The end of another year is rapidly drawing near, which means that Frostfell is almost upon us once again!
This event will be on the live servers from 8 a.m. Pacific on December 7, 2021 until 11:59 p.m. on January 4, 2022. As with every past Frostfell event, this event starts 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!) The TLE servers, Kaladim and Tarinax, will have most of the event EXCEPT for: Little Lost Goblin, Deepice Dreams, Special Delivery, O Frostfell Tree, Tis the Season, Gift Giving, and Gallivanting Gifties. (This is due to the zones needed for these not being available on those servers.)
Nine of Santa Glug's sixteen gifts this year are new. Gerbi Frostfoot will sell twelve new items for Frozen Token of E'ci. Giggawat and Garsleblat will sell several old Frostfell outfits for coin. There are three new Frostfell crafting books this year: Frostfell Outfits You Can Make XIV, Frostfell Feasts and Decorative Crafts XIV and Scholarly Pursuits for a Festive Frostfell XIV. Last, but not least, there is one new overseer quest this year.
You may wish 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.
These are the items from three newest Frostfell recipe books (Frostfell Outfits You Can Make XII, Frostfell Feasts and Decorative Crafts XII and Scholarly Pursuits for a Festive Frostfell).

*The Frostfell Magic Flinger will fling players up into the air when they run too close to it.
**Shimmering Splendor Frost Star is another of those special effect items that does not preview properly in the preview window, and cannot be resized due to the particle effects on it.
Garselblatt and Giggawatt Gigglegibber, two of the gift vendors in the Frostfell Wonderland Village, sell some clothing items for coin that have not been available in several years:
The new overseer quest series, which can only be obtained during Frostfell, is available from Pilip Mumbletoes in the Frostfell Wonderland Village. You may repeat this series as many times as you wish, so long as Frostfell is running when you go to obtain the starter again.
|Arctic Wyrm (housepet)
||Icespire Maiden Plushie
||Petamorph Wand: Eidolon of the Ancients
The final overseer quest in the series will also grant you the prefix title of "Saga Survivor."
All four Frostfell collections are returning this year. This includes the frozen toes collection from the Frostfell Wonderland Village and the Icy Keep dungeon, plus the three new ones from last year. (Since folks don't always have those three new ones memorized: Three pieces from each collection are found (Qeynos/Freeport/Neriak), three pieces from each collection are found in the Frostfell Wonderland Village, and three pieces from each collection are found in the secondary cities of Gorowyn, Kelethin, New Halas.)
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, with a couple new items added to his offerings. 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.
His returning items include three Frostfell-themed mercenary contracts, four gumdrop familiars, 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 two new items are a "Brightly the Baby Dragon" familiar and "Yulondo, the Steadfast" mount.
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.
I really don't know how Ocarinah keeps up with everything, I truly don't, but I am very grateful that she does. She has put together a full narrated version of the Frostfell House Item Preview as well as a short silent version. As always, thanks, ma'am! You rock!
