Frostfell Wonderland VillageEdit
Some of the Frostfell quests take place in your home city but many occur in a special holiday zone called Frostfell Wonderland Village. Frostfell received a makeover in 2013 and a Map of the revamped zone is available here: New Wonderland Village Map.
There is a magic closet located in each of the cities which you click on to Frostfell Wonderland Village:
- The Qeynos Province District entrance appears in Qeynos Harbor where The Clock of Ak'Anon usually stands. ( 736, -21, -41 ) /waypoint 736, -21, -41
- The City of Freeport entrance appears in West Freeport near The Arena. ( 231, -4, -41 ) /waypoint 231.32, -3.52, -41.00
- The Kelethin entrance appears in the Greater Faydark inside the city near Jysolin's Pub ( 224, 112, 399 ) /waypoint 224, 112, 399
- The Neriak entrance appears near the Dockside Markets ( -99, 10, 275 ) /waypoint -98.85, 10.19, 275.48
- The Gorowyn entrance appears in on the bottom floor on the walkway around the pool ( 2594, 6, 1192 ) /waypoint 2594, 6, 1192
- The Haven entrance appears beside the mailbox
- The New Halas entrance is in the middle of town ( -6, 147, -36 ) /waypoint -6, 147, -36
Snowball Fights and More!Edit
Scattered about the city zones you will find harvestable stacks of snowballs (on about a 1-minute respawn timer). Gather them to get a pile of 20 Snowballs (which stack in 200s now). When you target a mob, or another player, and use the snowball you will throw a snowball at the target causing them to run one of several different animations including shaking a fist at the thrower or being knocked down! Get your guild together for a Frostfell party and have a snowball fight contest!
Or if you prefer something a little more than a snowball, you can craft a Sturdy Fruitcake to pitch at your fellow Norrathians. A more hefty hit to the face, these fruitcakes will cause the player (or NPC -- try one of each on your favorite city guard!) to fall to the ground in shock.
Many of the Frostfell quests reward you with a special currency Frozen Token of E'ci which may be exchanged with Frostfell merchants for special holiday rewards. Frostfell Merchants can be found at the following locations:
- Gerby Frostfoot -- ( 178, -36, -1312 ) /waypoint 178, -36, -1312
- Giggawat Gigglegibber -- ( 140, -9, -1240 ) /waypoint 140, -9, -1240
All of the Frostfell holiday recipes require the use of special crafting stations. The regular stations in your guildhall, house, or home town will not work for creating these festive items.
However, there is a way you can obtain these special crafting stations for your house so you can craft Frostfell items year-round!
To acquire the Frostfell crafting stations you must first craft a cheery key, a festive key, and a merry key. To be able to scribe the recipes for these keys requires a level 90+ tradeskill and the recipes are sold by Ginneldarf Gigglegibber in the Frostfell Decoration Committee: Permafrost! quest instance. The keys open a chest of the same type, for instance, a cheery key would open a cheery chest. It is also important to note that only one of each chest will be up at a given time.

|A Frostfell Favor||2006||...With apologies to Charles Dickens
The storyline from Frostfell 2006 centered upon the NPC, Mr. McScroogle. In Qeynos Harbor, West Freeport, Haven, and Kelethin, players would visit the giant Frostfell Tree and find a magic wardrobe. As in Narnia, they would step through (click) the wardrobe to be transported to the Frostfell Wonderland Village!
Players would then seek out Mr. McScroogle on an island at the back of the village, talk to him, and be transported to his home AS HIM (in an illusion form). Therein would begin the major quest for the season, A Frostfell Favor, where players were visited by thee three ghosts of Frostfell past, present and future. Repeatable annually.
