Winter Event Badges

Recommended Posts

It's that time of year....

 

WINTER EVENT BADGES!!!

For many players of yore, the winter event brought not just presents and giant XP laden snow monsters, but also a time to team up and enjoy the company of others collecting badges and throwing snowballs.

 

This year all of those badges are returning, with a newcomer in the mix. In order to consolidate all of those badges in to one convenient place, I have included all relevant details about these badges and how to acquire them (in no particular order, though the badges that are purchased at Candy Keeper are highlighted yellow). All Winter Event badges are awarded to both Hero, Villain, and Praetorian, as well as Rogue & Vigilante alignment. Some of these badges are available year round as well, so I marked them with a red asterisks. If you keen eyes notice any errors, please feel free to let me know and I will edit the original post. Good luck badgers!

 

Newest Winter Event Badge this year! Awarded for logging in during the event.

Any tips on the ski runs? I never could get them during the old days.


I used to play under the handle @Purple Clown, back on Live. Now I play under @Lunchmoney

make a 2nd cheap build and 6 slots hurdle, swift, spring which ever power you feel like having to add more movement and jump speed.

the idea is to hard cap both. Easily achievable if you 6 slot those, w/out sb.

 

then you only need to practice.... a lot...

 

At least it's how I managed those badges.

Exactly what I did. Many attempts were made.

I don't know if this badge is supposed to have a progress bar, but it didn't for me (neither in Events nor Closest to Completion). It does award as expected.

 

Also, earning this badge awards the Red Cap gladiator.

It gets a lot easier to maneuver down the slopes when you're using a power that provides some air control, like Combat Jumping, Super Jump, Ninja Run, etc. From what I recall when the event first came out, it's because the slipping controls in CoH are a bit of a hack and mechanically are more like falling with style. So anything that lets you move around easier in the air will also let you move around easier on slippery surfaces. Or something like that.

I haven't tested this in any praetorian zones, does this mean they spawn gold side? 😅

Aye, they do.  I defeated quite a few while in Nova Praetoria last night.

As do Wiki writers (teasing @thunderforce!) Especially when they show up and announce "Hey, I can do this thing!  And did you know...etc"

Get a pocket Kin (or hope one is at the ski chalet) and have them use Inertial Reduction on you. Jump speed and control are actually the most important things to have when doing the slopes.

 

Use the mouse to steer, and know when you need to jump or turn before you have to. Having to constantly course correct on the fly is what messes up most runs!

Last night I did the Defeat Lord Winter event with a full league. We beat him normally with plenty of time to spare. Got the merits. But - no Lord of Winter Badge. Has this happened to anyone else?

From what I remember, in order to get credit for a badge your team (not league) has to do at least 10% of the damage done to the giant monster. When working as a league its important to try to balance the teams to make sure that each team does enough damage to get the badge.

 

I know in a previous Homecoming patch they removed this requirement from Jack and Eochai in Croatoa because they would often damage each other enough to prevent anyone from getting the badge, but I'm not sure if that change was also applied to other giant monsters. And if it was, it's possible they forgot to change the holiday event monsters.

NOT 100% but l think alignment has messed with it before. Hero or villain...

Yes they do, so do the presents. I mapped the Praetorian zones last year along with Kallisti Wharf 🙂

EDIT: in fact I just got done expanding the Kallisti Map  I made into a bigger and better version that shows:

1. the map badge

2. The 2 plaques and 3 wall plaques

3. All holiday present locations that I have found

4. the 6 locations where Eochai/Jack would spawn during Halloween.

One of the 5 i found is at 1309/15.9/922.7

 

3270.8/102.8/2714.3   7204.4/46.8/3580.3  7135.9/56.7/2649.5  5873.6/97.6/2107.7  these 4  i had mapped already plus the one I listed above

 

New ones thanks to your coordinates: 1867.0/57.5/3607.1, 404.3/66.1/4053.1, 5783.7/47.2/4698.6

 

So total of 8:  3 wall plaques plus one on the ground on the west island,   1 ground plaque and 2 wall plaques on the east island,  and one on the ground on the center island.

 

Has anyone found any other ground or wall plaques in Kallisti Wharf?  

If you have found one not listed above,  please PM me a screen shot of it with your map open on the screen shot along with coordinates.  I'll check it out and add it to the map I've been working on. 

 

Thanks in advance!

Judging by the numbers and positioning of the plaques,   I suspect there is still one on the eastern half that has yet to be discovered.

 

4 on the west island,  1 in the center island, and only 3 on the eastern?  Feels like there should be a 4th over there.

8 is the magic number for most things in game.
