Well, if patch notes are apparently not proof enough, then how about something even more obvious? Like the weekly quest in the Bulletin Board which asks you to kill the final captain of the Sky Islands event?

That annoying mage boss is part of that quest that spawned from the rift first part of 5.0.



The only proof really is if someone who said they saw it post a pic of them with that red/orange portal.

No, not that one. There are three quests (names borrowed from Asmo side):
  • Hymn of Aion Scout: Kill 3 common infiltration guards that spawn from killing mobs (formerly elites on the first half of 5.0)
  • Imminent Threat: Kill a guard captain (now elites, they used to be ultimates. This is that mage you saw)
  • Shadow Over Norsvold: Enter Sky Island, access the second phase and kill the boss

That last quest indicates that you need to kill a "Guardian Trooper Captain", which includes 4 different types, all of which say "Infiltrates Norsvold Sky Island with his trooper fleet".

group of 6 killing for 2hours. 810 dymatic mobs killed, spawn 7 sin guards and 4 glad guards but no Rift to Sky Island!

GM if you are reading these posts. You see why you guys need server merged? Is crap like this that is broken and players are not getting rewards from time and effort that we put in. And beside these pvp gear are Archdaeva THEY BREAK!!!

I give up! No support or GM going to reply or try to see if this is broken!

Description:
Vanquish Guardian Trooper Captain (1).
Talk with Piskes.
Kill the Guardian Trooper Captains who have infiltrated Norsvold.

Summary:
From the Wanted Bulletin Board, you accepted a bounty on Guardian Captains.
You killed the enemiy, reported to Piskes and received your reward.


Sounds like those rift that spawns the scout and warrior mob.

Sky Islands are not a region by itself, they are part of Iluma and Norsvold. Not only this is shown by texts, but the literal mapping of the new areas shows it. They have at least two layers, one of which is the main zone, and then, on top, Sky Islands.

When you access Sky Islands, you are defending your region from an invasion from the opposing faction. So, yes, those Elyos guards did infiltrate Norsvold, but on a different location from those on the main area.

Curious, has anyone in NA spawned a rift and/or visited Sky Island that's been verified via photos?

The whole concept interests me but it appears to be more myth than fact.

Default Re: Sky islands

Can anyone create a sky islands thread in korean? Maybe the devs don't speak english, this way they may be able to answer our questions.

There are 5 mentions in 5.3 patch notes about how to get to it(once it's open), but no information about how to open the rift.
