There are two parts to this event - the first focuses on unlocking new quests using Merit Talismans, while the second features a new farmed material, the Big Lotus Flower, and Merit Orbs, which are used to unlock certain quests. Golden Pills, Divine Peaches, and Steamed Meat Buns represent the gold, silver, and bronze-rarity event materials, respectively.
Each part of the event takes one week, meaning that the farming process can be rather demanding (due to the amount of event CEs mandatory for farming). In light of this, it is recommended for players to set priority targets to aim for.
This event’s gacha CEs provide a +1 bonus to Golden Pills (GO WEST!!), Divine Peaches (True Samadhi Fire), and Steamed Meat Buns (All Three Forms), while the free CEs provide a +1 bonus to the other materials.
Notable in this event is the fact that aside from event CEs, the rate-up Servants also provide a +1 bonus to material drops; as such, it is recommended to bring them along (at least in the backline). In part 2, additional Servants will provide a +1 bonus to Big Lotus Flower drops as well.
It is essential that the player plays each and every one of the daily bonus quests, as these give you Merit Talismans (for part 1) and Merit Balls (for part 2), especially the latter, which grants the player access to Challenge Quests, which drop a generous amount of Big Lotus Flowers.
The best quest for farming each material are as follows:
Steamed Meat Buns
20AP Free Quest (Training Journey - Novice)
25AP Free Quest (Training Journey - Intermediate)
40AP Free Quest (Training Journey - Expert)
40 AP Free Quest (Training Journey - Flaming Mountain)
Big Lotus Flowers
Challenge Quests (require Merit Orbs)
40 AP Free Quest (Enlightenment Journey - Tathagata)
To clear the event shop, the following amounts of each material need to be gathered: 4,600 Golden Pills, 3,300 Divine Peaches, 3,900 Steamed Meat Buns, 6,000 Large Lotus Flowers
The following can be considered to be ‘the most important materials’ in the shop - meaning it is highly recommended to get them first before any other materials. Recommended for minimalist players.
There are six CEs exclusive in this event, all affecting the event item drops. Three of them can be obtained via random drops or Event Shops, while three of them can only be obtained from the pickup banner.
