Lunar Festival blue lantern

The subject of this article or section is part of the Lunar Festival, a seasonal event that lasts several weeks. Once the event has run its course, this will no longer be available until next year, but there are no guarantees.

A Coin of Ancestry is a token acknowledging that you have esteemed an Elder enough to seek him or her out during the Lunar Festival. Coins of Ancestry persist after the event is over, and may be saved up from year to year.

SourceEdit

Coins of Ancestry can be obtained only during the Lunar Festival seasonal event. Each Elder gives you one Coin of Ancestry as a quest reward when you speak with him or her. There are 75 to collect during the event. The Coins of Ancestry are Bind on Pickup, as are the items they purchase, so each character must collect their own Coins of Ancestry for the items they want.

As a currency Edit

These Moonglade vendors are only present during the Lunar Festival.

The coins don't have a limited duration, so you can save your excess for next year's Lunar Festival.

AchievementsEdit

Several Lunar Festival World Event achievements are collecting Coins of Ancestry:

You are given credit for coins saved from the previous events. Since this is the first Lunar Festival since achievements have been added and there is no preceding context, it is unclear if Coins of Ancestry that you spend this year will count next year.

Since you can accumulate Coins of Ancestry from year to year, you do not have to visit the same number of elders to earn these achievement, but there is a separate Lunar Festival achievement series that tracks those visits, requiring you to visit individual Elders. If you visit the Elders for the Honor the Elders achievements, you will also get the Coins of Ancestry and earn the collecting the Coins of Ancestry achievement at the same time.

One achievement is a purchase that costs five Coins of Ancestry to complete:

You need to purchase one the festive outfits that Valadar Starsong sells:

[Festive Black Pant Suit][Festive Blue Pant Suit][Festive Teal Pant Suit]
[Festive Green Dress][Festive Pink Dress][Festive Purple Dress]

These cost 5 Inv misc elvencoins each.
