Autumn Banquet 1

The celebration goes on day and night for several days in a row. The tables are lined with all kinds of delicacies. Travelers that happen to pass by are also warmly welcomed to join the festivities. Travelers that learned of the origins of this festival from the villagers spread the news of this inspirational event, letting more people know and giving them the opportunity to share in this lovely event.

Now, the custom of the Autumn Banquet has already spread to every city and village. During the celebrations, people gain a better understanding of how truly wealthy they really are, and they also give thanks for each others' well being. I hope that this year's Autumn Banquet will warm your heart too.

In 2023 this event started on November 9th with Patch

In Taborea, ostriches take the place of turkeys in our world (although turkeys are actually peacocks, not ostriches).

Provision Collection[ | ]

If Fatigue reaches 100 you will be Exhausted for 10 seconds. be sure to run past Water Buckets to reduce Fatigue. The Water Buckets are always found near fence rails along the road. Try to learn where they are and run your route to pass near as many as possible to keep your speed up.

Autumn Banquet - Provision Collection - Speed Blessing

You are offered three experimental speed-boosting spells.:

  • Normal Acceleration Blessing: 65% run speed increase, Fatigue can be mitigated by drinking water, free
  • Provision Courier's Acceleration Blessing: 90% run speed increase, Fatigue can be mitigated by drinking water, costs 3,000Gold 
  • Provision Courier's High-Speed Blessing: 120% run speed increase, no Fatigue, costs a Transport Rune Transport Rune worth 3Diamonds ($0.09) 

You don't have to talk to the Provisions Supplier at Peerston Farm, Maidge's Farm, or Dorian's Farm; just get near them to pick up the bag, then run it back to the Provisions Supervisor. You can only carry one bag at a time.

Autumn Banquet - Provision Collection -Bag of Provisions

The further farms increase your points accordingly.


  • Provision Courier's High-Speed Blessing is worth the $.09, so I recommend doing it.
  • If you did not get the top blessing, the Water Buckets are located along the road, and they reduce your fatigue! Just run past them.
  • IF you crash during this run it is over. The speed buff, timer and bag of provisions do not remain after you log back in, but you will get whatever reward you have already earned up to that point.
  • It is worth the extra time to run to Dorian's Farm 3 times, then Peerston Farm for the last, short, run. You should get to 32 easily.

Ostrich Caravan - Herding Ostriches

Use the Herding Ostriches skill to drive a Caravan Ostrich to Lorence Hollow. Just pick one that is not moving.

He appears 4 times in the database, so we are guessing he appears in one of four different places.

He pauses twice on the way to Varanas Gates. if you are alone, and have stopped your ostrich, run back and grab another!

Talk to an Ostrich waiting to be looked after. We highly recommend you write down what it says!
