the opening of the Winter Season on Dec 22, 2020 (Tues)!


Adventurers who’ve enjoyed the Winter Season
can now receive the graduation quest on Jan 27, 2021.


I’m sure many adventurers have been waiting for the Winter Season Graduations!
Let’s find out how it’s done with GM!

How to Graduate

Graduation Notices

- “Honorable Adventurer's Certificate” obtained during Graduation Quest can be used in the normal servers. 


Adventurers who graduate early from the Winter Season will be able to accept the long-awaited quest to obtain the “Season Special Gift Exchange Coupon".

(※ The quest above can only be accepted and completed by a level 20 or higher Winter Season character or a normal character that was converted from the Winter Season.)

At the end of this quest, you’ll obtain “Season Special Gift Exchange Coupon” as a reward

which can be exchanged into one of the three items below by speaking to NPC Fughar.

(However, if you’ve already received the Season Special Gift from Spring/Summer, you cannot receive it again.)

Is there any AP/DP requirements again for early graduation?
2021-01-20 10:24
@Nyuuzu Hmm read bro, if you read it clearly says "This Winter Season’s graduation is special in that it can be done by anyone!", see anyone, and also there's no saying of AP DP req
2021-01-20 12:47
@Lahnfier hmmm. I think Nyuu's question is valid, cos there's no explicit statement saying that theres no ap/dp requirement. Im sure a lot of us would wonder if there is really an ap/dp requirement. The statement you posted there is an implied message,
hence no harm in asking for clarifications x(
2021-01-20 13:01
@Nyuuzu No
2021-01-27 11:08
@Lahnfier lol if dont want to answer jsut shut up ..he/she is asking why so toxic ?
2021-02-04 02:09
Question: I cannot see the [Season] Fughar's Gift Quest for My Nova (Seasoned Character)... I cannot seem to get the Pen Capotia gift. I also have the item exchange Tuvala to Boss Gear, but I cannot seem to change the Tuvala because I dont have that Item
conversion crystal that lets you use Tuvala outside the season server.
2021-01-20 14:42
@Johannus You would only able to do it after next week maintenance at 27 Jan lol.
2021-01-20 17:05
