July in Aetolia!

Hi folks!

July is here and we're now officially halfway through 2022! I'll be putting a 'mid year review' post together in a few days to take stock of where we are, what we've achieved so far, and what's left to come for the rest of the year. Before I get into the promotional details, we will be holding a Great Hunt over the weekend of July 16th/17th, and every Wednesday throughout July you can also enjoy faster denizen respawns!

For July we are welcoming back giftbags as well as a lesson sale! Lessons can be obtained directly from the website at a much lower cost, and the details for the giftbags are as follows:

Every 25 credits purchased from the website ( rewards a giftbag! The first 100 credits purchased comes with an extra bag for every 10 credits. This means that your first 100 credit purchase awards 14 bags right away! In addition to that, every 500 credit threshold you reach will award an additional 5 giftbags! That means if you buy 500 credits, you'll receive 35 giftbags, and every 500 credits after that will award 25 bags instead of the standard 20!

As always, I've made some tweaks to the prize values and odds to ensure the best value when purchasing. Onto the details of the bags!


Single bags can be exchanged for either a red, orange, yellow, green, blue, or violet bag. Almost everything in the coloured bags can also be found in the standard bag, but at a lower rate. Coloured bags contain many of the same prizes as standard bags but allow you to more easily target a specific item.

Five unopened bags can be exchanged for either a gold giftbag or a monochrome giftbag. Gold giftbags have a higher minimum value than five separate bags added up. Monochrome bags have the same prizes as a standard giftbag, but when opened, up to ten people in the room with you also get prizes as if they had opened one too!

Regular & Monochrome Giftbag

Chocolates, Divine oils, elemental globes, customisation certificates, chalices, discount vouchers, Iron Coins, minipets, ilmenite puzzle boxes, voxes, compendium pages, style scrolls, consumables, relic coffers*, steed whistles, and a chance at various artifacts in the 50-2000 credit range.

Note: All of the minipets and compendium pages in this bag are drawn from the individual ones in the coloured bags.

Red Giftbag
Minipet: a pink-skinned axolotl, Page: Masilia Town, Vox: Loud, Chocolate: Strawberry. This bag has a much higher chance at giftbag consumables.

Orange Giftbag
Minipet: a brown stick insect, Page: Forgotten Dome, Vox: Blaring, Chocolate: Fudge. Standard misc artifacts swapped out for crafting and trade artifacts.

Yellow Giftbag
Minipet: a vulture nestling, Page: Illdon, Vox: Sibilant, Chocolate: Cherry. This bag has a much higher chance to award elemental globes.

Green Giftbag
Minipet: an armored viper, Page: Feral Caves, Vox: Penetrative, Chocolate: Mint. This bag has a much higher chance to award silver chalices.

Blue Giftbag
Minipet: a walking hand, Page: Rimewatch, Vox: Amplifying, Chocolate: White. This bag has a much higher chance at relic coffers.

Violet Giftbag
Minipet: a shadow-touched butterfly, Page: Den of Shadows, Vox: Simplistic, Chocolate: Hazelnut. This bag has a much higher chance at Divine oils.

Gold Giftbag
Minipets, voxes, and compendium pages are removed. Single chocolates are now bags of 3. Divine phylacteries and gold translocator pieces added. Higher chance at relic coffers and a very low chance at salvage.

All giftbags always award either a city experience buff or an iron coin alongside other prizes. For gold bags, this is a tether-wide or global buff!

* Relics in the coffers this month are: starchart, ilmenitebracer, membranous, spire, lifesense, hunters_book, everfull. These coffers will have 1 or 2 pieces to be commensurate with giftbag values!

There is also now a global prize that's triggered after every 500th giftbag opened, where one of the next 50 after that will give a bonus 500 credits!

Giftbag city experience buffs no longer show a global message each time it gets applied. The global message will now only show up if one of the affected cities
didn't already have the experience buff, otherwise it will just refresh the timer silently. You can still take advantage of the anonymous option ( OPEN GIFTBAG ANONYMOUS ) to hide your name from the exp buff announcement.
