Most of this concerns balancing the instances and doing detailed test runs to make sure that everything works correctly. Rest assured that our target release date will be this month! All rankings for GM Challenge, Wave Challenge and Ancient Tower have been reset. Due to some of the top scores having been achieved on older or buggy versions of these instances, it was due for a reset to give everyone an equal playing ground.

Christmas Event Slightly boosted the droprates of giftbox pieces in the mob grinding map. Fixed Elf Doctor not healing you properly when you are wearing a GTB carded shield.

    Bababoowee's Roast Beef - TalonRO 2020 Holiday Cooking Contest Storyline: After a few boozy cocktails on Christmas Eve with friends, we decided to go level at a dungeon. After a few hours of leveling, we started to hear our tummies grumbling. We got hangry. We got tired and weaker, I fell and started tumbling. I tumbled into a Majoruros and thought to myself, “He’s looking really yummy”. Maybe the Majoruros can go into my tummy?!?! While I was spacing out, my friends above yelled “BLAHBLAHBLAWOOWEE, INCOMING!” The Majoruros was headed straight to me with his huge hammer ready to strike at me. Without hesitation, I took my wrench from my pocket and I whacked at him. How dare he!? But I also stood there and thought to myself “damn, I just killed a beast” Well, that’s too bad, it’s time for a big feast. Ingredients for Roast Beef 1 Roughly 7-pound prime rib, bone in. This would feed at least 7-8 people. *I asked the butcher to cut off the bones, stuff it with some garlic, and tie the bones back on. I prefer to have the bone in because I find this to be more flavorful and the bone acts like a rack, so it cooks the meat evenly. 2-3 carrots chopped into medium-large chunks. 1 ½ tablespoon flakey sea salt 1 ½ tablespoon freshly ground pepper ½ paprika ½ garlic powder ½ onion powder 3-4 tablespoon of olive oil 1 onion Instructions Step 1: season the prime rib a day beforehand. Mix the salt and pepper and rub it all over the meat. Place in a deep baking dish. Return the beef back to the fridge, uncovered to draw out excess moisture. Step 2: It is important to have your beef at room temperature before cooking it. Since this is a pretty big cut of beef, I would suggest taking it out of the fridge and letting it rest for at least 5 hours. If you don’t do this, the meat will not cook evenly. Step 3: Chop your carrots into medium-large chunks. Not too small that they will burn in the oven. You can also save a few pieces to roast later; along with some veggies. Drizzle some olive oil on and sprinkle some salt, pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, and paprika. Mix well. Place these aside. Step 4: After the meat rested for ~5 hours, preheat the oven at 455F. You can put the chopped carrots into the tray with the beef. Step 5: After the oven is ready, place the beef into the middle rack and bake at 455F for 15 minutes to get a nice golden sear. Step 6: After the 15 minutes, reduce the oven temperature down to 325F to cook for around 2 hours. Cooking at a lower temperature guarantees an evenly cooked roast that is sealed with juiciness. My family and friends prefer their beef medium rare. I highly suggest using a cooking thermometer. Step 7: Once you’re done with baking the meat, you can insert the thermometer. I pull it out when it is around 130F because the meat will continue to cook after you remove it from the oven. Step 8: Please remember to allow the meat to rest for at least 20 minutes. Ingredients for Au jus: Drippings from the roast Onions from the roast 1 cup of red wine Salt and pepper to taste 2-3 tablespoons of flour or cornstarch Instructions: Step 1: Pour in the beef stock over medium-high heat. Add in the red wine, drippings, and onions from the roast and boil for 15 minutes. Strain with strainer. Step 2: Add in flour or cornstarch to thicken. Turn off stove and stir. Ingredients for corn: 3 cups of frozen corn 4 tablespoons of butter (can be unsalted or salted) Instructions: Step 1: Put frozen corn in a pan over medium high heat. Step 2: Add in the butter and stir for 5 minutes. Sprinkle some pepper and salt to taste. Serve with the prime rib. Ingredients for Yorkshire pudding ¾ cup of Flour 100ml Almond milk Olive oil Salt and pepper Instructions: Step 1: preheat oven to 425F. Step 2: Pour a teaspoon of olive oil in each muffin tray compartment and place the tray into the oven to heat up. Step 3: Beat eggs, almond milk, flour, and a tiny pinch of salt and pepper. Beat until well combined. Pour mixture into a jar. Step 4: Remove tray with oven mitts carefully and quickly pour in the mixture into the muffin tray. Step 5: Shove muffin tray back into the oven and bake for 13 – 15 minutes. Should look like this when done. Assemble your dish. Final Product: I also forgot to take a picture of my ign the night before. So I had to use leftovers the next morning to take another picture! Hope this is okay! GM Challenges: GM Ktulu – wine au jus GM Blackstar – decorated with corn, carrots, and Yorkshire pudding.

