Winter Event Badges

Recommended Posts

Frozen Fury: defeat the Winter Lord.  Gather team of 6+, open presents, defeat any winter horde that spawn from naughty present. Hope for him to spawn, search map and defeat him

 

Cold as Ice: defeat Lady Winter in the mission from Father Time in Ski Chalet.  Note: only need to defeat her once, but the mission can be farmed for winter horde and tuatha defeat badges.  Running mission again lets you choose another reward from the reward table. Run up to 5 times for all rewards.   Pro tip: you may want to run this mission 5 times for the rewards rather then Baby New Year as Baby New year is a rescue/escort mission.   Update: door sitters will get this badge even if they do not engage her in battle.

 

Cold Warrior: defeat 100 winter horde

 

Lord/lady of Winter: form a league of 12+ and LFG queue into Lord of Winter event. Fight the Lord of Winter, defeat his guardian 3 times then defeat him.

 

Crystalized: win either baby new year mission or lady winter mission and select this reward.  Can also be purchased with candy canes

Frosty: see Crystalized

Joyful: see Crystalized

Miraculous:  see Crystalized

 

Gift Getter: receive a duplicating gift from another player if you don't already have it, alternatively go present hunting.

Gift Giver: give the duplicating gift to another player if they don't already have it

 

Toy Collector: collect 200 presents, note: clicking a present only counts for you and not teammates.  You will also receive Winter Horde Gladiator badge.  Protip: do NOT camp a spawn point for a present, it will not respawn. defeating any winter horde will help it respawn faster, but they will eventually despawn on their own. Protip 2: you do need a team clicking presents and defeating the snowmen to spawn Winter Lord, but once that is done you are better off soloing this badge as teammates clicking presents does not count towards your badge.  Also this is the only way to get the Winter Horde gladiator badge so if you are a badge hunter looking for them all, you have to get this one.

 

 

Longbow reservist/Jetsetter, Cold Front, Gifted, Frostbitten and Festive: these are the old login badges from past winter events. Obtain them via redeeming candy canes at the vendor in the Ski Chalet.

 

Toothbreaker:  defeat Snaptooth 5 times. He is the boss guarding baby New Year. So you need to do that mission 5 times.  Pro tip: you have to escort baby New year out of the mission....which means 5 missions to get this badge. OR: you can defeat Snaptooth, log out to reset the mission and defeat him 4 more times. You also get Red Cap gladiator badge.  I find the mission reset preferable to escorting Baby New Year out then speak to Father Time again and again again.  Running the Lady Winter mission multiple times for all rewards is better. Also if you somehow do not get Toothbreaker during Winter Event you can also get it in Spring Event.

 

Update: Lowbie doorsitters can get Toothbreaker even if they are not actively fighting Snaptooth.

 

Pro tip: in the Baby New Year mission: to get the key you only need to defeat the Winter Horde Group that has the Winter Guard in it

Is the Winter Lord trial the most efficient way to farm Candy Canes? Does it have diminishing rewards on Candy Canes?

Were the Gift Getter/Giver badges changed to The Gift That Keeps Giving badge?

Gift Getter you receive when you get the Duplicating Gift.  Once you have it, you have 10 minutes before it expires to pass it on to someone that doesn't have it. Then you get the gift which keeps giving badge.

I'm not yet 100% convinced. If you have a team together and run repeated winter lord trials, probably. 

 

But if you are spending time putting the team together each time as people depart and then fighting through the WL and the guardians with the usual pick-up group challenges where not everybody understands that fighting the WL when the guardian is up is pointless-- I think there may be a better way, depending on your character.

 

My tank can beat the lady winter mission in a few minutes. Might take a little longer including finding the door. I can do that four times at 5 candy canes each faster than I usually can get a league together and then fight the whole winter lord trial.  Have to have pretty good resistance, though. She hits through defense WAY too well.

Meant to ask has the vidiot maps team made any maps for any of the PVP zones for Holiday present hunting?

 

Well if not then I am pleased to say that an old project of mine that I didn't get to finish thanks to NCSoft is done.  Back in the first era of CoH, presents DID spawn in the PvP zones.  I was plotting out locations and creating maps when NCSoft's announcements made me stop.

 

Well now, they are complete.  Presents do spawn in Bloody Bay, Siren's Call and Warburg, but they do NOT spawn in Recluse Victory. I turbo flew with after burner through Recluse Victory to refresh my memory and saw no presents in that zone at all.

 

Now....why hunt for presents to get Toy Collector badge in a PvP zone? 

 

Simple answer: Why not?  Think of it as more challenging and fun then being a level 50 cruising through Kings Row or Mercy Island. 

 

Better answer: don't forget there is a badge for spending an hour in each of the pvp zones, BB, Siren, WB and RV.  BB/Siren/WB have plaques for redside history badges.  Also each zone was expanded to have 8 map badges, plus accolade for all 8 and 5 merits.  Also there are other badges to get such as Gunner for taking down a firebase and getting your shivan shard after you visit the meteors of Bloody Bay.

 

See if you can patrol in BB, Siren and WB for a temp power from each zone.

 

Also  if you do a mission in the zone you just might get a badge also....

 

Also if there is one thing in this game that needs some stimulation.....it IS PvP. Ever since issue 13 changed PvP and drove off many PvP players, PVP has been almost extinct, imo.

 

So without further ado, I give a shout out to Vidiotmaps for making the new maps with all 8 exploration badges, and I now present to you maps for Bloody Bay, Siren, and Warburg that also show icons were you should find a present.

 

First up: Bloody BayBloodyBayHolidayandMapbadges.jpg.f69312f97ca8d6dc8fbf64b13c72c310.jpg

 

Then Siren's Call, also some of the icons represent a present that is atop a building

And finally, Warburg. WARNING, WILL ROBINSON! DANGER, DANGER! The BLUE present icons represent presents that are IN THE TUNNELS.  The Green colored ones are on the surface.  Whether you choose to enter the tunnels......I leave that to you.

Disclaimer: I have done what I can to as precise as possible with the placing of the gift icons. As always, when gift hunting in any zone,  you should go into game options and turn the music volume to zero and the sound FX up.....then head for the icon area and listen for the sound of the glowie......

Want to find presents in Khalisti Wharf? Here are all the ones I found. As always I tried to be precise but just go to the icon on the map and listen for the glowie if you don't see it.KhalistiWharfHolidaypresents.jpg.6b9175730af0b74361efc110c7bb0eb3.jpg

If I got the Gift Getter badge before understanding how it works and didn't get the Gift Giver badge, is it still possible for me to get the Gift Giver badge?


@Super Whatsit

Superbase passcode (Excelsior) is "passcode-6475"

 

It's all a Nemesis plot.  But not everything is a Nemesis plot!

Yes, just get another duplicating gift and pass it on before it expires

The way I got the 200 presents was to make a lap around Grandville following the Beaches clockwise. you only have to do it once a day, then do something else, jsut do it when you log in or off.
