Fireflies were only able to be turned in when the player had enough to obtain the next prize in the list.
The total amount of fireflies needed to earn all of the prizes was 5,500 fireflies.
|Prize||Individual Cost||Cumulative Cost|
If a player turned in more fireflies than required to obtain their next prize the remaining fireflies was accumulated in the firefly storage meter for the next prize. The firefly storage meter would not reset to zero.
What is the Firefly Festival?
The Firefly Festival's objective was to power up the Gloaming Gate.
The Firefly Festival helped build on the Firefly Festival Island where the Gloaming Gate, Dawnbreak Edifice, Dawn Pedestal, Unhatched Dawn Dragon, Duskfall Edifice, Dusk Pedestal, Unhatched Dusk Dragon, Celestial Habitat, and the Twilight Tower were located which enabled players to obtain them as exclusive rewards for their efforts.
The "Info" section of Prizes section in the Firefly Festival Help Menu provided a display of the info box for their respective prizes which were viewed by clicking the prize after obtaining it.
The Firefly Festival started with a tutorial explaining how the Firefly Festival will work.
The process of this tutorial is able to be viewed in the gallery to the right.
The tutorial took a few minutes to complete from beginning to end, but players received 250 as a goal completion reward after completing the tutorial.
When enough fireflies were collected they were able to be traded in for prizes. Upon receiving a prize a message card popped-up.
This is the process in which the prize completion occurred.
