This year we also have a new event for everyone in addition to our Christmas Questline!
When you are killing creatures, there is a chance of dropping a Christmas Portal, by entering the portal you are sent to a North Polified alternate reality of your current location. When you join a Christmas Event, you will enter as either Santa or the Grinch! As Santa, you will save the presents, as the Grinch, you will destroy them! Regardless of Santa or Grinch, you will have 30 seconds to find as many hidden presents, gifts and christmas themed items as possible! Based on the amount of things you find, you will be rewarded Christmas Tokens!
Additionally, Dungeons AND Quests will all have an additional drop for the Christmas Season! Dungeon boxes will now also drop 2 candy canes (+5 energy when eaten) AND a christmas token this Christmas Season!
Christmas Tokens can be turned in at the North Pole for free Christmas Presents!
Additionally, you can also obtain Large Christmas Presents for Coins in the Archlight Store during the Christmas Event, while they have the exact same drop chance as Christmas Presents, they will give 2 rewards instead of 1. The color of the present does not change the rewards.
Christmas Present rewards can also all be rewrapped if you do not like the reward! If you don't like a reward you get, you can simply take it to the Johnny the Wrapper and sell it for wrapping paper, to wrap a new present to open!
This year there will be several new Christmas Items available, however also many Christmassy Classics! None of these cosmetics yield their previous passive bonuses on Abaldar, so if you are not interested in the cosmetic itself, they can be rewrapped for a hefty amount of new presents!
Some items have also had their rarity changed from last Christmas Event (Such as Santa Hat now being Rare instead of Very Rare).
