If it's December, you know it means a ton of holiday happenings in just about every MMO on the planet. Earlier this week, Perfect World Entertainment revealed all of the cheery activities that players can participate in throughout its stable of games including Neverwinter, Star Trek Online and more.


Winter Festival of Simril (December 20, 2018 - January 10, 2019)  The Winter Festival returns to Twilight Tor with new rewards and improvements to the fishing mini-game, aligning the system with the one introduced in the Sea of Moving Ice update. Fishing rods from previous winter events may be exchanged for motes of light, which are used as currency for new rod upgrades and other event items. Simril Lightcrafting has been updated to align with the new Professions system overhaul – players will find a vendor in Twilight Tor who will perform legacy lightcrafting tasks for equal or reduced material costs.

*NEW* Rewards include the Yeti Mount and the Winter Light Companion. Previous years Star of Fortune rewards - Winter Throne, Royal Sled, Winter Sled and Mimic Pet - have been moved to the Zen Market.

Lastly, keep an eye toward the starry sky this year… Something bright and wonderful may fall to the snow-covered landscape.

Star Trek Online:

Q’s Winter Wonderland (December 4, 2018 – January 17, 2019) Return to the wonderland derived from the mind of Q once again! Protect a race of sentient gingerbread cookies from the Snow-conian, cast a reel (or pound on the ice) to enjoy some Klingon ice fishing, take on the dreaded Kramp’ihri and his merry imps. As with previous years, completing events in the Winter Wonderland will allow Captains to earn rewards, including new sweaters and more! Don’t miss out on icy footraces as well for a chance to earn some Fek’ihri tech.  

Champions Online:

Attack of the Misfit Toys (December 13, 2018 – January 10, 2019)  Millennium City has been transformed into a winter wonderland! Beginning December 13th, Champions can visit Renaissance Center to view the splendor of the ornamented tree, visit the Toy Drive store and gather presents to collect special rewards from the Helper Elves. Champions can also battle Clarence, the giant teddy bear, and Black Harlequin, who has turned the abandoned foundry into a workshop to create deadly toys. All of these festivities will allow the defenders of Millennium City to unlock new, winter-themed costumes!


*NEW* Wonderland X’mas Carnival (December 20 – 27, 2018) X’mas has come to PWI! Visit the Wonderland Park during this week to participate in a series of events. This includes an opportunity to earn daily rewards from helping Santa Clause deliver gifts, the chance to summon and challenge the Darksnow Fang, an exciting parade filled with gift drops, and help a Gingerbread Bo turn its frown upside down. Help out Uncle Zhao and Santa at the Wonderland Castle for rewards like Homestead Decorations, Nebula Dust Orbs, Astrospira Pearls, War Avatar Packs, and more!  For additional details, please visit http://www.arcgames.com/en/games/pwi
