    Winterfest Event FAQ

    What the Kang-Kung is Winterfest?
    Winterfest is our special Holiday event featuring a Winterfest Calendar that will give out daily quests and rewards! You must acquire keys in order to unlock the next door. Keys can be obtained in the Event Shop with Holiday Wreaths, the event currency.

    How do I get Holiday Wreaths?
    Glad you asked! You’ll be able to get them by completing Event Quests and on certain days, you’ll be able to get them in chests at the end of Campaign Dungeons and in PVP matches. Oh, and the Tower of Pwnage will also be giving out wreaths for completion (it will also have a special quest on certain days for wreaths).

    How does the Winterfest Calendar Work?
    On the first day of Winterfest, my true Imp gave to meee…..three different keys!

    All right, so, here you’ll have a calendar with 14 doors. Each day, a locked door will be highlighted corresponding to the day of the event (provided that you have unlocked all doors up to that point).

    Use any one of three keys—bronze, silver, or gold—to unlock a door for an awesome bundle of rewards. Choose wisely, though! Each key provides a different bundle of rewards and you can only unlock a door ONCE.

    Once a door is unlocked, you’ll also unlock daily quests for that day! Complete them for Holiday Wreaths and even more rewards.

    Great! Now…where do I get keys?
    As mentioned, there are three different keys available. You can obtain bronze and silver keys in the Event Shop by spending Holiday Wreaths. There is a single gold key available in the Event Shop for Holiday Wreaths, but you’ll have to purchase any additional gold keys.

    What kinds of rewards are behind the closed doors?
    Each day and each reward tier is different! You’ll find tokens for new Hero Grog-Gnog, Stamina, Runes, Heroic Summons, Gold, Evos, Loot Keys, other Hero tokens, and even some surprise bonuses! Come back each day to check them out!

    If I use a key to unlock a door, can I go back and use another key on the same door to get the remaining rewards?
    Nope, nice try though! You’ll have to choose your key/reward wisely as each locked door can only be unlocked once.

    What time will the next locked door in the Winterfest Calendar be available for unlocking?
    3PM CST!

    How long do I have to complete the dungeons and quests I get when I unlock a door?
    You'll have 24 hours to complete any event dungeons you unlock, starting when you unlock them. This means you could potentially have multiple event dungeons unlocked at the same time and they might disappear at about the same time. Some quests will last 24 hours, and others will last longer. If you need to be reminded about a timer, just check you Events screen.

    I just unlocked the first day and it's telling me to Defeat Grog-Gnog in the Tower of Pwnage, but you guys didn't warn me and I already completed my Tower and now I won't be able to complete the Quest! Why are you guys so cruel?
    Whoa there! Check the Event banner for the quest! You have 14 days to complete this quest!

    AH! I just found out about this amazing event! What if I join in the 7th day of the event…do I miss out on the earlier quests and rewards?
    Nope! You’ll be able to unlock each door and finish quests up to the 7th day!

    These daily event quests are tough! Do I need to finish them to be able to unlock the next day’s door?
    Nope! Daily quests are not mandatory — but they are one of the most efficient ways to get wreaths.

    What happens if I run out of doors to unlock on Day 14?
    You’ll want to hold on to any extra Holiday Wreaths and Keys…we’ve got a special surprise waiting.

    Where are all the Holiday Skins I see in the art?
    We’ll be releasing the new Holiday Skins individually throughout Winterfest in the Shop for purchase as part of a bundle. Keep an eye out for them!

    Do I get a bonus for wearing Holiday Skins?
    You sure do! Any Hero wearing a Holiday Skin will have bonus starting energy in PVE and PVP!

    How do I get the new Hero, Grog-Gnog, son of Kang-Kung?
    Grog-Gnog is only available during this event (for now)! Get his tokens from Unlocked Doors and one of the event Quests!

    Additionally, if you unlock all the right doors (including the not-so-secret-now bonus event) with gold keys, you will have accumulated enough tokens for six-starred Grog-Gnog!

