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.

Prestige

Mission-Save Winterfest!.png

"Save Winterfest" is a prestige mission where players must help Impostoclaus by carrying presents to gremlin children in the back alley of Emberlight. Winter Wish tokens are gathered in this mission.

Mission-Grinchlin Assault!.png

"Grinchlin Assault" is a prestige mission where players attack Grinchlin footholds on Mount Krampus. Materials for crafting Winterfest-related gear at the Mysterious Alchemy Machine drop from Treasure Boxes in this mission.

Rewards and Prizes

There are many different kinds of items available during this event. Winter-festive costumes, usables, furniture, gear, and general cheer are in abundance. How can players obtain these seasonal items?

Using materials gathered from the "Grinchlin Assault" mission, players can craft various Winterfest-related gear at the Mysterious Alchemy Machine.

Special prizes drop in this mission too, namely the Humbug Hat costume and key components for the Grand Solstice Ring trinket.

Players can earn Winter Wish tokens from the "Save Winterfest" mission and exchange them for various prizes with Randolph.

Players can also purchase Usable-Decoration Kit Prize Box icon.png Decoration Kit Prize Boxes from the Supply Depot.

Token Exchange

A devilite named Randolph sells Santy Hat costumes (all of which expire), Prize Boxes, Striped Scarves, and other festive items in exchange for Winter Wish tokens or Krogmo Coins.

Notes

Haven will be winter-themed during this event. The music in Haven is also changed to more festive tunes.

Most NPCs will wear festive hats for the duration of the event.

Calendar

Winterfest has happened several times. Below is a calendar for each occurrence of this event. Items made at the Mysterious Alchemy Machine can be crafted at any time, so long as the player has the required components in their inventory.
