Featured Event
(NOTE: Event has ended)

DEC 23, 2020 – JAN 11, 2021

INTRODUCTION

This Christmas, we will be using Pixel Coins for the event and players will have the option of completing either World Activities or Daily Quests to earn them. The Event Shop will also be removed after the event and players are to finalize and make their purchases before Jan 11, 2021. These changes were made in view of the feedback received for the Halloween Event towards event participation and player engagement as well as the issues involved in last-minute purchases.

To participate in the event, players must first speak to Mrs. Claus in Henesys for a short dialogue and the activation of the ability to possess Pixel Coins. Please note that players can only activate the Coin UI (User Interface) on ONE character from the account, and the main character of the account should be used. Other characters from the account will not be able to view the Coin UI and completing any activities on those characters mentioned below will not grant you Pixel Coins. Do ensure that you begin the event with your main character to avoid any complications for the event. After which, players can access Coke Town via the Dimensional Mirror and begin partaking in activities.

All dates and times mentioned for the event are in GMT +8, please use the
World Time Buddy application for conversion to other timezones.

ACTIVITIES

Pixel Coins will be awarded for completing Daily Quests in Coke Town and/or from existing activities spanning various locations. During each Daily Reset, players will be able to earn up to 600 Pixel Coins and acquisition rates for these coins will, as usual, be up to players to discover. Characters that have acquired access to more endgame content will be able to access activities that grant coins at a higher rate. Pixel Coins granted via bonus activities and/or from the item exchange of 'Christmas Decoration' will not be limited by the Daily Reset limit.

Existing activities that grant Pixel Coins will be classified under two categories, General and Bonus activities.

Event World Boss
A world boss will spawn in a random town at random times of the day. Upon spawning, a game notice will be shown in chat indicating its location. In order to earn rewards, players must inflict a certain amount of damage onto the boss and unite to defeat it entirely. If defeated, players will receive a Holiday Gift Box item in their Gift Drop UI, where opening the Holiday Gift Box will grant a variety of rewards. Any player that did not inflict damage onto the boss will not receive any rewards.

Event Elite Monster
When out hunting or training, keep a lookout for elite monsters! If you're lucky, you might get to see a special elite monster for this event. Eliminating this elite monster will grant you Pixel Coins. (NOTE: Coins acquired from elite monsters are affected by the Daily Limit)

Now it is up to you, the players, to plan your schedule accordingly for maximum efficiency.
