It...feels so underwhelming for such a hyped event. Anyone else?

    It has its uses though.

    I'm in the middle of training the Tailor talent, and these daily skill seals and ability to get 2x potions from boxes is a HUGE help.

    I think it's useful if you're training things, but I myself am not so I didn't bother with it. I think the Homestead props are cute though.

    I loved this event back when I was training the skills the seals could be used on.

    I kinda wish I could still make use of them to make advanceable skills eligible for testing.

    I should think that anyone who can make use of the skill training seals this event awards will like this event.
    I'm glad that they reduced the required number of players for the nightly lantern release.

    My main got the gesture last time, so I'm doing the event on an alt who doesn't have most skills maxed. Works for me lol.

    Because this event is only useful for those who didn't rank all skills yet. I have a few leftover skills but since the seals expire I don't think I can gather enough AP on time to be able to actually use the seals. I only got garbages from the boxes so far. So ultimately, this event pretty much useless for me.

    Wow, maybe i'm lucky after all?

    Yesterday, after about 15 hours farming of this event i got:
    • Matsuri Yukata (M)
    • Homestead Sweet Treats
    • Homestead Sky Lantern (Sphere)
    • Ton of Leathers/Silks/Straps (probably most annoying reward)
    • Some of various Wound/HP/Prot potions
    • Some Name/Chat Color Potions
    • Some Tendering Potions
    • Some Training Potions

    Also have Matsuri Geta Sandals (M) which i got them at Friday. I always seem to get male items... >_>

    Check spoilers if you want to see how HS items look (the ones i got so far).

    Realized it's large too! (By the way, my character is 18 years old)

    That's all for now. Probably Sweet Treats is the cutest here. At least for me.

    the lantern action is not a gesture, it is under the action tab. but yeah it is not really worth doing it twice. oh well at least the extra lanterns can be saved to get those annoying prize boxes.

    It's 1x1, which is nice. Doesn't take a lot of space~ :)

    I played the previous Lantern Event, I was extremely hyped for its return, got sad for it being postponed, returned happy when it returned after last maitenance. I'm still in hype

    So far I got:
    - Homestead Matsuri Stand
    Random naked friend in there to show you can stay inside the prop!
    3BPYIY8.png
    - 2 Sky Lantern Revive Ballons (square)
    - Matsuri Geta Sandals (2 female, 1 male)
    - Matsuri Yukata (M)

    I hope to get more HS props as they're my primary interest, but I'm making good use of the 4 daily seals I get!

    Cute Bonus:

    oh yes that's VERY nice :D definitely better than those tiny homestead stars that somehow take 3 x 3 space lol. I hope I get some of the sweets now
