Summer gas officially started in EOS! The Summer Patch brings us summer event, Raid entry count was updated, Daily Login rewards, Season 3 Magic Lamps, Party member kicking, World Map Transparency, BUG Fixes and so on.
The time has come to take your Soulkeeper on a nice vacation! You will discover a completely new map, which gives you access to daily and repeatable quests! This new map gives you access to 2 different islands: Manta Reef and Watermelon Island this island is only accessible when the water recedes, so you will be able to travel there once every hour, for half an hour (for instance: Open from 9.00 until 9.30, then closed from 9.30 until 10.00, and open again from 10.00 until 10.30 and so on). You will have to talk to the Watermelon Island Entry Staff NPC in order to travel there.
This exotic area is populated by the adorable and cheerful Pori tribe. The Pori tribe is a pacifist one, they hate violence, so you will have to leave your weapon in your inventory and the Smart Matching functions will be disabled during your stay on the island.
One tribe member is called Dig Duv who you will find in the main cities: Mnemos Town, Ignea, Rimen, and Laterna. Talk to Dig Duv, and you will get to visit the new islands!
Before heading to the beach, you will obviously need a swimsuit! There are 2 ways to get a swimsuit: From the Season 3 Magic Lamps or by completing Dig Duvs quests, upon completing the quests, you will receive a special currency: the Manta Reef Coin. You will have the possibility to acquire numerous items In exchange for the Manta Reef Coin via the Specialty Merchant, such as the new Coconut Crab pet! Also you will unlock 3 new achievements: Pinch Me, Im Dreaming! (Misc./Pet), Nowhere to Run (Event) and Duck, Dodge, Dive Doh (Event).
You may run around the island or use your mount if you wish! Complete the quests, take part in the mini games, and chat with the Pori tribe: all of this will make your stay unforgettable!
NOTE: Everything that is related to the Summer Event will be deleted once the event is over (on August 19th, 23:59 GMT+2/5:59 PM EDT) except Costumes, Pets, Manta Reef currency (you may save it for next year), Achievements, Titles and Prismatic Water Balloons.
