More Adventures in the Djinn Realm

Being a Djinn Guardian, you come across a LOT of mystical chests. Last year, Crulon found one locked with three magical seals. Decipher his riddles, locate the monsters, and fight to get the seals you need.

Talk to him in /djinn to begin his quests. Complete his Seal of Approval quest and to collect the pieces of the Serpent Knight gear. Find his Sandsea Enchanter set in his birthday shop or the Featured Gear shop in your game menu.

Meet Hikari the ShadowHunter

This weekend, /join banished and explore until you encounter a mysterious new NPC... Hikari! In the real world, Hikari is one of our contract artists, regularly contributing reward items, monster art, and more for our weekly releases. And this weekend, to celebrate his birthday, he's crafted a host of gear for you to hunt for! 

Great ready to...

EXTENDED: Holiday AdventureCoin Bonus is still available!

Good news! We know a lot of people were asking for the Holiday AdventureCoin bonus to be extended after the holidays... and we agree! We don't want anyone to miss out, so for a limited time, get 50% more ACs with any Membership or AC pack. 

Wait...AdventureCoin Bonus?!

That's right! Several times each year, we have bonus AdventureCoin offers (example: Summer, Back to School, and during the holidays). Bonus amounts and dates may change from year to year, so keep an eye on the Design Notes and social media for more news of future bonuses.

Get 60,000 ACs while our Holiday Bonus is on!

For the first time in years, we are adding a new 40,000 AdventureCoin package! Get 40,000 ACs for $99.95 and unlock your choice of upgrade bonus pack, 15x Rep, Gold, Class Points, and XP server boosts, and the new Mythic Item of Digital Awesomeness (IoDA). But while our 50% holiday bonus is on... get 60,000 ACs for $99.95!

Mythic Item of Digital Awesomeness?!

The Mythic Item of Digital Awesomeness (or MIoDA for short) is a miscellaneous item you will get by purchasing the 40k AdventureCoin pakage. Like the other IoDA items, it allows you to choose any item in the game when you redeem it through your Account Manager.

And in the spirit of the holiday season... we will award an MIoDA for every $100 USD spent on AC and membership packages* between November 18th, 2020 and 6 PM EST on December 4th, 2020.
