Greetings Adventurers,
 

To finish off our Anniversary events, we’ll be hosting the One Year Anniversary NPC’s Gratitude Event! We know it sparked a lot of conversation during the Valentine’s Event with the popularity event; this event is similar but you will notice some key differences.
Read below to learn more.

    • Quest reward - [Event] Empty Pack (X10), Black Stone (Armor) (X5)
       

During the event period [Event] Sweet Candy can be obtained from killing monsters in the game world, which can then be combined with [Event] Empty Pack provided by the event quest.

Well, glad I joined after Jan 1st. I get the same rewards as people who've been here longer and don't have to do as nearly as much of the work either. GG

What about those who already worked on fame? If our total house fame is over 1k are we just given the big box or do we have to gain an additional 1k points?

 

NVM read it again...

So if you left the game 1 month after launch and came back recently you are still considered a loyal player (though you obviously were not loyal) and has to reach 600 points (which is super high when in the end you only played for a few weeks since launch) only to consider the minimal reward.

Way to screw your returning players. Why not place these with the rookies? Thanks for nothing, I guess.

It's nice to see Kakao listening to the community and adding in more event, but if a "loyal" player is any player who purchased the game before 01/01/2017 then it's quite a slap in the face to players who have been around since the beginning.

Yay one quest for 2 weeks and a fame event that a lot of people probably already qualify for without doing anything.