    The Winter Scarf Quest returns to TalonRO! This immensely popular event gives you the opportunity to make your own fashionable scarf for the winter months. Once again, the great roaming master tailor, Von Claude, has settled in the city of Hugel. He has been particularly inspired by the newest animated fashions and also vibrant varieties of costumes that are cropping up lately. "2021's fashion forward crowd will really love what I have in store this season" Von Claude was recently heard sharing with a team of Kafra Agents. Coveted all over Rune-Midgard, the designs of Von Claude are unequaled in their elegance and functionality. His friend, Olgov, has been working on creating fields of inspirations for Von Claude's next winter collection. As his scarves are in high demand, Von Claude requires only the finest ingredients for his masterful creations. However, the work is worth it - the Winter Collection from Von Claude is without equal. His collection of scarves include the return of the Traditional Striped Scarf - a classic Midgardian favorite - and Straight Scarves, which were in popular demand! Von Claude x Olgov designs have brought back the 2016 smash hit, the Waving Long Scarf. 2021's latest creation follows last year's Nekomimi Cape! While Von Claude has not added any new styles and colours to his collection this year, his existing collection is without compare! Featured in distinct, fashion-forward choices, these scarves will turn the average novice into a haute couture wonder! Because of the demand for these high-quality items, these costumes will not be easy to make. After all, Von Claude x Olgov wouldn't want to skimp on the quality, right? Just like winter itself, this quest won't last long! This quest will be available through the winter months. We hope that you enjoy the Winter Scarf Quest this year! The Winter Quest ends on Wednesday, March 21st! Be sure to make your scarves and find the look that's right for you! Happy gaming and good luck!

    We have an amazing community on TalonRo, and when I think of good times spent with friends here, I’m lucky enough to have a few great memories to choose from. This has been a sad year for a lot of us though, a year of unexpected goodbyes. I just couldn’t find it in myself to make something silly like I usually do. I took the challenge to find something comforting though to heart, and my hope is that as you all continue forward in your own lives this year, you find a plethora of reasons to keep your feet moving forward and reasons to smile. I wrote my story, and chose to create this recipe in honor of my first two friends on Talon. It’s a well wishes of sorts, and also an acknowledgement that we are no longer a daily part of each other's lives. I know this is something most of you have faced, as friendships forged online tend to be transient in nature, with those lucky few hanging around for the long haul. So Remi and Sevi, this one’s for you. I carry you forward in my heart, always.

