As with all Yule Ball social gala events, this year's event will take place in the custom Ice Palace. This special palace and area is only open one time a year for this remarkable event! You won't want to miss it! A warp will be available in Payon to take you to the Ice Palace. This warp will be open during the Yule Ball hours on Sunday, Feb. 18.
With formal wear especially crafted for each guest, plus Yule Concierge available to customize your look, formal wear dyes, and much more - you'll start the night off right looking your very best in a special Tuxedo or Evening Gown! Prizes and minigames will be rolling all throughout the evening as well, with a friendly team of Game Masters on hand to party the evening away together while hosting some fantastically fun games! Get to know your fellow Talonians at the Yule Ball this year as well - whether its out on the dance floor busting a move to our live DJ with music chosen by players, social corners with benches, fountains, and more, or up at the Ice Bar enjoying one of this year's custom cocktails! Finally, the end of the night will be complete with the crowning of this year's 2018 Yule King and Yule Queen - marking the end of the winter season and ready to welcome spring!
Each guest upon arrival will receive their own limited edition Winter Formal Wear - especially made for the Yule Ball. This costume item will disappear at the end of the Yule Ball, but it will allow each guest to wear their holiday best for the evening's gala. Once inside, guests may visit with our team of Yule Stylists - now in a special room off of the Ice Palace - to get ready and dress their best with custom looks and formal wear dyes - to complete your winter ball look. We'll have a special concierge member back in Payon who can help take back your tuxedo or dress and get you back into your regular outfit.
Our Yule Ball Concierge will be on hand to take care of our guests and their needs - including allowing you admission into the exclusive Yule Ball grand ballroom itself. Our concierge will also be recording the guest list for the evening - which is important because we'll be giving *random prizes* to guests throughout the night! That's right - just show up and you could win something fun just for coming to the Yule Ball!
Once inside, we have a party unlike anything that you've experienced. We'll be DJ'ing this event with a LIVE STREAMING PLAYLIST! Even better, you can request the songs that you would like to hear ahead of time. We'll be broadcasting these songs on our own special TalonRO Radio as well, so you can connect to the radio at the time of the event and get your groove on out on the dance floor.
Our wonderful team of Game Masters will be on hand to host live events throughout the evening, including drawing names for prizes given out to lucky random partygoers!
Our Ice Palace also features a special social corner with benches, an ice fountain, and places to sit and relax. Warm up by the fire with friends and guildmates, or head up to our ultra deluxe Ice Bar. Our Yule Bartender will be serving up holiday-themed drinks, Hot Cocoa, and some other fun drinks that will surely create some interesting...err...effects!
At the end of the evening, we'll be crowning our Yule Ball King and Queen by using the guest list at the Concierge. Our drawing will be at random - but you could win a deluxe Winter Crown costume set at the end of the night - perfect for the end of the winter season. Don't forget to stick around for our group community photo to commemorate the evening as part of the TalonRO community!
