Arcane Pentournament is a special, limited time event by DragonVale which required players to collect rings and trade them at the Prize Pavilion to receive rewards.

rings needed to be collected and traded at the ?. Each reward required a certain amount of rings to be traded in to be earned. There were five houses containing prizes.

Blazing Gale
Would you like to join Blazing Gale? You cannot join another House once this choice is made!
Choosing to join the Blazing Gale will grant you:

Elements: Air and Fire
Motto: "Unscorched, Untethered, Untroubled"
Characteristics: passionate, forgiving, scattered
Notable Alumnus: Pi Roh, expert caster of magical fireworks
With a House name like "Blazing Gale," you might imagine a trubulet group quick to ignite, but this school's students are generally an easygoing bunch. They might get fired up once in awhile, but conflicts tend to blow over as quickly as they erupt.

Hidden Bolt
Would you like to join Hidden Bolt? You cannot join another House once this choice is made!
Choosing to join the Hidden Bolt will grant you:

Elements: Dark and Lightning
Motto: "Sparking Curiosity"
Characteristics: risk-taking, cunning, mischevious
Notable Alumnus: Anne T. Matre, Rift explorer (other alumnus proved difficult to locate)
The House of the Hidden Bolt has a bit of a reputation around the Vale. Some say those who belong to this House practice dark magic... and they're right! No, not *that* kind of dark magic - elemental dark magic, which is more like conjuring shade on sunny days or hiding piles of robes that need laundering. Combine that with studies in lightning magic and a penchant for mischief making, and it's easy to see why sparks fly between this House and its fellows.

Icy Torrent
Would you like to join Icy Torrent? You cannot join another House once this choice is made!
Choosing to join the Icy Torrent will grant you:

Elements: Cold and Water
Motto: "We Do Not Sink"
Characteristics: powerful, courageous, adamant
Notable Alumnus: Wimbledrip Blunderpond, inventor of water-and-frost-resistant wand
The House of the Icy Torrent means business. Give any Icy Torrent student a problem, and she or he will unleash a flood of solutions. Some say that the Icy Torrents can come off as a little cold, but that's likely a freezing spell gone rogue.

Iron Blossom
Would you like to join Iron Blossom? You cannot join another House once this choice is made!
Choosing to join the Iron Blossom will grant you:

Elements: Metal and Plant
Motto: "Sown and Forged"
Characteristics: crafty, adaptable, dependable
Notable Alumni: Shi Nee, treasure tracker and metal magic expert, and Verdant Thumbe, creator of ValeGro magical fertilizer
Members of the House of the Iron Blossom are among the cleverest in the Vale, able to weave their way around tangled issues and hammer out productive solutions. Given their malleable personalities, you can always count on an Iron Blossom student to find an opportunity for growth when put under pressure.

Mountain Sun
Would you like to join Mountain Sun? You cannot join another House once this choice is made!
Choosing to join the Mountain Sun will grant you:

Elements: Earth and Light
Motto: "Strong and Shining"
Characteristics: practical, cheerful, resilient
Notable Alumni: T. Erra and Tsu Nee, both seated on the Official Committee for Keeping the Vale Islands Afloat (But Not Too Close To the Sun)
Students of the House of the Mountain Sun are known for their positive, grounded dispositions. No matter what happens, Mountain Sun students always stand tall and look on the bright side of things. You might say they're the peak of optimism!

Arcane Pentournament started with a tutorial explaining how the event will work.

The process of this tutorial can be viewed in the gallery to the right.

The tutorial took a few minutes to complete from beginning to end, but players received Ring 100 as a goal completion reward after completing the tutorial.


Reward Completion

When enough rings were collected they were able to be traded in for rewards. Upon receiving a reward a message card popped up.

Players were able to select which reward they wanted in what ever order they wished. There were six phases of rewards, each starting about two weeks after the previous phase. Each phase added new rewards for players to choose from. 

Throughout the event, players were also able to make a wish by tossing a coin into the Wishing Well. This was counted towards a community total. As the event continued, the bar on the well filled up, and on September 1, 2015, all players who had participated in the event were rewarded with the Wishing Well as a prize, as well as one "wish", as a "special gift from Backflip Studios". This allowed the player to claim a single item from an extended market, including many limited content.

After the Wishing Well was collected, players were no longer able to make a wish at the well on ?.


Backflip Studios FAQ Help Tent

At the start of the Arcane Pentournament Backflip Studios posted a FAQ guide on their Web site here.

Below are images of the entire FAQ guide, and the videos in it are in the gallery section of this page:
