Festive cheer is in full swing, the Christmas Village is a blizzard of snowball making, coal chasing and present wrapping. As Christmas approaches, the Snow Imps have been growing restless about the wait and have decided to run the festivities to do things their way.
The Snow Imps festive shenanigans will begin after a short maintenance period on Friday 22nd of December at 11:00 GMT / Game Time.
The Snow Imps have dropped an additional gift of their own under the Christmas Tree in the Land of Snow! Meet Noel at the Christmas tree just outside of Santa's lodge after the update to find an early "Impish Present" containing 10,000 Wrapping Paper and 5 Treasure Hunter Keys.
With a little help from the Snow Imps, you'll also be finding more presents than ever over the Christmas break - with double wrapping paper drops for all until the end of the event on January 3rd!*
They'll also be sneaking out the final Christmas Event Buff - Safe Deaths - this Friday to give you an extra weekend of penalty-free bossing too.
*If you had purchased the "Wrapping Paper Doubler" for a bond, you will be earning paper at 4x the base rate!
Santa's Snow Imp's Grotto
The Snow Imps have hijacked Santa's Grotto and unleashed mayhem by 'imp-proving' the Grotto.
Santa's Snow Imp's Grotto includes new rewards and an even greater chance to see purple prizes!
The Snow Imps have found a stockpile of Aurora Dyes in the back of Santa's workshop. In the chaos of rummaging through Santa's stuff, an imp who will remain nameless (*cough* Clementine) has accidentally spilled some of the Aurora Dye on some of the hats and scarves, creating the brand new Aurora Hat & Aurora Scarf! These items are exclusively available in
Santa's Snow Imp's Grotto.
Enhanced Present Prize Meter
The Snow Imps have enhanced the Present Prize Meter following their dive into Santa's stuff, adding a Gold Christmas Present to the Present Prize Meter! If you haven't found a Purple Santa Hat so far, or maybe you just want an extra to gift to a friend, you'll now be guaranteed a Gold Christmas Present every 400 keys.
You'll still get guaranteed presents for every 50 keys, either 3 Purple Christmas Presents or a Santa's Christmas Present. For a reminder of what could be in the Gold, Santa's and Purple Christmas Presents, check out the tables below.

There's only one prize in here - this year's new Santa Hat variant, the Purple Santa Hat!
