Fun in the Snow


The snow has fallen through the night, covering Taborea in a soft blanket that sparkles in the rays of the rising sun. Children waking to this piping cold rush out into the deep, cold fleece with peals of laughter to join the great snowball fight. But their good-natured missiles occasionally go astray, hitting monsters who lash out furiously and prime themselves to attack.
Can you protect the children? Earn yourself a boost event in reward!
Between December 16th at 09:00 server local time and December 25th at 23:55 server local time you will gain +100% Experience from quests and mobs, +250% talent points from mobs, and a +100% boost in drop rates.
Between December 26th at 00:00 server local time and January 1st, 2017 at 23:59 server local time you will gain + 200% Experience from quests and mobs, +500% talent points from mobs, and a +200% boost in drop rates.
Please note that between the two phases of the boost event, there will be a few minutes when no boost is active.

While Taborea glitters under the cold mantle of winter, the people are busy preparing delicious feasts and sharpening their weapons. Meanwhile, what with the Snowflake Festival and New Year’s celebrations, even the most ferocious monsters are getting into the festive spirit. In fact, they’re carrying presents with them that any valiant adventurer can “liberate”… assuming they have the guts to take them by force. If you’re not afraid of diving into the thick of battle, don’t let this opportunity slip away. Defeat the bosses in the three instances listed below and grab the gifts they’re carrying with them – only between 00:00 on 19/12/2016 and 23:59 on 01/01/2017 !
Some monsters in the following instances will reward their vanquishers with extra items – but only on normal and hard difficulties:
  • Bone Peak
  • Madro Troll Nest
  • Vale of Rites
Please note that each monster only carries one gift with them, irrespective of the number of party members involved in the fight.
