Once a month from the 1st through the 7th a different city will host a week long event called a city festival. During these festivals players can trade City Tokens in for house items and other rewards from merchants. City tokens can be acquired before the events by doing city writs or during the event by completing repeatable quests. Each host city has its own postage collection quest available from purple ? nodes found within the city and nearby regions.

The city festivals have been on all live servers since 2009, but made their first appearance on the TLE servers in April of 2016.

Repeatable Quests[]

  • Far Seas Requisition: Special Delivery
  • Far Seas Requisition: Special Order Crafting - this crafting quest can be a great way for new characters to quickly and easily gain tradeskill experience (XP), no matter which tradeskill they intend to take up; this is because turning in quests typically grants more XP than randomly "grinding". Even higher level tradeskill characters can benefit if they have already used up all of their vitality (a limited pool that grants faster XP gain) and they do not want to use up normal materials to complete tradeskill writs and rush orders. See the quest for tips on crafting on-location easily and quickly. This quest uses T1 resources.
  • Far Seas Requisition: Special Order Gathering

Aether Racing[]

Each city festival also hosts Aether Racing for the entertainment of spectators and participants alike. If you complete the race track in a fast time you will also get a unique title. There are six possible titles to earn. More information can be found on the City Festival Aether Racing page.
