successfully dug out this Mysterious Obelisk!



Any predictions as to what's going to happen next? What do all those symbols mean? Are those doors? Is this a Tyrannian TARDIS? What is that weird light? Why so many questions?

Sound off in the comments, chat about it on the forums and stay tuned to JN for more plot news, because we're pretty certain there's more just around the corner!

Video Trailer in Tyrannia!
  • Posted by Rylon
  • Posted on February 15, 2013, 12:15 am NST

Head on over to the Mysterious Dig Site to be greeted with a shiny new button ... revealing a video trailer to watch!



The first thing you'll probably notice is that the ever-lovable Kanrik is involved, as the trailer is surrounding the Thieves Guild, and their attempt to own/secure/sell the Obelisk before anyone else!

There is also a hint at the potential possibility to join the Thieves Guild (or another faction, if more are revealed) at some point. We'll keep you posted once we know more!

Looks like new Battledome challengers are now confirmed to be in the pipeline for this Tyrannia event! A user on the Neoboards has reported that during a glitchy Battledome fight, a mysterious opponent named "Thief 1" appeared as the challenger. See the screenshot below.


More updates to come as we find more information!