    Greetings to you all citizens of Midgard! With the cozy chills of the Holiday season, we're pleased to open this year's Holiday Cook Off! What a rough year right? So nothing better to make it happier with a bit of Holiday Cooking. We want to see those recipes that bring a smile to your face and remind you of good times you spend with friends and family during this time of year. We would absolutely love to see some traditional recipes with a TalonRO spin to them! This will test your creativity with both cooking and story telling! 🍪 Create story that does not exceed 1,500 words, let your creativity flow through you! 🥛 The dish will need to be TalonRO / RO related. Not just any dish and giving it a Ragnarok name. There must be a clear TalonRO / RO theme and explanation is a must if the connection is not obvious. 🍪 Make sure to write down and take pictures of all necessary steps that you have done as well as the ingredients that you have used to achieve your award winning dish! 🥛 If you are baking, make sure to include the Celsius or Farenheit 🍪 Make sure to include your IGN somewhere in the photograph of your dish so that we'll confirm that you made it. 🥛 Name your creation! 🍪 You must absolutely include a final picture. 🥛 Last and not least, make sure YOU HANDCRAFT your recipe. Online recipes or choices can inspire you, but make sure you post the entire recipe you've used and make it RO-themed somehow. January 20th 2021 00:01 Server time Luna's Angeling Beef & Onion Pie with mash potatoes and mixed vegetables May the blessing of the Divine Poring king be with you, young adventurers, you who wish to reach the summit may this pie bring you warmth and strength needed for your journey. Story Time Hide contents On the outskirts of Kamidal Mountain, the snowfall is harsh, and the howling winds will cut through the strongest of steel, those who venture into the unknown unprepared will meet an unforgivable fate. *** It has been three years since that encounter, unforgettable day, Sakura and I were rescued from a cluster Dolomedes. We decided one day to adventure into the mountains around El Dicastes, we heard stories of beautiful gems found upon the mountains and with Christmas closing in we thought that these would make lovely gifts. We didn't expect the storm would rage this much, and then we felt it, vibrations coming from the ground, something ... something was coming towards us, but we couldn't see through the blizzard, in the distance we could see glowing light moving against the white snow. Sakura: " Captain, run!" Captain: "No, I won't leave you behind." At that moment, I thought that it couldn't end like this; they are waiting for us, our family, and our friends. Then I saw it this fiery light dancing in the distance, and something told me to run towards it. Run. Run. RUN I told myself, get up and RUN. "Sakura, give me your hand." We ran toward that warm light, and there she stood, a young girl with silver hair and what I could see a fiery scarf around her neck, what was a young girl doing out in the middle of nowhere and by herself and why was she starring at the sky like that and the storm didn't affect her. I shouted out "Can you help us, please, they are coming for us". Our eyes met, blood-red eyes looking right through my soul, she pointed at the sky, and a giant fiery bird appeared from the sky and hovered above us, it spread its wings, and the snow melted behind the mountain cliff, and a hut appeared and there stood another young girl who looked like a Valkyrie. At this moment the monsters caught up to us, but they dare not move any further, baring their fangs at us. "Seasons greetings, Adventures. Do not fear. They dare not come any closer. You look hungry, why don't I show you how to make my Angeling Pie?" How to make Angeling Pie Hide contents Preparing the pastry – shortcrust pastry If you have the time you can prepare the pastry the night before. If you are short on time you will need to make the pastry 1hr before cooking and let it set in the fridge. I will be making two batches of pastry one for the bottom of and one for the top & decorations. The below measure reflects this. Plain flour 440g Unsalted Butter 300g 4-6 tsp of cold water or milk 2 teaspoons of Salt · Shift 220g plain flour & 150g unsalted butter into mixing bowl and rub together with the tips of your fingers until it resembles breadcrumb texture. It is important not to mix it with your hands as we do not want the butter to melt quickly. Note: If you have a food processor you can use this as well but when mixing everything together make sure you pulse (short bursts) the mix and not a continuous mix. Once the mixture has turned into fine breadcrumbs first add 1tsp of water or milk and mix, then add another teaspoon. Normally 2 tsp will be enough. but if you feel your mixture is little dry then add another teaspoon. Sprinkle some flour on surface and wrap your pastry in cling film and place into fridge. 