So this event gives ornaments only in two ways? By christmass on time when you have to be just loged or from only battle quests. Whats with players who have reached already all quests and got none? . I was even checking with my low lvl character if its true and yes got ornaments only on quests battle from destroy objects . That means my 95 lvl character can count only on christmas on time ornaments xD . That is just sad

    I thought you just needed to destroy objects, quests or not.

    If that's not the case, it probably means any battles that are part of quests and not just fillers that have none (i.e Golden Gnoll Leather). As far as I know, this only doesn't count for Traces Of Battle since it's not a real battle.

    And if THAT'S not the case, then at the very least, if you haven't been playing long, you might have a plethora of side-quests you can do if you uncheck the hidden quests box in the quest menu.

    It drops in Donegal -> I have tried Lagho and White Bear but nothing -> went to lvl 95 locations and got them by destroying environment, crates etc.

    They dropped in Berb/Plains when I ran last night. They don't seem to have a great drop rate, though. Not anything like the last time when I was swimming in the buff items by the end.

    Hoarfrost is bad on both sides. Smashed everything and got only one over multiple runs.

    The drop rate on them is ridiculously low. Seeing how theres an expiration date on the cakes and such from mysterious traveler, they should be raining from the sky with every step. Because they are literally of zero value to players after said date. But they do drop everywhere - i got one in Braha from breaking nails.

    Still, the drop rate makes the event not worth bothering with.

    I dont know why people are trying to farm the ornament. You only get pots from it, aside from the server wide decorating part. If you just play normally, you can easily hand in ornaments over time to get free pots and decorate the tree at the same time. There is zero reason to farm the ornaments manually...its not like you get runes for turning in 100 ornaments or something.

    It's the challenge of completing the tree before Christmas. They gave us 12 days to get it done, but it's day 4 now and we're only around 10% complete.

    It was a server wide announcement.

    You really can't farm these. A full day of farming and I got 2? So for all you title farmers you just have to hope everyone is afking/getting those 5 a day. But I highly doubt it since folks tend not to farm titles on alts... (And the 3 seals aren't worth the 3 hrs of afk.)

    People are probably hoarding to turn them in at the last minute. But its odd that the requirements for an event like this would be high.
