General Information

A Golden Week – or sometimes a Golden Weekend – is a Double Ability Point event accompanied by a gold themed event bag. In addition, special Golden goodies in the Item Store are discounted by 90% or sold solely during the event.

The Gilded Rage event that accompanies it is a periodic event in which Samsu Nasiru, the final Guardian of Gaia, appears repeatedly throughout the world, bringing with it unique rewards and currency.

Join #event chat!

To get the most out of this event, it is highly recommended that you join the #event channel. This can be done by typing one of the following commands depending on client language:

/chat join event
/discussion rejoindre event
/chat beitreten event

Watch out for callouts in that channel! If someone announces that a golem is up, you can teleport to the Anima Well nearest to them by right-clicking their name and selecting Meet up.

Should you wish to make a callout of your own, announce in #event chat your dimension, instance, and zone for which the golem is located. That way, a player can ensure they have reached the right location, especially if the Gatekeeper is still walking when the callout is made. Coordinates of the Gatekeeper may be helpful in that case.

To find your Dimension, press F9. For Dimension and Server, shift+F9 will give the full information. It is advised that server be included if using Dimension in your callout.

If it’s the first time you have joined the #event chat channel, you may also want to subscribe to the channel. Right click the chat window tab and subscribe to #event.

Due to the high activity of the channel during events, it is suggested that you create a custom tab for #event, so that it can easily be found in one place without clogging up your General tab. To do this, click the + sign in the top right corner of your chat window. A list of channels will appear. Clicking on #event will create a tab that you can separate from the main chat window or reorganize as necessary.

Should you use #event in its own solitary tab to save your General tab, it is in that case fine to unsubscribe to the #event channel in the General window. The #event channel will consequently only appear in the desired tab.

Character Boosts

For the duration of the Golden Week, from March 1st to March 8th, a boost will be active on all players.

Double Ability Points: Every Ability Point earned is doubled! This effect stacks with Timed AP Boosters available in the Item Store. It does not work with AP Injectors.

Participation Rating System

There is a ranked participation system introduced with 2016’s Anniversary event to promote participation in boss fights while dissuading frequent AFKing.

Based on a player’s participation in a fight, they achieve a certain rating: Gold, Silver, or Bronze. Rating will determine the Pax Romana and XP rewards of a mission, with Gold rewarding the highest amount. Participation is based on how often a player is damaging or healing during an event boss.

In addition, only the Gold rating version of a mission will reward the Gambler’s Marker.

Bronze and Silver only award Genizah of the Solar Metal.
