Frostval Returns for 2019
Battle through our returning seasonal events!
Frostval is a time of joy, hope, and... defending Lore from all the insane ice monsters that cannot stop attacking it?!?! Log in this weekend to battle through all our winter holiday events and unlock seasonal rewards!
/join Frostvale to begin battling through all the previous years of Frostval releases, then test your mettle (and metal!) against the biggest gifts of them all: Giefury and his darker, deadlier self, GieFURIOUS!
Giefurious appeared in Frostvale out of nowhere, slashing his ribbons about and muttering the number 13... 13... 13...
This year, in additional to Giefury's seasonal presents, Giefurious has NEW gifts for you:
- Frostval Nutcracker armor (red variant)**
- Giefurious armor set + pet
- Giefurious House Guard
- Festive Frostval Elf + Merry Frostvale Outfit armor set
- Festive Battle Elf armor (member-only)
- Blue Frosty-val Doge helm
FrostScythe also drops an version of his armor set, crafted by the incomparable Aranx just to help you celebrate Frostval!
* Giefury's name comes from the Old English noun "giefu" for "a giving, gift", which is related to the Old Norse word "gift, gipt" meaning "gift; good luck."
** Created just for you by AQW Community artist, Dominik!
ALL of the seasonal events from previous years will also return - that means you'll get to battle Kezeroth, Quetzal, and more... PLUS get all the holiday seasonal goodies that come with them!
Journey to Frostvale
Once again the Frost Moglins of Frostvale are opening the snow-covered gates of their town to all of Lore as they prepare for the merriest of all of Lore's holidays... Frostval! If this is your first year with AQW then you get to play through all of the previous adventures:
