Themed Pet List
https://www.sylestia.com/festival/festival_spring/themed_list/

Visit the page above to see all of the available Themed Pets from this year's Spring Festival!




Festival Exploration Zone
https://www.sylestia.com/explore/newzone/?zone=astrylsmeadow
This zone is recommended for players using pets of Level 10 and above!

Astryl's Meadow has returned! This map is very large and hosts a total of 14 different Named across 7 different spawn locations! There are over 40 treasure nodes hidden around the map as well! There are also 34 different Themed Pets able to be found in Astryl's Meadow which includes 17 brand new Themed!

Astryl's Meadow is also the only place to find and capture Wild Aeridini!

The Egg Hunt has returned! There are two variations of the Egg Hunt available this year. In order to begin the Egg Hunt, find Justinia Aurorelius just to the East of the entrance to Astryl's Meadow.

Basic Egg Hunt: Available to everyone and can be enjoyed completely free of charge. However, there is a 6 Hour waiting period between hunts while we move around and hide all of the prizes each time! Prizes available from the Basic Egg Hunt include Decorated Eggs, Mystery Seed Pouches, Garden Supplies, unique Avatar Items, and even Themed Pets themselves! However, the more premium prizes are quite rare from the Basic Egg Hunt.

Mythic Egg Hunt: Available to everyone who is willing to pay the Entry Fee. The Entry Fee can be paid with either 400 Diamonds, 800,000 Gold, or 2,000 Decorated Eggs. You can purchase entry into the Mythic Egg Hunt at any time and as many times as you wish. There is no waiting period! Prizes available from the Mythic Egg Hunt include Decorated Eggs, Majestic, Fabled, Regular, and Mystery Seed Pouches, Premium Fertilizers, Root Strengtheners, Large Baskets of Enrichments, unique Avatar Items, and Themed Pets! The premium prizes are much more common from the Mythic Egg Hunt compared to the Basic Egg Hunt. Additionally, there are more Sparkling Easter Eggs, twice as many Mysterious Keys, double the encounter rate of Themed Pets, and you get an extra 40 Steps to find all the goodies!

Diamond Purchased Mythic Egg Hunt: If a Player purchases an entry to the Mythic Egg Hunt using Diamonds, they will have a chance of encountering a legendary Water Nymph Nephini during their hunt! This bonus is in addition to everything else that the Mythic Egg Hunt offers.

The rules for either Egg Hunt are the same. Once you enter, you will be placed at a random starting location within the designated maze area. You will have a limited amount of steps to take; so travel carefully! Your goal is to find as many of the hidden Easter Eggs as you can! There will always be a minimum of 20 Easter Eggs hidden within the maze.

Additionally, keep an eye out for the Mysterious Key hidden within the maze. This key can be used to unlock the Mysterious Temple within the maze where you can battle a Treasure Boss! If you manage to collect all 20 Eggs and defeat the Treasure Boss, you will receive a worthy Title!

Shared Garden

Enchanted Water: Players can collect Enchanted Water by doing virtually anything inside the Festival Zone, Astryl's Meadow.

Using Enchanted Water: Players have the option of visiting any of the 22 Flowers in the Shared Garden. This area is located directly to the West of the Zone In of Astryl's Meadow. You will be able to speak to Sadie Wildflower at any time to ask her some questions regarding the Shared Garden.

Each of the 22 Flowers represents one of the Regular or Fabled Garden Seeds. Players can choose which one that they want to use their Enchanted Water on. Each Flower is a community shared Flower. This means that if I use enough of my Enchanted Water on, say the Faelora Flower, then it will finish and start an event for the Faelora for the entire community!

To actually use your Enchanted Water, just simply interact with the Flower you want to work on and use the available buttons to add your Enchanted Water to the Flower. You can do so in increments of 5 or 25.

Fully Grown Flowers: As more Enchanted Waters are used on a Flower, it will continue to grow. Eventually, it will reach 100% and be ready to Bloom. At this point, no more Enchanted Waters can be used on it until it resets.

Once a Flower is ready to Bloom, it will schedule a zone-wide Event. If there is already a pending queue of Events, it will be added to the bottom of the list. If there is not a queue, then in 10-15 minutes, the event for this Flower will begin.

There will be a server-wide message in Region Chat once an Event is scheduled. Additionally, players can track the current schedule at any point by looking at the Zone Progression area.

