Wednesday, the holiday season started in the world of Albion! But what can you actually do now that winter has come around? Let’s find out!

Meet Uncle Frost

Albion’s very own Uncle Frost is back in the land and he is bearing gifts! This not-so-jolly event boss will drop a Decorative Bridle upon being killed. Take this item to your local saddler, combine it with a Tier 4 Adept’s Riding Horse and receive the holiday-themed Yule Stag.

To find this special Christmas giant, venture into the Keeper’s group dungeon, down the Giant Gatekeeper and enter the Gateway. Uncle Frost will be one of the bosses in the Gateway.

Shoot First, Ask Questions Later

Not feeling very adventurous? Visit your local Vanity Merchant to purchase Snowballs to throw at friends and foes alike, or pick from an array of Fireworks to shoot into the sky.

  • Snowball: 10 Gold each
  • Royal Blue Fireworks: 5 Gold each
  • Royal Green Fireworks: 10 Gold each
  • Royal Yellow Fireworks: 15 Gold each
  • Royal Red Fireworks: 25 Gold each

Snowballs can be bought in stacks of 10 and Fireworks in stacks of 20.

More Gifts!

Make sure to log in to Albion Online as the year comes to a close! A special gift will be sent to your mailbox on December 17, at 00:00 UTC, to the first character you log in with. The gift will disappear on January 2 at 00:00 UTC, don’t miss out!

You have until the next major update, Galahad, to take advantage of the holiday event!

Have you already said hi to dear Uncle Frost? Will you get your hands on the marvelous Yule Stag? Let us know your adventures and thoughts in the comments below.

Hi av1,

Sometimes we do not use literal translation, in order to keep a text pleasant to read and make sure it comes over naturally. As the meaning of the Russian text is accurate to its source, the translation will not be changed. Thank you for your concern, do not hesitate to contact me on the forum if you have more questions!

is not an accurate translation into Russian:
Uncle Frost will be waiting for you there (in the Gateway).

in English:
Uncle Frost will be one of the bosses in the Gateway.

Hi everyone!
Winter event items will be wiped as well, however that does not mean you won't get the chance to get them again in the future :)

Could I get an admin or some moderator to confirm weather or no it is permanent or not? I don't want to spend my time trying to get it if it's not permanent. I logged on and asked people and they said it would go away with the wipe so
I want confirmation please. Thanks for your support though. READ MORE SHOW LESS

Wrong. It's an "exclusive" item. It's meant to be obtained from a specific time period that you cannot obtain any other time. You should be able to keep that mount.

The hard wipe pertains to all of the game's statistics in testing, bugs, game balance, etc.

So do these things get wiped with the beta wipe before release or do we get to keep these things for when the game launches? READ MORE SHOW LESS
