Come celebrate the Holidays with Winterfest!

Winterfest is an annual event.

Overview

Winter has come to Cradle and all of Haven is covered in a soft blanket of snow. Snipes and monsters alike are in the holiday spirit and the Haven Arcade is being visited by Impostoclaus! Forum Post

Gameplay

Many monsters wear festive hats which have no effects on combat abilities.

Arcade

Chilly, slushy, and rather dangerous Mysterious Rooms show up in arcade Clockwork Tunnels. The player must make a choice between left or right paths, fighting their way through traps and hoards of freeze-themed monsters to the back of the room, which is filled with 36 Grinchlin Treasure Boxes. These contain Token-Frozen Winterfest Wishlist.png Frozen Winterfest Wishlist tokens, unlike the boxes in Interface-icon-PvE.png Dangerous Mission: Grinchlin Assault!. Deeper depths yield more tokens.
