Event: Christmas Event // AvatarMC Discord Direct Link

Christmas Event Hub

Season's greetings and happy holidays! You know what time of year it is, ladies and gents, and it's not just the time to start putting Mariah Carey and Wham on repeat everywhere you go. Keep reading to get the breakdown of this year's event!

To get started, speak with NUKTUK, HERO OF THE SOUTH!

Due to a miscalculation in a highly classified quantum physics experiment, Nuktuk is enjoying the sights of each bending capital. All at once. While we let the big brains of the operation figure out the hows, feel free to enjoy the fact that he can teleport you to and from our Christmas event.

Limited Time Cosmetics Direct Link

Wanting to dress up as Santa and needing a fancy hat cosmetic to complete the ensemble? We've got you covered. Check out the store to purchase these festive delights. If you want to dress as a reindeer, we have that too - minus any judgment you may or may not deserve.

The Wonderland Direct Link

The Wonderland is the main hub of this event, offering plenty to get you in the festive mood. Complete activities located in or around this area to earn snowflakes - you can use these to buy heads and cosmetics from our vendors!

If you need help getting around the event, /nav is your friend.

Presents Missing Direct Link

It's five in the morning, and the parents of this little town have been woken up by their overeager children (who needs alarm clocks anyway?). Disaster strikes, however, with screams reaching decibel levels previously thought impossible. Why, you ask? Their presents have gone missing!

Explore the cave entrance and locate the town's missing presents before we need to call in a doctor over a mass case of tinnitus. Take a complementary pair of earplugs and head on into the Christmas Dungeon!

The Castle Direct Link

Ascend the stairs to the Castle, and prepare for a boss fight. Defeat its keeper to earn a reward. However, if fighting isn't your thing, you can always try the dropper on for size.

Activities List Direct Link
  • Christmas Tree Parkour - Get to the top of the tree and claim your snowflakes.
  • Frosty the Snowman - Parkour up Frosty and earn some snowflakes.
  • Snowball Arena - Fight your friends with snowballs in this Free-For-All arena. (Best results for this gamemode are with FoV set to 'Quake Pro')
  • Workshop Maze - Head through the twisty maze for a reward. (Optional: Find the children and reunite them with their mom!)
  • Snow Maze - Make it to the end for your reward. Ball of string is optional. No minotaurs in this one, we promise. They don't like the cold.
  • Castle Dropper - Fall into the water at the bottom without hitting any blocks to win.
  • Ice Cave Dropper - Take the ski lift to this dropper, and make sure not to hit any blocks or you won't make it to the bottom.
  • Helper Hunt - Gao is setting up an event, and needs his friends! Find him to get started on tracking them down.
  • Christmas Dungeon - Enter the cave and track down the town's presents!
  • Castle Miniboss - Defeat the keeper of the castle!

Vendors Direct Link

Some friendly elves are here to sell some Christmas goodies. Or just give you puppy dog eyes until you buy something, your choice. Just remember these poor folks don't have an elf union.

Capture the Flag Direct Link

The Club Penguin extension has been removed (tragic, I know), but you can still play the Capture The Flag mode we introduced with it. Just head on over to the hot air balloon you used to use to access the Club Penguin hub, and it'll take you there for some festive fun.

And that's all for now, folks! Keep your eyes peeled for the next blog post. Or don't. Peeling your eyes is bad for your health.

AvatarMC Soon™ - Issue 94: Spooky Times are Here again...

2021-11-01 19:00:00 +0000 UTC by QuietDove

Welcome one and welcome all to another spooktacular edition of the AvatarMC Halloween event. This is the final time we will see this version of the event, so enjoy it while you can!

You can experience the terror right now by visiting the warp areas in you capital.

Midnight in Gaipan Direct Link

"Something is afoot in the usually sleepy village of Gaipan. The Festival of Sun Li is normally a time for celebration, for it marks a time when the spirits meet the living.

This time, something has gone horribly wrong. The benevolent spirits are no where to be seen. In fact, no one is to be seen, the town is nearly deserted. Let us pray that you don't meet the same fate..."

The dead have risen from the earth. Put them back where they belong, before you join them. They say that familiar faces have been spotted amongst the walking dead. Just who could they mean by that?

Candy, meant to be enjoyed by those at the festival, has been dropped all over the village. Gather as much of it as you can, you never know what rewards await you.

Each capital city has a hub where you can teleport straight to the event.

Ghost Island Direct Link

A seasonal quest returns this year.

When Watt's nephew goes missing on a deserted island, he enlists the player's help to find him. Tread carefully; unspeakable horrors happened here, and the spirits are restless. One more thing: try not to stare into the dark too long. The dark might stare back, and you'll find out what kind of thing goes bump in the night.

The Village Ghosts Direct Link

We also have a brand new quest for you to enjoy.

A simple delivery job looks easy enough, but not everything is as it seems...

Across The Bridge Direct Link

An unseasonably large pumpkin has grown across the bridge of Gaipan. No doubt that dark and evil forces are at work. Investigate this massive gourd and discover its secrets.

Inside you will find a new area for this year, Bwake's Maze of Horrors. Watch your sanity as you try to reach the end, ten candies await you if you do!

There's more to see in this area. The Great Pumpkin Hunt is exactly what it says on the tin. Seek out the hidden pumpkins and gain a reward.

There are two new achievements for the event for completing the tasks in this new area, Bwake's Maze of Horrors and The Great Pumpkin Hunt. Both offer 5 candy upon completion.

Cosmetics Direct Link

Spooky cosmetics are available once again. The merchant will be more than happy to give them to you, for a price of course.

All cosmetics from previous years are available, alongside three new ones!
