While most of the event is themed, there are a few important changes and additions worth mentioning. The range of new and recurring challenges and the elusive Iceologer Cape reward are just a few of the notable mentions. This small but impactful update packs a punch, and it’s worth knowing how best to handle that impact.


What’s in the update?

For the most part, the update affects lap mode. The structure is outfitted with a new cold theme, and every monster roaming its halls is now covered in a neat new hide.

It’s not all about looks, however. Various hazards behave differently, and as a result, you may need to adjust your playstyle accordingly. Creeper blasts come with a freezing stingslowing your attacks for a brief period, and zombies now launch snow projectiles.

The icy exterior of the pitch can also prove very challenging. Slippery floors mean your attacks might not have the accuracy you initially hoped for and water now freezes you on contact. Be careful when fighting near puddles, as the oncoming onslaught might cause you to panic and accidentally fall.

Challenge Guide

The challenges and trials in this event are a mix of new and old additions. Chills and Thrills trials make a return, the most notable of which is the invisibility modifier. Other modifiers tend to affect how artifact and chest cooldowns work.

There is also a plethora of weekly challenges. Most of the current ones are tower-friendly, so it’s worth spending most of your time there if you want to sort through several quickly. However, a few require you to complete missions, so try out some of the daily trials help kill two birds with one stone.

These challenges and trials are no problem if you have the necessary equipment to support you, but still be careful on how you approach certain sections of the Trials since your playstyle will still need to acclimate to the change in gameplay.
