    Frostfell is active on Test!

    Tis the season to brighten our lives and those around us with gifts, good food, and warm hearths!

    All across Norrath you’re sure to find people celebrating this festive Deepice holiday, but it’s just not Frostfell without visiting the Frostfell Wonderland Village! This enchanting land of ice and adventure, found on the other side of the Magic Closet within your city, holds wonders and adventures for everyone!

    From there you are welcome to visit the Frostfell Workshop, where Frostfell elves have been busy preparing for the celebration, or Frostfell Wonderland's Icy Mines, where the holiday fuels used to craft all those special Frostfell gifts are obtained.

    Don't forget to log in each day and claim your extra-special Frostfell present from Santa Glug, and watch for one of his helpers to make a special appearance in Freeport and Qeynos. You might just find some special holiday collectibles in your stocking!

    The pluralization is as amusing as usual. I just made some Holly Jolly Leather Armwrapses and Holly Jolly Leather Bootses, and it amuses me more than it should!
  3. Niami DenMother Well-Known Member

    The Holly Jolly Leather Boots and the Holly Jolly Shoes look identical in the preview and when worn.
  4. Whilhelmina Well-Known Member

    I want fisheses ;p

    THANKS for getting us to do A Deepice Mystery once and for all! I was really fed up with that quest!
  5. Niami DenMother Well-Known Member

    Stuttering item name (recipe name is fine) "Frostfell Cinnamon Stripe Frostfell Cinnamon Stripe Arched Door Frame"

    Flavor text askew - Sugar Sweet Dreams says it summons a holiday present, not holiday sweets

    And now I see it is a copy/paste error. The slimer was released last year, the mulcher this year, but the flavor text is off.
  11. Whilhelmina Well-Known Member

    Major problem (someone already bugged it IG so posting here): if a player walks into the mound that is the mine entrance for new quest, the char gets stuck in place and can only evac/port out/zone in if char has the quest. Stuck loc is: 25.08, -1.96, -1216.21 in Frostfell wonderland village

    PLAYERS: DO NOT WALK ON THE MOUND IN FF WONDERLAND VILLAGE WITHOUT THE QUEST OR YOU4LL GET STUCK AND WILL HAVE TO EVAC/GATE OUT!
  12. Schmetterling Well-Known Member

    Was about to ask when we get Frostfell , so exited. :D
    I am so happy we get most of Frostfell on Kaladim and thanks for the kitty :)

    lol we could have a special Frostfell frozen stuck party for all test people .


    I love the new items .
    The striped building blocks remind me of some striped cathedrals and mosques I have seen in Turkey .
    I love the sofa and love seat
    I love the plushies
    I adore that light blue and white outfit and all the festive nick knacks .

    don't we already have a clear ice tile from the New Hallas city fest ?
  13. Schmetterling Well-Known Member

    Is there going to be an Overseer quest for Frostfell ?
  14. Whilhelmina Well-Known Member

    it's a special tile that freezes you
  15. Schmetterling Well-Known Member

    oooooooooooooh :eek: , OUCH cool :cool: or I should say freezing cold .
  16. Dasi Member

    Didnt the Icy Keep dungeon used to self reset when you zoned out? Or am I misremembering it? It has been years since I ran it, hehe
    Breanna and Uwkete-of-Crushbone like this.
  17. Erinna Member

    When you examine the Tan Frostfell Reindeer Scroll, (from Santa Glug) it says:

    "This spell will summon a holiday present to your side to accompany you during your travels." o_O
  18. Whilhelmina Well-Known Member

    It changed some time back, at least it wasn't self resetting last year, you have to clear the lockout first. They made a change to all instances at a time and Icy Keep was affected at the same time, I don't know when it happened. But yeah, it did self reset but it doesn't any more, at least since last year (don't remember when it changed)
  19. Schmetterling Well-Known Member

    here are some inspirations for the new candy striped building blocks from the real world

    And we are missing the gig Frostfell tree in Freeport again ( don't know about Qeynos )

    Not this year, no, but I hope to for 2021.

    In previous years, due to time constraints, we've had to pick and choose which events got new content added to them. Thanks to the introduction of the Overseer system last expansion, in 2020 every annual event either had new Overseer content added or a new quest added! Nights of the Dead was the only one to have both (I'm counting PQ as a quest). I was really happy to have been able to add so many new quests, some of which even had new dungeons associated with them, for so many annual events this year. In fact, I was really pleased that with the addition of Overseer content, I was able to produce new content for every single annual live event in 2020, and that's on top of the new tradeskill recipes and/or merchant additions to each event that have happened every year.

    My plan, at this point, for 2021 is much the same; add Overseer content to those annual events that didn't get it added in 2020, and add new content (quests or collections or dungeon, etc.) to the events that only got Overseer content this year.

    I am glad to know that it was all appreciated by so many of you!
