NEStalgia Easter 2012 Event

Our first holiday event of the year kicks off this Thursday, April 5th and will last through early Monday. This weekend’s Easter event is an upgraded version of what we ran last year and comes packed with a harder world boss and some cool new prizes.

Head to Ardan to pickup two new daily quests, and prepare to encounter Choco Bunnies all over the world who drop special rewards if you manage to defeat them before they run away. Your maxed out characters will face a greater challenge this year as you do battle with the dreaded “Ether Bunny” who roams the overworld. Beat the Ether Bunny and you’ll have a chance to loot a coveted Bunny Rod.

There will be plenty of Easter themed dyes to be won this weekend, and new prizes include a female-only Bunny Ears Mask and a very special item meant for use post-v1.63: the Choco Bunny Egg. Players can use this egg in v1.63 to hatch their own Choco Bunny companion, which is only obtainable during this weekend’s event.

Other News

I’ll be announcing the official release date for v1.63 next week. I’m very excited to get this patch out the door; it’s easily the best major update that NEStalgia has ever received. It’s been a long time since I’ve become so absorbed when testing a NEStalgia update that I found myself actually playing the game and enjoying it. All of this stuff may have taken a long time to develop, but I’m confident that the end result is worth the wait.

For many of you, the best news about the release of v1.63 is that regular content expansions are going to be our sole focus from here on out. That means new areas to explore, new quests, new gear and the oft-requested level cap bumps. It may take us some time to get that first big expansion up and running, but we’ll keep you updated as we go.

I hope that all of you enjoy this weekend’s holiday event – I’ll be back next week with the v1.63 release date announcement and more.

    I actually completely forgot that there might be an Easter event until I saw this post.

    I’m definitely looking forward to it though, along with the eventual 1.63 update.

    Are the dyes for this event going to be the same ones from last Easter, or are they going to be new?

    Either way, release date, yay.

    So glad the companions are pretty much almost out of the way. Looking forward to that pink lighthouse thingy and the tree! ๐Ÿ˜€ (or whatever you have in store for us in the next expansions).

    Also, does this mean we might have a Halloween and Christmas event this year? I know my sprites and music won’t be for naught, but it would be cool to see them in events this year!!!! ๐Ÿ˜€ (Then again, IDK if you wish to use them for events or not… lol)

      We’re going to try and host an event for every major holiday this year.

    I would also like to know if the dyes are the same as last years and if that Choco Bunny egg is going to be sell able to other players?

      The dyes are the same as last year, although the two guild dyes that were only distributed to a few players last year are now available as prizes. All of the special items are tradable and can be sold on the marketplace.

    It’s great to have an event to break up some tedium, ad maybe some lurking players may come back for a little bit.
