As the winter starts and the snow spreads over Elvenar a dreamy and skillful goblin wanders in the continent looking for the perfect spot to realize his most ambitious dream. After finding a nice entry point to the underground of the continent, Boblin finds a network of natural tunnels that expands further than his little eyes could reach. The little goblin's eyes shine with happiness, that was it! The place he would start bringing his plans to life, construct his own package distribution network. His ambition and dedication attracted Elves, Humans, and other Goblins to work on the huge project.
As the construction progresses, the sounds of the happy workers, zooming snow sleds, and all the machinery being built attracts the attention of a very curious young owl, Uli. Uli is the new delivery trainee in the postal service and is amazed by all the colors, movements, and shining metal parts from Boblin's distribution Center. Her Trainer, Inuma, starts to feel that Uli has been absent from service quite often and follows her into the snowy fields to find the beautiful village built by the different races. Funny as it can be, she discovers that Uli built her nest in a huge and curious structure that looks a lot like her own post office. Exploring the area Inuma discovers the great network built underground and realizes that a partnership between the postal service and the letter delivery is a great opportunity to ensure that more and more villages are supplied with all the gifts even during the strongest storms. Of course, your help will be very important to support Boblin and Inuma build the biggest distribution network seen in the continent and delivering the winter spirit to all the inhabitants of Elvenar.
Quests & Quest Milestones
The questline consists of a story section and additional episodic quests, which start as soon as the story is completed. This means that you will be able to finish the first series of quests right away, while later quests have new additions released on a daily basis, allowing you to continue to play one additional event quest on each new event day.
Solving event quests also comes with additional benefits, as each completed quest brings you closer to reaching one of the Milestones which gives you additional rewards simply for reaching them.
Each completed quest will give you Postal Keys as a reward. They are automatically added to the Event Menu. With the Postal Keys, you can open Postal Boxes to win precious and unique Event Buildings and other items. Opening the Postal Boxes will also grant you Winter Gifts to progress towards the Grand Prizes, but that's not all! In this year's Winter Magic Event, when opening a Postal Box, a Postal Star is added to the Special Powers counter, once you have gathered the required amount you can then use it to activate Special Powers to further turn the odds in your favor!
By clicking the Event Menu icon you will access the Event Window which will give you plenty of information and allow you to put the Postal Keys you gathered to use:
- The time remaining until the event ends.
- The current Grand Prize you are working towards and a preview of the next ones to come.
- As you see that you have reached 5/5 Reroll charges, and you want to change your Daily Prize, just press the Reroll button, confirm your choice, and you will see your Daily Prize change for the day!
- Your Daily Exclusive Prize. Hover over the building for its description.
- The amount of Postal Keys you have collected and not yet spent.
- Allows you to buy Postal Keys with Premium currency.
- Displays how many Winter Gifts have been delivered and shows current progress towards unlocking the Grand Prizes.
- Uli, the new delivery trainee owl: As you hand Winter Gifts from Postal Boxes to Uli. Uli will follow the path to the current Grand Prize.
- Postal Boxes which you can open with Postal Keys to win a reward and obtain Winter Gifts and Postal Stars.
- Special Powers: "Reveal Two" and "Double Reward" - When the required number of Postal Boxes have been opened, you can use these to reveal two random rewards or double the reward in the next Postal Box opened. "Shuffle" can be activated using Postal Keys whenever you want to get a new set of Postal Boxes.
You start the Winter Magic event with 100 Postal Keys and each Event Quest will give you more as a reward for completing the given tasks. Every day you play during the Event, you will receive a Daily Winter Magic login reward of 30 Postal Keys .
Also, from time to time, you will find more Postal Keys around your city outskirts for you to collect.
You can then use the Postal Keys to open Postal Boxes. Additional Postal Keys are unlocked upon reaching the third Quest Milestone.
Remember that the Winter Magic event only lasts for a few weeks, and after that you will no longer be able to use your Postal Keys to open Postal Boxes and earn awesome rewards, so don't waste time!
Each day in the Winter Magic event starts with a total of 16 locked Postal Boxes that are just waiting for you to open them, using Postal Keys. At the start of each day, you will be presented with a new selection of rewards hidden within the Postal Boxes. To give you an idea of what you can win, the rewards are visible at first but you must "Shuffle" them before you open the doors to claim them.
You can activate a manual "Shuffle" at any point in time, given you have the required 45 Postal Keys.
Use your Postal Keys to open Postal Boxes. Each one will give you a Winter Gift plus one of many different rewards like the changing Daily Exclusives, Instants, Knowledge Points, Rune Shards, special Buildings, or more Postal Keys.
|Hint:If you have already found the prizes you were looking for, using the Shuffle button to get a new set of closed doors might be a good strategy.|
Each time you open a Postal Box, 1 Postal Star is added to the Special Powers counter. Once you have gathered the required amount you can then use the respective Power to further increase your odds!
|Please Note:You cannot continue to collect additional Postal Stars if a Special Power is ready to use. Only after a Power has been used will the counter start increasing again with each new door opened.|
Each time you open a Postal Box, you will be rewarded with a Winter Gift. If you have used the "2x" Special Power previously, you will even receive two Winter Gifts.
Every Postal Box you open also contains a Winter Gift that Uli, the delivery owl, will deliver to your citizens. Once Uli delivered a total of 20 Winter Gifts, the next Grand Prize is unlocked for you.
A new Evolving Building is available in the Winter Magic Event: the Boblins Express Service! Your Evolving building can be evolved through 10 stages to increase its power.
The Boblins Express Service provides Culture and Population. As an additional bonus, it also provides the production of Supplies, Mana, Seeds, or Unurium (depending on the Chapter). As it evolves, you will receive higher amounts of these resources, and more productions will be added such as Precious Goods, Relics, and Magical Manufacturing Enchantment.
