  1. Yay he’s voiced! Finally. Thank you for the rundown. Torn between him and Goblinhouse. Goblin is not voiced but looks cuter and gets to run after a fluttery butterfly.. no one ever suspects a butterfly.. 🦋 🦋 🦋 🦋 If Melric had a job getting ganged up on by raccoons, I’d buy him instantly

  2. Thanks for all the post and keeping us informed, not many replied or comments or opinions????

    • Thanks for the thanks 😊
      The Icewalker post is going to be up in a little while and I’m torn between getting started on the Store Guide post for tomorrow or go get a beer or three and do it in the morning . . .
      Beer’s winning so far !!

  3. Well I don’t seem to have a mystery box again for this event. I hope I don’t get screwed out of donuts like I did in the last event where I also did not have a mystery box. I got nothing for any of my tokens.

    • I’ve got a couple of older cash offerings to go at and then I’ll see in act 3 what happens, but check the Currency section of your Store rather than wait for me. If it’s not there then perhaps once the event ends or they broke it again

      • Worked for me got my 12 donuts last night. I always speed my way through the MB part of the prize track if there’s nothing in the box as I don’t like working towards essentially nothing as 12 donuts isn’t a lot when you can farm.

        • Thanks for that, good to know.
          When I get chance I’ll try checking the info against the xmas details and see if I can work out what went wrong there.
          If I can I’ll try and pass that up through the AHQ team and see if it helps provide a fix for those.
          Meanwhile Im’ juggling grinding – my 3 week old town hit Springfield Heights this morning – and getting the store info post done. Won’t be long now . . . hopefully.

  4. How many folk will put him on 4 hour tasks and never explore the others? Would it be that difficult for EA.

    • They used to do the questlines to show you each job but I guess a lot of people moaned it’d take days with the 1, 4, 8, 12 and 24 hour tasks to get through, but they often add a temp job for the quests now that’s just a 4h version of the longer ones
