Not sure the physics on a barrel but you can really pick up some speed swimming them. Fastest way to get to Windscour from Silent!

Carrot Wings does have a (very) short aerial hover on a brief cooldown. I wouldn't call it flying per se.

Please address and confirm the peace situation, in the live stream it talks about the area being in peace for the festival. Does this mean people in those areas can run trade packs like crazy out of those zones with no issues for the entire month? Also, will the portals from Sanddeep that get to this even cost the West hereafter stones or are we getting free ports from the west?

Yeah good luck getting it done with purpling faction members and reds alike preventing you from finishing or even DOING the run!

There will be booze aplenty! This event celebrates an infamous band of prohibition-style rum smugglers that became folk heroes during the harani/firran war. You can buy multiple types of alcohol with your River Festival Coins, each of which grant effects like increased damage, increased dodge, or even increased healing. It's potent stuff, though, so it also comes with a hangover that decreases Focus!

Luckily, you can ALSO spend your Festival Coins on a miracle "hangover cure" which negates the debuff and restores a small amount of labor. Handy, no?

Hope that helps!

As confirmed on the live stream Festival time = Peace time. This means the east gets pretty much a month (25days as seen in the video) of free packs to trade from hostile zones. This means intra-trading on east factions will have a huge bonus for a month! As a westy this is BS and really irritates me, more so because my guild does a lot of pack thief in Rookbourne. Even if Hellswamp and and Sandeep where to go for a month of peace, Halcy still interferes with the intra trading that could happen. So I want to know if the West is getting a version of this event as well?

This event is terrain based event. You need this said river to do the event so the west cannot have this event as they do not have this river. West has always got screwed over you should be use to it by now.

It actually will be pretty hard to get that carrot wing if the event runs 25 days that means you have to run the event at least 23 times out of 25 days to get the donkey.

I wasn't asking about the exact same event. More of a general Event where hostile zones get Festival time too.

I think they have to leave it at festival the entire time... Else how will those of us who work be able to finish it? Though if they could make it just around the river instead of the entire way, it might be cool.

Stop crab walking the packs then.

Seriously though, I'm sure the denizens of Windscour would gladly trade 25 days of 24 hour pack moving, for UNLIMITED days of 17 hour pack moving.

these are the outfits. the suits are probably only worth if you're a female, at least top and bottom pieces. unless trion is holding back new images for the tops for males, as it stands, they are all just plain white.

So you like green pirates more than real pirates?
Pirate is not punishment for killing people/robbing/etc because only an idiot wouldn't do the super easy daily quests to remove infamy and crime points.
Being a real pirate is NOT staying green and ninja killing your same alliance for their packs.
Being a real pirate is taking the nerfs and letting everyone know that you are going to pirate.
Being a real pirate is choosing to be ... honest.

i beg to differ. IMO its the east that always gets screwed. sure we have hasla and a fast river but you guys have GHA, the red dragon, that castle in halcyona where all the mobs have a chance to drop black pearl fragments, you just got a new zone which is the only place you can get crayfish, you guys pretty much zerg hasla anyway so saying we have it is a long shot, you guys have your own kraken and a lovely beach to go with it, you have a copy of the mirage isle party boat, you have gillweed, you have an easier time trading because eastern ports are alot easier to get into than western ports, you guys own most of the housing on east, west, and the islands (on my server at least), and not to mention we have to put up with the same faction gankers forestcrow and their 2 alt guilds and pirate allies (also on my server). so dont say you always get screwed just because you dont get an event whos prizes are purely cosmetic or minor in their assistance with gameplay. THE DONKEY CAN'T FLY. so no aerial single pack trade runs for anyone.

Question about this event;

The in game lore suggests that this is an annual festival/event.

If so, does that mean we will see this same event at around the same time next year, and if so will it have the same token rewards, and the same (or an expanded) list of prizes?

This is a somewhat important question for people that both intend to play this game for a while still, and also are unable to log in enough to run this event every day.

