Here is the official announcement thread for the Fall Festival of 2017!
Start Time: Saturday, October 28th at 12:00 PM
End Time: Sunday, November 26th at 11:59 PM
The Fall Festival is not only a celebration of the yearly harvest, but also a time where Sylestians enjoy everything spooky and frightful! It is an especially celebrated time of the year because it marks the yearly return of the Ryories! Over the next two weeks, you can participate in many various activities to obtain unique rewards, to find unique pets, and most importantly to have a lot of fun!
Diamond Sale https://www.sylestia.com/forums/?thread=53171
We will be having a Diamond Sale beginning Saturday, October 28th running through Sunday, November 5th. Please see the link above for full details!
New Pet Traits https://www.sylestia.com/forums/?thread=53260
In total, we have added 24 new Pet Traits into the game including 3 new Restricted Trait Sets! Click the link above view all of the new Traits.
Explore the Festival Zone https://www.sylestia.com/explore/newzone/?zone=umbrasveil
This zone is recommended for players using pets of Level 10 and above!
The above will take you to the Festival Zone for the Fall Festival, Umbra's Veil. Please note, if you are exploring another zone in Astryl's Vale, you will have to exit the zone first. If you are in a battle, you will have to finish your battle first.
The zone is currently host to 32 Wild Themed Sylesties, 16 of which are new this year, 9 Named, Mysterious Pumpkins, Sylesti Nests, hidden Treasure Chests, and so much more! Umbra's Veil is a brand new map and is the largest map yet for any Festival.
While not yet active, there will also be a zone-wide Event available with extra Named and extra goodies! We will post an announcement regarding this Event as soon as it becomes available.
Roaming the Festival Zone are also a slew of Hallowed Reapers who are known to be carrying a rare Undead Dragon Hatchling amongst other festival items. (this may still need to be added)
Sylesti Brewing has returned with some fine tuning and new features!
All players will start out with two free Cauldrons to use. You can always purchase additional one-time use Cauldrons for Diamonds, Gold, or Chocolate Coins! To begin brewing, just click on your Cauldron and fill it with Broth. After that you will need to add a Brewing Catalyst to your brew, which will determine which Themed Pet the Brew will produce when completed. You can find Brew Catalysts by participating in almost any of the Fall Festival's features or by purchasing them directly from the Festival Shop or the Diamond Shop.
Once you have your Sylesti Brew started, you will need to watch over it and keep it cooking at a good rate. Sometimes, the Brew will be out of balance and you will have to use a Brewing Agent to normalize it. Doing so will decrease the amount of time the Sylesti will be required to cook.
New this year is also a Quality and Bonus measurements. Preventing your Brew from having lingering Conditions and continuing to counteract Conditions will improve its Quality. If you keep your Brew at Perfect Quality, it will receive a Bonus every hour. If a Brew has certain amounts of Bonuses by the time it is completed, it will receive up to two special bonuses to the resulting Themed Pet! This may be a tad confusing, so I will try to break it down further.
There are four different tiers of Quality:
Normal: Slowest rate of Hourly Progress and Agent Progress towards completion. No Hourly Bonus. No Agent Bonus.
Good: Double rate of Hourly Progress towards completion. Slowest rate of Agent Progress towards completion. No Hourly Bonus. No Agent Bonus.
Great: Triple rate of Hourly Progress towards completion. Double rate of Agent Progress towards completion. No Hourly Bonus. Single Agent Bonus.
Perfect: Quadruple rate of Hourly Progress towards completion. Double rate of Agent Progress towards completion. Double Hourly Bonus. Single Agent Bonus.
Using an Expedient Brew Agent on a Brew will increase all Hourly and Agent Progress and Bonuses by 300% until the Brew is completed.
If a Condition is ignored for too long, then every Hour a Brew's Quality will decrease by one tier until settling back at Normal.
Each Brew can unlock two Bonuses. This can easily be tracked in the list of information for each Brew. For any Brew, the first Bonus is an additional boost to the resulting Themed Pet's Statistics, equal to two additional Ranks of using Spectral Essences. For Majestic Catalysts, the second Bonus is an additional two Ranks boosted to Statistics. However, for all other Catalysts, the second Bonus is an additional Carried Trait to an empty slot.
Furthermore, you can also use Brew Additives to alter characteristics about your Themed Pet!
Exceptional Blood Vial: The completed Brew will be a 3-Visible Pet (2-Visible if Majestic).
Greater Blood Vial: The completed Brew will be a 2-Visible Pet (1-Visible if Majestic).
Lesser Blood Vial: The completed Brew will be a 1-Visible Pet (2-Carry if Majestic).
