Here is the official announcement thread for the 2018 Spring Festival!

Start Time: Saturday, May 26th at 12:00 PM
End Time: Wednesday, June 20th at 11:59 PM


The Spring Festival is when all Sylestians celebrate the end of the cold winter and the start of new growth - both figuratively and literally! Take time to enjoy the outdoors and enjoy everything the beautiful world has to offer as it begins a new cycle for the next few seasons!

The Spring Festival also marks the return of the Aeridini! Throughout the Spring Festival, these elusive pollinators can be found throughout the Festival Zone. So be sure to catch as many as you can before they return to their nesting grounds for the remainder of the year!


Diamond Sale Now Through June 3rd


New Genes and Mutations Released

We have released 2 new Restricted Trait Sets into the game!

The following species received a new Restricted Trait Set: Aeridini and Morkko!

*Actual Themed Shown. Obtained from Majestic Seeds using the Sylesti Garden.*


Spring Arcanist Aeridini



Owlbear Morkko





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 for its second year! This map is very large and hosts a total of 18 different Named across 9 different spawn locations! There are over 40 treasure nodes hidden around the map as well! There are also 33 different Themed Pets able to be found in Astryl's Meadow which includes 17 new Themed - including one for the Ferrikki!

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

The Egg Hunt for this year has been disabled. We will look into options of releasing one at some point during the festival, but it may remain shelved until next year.




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 25 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 Flower 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 Flower 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 Flowers 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: Instantly grows the Pet to maximum. This can only be used once that specific Themed Pet has already been harvest once by anyone on the Site.

As an added bonus to this feature, you are also able to Tend other player's Flower Pets! Simply visit their Garden and Tend their Flowers as you would your own. They will be notified of your caring gesture and may even return the favor! You will also earn Decorated Eggs for being such a friendly neighbor!

There are a total of 49 Flower Pets available: 6 Majestic Themed Pets, 15 Fabled Themed Pets, and 28 Regular Themed Pets! This includes 24 brand new Themed Pets and 25 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 Flowers at least 25 times.
Green Thumb: Harvest at least 1 of every Regular Flower species.
Fabled Green Thumb: Harvest at least 1 of every Fabled Flower species.
Majestic Green Thumb: Harvest at least 1 Majestic Flower Pet.
Omniscient Gardener: Harvest at least 1 of all 22 Regular/Fabled Flower Pet species and any 3 Majestic Flower Pets.
Premier Green Thumb: Harvest the very first Flower Pet.




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.




Spring Contests

All top 10 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.

Fest zones usually scale to your level. I think there's a recommended minimum of lv10+, but otherwise any level should be able to enter and do okay against the enemies.
