Update 12 july 2013:
The first batch of epic raids will be deployed on the UK version of the game on 8th of August 2013. Most other servers will recieve this batch of epic raids during the same week (5-11 august) depending on your weekly maintenance day.
Based on comments and opinions on the testserver forum, several aspects related to the epic raids feature were adjusted. For example: the Gold Tower is no longer producing gold bars and is now producing Coins instead.
Update 18 june 2013:
As of today the adventures & all related stuff is live on the testserver at tsotesting.com!
These adventures will be tradable and the minimum level requirement has not been decided yet. More information about exact level frames will be presented in the near future. Bear in mind that some words, items and terms such as “fairy-tale adventures” are still work in progress and might change.
The first adventure can be found using your explorers (long adventure search) or you can grab it in the shop. Once the adventure completed succesfully and if you are lucky, you will be rewarded with a follow-up adventure which will continue the story.
