How to debate and question for Marius’ birthday in the Tears of Themis Menagerie des Lumières event

Marius’ birthday event, the Menagerie of Lights, runs from June 14, 2022 through June 25, 2022. It can be accessed from the event button on the home screen and is open to all Lawyers who have completed Marius’ Personal Story 1- 1. Most of the event objectives revolve around conducting field investigations, where you interrogate and debate against participants in the block-building contest. These are event specific and separate from fieldwork. All resources, including Sincere Gifts for the Event Location and unlocking Event Stories, depend on completing Field Investigations.

Many event tasks will require you to debate and ask questions in the Menagerie of Lights. Start by going to the event page and selecting Field Survey. You can conduct 11 surveys per day in groups of four, four and three. These include two to three debates and a question phase, for a total of eight debates and three question phases per day. There is a one-hour downtime between groups of attendees, but you can summon them immediately using the attendee list.

Each debate costs 10 AP and will reward you with card skill level gear. You can only use Marius cards for the main deck and the support deck. The recommended power level is between 23,000 and 45,000 – you can achieve this even with only R cards gathered for this event. Meanwhile, the interrogation stages involve either a quick inspection or a straight move into interrogation. These cost no AP to initiate and contain no debate.

How many field surveys do you need to do for Marius’ birthday?

You need to complete about six days of the event (assuming you complete all 11 investigations per day) to unlock the Marius Birthday Celebration on June 21. This takes into account that you need to buy all the decorations in the venue for 430 Heartfelt Gifts to get the party started. When all the location decorations have been purchased, you will also have completed enough investigations to unlock the event’s final story. After Marius von Hagen’s birthday party is over, you can continue to investigate in the field until the event ends. It’s a great way to farm your card skill level materials.
