Christmas Content Pass
Ho ho ho! Are you kids ready to collect Candy Canes? This Content Pass is similar to the Bjorn Content Pass, featuring antique content alongside a shorter duration. It begins on December 22nd and runs through January 8th.
As a special bonus, the event also features a Talent Point (or 100 Ascension Shards if you already own all of them). There’s also the Santa Claus/Mrs. Claus secret title for those brave shopkeepers who manage to complete every task!
Sia’s story has concluded! The swan flies free!

Dragon Invasion has earned a bad (but well deserved) reputation for being a buggy event. Seems like something would go wrong with every other month! And whenever we’d fix that, something else would break like a never ending game of whack-a-mole.
For this update, we’ve taken the time to completely re-code it from scratch. Though it is not any different visually, it should run a lot smoother and be much, much more stable from here on out.
As an added bonus, the event leaderboard now supports the display of scores for every phase individually.
Guildmate Shop Visits
The system will now try to prioritize guildmates that have logged in most recently, reducing the odds of a guildmate you can’t visit because they’re playing a different (out-of-date) version of the game.
Added two new possible blueprint upgrades: Bonus Favor and Bonus Airship Power. These improve an item’s score value during their respective events. It is not retroactively added to current items (with some exceptions below) but future items may rarely make use of them.
In Portrait mode, the two arrows used to cycle between customers at the counter are now found at the bottom of the screen, near the “Wait” button. We found it quite a bit more comfortable on the thumb, and they no longer poke off-screen when handling big value items.
An error message will now appear when attempting to claim a multicraft that would overflow your inventory.
When dusting a guildmate’s shop, Furniture and Pets now have an equal chance at being selected for dusting instead of Pets being prioritized.
The following Blueprints have received an Airship Power blueprint upgrade: Propeller-Pike, Baross’ Backup, Sky Pirate Outfit, Dragonseeker Goggles. In every case, the upgrade it replaces has been integrated into the base blueprint’s statistics.
King Reinhold will be available as a Guest Champion on January 8th until the 11th.
