The Magma Embear was part of the 2014 Flameforger’s Festival in Flight Rising. It is an annual event that takes place at the end of August. At the time I am writing this blog, there are still a few days left in which players can participate in the Flameforger’s Festival. This time around, all of the special Holiday Familiars are bears. Last time, it was a series of Sprites.
The best way to obtain an Elemental Familiar is to pick it up while the holiday is going on. Miss that opportunity, and you will have a much harder time of getting that particular Familiar. You can take your chances in the Auction House (and hope another player is selling one). Or, you can wait and see what Familiar will appear as part of a randomized event in December. All of the artwork in this post is a copyright of Flight Rising.
The quickest way to find out if an Elemental Holiday is happening is to visit the Festive Favors section in Flight Rising. You will see one of two things. If you see a cart that looks closed, it means there is no holiday happening at that time. If you see a cart that is open for business, that means there is a holiday happening. The banner on the cart, and the special items it offers, change for each holiday. For the Flameforger’s Festival, it looks like this:
Players who are new to Flight Rising might not realize that there is a special Holiday Currency that goes with each Elemental Holiday. You cannot use Treasure or Gems to purchase things from the Festive Favors cart. Instead, you must gather up enough of the special currency and use that when you make your purchase.
The easiest way to get the Holiday Currency – for any Elemental Holiday – is by going to the Gather Items section in Flight Rising. Set the drop down box under each of the Gathering categories to “Fire”. Click the button. The Holiday Currency will appear as a random drop. (You will also get some of the usual types of items along with it).
The special Holiday Currency for the Flameforger’s Festival is called Glowing Ember.
Glowing Ember: – Holiday Item – A smoldering clump of embers that is almost too hot to hold. This can be traded at the Festive Favors shop during the Flameforger’s Festival – Sell Value: 0
You need 35 Glowing Ember currency to buy the Magma Embear.
Magma Embear: – Familiar – Guardian of the Ashfall Waste. (Flameforger’s Festival 2014.)
