It's Christmas in Arcana and Terminus Center has been decorated for the festivities. Santa's granddaughter Marie is in town with quests and the hunt for the Bad Santa and the Christmas Shushus is on!
Christmas Quests and Store
Santa's Granddaughter, Marie
, is in Terminus for the festive period. Can you help her save Christmas? Marie has quests to hunt Christmas Shushus, rewarding a Christmas title, and quests to recover stolen gifts that reward a selection of delicious Christmas foods.
Marie's store sells Christmas themed costumes, mounts and accessories as well as items that can be purchased with Santa's Reward
, obtained by completing some of her quests.
Seasonal Dungeon: Bad Santa
Team up with upto 5 other players of ANY level and speak to Marie in Terminus to enter a brand new seasonal dungeon and defeat Bad Santa.
Bad Santa doesn't care about your class, level, or gear, everyone is equal to Bad Santa! Anyone can tank him and anyone can help damage him. Take along your low level friends - they will be just as effective as a level 100, regardless of gear, items, and skills.
Bad Santa can drop Christmas Food, Fireworks, Pet Summoning Pieces, III/IV/V Equip Cards, Trophies, Christmas mounts and costumes, the Bad Santa title, and "other" stolen items. You can enter once per day and it resets at 00:00.
Marie also has a new Daily Event quest to defeat Bad Santa that rewards a Santa's Reward.
Marie has six winter themed pets that she will exchange for Pet Summoning Pieces
and Santa's Rewards
. Speak to Marie and click on Item Exchange
to see what's available.
There is a pet of every type, Physical Melee, Magical Melee, Physical Ranged, Magical Ranged, Assist and Tank.
Type: Physical Melee
Chance Effect: Reduce Physical Defense
Chance Effect: Reduce All Attack
Type: Magical Melee
Chance Effect: Reduce All Hit
Type: Physical Ranged
Chance Effect: Immobilize
Chance Effect: Immobilize
Type: Magical Ranged
Chance Effect: Reduce Movement Speed
All Pet Summoning Pieces can be obtained by defeating Bad Santa, the Christmas Shushu, Christmas Shushu Boss and Christmas Dungeon Shushu and Rudolph Summoning Pieces can also be obtained by defeating Rudolph the Lost.
Now is the perfect time to get yourself an Epic pet using the recently added Pet Upgrade System, by collecting loads of Christmas Pet Summoning Pieces! You need to collect enough to get 4 Unique scrolls and you have yourself an Epic pet. Use the first scroll to summon the Unique pet and the other 3 to upgrade it to Epic quality.
The Christmas Shushu
The Christmas Shushu is a rather tough little fellow that drops Christmas Fireworks to replenish your HP, MP, or both, and also usually has some Christmas event foods and pet summoning pieces too!
But beware, the much stronger Christmas Shushu Boss might also appear somewhere in Arcana at any time, laden with Christmas gifts stolen from Santa Claus! You will need to gather your friends if you hope to defeat this one!
He drops pet summoning pieces, Santa and Rudolph the Reindeer costumes, Christmas Sleigh and Thousand Year Old Reindeer mounts, Festive Squidink vanity pet and plenty of Christmas food and fireworks. This guy is so full of himself, he will probably challenge you to defeat him in 5 minutes for a better chance of lovely Christmas loots!
Start your Shushu hunt in the snowy areas of Shebuz Snowfield, Shrouded Valley, Altus Gorge, Hidden Cavern, Conflict Valley and Frozen Nest.
Dungeon Christmas Shushu
Adventurers might also discover the Dungeon Christmas Shushu
at the end of their level 85+ dungeon runs. This guy has similar strength and abilities to the Christmas Shushu Boss and drops similar items including pet summoning pieces.
Defeating the Christmas Shushu or Shushu Boss will also buff the entire server with a random Seasonal Buff including bonuses to EXP, Money, Drops, Battlefield Points, Stats, Defense, Speed and more! These bonuses stack so you could have up to 15 buffs active at any one time.
