Every Hunter
Completing the event quest Every Hunter's Dream will allow you to forge the incredibly strong Wyvern Ignition Impact. You can accept this quest if you're HR8 or higher so making this sword during the event period is a no brainer.

Raise Your Hunter Rank

During this event there are quests that are great for raising your Hunter Rank. As your HR goes up more quests will unlock so those who have a low HR should take advantage of these quests!

Collect Augmentation Materials

At the Winter Star Festival, quests where Augmentation Materials are easily obtained will be made available. We recommend making sure to take advantage of this availability due to the rarity of Augmentation Materials.
