For the month of December, Ironbeard and the Gnodfather are once again competing for Solstice domination! To participate, purchase solstice stockings directly from the website, which can then be hung in manses and commune and city rooms, max of 1 per room.
Syntax: HANG <stocking> FOR <me|person> [ANONYMOUS]
Syntax: STOCKINGS (to help track your stockings)
At midnight, the person it was hung for can UNWRAP and get their reward:
- 3 Genie Curio pieces
- 2 Iron Coins
- 1 Macaron Curio piece OR 1 Beauty Curio piece OR 1 Blemish Curio piece
- a present from Ironbeard OR a racetrack ticket from the Gnodfather
For every 5 stockings that you hang, you will receive either a gold stocking that will open on December 25th or a platinum stocking that will open on New Year’s Day. These extra special gold and platinum stockings will contain all the standard stocking stuffers (3 Iron Coins rather than 2 in the case of a platinum stocking), and either peppermint from Ironbeard or coal from the Gnodfather. Peppermint and coal can be combined to create special Solstice artifacts (see the revamped HELP SOLSTICEARTIFACTS)!
But because it is the season of giving, each gold and platinum stocking will also include a single glowing present. These glowing presents, when opened, will give you a greater chance of receiving a better present without resetting your present counter. Additionally, 10 other players in your room will also receive a normal present to open at the same time! Spread the joy and cheer to everyone this year!
Throughout December you can also enjoy a variety of boons during the entire week. These are as follows:
Klangratch’s Mighty Mondays
Bonus to damage against denizens.
Double Experience Tuesdays
Earn twice the experience on Tuesdays (does not include Endzones essence gain).
Shanth’s Harmonious Wednesdays
Boosts ego damage dealt against denizens in influence battles.
Tzaraziko’s Unexpected Thursdays
Additional 25% critical hit chance for everyone.
Enjoy a True Favour from the Fates.
And finally, if you log in for 21 days in December (check LOGINDAYS) you will receive a special solstice voucher which you’ll be able to exchange for a gift of your choice. One of the options is the fabled merry solstice stocking which gives a free gift every Lusternian year – among options are commodities, reagents, palettes, artifact golden lips, goop, and more. Due to the power of the stocking, those who already have one will not be able to obtain another. We’re looking to keep things even and allow others to catch up! Worry not though as those who already have it will be able to exchange the voucher for something else instead.
Keep your eyes peeled for more announcements as we have a lot planned for December!
