    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, including a new set of tasks being offered by Pilip Mumbletoes.

    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 of the new special holiday collectibles in your stocking!

    Some other changes have been made, as a result of feedback received during the event last year:
    • An invisible barrier has been erected surrounding Santa Glug to make it easier to speak with him, even when he is bombarded by other adoring fans.
    • Lovers' Gazebo Assembly Kit - Item can no longer be used in the Frostfell Wonderland Village.
    • Icy Something Worth Mining - Adventurers who have had the Frostfell Wonderland's Icy Mines zone reset while attempting to dispose of Cryogias need only now speak with Twinklecane to get another chance at the fight. (Previously they had to restart the quest.)

    o my I just love that ceramic Frostfell tree :D <3
  6. Kattt Active Member

    OMG, yes! Was just coming here to say THANK YOU on the ceramic Christmas trees! I got the green one from Santa today and it is awesome! Brings back childhood memories. :)
    Kaitheel, please tell whoever designed those ceramic trees....BRAVO! =D

    [emphasis mine]

    I hereby nominate Kaitheel for canonization...again, already! :D

    It's also very good that jerks can't clutter up the Village with stuff from another holiday, though if they were trying to "protect" Santa Glug from having to "[run] from [his] fans" (--Beatles), I could see that...

    And while I never had to worry about Cryogas or whoever, that's a better, less frustrating way to handle it. Well done, sir! :D

    The most important question remains! :eek:

    Will Denmum have the time now to let us know what all is possible to get? :-/

    who has to do up the spreadsheets for The Horde accordingly...

    Updated Quest trackers have been provided to Denmum. I am sure as time allows, she'll have something soon (tm)

    House Item:
    Shimmering Splendor Frost Star
    This item may be placed on the floor of all house types.
    This item cannot have its scale adjusted.

    Place this stein in your house or guildhall and watch the beer spill out!
  11. Uwkete-of-Crushbone Well-Known Member

    I know, I know, probably not possible...but could we get Santa Glug to give out gifties every 12 hours instead of every 18? The maths are eye-crossing... X-P

    Not to mention, the chance of getting all our alts covered (I know I'm not the only alt-aholic out there) in the time allotted... ;->

    thank you for those trackers Casdoe! I've been using them for years :)

    18 hours is the game standard for once-a-day. It is this way, intentionally.

    Is there any chance of bringing back the Emerald Gem as a material? It's silly making "green" things (and variants on the term) out of red, blue, or black gems. :(

    I have examples if needed... ;->

    It would also fit in the 56 slot bag. As it is, we only have 55 mats for it...

    Thank you, Casdoe! :)

    BUG: Perhaps? Or something in my computer glitched on it? Went to look up the stuff on the Merchant these days and tried to peek at the Dressing Room for the Prefabricated Snow Woman Plushie, and the 'Room was blank. It worked for the Prefab Snow Man Plushie...and when I went back and forth between the art for the Prefab Snow Man Plushie and the Prefab Snowman, there wasn't any visible difference in the Dressing Room art between the two (I hadn't bought them to place and see what the size differences might be). Then I went back to the Prefab Snowwoman, to see if her art was different than the Plushie (as if I could tell ;->), and it was at least there. Went back to the Prefab Snow Woman Plushie to see if looking at the other would stimulate something; blank Dressing Room. Back to the Prefab Snowwoman, and now her Dressing Room was blank as well.

    Weird! :-/

    Santa Glug's giving little kitten pets to chase your shoelace and trip you, while you're fighting for your life on the ice! :cool:

    I haven't found any bugs yet, so I thought I'd throw that in there. ;)
