Summer Festival Ticket Guide

The Summer Festival ticket prizes feature some desirable items and therefore players are asking themselves how to farm them effectively. So we continue our event coverage with guide that outlines the few ways to get tickets.

Sahha Ticket-Ball

Volley of the WallThe ticket-ball is the most obvious way to obtain tickets on a daily basis. As we’ve already reported there are some easy and fast ways to get to or close to 30 volley per ticket. And with that 30 chances to obtain tickets. The chance for a Mithral one isn’t great, but they do drop every now and then. And in the meantime you’ll be hoarding Bronze and Silver ones.

The more characters you complete the daily with, the more tickets you’ll earn. Since it’s relatively easy to get to the last reward tier of 300 volleys, the event remains very alt friendly and big accounts can profit. Albeit obvious: It’s much more efficient to just gather flowers and craft the daily ball instead of doing the 10-minute Sahha.

It’s important to notice that spam kicking the ball by all players adds to the speed of the exchange, but takes away effectiveness. To get to the max of 30 volley per ball only the player dropping the ball should kick it.

Sahha game queue

Sahha PitchThe daily Ticket-Ball is the most efficient way to obtain tickets, but is obliviously capped. Those that brought all their characters through the daily or don’t want to gather flower for the umpteenth time can try their luck in the Sahha game. Tickets drop from the end chest, but players are reporting an abysmal drop rate for a ten minute time investment. Tooltips suggest that also profession resources can drop to craft an additional Ticket-Ball, but we have yet to receive a report confirming it.

It seems the game itself is more of a fun-competitive than grind-factor. A dev in the forum indeed confirmed it’s not the premier way of obtaining tickets.

Training ball farm

R.I.P. This looked to be a legitimate way to farm the event, but is now gone.

Oh the scammers

Summer and Winter Festival are the times of the year your ignore list grows the most. I personally feel it got a lot worse with the chance at legendary prizes. You absolutely want to keep the exchange in-house for maximum honesty if possible. Legit community is another great place as well. Also let players link their ball in the party. It’s not great security, but might scare a few and helps avoiding misapprehensions. I always run into some groups where members thought they’d be joining Sahha.

Overall acquiring tickets doesn’t seem to be equally easy as getting Bountys during the Jubilee. The most efficient way is capped, Sahha matches are too long and unrewarding and the training ball farm has been removed. I think doing the daily on as many characters as possible is the best way to farm the event.

To help players judge the grind we’ve set up boxes in our RNG tool that estimate the AD value of a silver and bronze ticket. Have fun with it!

    I would love to know your opinion on what to buy with silver tickets, sitting at 600+ tickets and totally unsure what to get…I want to maximize AD value per ticket of course. Brutals seems a nice way to get enchants both for my own use but also to sell off, however, I am torn with respect to the refinement item and its potential RP value when 2xRP happens. Any insights?
