Neverwinter is set to host its Feast of Lanterns event, celebrating the Year of the Dragon, from Thursday, February 8 at 7:30am PT to Thursday, February 15 at 7:30am PT. The event welcomes envoys from Shou and Kozakura, who have been invited by Lord Neverember to share their New Year festivities with the citizens of Neverwinter.
Event Activities and Participation:
Participants in the Feast of Lanterns event will have the opportunity to engage in various activities to celebrate the lunar New Year. By taking part in these activities, players can earn event-specific currencies, namely Dragon Coins and Lunar Coins, which can be exchanged for rewards.
- Nightly Fireworks: Players can assist in the fireworks display near the Hall of Justice to contribute to the festive atmosphere.
- Red Envelopes: There’s a quest to distribute red envelopes to NPC adventurers in Protector’s Enclave, reflecting the tradition of giving during the New Year.
- Comfort Dogs: To mitigate the impact of fireworks on the local canine population, players can participate in comforting startled dogs. This quest rewards players with a unique /pet emote upon first completion.
The event offers a variety of rewards, including the Juvenile Jade Dragonnel Companion and the New Year’s Dragonnel Mount, which require Dragon Coins and Lunar Coins respectively for redemption. Additional rewards, such as Shou Ceremonial weapon transmutes and festive items like Mochi, Niangao, Mooncake, and Fireworks, are also available, allowing participants to immerse themselves in the celebration.
Zen Market Offerings:
During the Feast of Lanterns event, the Zen Market will feature exclusive items, including the Lunar Coinpurse, various hairstyles, companions (Boar Shoat, Festive Tiger), and mounts (New Year’s Boar, New Year’s Tiger). The Yojimbo Companion is also available for a limited time, offering players the chance to add a powerful ally to their roster.
Participants should note that Dragon Coins and future animal coins will expire after the event concludes, adding an element of timeliness to their participation and reward collection.
