2015 – Bag

There is no new mission or content this year apart from the new bag in the Item Store, which come in two variants; a personal bag and a party bag.

2013 – Krampusnacht

Work in progress…

Krampus

In all playfields ranging from Kingsmouth to The Carpathian Fangs, you can find entities called “Krampus” in several locations. It’s quite hard to not spot one of these guys when running around in one of those zones actually.

krampus_idle

When you fight them and get their hitpoints down to about 50%, they will run over to a specific location and create a portal. If you want to enter the portal, you must kill it before it goes through the portal itself and closes it.

krampus_portal

If you travel through the portal, you will end up in Niflheim. There are lots of Krampus enemies there, and if you kill all of the regular ones, a boss version will spawn at the centre of the arena up ahead.

krampus_adds

The Krampus boss is balanced around a full group. You can solo it if your gear and build is awesome, but a team of at least a few players is recommended.

krampus_boss

The Krampus boss will drop a dungeon mission upon death, that you can pick up, continuing the Krampusnacht event.

Hel

Hel is another boss that you can go up against. She must be summoned in Niflheim. This is done with specific summoning items that you need. There are 9 pieces in total. A Krampus in each zone will drop different parts and the Krampus boss with drop the last part.

More information about Feeding Hunger with Famine and how to summon Hel can be found here.

    WiP – lazy… lol

    • Vikestart

      I’ve been working on documenting the new mission and it’s quite long, that’s why xD

      • CultOfXtc

        Of course… you’re awesome. :D /sorry was sarcasm

  • parador

    As usual Vikestart, awesome guide and ridiculously quick on getting it up. Also thanks for the Winter Holiday script. Very useful!

    If you get time, you might wish to add Snowy Quetzal and Revenant Polar Bear to pets that drop from gift bags.

    There is also an Enruned Quetzal Bird that drops of the Shadowy Forest Vestige of Nameless Days.

    If you should need screencaps of the aforementioned pets, feel free to give me a holler in-game and I can summon for you to screenshot.

    • Vikestart

      Thanks! :) Both me and Nordavind have worked hard to get this out quick, considering we had to make everything from scratch.

      I’ll go ingame now and fetch images of the pets you mentioned :)

  • parador

    One more small correction: All 3 Wassailer outfits have a neck component.

    -yer annoying editor pal

    • parador

      And if ya get really bored, there are a list of eight or so items that can only be acquired from killing SuperHel repeatedly (culminates in the Horns of Krampus, and then Horns of Hel).

  • Littleskull

    You all do a great job with the guides and the walkthroughs… any chance we can get a walkthrough on the Hel Niflheim Dungeon?
