Important: The amount of time available for the timed challenges is set and the countdown timer began as soon as the update was released. However, each of the 3 new challenge tasks in the special event is now divided into 5 stages that reward players with a prize for each stage of completion as an extra incentive and acknowledgment of progress made in the challenge.

Completion of the overall Inviolable Prohibition event by finishing all 3 challenge tasks (the 4th is just extra) will award the Player with the Antique Cameo Medal. The new medal will go into the Player's Medals tab in the Casket Icon.
Event Quests and Collection ItemsEdit
The 30 new special event quests consist of 5 collection sequences of 6 quests each. The first 5 quests of each sequence are to find each of the 5 items belonging to one new collection added by the update. The 6th quest is to combine that collection.
Listed below are the 5 collections players must gather to complete the event's quests. note a random artifact fixer is also awarded when a collection is combined for the first time.
|Collection Name||Item Created||Coins Earned||Reward for Completing Collection||Giftable Collection?|
|Faded Grandeur||Black Mirror||0||x10x1||No|
|Summer Vacation||Apple Fountain||0||x15x2||No|
|Scarlet Witch's Treasures||Black Folio||0||x25x2||No|
|Sealing Technique||Vessel of Antimagic||0||x30x1||No|
Once the special event is over, these collection items may be acquired by purchasing the Noblewoman's Trove from the Store. The chest costs 5 rubies and contains 1 random Collection Item and 1 random Fixer from the Inviolable Prohibition special event.
The Sorceress's Pets are the 3 new event creatures/ monsters to be banished.
Banishing the event creatures will award the new Fixers required to combine the new Event Collections. Banish 100 and collect the Citizen's Coin Purses to complete the third stage of the timed challenge. Players may continue banishing the event creatures to achieve a high score on the Top 1000 Banishing Leaderboard.
The new Fixers required to combine the new Event Collections are:
|Fixer||Amount Needed to Complete Quests||How to Obtain||Item(s) Required to Banish Monster||Can be WL/ Sent as Free Gift to Friends?|
|Bubble of Warmth||36||Banish Robber Rabbit||Carrot Cake x1 (won by winning games in Villa Hidden Object Location)||No|
|Sapphire Earrings||36||Banish Robber Rabbit||Carrot Cake x1||No|
|Obsidian Coffret||18||Banish Red Bear||Jar of Honey x2 (won by banishing the 'Robber Rabbit' Monster)||No|
|Lustrous Fabric||10||Banish Twilight Cat||Dog Helmet x3 (won by banishing the 'Red Bear' Monster)||No|
Although obtaining these Fixers sounds complicated, they can all be obtained in exactly the same way. In the end, 58 Carrot Cakes are needed to complete the event quests.
To banish the event creatures, you must first play the new Hidden Object Location Villa until you win some Carrot Cake. You then use these Carrot Cakes to banish the new 'Robber Rabbit' event creature, collecting the Bubble of Warmth and Sapphire Earrings Fixers as you well as the Jars of Honey needed to banish the next event creature 'Red Bear'. Use the Jars of Honey to banish the 'Red Bear', collecting the Obsidian Coffret Fixers and also the Dog Helmets needed to banish the 'Twilight Cat' in order to get the Lustrous Fabric Fixers. Thus, as you play Villa in order to complete the 30 Special Quests and advance towards Virtuoso, you will naturally collect all that you need to create the fixers required to combine the new event collections. Each banishment also awards the Citizen's Coin Purse needed to complete the third part of the event challenge itself.
These creatures will disappear as soon as the event is over, either by the completion of the Inviolable Prohibition challenge or by time running out for the event.
Once the event ends, these Fixers will no longer be winnable. However, the Fixers may be obtained from the Store by purchasing the Noblewoman's Trove. The chest costs 5 rubies and contains 1 random Collection Item and 1 random Fixer from the Inviolable Prohibition special event.
