Snowfestivus 1/10. It's time to celebrate Snowfestivus! Do it right, and I'll help you make a Snowfestivus Log! We start with the Airing of Grievances. Those people upset me greatly. Give them a piece of my mind.
Kill 3 other players in the Battle Arena (PvP).
Snowfestivus 2/10. Acceptable. Now it's time for Dinner. Upgrading Gems gives off a great scent, which I use it for my cooking. Spice it up for me.
Upgrade Gems 20 times.
Snowfestivus 3/10. A fine job. Now, go forth and kill enemies and gather their blockiest bits for the entrail entrée.
Kill 500 enemies.
Snowfestivus 4/10. Dinner is served! While we eat, its time for the Feats of Strength! Prove you have the muscle to work the Forge!
Forge 20 items.
Complete Quests in Dungeons
Snowfestivus 5/10. That was easy. There are giant festive trees suddenly everywhere for some reason. Go show me you can take down the snowsquatches there. Meh, actually any dungeon will do.
Finish 20 dungeon quests.
Snowfestivus 6/10. Not bad! Snowflakes huh? Bet they'd come in handy to destroy an evil robot's fire shield someday. Nah, that's crazy talk. Now, do you have the strength to… destroy blocks!?! I doubt it!
Destroy 100 blocks.
Snowfestivus 7/10. You wonder why you're doing this? Keep wondering! I need glim, lots of fresh glim!
Obtain 1000 Glim, either by fishing or running over grass.

Finish 20 3-Star Dungeons (Shadow Tower is recommended, as each stage is 3-Starred).
Snowfestivus 9/10. Little problem. It a fine log, but no power. It needs a spark. This will be awkward, but you have to, well, die, to light it.
Get yourself killed either by Lava or another enemy; Respawn command does not count.
Save the Season 1/7 : Present Lairs are everywhere! It's never too late. We need to get a present!
Make a Marketplace Purchase
Save the Season 2/7 : Snowflakes are dropping from snowsquatches in those Present Lairs? Weird. You can craft your own Enchanted Snowballs at the Snowfest Table, but I'll give you a few if you get me a present. Get anything from the marketplace; there's always good stuff there.
Save the Season 3/7 : Good choice, but a bit...unfinished. I can whip this into a nice present if you heat up the forge for me.
Save the Season 4/7 : What happened? This is a terrible present! The Spirit of the Season is somehow missing! I can perform a ritual to understand what has happened, but I need some Inifnium.
Kill Flamotron Mk II
Save the Season 5/7 : With this ritual I see... Oh no! Dr. Darknik has sent a giant robot, the Flamotron Mk.II, to steal the Spirit of the Season! He's usually holed up in a spaceship in the Permafrost. Use Enchanted Snowballs to take down his shield. Take him out big time! Actually, just whale on anyone you see.
Make a G.R.Y.P.H 3000
Save the Season 6/7 : Flamotron Mk. II is using the Spirit of the Season as fuel to forge Darknik gears eh? If you get enough, I bet you could craft your own G.R.Y.P.H. 3000. What are you waiting for? Save the Season!
Save the Season 7/7 : You did it! You beat back Dr. Darknik's invasion and saved the season! Now everything is great again. My present is incredible. Nothing left to do but fish.
Valentines Day: Hellbugs in Love
How to get
Hellbugs in Love 1/9: We're under assault! Kill some invaders. Any monster will do actually. We'll talk more soon.
Hellbugs in Love 2/9: Did you actually kill invaders? I'm blinded by love, you know. You can get a nice Bashful Lovebug mount if you keep it up. I'm Cubepid, by the way, patron of blocky love. Build me a small yet tasteful monument to prove your true feelings.
Hellbugs in Love 6/9: Beautiful! Now we're going to embed this gem stuff into a stylish statuette. Mine some blue ore… Formacite will do. Anyone's cornerstone would look better with more sparkly blue things.
Hellbugs in Love 8/9: This is a wonderful present- how unique it is! But I was just testing you; love's actually not about the gifts. Open your blocky little heart to the world. Meet someone nice and get some lovin' off them.
Those nasties drop Q'bthulhu slices? An' there be graspy shadow hand lairs in me beloved Medieval Highlands? 'Tis a noble quest! We shall valiantly drive all these tentacles from the land. An' I will lend ye my sword to the cause! Bring me to yer realm to help. Start by gathering ore. Don't ask why, we must hurry!
...when a radio-like sound came out of nowhere: 'Help! Er, you can help, right? I'm stuck inside some sort of mining bot. This is my most desperate hour. Help me Trovian. You're my only hope. Smash some Steambot Drones to free me! We're stuck in a cave, building character through delayed grottofication. Get it? Ha!
Kill 50 Steambot Drones in the Underground Cursed Vale (Other locations such as Underground Haunted Isles and Dragonfire Peaks still counts towards this objective)
The plucky voice comes through the radio static. 'I guess I'm inside some other mining bot. It's really hard to tell which one from the inside! If you mine some formacite, I might be able to form a sight of where I am! Get it? Did you see what I did there? Say, I like you.'
The voice continues, happily oblivious to your needs, 'Oh! I hear spooky noises. And the lapping waves of the Drowned Worlds. And the echo of caves. Smash some Steambots here and soon I'll be free! And punch their miner buddies for me, would ya? Quick! Letâ€™s be pun-ctual about it! They're looking for something!'
