If you do not collect all the spirits, they will disappear the next morning. We recommend finishing the event on the same day.

After collecting the spirits, you can go back to where you first saw Wisp the Ghost. He will give you an item as a reward.

All Wisp Rewards and Best Reward Choice

Choose Between "Something New" and "Something Expensive"

Choose Reward.jpg
As thanks for collecting all the spirits, Wisp will give you an item as thanks. You can choose between something new, and something expensive. However, regardless of what you choose, the items to choose from are always randomized.

Choosing "Something New"
If you're trying to catalog as many things as possible, we recommend choosing "Something new".

Wisp will give you an item that you don't currently have in your catalog.
Choosing "Something Expensive"
If you're happy with your catalog and need some Bells, choose "Something expensive" instead.

Keep in mind that Wisp's sense of what is expensive seems to be a bit off!

List of Items

Wisp can give you most items from the catalog, but seems to stick to relatively cheap items.
