Rescue the captive Zephyrites is an event that takes place inside the Abandoned Mine, at Every hour at 5, 20, and 35 minutes after the hour. It is part of the Crash Site (meta event) taking place in Dry Top's Prospect Valley. Players have to find and release the imprisoned Zephyrites before the Inquest shuts the gates.


  • Zephyrites Rescued: x/13
  • Time before Inquest reestablishes gate control: 15:00


Reward tier Experience Karma Coin
Gold 26,670 Experience.png 378 Karma 88 Copper coin
Silver 20,003 Experience.png 284 Karma 66 Copper coin
Bronze 13,335 Experience.png 189 Karma 44 Copper coin
These are the expected rewards for a level 80 player.


Zephyrite crystals will spawn upon releasing a Zephyrite, allowing passage into shielded, or otherwise impassable, locations. The Inquest do not need to be cleared out in order to complete the event, so just focus on releasing the captives before time runs out.






  • Players are teleported outside of the mine upon failure and the gates will remain locked for a period of time.
  • The successor event will occur at the second subsequent 5 minute mark. (e.g. Rescue started at xx:05 mark, if successful, successor starts at xx:15 mark.)
  • There is often confusion for players attempting to complete Sunrise I: The Experimental Daysword for Zephyrite Liberator since there are two mines in Prospect Valley: Prosperity Mine and Abandoned Mine. This is the correct event to unlock Zephyrite Liberator
