Event Walkthrough

Getting Started

  • Run on Natural AP until the one-week time lock lifts (~Dec 17th)
  • Avoid Max limit breaking Cherry Icicle Craft Essence until you have enough left to fill the remaining slots.
  • Focus on clearing the Main Story Quests to unlock the new free quests get released daily.
  • Each new Free Quest will be better for farming compared to the previous.
  • The Box Festival quest requires Christmas Gongs to run. This node is only worth clearing for the first-time clear reward. You can worry about clearing this after you finish the Main Story Questline.
  • Clear the available Main Quest. Then farm the newest Free Quest until you get enough Lotto Currency to get the amount of Christmas Gongs needed to do the available fighting quests. Then clear the fighting quests for Black Presents needed to unlock the next Main Quest.
  • After Dec 17th Login reset, you can choose between farming either the Heavyweight or Super Heavyweight Free Quest for optimal lotto farming.
  • You should go ahead and spent all the AP Fruits you have for this event. It is absolutely worth it and there won’t be another Lottery Event until around Summer/Spring 2023.

Event Free Quest Drop Rates

  • In terms of efficiency, the Free Quest does not have as good of a material drop chance as Singularity free quests. Farm it primarily for the Lotto Currency, the material drops can be considered a bonus.
  • Heavyweight and Super Heavyweight nodes give virtually identical Lotto Drop rates. Heavyweight is easier to loop farm. Super Heavyweight requires Combat Uniform Mystic Code swapping to 3-turn, but it has better Ascension Material drop rates and it provides Event Shop Currency as well.