15min before cooking take your pastry out of the fridge. Beef and Onion filling 1 beef stockpot 1 veg stockpot 2 tablespoons of Worchester Sauce 1 tablespoon of Virgin olive oil 1 large onion 2 teaspoons of pepper 2 teaspoons of salt 100g beef 500ml hot water 1 egg · (Personal preferences) put the beef pieces in a strainer and hold it under cold water to get rid of any excess blood from the packaging and then place in a bowl. Turn the stove on medium heat and add olive oil into a pot. While waiting for the oil to heat go ahead and start chopping your onion. Once the pot is heated add the onion in, stir for a bit until soft but not brown then add in the beef. Add in salt and pepper Cook until the beef is little brown on the outside, turn them once in while so that it does not stick to the bottom of the pan. While the beef is cooking you can make your stock. In a measuring glass add the beef and veg stock and then add 500ml of hot water and stir. Once the beef has browned add in the stock and let it simmer for few mins. Then transfer into slow cooker and cook for two hours, if you do not have a slower cooker you can leave on the stove on a low heat. This is to help tenderise the beef and bring the flavours together. 2 hours later Prepare the Mash Potatoes Peel and cut the potatoes then place in a bowl of cold water so they do not dry out. Cut into piece so they do not take too long to soften. Blind Baking the pastry We do this so the bottom of the pie is not wet and the sauce doesn’t soak through. Coat your baking dish with butter and take one half of the pastry and place into your baking dish, with a glass or spoon carefully mold the pastry to the shape of the dish. Place some cling film in the pastry bowl and fill with 1 or 2 small cups of rice or clay beans then seal the top of the cling film. Place in the oven at 190c for 10 minutes and then take the rice bag out of the dish, return to oven, and leave for another 5mintues for the bottom of the pastry to turn brown. Once done take out of the oven and place to one side. Making mash potatoes In a pot add hot water and bring to boil. Drain away the cold water from the potatoes and add to the hot water. Wait 15 to 20 minutes and poke a potato piece to see if it is soft. (while waiting you can start preparing the top part of the pie) Once soft drain away water and add in 2 tablespoons of butter and a pinch of salt and mix. Note: you can use milk or cream as well. With a potato masher (or a fork) mash potatoes pieces until they become fluffy, I personally like my mash potatoes to have small potatoes bits inside. Top part of the pie & the filling (this can be done while you are waiting for the potatoes to boil) Roll out the second part of your pastry on to a flat surface dusted with some flour and cut in half, one part will be used for the top layer and the other will be used to decorate the pie. Place to one side. Add the beef and onion to the pie dish add a little bit of the stock so the pie is not dry on the instead. Break the egg into a small bowl and beat with a pastry brush line the outer part of the dish with egg and then place the flat pastry on top and with a small knife cut any excess pastry away. With a fork gently press the sides down to steal the bottom and top together. Coat the top part of with some egg. With the left-over pastry start to create your decoration, use a small knife to help shape each piece. Note: The oven dish I used is 17cm, the decoration on top ended up being little big so I needed to cut a lot away to get it to fit on top of the pie. Coat the top of the pie with egg and it is ready to go into the oven for 25 – 30min at 220c Do not forget to make a few slits on the pie so it can breathe while cooking. Once the potatoes are done you can go ahead and boil the veg, which takes 3min Then plate up and serve, this dish feed 2 people but you could probably feed 3 depending on the portions Then serve everything on to a plate Few notes after taking my first bite: I made the decoration pastry little too thick, make sure decoration at the top is thin. Also, felt I could have chopped the beef in half again to get more meat with each bite. My sauce didn’t end up being as thick as I wanted it to be, if you want a thicker sauce before placing the diced beef into the pot coat them in some flour mixed with salt and pepper. 🍪 Top three winners Loyal BonusWhen summoned,Increases duration of Stat foods by 50%. 🍪 20 Talon Coins 🥛 1 Monthly Costume Box 🍪 1 Lv. 10 Cookbook 🥛 1 Fantastic Cooking Kit 🍪 4th place: 🥛 20 Talon Coins 🍪 1 Monthly Costume Box 🍪 5th place: 🥛 15 Talon Coins 🍪 1 Monthly Costume Box 🍪 Participation Prize 🥛 1 Lv. 10 Food Bundle.

All items received will be account-bound, but you can use the Vending Machine NPC in Lutie to claim the Costume and Pet on as many characters as you like.

