[Snowflake Festival Overview]

Zachariel was a Great Mage of the Eye of Wisdom from the time 400 years ago when the Eye of Wisdom was still residing on the Kolydian continent. He was well known because of his benevolent deeds. In the midst of a harsh winter he would provide the needy with supplies.

Once the people of the Eye of Wisdom had come to Candara, they decided to keep this habit in order to foster a peaceful relationship with the local people. When the season of heavy snow had come they would, just as Zachariel had done, wear a red robe and provide the local people with supplies. This gesture helped many endure the long winters and also built trust between the people and the Eye of Wisdom. Soon we were doing this every winter and it became a custom and was named the Snowflake Festival.

After the Phirius Workshops had been set up, they meant to take advantage of this custom and decided to make some modifications to the red robe and thereafter let their people wear these robes while delivering presents to little children. Their actions won many praises from the people and also allowed them to make more money.

The Phirius Workshops taking a fancy to this custom would make the Snowflake Festival an even bigger event in the years to come. Each year more and more people took part in these activities creating this wonderful and exciting atmosphere that we can experience during the winter season nowadays.

  • In addition to the rewards from previous versions, the following NPCs will grand players Pyro Draconaris:
    • Snowland Supply Officer - when exchanging 10 Frost Reward Tickets for a reward, players will also additionally receive 10 Pyro Draconaris.
    • Jack Shackleton - when exchanging 10 Goody-Goody Certificates for a reward, players will also additionally receive 10 Pyro Draconaris.
  • During the Snowflake Festival players can exchange their Sagittarius Pets and Pyro Draconaris for a new Draco Pet: Phoebe Draco.
