For many players, the big appeal of this festival is the ample new opportunities to earn Achievement Points. Aside from that, the festival has some cute new minis you can work for, some interesting new Zephyrite helm skins, the Boss Blitz challenge in Divinity’s Reach, and the usual random loot drops from killing bosses and opening treasure chests.
There are a lot of events, and almost all of them earn you Festival Tokens. These are the festival’s currency, and can be exchanged for things at the special festival vendors. These vendors sell an assortment of tonics, minis, and Zephyrite armor skins.
The notable exception to Festival Tokens is the Treasure Hunt. This meta event earns you Bag of Loot, which you can turn in to the Treasure Hunt Reward Vendor. He sells kites for 200 bags, and a Mini Beach Gourdon for 1,000 bags. (I'm a sucker for choya stuff.)
The Treasure Hunt meta event takes place in the Labyrinthine Cliffs. Each round lasts five minutes. Check the wiki page for an event timer.
These drop from the Boss Blitz, and can be purchased with Festival Tokens. The Queen's Gauntlet is a series of solo boss fights, each with a unique mechanic. Check the wiki for details. The rewards are achievement points, festival tickets, and the satisfying glow of a job well done.
This is the headline event. In this event, players split up and coordinate to kill 6 bosses. When each boss is killed, their special attack is transferred to all the other bosses, so it's important to kill them all at the same time.
Your best road to success here is to check LFG for a good squad, and follow your squad leader's instructions.
