Winterfest Odds and Ends

Thursday, December 17, 2015 by spiralspy

It’s Winterfest again and this time we got two new event boxes available from Randolph. To get them, hunt for “Frozen Winter Winterfest Wishlist” Tokens in the Arcade. This is more or less the same as Punkin hunting: look for refurbished danger rooms in the Clockwork Tunnel type levels. Once you find one, you’ll be given a choice between two random arena rooms. Don’t waste time debating on which one to play. You’ll have to win at least 5 battles to even get the small box, so you’ll likely get to see them.

The efficient way to farm this event is to put your speedy gear on (black cat or mercurial set). Make it a team effort. Scout individually, invite your comrades when you find a lair. You should probably bring an elemental and a shadow weapon to the fight. Special trick: when calling in reinforcements, stand on the top left corner of the party button (without actually activating it) and look towards its center. This will make your teammates spawn on the button.

The treasure boxes at the end are difficulty and tier switched. On an average you should get:

Tier 1 Tier 2 Tier 3
normal 15 30 45
advanced 30 45 75
elite 45 75 105

In other words, you should plan on fighting 5 times for the Frosty and 34 times for the Winterfest present if you are playing T3/elite.

Speaking of boxes, the Frosty Present should win you:

  • Flawed snowballs (always between 1 and 3)
  • Winter confetti (always between 1 and 3)
  • 40% chance for either: Mustache, Pipe, Rebreather, Goggles, Helm guards, Knight Vision Goggles, Mech’Tennas, Wide Vee, Munitions pack, Intel Tube, Sensor Unit, Binoculars
  • 35% chance for either: Mohawk, Headlamp, Spike Mohawk, Maedate, Ankle Booster, Shoulder Booster, Monocle, Aero Fin
  • 23% chance for either: Field cap, Field cap (Plumed), Wind-up Key, Vial Bandolier
  • 2% chance for either: Trojan helmet or armor

All costumes and accessories are “Frosty” themed.

The Winterfest Present contains:

  • Flawed snowballs (always between 1 and 3)
  • Winter confetti (always between 1 and 3)
  • 0.1% chance for an Impostoclaus Outfit
  • 59% chance for a Winterfest Onesie
  • 40% chance for a Winterfest Pullover

Happy Grindfest everyone!
