The Snowpeaks Festival is the most magical time of winter, when the ice, sleet, and wind arrive, bringing good cheer and treats to all who brave the Peaks!
Did we mention that there are also monsters who want to kill you? Oh. Ok, well, there's that. A new Champion type, Scourge of the Snowpeaks, has arrived, and if you slay these Champions, a chest will appear that will reward you with Bronze, Silver, or Gold Snowpeaks Coins. Turn these coins in to Flurry in the Hall of Heroes for great rewards! Snowpeaks Coins can also sometimes be discovered in chests throughout the game.
Every time you defeat a Scourge of the Snowpeaks there is also a rare chance that the chest will contain a Frozen Key, which you can turn in to Flurry for access to the Snowpeaks themself! Frozen Keys can also be found in chests throughout the game while the event is active, but at a rarer rate.
While on the Snowpeaks, you will have your wits, reflexes, and ability to stay cool under pressure tested with a challenge to collect Coins as you slide, jump, and twist! Running a Snowpeaks challenge rewards you with a large number of Snowpeaks Coins. Anyone can run a challenge as long as they have a Frozen Key!
Some of the rewards may be familiar to adventurers who have visited during Festivult or the Winter Games, but there are new items in addition to some cosmetics that were once exclusive to the rarer Gold Daily Dice rewards!
