    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?

    How_to_travel_to_the_new_region_-_Method_2.png
    Find_New_Region.png
    2. What are the new contents available in the event?
    • 7 mini-game style Quests and 7 Legendary Quests, with awesome rewards.
      • Legendary: Merry, Merry Marion (New in 2020!)
      • Legendary: Candy Cane Kourion (New in 2020!)
      • Legendary: Questing in Woods on a Snowy Evening (New in 2020!)
      • 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

    • All-new Region with an exclusive store: Fortress of the Ice King (P.S. You might want to enable in-game music when you visit this region!)

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

    In the Winter Event exclusive 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.

    ==========
    The first three gear pieces crafted will cost one heart and have no cooldown between crafts; Then the next piece will cost two hearts and have no cooldown. After that, each piece will cost three hearts and there will be a 36 hour cooldown between each craft. These timers are tracked separately for each civilization.
    ==========

    ==

    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?

    The Event is planned to last until 2021/02/01 00:00 UTC (February 1st). There has been a timer added to the sidebar on the Forums with a countdown, indicating how long you will have to play the Winter Event.

    ==

    9. What else is new?

    As with previous Events in 2020, we have now added an Archives Building specific to the Winter Event: The Ice King's Stronghold. Just like the Library of Horus and Prison of Zahhak, this building will allow you to play the Event's previous years' Quests after the Event is over.

      I thought this was the post on the forum for the winter event? It's the only one I had as you post on Discord and I've always used as the "official one for the event".

      Have you stopped doing that one on Discord and now do two different? Why didn't this one have it? And where is the one you speak of?

      EDIT:
      Found it, if anyone else searching:

      https://forums.projectceleste.com/

      *But this isn't where I've seen it before, and I couldn't find it by searching the forum, I had to enter the URL in its root and remove the last part in "https://forums.projectceleste.com/forums/" to find it. Why not include it in this part of the forum as I'm sure you usally have done?

      I like the new ones as well! Kourion make for a cool short game, and I like the no caravans with a body of water optional to incite trade ships like in Euphrates in disorder.

      I really love the frozen water in Marion with all the ships stuck in their hole. Poor sailors, they must not have liked to be charged by cavalry ;)
      The ice fishing is cool too. I just hope that my new tc doesn't sink this spring.


      I'm wondering if it is normal that the Ice King's Stronghold is so expensive to build compared to the other archives buildings.
      The other archives only cost about one legendary game of mats and the stronghold cost 25 average games to build.
      I guess I won't be getting many items if I want those 7 Strongholds.

      edit: it was said on discord that it could be nerfed next patch. Don't build your strongholds until then.

      I also thought it seemed VERY expensive - I mean mainly the 5 hearts now.

      On the halloween event you could do 2 missions and have the material for that building (and leftovers) - and in this winter event you need to do twice that to get just ONE heart, and then you need to do that 4 times more, or even more if you do the less rewarding quests. Seems as someone typed a 5 where it should be a 2 or a 1 for the cost for that building. When even 1 Heart would be 4x times as expensive as other such buildings, I really wonder if this was intentional or if it in fact was a mistake.

      This sounds very reasonable, but may I ask when next patch is coming? I've been watching the discord for a heads up for four days now, so since I see nothing yet I ask instead :)

      Another great job, fun minigames, and cool new items, and much more, congratulations on the hard work.

      Age of Empires Online will turn 10 on August 16, 2021, will we have something planned for the anniversary?

      Just so you know. The price is still 5x Ice King Hearts for the Ice King's Stronghold, and patch was yesterday.

      haha .. just realized - came back to change my dumb post - it was so much cheaper than I thought (I thougth like 1, or maybe 2 HEART) that I didn't even think about that.

      Sorry for that - but if anyone else is as sloppy as I was then perhaps someone else gets it also.

      Thanks for the reply. I can only see one quest giver in the fortress, which is the Abominable Snowman who only gives out the tasks which get you heart shards and exchanges 25 shards for a heart.
      Is there a minimum level for the task to exchange a heart for gear?

      I guess you need lvl 40 since the gear is legendary and normally you can get legendary gear after reaching 40
