Sanctum Sprint

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.

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 only accessible during some days of the daily activity rotation via Kouris.

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 and Fake Power-Up, Gale, Lightning Rod, or Blinding Light from offensive power ups. Players in first place will only receive Fake Power-Up and Grounded. Players in the farthest half of the racers can receive Light Travel from defensive upgrades and the stronger versions of Gale, Lightning Rod, or Blinding Light from offensive power ups.

Rewards[edit]

The reward is obtainable from a Magnificent Chest at the finish line. You may only claim the reward if you have passed through every checkpoint and have not been sent in by the game to play a practice round. The chest contains:

Frequent Sprinter awards a Loot Bag every 15 races.

Finish[edit]

There are several Fireworks Launchers around the finish area and players can view the mountain from the four cardinal directions from a vista at the center. The launchers will not fire once upon activation, but work like an environmental weapon which grants you the Fireworks skills.
