This October 21st is the date that many of you have been waiting for. To be exact, it’s the start date of the Autumn Season Early Graduation!

In preparation for the upcoming early graduation, [CM] Nox has put together this GM Note to explain what you might want to know about the Autumn Season and Early Graduation.


Now then, let’s begin!


What is the Autumn Season Early Graduation schedule?

Adventurers who’ve had their fill of the Autumn Season servers can start their adventures in the regular servers a bit earlier with Early Graduation.


While graduating early from the season server does mean that you can enjoy the regular servers earlier and equip gear that season characters can’t equip, it also means that you will no longer be able to enjoy the perks of the season servers and participate in any season server events.


So, make sure you’re 100% ready before graduating early!

Early Graduation Schedule October 21, 2020 (Wed) after maintenance – November 18, 2020 (Wed) before maintenance
Normal Graduation Schedule

November 18, 2020 (Wed) after maintenance - December 2, 2020 (Wed) before maintenance

※ The end date of normal graduation is subject to change.

Adventurers who graduate early according to the schedule above are classified as “Early Graduation Adventurers.” However, there are a couple of requirements you must fulfill before you can graduate early. Let’s find out more below.


What are the Early Graduation requirements?

Early Graduation Requirements

- Achieved at least 228 main weapon AP and 291 DP (This does not include the awakening weapon AP listed in the equipment screen and is only 228 main weapon AP.)


- Adventurers who haven’t bought the Black Spirit Pass must have completed all of the “Season Pass Challenges” and received the rewards.


- Adventurers who have bought the “Black Spirit Pass” must have completed all of the “Season/Black Spirit Pass Challenges” and received the rewards.

※ AP and DP from the Adventure Logs are not counted for the requirements.

If you do not fulfill the early graduation requirements, you can’t use the “Honorable Adventurer's Certificate” item to become a regular character, so make sure to complete the Season/Black Spirit Pass Challenges and receive all the rewards before trying to graduate!


Additionally, if you’ve purchased an “[Event] Black Spirit Pass” and haven’t used it, you won’t be able to use the item after graduating, so that’s another thing you need to check your inventories for before graduating!


Now, once you’ve double-checked all the above and fulfilled the requirements, you’re ready to go find your ever-reliable companion in the season servers, the [Crow Merchants Guild Chief Manager] Fughar, and accept the quest “[Season Server Graduation] At the Crossroad” to graduate early.


Another thing! Early graduation isn’t something you must do! Adventurers who wish to take their time with the Autumn Season don’t need to graduate early.


Do I have to fulfill the requirements to graduate?

Don’t worry if you can’t fulfill the early graduation requirements.


After the early graduation period, normal graduation begins on November 18th (after maintenance), and anyone who wishes to graduate can do so without having to fulfill the early graduation requirements. At this point, you’ll also need to go to the [Crow Merchants Guild Chief Manager] Fughar, and accept the quest “[Season Server Graduation] At the Crossroad” once you want to graduate.


Same as with early graduation, make sure you check your inventories for an unused “[Event] Black Spirit Pass” since you won’t be able to use the item after you graduate!


Perilla's Star? What’s that?

We know some of you might be curious about the story hinted in the previous Autumn Season GM Note about Perilla’s Star. Thus, we’ve prepared this bit for you!


Presenting the Autumn Season’s special reward – Perilla's Star!

While the exact details on how to obtain Perilla’s Star will be revealed in future update details, Adventurers who graduate early will still be able to obtain Perilla’s Star. Don’t worry about missing out if you want to graduate early. And for Adventurers who couldn’t get the PEN(V) Capotia accessory for the Summer Season, once you’ve graduated after fully enjoying the Autumn Season and learned the story behind Perilla’s Star through a special quest... you’ll get a chance to select between the PEN(V) Capotia accessory or Perilla’s Star! Keep this in mind when you’re graduating!


P.S. The story behind Perilla’s Star is quite a tragic love story... I even ended up tearing up when I found out...


Tell us more about graduation!

Finally, our last corner is for Adventurers experiencing the season servers for the first time with the Autumn Season.


Let us delve into the details below. Just click open and read on if you’re curious!


[STEP 0]

Make sure you’re completely ready before graduating. You can’t enhance Tuvala gear or play on the season servers once you graduate.


[STEP 1]

Once you’re ready, accept the graduation quest from the Crow Merchants Guild Chief Manager, Fughar. You’ll obtain the “Honorable Adventurer's Certificate” from him, and if you use this item, you will immediately graduate, and your season character will be switched to a regular character.

[STEP 2]

After using the Honorable Adventurer's Certificate, it’s time to convert your season exclusive Tuvala gear.


You can obtain the “[Season] Tuvala Conversion Stone Box” from Fughar, which is a box that contains items that can convert season exclusive Tuvala gear to normal gear.

There is a total of 13 Tuvala Conversion Stones, which matches a full set of gear. Keep in mind that using the Tuvala Conversion Stone will result in items that can no longer be enhanced.

Before I forget! Each Conversion Stone can only convert one Tuvala item. That’s why you need to be careful when choosing which Tuvala gear to convert for each gear slot! You don’t want to regret accidently converting a TET(IV) Tuvala Helmet instead of a PEN(V) one...

[STEP 3]

Graduating from the Autumn Season also means that you can obtain the “Gift Box Full of Memories” that Fughar has prepared for you.


Probably the biggest point of the Gift Box Full of Memories is the [Season] Boss Gear Exchange Coupon that you can obtain from it! As for this item... it almost “magically” changes a Tuvala gear to Boss gear!


First, you’ll need to accept a quest from Fughar to use the [Season] Boss Gear Exchange Coupon.

- [Season] Even Sharper Weapon: Main Weapon

- [Season] Even Sharper Weapon: Sub-Weapon

- [Season] Even Sturdier Armor: Helmet

- [Season] Even Sturdier Armor: Armor… etc.


And don’t forget! You must make sure the Tuvala gear you’ll exchange has already been converted to normal gear!


What if you’ve already converted the Tuvala gear that you’ll use to exchange and accepted the quest? Then, it’s time to go to the Veila blacksmith, Tranan Underfoe, and do the following:

① Hand over the [Season] Boss Gear Exchange Coupon.

② Hand over the Tuvala gear that’ll be exchanged.


Exchanging for Boss gear will result in the exchanged gear being one enchantment level lower as follows:
‘PEN (V) → TET(IV)', 'TET(IV) → TRI(III)'


This is something you should know from reading the previous Summer Season GM Notes, right~? Wait, you haven’t read them yet? You don’t know what Tuvala gear can be exchanged for Boss gear?! Don’t wait any longer and take a look at the past GM Notes!

[STEP 4]

As you know, Fughar has prepared a “Gift Box Full of Memories” that contains a variety of items for Adventurers who’ve diligently played the Autumn Season.

The Gift Box Full of Memories contains a variety of items such as Cron Stone x100, Advice of Valks, [Event] Secret Book of Old Moon (7 Days), [Event] Elion's Tear, and more to help you in your adventurers in the regular server.



And that’s a wrap for the Autumn Season Graduation, we hope you didn’t miss a single thing!


Until next time!