'It sure is hot and cramped in here. I'm sure I will survive, but a few ground Crystallized Clouds sure would let me live a bit longer, if I'm lucky enough to be found by you. Seriously, I've got no children either, and how am I supposed to breathe with no heir?
'I'm in a Steambot Overseer! Right below the brain-bucket. I'm sure of it! You're in the Cursed Skylands anyways, right? Defeat some by chopping them off at the ankles! Haha! No seriously, I'll crawl out the leg-hole and tell you about their plot to find sun shards and enslave the universe.'
'These guys are really on the move. We're in the forest now. Hurry! Smash more Steambot Overseers and I'll be free. I read the manual for how to build these things once. It was riveting! But really, these robots are digging up everything looking for some kind of sun shard. I donâ€™t think they'll find it though, because they are pretty shady.
'Now I remember, I'm in a Gigas Minerbot! They drilled that into me actually, but I found it boring. Sorry, could've saved you some time. Time waits for no man, but I'm a little robot, and I don't want to rust in peace, so maybe we could hang out together after this?
'Those miners were up all night looking for some kind of sun shard. It never dawned on them where to find them though. We'll find out what they were up to in no time. But I always say that time flies like an arrow. Fruit flies like a banana. Anyways, let's mine our own business for a while'
You have a vivid image of shadowy creatures in the crisp white snow. They are searching for these Sun Sparks, and you know this should not be. You don't know why these thoughts are appearing in your head, but stopping the Shadows somewhere in the Permafrost is obviously your goal.
You hear faint and fragmented whispers. Oddly, this feels soothing. You make out the following: 'Sun Sparks - are... me. ...Aspects ... I think - Remember more... Gather... Sun Sparks... Magical Atoll in...Drowned World - using armor - Should not - Be - Searching. Hurry...'
With ten Sun Sparks in hand, you hear a clear, radiant voice calmly speaking inside your head. "Thank you. I've... been sleeping, I think. I can barely remember. Seek out the Wheel of Seasons in a humble hut in the Hub. I saved some ancient memories there. Speaking the words you find there will combine these fragments of me into something greater. Perhaps then I shall recall more."
The radiant being beside you speaks with an otherworldly and pure voice, 'I remember! Iâ€¦ I used to live in the Radiant Realm. I was a part of something...greater. Long ago I fought against the onslaught of the Shadows. But at some point, I fell. The world was destroyed. Shadows now hunt for remnants of the light, but to what purpose I do not know. They have sent a great mechanical monstrosity to infiltrate Neon City. It may have information."
'They seem to have just been an advance guard. The main invasion force are in the Drowned Worlds, in the Haunted Isles. This recipe is just a fragment of some sort of teleportation portal. If we can get enough of them, we may be able to go to where the Shadows came from, and stop this invasion. Not every Shadow will be carrying them, but enough will.'
There was no obvious information on that Darknik Warbot... but the Shadow Sight Helm it was carrying has some amazing properties! Looking through it, you can see something ominous in the distance. Something gigantic, labyrinthine, and terrifying. Great threat seems to emanate from it. 'That is where the great battle will take place,' the Sun-Touched Shimmerwing says, 'Clear a path to it. Destroy the defensive enemy clusters at the edge of the island'
'The lava blocks our advance, but I have a battle plan. The Shadows use necrotic bridges that do not appear for you. Defeating the guardians at the edges of the Atoll of Madness wreathes you with a swirl of shadow stuff. If enough Trovians do this, you shall seem as they do, and the bridges will work for you. A pathway shall form across the fires, and we shall take the fight to them!
The defensive enemies have some new weapons, if you desire to collect them. But you have done your part. If your peers persist, we shall find the path forward and take the battle to the Shadows' home. Rest for now, champion, but keep your edge. A reckoning will soon be due, by your hand.
Great stampin' horneytoads! I was minding my own beeswax, prospectin' a claim in the Desert Frontier, when a rootin' tootin' herd o' Archaeoceratops done stampeded my camp! You look mighty capable. How about lending a weathered old cube like me a hand?
Archaeoceratops used ta' stay home on their own range in the Saurian Swamp. If they were stuck in the desert, they'd like a cool shady place, like down in caves. Maybe if you clear some caves out o' critters, them dinos will leave us alone.
Well ain't that just the dangest. Scissorhands you say? And cupcakes? This is stranger than a Pemblock in a sphere. We need to conduct us a ritual to find out what's going on. Start with bones. Lots of bones.
Now to start ye olde ritual, we need us a clear head. The kind that only comes from a newly minted Patron. That shiny 1 Day Patron Coin I jist gave ya? Just pop it and you'll have a vision of what's causin' this dino ruckus. Besides, it's good for what ails ya.
Suddenly aware of so many new things, a ghostly vision appears. You see triceratops stomping on lollipops, and a huge toothy maw munching on gingerbread. This can only mean one thing: the dinosaurs have come for our baked confections! Candoria is under assault!
Tarnation, you showed them a thing or two. Now, I saw just as well as you did who is behind this whole mess. A great big T-rex. Or two. Or three. But you're gonna need to train off some of yer flab before yer gonna be ready fer that fight. Do some o those dungeons. The big ones.
Now there's a fine-looking chiseled block of a hero! Y'er ready for the fight o' yer life! They're in the Leafy Archipelago of the Drowned Worlds, or I don't know my biomes. Take the fight to him! Knock some sense into the big brutes an' put them dinos back in their place!
You did it! I'm rootin tootin happy about you saving my mining operation! Say, I'll share a bit of my stake if'n you'll just place a single commemorative block down right here for me to remember you by.
