As the Lunar New Year approached, our spectacled scientists at Spiral HQ began monkeying around with gear again, trying to find new ways of adapting to this new world. At first, we came up with some real howlers. Marmoset there would be days like this. So, undaunted, we refined these into something golden--the Spiraltail Prize Box. See what might be squirreled away in yours:

- Spiraltail Drakon pods
- Spiraltail accessories (tails, naturally)
- Spiraltail mail
- Spiraltail masks
- Firetail
- Mail of the Firetail
- Mask of the Firetail

The Spiraltail Prize Box will be here through February 16, 2016. You know the drill! Before you roloway, poke your proboscis at all the details.

We are declaring a state of emergency in the Moorcroft Manor Archives, as black kats are storming the area and consuming the precious tomes within! We need all knights of rank 4-1 and greater to gear up and retrieve Ancient Pages from these voracious vermin.

Do the Kataclysmic Confrontation prestige mission and/or fight through kat levels in the Clockworks to find black kats. Then, visit Montague in Moorcroft Manor, or the Mysterious Crafting Machine in Haven, with your collection of Ancient Pages, and craft stuff:
  • Kat Claw hood, mask, cowl
  • Kat Hiss hood, mask, cowl
  • Kat Eye hood, mask, cowl
If you happen to perform (accidentally, we assume) a Dark Ritual (yes, THAT dark ritual) and survive the encounter, you may find yourself in possession of a Black Kat Cowl or a Wicked Whisker. With Wicked Whiskers, dropped for all present party members, the following gear can be made:
  • Kat Claw cloak, mail, raiment
  • Kat Hiss cloak, mail, raiment
  • Kat Eye cloak, mail, raiment
  • Black Kat cloak, mail, raiment, hood, mask
If you have participated in a previous Kataclysmic Confrontation and still have Ancient Page tokens, they are still valid! Ancient Page tokens do not expire.

What is best in life?

Yes, yes, we can recite the thing about lamentations and defeating enemies too, but here's what it really is: Coming inside from a Winterfest snowball fight, donning comfy clothing, and settling in front of the fire with a cup of hot cocoa and the people who still think of you as a friend after that snowball fight.

As far as cuddly attire goes, Spiral HQ has got you covered (ha HA!) with the Cozy Prize Box, available through January 5, 2016! Embrace your new reputation as a veritable singularity of adorableness when you don the following:

- Pullovers (multiple colors)
- Onesies (multiple colors)
- Round Night Caps (multiple colors)
- Sallet Night Caps (multiple colors)
- Ashtail Slippers
- Dusker Slippers
- Skolver Slippers
- Snarbolax Slippers
- Vog Slippers
- Wolver Slippers

You may wish to requisition a set of ear plugs and stay away from all glass objects, as shrill squealing is a common side effect of unexpected contact with this level of cute.

Each of these boxes also has a 15% chance of including a bonus Pile of Pillows, so if you still have any friends left over from a snowball fight, you can fix that issue indoors. We're here to help.

For full details, check here. Have a cozy and delightful Winterfest!

It's here, knights! Winterfest is here!

Have you been naughty, or nice? Nice, right?

No? Naughty? Why would you--

Never mind. Fine. It's fine. It's Winterfest, after all, and Winterfest is for everyone! Here's the rundown:

NEW: Winterfest Danger Rooms in the Clockworks! From these random encounters, you can collect Frozen Winterfest Wishlist tokens. Impostoclaus' trusty assistant, Randolph, is stationed by the Haven fountain and will trade these tokens for Winterfest Present Boxes, in which you may find:
  • Candy Striped Onesie
  • Festively Striped Onesie
  • Holly Striped Onesie
  • Joyous Striped Onesie
  • Flashy Winter Pullover
  • Garish Winter Pullover
  • Gaudy Winter Pullover
  • Tacky Winter Pullover
  • Impostoclaus Outfit
Each Winterfest Present also contains one to three Winter Confetti and Flawed Snowballs.

The Mysterious Alchemy Machine is also producing a weapon called the Peppermint Repeater. Although it sounds tasty, it is for external application only and we do not recommend licking it.

Grinchlin Assault Prestige Mission

Invade the Grinchlin base of operations on Mount Krampus and put an end to their humbug! Face a choice at each shelter - collect loot and leave the mountain, or leave the treasure and climb further toward the summit! Collect special materials from Mount Krampus to craft 5* Grinchlin reskinned weapons:
  • Deadly Candy Poker
  • Nog Blaster
  • Jack Froster
  • Scalding Hot Cocoa
  • Humbug Hazer
Can you make it all the way to the summit? If so, you have a chance to win Golden or Silver Solstice Rings. These 4* trinkets protect against fire and freeze with a +1 health bonus. Leave them as-is, or combine them to craft a 5* Grand Solstice Ring trinket!

And remember, don't eat the Grinchlin Snowballs. Those are for...well, you'll figure it out.

Save Winterfest!

Those Grinchlins just won't quit. As with last year, they aim to ruin Winterfest for everyone, and they're making a pretty strong showing. Impostoclaus wants YOU to assist him by doing the Save Winterfest prestige mission!

If you've been naughty this year, this is a great time to redeem yourself...or just to get red, green, and white Winter Wish tokens. Trade with Randolph in Haven:
