Frostfell is coming, the vulrich is getting fat! Please do put a copper in the old gnome's hat![1]

OverviewEdit

It's Frostfell Time in Norrath! Song fills the air, Norrathians bustle to purchase that special gift, to fix their feasts. Those Frostfell Elves are out in force to bring cheer and gifts of the season to one and all.

Frostfell is the Live Event that begins in December. While in-game, click on the EQ2 radial button and chose the Calendar to check the exact dates. It was fist introduced to EQ2 in 2005.

No matter what you do, make sure you visit Santa Glug every 24 (real-world) hours. He has gifts Frostfell gifts for you!

Some Frostfell quests take place in your home city but many occur in a special holiday zone: Frostfell Wonderland Village.

To learn more about the zone's history, to see a map, read a bit of history, and get some general tips and tricks, see the Frostfell Wonderland Village page.

The event has numerous quests, a purple "shiny" collection, races, achievements, special crafting materials, and more, all described below.

New and returning players should consult the Annual quests section below first, as many of the quests inside the Frostfell Wonderland Village are unlocked only after the first quest listed there is complete.

Frozen TokensEdit

Like most other events in EQ2, Frostfell quests often reward a special, event-only currency.

The Frostfell currency is Frozen Token of E'ci. To see how many tokens you have, press C (while logged in) to open the Character window and click on your Currency tab.

The tokens can be exchanged within the Frostfell Wonderland Village for valuable items like attractive armor and weapons (with stats), a variety of ice and holiday-themed house items, and more.

You must to complete at least one quest in The Icy Keep that awards the tokens to speak to the main Frostfell merchant, Gerbi Frostfoot. Once you do, you can see all of the goodies he has to offer. He carries more items to buy with tokens than other goblin merchants in the Wonderland Village.

There are many way to earn tokens, but there are also so many things you may want to buy!

  • Token-Earning Tips:

Over the years, veterans players have developed two common strategies:

  1. The Icy Keep - solo or group quests are offered for the instance, but the number of lootable tokens in the group version is far superior during the group version of the Mission Improbable series quests.
  2. Raiding the Gifty Storehouse - before you turn in the solo quest you can trade extra gifts in your inventory to Gixen on the dock in the Enchanted Lands (Hint-hint: you can re-enter the instance for the quest and greedily gather extra gifts over and over).

Travel to Frostfell Wonderland VillageEdit

What's New?Edit

While "regulars" who lurk and edit this wiki do their best to keep this page up-to-date, sometimes the game development moves faster than we do. Please add any new quests you discover to this section. New quests are not added to the game every year, so if this section seems behind, check the Official Forums for announcements. If we reach another year with new quests, the quests and info once found in this section will be moved in favor of what's actually new.

New in 2015:

In 2015, only players who purchased the Terrors of Thalumbra expansion can complete a new series of quests. The quests are centered around a narrative about Maldura.

The series begins with Jarith Icewing at ( 334, -24, -1513 ) /waypoint 334.31, -23.75, -1512.75 and includes:

More recipes were added in 2015 too, including icy-themed triangle building blocks, some appearance gear, and a variety of house items (including a new style of window). New gifts are given by Santa Glug too.

See the official announcement for more details.

Players on the Time Locked Expansion (TLE) servers do not have the full event unclocked yet in 2015, but some Frostfell-themed items can be purchased in cities near the same locations entrance to Frostfell Wonderland Village on regular servers.

Annual QuestsEdit

Quests in this section are repeatable only once per year, though a few sub-quests in the series may be repeatable and are noted as such.

To Unlock (most) QuestsEdit

Before you read on, there is one quest required to unlock almost all of the other quests within the Wonderland Village!

...With apologies to Charles Dickens

The storyline from Frostfell 2006 centered upon the NPC, Mr. McScroogle.[2] 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 seek out Mr. McScroogle on an island at the back of the village, talk to him, and are transported to his home AS HIM (in an illusion form). Therein begins the quest, A Frostfell Favor, where players were visited by thee three ghosts of Frostfell past, present and future. Repeatable annually.

Giftgiver Dilemma SeriesEdit

First appeared in 2009

The quest, Raiding the Gifty Storehouse, is a hoarders dream come true, as one can easily obtain mass quantities of Frozen Tokens. See the section about Frozen Tokens (above) for a strategy hint. The quest itself is repeatable every 18 hours, but is in this section because you must repeat the Giftgiver's Dilemma each year first.

Saving Frostfell SeriesEdit

Repeatable Quests (Multiple Times per Year)Edit

Quests in this section are repeatable at least two times while the event is live. Some may be unlimited.

Gigglegibber's Work QuestEdit

A Gigglegibber's work is never done (by a Gigglegibber). The goblin who gives this quest will be near the magical wardrobe used to enter the Wonderland Village, usually under a large Frostfell tree.

  • The first time this quest is completed, the reward is a Frostfell Tree.
  • Subsequent completions offer a choice of a Frostfell Wreath, lighting options for your tree, Frozen Tokens of E'ci, and more!
  • It is worth repeating this at least a few times each year, as the rewards have changed over the years, with new items often offered with each repeat. For example, [need the tapestry name] was offered in 2010.

First appeared in 2005

These quests scale every five levels, and can be repeated ten times per level by those who who love them; the secret? Change your level by visiting a Chronomancer.

Candy Grab RacesEdit

First appeared in 2006

The races are held in two locations and have identical rewards, but those aiming to complete the holiday achievement must visit both locations. It rewards Frozen Tokens and/or various house items and appearance gear, depending on how successfully you gather candy. Those who really work at it can even gain a special title.

Tradeskill QuestEdit

Though there's just one crafting quest, it's very rewarding! This quest can be repeated daily. It is a great way to gain tradeskill XP and level. In addition, those who have tradeskill level 90+ can buy lore recipes to craft keys and get Frostfell Crafting Stations to use all year long!

First appeared in 2011

Those who love crafting and decorating houses love Frostfell. Because this aspect of Frostfell is so complicated, most of the info resides on dedicated pages.
