The Midsummer Island Adventure started with update 1.6 and will end on June 28, 2021, server time. Before you can participate in the event, you have to be at least Adventurer Rank 21 or above, finish Prologue: Act III and have finished Klee's story quest. You will get a quest called "Mysterious Islands: Journey to the Unknown" which you have to complete to unlock the new Archipelago region.

Act I- Main Cannon, Make Ready... Fire!

Knock enemies off the platform using the heavy cannon of your Waverider.

As you arrive at the Golden Archipelago Island, you find a Waverider that can help you travel across the Islands. Aside from facilitating travel, the Waverider can also launch an attack that will destroy enemies and towers. Some enemies are protected by a barrier, and you have to target the explosive barrels around their tower to bring the barrier down. Defeating enemies and destroying towers will give you Flotsam, which can help you complete the challenge and buy items in the event shop.

You can also get a speed boost if you navigate your Waverider through the Wavefront Girdles, so take advantage of them to get to the finish line quickly. You can also defeat enemies using the heavy cannon of your Waverider to get more Wavesplitter Insignias, further increasing your score.