Expedient Brew Agent: Removes the waiting period between incurred conditions. This allows repeated application of Brewing Agents until the Brew is complete. Additionally, triples both the passive growth and the Brew Agent growth until completed, as well as Bonus gained if in Perfect Quality. These can only be used once that specific Themed Pet has already been created once by anyone on the Site.
Spectral Essence: Boosts the Base Stats of a Pet by 100 Health and 5 Str, Int, Dex, and Agi. Can be used four times. Requires 2 per use.
Sticky Goo: Allows you to guarantee a Visible Trait in a specific eligible slot. Requires 2 per use.
Vampire Dust: Guarantees that a Visible Trait will have a hidden Carried Trait. Requires 2 per use.
Gummy Puppy Tail: Guarantees that the Pet will be a Male. Requires 6 per use.
Sugar and Spice: Guarantees that the Pet will be a Female. Requires 6 per use.
There are a total of 24 unique Themed Pets available from Sylesti Brewing. There are 3 Restricted Trait Majestic Themes, 7 Fabled Themes, and 14 Regular Themes.
Lastly, there are a handful of unique Titles available from Brewing!
Premier Brewmaster / Premier Brewmistress: First Player to finish any Sylesti Brew.

Fabled Brewmaster / Fabled Brewmistress: Finish all Fabled Sylesti Brews.

Trick or Treating https://www.sylestia.com/festival/festival_fall/trick_or_treat/
Trick or Treating is back! Visit all fellow Sylestians with your best Trick or Treat. Hosts can then either give you a complimentary Piece of Candy or give you a personal item (from a list of approved Festival-related items) from their Inventory. As a Trick or Treater, your goal is to collect each of the 21 unique Pieces of Candy. Once you have at least one of each, you can turn them into a Handful of Candy, which can be opened for awesome rewards!
You can view the status of your candy collecting by viewing your Trick or Treating profile. There are unique Titles that are available by participating. They are as follows:
-Trickster: Trick or Treat 500 times as a Visitor
-Candy Dispenser: Hand out 500 Pieces of Candy
-The Sweet Tooth: Create 5 Handfuls of Candy
-The Kind-Hearted: Hand out a Personal Item
Explore the Haunted House https://www.sylestia.com/festival/festival_fall/haunted_house/
The Haunted House is now open! Visit the link above to play!
You must purchase an entry with either 250 Diamonds, 500,000 Gold, or 750 Chocolate Coins. If using Chocolate Coins, be sure to consume them from your Inventory first to add them onto your account.
There are 3 Stages to the Haunted House: the Gloomy Cemetery, the Haunting First Floor, and the Eerie Basement. You begin in the Gloomy Cemetery with 8 Shovels and must dig from the available spots to find either buried treasure or the Ghostly Key. Finding the Ghostly Key allows you to advance to the next Stage, the Haunting First Floor.
In the second Stage, you get 6 Brooms and again must sweep for hidden treasure or the Ghostly Key. Finding the Ghostly Key again will allow you to enter the third and final Stage, the Eerie Basement.
In the final Stage, you get 4 Torches to use to reveal hidden treasure before the game ends and you can play again.
For each Stage that you advance to, the available prizes get better and better.
As you play, you will notice various tiles in all Stages covered with different Objects. Objects can be removed by consuming one of your Tools for that Stage and often hide the more rare prizes underneath!
Additionally, if you run out of Tools on a Stage, you can opt to purchase more Tools for Diamonds. However, you can only do this once per Stage.
Lastly, as a new addition to this year's Haunted House, you will sometimes find the Genie's Lamp! The Genie's Lamp is a special item that allows you to summon a Genie and be granted one of three available wishes. The Genie's Lamp also carries over from one game to the next until it is used, meaning you do not have to use it during the game that you found it! You can wait to use it at anytime! However, once used, it will be consumed until you find it again.
The available wishes will change depending on the current situation, but are grouped into 3 basic functions:
Remove All Objects
Grant the Ghostly Key
Grant Additional Tools
For all available prizes from the Haunted House, please refer to the bottom of the Haunted House page where all prizes are listed.
Throughout the duration of the Festival, there will be a total of 126 Contests running! There are 2 types of Contests: Enemies Defeated and Pets Nurtured. The 1st Place winner of each Contest will receive a 3-Visible Brewing Pet of that Species. The 2nd, 3rd, and 4th Place finishers of each Contest will receive a 2-Visible Brewing Pet of that Species. All top 10 winners will receive a Contest Leaderboard Pouch which can contain some of the Festival's best items!
Enemies Defeated: 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.
Pets Nurtured: In order to earn points for this Contest, you must nurture Pets of that Species. There are no other restrictions.
Lastly, all players can earn [Contest Reward Pouches] by earning so many points per Contest. There is no limit to the amount of pouches a player can earn. So the more you participate, the more that you'll receive! Reward pouches can contain various festival rewards.
