Other Festival Guides can also be found in the cities of Kaiator (Kurrn at High Street) and Allemantheia (Nomarun at the Arcane Symposium) .

Choose Festival of the Sun (Tree of Wisdom) to be teleported to Balder's Refuge, Tree of Wisdom!

QHP Note: If you've been there before, you can also fly to Bastion then use Teleport Master service to Stronghold Camp. You can also press "H" and choose "60-65 Solo Sarberry Deliciousness for Summer" from the Vanguard Requests and click Teleport.



:◎ Festival of the Sun (Squalid Temple) ◎:


Search for Renmi at the Tree of Wisdom and talk to him to complete "[Event] Holy Responsibilities". Talk to him again to continue to the next quest, "[Event] Attending Services".

click image to enlarge

Renmi will then ask you to help clean the Temple of the Sun and will tell you to use the teleportal to enter the temple and report to Davor.

click image to enlarge

QHP Note: This quest is a solo instance only.


Once inside talk to Davor and he will ask you to take care of the sloths in the area using the PEST-B-GON 8000.
click image to enlarge

Activate the controller and PEST-B-GON 8000 will begin its task.
click image to enlarge

PEST-B-GON 8000 will randomly use its attacks to eliminate the sloths.

QHP Note: Don't attack the sloths before activating the controller or else the sloths will mob you to death. If you accidentally die in this instance but activated the controller, there would be times when the PEST-B-GON 8000 will continue to eliminate all the sloths and the boss even without you. When you get back, the Temple Cellar will be cleared of sloths. Breaking crystals upon death can still occur in this dungeon.

click image to enlarge

Eliminate the Boss Zakoon.
click image to enlarge

After defeating Zakoon and the sloths, climb the stairs to the Temple Garden and talk to Nahad.

You will reach the Temple Garden full of tiny Ghilliedhus and one Massive Ghilliedhu in the center of the pond. Nahad will be standing near a Broken Garden Golem.
click image to enlarge

Talk to him and he will ask you to defeat the Massive Ghilliedhu and repair the broken garden golems to stop (prune) the rampaging tiny ghilliedhus. 
click image to enlarge

QHP Note: You must defeat the massive ghilliedhu before you can get past the line of ghilliedhus blocking the way. The little ghilliedhus running about are invulnerable! They can also knock you down. Try to avoid them as much as you can and concentrate all your attacks on the Massive Ghilliedhu.

click image to enlarge

Once you eliminate the massive ghilliedhu all the little ones disappear and you are free to move forward.

You will then find Nahad under attack! Help defeat the Vampir Lady and Zompori.
click image to enlarge

Talk to Nahad again and he will explain why the Vampirs are acting hostile towards him and he will tell you to go meet Kodar.

Go up the stairs to find Kodar inside the Temple Center.
click image to enlarge

He will ask you to talk to Karu about ridding the Temple Center of snakes.
click image to enlarge

Karu's quest is to play Whack-a-Snake Mini-Game! Kill off as much snake as you can.

QHP Note: More info on the mini-game section below.

After playing this mini-game exit the temple through the Dimensional Mirror.
click image to enlarge

Return to Renmi for the rewards. You'll get your first Toy Sun Tank!
click image to enlarge

Daily Quests for the Squalid Temple will now be unlocked.

QHP Note: You can either go on with the Event Quests or Renmi 's Daily Quests. More info about Daily Quests below.



:◎ Carnival Carnivores (Banquet of Blood) ◎:


To continue with the Event Quest, talk to Renmi he will tell you about Vampirs and how they want to interfere with the temple's annual cleaning. He will then ask you to go talk to Harun.
click image to enlarge

Talk to Harun, he wants you to interfere with the Vampir's Banquet of Blood. Enter the Banquet of Blood through the teleportal beside him.
click image to enlarge

QHP Note: This quest is a solo instance only. You won't be able to use your regular skills but you keep all buffs you gained before entering the instance.

Harun will bestow a set of skills needed to eliminate the vampirs.
click image to enlarge

QHP Note: You can set your recovery items into the skills bar.

Destroy the door using spells to enter the Banquet Hall.
click image to enlarge

In front of you is the Banquet Hall full of Vampirs! Check  map below for your target locations.
click image to enlarge

From the door, to your right is the Vampir Coffin guarded by invulnerable Ghosts. Close it to make the ghosts disappear.
click image to enlarge

QHP Note: Ghosts can't be harmed by any spell! Try to distract those ghosts by using Mutate spell to transform one of those Vampirs into a Boar. Ghost will then follow the Boar around. Another alternative way is to quickly avoid the ghosts and try to close the coffin before the ghosts hit you and cancel the action. Using Mutate spell 10 times will unlock "Stop Hogging the Kills" Achievement. Check Achievements list below.


QHP Note: Boars cannot be controlled. They will freely run around the room and knock down anything in their way.. including you. They are not invincible and will disappear once their HP bars get depleated. They are great decoys for you but once they disappear all the mobs they gathered will shift their aggression towards you.

After closing the coffin you are asked to put poison in the Blood Feast located at the mid-center of the Banquet Hall.
click image to enlarge

QHP Note: Zomporis around the table will not attack you and you cannot attack them. After eating the poisoned feast they will turn into frogs that will follow any boar you have created...  if you didn't create boars they will follow you instead.

After placing the poison, the Feast will turn purple and you will then be asked to destroy the Altar in the Ceremonial Room.

QHP Note: It would be good to clear the room of Vampirs first to avoid getting mobbed inside the Ceremonial Room. Alternatively, you can use your AOE skills fear, stun, quake and light.

Clear the path to the ceremonial room and destroy the Altar.
click image to enlarge

The altar can only be destroyed using Punish spell. Once you begin to attack the altar the Blood Priest will start to attack you and dolls will be summoned to protect the altar and interfere with your task. The Blood Priest is impervious so trying to kill him is futile.

QHP Note: AOE spells help alot for crowd control! But we would suggest you continue to destroy the altar quickly so the dolls and the priest would stop attacking and disappear.

Destroy the altar and exit the Banquet through the teleportal.
click image to enlarge

Return to Harun to complete this quest. You'll recieve Care and Use of Miss Katonic.
