In the end of each year, Tartu is visited by Grandfather Winterfrost, symbol of joy, laughter and festive mood. The task that stands before him - bringing presents to all inhabitants of Adan - is no easy one. Winterfrost can hardly do it without any help. Frostie the Dragon flies over Adan, putting together a list of all who live there, while the beautiful Terwin Cool, the Mistress of Lairycawns, commands her funny assistants, overseeing the creation of presents and decorations as well as their delivery to inhabitants of Adan.
But even such a great person as Grandfather Winterfrost has enemies. The arrogant contentious golem Trug the Ice Breath had a terrible run-in with Winterfrost and now each year he attempts to ruin the holiday for everyone. Trug isn't alone in this shameful struggle. Using magic, he created an army of durgs, servants that follow his every order, no matter what their evil master commands. For the celebrations to take place, warriors of Adan will have to make a great effort of rebuking the mighty Trug and his numerous ice army.
Terwin Cool, Granfather Winterforst's assistant, is asking for your help! Trug the Ice Breath, once an ally and now the bitterest enemy of Winterfrost, wishes to ruin Christmas for everyone. Trug's loyal servants, the durgs, broke into warehouses of Sadar and Vaalor where festive decorations were being kept and stole them all. The villains didn't even spare the main Christmas Tree on Winery Crossroads!
Holiday is under the threat of cancellation: if houses and trees of Tartu's inhabitants are not adorned properly, Frostie the Dragon won't include their names in his list and Grandfather Winterfrost won't bring any presents to them. And what is a Christmas without presents?
Sure that they can get away with what they've done, the thieves walk around Tartu openly, scaring its inhabitants. Brave warriors are needed to punish the insolent durgs and return the stolen decorations.
For the celebrations to take place, warriors of Adan have to return 370 000 Crystal Garlands , skeins of Sparkling Tinsel and Christmas Tree Baubles.
Having learned the details of how everyone's favorite holiday is celebrated in Adan from the "Happy Holidays" Quest, you will receive an Amber Hood of Snows.
For completing the recurring "Christmas Decorations" Quest , warriors will receive Gifts from Terwin Cool that contain special Christmas Consumables with various effects.
Finally, those warriors who acquire 1000 Decorations and complete the "Gift for the Savior of Holiday" Quest will earn Terwin Cool's blessing and receive a Cuirass of Snow Warrior (for players of levels 10 to 39) or Snow Conqueror (for players of level 40 and higher). New armor is notable not only for its great battle characteristics and looks, it also allows its wearer to use a special type of magic, the Popper Strike.
Thanks to the warriors of Tartu, the Christmas Tree has been dressed and is now ready for the celebrations! But Terwin Cool is sad and alarmed again... Grandfather Winterfrost put the Christmas Gifts under the tree and then something untold happened! Trug charmed Terwin's lairycawns with the Spell of Irrepressible Greed. The bewitched creatures stole Christmas presents and don't want to give them back. Luckily, the Spell of Irrepressible Greed can be easily lifted. Couple of clips - and the confused lairycawn will return the stolen Gifts.
Warriors have to acquire 150 000 Gifts so that no inhabitant of Tartu is left without one on the Christmas Night.
Granfather Winterfrost has prepared an ample number of Gifts, so the warriors of Adan will be able to continue "healing" the lairycawns from Irrepressible Greed and gathering presents even after the required number is obtained. Warriors who manage to acquire 1000 Gifts will receive Leggings of Snow Warrior or Snow Conqueror as a reward from Terwin Cool.
Consumed by envy and anger, Trug attempts to ruin the celebration once again. But now the vengeful golem understands that he cannot rely on his minions, only on himself. And if he wants something done, he should do it by his own. Trug believes his might is unmatched and has no intention of hiding. On the contrary, the golem informed Grandfather Winterfrost in advance that he is coming to steal the main Christmas Tree. This very tree symbolizes the essence of the holiday. Without it, there's not going to be one.
Grandfather Winterfrost calls upon all brave warriors to come battle Trug and prevent the monster from stealing the main Christmas Tree, thus spoiling the celebration.
