Days of Summer – Weekly Rewards

It’s time for some summer fun! And what better way to countdown the end of summer than helping out the ambling tradesbear, Yun Zi, to earn yourself some weekly rewards from his trove of inherited treasures. 

Maybe you’ve been away for a while and need a quick way to catch up to play with your friends or you need a bit of a boost so you can run those expert heroic zones, or perhaps your house is feeling a little stale and needs some redecorating? No matter what you need, Yun Zi has plenty of rewards to help you out! 

Each week from Tuesday, August 1st, 12:01AM PT to Monday, October 2nd at 11:59PM PT, Members can log into any character and earn rewards for all characters on their account by completing Yun Zi’s weekly quest! Yun Zi will have a new quest with unique rewards each week so be sure to help him out every week if you want to snag all of the possible rewards over the next two months. 

Yun Zi can be found in The Sundered Frontier, near the spires, and will have a new quest with new rewards available every Tuesday. This week’s rewards include a Cae'Dal Mercenary Geomancer, an increase of Divine Potency to level 30, Primary and Secondary Weapons and Adornments, and the Days of Summer Decoration Pack #1. Yun Zi’s second quest will become available Tuesday, August 8th at 12:01AM PT.

Future rewards range from a Summer Bloom Familiar, heroic level gear, additional divine potency levels, ascension focus adornments, the Mara Estate home and more!