So as luck would have it, I completely missed out on the cyanfin during the valentines pack cycle. Spent 250 trying to get it, failed, then wasn't present when it was being given out for free. I noticed that cyanfin will be available during this event. However, the cost of it (36 coins) and the cost of the donkey (47 coins) make it impossible to get both with the length of time the event is supposedly going to run (rumors have it at 25 days) due to the fact that only 3 coins a day are obtainable. Are those accurate stats?

Also, RB and WS are in forced peace during the event period from what I hear.

Also also, I second noaani's question shown below.

So An Event thats set in Haranya i see this being a very 1 sided event no pirates gonna be able to compete and also Nuians gonna be at a huge disadvantage

My thoughts exactly. When is there going to be more focus on balance? Seems like the East is heavily favored by the developers and as a result, most high end players play on east. It's really messed up that they would do this - There's no balance in it. Why two locations in the same continent. For god sakes why? Does Nuia ever get anything? And don't tell me that we have crim and grimghast - that gets overrun by Harani every single time. The balance in this game is a joke - Y'all should focus on fixing that so that it's actually enjoyable to play any faction and not just Harani.

As it stands, I'm almost forced to make a Harani character if I have any hope of playing the game to its fullest potential -That and cash bought only items. That and the utmost exclusivity of land control, in which people can hoard land and prevent any new comer to get a start. Balance please.

Scapes loves emergent gameplay so much let's fill that river with merchants, clippers, galleons etc.

Hey you allow harpooning a players' boat in peace zone for the purpose of pulling them to a pvp zone to murder and rob them. So blocking a river is a lesser crime then murder.

Thanks scapes for giving us this emergent gameplay, for enabling every one of these community building, quality well adjusted individuals to act like charles mansion times stalin, and to get away with it.

The event is open to everyone, you are not, I repeat ARE NOT, competing against anyone but yourself and button presses. Anyone of any level can do this. You just need the material for the basic barrel which lasts 30 mins so about 3 runs. The materials are 2 paper and a lumber.

Now for the reason it takes two regions, it's to re-enact a story line of where smugglers used to ride barrels of rum down the river/waterfalls from one region to the other. Simple and not hate guys. Join in and have fun with it, There are people jumping in and out of the place all day long from beginners to maxed toons. It's just a way to play around with something different that has no combat to it.

Finally my last suggestion, leap off one of the waterfalls with a glider and see how far you can make it across the river and regions, my record is three :) Hope you have fun and will give it a try.

The questions here are all good and valid, I'd like to add one of my own though, are the swimsuits and mounts only available to Patron status players, if so, why wasn't this mentioned in the event advertisement? I'm not a patron (and won't be until I see better game stability) but I have 9 tokens, The swim suit pieces cost 5 tokens. The button to craft does not light up for me on the suit pieces, but I can buy all the drinks I want and the "Barrel Rider" title. Is this purposeful I'm assuming? Considering I've seen patrons running around in shorts or tops.

I would suspect they reset at the same time the dailies do, which is (I believe) 5 pm P[D/S]T? (World Time Buddy (http://www.worldtimebuddy.com/))

What is a bummer is unless I can sneak one last run in after the reset on the very last day (which, I might), I'll still end up 3 short of being able to get Carrot Top + 2 full swim suits by 3 tokens. Would there be any reason to keep the tokens, would they let it run again at the end of the summer?

I am not sure how the KR/RA version does it but its listed as a seasonal even in achievements. So it would probably be back again next year around the same time.

So you like green pirates more than real pirates?
Pirate is not punishment for killing people/robbing/etc because only an idiot wouldn't do the super easy daily quests to remove infamy and crime points.
Being a real pirate is NOT staying green and ninja killing your same alliance for their packs.
Being a real pirate is taking the nerfs and letting everyone know that you are going to pirate.
Being a real pirate is choosing to be ... honest.

