One chosen party participates in this challenge for the victory of the Cabal. Of the players participating in the Festival of Darkness, the party who recorded the best score in each grade will contribute some points to the Cabal it belongs to. The Festival of Darkness is divided by level and any players belonging to the Cabals of Dawn and Dusk can participate in it.
How to Participate
Players may participate only during the competition period. The party who wants to participate should pay Seal Stones to the Guide of the Festival in the Oracle. Priests in towns will teleport you to Oracle for free. The entry fee varies depending on the level and will be paid by party leaders.
The party must consist of minimum of 5 members belonging to the same Cabal, and the members of the party must correspond to the grade of the Festival they want to participate in. The characters who correspond to the level of the Festival, but have higher level skills than the party members may not participate. This happens when the character is de-leveled, but his skills learned from the previous higher level remain.
These challenges are always possible during the competition period and there is no limit in the number of challenges.
In the Oracle, where the Festival of Darkness occurs, experience loss is reduced to a quarter of the normal death penalty. If the competition is restarted within the Oracle, your party is moved to the nearby village when restarting. Within the center magic array in the Oracle, MP regenerates more quickly than normal. Players can be teleported to the Oracle and, when coming out, return to the place they left free of charge through the Priest of each village.
When players die, they will restart inside the room. Resurrection is not allowed within the Oracle. Archer monsters in the corners may pinpoint their attacks on healer classes.
Type of Challenges
The Festival of Darkness is divided into five grades as shown in the table below.
Blue Seal Stone
Green Seal Stone
Red Seal Stone
Teleporting to the battle ground is possible only two minutes before the Festival of Darkness starts. Once the enrollment is completed through the Guide of the Festival, the party receives the Quest of the Festival of Darkness. The party is immediately teleported to The Oracle and, after two minutes, may begin the Festival.
The Festival of Darkness continues for 18 minutes, when each party can hunt the monsters to acquire the Blood of the Sacrificed. The number of this certificate corresponds to the performance score in the Festival of Darkness. All the Blood of the Sacrificed acquired is awarded to the party leader.
A party who wants to give up in the middle of the Festival can do so through the female shaman found in center of the room. If they think the Festival is too easy, they can request stronger monsters. The stronger the monsters they kill, the more Blood of the Sacrificed they can acquire. Please note that drop chances for Blood of the Sacrificed will be lowered when accompanied by pets.
Registering the Results
After the Festival ends, the leader of the party must register the results with the Guide of the Festival within 40 minutes. If the party fails to register within this time, the results will become invalid. If the registered result is lower than the previous highest record, the record is not updated. The players can confirm the participating members and score of the party who set the highest record for each grade through the guide of the Festival.
After the competition period ends and their Cabal claims victory, the party members who set the highest record for each grade can receive Ancient Adena as compensation from the Guide of the Festival. After the entire amount of the entry fee is converted to Ancient Adena, the amount of compensation that is received is allocated to the winning parties.
Although a party may set the highest record in a specific grade, they cannot receive the prize if the Cabal they belong to loses.
The prize is paid only before the next competition period begins.
