Update - April 6, 2021[edit]

Super Adventure Festival[edit]

Moto's world-renowned Super Adventure Box returns again when the Super Adventure Festival kicks off on April 6! Explore two worlds of excitement, peril, and educational entertainment to earn holographic weapons and a variety of loot. Travelers can visit the Adventure Box in Rata Sum—temporary portals have been placed in each major city to facilitate easy travel to the scenic hub of asuran culture!

  • Festivities begin on April 6 at 9 a.m. PST (UTC-8)[sic] and continue until April 27 at noon PST (UTC-8)[sic].
  • Complete the festival's meta-achievement, (Annual) Super Adventure Box Nostalgia, to earn the adorable new Super Ooze mini! Last year's reward, the Virtual Box helm, is now available from the Super Adventure Box Trader.
  • A new weapon-set upgrade is now available! If you have added Kaiser Snake or Crimson Assassin weapons to your wardrobe by playing Super Adventure Box, speak with the festival rewards vendors to trade your hard-earned bauble bubbles for the ominously hued Crimson Vanquisher weapons!
  • New ooze enemies are tucked away in each zone. Dig them up and carry them to an ooze farmer to earn baubles! A rotation of target zones has been added to the daily achievements—turning in an ooze in the target zone will earn you extra baubles once a day!
  • New weekly achievements have been added to the Super Adventure Festival. Complete every zone in each world during a week to receive bonus loot!
  • The Super Adventure Box Weekly Trader's inventory has been updated with a limited quantity of Amalgamated Draconic Lodestones each week during the festival.
  • New Super Adventure Box themed guild decorations have been added! Guide your hall's visitors with the Box's helpful Super Pointing Hands!
  • Improved responsiveness of the bouncy mushrooms and trampolines found throughout Super Adventure Box.
  • A number of Super Adventure related bugs have been fixed to ensure a safe education for all heroes.
