Year of the Dragon

29 January 2024

Greetings, Adventurers!

Before corruption plagued the ancient structures, citizens of Ebonscale Reach offered tributes for good fortune and blessings. Awaken the ancient dragon spirit once again on February 7 through 20, but watch out. The Corrupted Maiden lurks in the shadows, waiting to snatch blessings from unsuspecting Adventurers. Join Longtable Banquets, Tribute Offerings, and Firework Ceremonies for event-specific rewards like Fortune’s Gift Sacks. How will you celebrate the Year of the Dragon?

Longtable Banquet

The Longtable Banquet features a variety of festive cuisine for tribute. First, gather Red Meat from the set of banquet tables in Ebonscale Reach. Next, take your ingredients to the hotpot. Finally, fire up a wok full of boiling red broth and meat to craft a Spicy Hotpot item. Don’t forget to also taste the other culinary delicacies!
