Bamarama on the other hand changed time start time from 9pm to an earlier 7pm schedule.
Diamond Battles and Diamond tickets have been added.

For more info on Bamarama changes please read: Tera Online: Festival Achievements - Rootstock - Bamarama and Quests!!!
*this event guide was first created for Febuary 13 to March 19 2014 Rootstock Event! This event is done yearly.


Once you login, you will receive 2 new quests. One is a quest for Pond Faire.

Head over to Velika at the public square past the Collegium Arcane and look for Shurimon (the festival guide).

Other Festival Guides can also be found in the cities of  Kaiator, and Allemantheia.

QHP Note: Alternatively, you can go straight to Tuwangi Mire via Lumbertown Teleport Master for the Pond Faire, and Freeholds via Chebika Teleport Master for Rootstock.

  • To hunt for the Moonsilk Carpet Mount head over to Rootstock (Fallowfest Fairground) - for level 29 up. To go to Rootstock pages click here >> For Rootstock Cooking and For Bamarama!

  • To hunt for the Horned Toad Pets head over to Pond Faire (Tuwangi Garrison) - for level 20 up.

QHP Note: Each event is composed of multiple chain quests, and could be a bit redundant but if you really want the rewards then it's all in a days' play right? lol!

Pond Faire

Find Krumu to finish [Pond Faire] Pond Life quest and start the chain of Pond Faire quests.

Krumu is also a Pond Faire Merchant and sells Teleport scrolls for the area.

QHP Note: Pond Faire quests are a breeze to finish but are not really needed to gain the achievements. You can actually skip the quests and go play the [Mini-game] Drum Away since both need only the Colorful Frogspawns to complete. But if you don't play through the quests you miss the chance to get daily quests, including the [Pond Faire - Daily] And the Beat Goes On which gives Tuwangi Reedflute.

  Pond Faire Quests and Rewards

Quest: [Pond Faire] Prepare for the Faire - Help Haroso find a frightened tuwangi and give it courage to join the Pond Faire.

Search for Good Hiding Spots around the event area. Once a message on screen appears saying that "You found a likely hiding spot", use Haroso's Drum. The tuwangi will then appear.

Return to Haroso, then go hunting for Bubu Dragons. Then use Fire-proof skewers to make Dragon on a stick at the Burning Frog Altar.

Quest: [Pond Faire] Lilies and Drums - Gather Pond Lilies for Vedobo.

QHP Note: Hunting for Bubu Dragons and [Pond Faire] Lilies and Drums quest can also be done with a party mate. Party members also register each Bubu Dragon killed. For Pond Lilies, gather lilies at the same time for it to be registered.

Pond Faire Daily Quest

Daily Quests are received after completing the main quests of Pond Faire. Can only be done once a day. You need to wait for the next day to be able to play and receive rewards again.
