Happy Holidays from the City of Heroes!
And for once the Heroes and Villains have something to crow about this time of the year!
For starters the 2009 Winter Event has begun, and it starts with a couple of presents. Badges, fuzzy earmuffs, a present to give and a present for yourself. All the usual niceties from Winters not-long ago. The candy canes, the mystery gifts scattered all over Paragon City and the Rogue Isles, the Ski Chalet in Pocket D, saving Baby New Year from the red caps, the optional Halo package (only for those who can use auras, though), you can even chuck snowballs during this time!
This time around, though, you get someone different. Yes, the Winter Lord - the Giant Snow-Monster - will be back, but did you know he had a boss? Yes, if you defeat the Winter Lord, you and everyone in your group will then get to take on LORD WINTER!
Sound fun? Well enjoy it while you can because this festive event goes from December 15th 2009 to January 5th, 2010.
The second seasonal surprise from the all-mighty gods of Paragon City and the Rogue Isles is just as good.
FREE CHARACTER TRANSFERS!
No, this isn't a joke.
Let's suppose you have a hero in one server universe that you want to move to another one. Normally that would cost you some real-time money. But now for the rest of December and all through January of 2010, you can move that hero or villain to any other server FOR FREE.
There ARE some limitations to this. There is a cap to the number of times you can transfer a character, and they will lose access to all supergroup allegiances, so be very careful about this process.
This offer only lasts from December 15th, 2009 until January 31st, 2010, and then after that it will once again cost you some real-time monies.
So what are you waiting for?
Last one down the slopes is a melted Frostling!
