O’Zapft is Heroes of Arkesia!
As the nights grow longer and the summer pool parties draw to an end, the fall season of festivals celebrating community and kinship begins. Beginning on September 16, Arkesia will host the first Arktoberfest— a tribute to Oktoberfest, the world's largest Volksfest (people's festival) which features a traveling funfair along with a food and beer festival held annually in Munich, Germany. Kindred in spirit to the original, Arktoberfest is a time to build relationships, celebrate with friends old and new alike, all through the medium of an abundance of delicious food and drink. In the coming weeks, you'll find themed festival foods in-game and all-new cosmetics available as Twitch Drops to help you, your raiding parties, and your Lost Ark communities celebrate Arktoberfest together.

Final Arktoberfest weekend
On the final weekend, a special 4-day Fever-time event will take place from September 30 to October 3. Each day, rewards can be claimed through the button normally— but a special track will also be active that grants a bonus prize. This extra reward track can be progressed through by logging and playing for 30 minutes each day. Once you meet the daily requirements, the next prize is reached. You only earn one prize, claimable at the end of the event, based on the number of days you met the requirements.
