Coordinator Tahyaa is in charge of the Canthan New Year festival, making sure the event runs smoothly & that everyone has a good time.



Quests given:


"Hello, <character name>! Welcome to the Lunar New Year festival! My job is to make sure the event runs smoothly and that everyone has a good time."
Ask What is the Lunar New Year festival?
"I'm glad you asked! The festival has taken place for years, but not many know of its true heritage. Long ago, the emperor came to understand that each passing year exhibited characteristics normally associated with particular animals. In order to honor those animals and their influence over our lives, the emperor decreed that each year must be named for its patron animal. The emperor also noticed that the progression of years eventually repeated, so that is why you will hear people of different ages claim to be born in the same year. I will not bore you with the specifics of each individual year's animals. There are most likely others here who can shed some light on that subject should you be interested."
Ask What else can you tell me about? (Returns to the previous dialogue.)
Ask So what exactly do you do here?
"Well, as I said earlier, I make sure the festival runs smoothly. I ensure that the decorations are prepared, the fireworks ordered, and proper entertainment is provided throughout the festival. It can be rather tedious, to be frank, and I have to file a great deal of scrollwork with the ministry. Of course, once the festival begins, my job becomes a bit more exciting. It seems like something always goes wrong. Why, one year the fireworks didn't show up until the last day! The nian almost destroyed the entire festival and ruined everyone's luck for the whole year!"
Ask What else can you tell me about? (Returns to the previous dialogue.)


  • She will not offer quests to any character under level 5. The addition of the level requirement occurred in Canthan New Year 2008 and was probably added to prevent the festival quest farming that took place during the 2007 celebration.
  • Unlike most NPCs, Coordinator Tahya does not turn to face the character when talked to.
