Game Description
The last Firefly Festival was held uncounted centuries ago. Since then the Gloaming Gate has sat unused. Luckily, the artisan wizard Teekal was up to the challenge of renovating it in time for the arrival of the fireflies. Pleased by the result, he was set upon by a palpable sense of serenity as he gazed upon his completed work.

Update Note: The 'Reward Amount' is determined by the amount of fireflies accumulated during the event.

The Gloaming Gate was a structure which played an important part of the Firefly Festival.

During the event, fireflies were collected by doing normal park activities, then "turned in" to the Gloaming Gate for prizes based on the number of fireflies collected since the last prize was awarded. The Gloaming Gate's infobox has a reset timer that indicates when more fireflies are able to be collected by players.

The Gloaming Gate consists of eight panels, which can be restored by collecting a certain amount of fireflies. When each section is completed, the respective prize for that panel is awarded. Panels and sections are restored in a fixed order, and so each prize must be obtained before fireflies could be contributed to obtaining the next.

Upon selecting the Gloaming Gate, the options for "Help", "Turn In Fireflies", "Buy", and "Info" were displayed.

"Help" opened up two tabs which provide information on the Firefly Festival rules and prizes.

"Rules" offered short descriptions of each of the aspects of the Firefly Festival. Information on each of the prizes is accessed through the "Prize" tab.

The option to "Turn In Fireflies" is only activated when a player has collected enough fireflies for the next reward. Besides that, an animation would occur on that specific reward when there are enough fireflies to be traded in to receive it.


The prizes awarded through the Gloaming Gate, and the fireflies needed to unlock them, were as follows: and the amount of fireflies needed to unlock them, were as follows:

Dusk Dragon Firefly 1,100 Firefly 3,025
Celestial Habitat Firefly 825 Firefly 3,850
Twilight Tower Firefly 1,650 Firefly 5,500

Upon obtaining the Twilight Tower, a player was given a restored replica of the Gloaming Gate as a movable decoration in the form of the Gloaming Stone.

After the Firefly Festival ended, any players who did not already have the Gloaming Stone recieved one. This is similar to how the Tines of the Scar was given as the Rift Monument at the end of the Light Magic Event and Dark Magic Event.
