Celebrate the Year of the Rooster with Kats!

We here at Spiral HQ would like to wish you luck in the Year of the fire snipe… er… Rooster! We’re celebrating the new year by equipping knights with gear that would make any Rooster envious. The Rooster Prize Box is available through March 2, 2017.

These contain all new items in various colors, such as:

  • Buhgok Tails
  • Fowl Cloaks
  • Fowl Cowls
  • Wattlesnipes
  • Feathered Auras

More information on the Rooster Prize Box and its contents may be found here.

An over abundance of roosters has also spurred other creatures to descend on the Clockworks. As you may have suspected, the black kats are once again storming the Moorcroft Manor Archives and consuming the valuable tomes it stores! We need all knights of rank 4-1 and greater to gear up! Do not fear going forward slowly knights; fear only to stand still.

You can find black kats in the Kataclysmic Confrontation prestige mission and various kat levels in the Clockworks. Be sure to collect Ancient Pages and visit Montague in Moorcroft Manor, or the Mysterious Crafting Machine in Haven, to obtain event themed items. If you perform a Dark Ritual and survive the encounter, you may find yourself in possession of a Black Kat Cowl or some materials which will allow you to craft some event exclusive gear.

More information on the Kataclysmic Confrontation can be found on the wiki here. If you have participated in a previous Confrontation and still have Ancient Page tokens, they are still valid! Ancient Page tokens do not expire. The Kataclysmic Confrontation will run through February 22nd.

Recruiting: Scarlet Scouts!

Rhendon is recruiting brave knights to join the elite Scarlet Scouts. These Recon knights travel fast and light to gather intel on the most hazardous areas of Cradle and bring the innocent to safety. Like the Recon Rangers, each Scarlet Scout is equipped with a special shield, The Final Gasp. The name serves as a reminder to all as to precisely when a Scout is permitted to drop it in battle.

Hazardous Prize Boxes are available for $4.95 each, 5 boxes for $19.95 or 14 boxes for $49.95.

Winterfest Is Upon Us!

Happy Winterfest knights!

It’s time again for Impostoclaus to bring delight and festive fun. Visit his helper, Randolph, near the fountain in Haven to exchange tokens for festive helms, winter confetti, and snowballs.

Help Impostoclaus deliver presents to the children of Emberlight. Feed him milk and cookies to keep him strong. Protect him from Grinchlins and collect Winter Wish tokens.

Those pesky Gremlins say "Humbug!" and plan to stop Impostoclaus and destroy Winterfest! Help Impostoclaus stop them from destroying Winterfest with two daily prestige missions.

Raid the Grinchlin stronghold on Mount Krampus during the Grinchlin Assault Prestige Mission to stop them from ruining Winterfest! Make your way through the compound, all the way to the summit to find special 4* Solstice Ring trinkets. Combine them together to make the 5* Grand Solstice Ring trinket!

Delve into the Clockworks for Winterfest danger rooms! Collect Frozen Winterfest Wishlist tokens and exchange them with Randolph in Haven. He has a new Winterfest Present that contains tasteful new holiday pullovers and cheery onesies.

Visit the Supply Depot for Decoration Kits for your guild hall and gift boxes to wrap your gifts for your guildmates!

Deep Freeze!

The cold of winter is descending on Cradle. To keep knights moving during the most extreme cold conditions, Spiral HQ has issued chilling new gear. Blend into any frozen environment with frosty gear and accessories.

While these items look frozen solid on the outside--for camo reasons, and also because it looks formidable--they're mighty toasty on the inside. Think of them as Cradle's most efficient travel coffee mug. Take care with the new permafrost aura as it may leave a puddle in warmer places.

Contents include:

* Permafrost Aura (new)

* Crystalline Defender (new, shield)

* Maskeraith (Freeze) Pod

* Arctic Acolyte Mantle (new)

* Arctic Acolyte Hood (new)

* Arctic Disciple Wings

* Arctic Crown

* Arctic Shackles

* Arctic Pauldrons

* Additional new armors and helms

* New accessories

Glacial Prize Boxes are available for $4.95 each, 5 boxes for $19.95 or 14 boxes for $49.95.

Gaggles of gobbling snipes are looking for a new home! Visit the Supply Depot and purchase Gobble Snipe Boxes to create a flock of Gobble Snipes in your guild hall. Gobble Snipes are available in autumn colors brown, black and gold. Don’t forget to check the bottom of the box to see if there’s a Gift of Autumn trinket!

Gobble Boxes will be in the Supply Depot through December 1st!
