The majority of the celebration takes place in Novograd and Nezebgrad where you will find the Snow Maiden and Father Winter. These festive event planners can be found in Novograd's Trade District and the Empire's Imperial Square.
The Snow Maiden will offer goods that can be purchased with the Special Holiday Coins you've been saving up! In addition to a variety of frosty winter weaponry, she'll also allow you to trade your coins in for higher quality ones and purchase winter gifts.
Father Winter will ask you to decorate the city. The decorations can be used for various things and the reputation you earn for decorating can be used to purchase the Snow Maiden's weapons.
During the event there will be a few new items going around, the most notable being the gifts and snowballs.
Snowballs come from interacting with a snowman that has been placed in town and can be thrown at NPCs and players. A short buff will be placed on enemy targets after being hit with a snowball. If the enemy is killed before the buff wears off, it will drop a Holiday Gift.
Snowballs can also be thrown at players with the Greedy Grandfather Frost buff to make them drop gifts, or you can just throw them at friends!
The [Holiday Gift]
is the most common gift and can be obtained without coins by looting a Holiday Tree, killing an enemy that has been hit by a Snowball, or by hitting a player with the Greedy Grandfather Frost buff with 10 Snowballs. Holiday Gifts can also be purchased from the Snow Maiden for 2 Special Silver Coins. The Holiday Gift itself is bound and can contain the following:

not be exchanging any bound holiday items for different ones, with the exception of the Frosty June Dreadnaught pattern as this is not currently an available drop in the game.
Players with June Dreadnaughts that wish to obtain the Frosty Dreadnaught Pattern can PM me with their character name and server, and tell me which pattern in their bag they would like to exchange for the Frosty Dreadnaught Pattern.
Please look forward to contests and events throughout the month were we will be providing generous amounts of platinum coins and winter gifts to help improve your chances at getting the prize you want =)
