Happy Anniversary to Nexon’s fantasy MMO Mabinogi. The game is turning thirteen and, in order to celebrate, Nexon has kicked off a celebration event featuring balloons, mini-games, and challenges. It’s not a party without balloons, although the balloons are part of the mini-games so it’s all kind of a win-win.
To participate in this event — players need to head to Festia and meet up with the appropriately named Thirteen and register a character with them. Once registered, players will be able to earn rewards for logins. This includes special coins used in Thirteen’s shop and for entry to mini-games.
Speaking of mini-games, there are four:
- Pop the Balloon: Upon arrival at Festia, players can visit Patriot’s limited-time booth and try to break the highest balloon-popping record. Players will receive Anniversary Coins and Festia Instant Prize Tickets for participating.
- Mysterious Balloons: Balune the Balloon Artist needs players’ help! Milletians will need to work with him to gather materials for more balloons and receive Instant Revive Balloons.
- Clobbermeister: Players can speak to the Clobbermeister Staff in Festia to join the mini-game and show their power. Participants are given 20 seconds to deal as much damage as possible to select punching bags. After the time elapses, players will be rewarded with a Festia Commemorative Gift Box and 13th Anniversary Gift Box.
- Cave of Trials: Milletians will meet with Duro the Trialkeeper and enter the Cave of Trials! Players will be challenged to defeat the monsters that lurk in each cave to advance to the next trial, but beware of the new mysterious boss that will be revealed at the final trial.
Oh! There’s also Cotton Candy, a handy item that offers a random XP buff or AP. Players will need to visit the Dessert Merchant for that.
