Happy New Year, Yokai Heroes!
Get Ready to /Party... Yokai Style
Yokai Isle blends many cultural elements from China, Japan, and other Asian countries to create one of the most popular zones in-game. So every year, we celebrate Yokai New Year in Akiba. This year is the Year of the Rat (and the colors green and blue) in the Yokai Calendar and Akiba’s new year celebration is getting disrupted by… SURPRISE!!!... an infestation of rodents.
Log in this weekend and help Empress Miko and Bronwin the Pied Piper drive these vermin OUT of Akiba! But be careful -- music may soothe the savage beast... or make it even ANGRIER!
/join akibacny and talk to Empress Miko to begin your adventure and get all the returning seasonal items!
This weekend's boss monster has a chance to drop:
- Ratnegade armor set
- Cheese daggers and Rat Bomb
- Ratnegade katana series
- Chibi Shu and Chibifar0 pets
- Yokai Peek-a Helms
- Shu Basket of Surprises cape
- Kawaii Yokai Hair helms
- Lán sè Sh Ninja armor set (member only)
- Lǜsè Shu armor set (available for all players)
- Foo Dog pets
- Parade weapons and accessories
- and more!
In AQW it has become tradition that we sell a Non-Member AC pet to go with the theme of the Yokai New year. This year it's the Darkon's Debris 2020 Pet... but you don't need to buy it. ANY player can /join garden and find it in his merge shop.
