Are y'all ready to dance? The Annual Masquerade Ball
has officially begun. Make sure to stay hydrated because the dance floor will be open until 11:59pm on June 12.
The Masquerade Forums
will close on June 17.
Use the following code in your status and other places to get friends (and strangers) to share a dance with you!Code:
Want a little more surprise in your dancing? Try the Mystery Dance
feature! Note: Mystery Dancing has its own timer separate from dancing on the forums/chosen user/etc. So you can do a mystery dance and then go dance on the forums right after!
Before you step on the dance floor, make sure you are wearing a mask
. You can grab one from Migrating Masks
. There are no new masks this year but quite a few old masks have been unretired! Note: any item with the word 'mask' in the name should work for dancing, rarity doesn't matter.
While dancing, you have the chance at getting Steamworks Trinkets or Lounge Trinkets. The Lounge Trinkets can be spent on delicious foods and drinks at the Libertine Lounge
while Steamworks Trinkets can be spent for all sorts of goodies at the Steamworks Menagerie
. This is the only wave of items for both shops, enjoy!
Keep an eye out for Boudewijn while you dance. If you manage to win a duel with him, he’ll give you a bag of trinkets. He won’t actually kill you in a duel, so no worries there!
Oh, and just a reminder! You have a chance of unlocking the Dancing Steamwork Style
achievement when using the Mystery Dance
feature. This achievement will give you the rad Steamwork Masquerade avatar border. When you dance with people you choose (like friends, on threads, etc), you have the chance to unlock the achievement Dancing Rave Style
which will give you the bright Rave Masquerade avatar border. These were added last year and are back for you to get this year!
