Christmas 2017

12.12.2017 — The Christmas Event has begun!

02.01.2018 — Last chance to spend left-over presents.

09.01.2018 — Complete

Christmas is coming, with 3x XP from adventures!

And you know what that means! Much like in previous years, over the holiday season you’ll be able to get presents which you can use to buy special items in the shop.
You can get those presents by (1)
— Collecting Christmas bells, candy canes and gingerbread to produce baskets full of presents.
— Opening certain doors on the calendar
— Sending your explorers on treasure searches
— Completing Santa’s quest chain
— Completing Daily Quests
— Earning event achievements
— Completing the two Christmas adventures «The Stolen Sleigh» and «Save the Christmas Feast»
— Or by buying them in the shop

Just like last year, you can get great things through the Event Calendar (2). Every day, you can open a door and receive resources and buffs.
On special days, you’ll even get a special bonus if you’ve opened all the previous doors.

On certain days, you can get special adventures from the Event Calendar. These adventures will require you to help Santa make some unfortunate settlers happy (3) by delivering them some gifts (4) which you can produce in your provision house. These adventures will reward you with extra presents.

You can spend your presents in the Christmas category at the merchant! For the duration of the event, the rarity provision house and almost all of its recipes can be bought there (5).

Save the Christmas Feast 26+ Gems x 95 As you adjourn to your chamber for the evening, you find a letter lying on your bed with no indication who it’s from. Excited, you open it and read through the hastily written lines. It turns out the letter was written by Santa Claus himself!

Quartermaster Claus 13+ Presents x 695 It’s Santa himself! It may not be in his nature to fight, but he can transport your army around the world in the blink of an eye. He is known to make people wait between his random acts of kindness, though.
Improved Floating Residence 13+ Presents x 1495 Luxury apartments AT the sea are a thing of the past. Living luxuriously ON the sea is the flavor of the month!

Oil Mill Presents x 4495 After years of research and refinement, finally a building has been invented that is capable of producing a wide range of oils for all needs — the Oil Mill! From oiling tools, weapons and oil stones, to improving the performance and longevity of machinery, the oil mill has every settler covered. And yes, it can even help with preparing food and feeding livestock! You’ve never seen horses with such soft fur…
Arctic Iron Mine 18+ Presents x 295 Architects from the far north have brought you this plan for a brand new mine. It’s as effective as a normal level five iron mine, but with a chic arctic look. However, it collapses when the deposit is empty. So watch out!
Improved Watermill 13+ Presents x 595 Whether by witchcraft or science, the engineer behind the watermill has managed to enhance his already impressive invention.
It still generates water from nothing, but it does so a lot more efficiently than the original.
Deerstalker Hut 16+ Presents x 495 The home of an elite hunter who doesn’t need a specific spot to hunt, but travels all around the island for game. He’s known for his exceptional stealth and agility… some even say he used to be one of the royal archers before abandoning Capital Island to live a life of solitude, governed by his own rules and habits.
