Aaaah. This is actually my first time in this particular event forum. I figured why not. I'm just waiting to hear back on my Apprenticeship in Dernier Cri.
I don't like events like these, generally. It makes it hard for a majority of users.
Oh? You got an apprentice ticket? Well, a tad belated, but congrats on that! I hope you get to go in D*Cri then! He is an amusing Shop NPC. And you should fit in nicely to replace the now missing Kanoko from the shop.
