Christmas is almost here! To celebrate - WinterCrest has some wonderful events lined up for you! - More will be released here in the days to come! So keep your eyes pealed!
December Present Hunt!
Make sure you're on the server on December 1st at 6pm EST!
Our month-long Present Hunt will start!
Blue presents will be hidden and placed around the map and at popular warps - with some spawning around your home if you're lucky!
Gold presents are rare and offer special prizes! These presents will be given out in mini events and sometimes in rare drop parties at the Christmas Village by spawn!
Presents will be placed on the ground in the Christmas Village (You will notice this appear at spawn on December 1st!) at random points in the day - so be sure to have a look around when you can!
When you find presents - you can take them to Santa's Workshop up until Dec 26th! (This will be /warp workshop) the workshop is located right next to the Christmas tree in the Christmas Village. Inside the workshop you will see two machines - throw your presents in to these in exchange for a special prize!
You can also trade Blue Presents for a lottery ticket at /warp lottery. The drawing will take place on boxing day and the winner will receive a WinterTool of YOUR choice! You can buy as many lottery tickets as you want - the more you have the higher chance you have!
- You can trade 20 Blue Presents for a Gold Present!
- You can sell any presents/prizes to other players!
Players are warned to be on their best behavior. Arguing about the event, or general bad behavior (even breaking chat spam rules) will affect present spawning rates around you. SO REMEMBER - MAKE SURE YOU ARE ON THE GOOD LIST!
Normal rules apply, do not steal/trick presents from other players! Do not take presents from other player's homes!
Last year we had a ridiculous amount of players banned from the event, and had prizes revoked due to stealing/tricks! Don't be a grinch!
As a special present from WinterCrest, on Christmas Eve, Day and Boxing day - all players will be able to fly!
Simply use the command /fly to enable it!

Drop parties will be held at /warp drop at the following:
One at 6pm British time / 1am EST time.

LAUNCH DATE: To Be Confirmed
You play as a Grinch – an evil Christmas creature whose only desire is to ruin the holiday for everyone.
Your mission is to steal presents from houses! The Grinch who steals the most presents by the end of the game wins!
On your hotbar you'll also find snowballs which slow other players down, and can punch other Grinches to knock them back!
Stick around for more info folks!
