Season+ Graduation questline has arrived with the update on October 14, 2021 (Thu). You’ll now be able to complete the Graduation questline and move towards new horizons! We hope you had an enjoyable journey through the Season+ servers! 

 

In this GM Note, we’ll be presenting the new content that were not available during our previous seasons. Adventurers, the long-awaited Season+ graduation is at hand! Let’s go through the how-tos of graduation and the new content coming in!

 

1. What is Graduation?

If you are an Adventurer who played the Season servers for the first time, this is for you!

Why Should I Graduate?

 

“I really like the season server. Do I have to Graduate?” 

Graduation isn’t mandatory! So, you can choose to enjoy the season content until the season ends. 

However, season characters are limited to the season-exclusive gear “Tuvala gear.” This means you may have a harder time trying to do harder content. After graduating, you will be able to equip gear purchased from the Central Market. This will enable you to progress much further than that what is possible on the season servers. 

Additionally, season characters can get awesome rewards from the NPC Fughar for graduating. These rewards are extremely helpful in moving forward with your adventures!

When is a good time to graduate? 

Here is [GM] Ferdi recommendations on when to graduate. ◕ܫ◕ 

- Get PEN (V) Tuvala Helmet, Armor, Gloves, Shoes, main weapons, sub-weapons, and awakening so that you can start the “guaranteed PEN (V) boss gear” content right away!

- Reach Lv. 61 on your season character to get the Challenge rewards! 

Lv. 60 season character reward: PEN (V) Tuvala Ring 

Lv. 61 season character reward: PEN (V) Tuvala Earring

 


2. Graduation Requirements & How-tos

Did you decide that you want to graduate from Season+? Then you will need to meet the following requirements.

Season+ Graduation Requirements (Must Fulfill All) 

 

①Must not have “Fughar's Timepiece,” which you can obtain by completing the [Season] Fughar's Special Timepiece quest from the NPC Fughar.

Tip! Fughar’s Timepiece is an incredibly special item that can only be obtained in the season. Although you can throw it away to graduate, we recommend using it first! 

▶ Check out the [Season Character Transfer System] for details. 

② Must have completed and claimed all of the rewards for the Season Pass. 

- [Did not purchase the Black Spirit’s Pass] Must complete and claim all the rewards for the Season Pass Challenges.

- [Purchased the Black Spirit Pass] Must complete and claim all the rewards for both the Season and Black Spirit Pass Challenges.

Tip! If you have an unused [Event] Black Spirit’s Pass, you won’t be able to use it after you graduate!

So, make sure to use it beforehand!

 

If you meet all the requirements for graduation, then following the steps below to start your graduation!

Is this for new characters? If not, will those goals auto complete for an account with veteran characters?

@Eiro It Auto-completes in some sections (where quests are involved). In some sections, click on the task and it may complete based on previous characters' activities. In some cases, you actually have to DO the quest/task on an open world character after
opening the Pass..
