War for the Obelisk
What are "Luminous Casks"?
Launched in February 2013 during Tyrannia Plot, Luminous Casks can be found randomly while battling the waves of opponents in the Tyrannia Plot/War. There are different colors of Luminous Casks and they contain different sets of faction related items. You use a Silver Cask Key to open up the Luminous Casks. It is random which item you get from faction set, but you will not get duplicates.
-Once a new wave/cask is released, you can no longer get the older colors of casks.
-You do not need to battle the newest challengers to receive the newest casks. Battling the easiest opponents will still earn you casks when the new colours come out.
