Hungry Ghost Festival Event (ended)

Post by Leirosa » Thu Jul 24, 2014 11:54 pm

I used this guide as a reference while writing this guide. However, I have extended it far beyond a simple translation. Any errors in the explanation of the story itself are mine.

(Hungry Ghost Festival Information: Wikipedia)


Quest Starter: 穆大爺 (Eversun City, x119 y261)

1. Speak with 穆大爺 (Eversun City, x119 y261). The story is that his mother unexpectedly passed on before he had a chance to see her for the last time, but he still wants to see her somehow, so he has you speak to a Taoist in Eversun North who is rumored to be able to help him travel to the netherworld to see her.

2. Travel to Eversun North. Speak with 雲仙道長 (Eversun North, x554 y469), who will agree to help since 穆大爺 is such a kind and filial son. He gives you a talisman that can be used to allow the spirit to temporarily enter hell.

3. Return to 穆大爺 (Eversun City, x119 y261). Talk to him twice. He is able to use the talisman to let his spirit enter hell to see his mother, but because she committed many wrongs during her life, he can only see her from afar suffering at the hands of evil spirits. He exhorts you to help save his mother from this fate, so he sends you back to 雲仙道長.

4. Return to 雲山道長 (Eversun North, x554 y469). Unfortunately it is beyond his abilities to help, so he sends you to find somebody else who should be able to. He gives you an introduction letter to take with you.

5. Return again to 穆大爺 (Eversun City, x119 y261). He gives you a request letter to also take to 敬慎大師 along with 雲山道長's introduction letter.

6. Travel to Eversun South and find 敬慎大師 (Eversun South x182 y104). If you don't see him at first just go to his spot and he should appear. He agrees to hold a service to help 穆大爺's mother find peace, even though doing so will take 10 years off his life. He gives you a scripture to take to 穆大爺 for him to become familiar with before the ceremony.

7. Return yet again to 穆大爺 (Eversun City, x119 y261). As part of the ceremony, he needs to prepare, among other things, a special vegetarian meal offering. This he leaves to you to help him sort out, and recommends you go to a friend of his, 何聞, who is currently working at the Inn as a chef.

8. Go to the Inn and speak to 何聞 (Eversun City x170 y268). He believes that 穆大爺 has made up for his mother's wrongdoings through his good deeds, and as he was helped by him a lot in the past, he agrees to help out with cooking the offering. However, he is missing one ingredient that he needs you to help out with..

9. Obtain 100(!!) Soybeans (黃豆), and then return to 何聞 (Eversun City x170 y268) once you have gathered them. These are the same Soybeans as requested by the Eversun Elder.

10. Having gathered all the Soybeans, speak to 何聞 and he will cook up the offering.

11. Return to 穆大爺 (Eversun City, x119 y261) one final time with the vegetarian offering and after a short dialogue the quest will be complete.


Rewards:
1 平安符 (7 day temp, counts down after equipping)
20,000 EXP

The 平安符 Protection Charm is a Talisman Slot Item which confers the following effects:
Max HP +8%, Max MP+8%, Damage from normal attack: Weaken, Damage from physical skill: Weaken, Damage from magical skill: Weaken.

The Test of Courage Event was also activated in the same patch as this one. This event was run in 2008 on Aeria, so information is available on Domo Wiki.

I have updated the rewards list on that article with the IC Domo version payouts.

In addition to those, you may also obtain two achievements from doing this event:

1 from completing the event successfully. (我不是膽小鬼 I am not a coward)
1 from starting the event but leaving through the npc without completing it. (膽小鬼 Coward)
