There are only a few holidays each year where we here at JellyRO love to try to pull out all the stops, and that is Christmas. Heck if we could put lights up all over Midgard we would. We're not going to be outdone by the Peterson's this year! After putting in countless hours trying to get everything just right, we have a lot of new additions to share, and we hope that you all have a happy Yuletide. So enough spiked eggnog, lets go over the events shall we?

 


You're a mean one, Mr. Krampus.

Krampus is back and is scarier than ever! Every so often you will get a message that he was spotted in Lutie. If you are near him you might distract him enough to drop some Christmas Presents. The more crowded he is the more presents he will drop! But be careful sometimes he will explode, killing everyone near him! If you are observant you can tell how many presents will be dropped. 

 

Krampus will wander around Lutie for about 8 minutes before he realizes his present stealing bag is near empty and will have to restock.  But don't worry he will be back roughly at the start of each hour

 


Red Stockings for Mierna.

Being in Lutie, the Christmas town of Midgard, has its own stress and troubles. Mierna is certain that someone has stolen all of her Red Stockings. If you can bring her two, she will give you a Christmas Present that you can exchange to Gifu. She is in Luite (xmas_in 90,93)

 

But we here at JellyRO Headquarters know who the culprit is. Antonio is back to his old tricks now that Krampus stopped stealing his form. Using his many powers of time manipulation, he can be found in several locations. Mainly in Prontera, Geffen, and Payon Fields.

Gifu, the event reward giver.

Gifu is a little Myst Case who loves getting presents. They are willing to give you some pretty cool rewards if you can collect enough of them. They are located in IsFörsvar (far_in01 13/26) , and can even give you some information on where to get more. In fact, Gifu is pretty sure they saw some floating in the waters in IsFörsvar, but they are scared of the water, perhaps you could fish them out. Chow Fan in Hugel will also exchange 1 GM Jellybean for 100 Christmas Presents.  

 


The Gift that keeps giving

A message from Kathis

 

This Christmas we have a rather special mechanic to offer. You will be able to wrap any items in a present and give it someone. To do so you just need to get your hands on both Wrapping Paper and Wrapping Lace. Clicking on one of them will open a shop menu. (This isn't a real shop, just how the client renders it.)  Place a single item in the window and click sell. 


Wrapping_Gift-1.png 1 item type per sell window.
Wrapping_Gift-1.png No account bound items.
Wrapping_Gift-1.png You can wrap items in stacks.
Wrapping_Gift-1.png You can wrap refined items.
Wrapping_Gift-1.png You CANNOT wrap things that have cards or special data. 
Wrapping_Gift-1.png You CANNOT wrap anything that is broken.
Wrapping_Gift-1.png You CANNOT wrap anything that is not identified. 
Wrapping_Gift-1.png You CANNOT wrap other wrapped presents.


This gift can be traded and mailed to your friends. They cannot be vended however, and it should be noted that you shouldn't be trading these gifts for Zeny or other items, with the promise of  "There is something really cool in there I swear!" Treat them like you would a real Christmas gift. Generally you wouldn't go to your Christmas Tree and see a bunch of presents and before you can open them your grandmother is like, "that will be 200 dollars..."

 

These Wrapping Paper and Wrapping Lace can be found by slaying Christmas Orc and Christmas Goblin in an IsFörsvar Cave.

 


The Gift of Giving Event

Located in Prontera you will meet Snower. This young lad is looking for help from those who are charitable and willing to give and deliver presents to his sisters Snoowy and  Sneewy. They will want gifts that are wrapped. You can wrap them yourself or you can have Snower do it for 100 zeny each. Be warned that he will not stack them very well and will put single items in a box. For example, if you had 50 red potions, he would charge you 5000 Zeny and give you 50 Wrapped Presents. When opened, each are a single red potion. 

 

Snoowy is located on Byalan Island (Izlu2dun 59,77) 

Sneewy is located in Louyang (louyang 224,249)


A Kafra Christmas.

 

Some of you may remember a Kafra Christmas from last year, it has been fixed and tested this year.  A refresher for those that don't remember or are new.

This event, from 2014, has been revamped and we have added a hidden bonus prize (12000 Auro to be exact) that one clever player will be able to claim if they figure it out before anyone else! To find what you need to claim the prize, you must first talk to Kafra Christie in the middle of Prontera. Other bonus prizes may become available after the big one has been claimed.

 

She has two ways for players to earn Special Reserve Points, which can be redeemed at the Kafra Headquarters in the northwest corner of Aldebaran for Kafra themed rewards as well as some cute holiday hats! The quick way is to simply donate Zeny. The fun way, which may lead you to the bonus prize, involves collecting donations from Citizen NPCs located around Prontera, Alberta, Izlude and Geffen.

 

Try to find all the Citizens and collect as many donations from them as you can before returning to Kafra Christie with your haul of Small, Medium and Large donation boxes, which will net you varying amounts of Special Reserve Points upon delivery. When you are making your rounds as a temporary Kafra employee, be sure to use your best customer service skills and listen carefully to what the Citizens have to say. Every day you can go around and try collecting more donations from them.

 

GM Gift Exchange.

 

The staff will be hosting a gift exchange on the 24th. (As well as a weekly GM Event.)  More information will be posted closer to the date. 

 


So as you can see, there is lots of Christmas cheer to be had!  All that is left is for everyone to go and make merriment in the land of Midgard. It should be noted that we'll be phasing out the Blue, Green, Red, and Yellow Xmas Boxes. So please use them before next year. 

 

 

Event ends on Jan 2, 2023!
