• Day of Dragon Love is a rare opportunity to lay your weapons aside, forget about battle and conflict and simply enjoy life with your loved ones.
When the year draws to an end, Tartu is visited by Grandfather Frostmir who brings joy, laughter and festive mood to every house. Frostmir's task is vast: delivering presents to every man, woman and child in Adan. No one can do it alone, so he call his friends for help! While Frostie the Dragon flies over Adan, making a list of its inhabitants, the beautiful Snowflake, Mistress of Lairycawns, looks after her clumsy helpers as they create presents and decorations for the holiday.
It's hard to believe, but even such a great guy as Grandfather Frostmir has enemies! The disgruntled golem Trug the Ice Breath had a terrible run-in with Frostmir and ever since then attempts to spoil the fun for everybody. Seeing how many people support Frostmir, Trug has created an army of his own. Ugly Durgs follow their evil master's every order, ready to do anything at his behest. For the celebrations to take place, warriors of Adan will have to unite against the mighty Trug and his army of ice creatures.
Snowflake needs your help! Trug the Ice Breath, once a friend and now an archnemesis of Frostmir, is attemtping to ruin Christmas for everyone! Trug's mindless servants, the ice Durgs, have broken into warehouses of Sadar and Vaalor and stolen the holiday decorations! They didn't even spare the main Christmas Tree on Winery Crossroads!
If you don't do anything about it, holiday's as good as canceled. Frostie the Dragon won't add people to his list whose houses and holiday trees aren't decorated, and that means no presents for them from Grandfather Frostmir! And what is a Christmas without presents?
Fortunately, the thieves are overconfident, walking around Tartu openly and proud of themselves, scaring common folk as if the foul robbery wasn't enough. Our brave warriors should punish the Durgs for this insolence and return the stolen decorations to their rightful owners.
For the celebrations to take place, warriors of Adan have to return 370 000 Crystal Garlands , Sparkling Tinsel and Christmas Tree Baubles.
After you learn about Chritstmas celebrations in Adan during the Happy Holidays Quest, you will receive an Amber Hood of Snows.
Complete the recurring Christmas Decorations Quest to receive Gifts from Snowflake that contain super special Christmas Consumables with all kinds of awesome effects.
Warriors who collect 1000 Decorations and complete the Gift for the Savior of Holiday Quest will earn Snowflake's blessing and receive a Cuirass of Snow Warrior (for players of levels 10-39) or Snow Conqueror (for players of level 40+). 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 Snowflake is sad and alarmed again... Grandfather Frostmir 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 Frostmir 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 Snowflake.
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 Frostmir 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 Frostmir 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 Frostmir - 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.
New Year’s Sale
After New Year’s adventures have come to an end, Dairin the merchant will be dressed as Grandfather Frostmir and open for business at the Winery Crossroads!

Apart from the goods which the merchant sells himself, you can also use the gift interface to find three special items: the modest gift, the elegant gift, and the desired gift. Find them by pressing the Gifts button in the main menu.
When you give gifts to your friends, you are not just reminded of your own good feelings, you are also doing a good deed. New things don’t just appear on the gift interface, but also in the backpacks of your friends, such that they can fish money or other very valuable things out of gift boxes.
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

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
As the Night of the Great Dragons draws nigh, Maritar the Black Heart leaves his abode in the Halls of Peace and comes to 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.
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.

Legend of Valentar and Ailynea
Behind this romantic holiday is a tragic story of love which unfolded in the ancient times, during the First Great War against Shaab. Water Dragoness Ailynea was ambushed and enslaved by Shaab's allies, the Tangors. Becoming an obedient puppet of the Dark Gods, Ailynea was forced to fight her own kin. By a cruel twist of fate, she faced her beloved Air Dragon Valentar in her first battle. No matter how hard he tried, Valentar couldn't break the charms that imprisoned Ailynea.
Unable to harm his only love, Valentar stopped fighting and fell, struck down by the Dragoness, into a Volcano called Falarius. As he drowned in lava, his words and pleas finally got through the spell that possessed Ailynea. Fragments of memories flashed before her eyes as she fought the evil magic. Finally, the Tangor spell broke, and Ailynea was free once again. But as she realized that her beloved fell by her own hand, she couldn't bear the grief and dove into the same volcano to share Valentar's faith.
They say that ever since that day, with each dawn above the Falarius comes with a mysterious fog that takes the shape of two Dragons that stayed true to each other until their last breath.
