    Got a guide for the new quests?

    • Shane Jordan

      Two come from NPC’s already there, the Fishing Otter and the Musket quest Otter. Musket quest otter does the Fool and Mermaid quests. Its a simple run back and forth to talk to people.

      Another quest starts from the Olivia Inn Keeper, she has you deliver lunch boxes to the merchants in the Waterpark. Quest gives you shovels… now to find out what to do with them

        I meant these two:
        [Event] A Midsummer Night’s Sand Gatherer
        [Event] A Midsummer Night’s Lighthouse Keeper

        Tried to wait during night time to see if anything pops but nothing.
