  2. boosted Red Vaults appeared in each city that has completed at least one Yellow Vault. See the list of cities in the Red VaultRed Vault page.

This event will only occur once.


The CHW Elemental Invasion event is the first annual Anniversary Event. Anniversary Events will be different every year. One Legendary Blueprint will be added during each Anniversary Event.

Blueprints, Cubies, and Resources

  • Elemental cubie blueprints will only drop during the Elemental Invasion Event and then never again. So whatever blueprints drop during the event that's how many will be minted.
  • Elemental cubie recipes require a new Resource type, Elemental Hearts.
    • Elemental Hearts do not drop from the normal Resource Boxes but rather from a new gameplay system to be discovered during the event. Hearts can be collected for free by finding a Monolith. Monoliths (also referred to in-game as a shrine) are showing up on the map for individual players and can be found by following the signal similar to the Buddy Quest signal. The color of the signal will differ based on the element in the Monoliths. While other players do not see the ping, they can still see and interact with the Monoliths of other players. There is a 60 minute timer that starts from the time the Monolith spawns.
      • "Just one hint: the elemental invasion grows stronger over time, so the chance of obtaining elemental hearts will grow as the event progresses!"
  • Special Resources will drop during the event. All Elemental Cubies will need 4 resources each.
    1. Paint
    2. Corresponding Elemental Crystals
    3. Corresponding Elemental Heart
    4. Resin
  • There will be a system in the future that can generate resources from events that never come back.

Elemental Invasion Cubies


Red Vault

The Boosted Vaults during the 2021 Elemental Invasion Event were spawned in cities that have completed their local Cubiecrane to build a Yellow Vault. Only 7 Canadian cities and 6 US cities received the Boosted Vaults during this event. The red boosted vault will only be available for up to 48 hours, but once a player puts a key in it, a 3 hour countdown begins. At the end of 3 hours, the red vault will change to a yellow vault, and will continue every 3 hours to the next tier down until back to its original color.