    To start off, this year's event will largely be similar to the one we've hosted last year due to the time we have to spend on the SQI Revamp. The storyline about missing Santa Claus and the loss of Christmas Spirit is identical to last year. That said, we did fix a large variety of bugs, made improvements and introduced new quests and rewards! It's that time of the year again! This year, our special Christmas Warper isn't warping anyone to the Enchanted Village! It turns out she has lost her Christmas Spirit due to Santa Claus having gone missing! However, help may be nearby! Once inside, embark on a new quest by talking to Scrooge! As usual, you can enjoy the various games and earn wonderful Christmas Giftboxes by collecting Red and Green Giftbox Pieces. The Christmas Giftboxes have been updated with some wonderful rewards to check out! You can also enjoy some of the annual highlights, such as letter writing, Antonia's Caroling, stocking hanging, and much more (with full details below!). We hope that you'll explore around the Enchanted Village this year and enjoy all that the season has to offer! This year in the Enchanted Village, as mentioned earlier, Santa has undergone a curse by none other than Antonio himself utilizing his, while fake, powerful Heart of Ymir. It's up to you and the rest of the server to build up Christmas of Spirit points by playing the various activities and content available to you to help free Santa of the curse. You can start this year's main quest by first talking to Scrooge. This year's Giftboxes will grant wonderful items - and you can make your own through a variety of games and challenges. Just like last year, minigames may grant you Snowflake Coins in addition to the Giftbox Pieces, as well as special Marbles. These snowflakes can be used at the vending machine in the Enchanted Village to purchase special rental weapons as well as a lovely variety of costumes and classic holiday pets. Marbles are used for the special minigame Santa's Marbles, which is explained in greater detail in the Christmas Events section below. Moreover, you'll need to use these special items to fill your stockings - but you'll be able to earn these through a number of methods - making it possible to collect wonderful items in a great combination of ways! Finally, you'll only be able to obtain certain kinds of Giftbox Pieces through specific games. These Giftbox Pieces are account bound, so you'll need to earn them all individually. Once you do however, you'll be able to give them to Santa, who will reward your hard work with some very special prizes this year. On top of that, you'll be able to earn and do lots more in the Enchanted Village, such as letter writing, caroling, and so much more! How to Participate in This Year's Event Collect Red and Green Giftbox Pieces in order to trade them in and craft your own Christmas Giftboxes! Earn Giftbox Pieces by participating in various minigames, farming and events throughout the Enchanted Village. Each Christmas Giftbox will grant wonderful new items this year! Giftbox Pieces are account bound, so be certain to earn them within a single account to maximize your Christmas Giftbox collection! Most items that come out of the box however, are not bound. Minigames may also grant both Snowflake Coins and Marbles this year as well. Snowflake Coins can be used at the vending machine NPC in the Enchanted Village. You will be able to trade these in for special rental weapons, costumes, and pets! Both Snowflake Coins and Marbles have different purposes: Use Snowflake Coins at both the vending machine NPC in the Enchanted Village, as well as within the Stocking Hanging event in Santa's House. Snowflake coins can be earned both through minigames and also in special Christmas monster maps tied to this year's event. They can also be used in a variety of new quests! Use Marbles to participate in the Santa's Marbles event, by talking to Santa in the Enchanted Village once he has returned. Marbles come from minigames at a low percentage chance. You can also earn great prizes this year through other fun methods, which are listed below in greater detail. These methods include: Antonia's Caroling - where you can earn Snowflake Coins and other useful goodies. Stocking Hanging - fill up your stockings this year in Santa's House in the Enchanted Village and earn something wonderful the very next day. Santa's Marbles - spell out special holiday sayings with various Marble letters to earn some extraordinary prizes! Some minigames will drop Marbles with letters ranging from A-M, while others will grant letters N-Z. Spell out one of Santa's Christmas sayings with these Marbles to earn something really special! Headgear and Pet Quests: Gemma's Quest Enchantress Quest Elf Quest Are you ready to confront Antonio once more? The Christmas Instance Dungeon is returning as part of this year's event! If you were unable to claim the incredible items