On the weapon side, Yelan’s bow, the five-star Aqua Simulacra, will headline 2.7’s Epitome Invocation (weapon banner, in plainspeak). A new four-star bow called Fading Twilight will also show up, though it’s a free weapon tied to one of the patch’s new events. Then, the Redhorn Stonethresher claymore will be boosted in the second half.

The first announced event is the Perilous Trail, which takes place in The Chasm. This will see a dungeon for players to fight through the levels of, with increasing difficulty. Players will be rewarded with an exclusive four-star Bow, the Fading Twilight. This will be part of the new Archon Quest.

Second is another Chasm-centric event: A Muddy Bizarre Adventure. A strange mud has taken over the chasm and has caused monsters to become even stronger. Travelers must clear it out.

Rumours of Itto's musical event were correct - there will be the Almighty Arataki's Great and Glorious Drum Along Festival, a rhythm game that will gift players with a drum and some cool rewards, including piles of Primos.
