Cherry Blossom Events

  • Event Requirements: Log in and collect the challenge rewards, a total of 5 per day can be earned at one hour intervals. These can then be exchanged for various rewards, depending on the amount turned in to any local skill instructor NPC.

What I'm saying is there's nothing in the reward window. Do we have to plant trees first and obtain them? Do they drop off mobs? There's even an event tab and it has nothing. You may want to clarify or reword.

I think it's this one: http://bddatabase.net/kr/item/16328/

The name matches, and it contains one of these items:

  • Black Magic Crystal - Cobelinus
  • Black Magic Crystal - Viper
  • Black Magic Crystal - Addis
  • Black Magic Crystal - Carmae
  • Black Magic Crystal - Harphia
  • Black Magic Crystal - Hystria

If that's the case, it would definitely be the most profitable to go for the x25 option 4 times during the event.

But do these crystals sell? Looking at AH currently there's a bunch sitting for 1D+ at or near the top. With a flood of those boxes it'd be even worse. I think the Resplendent Box is the best option. Guaranteed ~81m after taxes if you sell everything.

For the Shining Box, a best case scenario is 100m after taxes with the best rng on BMC bundle. Assuming they sell

Can you claim a Reward multiple times? Cuz i feel like the Fine Accessory Box is not worth it there. Its better to get 5x the 15 Points one that means :

50x Memory Fragments  5x Concentrated Magical Black Stone (Armor) 5x Concentrated Magical Black Stone (Weapon) that equals 67,5m guaranteed. 

So you must get a Ogre Ring from this to be better than 5x the 15 Points one.

You can get that box 7 times. It is the best box.

Oh okay so it's not even in game yet. Gotcha. I falsely assumed that this patch to start an event actually started the event.

I love being able to get more trees - I expanded my homes and needed more.  (Need more houses btw too - 5 is proving to be confining).  The box is a very nice reward for logging and staying on as well.

BUT - I miss the gather part of the seed collection and tree making of last year.  It was a lot of fun to go around and try to pick weeds for the seeds.  Was much more immersive and interactive. 

Love the little quests we get all the time and look forward to them weekly.   I would love them more if they are mixed up a bit with doing different things, like the seed gathering last year, the easter egg hunt, the soccer ball drop, etc. etc. etc.

If you do the 10 Memory Fragments for 15 Blossoms you are getting 50 Memory Fragments in a 75 hour window as opposed to exchanging 25 Blossoms for 15 Memory Fragments in a 75 hour window which would only net you 45 Fragments. The higher tier actually gives less Fragments. This should be addressed.

  • Exchange (x15) Cherry Blossoms for a ‘[Event] Resplendent Cherry Blossom Ornament Box' which contains all of the items below:

    • Memory Fragments X10

    • Concentrated Magical Black Stone (Armor) X1

    • Concentrated Magical Black Stone (Weapon) X1

  • Exchange (x25) Cherry Blossoms for a '[Event] Shining Cherry Blossom Ornament Box' which contains:

    • Memory Fragments X15

    • [Event] Black Magic Crystal Bundle X1

This. I would have loved more rewards from gathering. Last year I didnt get that much.

Yeah, you're right. I should looked more closely at the Resplendent Box, and that definitely looks the best overall.

I'm definitely doing the x15 option for the difficult to buy concentrated stones and better ratio of Memory fragments.

WTF so we can't gather the seeds ourselves whose bright idea was this way to go and ruin this event. Are you planning on doing the same BS to the Easter egg hunt?

Wow you guys really know how to deflate the fun balloon. -_-

No fixes to dark knight or server stability? Depressing shit guys. Thanks. Maybe next week I guess. Until then we can play the "Spring Disconnect Mini Game" while afking or leaving major cities 😆 wtg! 

While I appreciate the events and great game there are some serious issues regarding server stability that need to be addressed and I think alot of players will agree with me on that.

I hope to see this company push in the right direction because while small server capacities "look" nice and busy....it doesn't actually help anyone long term.

Bump up the server capacities please. People are leaving the game cuz they cannot stay connected which means your losing money not saving money...by cutting corners.

Just a suggestion.

Alright I'm actually super peeved! These seeds were so hard to get last year! I worked my butt off spending hundreds of energy to go through bushes to find those damn seeds and now they're just on the loyalty shop? I had to gather a ton of damn petals to trade for one stupid pot and now you get one per tree? I'll save a ranting post for after I grow my tree and confirm its the same tree but if that's the case it'll be super disheartening.

i dont have fence, how i plant seeds? :ph34r:

Go to the town Material Vendor, the one in Heidel is by the statue in the square. 

You can find him by clicking on the NPC button that is to the left of the Mini-map.  Rent the Strong Fence one for 10 contribution points, by clicking the long rectangular button when it appears after talking to the Material Vendor.  You can return the Strong Fence and get your contribution points back whenever you want, but you won't have the fence when you do so.  The Strong Fence will stay down for 7 days real-time (placement clock) once placed.  The placement clock resets each time you plant more seeds.  Should the placement clock run out of time before you can plant more seeds, then it is placed in your town storage, so try to keep at least one town storage slot open (in the closest town you're growing your blossom tree in).  You have to place the Strong Fence outside of a Safe Zone, in a combat zone so look for a grassy area close to town right outside where it is safe.  Right click on the Strong Fence item in your inventory to access the fence placing screen--on this screen you can place the fence where it lights up blue; also on this screen you will plant your seeds by left-clicking them and placing them in a square (for this event the Cherry blossom seeds per fence up to 5 times at once--more on that below).

You can plant up to 5 seeds simultaneously as the Strong Fence has 10 slots--each Cherry Blossom seed takes up 2 slots a piece.  In case anyone else that's new to farming and the event is wondering: the seeds can be purchased from the Loyalty Store for one Loyalty point each, ONCE each day per family account.

It takes 8 plus hours to grow a seed, and you have to be online for it to actually grow.  Use Fertilizer and River or Distilled water (fill the bars up) and that will help it to go ahead and grow and take only about 6 plus hours.  Use the Fertilizer and water by standing by the plant in the plot outside of the seed placement interface--just walk up to it in the game world and right click on the Fertilizer and Water (4-5 second cooldown between clicks).  Fill up the Fertilizer and Water level bars on the Tree Status screen (accessed by facing the plant and pressing 'R').  Periodically while the cherry blossom tree is growing, you have to go attend to the plants to remove twigs/branches/bugs/pests whatever.  A quick way to check without running there is to look on the game map--if it's red then you need to go check and fix the tree for it to keep growing.  If it's blue on the map then it is cool.  Check every so often.  Also, you can run to your tree/farm plot by right clicking on the plant UI icon on the left side of your screen by default.  If you have an Alt (alternate character) log it off right there and switch to it if you will be on a main or different character that will be far away from your farm plot/Strong Fence.  You can then just quickly log-in and handle fixing your tree blossom growth and switch back, for convenience.  Harvest your crop when it gets to 100%.  You can wait slightly longer but usually in farming if you want the tree decoration, 100% is ideal enough; you're done.

I hope this helps.
