    Heroes of Dracania,

    It’s Piñata-Party time! Release 238 will come with a polished Dracanian Anniversary Festival Event, which is based on player suggestions as well as bug fixes.​

    The Event starts on the 5th of August, so enough time to prepare ourselves and look forward to a great Festival!
    See you at the Festival!

    Player Suggestions
    Heroes of Dracania, we gathered a lot of feedback regarding the Anniversary Festival from last year and tried to implement as many suggestions/wishes as possible that a) we deemed reasonable and b) we were able to realize, because as you know: we are currently in the process of developing the Content Expansion.​
    • Egg Openers from the final Arena Chests
      • We added Phesto’s Egg Openers to the Loot of the final Arena Chests. The amount scales with the difficulty you play on
    • Progress Rewards
      • Rewards were changed, different mounts, pets, etc. have been added
      • Realm Fragments were added as progress reward, to several bars
    • New Unique Items
      • Ring of Diversion was added
    • Ingredients from final Arena chests
      • Herbs and ores and later even some extracts can now be found in this chest. The drop chance, ingredient type, rarity and drop stack size depends on the difficulty you play on and in which arena you fight. (You will not get herbs, that you typically find in regions of Duria, in the Atlantis arena for example)
    • Pricing of Anniversary Piñatas
      • The Piñata near Zumpe now costs 20 truncheons instead of 25 and the Piñata near the Gnob costs 5 instead of 2. No changes were being made regarding any drop chances or possible loot.
    • Anniversary Event Attire
      • An additional bonus effect was added while not raising the price for the attire (more info below)
    • Auto loot for Phesto’s Egg openers
      • The auto pick-up function for this item was added for Premium and Deluxe Members
    • Spring Festival items
      • There is a chance, that Daran the Spoiler spawns together with the final arena chest. While the chance of him spawning is low and depends on the arena you fight in (chances are slightly higher in the later arenas), he will always drop one of the Spring festival-specific items, like the Enigmatic Hatchling (pet), the Spring Festival Egg (mount), or a part of the Joy of Spring set. He can only spawn in the specific arenas, not the random one.
    • Anniversary Forfeit Chests
      • The Forfeit Chests cannot be opened until the respective progress bar has been opened (i.e. You cannot open Anniversary Forfeit Chest (Qaizah) as long as you haven’t finished the Lor’Tac progress bar).
    • Performance issues in the Lor’Tac arena
      • The number of monsters in wave 2 and 4 to was reduced to avoid possible performance issues
    • Performance issues when opening the arena chests
      • The loot from the arena chests has been updated to avoid possible performance issues when opening all the chests one after another very quickly
    The event guide can be found here.​

    Best regards,
    Your Drakensang Online Team
