The Explorer’s Celebration is a bonus event unlocked at 100% of the Bounties of Blackwood meter! Players can unlock this event after the completion of Bounties of Blackwood by killing Overworld Bosses in the Blackwood zone until October 12th!
A new meter has been added to the event’s page and for every 25% of progress, the Explorer’s Celebration event will run for two days after. So that means that the event will run for eight days at 100% of the new meter!

The perfect event to level up a new character since the experience bonus stacks with experience scrolls and potions! The Explorer’s Celebration extra Event will run from Tuesday, October 12th until Wednesday, October 20th.

To participate in the event, all you have to do is get the Event Quest: Bounties of Blackwood, from the Crown Store for free or visit the Impresario Tent. Talk to Chanil-Jei to begin the introductory Quest for the event.
You can go ahead and start earning event rewards before you complete the introductory quest though.

Additionally the first time you complete a Blackwood Daily Quest every day, you earn a Glorious Blackwood Legates’ Coffer and two(2) Event Tickets! You can earn more regular Blackwood Legates’ Coffers by completing more Daily Quests after your first every day or as a drop from Bosses, Oblivion Portals, resource nodes, chests and even normal enemies.
