War for the Obelisk
Scanning for Buried Relics
What is "Scanning for Buried Relics"?
Launched in February 2013 during Tyrannia Plot, Scanning for Buried Relics is the NC Challenge for the current plot.
How do I participate?
You can buy Tyrannian Scanoscope packs at the NC Mall. There are packs for 1, 5, or 14 Tyrannian Scanoscopes. If you buy the larger packs, it is cheaper than buying separate packs. You may also participate in Scanning for Buried Relics on side accounts. For more information, see the FAQ below.
How do I activate my Tyrannian Scanoscopes?
After purchasing your ticket at the NC Mall, go to your inventory and activate your Tyrannian Scanoscope pack. Then visit the Scanning for Buried Relics page to collect your item.
For each day, a new lock will become available. If a lock is available, it will no longer look greyed-up, and will change to colored question mark.
What kind of prize do the Tyrannian Scanoscopes give out?
That's the surprise, isn't it? The contents should be "exclusive NC item prizes", not items that are regularly available for sale in the NC Mall.
The regular prizes for the Tyrannian Scanoscopes are shown below:

Did you activate your Tyrannian Scanoscopes?

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.
