    Hello there Celeste players! The Winter Event is finally upon us.

    Once you update your game, go to your Empire Store in your Capital City and find all the new quests for the event. Alternatively, you can access the Event content by going to Sparta. More detailed instructions below.

    You can find every detail regarding what's new in the event in the attached graphics! We hope that you all have lots of fun playing with friends during the event. :)

    So let's break down the details of the event in a question-based list:

    1. How do I access the special event content?

    2. What are the new contents available in the event?

      • Legendary: Ice King Mountain High Enough
      • Legendary: Winter Wonderland
      • Legendary: Run Rudolph Run
      • Legendary: There’s No Place like Paphos for the Holidays
        • This is our first experiment with using original Quests, changing them around slightly and presenting them in the theme of the event. We'd like to hear you guys' feedback on this style of event Quests so let us know in the comments what you think!
    • Reindeer Games
    • The Ice King is Coming to Town
    • Do you fear what I hear?
    • Home for the Holidays
    • Spreading Yuletide Cheer
    • Dash Away All
    • Hamel the Yuletide Camel

    ==
    3. Where do I find the new PvE Quests?

    In the new Region, the Fortress of the Ice King

    ==

    4. Where can I get the new PvP Quests?

    PvP_Quests.png
    In Sparta, from the Abominable Snowman next to the Statue of Dionysus.

    Note: When you accept the quest, you need to go to the Fortress of the Ice King, complete the "The Ice King Cometh!" quest, and then head back to Sparta to find the new event PvP quests from the Abominable Snowman Questgiver in Sparta.

    ==

    5. Can I get every event Item playing only PvP or only PvE?
    Yes! Everything is obtainable by playing either mode.

    (PF2K's Personal Note: Play PvP guys. PvP mode best mode!!!)

    ==

    6. What are Winter Points, what can I get with them and where do I spend them?
    Winter Points are the special currency of the Winter Event. You can use them to buy Vanity Gear, Capital City Decoration, Consumables, in addition to two of last year's Event Exclusive Gears all in the new Region's Store, Gingerbread Goodies.

    ==

    7. What are the Global Quests?

    They are quests that can be done in any game mode and inside any quest. They include, but are not limited to, the following types of quests:
    • Play Repeatable, Elite or Legendary Quests
    • Play Co-op Quests with your friends
    • Train, Kill and Convert enemy units in Ranked PvP matches.
    • Defeat special treasure guardians (Abominable Snowmen)
    ==

    8. How long will the event last?

      Is there a limit on how many times you can exchange a heart for an item? When the event just came out it was limited to 1 per civ, but after the hotfixes I was able to do it a few times more. Now it seems 5 or 6 per civ is the limit, is this intended? Just wondering. Seems to be intended because it's not marked as repeatable, if so it would be nice to include this info somewhere.

      I like it. I hadn't played the game in months and it was convenient to have an easy and well known quest as part of the event. It's slightly different but mostly the same.

      The first 4 times are instant, then it gets a repeat timer. It was like this last year too, though slightly different where we had some epic material requirements as well.

      What do you mean?

      I found the quest where you have to defend Bahrams bazar, and kill 300(!!!) abominal snowmen quite impossible. The most I have been able to kill was 66, before I got overrun by the 2 attack of the snowmen...I tried to use house + Castles + Towers+ a LOT of Priests and ranged units to no avail. and even with the help of the Heoric Aid consumable and other advanced consumables, I couldn't kill more than the 66 snowmen before I got totaly overrun. The first attack, was no problem, but straight after i got demolished in about 2 minuttes, even with about 50 or 60 different elite units.

      It's doable but I agree it's harder than it should be, especially in comparison to other event quests.
      You start with 5k of each resource so use vils to build things ASAP. You need cost effective anti infantry units or lots of towers or both. Priests are fine too if you have buildings and tanky units in front.

      It's one of the quests that really tests your ability to shore up early defenses through counter-production (and probably makes you look at getting into co-op) :D It is doable solo, but harder than most solo content is early on. I don't know about "too hard" though, considering my gear is pretty ordinary for a cashed up level 40 and I got 2/3 cleared without too much planning about early approach. If you follow a guide video on one of the preferred openings it's only fairly short.

      Thanks for your advices. I'll try again, when I feel up to it. Luckily there is som much other to do, both in this superb Winter Event, and in the game as a whole, that it doesn't matter too much.

      That's how I feel when I can't be bothered watching how people do legendary content :D

      I hear pvp is a real easy way to get rewards ;)

      "Do you hear what i fear" is just a case of spamming out lots of anti-infantry (and perhaps an extra fort and some towers if you feel the need), it also helps to plonk down a market and armory, sell off some stone, get a few infantry upgrades, upgrade your barracks to make infantry faster and research champ upgrades and get some extra barracks, then just get pumping out hypapists(or equivalent). Don't try to stop the swarm coming, focus on upgrades and getting some extra buildings for unit production and use the resources you're given, there's plenty to work with. (don't forget extra houses to increase pop support).

      Pretty much. Having anti-inf (or just some inf as a frontline while you get archers, towers, and more of everything fast on Persia and Babylonian) is a must. It's a deathmatch quest at the end of the day, and being geared somewhat can help (like anything in the game, it's doable gearless [or near].... if you're a top tier player playing the quest out the ideal way, for everyone else there's itemizing and rough strategy to beat it), cause stronger anti infantry/static defense and some worker build speed comes in handy for what you're trying to do.
