Log in for LOVE this weekend!

Our 2022 Heroes Heart Day Event is HERE

In the real world, Valentine’s Day is a holiday full of emotion -- most people either love the hearts, the pink decorations, and the cheerful cheesy romance... or they love to rebel against the idea of it all.  This weekend, log in and get ready to slay your way through (friend)zones full of unloved undead, disgrunted draconians, and long-lost loves as we bring back all our seasonal Hero's Heart Day events.

(Happy endings not guaranteed... but at least you can get some sweet loot out of the deal.)

Heroes Heart Day 2022: Tournament of Love

Log in for our newest Heroes Heart Day event: Big Mama’s 💖Tournament of Love💖! This weekend, you'll be transported to farm from your home on Lore to a mysterious new realm where LOVE rules. But on this adventure, YOU aren't the only Hero on the quest... winning a date with you is also the quest REWARD for Sepulchure, Gravelyn, and Vampire Queen Safiria!* 

Now that her most honored guest / Grand Prize is here (that's you!), the final round of Big Mama's tournament can begin! /join arcadia to start your adventure!

* Oooooh yeah, this event's outside the normal canonical time. But the interactions between Gravelyn and Sepulchure make up for ANY oddities.  

Sweet New Event Rewards

Getting the sweet new Valentine’s Day gear will be as easy as falling in love! Find all-new and returning Valentine's themed gear when you talk to NPCs in the /love and other holiday event maps.  Plus, talk to Big Daddy in this /arcadia after you finish the story event to find the merge shop full of even MORE holiday gear.

More Seasonal Yokai New Year Gear returns

The Yokai calendar is cyclical, and repeats every 12 years. But having to wait TWELVE YEARS for seasonal gear to return is a bit much to ask. So this week, Yoshino hunted down all of the seasonal Yokai New Year gear that hasn't been available, and we've loaded up the shops for you.
