    Buy skates. You only need one pair: share them with your characters using the Shared Bank.

    If you are into Cannith Crafting you can get craftable trinkets as random awards for coin turn ins. And they become BtA instead of BtC once you disjunct them and craft even an ML1 shard onto them.

    If you have cosmetic armor and a cosmetic helm you can put fire and cold resist on them. You can also put +1 AC alchemical armor defense using the stone of change on the cosmetic armor.

    The Snow Elemental Gem is very useful as a summon when you are leveling for Heroic TR. You need to have some of those seemingly useless Festival Twigs though.

    And make sure to have fun!

    Purchase skates then search YouTube for "Risia Ice Games Harbor Jump". Watch one of the videos. Doing so will potentially save you hours worth of failed jumps. After watching a video, even a klutz like me was able to reliably grab the Purple Coin.

    You will need a very high Jump and as much Speed as you can muster. Feather Fall works against you.

    Every time you grab a given coin it takes a few minutes to respawn. Moving away from the spawn location seems to speed up this process.

    There is a teleport square behind the little ice rink as sea level. If you miss a jump, use it to quickly get back up top.

    Once you learn to make the jump for the Purple Coin, you need not bother with the boathouse or any other nonsense. Just go for more Purple Coins. You will get plenty of the others in the process.

    If you have Wings or Cannith Boots of Propulsion or something similar you can try the tavern jump for the Purple Coin.

    The Bogwater Tavern thingy is meant for a group. You will not get anywhere with it solo.

    The DDO Wiki contains lots of useful information.

    Buy a pair of skates, they are BTA, if you have shared bank you can share between all your characters on the server. Now learning to skate, that's up to you.

    Every piece of advice I might think of is already here: http://ddowiki.com/page/Risia_Ice_Games

    Snow is pretty.
    But skating doesn't add to the trail of bodies.
    Nor does it give XP.

    I've been playing 7 years and have yet to get a purple. I like the ES ice skating race best.
