Rewards

Each reward in the "Mothman Equinox item" list has an 11.11% chance to drop. Rewards are determined based on the number of remaining pyres at the conclusion of the event, as well as the quality of the dance party finale. Best performance may only be achieved by successfully defending all three pyres, while Good and Bad performance result from two and one pyre remaining, respectively. If all three pyres are destroyed, then the event will end in failure. In addition to automatic quest rewards, the Wise Mothman may be communed with in order to receive True Wisdom of the Mothman, a temporary buff which grants +15% XP for 60 minutes.

DescriptionLog Entry
Speak to Interpreter Clarence (Duration 10m)I've been called to Point Pleasant to participate in the Mothman Equinox. I should speak with Interpreter Clarence to begin.
In order to begin the ritual of the Mothman Equinox, I must help destroy all of the vines surrounding the ritual pyres in Point Pleasant. I will then be given a task by one of the Observers attending to the pyre.
The vines have all been destroyed, and the Observers have given their instructions. I am to gather albino Radstag blood, hunt down and kill Cultist Prophets, and destroy totems found along the rooftops.
All of the pyres must be lit before the ritual of the Mothman Equinox can begin.
The sky has changed and I feel very odd. However, I am compelled to fight and defend the ritual's pyres from twisted visions of cultists. I must protect the pyres if I hope to receive enlightenment.
The pyres are safe, but we must return to the roof ot the Mothman Museum to welcome the Wise Mothman. I must dance, sing, or perform any sort of emotion to call him to us.
The ritual of the Mothman Equinox has been a success. The Wise Mothman has arrived. I must commune with him to get a glimpse of his wisdom.

Behind the scenes

The Mothman Equinox was originally teased as "The Ritual" on the 2021 roadmap as part of the Tales from the Stars update. On September 28, 2021, the roadmap was revised, including a rename for the event. It is anticipated to be released during Winter 2021 as part of the Night of the Moth update.
