Visit the page above to see all of the available Themed Pets from this year's Summer Festival!
Festival Exploration Zone https://www.sylestia.com/explore/newzone/?zone=esiorscove
This zone is recommended for players using pets of Level 10 and above!
Esior's Cove has returned! This map is very large and hosts a total of 16 different Named across 8 different spawn locations! There are 12 Named who drop brand new Avatar Sets and 4 Named who drop new Pre-Colored versions of some of last year's Avatar Sets.
While exploring, players can encounter various enemies and Themed Pets. There are a total of 34 Wild Themed Pets that can be found in Esior's Cove, 17 of which are new, including a Wild Themed Ferrikki!
Players who battle with Level 60 Pets or higher will face tougher encounters within Esior's Cove. However, this will reward them with a double loot chance on every Named victory for Avatar Items and a bonus loot chance on other enemies!
Players can find virtually all of this year's festival items by exploring and battling in this zone. So if you're unsure of where to go to participate in the festival, this is the place to start.
Sylesti Sand Sculpting has returned! While similar to the Spring Festival's Sylesti Garden, there are some differences. Players must first fill one of their Sandboxes with Sand and then select a Sculpting Catalyst that they've collected in order to begin. Every so often, your Sculpture will need to be conditioned by using the appropriate Sand Sculpting Agent:
Deformed: Block of Sand
Cracked: Vial of Seawater
Soaked: Essence of Sun
For each Sand Sculpting Agent that you use on your Sculpture, it will progress towards completion. Once complete, you can collect it for a unique Sculpture Themed Pet!
The details of your pet will depend on what Catalyst and what Additives you used on your Sculpture during its creation. Below is a list of all Additives that can be used on Sculptures:
Prismatic Pearl: The completed Sculpture will be a 3-Visible Pet (2-Visible if Majestic).
Golden Pearl: The completed Sculpture will be a 2-Visible Pet (1-Visible if Majestic).
Mundane Pearl: The completed Sculpture will be a 1-Visible Pet (2-Carry if Majestic).
Quick Drying Agent: Removes the waiting period between incurred conditions. This allows repeated application of Sand Sculpting Agents until the Sculpture is complete. *This can only be used once that specific Themed Pet has already been harvested once by anyone on the Site* Siren Tears: 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.
Sea Pebbles: Allows you to guarantee a Visible Trait in a specific eligible slot. Requires 2 per use.
Enriched Sand: Guarantees that a Visible Trait will have a hidden Carried Trait. Requires 2 per use.
Blue Coating: Guarantees that the Pet will be a Male. Requires 6 per use.
Pink Coating: Guarantees that the Pet will be a Female. Requires 6 per use.
As an added bonus to this feature, you are also able to work on other player's Sculptures! Simply visit their Beach and use one of the available Sculpting Agents or Additives on their Sculptures. They will be notified of your caring gesture and may even return the favor! You will also earn Sun Tokens for being such a friendly neighbor! You may even get lucky and find an exclusive Avatar Item!
There are a total of 26 new Sculpting Themed Pets available: 4 Majestic Themed Pets, 8 Fabled Themed Pets, and 14 Regular Themed Pets. Additionally, last year's Fabled and Regular Themed are still available and appear as "Aged".
The following Titles are also available:

Beach Treasure Seeking has returned! In order to play, you must first collect any of the three Beach Shovels or any of the three Fishing Poles. Each type has three ranks: Wooden, Iron, and Majestic. While Wooden and Iron tools have the same prize pool, Iron tools will yield much better prizes on average. Majestic tools have not only a better, exclusive prize table, but they will also yield much better prizes on average compared to Iron tools.
Just simply visit the page, select a tile, and select the tool that you wish to use to search for treasure!
Every 8 hours, you can select to move to a new map where all tiles will be reset. Each time you move, you will have a chance of spawning bonus tiles. Bonus tiles are any tile with a special object on them. Using a tool on a bonus tile will improve your chances of finding the more rare items!
Additionally, purchasing a 'Move Approval' will increase your chances of spawning bonus tiles.

Additionally, each Pet will come with its very own Certified Name!
Mermaid Shells can only be collected from the Beach Treasure Seeking feature. So bust out your fishing poles and shovel and get hunting!
The Festival Task Log is back and is full of 40+ 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. Be sure to complete as many as you can!
Throughout the duration of the Festival, there will be a total of 132 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 Sculpture Pet of that Species. The 2nd, 3rd, and 4th Place finishers of each Contest will receive a 2-Visible Sculpture 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.
As an extra bonus, players will also have the opportunity to earn up to 9 Mermaid Shells with each of the three rounds of Leaderboard Contests. For every 5,000 cumulative points earned in each Round, players will receive a random Mermaid Shell as a reward!

Krin, I don't think the sculpting is working right? It's been over an hour and no condition has happened to them yet. :/
Edit: Ah, nevermind. Looks like they finally had something happen.
