[quote]In lieu of Holiday Tokens this year we are trying something different and giving everyone a variety of ways to stay busy during the holidays so we have baked our holiday themed rewards into a number of different events including The Artisan Festival, Krampus, and Tears of the Ice Dragon!  You can check out the schedule for those events below,[/quote]

I do not do Bods.  Krampus is/was just a repeat of last years.  And the Dragon of Ice is nothing compared to the event we had in Oct.  Only one page of possible rewards for it?  And they all really nothing I need or wish for.



Merry Christmas, have a safe holiday.

  • I'm disappointed.  Just going to leave it at that.

    The hedges would have been nice as the Christmas token gifts. (It would have also been nice if we could have had clippers work on them. Just think how cute a snowy goblin topiary would be.)

    And to top it all off... It's all shardbound....

    Yes. The book would be great for my no skill guys on other shards.  But they can't get 5 points.
  • First time ever with no Holiday gift. That’s really disappointing. 

    There wasn’t any new vet rewards this year either, right?

    My mistake. But we are still a year behind on those. These are when publish notes were shared and what publish they came with.

    Disappointed. Holiday gifts are a tradition :'(

    Even if you gave me coal this year it would love the deco
  • dvviddvvid Posts: 407
    As much as I don’t really mind not getting a holiday gift this year, I do think some quick gift could have been put together. I agree with you @psycho it could have been something like a piece of coal and that would still be nice.

    I think the rewards are the hedges but want us to spend time to get it. I think they should separate event reward and keep to tradition. Afterall, I think some players have habit of activating account end of year as I always did in the past.

    The decision to not have a holiday gift this year was in poor taste, lacked understanding of the community, and total fail on Broadswords part. 

    I am very disappointed in this decision.