While it's 'possible', based on the peace timer for the zones, that I might get 'one' more chance on the last day after the dailies reset to run it in the early evening and get the last 3 tokens I'll need, it would sure be nice to have like 'one' more day to be sure. :)

Saving for donkey and 2 swimming suits. If I can't squeeze one more run in early evening on that final day, I'll be 3 short from being able to complete a second swim suit. :(

There are 14 days left, so that's 42. You get 5 for crafting the watermelon barrel and you get 5 for doing all the following:

1. craft strawberry barrel (I sold mine on the AH since I crafted the watermelon)
2. 5 daily normal runs
3. 5 daily advanced runs
4. 5 daily beer runs

I think that's it. So that's 52? The donkey is I think forty-something?

Unless you spent some already maybe, or aren't in a position to run every day, then I'm sorry. :(

The Rum Runner Rapids Event comes to Rookborne Basin until 6/16/2015! To get started, visit the event NPCs located in Rookborne Basin just south of Loka's Steps.

From the latest patch notes:

Question: It says 6/16, but doesn't specify a time. The peace time in the zone is all the way until midnight (my time; Pacific). The dailies reset at 5pm my time. So the question is, will the event end right when the dailies roll over on that day, or will we have until midnight, effectively giving us 'one more' time to run the rapids between 5pm and midnight (P[S/D]T)?

I have to say, I got excited when I saw I had six hours left to get my last coin in the river event. I stood there at the quest guy for the last hour while I did other stuff. At 7pm my time, which is when the dailies roll over for me, I was standing there ready to get that last coin I needed.
What happens? Oh, everything goes poof. I can't even spend the last two coins I have now. Ugh.

Just sayin', this could have been a little smoother. Thanks for the event, it was fun. But a chance to get that last coin and maybe spend the coins I have on me would have been nice. Sticking them in storage just in case I'm still here next year. *sigh*

So I'm not sure how to feel about what just happened. I've been anxiously waiting for the reset so I could finally get the dolphin and.... the whole event npc's and buildings disappear in front of my eyes. It clearly shows on the map there was time left for the event. I only needed 3 coins. Now I'm stuck with 33 coins in my bag that are pretty much worthless. Why you do this? :(

The Rum Runner Rapids event was scheduled to end in about eight hours but has concluded a bit earlier than announced. While the NPCs have despawned, the festival status of Rookborne Basin and Windscour Savannah is still ticking down correctly. We're working on restoring the event workbench on all servers right now.

We'll keep you updated as to our progress in making sure players get to enjoy the event to its fullest and, most importantly, get to redeem the coins they've collected. Thanks for your patience!

I would have sworn that it was the EVENT that was being restored. We were assured that we had one more round of quests to do, so those of us who had 3 or less coins to go for whatever felt confident in getting that last bit for our goal.

Having the bench is nice and all, but seriously, timing is important. Your promises and assurances are important. Some of us are time restricted by real life matters. I was counting on this last day, this last few hours after the daily reset.

Meh. Par for the course at this point. The event was fun, I'll give you that. Right up my alley for the way an event should be. I just like to be sure of the timing of things because I schedule *everything*.

Posted a reply about this in a similar thread:

I'm sorry that the event's duration wasn't more apparent. While the festival timer on the in-game map read out a certain deadline, the event itself was slated to end at 5:00 PM PDT which is the reset time of many recurring mechanics in ArcheAge. Despite the workbench disappearing before the festival status ended, the event itself ran for the announced three weeks. It's also worth noting that Carrot Wings, the big prize of this event, could be earned with only 64% of the potential total coins (16 days or even less with the achievement rewards).

That said, we're already communicating the need for more absolute start and end times in our patch notes from XLGAMES (this weekend's event, Loyalty to the Land (http://www.trionworlds.com/archeage/en/2015/06/16/loyalty-to-the-land-event-june-19-22/), demonstrates this change). The reason we hold these events is for everyone to enjoy them, not to cause surprises like this. Moving forward, we'll be posting the exact times as received from the developers in addition to the dates so players can plan accordingly.

Scapes, couldn't you guys simply mail those last three festival tokens to everyone that participated? Everyone would end up happy, it wouldn't hurt the game's balance or anything and it would make you guys look nice, and comprehensive.
I mean, after all, it was your guys' mistake not to make the festival period timer reflect the actual duration of the event or specify that it would end before it expired.
