Ahnimar Founder's Festival
(February, 18th - March, 2nd, 2020)

To participate in the festival visit Tadpole Tail Field and Lotus Song Garden in Ahnimar.
To reach the festival area faster, take the worldgates located in Marianople, Austera or Diamond Shores.
During the festival Ahnimar will remain a peaceful area.

Once you arrive, first of all, speak with the Festival Keeper Tarini. He’ll have a first festival task for you and will ask you to visit Father Dolbu in Lotus Song Garden.

Father Dolbu will offer you Daru Festival Coins and Great Mission Pack in exchange for your help caring for this year’s clutch of Daru Eggs.
Only once a day, he will give you a Daru Newt Hatchling that contains a recently hatched Daru Egg.
To keep it warm and moist, you’ll need to use a Daru Incubator nearby. Moist Daru Eggs can only be placed on an Astra-Blessed Lotus.

Take good care of the egg until it falls asleep! You may be requested to talk to the egg, feed fried chicken to the hungry egg, read a book or play with some dolls for the egg.

Sleeping Daru Eggs wake up in 1 hour and disappear if neglected for over 10 hours. Return it to Father Dolbu if it seems to be moving.

The eggs have a chance to hatch into 5 different types:
• Residency Daru Egg (2 Daru Festival Coins)
• Salesman Daru Egg (2 Daru Festival Coins)
• Captain Daru Egg (3 Daru Festival Coins)
• Trade Outlet Daru Egg (3 Daru Festival Coins)
• Astra-Blessed Daru Egg (5 Daru Festival Coins)

Festival Keeper Aliniri will ask you to deliver him 20 Iron Ingots. And Achoo will need you to tame a Maddened Skyfin. Garden Stone will let you reach the hill top faster.

Don’t miss the visit of our special festival guest – Ian. He comes only 4 times a day at 2 am, 12 pm, 4 pm and 10 pm.
You will find him not far from the Ahnimar Rainbow that appears over Lotus Song Garden.

Daru Streetlight
Would it be possible to increase the range at which the Daru Streetlight item stays visibly lit? If you have a 24x24, you can place the Daru Streetlight at one end of it, light it, walk to the other end of it, and the model will change back to the unlit model.

Most other lighting (for example Gweonid Treevine Streetlight or Nuian Streetlight) stays visibly lit until it's so far away that the model disappears from view entirely.

For it go to your Options and change the "Object Distance" setting from Low to High or Very High.

Unfortunately that also happens with everything on Very High, that's the first thing I checked.

It seems to me that the lit model gets incorrectly replaced with an unlit model at a very short distance for some reason (instead of being replaced with a lower polycount lit model). None of the other crafted lighting items I've seen so far, including some of the festival lights (such as the Goldfish Lantern or Crest Fish Lantern for example, I tested those) have this issue, you can see them correctly lit until they fade out from view.

Here's an example, the Gweonid Treevine Streetlight is quite a bit behind the Daru Streetlight, and it never changes into an unlit model, but the Daru Streetlight does. The distance between the left and right screenshots is around the length of a 24x24 plot.

I tested it in game yesterday and if you change settings to Very High, it will stay on for you when you move the other side of 24x24 or even a bit further. That are that lamp features and the best way to increase the distance.

Due to it being entirely RNG based on what types of egg you got, there was no mention of it in the event description or the related achievements, and that it wasn't even mailed out to lucky characters until after the event was already over, is there any chance you would consider adding the Strangely Beautiful title/title box to the Festival Exchanger for daru tokens, similar to what was done for the Pawsome and Rum Runners titles? Thank you.

That box was received by the players who were lucky to grow the specific egg and was a part of the achievement. All players that completed the achievement requirements during the event had the achievement completed at the end of the event. If you didn't receive the box and achievement "Astra-Blessed Newt" wasn't completed, that means your egg never hatched into Astra-Blessed Newt. Title can be received for the completed achievement only.

I understand why I got it on some toons and not on others, Im asking if you would consider ALSO adding it as an item that can be purchased for festival coins, for those who were not astra-blessed by RNG.

No, it will remain as an achievement reward.
