New Year Fireworks

Wednesday, January 18 – Tuesday, February 7
This event starts and ends at midnight UTC.

It’s fun to ring in the new year with fireworks! Accept the quest ‘Make New Year Fireworks Materials’ to begin by crafting a Mysterious Flame Orb. Collect Firework Shells and Mysterious Flame Orbs and bring them to the Fireworks Merchant NPC (located in major towns) to create fireworks. You can find Firework Shells inside the Chinese New Year Gift Box, or from defeating Maple Fireworks monsters that appear in fields during the event period. You can make fireworks ten times per day.

The Fireworks Merchant NPC will help you randomly create one of three kinds of fireworks--Normal Fireworks Box, Floral Fireworks Box, or New Year's Blessings Fireworks Box. Double-click the box to see it explode and give you one random item! Blow up your boxes to find items such as New Year Coins, restorative items, trait items, a Blessed Bugle face accessory, or a Firework Chair!

New Year Coin Shop

Wednesday, January 18 – Tuesday, February 7

You’ve been collecting those New Year Coins—now take them to the New Year Coin Shop to exchange them for wonderful items! Visit Miss Song to see what she has stocked in the shop. Collect items such as a Special Medal of Honor, Selective 4 Slot Coupon, Blessed Bugle scrolls, Mastery Books, potential items, and more!

You can also get one of three new chairs—the Abraxas Chair, Subsumed World Tree Chair, or Ostentation Chair. The Ostentation Chair is unique in that it consumes mesos as you sit on it! Show the world how flush you are as you zoom through your meso supply.

These are also several damage skins available from the shop, including

  • Calligraphy Damage Skin

  • Explosion Damage Skin

  • Snow-wing Damage Skin

  • Nine-Tailed Fox Damage Skin

  • Donut Damage Skin

New Year Greetings

Wednesday, January 18 – Tuesday, February 7
This event starts and ends at midnight UTC.

Wish everyone a happy new year! To begin, accept the quest ‘[New Year's] How to Do New Year's Greetings’ from the New Year's Greetings notifier on the left side of the screen. Right-click another character and select “Send Greeting” to exchange greetings. If the other player accepts, a window will appear, and you can wish each other well.

You can only initiate a greeting with 10 players per day, and you may only greet each account once. The daily quests reset at 4:00 PM (Pacific) each day. After successfully exchanging greetings, you will earn Family Points! Each character also receives a family label, based on when the Nexon account was created. The older your account, the more aged your family label! If you exchange greetings with someone who has a different family label, you can earn more points.

Keep collecting those Family Points to earn New Year Coins, and even a Moon Bunny Damage Skin if you reach 10,000 Family Points!