  • Can I go back and unlock say a day 2 door on day 5?
  • So wearing holiday skins only gives energy and not extra wreaths right?
  • How long does this event last? i'm hoping for 2 weeks
  • So to unlock the quests that give wreaths.. you need to get wreaths to buy a key. This seems backwards.


  • It's the first Day of Winterfest and I have just jumped into the event, but I have a good feeling that this will be amazing! Thank you for this event DB team!!!!!

  • Is each key a single use and then it's destroyed? Also, if I'm understanding correctly, realistically, to open the first door today, I would need to collect a bunch of wreaths via Tower/PvP, and then purchase a bronze (most likely) key to open door #1?

    Yes, but you can't unlock door 3 until you unlock door 2, even if it's day 5.

    14 doors, 1 for each day, so yes. :)

  • "How do I get Holiday Wreaths?
    Glad you asked! You’ll be able to get them by completing Event Quests, tapping on sparkly objects..."

    Im seeing no sparkly objects other than the normal ones and they are not giving wreaths.

    Am I missing something or is this comment underlined above not quite accurate?

    I was assuming something like the Halloween event with pumpkins replaced by presents or whatever
  • This is nuts. Exciting and overwhelming. I can't wait to dig in.

    Just finished one campaign level and was rewarded 15 wreaths. Only 54,985 more to get the first skin. I hope there will better ways to earn wreaths.

    @Joel Getting a 7AD89461 error code when trying to accept the keys in the boss mail.

    Also (not paying attention), I seem to have a lot of wreaths, did they carry over from last time or something?

  • Error Code 4C513534
  • So you start with a gold, silver and gold correct? Did anyone else get a mail with more keys?

    I got one but when I clicked on it I got an error code and got kicked out when I clicked accept.

    Sorry, it seems Joveth still had Haunted Halls on his mind. Wreaths do not pop out of sparkling objects, sorry for the confusion!

  • Although it seems like a great event to me I think that the items in the shop are seriously overpriced if one concerns that PVE dungeons aren't nearly infinitely rerunable because there are no stamina-dropping "pumpkins" (presents, whatsoever). If I just calculate the amount of wreaths I could get if I spent every point of stamina I had it would be ~ 250 stamina a day + 175 from the tower which accumulates to 425 stam. Which is 85 dungeon runs which is on average (15,20,30 ~ average 22) 85*22 = 1870 + 12 * 90 from PvP + sometimes ToP = ca 3000 wreaths a day when one doesnt miss anything out. 3000 * 14 = 42000... That's not even enough to get a single skin. Am I overseeing something?
  • Can I let multiple days of doors build up and then go back and choose which keys to use based on what the rewards are behind each day?
  • Prices for event items is insanely high.. 55,000 wreaths for a skin ? Seriously ?

    You're not accounting for quests, special event dungeons, and other bonuses that will be happening over the course of the event. Trust me, there'll be more than enough wreaths to go around. :)

    Crap! Is today one of the right doors to go gold key on?? 30 seems light... but it's so hard to know!

    So... you can only get a single gold key all event long without knowing when the best time will be? That's not cool. Also, if you are going for the plain cashgrab, could you please at least sell them in convenient bundles of say 13 or 6?
  • Also getting error codes when attempting to accept the keys in the mailbox...

    If I had to guess, you probably need to open all the doors with gold keys that give any amount of Grog tokens.
  • happy holidays everyone ....by trying to accept the 2 keys sent in the mail i always get error code 8dd01df1
  • So, if I play hard and get 1 gold key for each door every day, and use that gold key, there is no way to have any gold keys left over for the "surprise" joveth mentioned.

    It would be nice to know what the surprise is and how many keys and/or wreaths we might need for this surprise so we can decide how many keys and wreaths we want to save.

  • The Tower of Pwnage isn't giving out wreaths for completion as stated above.

    Grog-Gnog is only available during this event (for now)! Get his tokens from Unlocked Doors and one of the event Quests!

    Additionally, if you unlock all the right doors with gold keys, you will have a six-starred Grog-Gnog!

    So you mean If all the doors opened with gold keys, their would be 600 new hero token? Or there is one full unlock in some door?
