Happy Holidays Heroes! 

Abe the snowman has come to town early this year in attempts to avoid the Holiday Goblin of Doom and bring gifts and cheer to all of Glenfort. Make sure to visit Abe early this month for a special lockbox and daily quests of gifts!

Unfortunately we all know that the Holiday Goblin will eventually catch up with him and steal all of his presents once he finds out what Abe is doing! When the time comes help Abe find the Holiday Goblin and take back the presents for Glenfort's citizens. Defeating the Holiday Goblin will earn you ornaments that can be traded in for holiday items like pointy peppermint stick weapons, armored ugly sweaters and other great holiday items!

Throughout the event, Abe will be giving away special ornaments to trade in for an exclusive 2015 holiday item for your help in getting back his presents!

Look for sales on items throughout the holiday event as well to get the upper hand on the Holiday Goblin.

Winter Holiday event includes:

  • New Tier 19 Staff!
  • New Tier 19 Main Hand Axe!
  • New Tier 19 Two Hand Axe!
  • New Exclusive 2015 Helm!
  • New Holiday Vanity Helms!
  • Daily Login Quest of Gifts!
  • Unique Limited Time Background!
  • Additional Holiday Gift Lockbox filled with every holiday consumable and unique vanity items!
  • Stocked Holiday Gift Lockbox including all of last year's items!

Check out your wardrobe for most of the items available in this event! Some are still hidden until you unlock them yourself by visiting Abe the Snowman or purchasing them in his special lockbox.

Abe the Snowman

  • Abe the Snowman has two shops this year! One will appear early this month with special daily quests, unique vanity items and a lockbox that has all the holiday consumables in the game! The other will replace the first one with holiday items that can be purchased with Red Ornaments.
  • Abe will be setting up his shop near The Frozen Vale where he find to be the most comforting place in Glenfort.

Holiday Goblin of Doom

  • The Holiday Goblin will appear in 7 different locations around Glenfort!
  • The Holiday Goblin will also appear in raids throughout the event! He will only appear during his active time but this allows guilds to keep to their raiding schedules during the event. Note: He will not appear in Gobblin Goblins or any onslaught raids / raid phases.
  • The Holiday Goblin has a ton of goodies in his pack so be sure to defeat him when you see him! He drops a range of items from gems, shards, valor, potions, elixir and special currency for gear!
  • The Holiday Goblin isn't looking for a fight, he just wants all the presents to himself! He will try to flee combat so be sure to attack him fast and hard! He will occasionally throw some heavy attacks so be cautions during your encounters!
  • The Holiday Goblin drops Red Ornaments after he is defeat which can be turned in at Abe's Holiday Gift Shop for new gear!

There are multiple stores and events going on during December. Please read the schedule carefully. There is a special store open from December 3rd to 23rd then it switches over to the Holiday Store you are used to seeing. Abe will be giving out presents at the Special Store next week.

Yes, we adjusted the odds so that he will appear at the same rate in raids as he would in the 7 regions.

Correct, he will not appear in onslaught raids or onslaught phases. He will count for RPP.

Hunting HoliGob in Raids

If you can "One Shot One Kill" Mobs, in a Raid that drops Materials you need (VG, Zuur, Vallus, WoFfle, Helion, Overseer), that can be a good alternative to tracking him through zones you don't care about. Especially if you just switched Guilds and need the Guild Loyalty. This is also nice for low level characters that cannot enter higher maps like Fellmarsh.

Note: Remember to password any Guild Raids you do not plan to finish. Start the raid several minutes before he appears so you do not have to wait on the Raid to start.

If you don't need Guild Loyalty, you can merc a raid just before HoliGob appears.

If you want Vile Haunches (for Bacon Recipe), Essence and Flux, VG is a good Raid to hunt HoliGob.

(Edit: does not appear in Onslaught Phases is confirmed) Like Lucky, does not appear during Onslaught so Crypt, KFS & LEGS not good Raids to hunt HoliGob.
