    Midwinter Festival Event

    The days grow short, a chill is in the air, and warm fires glow in our homes. The Midwinter Festival has come once again to the Realms! Visit the festival grounds to take part in the festivities and challenges.

    • Two new repeatable quests are now available to level 50 characters for the duration of the event:
      • Visit the Festival Steward in each realm's relic town to obtain the repeatable '[Midwinter] [Daily] Swamp Goodies' quest!
      • Visit your realm's Cargomaster at the Caer Benowyc, Bledmeer Faste, or Druim Ligen docks to obtain the repeatable '[Midwinter] Roll On' quest!
      • Bounty points await those who can complete their tasks!

    Olibar, the Midwinter Tomte, will be paying frequent visits to Castle Sauvage, Svasud Faste, and Druim Ligen seeking assistance. He seems to have lost some Midwinter presents throughout the battlegrounds. Speak to him if you wish to assist him. Players on Gaheris between the levels of 35 to 49 can speak to him to receive a special Frontier Gift Retrieval quest instead.

    • Olibar's Gift Retrieval quests can now be done a total of 40 times per character, per year.
    Santa Nicholas, Lucia of the Light, and Jack Frost will arrive with gifts for the people of the realms, but there’s been a bit of a crisis: their presents were hijacked and are now in the possession of dangerous enemies.  They will offer the Saving Midwinter quest to all adventurers level 48 and above. Save Midwinter and earn a new Frozen Cloak of Midwinter and a Frozen Medal of Honor! Visit them at the Winter Villages outside of Ludlow, Ardee, and Vasudheim.

    In Albion, Clara sets up a giant tree at the festival tents. Speak with her for information on obtaining an appropriately-sized one for your own home or yard. Nearby, Sister Samantha is collecting toys for the children of Albion. She offers some fine holiday greenery as a reward to those generous souls who answer her call.

    In Midgard, Kevin somehow manages to decorate a tree all for himself. Ask him about it and he may give you a few pointers regarding your own arboreal home decorating. The Gythja of Frigg is taking donations of toys from passers-by and granting them wreaths and garlands in return.

    In Hibernia, the rather small elf Noelle brings her tree to the festival grounds. She will help you start your own holiday tradition if you want one of your own. Matron Elleweh is looking for assistance in gathering gifts for the children of Hibernia, with a promise of some festive decorations in return.

    The Trinkets for Tots quest is available for all levels.

    The Midwinter Tree quests start at level 35, however rumor has it that there may be a more advanced challenge to follow for those of level 48 and up.

    Frozen Cavern Event

    • Venture to the Frozen Cavern and test yourself against the chill... and its cunning inhabitant: Jack Frost!
    • Visit Njord in the following locations to enter the instance of your choice:
      • Albion: near Merlin's Tower in Camelot
      • Midgard: near the Burial Grounds in Jordheim
      • Hibernia: near the Chamber of Magic in Tir na Nog
    • Two modes exist for this instance: Normal and Challenging
      • The Normal mode has a chance to drop 1 of the following rewards:
        • Frozen chestpieces
        • Frozen and other mythirians
        • Infernal sleeves
        • Darkness Falls jewelry
        • Supremacy, celerity, or omni-regen potions
      • The Challenging mode has a chance to drop 1 of the following rewards:
        • Frozen weapons
        • Frozen chestpieces
        • Frozen mythirians only
        • Darkness Falls jewelry
        • Supremacy, celerity, or omni-regen potions
        • In addition to having a chance at the weapons, the chance at the mythirians and darkness falls jewelry is much higher. The chestpiece chance is the same in both modes.
    • Loot no longer drops directly from Jack Frost, instead a loot chest is spawned when he is defeated.
      • Players can interact with the chest and receive 1 guaranteed reward per day but can still participate in the instance as many times as desired.
      • This chest will despawn after 20 seconds, so be sure to grab your loot quickly!
      • Only non-trial accounts can interact with the chest.
