Valentine’s Day Massacre

Purchasing the Love Maker and Heartbreaker costumes* will allow you to temporarily join one of these time-limited factions. Head to the Cinderlands outside Yehara’s Mirage to use Essence of Love tokens to spin the Scorching Sands Pinchy Wheels of Fate there. You’ll need to wear one of the faction costumes to do so, and stay alive as the Love Makers and Heartbreakers clash. Defeat 20 members of the opposing faction to unlock an Achievement, and open up the ability to purchase the opposing faction’s Half Heart. Grab both Half Hearts, and along with 30 gold, Transmute these items to create the True Heart item which will go into the new Heart item slot. This new item slot will see more options in the future, but this is the first chance you’ll have at using this brand new gear type.

No matter which side you identify with, you’ll need to use both costumes to spin the wheels, collect both halves of the Heart, and combine it into the True Heart gear piece, providing your character with 1 Boss Attack Power and a unique visual effect. While you’re there, achievements and titles can be obtained for killing the opposing faction—stay alert!

*These are limited-time event costumes, and not permanent additions to your costume collection.
