Quest information[edit]





After accepting the quest from Coordinator Tahyaa, talk to Nubah Lao in Sunqua Vale (right outside the Monastery). Now either buy 10 Piles of Glittering Dust from a material trader or check Category:Drops dust to obtain them yourself. Talk again with Nubah Lao and return to Coordinator Tahyaa to claim your reward.


Initial dialogue[edit]

Coordinator Tahyaa
"Does not Shing Jea look wonderful? We have worked hard to ensure that the festival is an enjoyable time for all, but we also need to make sure everyone stays safe while we celebrate this New Year. The nian have been quite active of late, which has kept Nubah Lao busy scaring them away from the monastery. His fireworks chase the nian away so we can celebrate in peace. He is a wonderful craftsman. In fact, he has volunteered to create fireworks for festival attendees to use as long as they supply him with the necessary materials. You should talk to him and get yourself some sparklers or rockets. You do not want to be left out of all the fun, do you?"
Yes Accept: "Fireworks, hmmm? I could use some of those to scare off Right. That's it."
No Decline: "Bottle Rockets? I'd probably shoot myself in the eye."
Ask Ask: "Have you met with Nubah Lao yet? He's just outside of the monastery in Sunqua Vale."

Intermediate dialogue[edit]

Nubah Lao
What is that you say? You need tire forks? What is a tire fork? OH! FIREWORKS! Sorry about that. This constant booming has put a horrible ringing in my ears. I can certainly make some for you, but I require all the materials I have on hand for the fireworks that are protecting the monastery from the Nian. I do have some extra time at the moment, however. All I have to do now is light these off periodically. I tell you what, I do have some spare materials lying around but I will need glittering dust to make anything worthwhile. Bring me 10 piles of glittering dust, and I can make you one of each type of firework for you to play with.

If your inventory has at least 10 Piles of Glittering Dust:

Nuhah Lao
Excellent! This is exactly what I needed. It will take me a while to finish these. So instead of making you wait, I'll have Coordinator Tahyaa give you some of the fireworks I already made while I get to work making replacements with this dust you brought me. Now if you don't mind, I need to set up the next batch of rockets. Can't have the nian storming the monastery and ruining the festival. Go talk to Tahyaa and she'll take care of you.

Reward dialogue[edit]

Coordinator Tahyaa
"There you are! Nubah sent a messenger ahead, so no need to explain anything. He seems quite happy to be making more fireworks. Sometimes that man worries me a little. Anyway, here you go! Oh, Nubah said that if you want more fireworks to shoot off during the festival, just bring him the materials he needs and he will gladly make them for you. Talk to him. He can tell [sic] what he needs. Now, go enjoy the festival!"
