    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.

    Qira found that the new "ice brick" set is using the "glacier" set art.
  6. Hartay Well-Known Member

    Would love to see a building block set that matches the sweet peppermint sign.

    I've hit overload, and then some.

    In case I run screaming into the hills ... again, let me document what I'm in the midst of so others can add to it

    Santa Gifts 8 returning, 8 new ... so far 6 returning documented, 6 new
    new: Sweet Frostfell Sign Plate, Deepice Wrapped Present, Myrist Snowglobe, a tundra snapper (housepet), brontotherium plushie, mint candy crown of death
    returning: santa glug plushie, enchanted snowman, snowfall tapestry, tan reindeer plushie, a candy cane frostfell cube, a domestic mallard

    Orphan: I see a disco on this, it may be a santa gift, but it may instead be a collection reward: a stocking-stuffed Frostfell cube (fluff pet)

    Buyables on Gerbi - 5 new (only 3 figured out)
    an eggnog candycane frostfell cube
    entranced glacier plushie
    shelled frost slimer

    Gerbi's list is HUGE, so having u.eq2wire.com open is a "good thing" so you can see if there's only a Test discovery for something

    Giggawatt and Garselblatt have *something* in their list we've not seen for years. Not had time to sort it out

    Collections! 3 new ones, and they're the split type we see a lot in events ... some in the Frostfell Wonderland Village, some in Gorowyn/Halas, some in Qeynos/Freeport. I've not even tried GFay and Neriak yet to see what they turn up. I've been spreadsheeting which what is found where, but there's just information overload right now. More documentation/investigation needed.

    Is the staff suppose to match the cloak and mask? Or is it the odd one out?

    Pretty cool either way!

    __________________________

  11. Niami DenMother Well-Known Member


    Items in bold above are additions to the list- we've found them all. Thank you, Testers!
  12. Whilhelmina Well-Known Member

    Yay! we got them all!

    Could we get a separate merchant for new stuff like for tinkerfest and NoTD? Pleeeeeaaaase!!!!

    So far, the only outright bug we've found is the wrong art on the block set, as mentioned above.

    A (very) minor (and thus ignorable) niggly is that shinies in the Frostfell Wonderland Village can spawn in the same spot as presents, so you may need to do some harvesting to unbury your glowies there. :D

    A frostfell favor: on the steps where you have to speak to the Ghost, the Ghost of Frostfell Past/present/future doesn't have a feather. (yeah, I wasn't focusing and managed to leave the hosue instead of talking to him 'cause I relied on a missing feather)
    Cyrrena, Ocarinah and Breanna like this.
  15. Niami DenMother Well-Known Member

    And the mint candy crown of death is actually a mint candy CANE crown of death. My bad
  16. Niami DenMother Well-Known Member

    Preview-only issue, just an FYI - crafted "orange blaze wizard star" does not show the "star" part, only the blaze part on a preview. The other two wizard stars preview properly once you zoom in a lot so this is cosmetic :D (which is good, since I know the overloaded Art folks aren't going to have time to tweak any of this)
  17. Whilhelmina Well-Known Member

    Is that the Snowfall cape?
  18. Whilhelmina Well-Known Member

    So, I ran all the quests (except the TS one because masochism as its limits, y'know) with my main and everything works fine at current max-level.
    Level 110 chars without CD should mentor down to run Icy Keep (Hard) on their char while not grouped. It is indeed hard.

  19. Kaitheel Developer

    Yes! That was the returning item from 2011.

    Yeah, the staff has a blast of color, where the others are intended to be snow white. Glad you like them!