obtainable from this instance in 2019, this is your second chance to do so! It is still one massive challenge you will not want to miss! Santa has a wonderful variety of games available for all of Midgard's boys and girls this year - including some classic delights and new twists in store! Four main events will provide you with an opportunity to earn Giftbox Pieces in order to construct your very own Christmas Giftbox. These events include the return of Blackjack / Guess the Number, Snowman Building, Amazing Ragna Race and the Christmas Time Trial! Each of these games will drop a combination of either Red or Green Giftbox Pieces. Collect both kinds of pieces to trade them in within the Enchanted Village for your very own Christmas Giftboxes this year! You'll also be able to earn prizes through other events as well. Stocking Hanging, located at Santa's House in the Enchanted Village, will allow you to receive something wonderful. Simply collect the required items for your stocking and wait a day - then check back in over the stockings by the fireplace to receive a special prize! We have also added back the farming maps on the east side of the Enchanted Village! As with the Halloween event, there are three difficulties. The harder the map, the better the loot, including Giftbox Pieces! This year also features the return of Santa's Marbles. There will be a holiday-themed word that you can attempt to spell out by collecting Marbles across various minigames. Each Marble will have a letter printed on it. If you can spell out the holiday word of the day with Marbles in your inventory, you'll receive something incredible! You can participate in this minigame by talking to Santa Claus in the Enchanted Village as well. We hope that you'll give all of this year's events and minigames inside of the Enchanted Village a try - and that you'll earn some wonderful holiday presents along the way! Explore All that Christmas Has to Offer General The Spirit of Christmas System This year due to Santa being cursed by Antonio, The Enchanted Village needs everybody in the Talon Community to help build Christmas Spirit! Every time any activity is completed, you will build up Christmas Spirit! Santa will appear again once a certain target has been reached! General World Flavor During your traveling and grinding sessions you may be greeted by some temporary Christmas mobs that do not normally spawn in the world! These monsters will drop various ingredients that are useful in the Christmas quests! These include the following monsters: Christmas Orc Christmas Jakk Christmas Goblin Santa Poring You will find several of these mobs in world locations that the normal counterparts would spawn at! Christmas Orcs will spawn in all locations Orc Warriors normally spawn at except for the High Orcs map. Christmas Jakks will spawn in all locations Jakks normally spawn at. Christmas Goblins will spawn in all locations Goblins normally spawn at. Santa Porings will spawn in all locations Porings normally spawn at. Christmas Minigames Note: All Minigames apart from Blackjack/GTN may reward you with additional Snowflake Coins and/or Marbles! Blackjack & Guess the Number returns to Christmas! Play special party-based rounds of Blackjack (now more often than before!) rotating alongside a holiday-themed Guess the Number minigame. Strike it rich for your opportunity to win Red Giftbox Pieces! Snowman Building gives you an opportunity to assemble your own special snowman. The magical snowmen of the holiday season are starting to fall apart as the magic of Christmas dwindles - and they will need your help in putting them back together again! Find the Snowman Builder in the Enchanted Village to learn more. You'll need five (5) people in total to start building. Once you have your group together, head out and start rebuilding those snowmen! If you're successful with your efforts, you'll be rewarded with some Red Giftbox Pieces as well as a chance to get Marbles marked N to Z and perhaps even something else! Xmas Time Trials inside of Antonio's Toy Factory returns to the Enchanted Village! Back in the day, Antonio used to do research in his evil toy factory. However now the toy factory is open for all! Anyone can enter now to enjoy the challenge. This is also a team minigame requiring three (3) participants: all 3 members can only stay inside for 10 minutes. If you all are unable to get out after 10 minutes, the team must abandon the mission! It may take some time to learn the best ways of completing this but don't give up! Cooperate with your partners (through #map chat for instance), and complete all the tasks in the allotted time to find a way to retrieve some Green Giftbox Pieces as well as a chance to get Marbles marked A to M and perhaps even something else! The Amazing Ragna Race Returning from Halloween, join Boone Peaches as he hosts The Amazing Ragna Race once more in his homeland, The Enchanted Village! Participate with a group of players in a race up the spiraling hill. There will be Horong Boosters to increase your speed when ran into temporarily, but watch out for those random Ankle Snares as well! You will find Item Boxes along the race track - these will greatly aid you by giving a boost or slowing everybody else down. If you're lucky, you might even swap position with another racer ahead of you or slow everybody else down! The fastest three racers to cross the finishing line on the bridge at the hilltop will be crowned as winners. This time prizes will be different in comparison to Halloween: 1st Place : 6 Green Giftbox Pieces, rare chance to gain a Factory Skeleton Key. 2nd Place: 4 Green Giftbox Pieces. 