    There is a known issue with the following objects, missing their art:
    • Glacial Canopic Jar
    • Cool Mint Gumdrop Sconce
    • Cool Mint Glass Lamp
    • Cool Mint Tea Cup
    • Cool Mint Tea Cup Stack
    • Cool Mint Sugar Plate
    • Cool Mint Tea Pot
    • White Poinsett Flower in Alabaster Pot
    • White Poinsett Flower in Radiant Pot
    • Jolly Blizzard Bramble
    • Rosy Blizzard Bramble
    • Attacking Gargoyle Ice Sculpture
    • Dormant Gargoyle Ice Sculpture
    • Nye'Caelona Snowglobe
    This should be resolved with the next update that includes art.

    Also, as with every year, the grand Frostfell Trees and event music within Freeport and Qeynos will be missing until the zone art is updated.

    What is the new mount?!
  5. Niami DenMother Well-Known Member

    Frosty Vesspyr Oak is HUGE on default size. (I think I like that it is animated, but the default size is a bit overwhelming.) The current max shrink size is fine for max shrink.

    Niggly: Teacup is generally one word, as is Teapot (Cool Mint Tea Cup, Cool Mint Tea Cup Stack, Cool Mint Tea Pot)

    BUG: Little Lost Goblin

    Revive points for the Frostfell version of Sleeper's Tomb are in the Sleeper's raid zones. :O (Yes, I know the goal is to not die, I was distracted answering a question. :D)

    Suggestion for the race where you run around helping the cubes escape with their candy canes (The Great Candy (Cane) Chase):

    Make it repeatable either right away or every two hours, and add the old music boxes as rewards. That'll bring back the music boxes and give people an incentive to keep running it after getting the achievement. Maybe the snowglobes or old Santa Glug gifts, too.

    Only 22,496 minutes until Frostfell!

    Is there a need for that "Primal Suppression" buff in "Sleeper's Tomb: A Frostfell Visit"? Is someone afraid we'll crit throw a snowball and freeze over the entire zone? ;D

    any other craftables need testing? or should I wait to test them when first fix comes?
    Uwkete-of-Crushbone likes this.
  12. Niami DenMother Well-Known Member


    All the craftables have been made, at least a couple times over, and craft properly. We're just waiting for images right now, I think.

    Changes have been made!
    • Little Lost Goblin - Respawn and evac in "Sleeper's Tomb: A Frostfell Visit" is now correct.
    • Little Lost Goblin - Entering "Sleeper's Tomb: A Frostfell Visit" no longer casts Primal Suppression onto the player.
    • Little Lost Goblin - Exiting "Sleeper's Tomb: A Frostfell Visit" now zones the player back to Frostfell Workshop.
    • Cool Mint Tea Cup is now Cool Mint Teacup.
    • Cool Mint Tea Cup Stack is now Cool Mint Teacup Stack.
    • Cool Mint Tea Pot is now Cool Mint Teapot.
    I don't know when these changes will be on Test, but they are coming!
    Thank you!

    It is huge, I agree. But its initial size (and min & max scale) matches the similar Vesspyr trees available currently.

    No-trade on the duck pets from Santa? Is this an error, I hope?

    Mea culpa. I never tried placing the Vesspyr trees in a Gorowyn guildhall before to realize how truly big they were. :D Only noticed it when I was setting up the holiday new item display. :D

    Little Lost Goblin Quest...

    When its time to return with token and with the Goblin. The error received was 'zone stated that merc was suspended but it also stated that there were too many players in zone and kicked me out. I had to turn around and zone back in to go back to return to Meg. Not a big deal but we shouldn't be kicked from zone, the Merc jsut needs to actually suspend.
