Get out there and craft your very own Valentine's Day Chocolate! Gift it to the NPC of your choice from a selection of assembled NPCs in five major cities: Velia, Heidel, Calpheon City, Altinova, and Valencia City. Players can use the chocolate to cast their vote on a popularity contest for these NPCs. Casting your vote on the most popular NPC (determined by player votes) will give you a shot at winning the grand prize!

  • Once fully grown, harvest the Cacao Tree to obtain a [Event] Cacao Item, and use Processing [Grinding] (L) to turn the item into [Event] Cacao Powder.

  • Now that you’ve successfully turned the item into [Event] Cacao Powder, visit a nearby merchant to purchase (2x) Mineral Water, and (1x) Sugar. After which use simple cooking (L) to produce (1x) [Event] Chocolate.

  • Players will need to use the [Event] Chocolate to cast their vote for the popularity of one of the pre-selected NPCs at the entrance of a major city.

  • Once you’ve successfully cast your vote on one of these NPCs, you will receive a thank you letter that you must keep safe during the full duration of this event.

That is entirely up to you guys, if I had a guess I'd say some of you crafty folks will certainly come up with some kind of plan for WORLD DOMINATION the event.

Kindda underwhelming, no buffs or a simple daily quest, plus, that lame -----ing seed better be able to grow on a regular fence cause if not, you're gonna force farmers to remove an entire 10 spot fence just for this stupid seed.

Just updating here as well in the event any one misses it, the timezone for the EU fireworks was changed from UTC to CET.

The above info was not correct, the times are actually 21:00 UTC and a second fire works display at 21:00 CET.

"oh hey guys we got this really cool unique event with actually decent rewards not only for participation but those who win aswell! we really out-did ourselves on this... Lets screw it up by making it 10 players for each category, making 40 players in total... after server merge...

 

... and i thought the 300 people for awakening events were skewed.
