Kumuki's Daring Rescue

Ember and friends have returned to Atreia seeking assistance on defeating the Kumukis once again. Their prized Porgus, Poppy, is looking at impending doom without the assistance from the Daevas! You will need to infiltrate the Kumuki Cave alone and save all the Porguses before they are turned into Porgus BBQ. Hansel and Gretel will give out prizes to Daevas for each Porgus they are able to rescue.

- How To Participate -

In the Capital Cities you’ll find Gretel the Mischievous looking for the assistance of any level 46+Daeva willing to help. She has a carriage that will send you to the Kumuki Cave where Hansel the Troublemaker is waiting to tell you how you can help.

Once inside, Hansel will inform you that the Porguses are being held in cages at the end of the cave, and you only have 15 minutes before it’s time for dinner! Opening the gate will transform you into a Shabby Kumuki which also grants two special abilities. You can also grab a Shabby Kumuki Transformation Scroll from the Supplies Box next to Hansel if you need it.

Fear Grenade

Causes the target to be feared and disappear.

Stink Bomb

Causes a group of Kumukis to be temporarily paralyzed.

You’ll need to use these abilities to progress through the cave in a stealthy manner avoiding the Kumuki’s line of sight. Throughout the cave you’ll also discover objects that you can use to disguise yourself and remain undetected. However, if you’re detected too many times, the butcher will be alerted and kill the Porguses before you get there.

As you make your way through the cave, you’ll need to keep an eye out for four Key Chests, which contain the keys required to save the individual Porguses. Also hidden in the cave is a Suspicious Box which has the key to open the Kumuki Crate at the end.

Looking for a bit of experience while saving the Porguses? Be on the lookout for three Nutritious Ginseng that can be found in the cave. Killing them will grant EXP so be sure to end their fleshy rooted lives if you have time! Ember also has a quest for those that wish to defeat the Nutritious Ginseng, so be sure to pick that up before heading inside. You can also choose to kill the Kumuki inside for EXP, but doing so will cause the Porguses to meet with a terrible fate.

For each Porgus you save you’ll earn one Poppy’s Gift Bundle (but only if you talk to them after opening the cage door), and an additional one if you open the Kumuki Crate (remember to find that special key!). Each Poppy’s Gift Bundle will yield a random amount of Poppy’s Letters as well as other items. Ember is eagerly seeking these letters as they contain secret information about how to defeat the Kumukis. You can exchange the letters, Spinel Medals, and (sometimes) AP, with Ember for various prizes.

On the store you’ll be able to purchase Bonus Entry Scrolls to go as many times as you wish!

- Rewards -

For the full list of rewards, please visit the forums here.

Ember, along with Hansel and Gretel, only have three weeks before they need to return home, so be sure to help the Porguses while there’s still time. Kumuki’s Daring Rescue runs from August 8 to August 29.

2018 Summer Block Party

Starting July 25, a heatwave will overcome Atreia, but thankfully a Summer Block Party is here to cool down all Daevas. In the capital cities you’ll find the festive Daeva & Beach Bar with accompanying guests and bartenders to party with. If the heat gets to be too much to bear, you’ll be able to cool down and crack open Ice Blocks with Ice Picks to create an Ice-Hot Box, and probably impress a few watching Daevas too. Inside the Ice-Hot Box you’ll find scorching hot rewards. The Bartender also has some free drinks granting some helpful stats and courage.

Part One: Ice Blocks & Ice Picks for Level 30+

Every party needs ice, so thankfully you’ll be able to find Bags of Ice chilling inside of instances for Daevas level 30 or higher. Bags of Ice can also be found in the following zones: Cygnea, Enshar, Levinshor, Kaldor, Iluma, Norsvold. If you find a Bag of Ice you can open it to receive either an Ice Pick or Ice Block. If you’re looking for even more Ice Picks and Ice Blocks you can find them in our store.

Part Two: First Drink is Free for Level 20+

If you’re looking to quench that summer thirst, the Bartender at the Daeva & Beach Bar will be offering one free drink for all Daevas level 20 or higher. His cocktails made of Aether will boost your fighting spirit a little bit while tasting great. If you need another drink, you’ll be able to exchange six Ice Blocks for one of his Cocktail Shakers.

The Cocktail Shaker will provide two of the following drinks:

[Event] Manduri Sour

[Event] Blue Atreia

[Event] Ribbit Sunrise

[Event] Brommeltini

Each cocktail will last for 30 minutes and increases your natural healing, natural mana treatment, and DP. These quests can be completed once a day.

The Giving Grove 2018

The sun is shining and the birds are chirping – The Giving Grove is coming June 27 with new rewards. Gather your friends; you’ll need all the seeds you can get.

- How To Participate -

In the capital cities you will find three Magic Saplings and their gardener the Arbor Keeper. Speaking to the Arbor Keeper will give you a one-time quest, which provides you with a nutrient bundle. Upon opening the bundle you will be able to pick the nutrient corresponding to the sapling you wish to use it on (Robust, Shiny, and Solemn). Use the nutrient on the sapling to receive an Inferior Present and a Magic Tree Seed.

Upon obtaining 1,500 Magic Tree Seeds you can combine them to get a Fused Magic Tree Seed. You can use this seed to grow begin growing Magic Trees. There are three different trees, and each one has three stages. The higher a tree’s stage is, the better the rewards will be when you feed it nutrients.

Magic Tree Seeds are tradable so be sure to work together to grow the trees! The player that uses the Fused Magic Seed to grow the tree will be granted the corresponding Very Special Present which contains a unique title! If the tree is already at the final stage, using a Fused Magic Seed will still grant a present, but it will not be the same one as growing the tree.

Each tree offers different rewards, so be sure to use your nutrients or seed on the tree you want! Keep in mind, all three trees will return to their sapling forms during the weekly maintenance.

If you are looking for additional nutrients, you will automatically be granted one per hour you are logged in, up to a maximum of two per day. Prestige Pack holders can acquire five additional nutrients through a special survey they will receive once per week after the maintenance. You will also be able to obtain nutrients from certain bosses inside instances.

- Rewards & Locations -

The entire list of rewards and instances can be found on the forums here.

Gather your gardening supplies and start tilling before The Giving Grove ends on July 18.
