Sanctum Sprint is an activity located in Labyrinthine Cliffs. The race features the use of the aspect skills and power-ups to disable enemies and protect yourself as you fight to make your way to the top of the mountain. A matchup feature allowing players to compete with others of similar skill level is used in Sanctum Sprint. Frequent Sprinter awards a Loot Bag every 15 races.

Access[edit]

During the Festival of the Four Winds it can be accessed by talking to the Zephyrite[Sanctum Sprint] on the high cliffs near the air ship in Zephyr Sanctum. Otherwise the race is/was only accessible via the Daily Activity Participation.

Crystals[edit]

Small blue crystals refill 10% of the player's endurance, allowing them to use Light Dash more often. Orange crystal grant 3 seconds of swiftness and vigor. The aspect crystals are present provide one charge of the augmented aspect skill, which means doubling the height of Leap and the range for Light Dash and Lightning Pull. Using the augmented variants of skills does not affect the cooldown of the standard skill nor does the augmented Light Dash consume endurance.

Power ups[edit]

There are two types of power ups, defensive and offensive. Players will receive Aspect Master or Grounded from defensive power ups. Players will receive Fake Power-Up, Gale, Lightning Rod, or Blinding Light from offensive power ups. Players can receive Light Travel from defensive or offensive upgrades if they are 9th placeor farther behind.

Reward[edit]

The reward is in the Magnificent Chest at the finish line.

During Festival of the Four Winds

During Cutthroat Politics

Finish[edit]

After the finish line, players will receive a reward from a Magnificent Chest. There is a Fireworks Launcher next to the finish line and players can view the mountain from the four cardinal directions from a vista at the center. The launcher will not fire once upon activation, but work like an enviromental weapon which grants you the Fireworks skills.
