Gold Rush 2016 - Genesis Event 1/7

Gold Rush 2017

Event Starts: 4th of November 00:00 UTC 2016

Attention Gold Rush Enthusiasts

The annual Gold Rush event is upon Planet Arkadia again. This year the event comes with outstanding prizes.

The Gold Rush will be run over a course of 7 months, separated into 7 events, each events will last a period of 9 days.​


Hidden within the loots is a set of Event Tokens. These tokens have points allocated to each of them. These points are as follows. (one set of tokens for each instance level)

Cat.1 Event Token - 1 Point
Cat.1 Event Token - 5 Points
Cat.1 Event Token - 10 Points
Cat.1 Event Token - 20 Points
Cat.1 Event Token - 50 Points
Cat.1 Event Token - 100 Points
Cat.1 Event Token - 500 Points
Cat.1 Event Token - 1000 Points
Cat.1 Event Token - 5000 Points

You will need to obtain the "Arkadia Gold Rush Category 1* (2, 3, 4)" mission from the Gold Rush Quest giver first before you will be able to enter the Gold Rush instances. You can enter these instances however many times you like during the Gold Rush and there is no key required to enter, the mission itself acts as the key. Please note, that these tokens cannot be traded. Once these tokens have been looted, the points will be automatically counted towards the mission when you loot any of the "Cat.1 Event Token - 1 Point" from within the instances.

Total score will be calculated based on hourly point averages to derive each participant's 20 hour normalized points.

Example of how it is calculated

Avatar 1
Total points: 2000
Hours: 20
Average points per hour: 100
20 hour normalized score: 2000

Avatar 2
Total points: 3800
Hours: 39
Average points per hour: 97.44
20 hour normalized score: 1948.72

As the event uses normalized score that means that Avatar 1 would win as their normalized score is higher than Avatar 2.

This event is intended for solo hunters. Any attempt at abusing team mechanics or any other Entropia Universe systems or features in order to gain an unfair advantage over other participants will be grounds for disqualification from the event, forfeiture of any prizes, and possible sanctions imposed on one’s Entropia Universe account.


If you abandon the mission at any time during the event, all points will be lost and they will NOT be replaced. You will have to start from scratch. So make sure you decide which category you want to compete in beforehand.

You will have to complete a minimum of 20 hours in the Gold Rush Instances to qualify for winning a prize.​

* Category 1 is only available to avatars with less than 125hp

Example: Someone with 124.9hp can join Category 1, but if you have 125hp you will have to compete in Category 2, 3 or 4.

** if you should loot a token that will increase your points with equal or more points than the threshold for the Neurobiotic Booster is set, you will receive one (1) Neurobiotic Booster immediately and the counter for the next Neurobiotic Booster is reset. (this is a separate counter than the Gold Rush Points counter so your points will not be affected)

Example: You have 87 points in Category 1* then you loot one Cat.1 Event Token - 5000 Points, this will give you one (1) Neurobiotic Booster A10 1mg instantly. So now you will have 5087 points and if you loot another 13 points you will get another Neurobiotic Booster A10 1mg and so on.

With that said, best of luck to one and all. When the event starts it will be announced across all media platforms. So get your equipment ready, load those weapons and get ready for the Gold Rush 2017.
