Christmas Defender Events

  • 4 years ago

The Blight of the Unseen Update also brings a set of new events for the end of the year. Take advantage of week long buffs, a new Attendance event full of valuable prizes and a unique prize, and battle against the Fomors with the return of the Christmas Defender Event!

Christmas Defender Event

The Fomors are back for our sack of gifts, and there's only one way to fight them off: With pistol emplacements and snowballs. That's right, the classic Christmas Defender Event has returned!

Join up with a party and head to the Christmas Defender Battle in Hoarfrost Hollow, where you'll set aside your silly swords, bows and magic staves and take up battle Tower Defense style. Use the boxes scattered around the area to pick up one of three randomly generated turrets, each with it's own unique function. Place them along the trench and let them pelt the oncoming monsters with blast after blast.

You can also use Snowballs, gathered around the area, to damage and freeze the Fomors in place. Just be careful: While the Fomors won't go after you, your non-snowball weapons will be useless in this area and the Fomors have one goal, destroying the sack of presents at the end.

Defeat all the waves and receive a 2016 Christmas Coupon. You can get one coupon per day from the Christmas Defense battle, another six coupons by completing all of your Daily Missions for the day and three more by collecting 2016 Gift Box Coupons by destroying objects in any battle quest and trading them into the Exchange Shop. There's plenty of amazing rewards for you in the Christmas Coupon Exchange Shop, including Merc Potions, Knit Caps and a most adorable little buddy, the Santa Bear!

Mysterious Power Event

The Strange Traveler has gotten his paws on something new and unique, a necklace of great power, but one that takes time to grow to full power. Every day that you login to Vindictus, the power of the necklace will grow stronger, but if you fail to do so, the power will wane, reducing its potential. Stay with it, and you'll find yourself with a necklace granting nearly 2,000 ATT and more...
