The Gweonid Lantern Festival has returned. Light up the sky in memory of the brave Aranzeb in the 2021 Lantern Festival beginning February 18. After the maintenance, watch the night sky over Gweonid Forest comes alive and sparkle in thousands of lights as the zone turns to a festival period to let the East and the West come together as one in peace to honor the fallen during the fall of Auroria.

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

How do I participate?

Players level 10 and higher can begin their journey of giving thanks by speaking with NPC Denissi and assist in creating a lantern. NPCs Rojuni and Yallie offer even more ways to earn Lantern Festival Coins, too!

3 times each day, when the mysterious Yata Lantern appears, visit Mellius at 2 PM, 7 PM, and 12:00 AM UTC in Europe, or 12:00 PM, 5:00 PM, and 10:00 PM PDT in North America to find out what to do with it. Mellius will hang around for an hour each time, so worry not.

Use the Lantern Candle to help light the Dimmed Yata Lantern and transform it into a Lit Yata Lantern! Once the lantern is lit, your quest will be complete, and you’ll be awarded 3 Lantern Festival Coins, 1 Glimmershine Essence, and a special Gweonid Elixir buff offering +3% Evasion, +41 Attack Speed, and -4% Cast Time for 1 hour.

Additionally, you can receive additional Lantern Festival Coins by completing Achievements!

What can I receive?

All your hard work will not go unnoticed! Receive Lantern Festival Coins from doing the Festival quests and completing the achievements. Afterward, spend your hard-earned Coins at the Festival Gift Exchanger on Mirage Isle for some pretty cool items!
