Follow the light of the stars and heed the call of destiny as the citizens of Erenor gather for the Zodiac Festival!

Between 12:01 AM GMT on August 2 and 11:59 PM GMT on August 16 visit Solzreed Peninsula to take part in special daily quests and more! For a quick, free hop to the festival, visit Austera, Marianople, or Diamond Shores to find a Solzreed Peninsula worldgate in your Faction Base.

Once in Solzreed, complete the available quests to collect festival coins and earn unique Zodiac Constellation titles to wear! Here’s some of what you can look forward to:

Astrologist Agape will tell you to purchase a Constellation Jar from the Marketplace using Merit Badges. Make sure to get one before beginning your Festival Experience!

Quaini from the local pasture needs help making some Galaxy Gumbo, which can provide combat buffs. Collect the ingredients and cook up the soup each day for a Zodiac Festival Coin and 10 cooking proficiency.

Astrologist Linoa needs some Lustrous Golden Wool, as he’s already run out! Collect those wools and you’ll be rewarded with a Legend of the Zodiac and Husbandry Proficiency in addition to a Zodiac Festival Coin. Legends of the Zodiac can be bound together to create volumes of stories.

Astrologist Yattman needs help collecting Zodiac Owl Feathers, which can only be found at night. Completing his quest offers another Legend of the Zodiac and a Zodiac Festival Coin.

The Young Shepherd Paul isn’t very good at his job, and he’s trying to pull a fast one on Linoa with fabric. Your fabric. 100 fabric, to be precise. Helping this scamp with his ruse will earn you 5 Zodiac Festival Coins.

Once you’ve gotten your legs under you, visit Astrologist Agape again to receive a Constellation Sapling and then begin a Tree of Fate quest. To successfully grow this tree, you’ll need the assistance of another person who has a complimentary constellation title to yours. With their help, your tree will find its destiny and bear a Zodiac Leaf. Helping others bring their tree to fruition will net you 2 Zodiac leaves!

Earn 15 Zodiac Leaves to be able to earn a final reward of 3 Zodiac Festival Coins and the official festival title, “Star Seeker.” If you earn more leaves than the 15, you can turn them into festival coins at a rate of 8 leaves for 1 coin.

Your coins can be used to earn a series of star-struck items, including Bound Honor Boost Tonics, Bound Immortal XP Tonics, Flip-Flops, Bracelets, the Decorative Windcreek and Silver Oasis Lutes, additional Legends of the Zodiac, woven charms to decorate your house, the mystical and decorative Kismet Star Shard (which can make your constellation sign appear above your head), and a Zodiac Festival Pouch that will offer a small amount of gold.

But the true highlight of this event is the Kaleidoscope Flask, which will randomly give you a costume dye when used! Normally these dyes are available on the ArcheAge Marketplace, but you can get this item using your festival coins!

Follow your fates, Adventurers, and earn your coins before the event ends on August 16!

Does this just turn on then, or is maintenance tomorrow instead of the usual (as of late) Wed to enable this?

Haha I'll take the blame, if someone has to. We could've sugar-coated the "tragic" constellations during localization if we really wanted.

But we didn't =P

Will the quest tell us which sign will partner up with ours for the tree quest?

Until we get an "official" answer, what I gathered from the live stream is that the tooltip for the tree itself will tell you what signs are compatible with you... iirc

It will be a part of the tree tooltip, depending on the title you have.

Also I'm just trying to figure out how exactly they are gonna give free tokens to just east characters for this

Would have been better to test things first lol

So when is Solzreed going to go into peace so East can actually participate in this event..? I'm assuming the regular downtime but that means that some people will miss out on a day's coins. :/

The festival portal ports you on top of a hostile guard? Is this a west only event? do we get our own event later on the east?

Its typical Trion ... first do and then think about ... but the Nui is near the festivalplace and u can reach it without one more kill :)

Ladyluxanna
08-02-2016, 03:14 AM
all they had to do was take down the servers for like 20min-hour with 1 hour heads up then quickly put festival on and done

zone is festival and servers go down for like 20 minutes and all is gud simple and easy and everyone is happy
now they have to somehow give compensation to just east characters and now everything is complicated

i guess trino is digging their grave instead of trying to fix it
^ how to piss people off

good job trino

It is so stupid. We all want to have fun, and we Haranyans can't. The Nuian players have fun killing other players, I can't even get the festival quests because I am constantly attacked.

So Trion, do anything. Or will you come up with some "compensation" when the festival is over?

So when exactly will it be safe to A.) port in from the festival worldgate and not get killed by the guard, and B.) not get killed by the sea of Nuians sitting around the festival quests waiting for Haranyans? Kinda messed up that the Haranyans can't participate yet.

