‘Twas the night before Winter Convergence, booming Gleamite Meteors dance across the sky. The whimsical Winter Wanderer armed with holiday cheer gracefully descends upon Aeternum. Offering joy to all, the jolly, young gentleman adorns Winter Villages with Gifts, Trees of Light, and Holiday Huts.
But the wicked Winter Warrior donned in malice rises carelessly from the darkest caverns of the Eternal Isle. Snatching the warmth of the holiday, Frigid Folk, a Forever Winter, and misery lurk behind the cruel, old brute. Help the Winter Wanderer fight back against the bitter chill of the icy scourge for new event-specific rewards.
Holiday cheer spreads across Aeternum once more as Winter Convergence blankets the Eternal Isle on December 12, 2023 through January 9, 2024. This year’s festival features changes to Winter Village Gifts, Gleamite Meteors, and rewards based on player feedback. You can also purchase new and returning items in the Event Shop.
Here’s how the Development Team made Winter Convergence Festival rewards even more satisfying.
Gift Piles and Gift Sacks
We wanted to cut down on the number of Winter Villages players felt like they had to visit for meaningful rewards, so we upped the amount of gifts for both Gift Piles and Gift Sacks.
Each Gift Pile will now include 4 presents (previously 1) per player, but players may only interact with 3 Trees of Light daily. Gift piles will also include 2 White Gypsum and 1 random holiday food.
Each Gift Sack will now provide 3 presents (previously 1) on the first interaction, but players may only interact with 1 Gift Sack daily. Gift sacks will also include 1 random holiday food.
Items marked with daily limits will reset at 5 AM local time. For example, if a player interacts with their third Tree of Light at 4:58 AM, they’ll be able to earn another at 5:01 AM.
The Winter Warrior and his glacial minions are back, bringing with them another threat of the Forever Winter. Rally a party of 20+ players to defeat this open-world boss wreaking havoc throughout Great Cleave, Brightwood, Edengrove, Ebonscale Reach, and Brimstone Sands for a bounty of limited-time rewards.
To further incentive the safety of Aeternum, the Winter Warrior will now drop 15 Dark Matter 3 times daily.
An unknown phenomenon has increased the frequency of Gleamite Meteors around the world. Share your favorite images and discuss the best sightseeing spots with the community.
