Frostfell 2019

There is a growing chill in the Norrathian air, and faint sounds of sleighbells -- Frostfell is almost upon us!

This event is currently on the Test server. It will be live from the morning of December 10, 2019 and end on the morning of January 7, 2020. As with every past Frostfell event, this event starts and ends with a 7 a.m. patch time, instead of the midnight-to-midnight you are used to with other events. (Those huge Frostfell trees in Qeynos and Freeport take some special tending to in that respect!) Please note that the TLE Server, Kaladim, will only have special Frostfell merchants in Qeynos and Freeport during the event this year.

What's New?

Eight of Santa Glug's sixteen gifts this year are new. Gerbi Frostfoot will sell five new items for Frozen Token of E'ci. Giggawat and Garsleblat will sell one new item, and one item that has not been available since 2011. There are three new Frostfell crafting books this year: Frostfell Outfits You Can Make XII, Frostfell Feasts and Decorative Crafts XII and Scholarly Pursuits for a Festive Frostfell. Last, but not least, there are three new collections this year, all of which reward appearance items.

How to Access the Event

If you are new to Frostfell, or simply feeling a bit brain-fogged, the main Frostfell hub, the Frostfell Wonderland Village, is available from every home city via a magic cabinet. There is quite a bit to see and do in there as well as quests in all starting cities. I recommend that you visit the wiki for details on the quests. If you have a lot of alts that you want to run through the event, you might also want to download Casdoe's Frostfell tracker in XLS version and a PDF version, both of which have been updated for 2019.

Make sure to clear out a bunch of bag space - or make room for one Frostfell shopping bag from the vendor, and some extra room in another bag or two not only for the overflow from that bag, but also for the items that you craft, gifts from Santa, quest rewards, etc. If you forget to unload before you head in, there is a banker at the top of the zone, near the entrance.

New Crafted

Note that there was an oops with the new "Ice Brick" cutouts (arched doorframes and the like) for the ice brick block set. While the proper art is supposed to be available when the event goes live, I will not be able to get a screenshot of the set until it is available.

Other than that little issue, here is what you are looking at from the three newest Frostfell recipe books (Frostfell Outfits You Can Make XII, Frostfell Feasts and Decorative Crafts XII and Scholarly Pursuits for a Festive Frostfell).

Santa Glug Gifts

Every 18 hours, each of your characters can visit Santa Glug in the Frostfell Wonderland Village for a random gift. This year there are eight gifts returning from past years, and eight new ones.

A Stocking-stuffed Frostfell Cube
(fluff pet scroll)
A Tundra Snapper
(heirloom housepet)
Brontotherium Plushie
Petamorph Wand: Chocolaty
Ninjabread Man
Deepice Wrapped Present
Mint Candy Cane Crown of Death
Myrist Snowglobe
(tune: "Aria of Chaos"
Sweet Frostfell Signplate

Note: Signplate is a true sign, not a "magic mouth". This means you can set 2 lines, a sign "name" and a sign "text" that can be read when you mouseover it.

In addition to the above new Santa Glug gifts, returning items that you may also receive are:

  • Santa Glug Plushie
  • Enchanted Snowman (fluff pet scroll)
  • Snowfall Tapestry
  • Tan Reindeer Plushie
  • A Candy Cane Frostfell Cube (housepet)
  • A Domestic Mallard
  • Green Velvet Loot Sack
  • Sweet Dreams Pillow

New Buyables

Gerbi Frostfoot sells five new items for Frozen Token of E'Ci. If memory serves, you will need to have done one of the Icy Keep instances on the purchasing character either in past years or this year, in order to unlock access to him. (I'm sure someone will correct me with which exact quest(s) unlock him soon enough. :D)

An Eggnog Candycane Frostfell Cube
(housepet) 6 tokens
Entranced Glacier Plushie
10 tokens
Shelled Frost Slimer
(fluff pet) 20 tokens
White Frosttail Reindeer Plushie
10 tokens
Cool Mint Candy Cane Crown
6 tokens

Garselblatt and Giggawatt Gigglegibber, two of the gift vendors in the Frostfell Wonderland Village, sell one item that has not been available in several years, the "Snowfall Cape" for 1 Frozen Token of E'Ci. They ALSO sell one utterly new item for 6 gold - the Ratonga Tree Topper Plushie. Please excuse the huge image. I couldn't bear to shrink the adorable little lady down.

What Else?

Obtaining Frostfell crafting stations for your home is once again an option this year. The Frostfell crafting instance also returns (look for the gobbie with the green quest feather in the Frostfell Wonderland Village for the quest), harvestable gifts return, etc.

In addition, we are seeing the return of the Twelve Days of Frostfell again this year. Santa Glug's Curious Clerk will be located in Qeynos Harbor and West Freeport, near those cities' Magic Closet that leads to the Frostfell Wonderland Village.

He will sell 3 Frostfell-themed mercenary contracts, 4 gumdrop familiars (one of which is ethereal), and one house deed. The house, Santa Glug's Cheerful Holiday Home, consists of 3 snowglobe "rooms" (right-click the housing portal to port from globe to globe) that are placed inside of a massively oversized replica of the entry area to the old Baubbleshire Inn.

The Glug's Chocolate Coin currency for these items will be obtained as a bonus from purchasing specific Frostfell-themed items from the "Holiday Bundles" section of the Marketplace. The currency is heirloom.
