Nothing says the holidays quite like whacking elves with very large pieces of equipment! Starting later this afternoon and running until January 6, the team at Red 5 Studios is putting its own spin on MMO holiday events with the Wintertide event.
Players can take part in a number of holiday themed activities to net them some snazzy rewards. These rewards can be claimed at the Wintertide vendors in Copacabana, Dredge, and Kanaloa Research Station.
“What are the events, Magicman?” Well, settle down and I’ll tell you. You can attempt to help Father Wintertide restore his shot down sled and save the present from bandits. Not a bad way to score some favor with the Big Guy, but not my favorite event. Next up, how about a holiday snowball fight in any of the snowball arenas set up all over the world? Again, certainly the holiday spirit, but still not my favorite event.
My favorite? Whack an Elf. Yep! You can spawn this little mini-game anywhere you please and it’s all just for you. Whack elves with a huge hammer, earn points, profit.
Happy elf whacking!
