The Midwinter Festival is about to start in all three realms. This is a time for hearth and home, and bright and merry decorations! Come see this year’s celebrations at your realm’s festival grounds. Tavern Keepers everywhere have decorated their buildings with traditional adornments.
Olibar, the Midwinter Tomte, will be paying frequent visits to Castle Sauvage, Svasud Faste, and Druim Ligen seeking assistance. He seems to have lost some Midwinter presents throughout the battlegrounds. Speak to him if you wish to assist him. Players on the Mordred and Gaheris servers between the levels of 35 to 49 can speak to him to receive a special Frontier Gift Retrieval quest instead.
Santa Nicholas, Lucia of the Light, and Jack Frost will arrive with gifts for the people of the realms, but there’s been a bit of a crisis: their presents were hijacked and are now in the possession of dangerous enemies. They will offer the Saving Midwinter quest to all adventurers level 48 and above. Save Midwinter and earn a Cloak of Midwinter and a Medal of Honor! Visit them at the Winter Villages outside of Ludlow, Ardee, and Vasudheim.
In Albion, Clara sets up a giant tree at the festival tents. Speak with her for information on obtaining an appropriately-sized one for your own home or yard. Nearby, Sister Samantha is collecting toys for the children of Albion. She offers some fine holiday greenery as a reward to those generous souls who answer her call.
In Midgard, Kevin somehow manages to decorate a tree all for himself. Ask him about it and he may give you a few pointers regarding your own arboreal home decorating. The Gythja of Frigg is taking donations of toys from passers-by and granting them wreaths and garlands in return.
In Hibernia, the rather small elf Noelle brings her tree to the festival grounds. She will help you start your own holiday tradition if you want one of your own. Matron Elleweh is looking for assistance in gathering gifts for the children of Hibernia, with a promise of some festive decorations in return.
The Trinkets for Tots quest is available for all levels.
The Midwinter Tree quests start at level 35, however rumor has it that there may be a more advanced challenge to follow for those of level 48 and up.
Midwinter will start tomorrow, December 20th, and will run until January 17, 2012.
