Every day, the Escaped Moon Bunny world boss appears at 7:30 PM, 8:30 PM, 9:30 PM, and 10:30 PM (UTC) at Boulderwhite Mountain on each channel! Defeat it with your fellow Maplers to receive the goodies it drops!Loot can include Onyx Crystals, Crystal Fragments, Lapis Master Snare, Metacells, Colorful Crystal Boxes, a low chance of a Lapenshard Selection Box, and a guaranteed Pumpkin Jewel to spend at the Witchling Shop!
Regarding the Oceania Server
Is the Moon Bunny Run intended to only be for Oceania players who don’t sleep/work/go to school? Some example time zone conversions:
- AWST (e.g., Perth): 3:30am - 6:30am
- AEST (e.g., Brisbane): 5:30am - 8:30am
- ACDT (e.g., Adelaide): 6:00am - 9:00am
- AEDT (e.g., Sydney): 6:30am - 9:30am
- NZDT (e.g., Auckland): 8:30am - 11:30am
- etc. etc.
Additionally, as there are now only 4 Oceania channels, even players who are able to play at those VERY off-peak hours are only going to be able to gain a fraction of the event rewards that players on the European and US servers can (e.g., a maximum of 16 pumpkin jewels a day versus 28 to 36).
Witchling's Shop: It takes approximately 17 days of event participation to purchase everything!
Is this taking into account the considerably lower number of jewels that the Oceania players can obtain (due to the poor timing of the Moon Bunny Run and much reduced number of channels)?
I am sure that the intent behind this isn’t to exclude or disadvantage Oceania players in any way, so I am hoping that there might be some consideration given to:
- Swapping the Moon Bunny Run to a time more accessible to the bulk of the Oceania population, and
- Doubling the Moon Bunny Run drop rate so that Oceania players can gain a similar number of rewards as our 9-channel US and 7-channel European brethren.
We'll be discussing the event times internally today to see if there's something we can do, but I cannot guarantee anything (this is the first time there's a time-specific event in GMS2 and it appears to have been designed around UTC-0 being the prime hours, which may be an oversight). When I have news to share on this, I will share it immediately.
The 17 day expectation is in belief that players defeat the Escaped Moon Bunny four times every day (once per hour), and it includes being able to buy everything, including items players may have little care for pending on their wants and needs (in reality, you or someone else may need much less coins if you don't want, for example, the furniture box).
The servers should be up and running within 18 minutes of this post (4 PM PDT). We sincerely apologize for this issue, as this was the soonest we can get everything fixed with the Lapenshard being properly sent out to everyone who completed both events and setting back the dungeon counters of any player that hit the button to reset their counts.