A Flower Bloom Event: Once the countdown has finished and a Bloom Event has officially begun, players will have 20 minutes to roam around the zone and reap the benefits of the Bloom. The current benefits are as follows:

1. All base Wild Themed Pet encounter rates are doubled. This effect does not stack with a Perfume of Themed Attraction.

2. Players can now encounter Flower Fairies. Flower Fairies can drop an assortment of rewards including the following items:

(Level 60+ only)
-[Tamed Aeridini]
-The Garden Seed of the current Blooming Flower
-[Composted Seed (Majestic)], [Composted Seed (Fabled)], [Composted Seed (Regular)]

-[Premium Fertilizer Bag], [Regular Fertilizer Bag]
-[Root Strengthener], [Blue Tree Sap], [Pink Tree Sap], [Genetic Bonding], [Genetic Splicer]
-[Large Basket of Enrichments], [Small Basket of Enrichments]
-[Decorated Egg]


3. Players can also encounter Spring Blossom pets of the species of the Blooming Flower. These are wild pets that are guaranteed to have the Spring Blossom Trait and are guaranteed to either be Epic or Legendary pets.

And yes, this includes the Fabled species that are not normally Wild. Yes, this includes Puffadores and Ny'vene.

Unlimited Chances: Once the Blooming Event begins, the Flower will have been reset and ready to receive more Enchanted Water.

Once the Event ends, if another is already queued up, it will begin.

Players can continuously trigger Events however they want for the remaining duration of the Festival.




Sylesti Garden
https://www.sylestia.com/festival/festival_spring/sylesti_garden/

The much renowned Sylesti Garden is back! All players will have access to two Planting Pots at all times. You can purchase additional one-time Planting Pots if needed up to a maximum of 30 Pots at one time. Once you have a Planting Pot available, interact with it to fill it with Dirt for a small amount of Gold. Once filled with Dirt, you can plant one of the 47 Seeds available this festival. Seeds can be found throughout the Festival Zone or by purchasing Seed Pouches from the Diamond Shop or Festival Shop. They can also be found from Contest Reward Pouches.

Once you've planted a Seed, you can now watch it grow! Frequently, your growing Plant will require nurturing, such as being Parched, Wilted, or Overgrown. You can cure these ailments by using Enrichments on it. Enrichments include: Enriched Water, Sun's Glow, and Weed-B-Gone. Every time that your Plant is Enriched, it grows 1 Hour faster. Through the course of its growing time, you will have the opportunity to decrease its growth time considerably! So be sure to Tend your Plant as much as possible! Enrichments can be obtained from the same methods as Seed Pouches.

In addition to Enrichments, you can also give Fertilizer to your Flowers. Adding Fertilizer will increase the amount of Traits that your Flower Pet will hatch with. There are 3 types of Fertilizer: Lesser Fertilizer (1-Visible*), Greater Fertilizer (2-Visible*), and Exceptional Fertilizer (3-Visible*). Fertilizer can be obtained through the same methods as the other Garden Supplies. Lastly, if you have excess Lesser Fertilizer or Greater Fertilizer, you can combine a bulk amount of them and upgrade them to the next level.

* = This applies to the Regular and Fabled Seeds only. Majestic Seeds use the following system: Lesser Fertilizer (2-Carry), Greater Fertilizer (1-Visible), and Exceptional Fertilizer (2-Visible)

Lastly, you can now use Additives on your Flowers to further enhance them! The following Additives are available:

Blue Tree Sap: Guarantees that the Pet will be a Male.
Pink Tree Sap: Guarantees that the Pet will be a Female.
Genetic Bonding: Allows you to guarantee a Visible Trait in a specific eligible slot.
Genetic Splicer: Guarantees that a Visible Trait will have a hidden Carried Trait.
Root Strengthener: Boosts the Base Stats of a Pet by 100 Health and 5 Str, Int, Dex, and Agi. Can be used four times.
Miracle Grow: Increases the effectiveness of Hourly Growth and of Enrichments by 600% and Bonus Growth by 400%. This can only be used once that specific Themed Pet has already been harvest once by anyone on the Site.

Bonus Growth: For every Enrichment used on a growing Plant, it will receive a Bonus Point. After so many Bonus Points, the Plant will gain a Bonus Tier. There are a maximum of 2 Tiers to be earned. They offer the following rewards:

Tier 1: For both Majestic and Regular/Fabled Plants, they receive a permanent boost to their Base Stats.
Tier 2 (Regular/Fabled Plants): For Regular/Fabled Plants, they receive a bonus Carried Trait.
Tier 2 (Majestic): For Majestic Pets, they receive an even further permanent boost to their Base Stats.

