    Backstory
    The good people of Vardan Valley were all set to join the Lunar New Year festivities in Brackenridge when along came Kil'Joy the Goblin. Kil'Joy the Goblin, enemy of joy, a confirmed master of disguise, appeared to the villagers in the visage of a feeble old merchant driving an immense empty wagon. He drove is big rickety wagon to the center of town, interrupting the Mayor's 'Lunar New Year' address to the townsfolk (which is mostly about how to avoid injury on the long walk to Brackenridge).

    Kil'Joy's illusory 'dying old man' begged the villagers to load their firecrackers and rat pets and red envelopes onto his wagon. He too was heading for Brackenridge to celebrate the new year. But he was alone. Lonely and unwanted. Without family. Without a purpose - this joyful celebration would surely be his last.

    "Let me take part in your joy. Fill my wagon that I may help you on your journey. Please? Let my life have purpose... one last time," he groveled with tears welling up in his ancient eyes.

    "Fine," said the Mayor. "That's just fine. You know it is a very long road and a whole lot to carry."

    The smitty nodded sternly and bellowed, "Aye! Surely this good and wise old man isn't going to steal from us."

    "Yes!" the tavern maid sung in agreement. "It's been nearly a full year since we've had even the slightest whiff of trouble. Let's do it!"

    And so they did! The villagers of Vardan Valley loaded their wares upon the old man's wagon. Every egg, every envelope, every painted mask, every shining Arcanite vanity and shoved it aboard the old man's wagon. "See ya at the Tavern," the old man cackled as he drove off. "Happy New Year... suckers!"

    It didn't take that long for the people of Vardan Valley to realize that they had been scammed. So they sent their Sheriff to track down Kil'Joy (and get help from Arlorian heroes if necessary).

    What's New This Year

    +Similar to other events this year, you'll need to grab a Kil'Joy Hunter's Elixir from Sheriff Qian for 5,000 gold for a chance to spawn Kil'Joy.

    + All store eggs are limited quantities. Shenlong and Fuzanglong can only be purchased from the Store and will not be available as drops.
    + We've fixed a few bugs from last year, including Kil'Joy slaying low level players in a way that he really shouldn't be able to. His name is Kil'Joy, not Kil'Players.

    Summary

    + The Lunar New Year Event will run for a festive three (3) weeks starting this Thursday! Get cool new vanity items, pets and more!

    + Sheriff Qian of Vardan Valley will appear in towns and ask for help tracking down Kil'Joy the Goblin.
