Marked by increased snowfall and Northern Lights in the sky, Winter Convergence is a time of dichotomy and duality as the Winter Wanderer and Winter Warrior come to the land.
While within the settlements gifts are exchanged to mark the passing of the year, outside the safety of the walls a wintry war rages between the positive forces of Winter (slumber, perseverance) championed by the Winter Wanderer's positive side and the negative forces of Winter (death, stagnation) championed by the Winter Wanderer's negative side.
To make it worse, the Winter Warrior and his Frigid Folk are causing mayhem throughout the land - attempting to spread the dreaded “Forever Winter”.
The player takes on the cause of the Winter Wanderer to collect Winter Tokens from repeatable events across the island, and is able to turn them in to a Holiday Shop containing rare and cosmetic items. The Winter Wanderer's positive aspect grows in power with each Token collected and turned in.
Icy winds and the Winter Wanderer bring with them new armors, weapons, furnishings, skins, consumables, and a delightful “present gifting” emote; all themed to match the wonderful holiday.
The Winter Wanderer has set up four villages to facilitate the joy and cheer of Winter Convergence. Visit these villages in Everfall, Monarch’s Bluffs, Weaver’s Fen, and Brightwood to meet the Winter Wanderer and carry out his holiday quests!
Ice Caves are appearing all over Aeternum because of the Winter Warrior's desire for a Forever Winter. They are snowy and icy caves that the yeti use their powers to freeze up and make snow fall. The rest of Aeternum will look like these Ice Caves if the onslaught of the Warrior is not stopped!
These caves will remain behind after the event as scars on the land, sources of wintry magic that refuse to melt even if the Winter Warrior is somehow defeated.
