A treasure trove of rewards has found it's way to you but remains tightly locked.
Oh no! It's missing three keys!
When the Trader's Chest appears in your game, it's time to collect, forge and unlock the rewards.
By collecting Charms you'll gain the tools to make keys, but not the ones that will fit your chest. Make a key for another treasure chest and you can swap with other players to capture one of the keys to reach your riches!
What is it?
Trader's Chests contain prizes to collect if you can open the chest before the event ends. Forge and swap chest keys with other players and unlock yours before time runs out!
How do I play?
There are three stages to the Trader’s Chest...
Stage 1 - When you receive your unique Trader’s Chest key design. This means the event has begun! Each key has its own design, based on the Diamond Diaries Charms. Hearts, horseshoes or maybe something else? Check your chest to see the symbol beneath each keyhole.
Stage 2 - Collect the required game Charms from playing levels in the usual way. Use the collected charms to bring the key to life by forging it. You'll know which Charms to collect, as it's on the key, it's also on the lock, so shown to you when the event begins.
Stage 3 - Swap your key with other Diamond Diaries Saga players. Check their progress in collecting charms for their key and if they've completed forging their key, it’s time to swap!
Swapping keys guarantees a match for your chest, so you'll be able to unlock one lock in the quest to reach your reward. Keep forging and swapping, because you’ll need three keys to fully unlock any chest.
How can I check my progress?
You can open the status view for the Trader’s Chest event by tapping the Trader's Chest icon on the game map screen. Here you can check the progress of your Charm collecting and take a peek at the status of other players.
Here you can check the status of each of your three locks, plus the Charms needed to forge your key and open each lock. Check the key design to see the Charm, and look for the Charm type beneath each keyhole.
There are three main phases you and your fellow Traders can be in;
- ‘Collecting’, confirms that the event has begun! Play levels in the usual way and gather the Charms indicated on your key.
- ‘Forging’ confirms that a key is in production. Get ready to swap!
- ‘Ready to exchange/trade’ means it’s time for the key owner to swap with a partner.
The status view will be constantly updated, so check back to see everyone’s progress and how close to those rewards you’ve reached.
What other things should I know?
Collecting charms only occurs when you play new levels in the game. Any charms collected from levels you've previously passed, won't count in the Trader's Chest event.
It's not necessary to win a level in order to collect the Charms. Any Charms collected will be added to your total collection regardless of the outcome of the game. Make sure you do end the level, and whether you win or not, you can be sure the Charms will be counted.
When can I take part?
The Trader's Chest is a time-limited event, so it won't be visible in your game permanently. Keep checking in to play Diamond Diaries and when the collecting starts again, you'll receive an in-game pop-up to let you know.
