Description

Nothing swells national pride more than a common cause. Something to fight for, something to protect. Starting on June 29th, a special caravan departing from North Eastern Maiz Prairie will need YOUR protection!

When logging into Mabinogi on June 29th, you will receive a quest asking you to visit Maiz prairie in Iria. A waxen wing of the goddess will be provided so that you can quickly get to your destination. Talk to Castellon near the Mana Tunnel in North Eastern Maiz Prairie to complete the initial quest. After this quest is completed, you will receive three additional quests. These quests will ask you to support a caravan that departs from the Mana Tunnel at every 50 minute mark of each odd hour (1:50, 3:50, 5:50, 7:50) in real time.

Your primary mission is to escort this Independence Caravan through Maiz Prairie. Unfortunately, the Maiz Prairie is somewhat of a dangerous place this time of year. Monsters not of the region are attacking travelers with no provocation. It is your responsibility to look after the well-being of the caravan. If you can make it to the end of the road, you will receive Convoy Vouchers which are rewarded for ensuring the safety of the caravan and its supplies.

Be on the lookout for special monsters during your travels. Special event versions of Prairie Dragons, Ifrits, and Demi Liches will arrive and attempt to steal the goods you are charged with protecting.

You may cash in ten Convoy Vouchers for your payment with Castellon. For your troubles, he will reward you with an Independence Day Reward Box that will provide a piece of armor.

If you manage to escort a Convoy without losing a single wagon, you will be rewarded with a Special Convoy Voucher - only one of these is needed to receive Castellon's Independence Day Reward Box.

Take friends. You'll need them, and they'll need you. Let your national pride soar, and band together to protect the Independence Day Convoy![1]

Tips

  • All of the event monsters are extremely different from their normal variations. Some may even be bigger than their normal size. It is highly recommended to use maximum force.
  • There will be large mobs that vary in spawns from the list above. Being in a channel with a lot of people will ensure that the Caravan will arrive safely towards their destination, as well as checkpoints.
    • However, all players will be subject to lag due to the abnormal amount of people.
      • Minimizing people, blacklisting, and/or hiding names and parties will reduce some of the lag.
  • Mobs will not aggro Caravans, unless attacked by players.
  • To find the NPC at the checkpoints, use ctrl+tab-targeting while in normal mode, it will on snap to NPCs.
    • Take advantage of the Minimize function, as NPCs are never minimized.
  • At the last base, there is a chance for Dragons to spawn. You will want to stay away from the caravans, as the Dragons' AoE attacks (e.g. Dragon Fireball, Stone Breath) will also hit the caravan if it targets you. Instead, try to lure the Dragons away so that the caravans don't get hit.
  • When Event Volatile Zombies spawn, it is best to use long-ranged knockback skills such as Magnum Shot and Firebolt to knock them away, and simply let them explode from there.
    • Alternatively, You can combat them if you have Explosion Resistance.
    • Another alternative, let your pets auto-attack it and unsummon the pet right as the pet finishes the Zombie.
