Featured Event: Halloween Event
OCTOBER 20 – NOVEMBER 10, 2021


INTRODUCTION

Celestial Points will return as the event currency for this Halloween. Any Celestial Points that were acquired from a previous event that was not spent will not be accessible. To earn Celestial Points, players must either complete Daily Quests, World Quests, or both. The Event Shop will be removed along with the end of the event and additional purchase time will no longer be provided. All final purchases must be made before November 10, 2021.

To begin participating in the event, players must first speak to Eddie for a brief introduction and access to the user interface (UI) for Celestial Points as well as the Seasonal Event Map. Please note that players can only activate the visual UI on ONE character from the account, and the main character of the account is most recommended to commence the event with. Other characters from the account will not be able to view the UI and completing any activities on those characters mentioned below will not grant you Celestial Points. Do ensure that you begin the event with your main character to avoid any complications for the event. Once the UI has been granted, players can then proceed to the Seasonal Event Map via the Dimensional Mirror.

All dates and times mentioned for the event are in GMT +8, please use the World Time Buddy application for conversion to other timezones.

Halloween Surprise Style Box

Overview
The Summer Surprise Style Box (or the Seasonal Surprise Style Box) is a separate curated list of previously released items from the monthly Surprise Style Box that fits the theme of the current season.

The Seasonal Surprise Style Box will cost 15,000 NX per attempt, where items last for 90 days upon acquisition, and will mostly include items that were most sought after during their release.

Head to the Cash Shop and hover over the 'Event' option, then select 'SSB'. Select the 'Buy' option for 'Halloween Surprise Style Box'.
