False-Summer bathes London in a syrupy heat once again! Londoners, tired of the inclement good weather, set zail to melancholy Mutton Island to take the air. This year, however, the King-in-Coral holds court…
Supplicate the zee with sacrifices, to turn Mutton Island’s fortunes around. Dive beneath the waters of Shepherd’s Wash and explore the wrecks that linger beneath that forlorn isle. Descend as deep as you dare, and unearth what treasures courage allows. Bargain with the King-in-Coral for what you wrest from the zee.
Encounter new visitors to the island and trade your winnings, restore the festival to its former glory, and perhaps even meet the Green-Gilled Shipwright and see the works of his craft.
A Revamped Festival
Fruits of the Zee is our free, annual festival of the bounty of the zee. The festival begins today, the 7th of September, and ends on September the 21st.
You don’t need to own a ship to participate: anyone can catch a ferry from Wolfstack Docks to Mutton Island to join the festivities.
We’ve added a range of new activities and events to Fruits of the Zee this year. We’ve also replaced several old activities, chiefly the Fishing mechanic, in the process.
When you arrive at Mutton Island, you’ll be met with a new short story, beginning with ‘Mutton Island, Unadorned’. Playing through this storyline will unlock the new activities for the Festival.
In the first week of the Festival, you’ll be able to dive the wrecks off Mutton Island for treasures. To begin, you’ll need to raise your Five-Fold Devotion by Supplicating the Shore-line.
Once you begin diving, you’ll be able to push your luck as far as you dare, before emerging with a treasure. These treasures can be traded in the second week of the Festival. You can check the value of your treasures by reading the Fruits of the Zee Primer, available throughout the Festival.
The first week will conclude with a certain drowning event.
In the second week of the festival, you’ll be able to trade your treasures for Thalassic Favour at the Fruits Market.
You can then exchange Thalassic Favour for new items, items from previous Fruits of the Zee festivals, and economy items.
Items from previous years, as well as this year, are also available for Fate from the Fruits Market.
You may also trade several of the new items with visiting characters in exchange for cosmetic variants with identical statistics.
Finally, if you own a ship, you can also trade high amounts of Thalassic Favour for new ships from the Green-Gilled Shipwright. These ships are only available during the Fruits of the Zee.
Your ship’s value will be factored into the purchase - you may only have one ship at a time.
As always, those who have the Cladery Heart will need to stash it in London, but may trade in their other ship.
Those without a Destiny or wishing to change their Destiny may travel to Irem during the Fruits of the Zee Festival and find an option available to them there via the Riddlefishers: Matters of Destiny.
Those without a Destiny may also acquire one from the Drowning Feast, once the Fruits of the Zee Festival is restored in the second week.
