Cook your heart out in the Feastival: Nov. 22 – Dec. 9

Can you stand amongst the legendary chefs of Erenor, or will you be chopped under the pressure?

Test yourself in the Feastival, running Hasla from Nov. 22 at 12:01 AM UTC until December 9 at 11:59 PM UTC. To get there, either visit a festival gate in your capital city or Diamond Shores, or visit Hasla yourself! The region has been set into Festival Law for the duration of the event, so no attacking one another (except for Guild Dominions, of course!)

Daily Quests
  • Visit Eldest Princess Esana to get a letter to give to Master Chef Haines. Delivering the letter will offer 1 Feastival Coin and your choice of special Gembloom Seed. Plant the seed to acquire a flower petal that can be used to get special Flowerbed Housing Decor.
  • Delivering 100 Iron Ingots to Blacksmith Hankson to gain 5 Feastival Coins.
  • Help Cooking Researcher Konney produce Creative Recipe Notes using paper, memory ink, and 10 labor to gain a Feastival Coin and a small amount of printing proficency.

  • Legendary Chef Leonan will also be challenging adventurers to cook special Royal dishes daily at the same time as Mai's requests (12 PM, 6 PM, and 9 PM UTC for Europe and 8 AM, 2 PM, 5 PM PST for North America.) Completing his challenge will net you 3 Feastival Coins and a little extra cooking proficiency.