As an added bonus to this feature, you are also able to Tend other player's Plants! Simply visit their Garden and Tend their Plant as you would your own, with exception to the use of Additives. They will be notified of your caring gesture and may even return the favor! You will also earn Decorated Eggs, and sometimes rare unique Avatar Items, for being such a friendly neighbor!

There are a total of 49 Flower Pets available: 5 Majestic Themed Pets, 16 Fabled Themed Pets, and 28 Regular Themed Pets! This includes 27 brand new Themed Pets and 22 Themed Pets from last year.

There are also 5 Titles available from the Sylesti Garden! They are as follows:

The Tender: Tend other player's Plants at least 25 times.
Green Thumb: Harvest at least 1 of every available Regular Garden species.
Fabled Green Thumb: Harvest at least 1 of every available Fabled Garden species.
Majestic Green Thumb: Harvest at least 1 Majestic Garden Pet.
Omniscient Gardener: Harvest at least 1 of all 22 available Regular/Fabled Garden Pet species and any 3 unique Majestic Garden Pets.
Premier Green Thumb: Harvest the very first Garden Pet amongst all Players. Will also receive a [Peerless Avatar Token]!




Task Log
https://www.sylestia.com/festival/festival_spring/task_list/

The Festival Task Log is back and is full of 30+ Tasks for all sorts of things during the Festival. How this works is just simply complete whatever is required of the Task and credit will automatically be tallied into your Task Log. Once you have completed the Task the required amount of times, you will receive whatever the reward for the Task is. It's that simple!

There are both Daily Tasks, which reset every day at midnight, and Festival Tasks, which can only be completed once per Festival.

Players who are able to complete every Festival Task will receive a [Peerless Avatar Token] as their reward!




Spring Contests

The 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th Place finishers of each Contest will receive a 2-Visible Flower Pet of that Species. All top 15 winners will receive a Contest Leaderboard Pouch which can contain some of the Festival's best items!

Enemies Defeated Contest: In order to earn points for this Contest, you must defeat enemies inside the Festival Zone with pets of that Species. Having multiple Pets of the same Species counts as multiple points. Additionally, having various Pets in your Party counts for each of their respective Contests.

A note for everyone. if your pets die in the myth maze your egg run just ends and you cant get back into it. Im not sure why mums pets tanked so hard but if i had known it was going to throw her out the maze she just spent 800k of dias on i would have sent my pets over for her to do the temple boss. She still had over 300 steps left. I am more than mad about this -.-

Please see above. Maybe it can be changed so that you just go back to standing in front of the very powerful pony instead of 400d wasted?

I can try and see what I can do, but it will take a bit of work. None of those systems are set up in that way. I'll first have to add in a way for the Egg Hunt data to retain the player's current coordinates so that those coordinates are saved even if they exit the Zone. Then I'll have to update the Justinia conversation to have a path that detects if an Egg Hunt is active and then allow the player to re-enter and teleport them to the last set coordinates.

It will take a bit of time to get all of that put together.

sorry to be a pain. It just feels like a total waste of dias. She was going in there primarily to see if she could get a neph to be a mate to mine so the fact she could have run back and forth till she had 50 steps left and scooped up any nephs that appeared instead of rushing straight into the temple.... yeah feels so wasteful and im more mad than she is but she is thinking of quitting entirely after it

I am sorry to hear that. I can understand how it would be frustrating. It wasn't really by design to work that way, there just isn't any infrastructure atm for me to have any other options.

I would be happy to reimburse the run for them if they want to send me a PM.

Hey Krin - couple notes

1. Under the basic egg hunt on this post it says "However, there is a 4 Hour waiting period between hunts while we move around and hide all of the prizes each time!"
When talking to the lady she says "However, there is a 6 Hour waiting period between hunts while we move around and hide all of the prizes each time!"
Not sure which is supposed to be

2. Under the mythic egg hunt on this post it says "The Entry Fee can be paid with either 400 Diamonds or 800,000 Gold." but when talking to the lady it includes the price of 2,000 decorated eggs

Thank you for all the work you do on this site! I love all the new things you've been giving us lately
