    Hello there Celeste players! The Winter Event is finally upon us and it is the biggest Event we've had in Project Celeste so far!

    To access the event, 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. :)

    Winter Event Special Login Rewards
    =================================
    [​IMG]
    This year, we are bringing you guys a complete set of 35 login gifts for the entire duration of the Winter Event. These rewards will be taking over the regular daily login rewards, and will last until the very last day of the event.

    Similar to normal login rewards, the reward track will reset every Monday so don't miss your chance at logging in at least once every day to get every reward. If you log on days 1, 2, 4 and 5 of the week, you will get the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th rewards. Refer to the graphic above to see what reward is available on which day of the week.

    (PF2K's Personal Note: You don't want to miss the Axe of the Piercing Frost, the Wall Recipe, the Consumable Recipe and the Vanity Building set, guys! They are currently ONLY available via the Daily Login Rewards for the Winter Event.)

    Capital City Vanity Building Set: Winter Saturnalia
    =============================================
    [​IMG]
    For the first time ever, we are introducing Capital City Vanity Building Sets. For this set, you will receive the first piece for free when you first accept the introduction quest for the Winter Event, but the rest of the pieces are given out via the Daily Login Rewards.

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

    4. Where can I get the new PvP Quests?

    [​IMG]
    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, but make sure to log in every day to get all the Login Rewards, too!

    ==
    6. What are Winter Points, what can I get with them and where do I spend them?

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    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 years' Event Exclusive Gears all in the new Region's Store, Gingerbread Goodies.

    [​IMG]
    ==
    ==
    7. What new Gear is available for the Event?

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    For the craftable gear, the first three new 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.

    For the older pieces, everything will be the same as the new gear, except the crafting costs are 3, 3, 3, 6 and 9 Hearts.
    ==
    8. 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:

      Hey everyone, remember: the Axe of the Piercing Frost should be used exclusively on your Norse Throwing Axemen. It is the only axe in the game that buffs maximum range, which makes the item specifically designed for the Norse Throwing Axeman. Using this axe anywhere but on that unit is a bit of a waste, particularly if a player were to equip it (and bind it) to a different civ. We know some players will invariably do this, but it would help us very much if people mentioned this when they can. In order to buffer against this, you can actually acquire a total of three of these axes during the event (W1D4, W2D5, W5D5). The other reasoning behind giving you each three axes where you only need one is so there will be plenty to sell/give away to others/newcomers once the event ends.

      Considering that mistake would be dramatic for some of us :D

      You could add a filter on the first axe

      I mean something like with the advisors :Requires Norse civilization

      So on Dec 26th, we'll be in Day 7 of this current week's daily login - so will the event's first login reward happen on the 27th, or will we skip Day 7 for this week?

      Edit - from PF2K's post, looks like it's still a Monday reset - so I'm assuming the first daily login reward won't happen until 24 hours into the event.

      This is so wonderful! So much new cool stuff and so many new leg quests it's incredible!

      I really like the ignore armor as frost theme. It's kind of specialization gear, but not as direct as bonus vs type of units. I can imagine swapping spears often depending on the maps.
      Tower creeping might be very powerful with all that increased dmg vs buildings. Bring out the Harjars builders and the engineers and the pots of greek fire!
      Harjar Commander Håvard can be a real build now lol!
      Fun things to think about!

      Thank you so much!

      The vanity items, are they only 1 per acccount?

      If so, I'll need to remember to claim on Norse only.

      Is this where I can acquire it in any civ but then put it in the Empire Vault to access in the Norse civ?

      Yes, like most all other gear, until a player equips the gear on a unit, players should be able to freely move the gear in their empire vault and trade it to other players, too.

      Looking at the log-in rewards, there seems to be a couple of inconsistencies?

      Week 3, Day 1: 100 Winter Points. Similar rewards are at 250 winter points.
      Week 5, Day 6: 1 Ice King Heart. All other Ice King Heart rewards on Day 6 are also accompanied by 10k coin.
      Hrmm, that's mostly it that I can notice.

      My wife’s Romans are at level 40 but don’t have an Empire store. Anyone know why that might be?