If you do not wish to lose this Christmas, you will have to work hard. As strange as it sounds, but the battle with the frost giant is expected to be very... hot. Trug is enormous and his power incredible, and it takes three stages to defeat him: first the warriors will have to deal with his gigantic legs, then the mighty arms and only after that will they have a chance to get to Trug's head. Warriors who take part in all three battles will receive a generous reward from Grandfather Winterfrost - the Hood of Snow Warrior or Snow Conqueror. This elegant festive headwear will not only boost your defense and make you look good but will also allow you to use a new combat Spell - the Blizzard.
Night of the Great Dragons
This Event is available for players of level 9 and above.
Once a year, in the end of October, a dark and evil time comes when Eldior the Ruler of Life, Aeona Mother of Eternity and Velet the Lord of Death sink into a deep peaceful sleep, leaving Adan without their wise care. As soon as Velet's vigilant eyes close, spirits of the dead run wild, trying to break out of the Halls of Peace into the world of the living.
While common Imperial citizens laugh, dance and exhange gifts, Velet's Vigilant Guard, the Necromancers, work hard, protecting Tartu from hordes of spirits and ghosts. It is also a troublesome time for the Imperial soldiers who have to endure an undead invasion: vampires, succubi, skeletars and mummies form merciless armies to attack Adan.
If the sleep of the Great Dragons lasts too long, the efforts of Necromancers and warrior might not be enough, allowing the undead to take over the world of the living forever.
Quests for the Night of the Great Dragons
In order to protect the world from the undead hordes, warriors of Tartu have to assist the charming Necromancer Ani-Dahlia in performimg the Rite of Awakening that will help the Great Dragons wake up and restore order to their dominion.
To do so, you will have to complete the Necromancer's Quests that are divided into one time and recurrring .
For completing Recurring Quests and gathering Collections, players will receive Gift Pumpkins that contain characteristic-increasing holiday Candy, death-bringing Brooms and - if you're lucky enough - a Pumpkin Seed:
Gift Pumpkins can also be acquired as a trophy by brave warriors who participate in fierce Arena of Honor and Seven Bridges of Shadan battles.
Great Night Collections
One of Ani-Dahlia's quests resolves around gathering four Great Night Collections: the Succubus, Vampire, Guardian's Mummy and Dawn Skeletar. You can acquire elements of these Collections by fighting respective undead monsters that infiltrated Tartu.
|Succubi||Outskirts of Vaalor City
Village of Landor
|Vampires||Outskirts of Sadar City
Pond of Tribulation
Port of Sadar
Mines of Tagol
Having completed Ani-Dahlia's quest "Awakening Under Threat", you will be able to gather each of these Collections once. When one of the Collections is complete, its elements will no longer be dropped amongst other trophies.
By gathering the four Great Night Collections and adding a Pumpkin Seed to them, you will receive the fifth Collection, Archylantern of Awakening .
The main ritual lantern will help the Great Dragons awaken, Tartu's longest night and you will receive a Pumpkin Helm:
Maritar the Black Heart
Warriors of Tartu are doing a great job of slaying undead, lighting lanterns and scaring opponents in combat and for that Ani-Dahlia generously rewards them with Gift Pumpkins. Meanwhile Velet's Guards are preparing to perform the Rite of the Great Dragon Awakening - but it's still too early to celebrate victory. News about yet another defeat enraged Maritar the Black Heart who decided to make a desperate attempt to disrupt the sacred ritual.
He left his abode in the Halls of Peace and October 30 at 17:00 Server Time Maritar will arrive in the Western Graveyard along with his minions - vampires, succubi, mummies and skeletars - to summon a great army of the undead and destroy the Archylantern of Awakening.
If you do not wish to lose the protection of the Great Dragons and are willing to help them rise from their sleep, you will have to make a big effort. Battle with Maritar the Black Heart promises to be intense: serpentine enemy is able to summon countless hordes of undead that wield incredible strength. Maritar will stop for nothing to see the main ritual lamp - Archylantern of Awakening - destroyed.
Having beaten the villain, warriors will receive different characteristic-increasing holiday Candy as well as the Undead Exterminator - a special weapon that will make dealing with the hordes of undead much more easier.
