    Merry Christmas everyone!

    The long anticipated Christmas update has arrived. Along with our amazing content team we have prepared a new Christmas Event for you all to enjoy. The event will require teamwork and can't be done solo and there will be rewards for both passive and active participating players!

    How do I play in the event?
    The first part you'll need is a key. The keys are randomly dropped whenever you grind your job. For example if you're a miner, whenever you mine stone or ores, there is a chance a key will drop. You can only get keys from grinding your own jobs.
    Once you've collected a key, you need to team up with at least 4 other players that also has a key.
    Together you can can go to /warp event and use your keys in the keyholes.
    Once all 5 keyholes are active, everyone at the /warp event will be teleported into the boss arena where you have to fight the Grinch and his evil minions.
    Once you have defeated the Grinch, everyone who on the server will get awarded with credits and those who took an active part in killing the boss gets an extra amount of credits.
    However! The boss fight is tricky. The Grinch has 3 different stages with special abilities and grows stronger every time you defeat him.
    If you fail to kill the Grinch, you don't get any rewards and will have to activate the boss fight with new keys.

    What can I get from the event?
    Other than the great fun of grinding and boss killing there are also epic items you can purchase with the credits awarded from killing the Grinch. There are unique cosmetic items that you can use as collectibles and items that when used, gives you a money and experience boost for your jobs.
    You can see all the possible items at /creditshop - Please note that you can only purchase one job boost item in total across both Classic and Greek.

    The event will last until Dec. 29th

    Event FAQ
    Q:
    How do you get to the event?
    A: Use the command /warp event.

    Q: How do you claim your rewards?
    A: Claim your rewards with /creditshop

    Q: Can you activate a boss by yourself?

    Q: Can I get more than 1 job boost item?

    Q: What happens if my inventory is full and a key drops?
    A: The key will drop on the ground. Do not pick up another person's key!

    Alchemist Rebalance
    We recently disabled droppers in order to balance out the payouts given from the Alchemist job. After doing so, we did a further investigation into the different ingredients and recalculated each items payout according to their rarity and market price.

    Hey just a few questions: I'm assuming the keys can be dropped from ANY kind of activity related to a job. Such as smelting for blacksmith, any type of potion for alchemist OR farming wart, any type of block for builder.

    Q: Also is it possible to grind for more than 1 key and give them to teammates to help out some lesser active friends?
    A: You can get unlimited keys


    Q: Is it possible to grind on greek and get the credits, then redeem the item on classic?

    Extremely happy how the event is about grinding jobs. I am against 8% items coming back, as it really devalues all old job items. But really pleased so far!!!

    Few more quick questions:

    Q: Does the key appear in your inventory like an item from a Treasure Crate or does it drop like a mined block?
    A:

    Q: If the key Does drop (say from a full Inventory) can another player pick it up?
    A:
