To thank all the hunters around the world, the Appreciation Fest is coming to the Celestial Pursuit on January 26!

Notice: Special Daily Bonus Compensation Set

During the Appreciation Fest, a bug occurred that prevented some users from obtaining their special daily bonus if they claimed their login bonus during a specific time period.

Upon investigation, it turns out that this issue was caused by a difference between the reset time for login bonuses and the update time for special daily bonuses, so we've condensed the update time for special daily bonuses to 19:00 UTC.

To make up for the special daily bonuses that could not be claimed because of this issue, we will offer the below item pack as a compensation the next time you log in.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.

Astera Fest Daily Bonus Compensation Set

  • - Appreciation Ticket x 3
  • - Appreciation Fireworks x 9

Availability

February 14 19:00 to February 21 23:59 UTC.
  • The contents of this item pack are the same as for other platforms.
  • As with login bonuses, you will need to play the game online to claim this item pack.

Dates Held: January 26 to February 21, 2019 (UTC)

This sale happens at the same time for all players online, so make sure to team up with your friends to take full advantage of this opportunity!

As a login bonus, you'll get three Lucky Vouchers plus an Appreciation Ticket. There will also be daily limited bounties where you can earn Appreciation Fireworks and Appreciation Tickets.
During the event you can earn Gold Wyverian Prints by completing limited bounties on Wednesday and Sunday.
Note: The Appreciation Fest tutorial notes that players receive two Lucky Vouchers with their login bonus, but the correct number is three vouchers. You can also exchange Appreciation Tickets for Appreciation Fireworks at the Elder Melder.
