Details

  • Talking to Caravan Joe who is located at the Unicorn Statue of Dunbarton will put you on a waiting list to enter the event. After a little while, you will enter an empty version of Southern Sidhe Sneachta, where you will RP as yourself.
    • You will be removed from the waiting list if you enter a building or another map.
    • You will be unable to enter the event if someone assigned to the same instance is performing Commerce as the event begins.
    • In this role-play quest, you will retain only your equipment, excluding weapons and robes, and your stats will be significantly lowered. You will have neither your title nor your guild name, and anything that may have been in your inventory prior to entrance will be unavailable to you. You will be wearing a Waterproof Snowball Robe in your team's color and be equipped with two pairs of Snowball Gloves and 30 Snowballs.
      • All equipment is replaced with a stock version for the duration of the role-play quest. In addition, your Defense and Protection are locked to the base role-play values and remain unaffected by equipment during the role-play quest.
    • Your skills will be replaced with Rank 1 Defense, Evasion, and Ranged Attack, Rank 9 Campfire and First Aid, and Rank F Combat Mastery, Critical Hit, and Snow Bomb.
  • The event lasts 20 minutes. The goal is to do more damage to the opposing team's snowman or to destroy it by the end of the 20 minutes.
    • The top right corner shows how much time is left, as well as how much HP (in percentage) the snowmen have left.
  • There is a Trade Assistant Imp in the glowing circle behind each team's snowman that sells potions and other consumables for gold.
    • You cannot buy wares from the other team's Imp.
  • There is also a Floating Stone behind the snowman and on one side which flings Fireballs at the opposing team. The one on the side acts as a respawn point.
    • The Floating Stone on the side does not belong to anyone at the beginning. Whichever team first occupies the stone's circle for 15 seconds will be able to seize it.
      • It is possible to overtake the enemy's base. The last base captured acts as the respawn point.
        • In order to overtake the enemy's base, there must be more friendly players occupying the base. If there are equal or more enemy players, the base is still secure and the countdown does not start.
      • If the base's Floating Stone is damaged or has been destroyed, it will be replaced once the base is overtaken.
  • There are glowing circles around the Trade Assistant Imp and the Floating Stone on the side. The circles rejuvenate health, mana, and stamina to whichever team they belong to, and litter four stacks of 15 Snowballs each minute.
  • Defeating players causes gold to appear where they land. Defeating a Floating Stone affiliated with the opposing team rewards gold.
  • Each minute, all players receive 80 gold.
    • When there are 10 minutes left, all players receive 400 gold.
  • It takes approximately 5-7 seconds for players to respawn after being defeated.
  • If you remain idle for several minutes, you will be kicked out of the battlefield and forfeit any rewards.
  • Talk to Caravan Joe after a round to receive your reward.
    • Winning the snowball fight nets 251,000 EXP, 10,900 gold and a Caravan Joe Gift Piece.
    • The losing team will get 105,700 EXP and 4,200 gold.
  • The "Join 5 Snowball Fights" quest is given each day at
    7:00am PST
    100
    upon logging in.
    • You may also receive this quest by changing channels after
      7:00am PST
      100
      .
    • If you press the quest complete button after
      7:00am PST
      100
      the next day, you will not get the quest for that day even if you log back in.

Tips

  • Upon entering, immediately load Snow Bomb and occupy your nearest team's Floating Stone to the side. However, it should be noted that Snow Bomb not only takes MP to cast, but also to maintain. Keep this in mind as you fight.
  • Pick up as much as gold as possible. You'll need the supplies for the battle.
    • Be generous and donate once in a while. The combination of the two efforts make it worthwhile.
  • Whenever possible, obtain a Movement Speed 60% Boost Potion (10 min). It provides a dramatic boost in speed, is inexpensive, and lasts for half the battle.
  • Use Zero Shot against enemies. It helps keep the enemy stunned and prevents them from running away.
  • If attacking with Snow Bomb, try to go as near as the target as possible to prevent them from evading it.
  • Assist a Snow Bomber or the Floating Stone by pelting the enemy with regular snowballs to prevent them from evading their attacks.
  • If playing defensive, stay in the circle right behind the Snowman, as it rejuvenates health once in every while. Also, use Emergency Escape Bomb Bs to blow off anyone surrounding you or the Snowman.
  • If playing offensive, take out the Floating Stone with a Gold Dragon Bugle, and then use Strange Snowball Scrolls or Rag Doll Mercenary Scrolls to finish off the Snowman.
    • The Gold Dragon's Meteor attack is very powerful, but only against the Floating Stone. It is not very effective against the Snowman.
    • The Strange Snowball is essentially a Blinker but only with Beholder Beam Attack, which is useful for offense thanks to its defense/protection piercing abilities. It is also untargetable. However, it only lasts long enough for two attacks.
    • Rag Dolls are basically melee soldiers. Though they can maul the Snowman and are inexpensive, they are highly susceptible to Snow Bombs and Emergency Escape Bomb Bs.
  • Campfires can be used to evade the Fireball attacks casted by the Floating Stones. Once the Fireball is released, make your way to the other side of the campfire.
  • Do not summon mercenaries without a target in sight. This will waste its duration.