3rd Place: 2 Green Giftbox Pieces. Consolation Prize (for every participant): Random chance for Snowflake Coins, as long as you participated in the race and made enough progress! When a race ends, there will be a 5 Minute Cooldown before another race can begin. Features and Other Activities [NEW] Enchantress Quest where you help the Enchantress Lucrecia save her brother, the Geomancer, from chaos and despair. Transform your existing Stall of Angel/Dominion/Shadow Costume, your Royal Mantle/Royal Mantle Black Costume or your Protection Cloth/Protection Cloth Black Costume into festive winter themed costumes! [NEW] Elf Quest where you help two elves gather ingredients for pajamas! Gather ingredients and get a chance to obtain either some consumables or perhaps even a rare new pet and costume! Stocking Hanging is a special holiday tradition, where you are earn fantastic prizes! Located in Santa's House in the Enchanted Village, your very own stocking will be hanging over Santa's fireplace. Simply fill your stocking with a number of requested items, along with five (5) Snowflake Coins and let the magic set in! Check back in with your stocking one day later to see what's inside! Your items and coins will have transformed into something exquisite, including usable items, OPB and OBBs, hats, stat foods, and even a small chance to earn pet eggs or costumes! Note: stocking hanging contains a master account daily limit, allowing you to only create 3 stockings per day. Santa's Marbles is one of this year's most challenging, and rewarding, special minigames! This will become available to everybody once enough Christmas Spirit is built up by participating in other activities to free Santa from his curse! Collect Marbles throughout this year's events - each Marble will be inscribed with a letter upon it. A new holiday-themed word will be listed for you to try and complete with Marbles from your inventory. If you can spell out the word of the day with your Marbles, you'll be able to trade them in for some truly incredible prizes! Once a player gets a prize, the word will change to something new! Note: Marbles are all account-bound and cannot be traded - so you'll have to play a lot of minigames this year to ensure that you have a wide range of available letters to spell out the word of the day! Marbles may be obtained from any of the following minigames: Snowman Building may reward you with Marbles from letters N through Z. Time Trials may reward you with Marbles from letters A through M. Hanging your Stockings may reward you with any kind of Marble. Blackjack & Guess the Number will not furnish a chance to win any Marbles. Craft Unique Christmas Food Items You can speak to Harvey in The Enchanted Village in order to craft some unique consumables as follows: Chocolate Tart Recovers a small amount of HP. Cast Level 5 Angelus. Strawberry Chocolate Recovers a small amount of SP. Cast Level 5 Blessing. Spicy Winter Tonic Heals your HP and SP by 20%. AGI + 3, INT + 3 for 2 Minutes. Warm Heart Chocolate Heals your HP by 20%. STR + 3, VIT + 3 for 1 Minute. Enchanted Mushroom Soup Heals your HP and SP by 70%. Casts level 3 Assumptio and level 3 Impositio Manus on yourself. In order to craft the above items, you will need a select list of ingredients (more information on this by speaking to Harvey). Most of which include unique Miscellaneous Ingredients that are only obtained by Santa's Factory mobs in Intermediate and Nightmare Difficulties (further explained below). Santa's Factory All new and improved grind map for this year's Christmas borrowing a many elements from this year's popular Halloween grind map! You can access Santa's Factory after getting far enough in this year's Christmas Main Quest. If enough Christmas Spirit has been earned to free Santa, newcomers to this years event don't need to do the quest! You can expect the following 3 difficulties to choose from: Easy : Relatively approachable for just about anybody. This difficulty does not have an MvP monster roaming inside it! However, it has the lowest experience/drop rates. Ingredients for Food Items will not drop here! Intermediate : A step up from Easy, meant for the middle of the road adventurer. An MvP will spawn