Hatching-tide (2016) is a seasonal event that took place from March 15, 2016 to March 28, 2016.
Spring: that wonderful season of renewal and rebirth. A time when buds blossom into flowers and dreams blossom into reality. What then will become of the realm's biggest dreamer─Jihli Aliapoh of Gridania─as she prepares for the spring festival of Hatching-tide? Blessed with a vision from the Twelve Archons, she now seeks adventurers from all corners of the realm who would take part in the festivities, and rejoice in the return of these legendary heroes.
