Raise your lantern! The folks of Gweonid Forest are celebrating the light of the night, and they want all of Erenor to come celebrate with them. Fun prizes like Yata Lanterns, a monkey chair and rug, and labor regenerative dreams await those who participate!

Festival Dates & Location
The Gweonid Forest Lantern Festival will be available in Gweonid Forest starting at 2:00 AM UTC on March 29 and ending at 2:00 AM UTC on April 19 for European Servers. North American servers will hold the festival from 12:00 AM PST on March 29 to 12:00 AM PST on April 19.

To reach Gweonid Forest, either travel to it by foot, teleport there using your Teleport Book, or make use of one of the Gweonid Forest Festival Worldgates present in your Faction Base.

During this time, Gweonid Forest will be set into Festival Law, allowing all players to participate in the festival. Remember: Festival Law prevents bloodlust and PvP activities, but it does not prevent Guild Dominions. You have been warned!

Festival Quests
[Daily] Start by crafting a lantern with Denissi! You’ll need 10 pieces of paper, 5 Memory Inks, and 10 Labor to put together a lantern – just drop by the Lantern Festival Workbench in the festival area. Doing so will earn you 1 Lantern Festival Token.

[Daily] Next, Denissi will ask you to raise your lantern. Doing so will earn you another Lantern Festival Token, as well as a Toy Lantern you can use for the next 6 hours.

[Daily] Rojuni is in need of someone to help ward off hypnotizing Wisps in the area. Once complete, this quest will earn you another Lantern Festival Token.

[Daily] Have some excess Iron Ignots? Asha needs them! Deliver 50 Iron Ingots each day for 5 Lantern Festival Tokens.

[Timed Quest] Ever see a Yata Shaped Lantern? You will now! Visit Mellius at 1 PM, 7 PM, and 12:00 AM UTC in Europe, or 11:00 AM, 5:00 PM, and 10:00 PM PDT in North America – he’ll stick around for an hour each time.

Use the Candlelit Table around the Dimmed Lantern in order to light it up into a Sparkling Lantern! Once the lantern is lit, your quest will be completed and you’ll be awarded 3 Lantern Festival Tokens, 1 Glimmershine Essence, and a special Gweonid Elixir buff offering +3% Evasion, +41 Attack Speed, and -4% Cast Time for 1 hour.

Glimmershine Essences can be combined into additional Lantern Festival Tokens. Make sure to appropriately convert them into tokens before the festival ends, otherwise they will be removed from your inventory!

Monkey Chair – 30 Tokens
Small Red, Green, Blue, Yellow Yata Lanterns – 15 Tokens
Red, Green, Blue, and Yellow Yata Lanterns – 25 Tokens

I heard that the KR/RU/JP/CN/TW versions of the event had storage chests as prizes, is that true? ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

So the real question is, are the yatas bound?

Yata aren't, only the Blue Salt Origins (Book) as decor item is.

But when other regions did get that chest ?

If you have bug for put the lantern near the lake, Try log off and log on, and click in grass.
There are no achievement for this event ?
And per day you can have 8 token + 3 token x 3 = 17

Moly

That's it, up to 17 tokens and 3 Glimmershine Essence (you need 8 of them to turn into an extra Token) if you are doing all the quests and timed events.

I was able to place it right infront where the dock part starts at the lake (on the grass)

Is it possible for future events to put a house near the event that displays the items we can get. It would be nice to see the different sizes of the yata laterns and how big the monkey chair is.
I know Socke has made houses for the livestream, and just wondering if it would be possible.

From Trion's web page listing details of the festival: [Timed Quest] Ever see a Yata Shaped Lantern? You will now! Visit Mellius at 1 PM, 7 PM, and 12:00 AM UTC in Europe, or 11:00 AM, 5:00 PM, and 10:00 PM PDT in North America – he’ll stick around for an hour each time... Yet 10 minutes after Mellius showed..poof the npc was gone...no where near an hour, I'd hope y'all plan on fixing this????

Ahahaha, do you still believe that Santa Claus exists? They never fixed their event related issues. (cF : the event at Hasla last year, we got broken petals, and some of them give us Enla Coins that are absolutely useless)

It was forwarded to XL as a bug :

I've added this behavior in as a bug. In the festival's design documentation, this isn't explicitly called out (only says quest giver sticks around for an hour) but it is an odd behavior that breaks from prior conventions.

the raise your lantern quest is bugged, can not place it on the shore, logging out and back in may help but on a slow computer this is a horrible option to get it to work.

Why is the timed yata lantern only lasting 10 to 12 minutes when it says on the forum that it will last for an hour each time? I'm just not understanding this at all.

The cross eye'd ♥♥♥♥s can't tell time. I don't know of one event they do that the times are not all jacked up. You can pretty much count on something to be screwed up.

The QUEST GIVER will remain for 1hr - but the lantern itself only lasts 10-12 minutes. It's been this way for every event with a timed turn-in since...well all the way back to Red Dragon Legacy at least. You gotta just log on at exactly the hour on the dot, get your quests on all your alts, then swap back over and help click the lights....

Then soon as the lantern is lit, mad dash log in and out in and out in and out clicking the lit lantern. ;p Been doing it for a while. Sometimes game crashes and i don't get it on a couple alts but i usually can get them all.

As a side note- logging OUT of alts and alt accounts during these event turn ins is a really nice thing to do so others can actually get to the lantern/egg/beehive ect! Please don't crowd the event with alts guys!

That is totally bassackwards of the way it should be. Here is an idea, why not make the lantern stay there all the time and keep the quest giver as it is. Without the quest the lantern is useless so it's not going to hurt just sitting there. But as you said, these bugs have been here since...well probably, the first line of code was written.

Quest happens at certain time. Ite ists for an hour til its completed.

Turn up on time. Dont bring an army of alts.
