The Great Fantage Masquerade festivities include: 

  • Environments Fit for a King:  Fantage gets decked out with masquerade masks, costumes and multi-color banners for the occasion.
  • Masquerade Parade: Several floats move through Carnival every 15 minutes. Players can click on various parts of the floats to earn stars.
  • Guess Who?: Non-playable characters (NPC) take cover under limited-edition costumes while players are tasked with stringing together clues to unveil the NPCs’ true identity. 
  • Royal Rendezvous: Players can speak to the king and queen of the Masquerade to gain a special, but temporary costume. A new costume is featured every day of the event, so users are encouraged to bid hello to their majesties daily.  
  • Confetti Cannon: Players can click on the confetti launcher to release a colorful effect for a truly magnificent masquerade atmosphere.