Ladyluxanna
08-02-2016, 08:38 AM
The best way to fix this is extending the event by 2-3 days and then banning (or somehow stopping) the people that attacked non nuia players to be banned the same amount of time the event is extended

Only way to make this event fair now

08-02-2016, 08:47 AM
since no one has written this yet COMPENSASION for the suffering haranyan faction we demand 1k gold and 20 zodiac coins!

To make sure those following different threads saw this:


Guys, we intend to keep doing events. They're not going anywhere, hiccups and errors aside.

Now, all of that said, we've talked with the development team and it looks like we will not be able to extend the Zodiac Festival event any further. Instead, we will be granting players festival coins to make up for the lost time, via our usual route of a 0-credit claim item on the Glyph Shop. We apologize for the inconvenience, and Festival Mode will be enabled with Wednesday's scheduled server maintenance.

Solzreed is not in festival mode, Trion is lying to their players.

Edit: i understand that they will do some sort of refund to players, but this is so stupid since East players will always be at a disadvantage.

Edit no.2(like seriously there are lots of broken things): during mistmerrow, i was able to get to the festival area with being instantly killed but i found that i was unable to accept one of the quests. when i pressed F to accept it, it would make me go through the quest texts again without accepting. i was unable to get the name of the quest or the giver because i was killed but it was next to the legend of the zodiac quests.

08-02-2016, 12:01 PM

East players will still be at a disadvantage, even with the compensation.

XAJoker
08-02-2016, 01:59 PM
Somehow I find it hard to believe 90% of you complaining don't have Nuian alts that will benefit from the compensation also.

I also find it hard to believe someone at Trion did not have the sense to realize festival peace would not start like you thought it would. Sanddeep festival peace didn't end like it was suppose to, and that should have alarmed at least one person to stand up and say, "Maybe, just maybe, we should do server maintenance on the off chance it doesn't start." That would have saved a whole lot of headache.

To that one guy/gal that is walking around today saying or thinking, "I told you so!": right on, right on. But speak louder next time, because little things like this have a Huge impact on your players.

First wtf is this festival ONLY FOR NUIANS? , 2. east gets killed by guards? 3. It is not even festival zone, so east gets killed by nuians too (thats so great, THANKS TRION for special event !)

Neyven
08-02-2016, 04:27 PM
I don't want to sound overly salty. But how is it fair that the west gets the head start on this festival and those of us on the east well are basically ending up being told hurry up and wait or get slaughtered but nuian guards or west players and still not be able to begin the festival quest?

So when is Solzreed going to go into peace so East can actually participate in this event..? I'm assuming the regular downtime but that means that some people will miss out on a day's coins. :/

Seems that way, I first tried the event today on PTS, works fine. Like it is suppose to. Next I logged onto EU Rangora with my two accounts, had only gotten my alt to the event, and was guard killed. Ran back, got into the Zodiac tent and was then player killed. Tried a 3rd time, got the quest and was guard killed. Had to repair my gear from the deaths.

No idea about NA server, about to log on there. But then again I have west toons on NA for both accounts.

**Edit:

Point being, ...on PTS, the Zodiac Festival in the Solzreed zone is set to peace. From reading the rest of the posts above mine, on NA and EU on any server, the Zodiac Festival is not Haranya friendly at all. Future events after this really need to be implimented better to where the zone goes to peace at the same time the event begins.

The Halloween event had the same issue, event begins, no peace on zone and opposing factions kill each other like shooting fish in a barrel.

Seems this event is as screwed up as the last one- The sea bug Quest had some nice gifts for your coins, except 3 of the items impossible to get as there are not enough days. [Edit] If you couldn't do the Lusca part of the quests.

Now there is this one which in the my vernacular is a total C.O.C.K-Up. East toddles off to Solzreed by the nice portals you made us and we die by the West camping the zone in point --- WHERE IS THE DAMN PEACE no wonder you are losing your player base as you cant even get the small things right.

To make sure those following different threads saw this:

So all players East or West will get this compensation? Not much compensation for those actually affected. Also it was stated any characters level 10 and above could participate. Will there be compensation based on characters or just 1 packages per account? Since I have expansion slots, that I purchased, and could have done the festival on 6 characters this seems like a pretty bad comp package... Yeah I could really see trying to get my level 23 over there past the guards and hostile faction without stealth!!! NOT

notebene
08-03-2016, 11:36 AM
So now that it's running, it all seems fine, except finding someone to help. There's like 100 people standing around, 5 trees (already helped). Occasionally when someone puts a tree down, I don't see how to tell if I can help it unless I run over to it.

And the trees that need help are really hard to spot from a distance, like sitting way over at the wallflower stumps because everyone puts their trees around the cool stumps and quest giver.

Plus, with 10 stumps and 100+ people, we 'really' need some sort of immovable /sit emote.

Just some observations. :)

You get a title with the thing from that jar. You need to have that title active to get the quest to get the tree.