here! The experience and drops here are very suitable for the intended skill level. Ingredients for Food Items will drop! Nightmare : Meant for the most hardcore of adventurers. The experience and drops are excellent here and are definitely worth the time and effort. However, the monsters are very difficult and the MvP here is especially difficult. If you can, try to bring a party here! Ingredients for Food Items here are significantly higher than Intermediate! Every single day you can come here to earn up to 30 Green Giftbox Pieces! This limit will be reset the next day. The rates are significantly improved the higher you go up in difficulty for Santa's Factory, so choose the difficulty that best suits you! MvP Kills in Santa's Factory contribute a large portion of Christmas Spirit Points toward the server wide goal! Instance Dungeon Provides some incredible challenges just as it did last year, combined with some unbelievable prizes. Prepare to take on this winter's most exciting challenge yet, and to swear revenge on Antonio for what he did to Santa! Enter this year's Instance Dungeon by obtaining a Factory Skeleton Key - obtainable throughout various methods in the course of the event. Rarely by participating in minigames. Every time you kill an MvP in Santa's Factory. Other "mysterious" methods. To begin the quest for access to this year's dungeon and instance, speak with Scrooge. He will be able to tell you more about the methods needed! If enough Christmas Spirit has been earned to free Santa, newcomers to this years event don't need to do the quest! By defeating Antonio, you have a chance at earning the following unique gears, all of which contribute toward a set: In addition to all kinds of minigames and events throughout the Enchanted Village, this year's holiday treats include some additional features and festivities! Enjoy Caroling Antonia this year as part of Santa's holiday fun! She'll be exploring throughout various towns and cities in Midgard - be on the lookout for a global announcement when she is around next! As she sings and moves around town, she'll drop items - and even Snowflake Coins! - around her. Follow her to try and collect these special and festive drops. However, be careful not to stay too close for long, as Caroling Antonia may blow up at any time and knock you out! Once Antonia has blown up, there is a chance that the MVP Krampus will follow in her stead! Krampus may invade the same town/city, and defeating him may reward you with some excellent loot! Lizzie is also back to send out special Christmas Cards to your friends, guildmates, and even secret admirers! Simply speak with Lizzie in the Enchanted Village, fill out the To: and From: sections of your announcement, along with a few lines of text that you'd like her to send. Christmas Cards this year cost 50,000 Zeny to send, and must be approved by a Gamemaster before they can be sent. Once approved, speak with Lizzie again to confirm the card (when you're ready, of course!) and she will read it aloud as a special global broadcast to all of Midgard! Because these are global announcements, please ensure that your messages are appropriate and conform to TalonRO's rules before writing them, otherwise they may be declined by a Gamemaster. Finally, account bound items from this year's Christmas Event can also be claimed on any of your other game accounts which are associated with your master account! To claim a Christmas account bound item on one of your other game accounts, simply speak with the Vending Machine NPC in Lutie. Once a Christmas account bound item has been obtained, this item will be added to a list of available items at the Vending Machine NPC, allowing you to obtain a "copy" of that item that will be account bound to that new account. For example, say you had received a special Christmas costume from this year's event which is account bound. Simply log into one of your other game accounts if desired, speak with the NPC in Lutie, and you can get a copy of that item! These items will always be account bound, but will allow you to have another version unique to your account as well - allowing you to enjoy your earnings on any of your characters & accounts! Items which are eligible for this special vending machine option include costumes and pets from the Snowflake Coin machine in the Enchanted Village, as well as potential items coming from the Christmas Giftboxes this year. This year's Christmas prizes are truly special - and you'll be able to earn a variety of amazing and wonderful gifts through a number of minigames, features, and fun. This year's Christmas Giftboxes contain a new assortment of special selections, ranging from new items and costumes, as well as extra special MVP cards at a rare drop rate! Trading in Snowflake Coins will also earn you an assortment of special rental weapons, which you can use to give your character an extra boost of ho-ho-horribly good bonuses!
