It left the Parties tab on September 28, 2017, and was replaced by the next seasonal adventure, Bitter Sweets. It returned on August 2, 2018, but left on September 27, 2018. It returned again on August 8, 2019; August 13, 2020; and August 5, 2021.


1. First, the player must talk to Tavie. She explains there are three mystical pearls which have the power to vanish the Phantoms, and she has located them to the island, which the pearls are each guarded by Tiki Statues. She tells them to retrieve all three pearls held by the tikis, the player has fifteen minutes to receive the pearls.

2. In order to receive the pearls, the player needs to run a few errands before the tikis are willing to give up their pearls. The errands consist of bringing a certain item, either a coin, fish, or crystal, to the tikis, followed by three random fruits, either a banana, pineapple, or coconut. The player must then return the pearls to Tavie.

The statue goals can be completed in any order.

Kapena Tiki Statue

  • The player needs to find a coin in the shallow waters surrounding the island, which are the light blue waters.

  • The gameplay of this adventure, finding specific items within a limited time, is similar to that of The Forgotten Desert.
  • There is a glitch where the player will get only jewels from the rocks. The player must reload to fix this.
  • When playing with a flying animal, there is a glitch where the map will not show the player's position correctly.
  • Other items can be picked up without warning when carrying the coin, fish, or crystal. When this happens, the player must search for the coin, fish, or crystal again. Once one of these items have been found, they can easily be found until one is delivered to its tiki.
  • There is also a small chance of having a glitch occur while getting the jewel for the Koa Tiki Statue, in which mining every single rock does not result in a jewel to be found.
  • When a player goes through the Arctic Wolf passage, the music changes from the upbeat music that plays in the adventure to a more slow, quieter version of the same song. When the player exits that passage, the music returns to its normal, upbeat song.
  • There is a glitch where if the player moves immediately after the adventure loads and before Tavie's dialogue appears, the adventure timer will not start and it will be impossible to talk with Tavie again to deliver any pearls.
  • When a player is fishing there is a chance that a boot will appear on the net. If the player clicks on the boot they will get Diamond Encrusted Gauntlets.
  • There is a glitch where the timer will not start and the player will not be able to do anything or exit the adventure. The avatar will drift to the side of the screen until it disappears. The player will need to reload to fix it.
  • There is a glitch where the timer will not appear and the player will not be able to talk to Tavie but will be able to talk to any other entity. The player will need to reload to fix it.
    • There is a similar glitch where the timer does start, but the player can interact with everything but Tavie.
  • There is a glitch with the rocks where the player cannot break them.
  • A glitch exists where when holding the coin and clicking on a holdable icon for shells, another coin will float on the water, when clicked the item will be replaced with another coin.
    • This occurs with the fish and jewel as well. They will keep spawning until you deliver it to the tiki.
  • There is a glitch where you deliver the pearl to Tavie, but she says the dialogue without giving the prize. The player will need to talk to her again to fix this.
    • Sometimes, the player will still not receive the prize if there are multiple players.
  • In 2019, AJHQ altered the probability of winning a Rare Spiked Collar or Rare Spiked Wristband in this adventure to be significantly lower than it had been in 2017 and 2018.
  • In 2021, AJHQ removed Rare Spiked Collars ("long" and "short") from the adventure's prize pool. However, Rare Spiked Wristbands can still be won.
