Frozen Magic Event 2016

12102014_Frozen-Magic_detailpage.jpg

Winter is still here in Atreia, and that means there are still many snowballs to be made. What kind of snowballs you may be wondering? Well, Frosterinerk says Aetherized snow make the best snowballs, capable of yielding fabulous prizes. So take a break from making snow-angels and drinking hot chocolate to see how great you can make your snowballs!

Icon

- Part One: Frosterinerk's Gift (Level 30+) -

In the capital cities, talk to Frosterinerk daily to get Snowballs. To cultivate the aetherized Snowballs, right-click or double-click on the Snowball to enchant it to the next level. Enchant the snowball up to +10 to make the Brilliant Snowball. When you open the Brilliant Snowball you will get (1) Icy Shard and (1) Brilliant Fragment. Combine these items to get a Brilliant Ice Prism, which offers a random high value prize. If the snowball explodes at any point before +10, random prizes will automatically be redeemed into your inventory.

Two Snowballs can be collected daily from Frosterinerk and an additional one Snowball for every 30 minutes you are logged in up to six. In total this allows you to get eight free Snowballs per character per day! Additionally, once per account per day you can pick up a bundle of five Snowballs from the store for 1 NCoin. If you need more Snowballs, bosses from these instances have a chance to drop them as well as well as being able to be purchased from the store.

Snowballs with enchantment levels 4 and above have a chance to give an Icy Shard (+10 Snowballs will always give an Icy Shard as noted above), which can be combined with a Brilliant Fragment, also available on the store, to create the Brilliance Ice Prism.

- Part Two: Snowflake Crystals (Level 30+) -

If you use up all of your Snowballs from Frosterinerk, Wintrinerk will be more than happy to trade you a +1 Snowball for (10) Snowflake Crystals. Snowflake Crystals can only be acquired after a snowball explodes after attempting to enchant it.

- Part Three: Joyful Bundle (Level 30+) -

While Freeziman contemplates his existence as a talking snowman, he offers you a Joyful Bundle that you can pick up from him daily. Open the bundle to receive (1) [Event] Dye Bundle and (1) random buff scroll. Various types of buff scrolls can be acquired with many offering effects to all party members. If you have friends or Legion mates within similar levels and they have differing scrolls, try to group together to share the effects!
