    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
    =============================================

    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.

    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.

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.

      Hey :)

      it looks like we're limited to one Saturnalia for our empire, right ?

      Can we move it to another capital city once it is built ?

      I believe it binds to your civ, so choose carefully.

      That would be kind to remove the civilization lock of the winter rewards by the future.

      it's quite annoying not being able to move those items to others civs through the vault.

      regards :)

      They are not bound to your civilization.

      Well,

      From my side, i cannot move the abdominable snowman to the vault.

      But it works fine with the stairs of saturnalia.

      So if that just happens with the snowman, not a big deal :)

      Other than crafting Mammoths, there is nothing else to do with shards for the next 11 months at the earliest.

      As Andy alluded to, Mammoth takes Shards too, so keep that in mind.

      Yes, but there is currently so much to do with shards right now, and it's not like you can earn shards outside of the event. 5 shards is also pretty prohibitive for a consumable, especially a consumable thats only somewhat more powerful then a single fully geared War Elephant.

      The mammoth consumable price will be adjusted in a future patch. Maybe 1, 2 or 3 shards. :)

      I would like to suggest an alternative.

      During the winter event, the mammoth's crafting cost could simply be a set few shards, with no epic material cost.

      Outside of the winter event, the crafting cost could be adjusted to a much higher epic material cost, with no winter shard cost.

      Thus during winter event, you can quickly and easily craft many mammoths. Outside of the winter event, you can still craft mammoths, but the cost could be prohibitive to the point that a single civ could only support a few each month.

      Additionally, I would like to point out consumable cost - Heroic Aid, an extremely powerful consumable with no age limit, and summons a much higher combined health/damage ouput, costs 300 winter points for 3, or 100 winter points each. With winter quests, the number of points you get are often at a 100:1 ration with Winter Heart Shards, and while they are spent differently during the event, they are earned the same. Currently, crafting 1x Wooly Mammoth would have a roughly equivalent cost to 5x Heroic Aid, and Heroic Aids are far more valuable not only due to their power (Summoning over 10k health of combined unit HP and over 400 DPS worth of unit damage), but also that they are usable in Age 1, making many difficult missions, such as VoK or Brennos far easier and more manageable.

      Additionally, Abominable Snowman, which aren't as powerful as Wooly Mammoths but are similar in that they are a Winter Event related A3 Legendary consumable, costs 75 winter points for 5, or 15 winter points each. The Winter Fort also has a much cheaper points cost, and it has higher damage output, natural splash, higher health, can be repaired rather then healed at an extensively faster rate, and it's only weakness is that it's immobile.

      I feel as though the Wooly Mammoth will need significant buffs to justify their significantly higher resource cost, whether it's in terms of stats, in terms of usable age or overall usability, or in terms of number of mammoths summoned. While there is plenty of time to change the Wooly Mammoth consumable as we have an additional 2 weeks before it can even be crafted, as it stands it'll be something that is cool to have, but overall impractical to make or depend on.
