Cradle spins through darkness! The Core glows at the center, hot and distant! But on the surface, Cradle is blanketed in the icy grip of winter
. Which means the grandeur of snow
. And also, presents
Presents! Because snow. Because Winterfest. Happy Winterfest, everyone!
Yes! It is the time of year when Impostoclaus appears in the Haven Town Square, dispensing presents (OR ARE THEY?) (yes, they are!) and also cheer
, which is less quantifiable than presents.
Available with Winterfest, from now through January 3rd, we have a new Mission, a new Lockdown map, unique seasonal decorations, and all kinds of prizes!
Mission: Save Winterfest![/b]
Alert the pundits! For there is a War on Winterfest.
The gremlin town of Emberlight is under siege by an appropriately named faction of gremlins, the ‘grinchlins’, who want to actually steal presents from the town’s orphans. And destroy Impostoclaus. Because they hate freedom.
This is a limited-time prestige mission – it’s up to YOU to save Emberlight and help deliver the presents whilst battling your way through a grinchlin-infested back alley. This unique mission has Knights guarding presents against would-be thieves while racing to defend Impostoclaus himself from attack!
New Lockdown Map: Avenue[/b]
Battle through a snowy arena with traditional weapons of the Winter Knight – snowballs and swords – find secret paths to your objective, and have a jolly good time as you battle for supremacy of a bleak & frozen cityscape!
From now through January 3rd, select energy purchases receive a FREE Winterfest Prize Box and Frosty Prize Box – these boxes are unlocked and contain a variety of possible prizes, including Guild Hall furnishing and the elusive Impostoclaus Outfit!

More Presents! More Prizes! More WINTER![/b]
