Exclusive CurrencyThe Hand Fan is the game’s premium currency for this event. These are gained by completing Duo Training tasks, participating in the Fishing Contest, winning them from the Lucky Hunt, or buying them from the Event Market. (1 credit = 2 Hand Fans) Unused Hand Fans will be automatically converted to cash at the end of the event.
Bright Youth OutfitA new attractive costume is now available for purchase during this event. The set costs 1520 credits and comes with its own exclusive action. You can buy the headpiece and clothes individually for 540 and 980 credits respectively.
Fishing ContestThis contest is available every 12:00-14:00 and 18:00-20:00 daily, during the event duration. There are three Fish ponds available, each catering on the participant’s Fishingmastery level and access to rods. The higher the difficulty, the better Fishing Rod is needed (Fiberglass Fishing Rod is the best rod prior to the update). Higher difficulties also mean better rewards.
Participating in the contest will still give you rewards, as long as you’ve met or exceeded the minimum score. In this case, I was still able to earn 3000 dollars and 20 Hand Fans for scoring more than 300. We’re cannot confirm yet if the minimum score and participation rewards will differ for other difficulties.
Your score will be counted based on the number and rarity of the Fish you’ve caught. The top 10 players will receive additional rank rewards daily in the form of gold bars and skill points. For Hard difficulty ranked players, Top 1-5 will get their limited-time titles. Different Rank Rewards are given to participants on each difficulty.
How to participate in the contest
- To participate, you have to talk to Aleksia to start the challenge. The challenge lasts 8 minutes.
- Find one of the many Fishing spots (look for the icon on the minimap or the swirling school of Fish in the water.
- Equip your Fishing rod and bait. Cast your line to the fishing spot.
- Wait for a bite, then reel in as you normally would when Fishing.
Additional notes about this contest:
- You can’t take home the Fish you’ve caught in the contest. However, you’ll still earn Fishingmastery.
- This contest is a combination of luck and skill. Your chance of hooking a King Fish (see below) is random, and catching it will take skill of course.
- You can challenge the same Fish pond to aim for a higher score but the rewards can only be obtained once.
- Make sure to bring your rod and baits before participating. The type of bait you’re using matters.
- Baits that you crafted on the event area is considered infected and will be destroyed as soon as you leave the instance.
- You can auto-Fish in the contest but it’s not recommended since your chance of catching any fish is lower compared to manual Fishing.
- The King Fish (Big Cuttlefish) will be a bit tricky to catch since the “sweet spot” of your Fishing gauge will be moving, not to mention that the green spot is smaller. Try your best in focusing on catching this since it’s worth 100 points.

Fireworks BlessingDuring the event period, survivors with Manor LV3 and above can collect Fireworks materials randomly by gathering resources in different maps, defeating enemies, or fishing. You can collect a maximum of 20 fireworks materials per day.
You can then surrender the Fireworks materials to the indicated NPCs in your camp, Hope 101, or Santophany. For every 10 fireworks materials you submit, you’ll get 1000 new dollars and 500 skill points. You can submit up to two times a day, earning you 2000 new dollars and 1000 skill points.
The materials submitted to the NPCs are collective per location. So for example, it doesn’t matter if private camp members submit their Fireworks materials to Armight, Liza, Julie, etc. The total amount of materials will still be counted as a whole. Once enough materials (200 materials total) have been collected, free fireworks shows will be held in their respective locations. There will be 9 free shows daily. Take a selfie during these free fireworks shows to get a 1000 dollars and 500 skill points bonus reward!
Lucky HuntEvery player gets a free draw daily and 100 New Dollars for a chance to get a random rewards in displayed prize pool. For the succeeding draws, you need to exchange 120 Hands for 100 New Dollars. Always get the free daily draw since it’s still a chance to get something. You can also consider saving your Hand Fans and do the Draw x5 from the current prize pool since it's more bang for the buck.
Players have a free refresh daily to shuffle the available prizes in the prize pool. Further refresh attempts will cost 100 Hand Fans. You’ll get a bonus reward after 10, 40, 80, 150, and 300 draws.
The available rewards will also depend on the player’s gathering level. To know what items are available for your level, tap on the Reward Preview button on the top right of the screen.
