It is that time of year when everybody is getting ready to eat too much, drink too much and pick fights with family members. It is also time for MMOs to start transforming their virtual worlds into something festive.
Trion Worlds have already kicked off their six week, three phase world event in Rift. Known as “Fae Yule,” this is an epic in-game celebration that features fancy holiday hats, new quests, a grumpy mead-guzzling satyr, and other festive items.
But it’s not all candy canes and cocoa. Crucia, the Dragon of Air, seeks to ruin the festivities by enslaving the Fae anew, and it’s up to Ascended to crush her plans and save Fae Yule. Throughout the event, players can earn Unique Snowflakes, which can be redeemed for yule-inspired gear, a jolly corgi companion, and a lavish vaiyuu mount.
