    Summer Festival

    • The NovaRO Summer Festival has returned once again!
      • The Summer Festival is an island with mini-games unique to NovaRO where you can earn unique hats!

    • This year, at the closing of each Summer Festival, instead of always closing the festival with Fishing, half of the Summer Festivals will close with a brand-new activity, a live performance of the rock band The Hunter Inside!
      • Participating in the Concert will earn you Guitar Picks, which you can exchange in Brad's Guitar Pick Shop for different hats.
    • We're introducing a Raffle system. Every character entering the Summer Festival automatically enters a Raffle.
      • You can obtain additional draw chances at the Raffle Ticket Seller and by exploring the island.
      • The Raffle will be held at the end of every Summer Festival.
      • The Raffle winner will get an exclusive title [Radiant Glow] and headgear 33016.pngSummer Glow.
    • The new 33022.pngSplish Splash Pet Egg has been added to the Nova Shop for 2,500 NP.

      • 32994.png Festival Pride -- You can start the quest at the Summer Festival Island (182, 51).

      • 32993.png Seppl Hat -- You can start the quest at the Summer Festival Island (205, 76).

    Why remove quests from MH? That's the second time the staff makes this kind of change after the MH week has rotated. 

    I kinda don't like losing 2 bsb in a week for not having rushed Nyso / Garro / Nyia or Gara


    EDIT: Can't math or read.


    Conversely, those who rushed weeklies have 1 bsb less?

    16.5k summer coins....? Is it gonna be like this every week? 16.5k is quite a lot..I don't know how's the new content but every summer (3 years ago, 2 years ago and last year) most of people were able to get max 1.5k coins during one hour. Let's say the event opens every 3h and you can't participate whenever it opens... it's basically 11h of farm for coins just for one completed weekly quest. Like...what?

    For a quest you have 7 days to complete. And Coin Generation has been drastically increased from 2 and 3 years ago.

    They were reduced. If they're not, that's a bug. Make a bug report.
