Description

It's that time again. It seems that the NPC Vermont needs some goods to be transported. Starting on November 16th, a special caravan departing from South Western Maiz Prairie will need YOUR protection!

When logging into Mabinogi on November 16th, 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 Vermont near the North Western area of the 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 lower area of the Maiz prairie at every mark of each even hour (02:00, 04:00, 6:00, 8:00) 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 Vermont. For your troubles, he will reward you with an Human Caravan Event Reward Box.

If you manage to escort a Convoy without losing a single wagon, you will be rewarded with a Special Caravan Voucher - only one of these is needed to receive a Human Caravan Event Reward Box. take friends. You'll need them, and they'll need you.[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 apart from Event Leprechauns, will only aggro and attack 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 or Event Hobgoblin Grenadiers 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.
    • Beware of Event Hobgoblin Grenadiers as they may self-destruct on sight after noticing a player.
  • If there are no players nearby the caravan, the event monsters will fail to 'notice' the caravan and they will not attack.
