So Nexon added some events for Thanksgiving, which is not that common for MMOs. While I would’ve loved to fight giant turkeys, it seems like there’s nothing of that sort. I tried out some of the events the past few days, which included eating turkeys and fishing for ‘bling’. There is also a discount for item shop stuff on Black Friday.
From noon till midnight PST, mystic turkeys drop from monsters. You can eat these to grow bigger, but they also have a 20% chance to revert you to normal size. I can so see these being the next Viagra. The odd thing is that occasionally, the event “ends” and you revert anyway. It seems bugged, and I’m not really sure how the event is supposed to work. In addition, turkeys drop from everything. Funniest ones include mining turkeys, gathering turkeys from hens and getting a turkey from a poison herb patch (I’m not so sure it’s edible).
Sometimes, they stack and end up being psychedelic. I ate a bunch and got to 25.4cm before the event ended. Then, I stuffed my herb pig with turkeys too. Look at those skinny legs!
There is a fishing event where you can get golden items (two handed sword, warhammer and mace) and a dark red crossbow. I wasn’t really interested in this event even though I have rank 5 fishing and a W22 on my alt since I don’t plan to use any of the items. However, they are nice to sell, especially if you keep them after the event ends. I can’t afford much inventory space, so I went and only fished for an hour. I ended up getting a golden 2HS anyway.
Finally, there’s a Black Friday discount for the Item Shop. We don’t have Black Friday up here in Canada… I guess it’s a big thing down in the US? I don’t use the item shop, so it doesn’t really concern me. However, I did find the promo pic interesting. It seems they added Manus to this KR Mabi picture just because he’s black.
No matter how I look at it, Manus reminds me of Michael Jackson. He better not lay his dirty hands on Ibbie!!!
