    One of our most notable helpers, RaptorClaus, will be back to drop off holiday gifts filled with loot, event items, mistletoe, and lumps of coal for all those naughty survivors.  You'll be able to catch RaptorClaus flying across the skies at midnight (game time) on all maps.

    GachaClaus is also returning to help RaptorClaus spread the holiday cheer!  GachaClaus will be roaming all maps in holiday garb and sporting holiday-themed colors. He will be accepting your coal and in exchange will gift you holiday themed items, or you can trade in your mistletoe and coal for a chance at event items. weapons, armor and a brand new event item, Chibis!

    While Winter Wonderland is active, you'll have a chance to collect over 50 ARK chibi petsARK chibi pets are cute miniaturized versions of the creatures you have become familiar with in your travels across the ARK universe.  Chibi's pets can be leveled up by killing specific alpha creatures and in return, you'll be granted additional player levels .  Some chibi pets may be harder to find so you'll have to visit GachaClaus and RaptorClaus to find all the chibi pets!  Can you collect them all?

    Taming and Breeding rates aside, as those seem to be the main point on conversation in the 3 pages of comments I just read through.... I must say I am ready to start hunting out these new chibis. They are new and there is so much to learn about them since not much was said.

    Are they pets that follow you around? Something you keep in your inventory? Shoulder pets? Something you can place? Are they breedable? Which creatures will we find? Are they too going to be seasonally colored? 

    So much to learn and figure out with these new pets. I can't wait to hunt a few of them down!

    And I must say It is nice to see the ugly sweater additions. They still aren't the full santa, elf, snowman, or pluffy snowsuit skins I have been hoping to see, but they are something more than the hat skins we have been given year after year. It just one more clothing item, but it something different and we will not at least be able to wear two holiday themed suit pieces. 

    Thanks WC!

    really looking forward to finding out the chibis, Tho if i could be cheeky, i would like the dermis to have a beard, or a way to put it on as a skin. I've already created Santa's cabin, with his reindeer's, just waiting for the Christmas tree etc. But my Santa, doesn't look right with out a beard.


    Any way well done WC for the event :)

    Maybe the next CC will contain actual information about the DLC that's dropping a month late.....

    What would you rather?

    A broken DLC that would take a month to fix

    OR

    A DLC that launched an extra month late, but provided a great experience with little-to-no-bugs, because the devs actually tried to bring us a good DLC?

    And I don't think it'll provide Genesis info, but it'll give us a chance to see the creatures up close, small or not.

    ITS NOT LATE, they did this on purpose so they can have a better and more smooth release, 

    learn to read -_-

    Guy,.  They do this EVERY update, dlc and tlc. The fact is people are upset because once again WC has thrown a date out there only to change it. It will probably be postponed again and when it does drop there will still be bugs. Then a week or a month after they do release it they will come back and Nerf every creature in the dlc. People who are upset really shouldn't be. Not because "they" are making it better but because WC could Not keep a deadline if their lives depended on it.  Plain and simple WC gives dates and WC always misses those dates.

    Why no 2x taming? At least for this one event. I love the 2x breeding don’t get me wrong but I’d love to tame my favorite creatures without wasting half of my day.

    It says 2x taming...

    The problem was that people were not reading the whole thread and were just instantly quoting the posts from the first page. I've edited those posts earlier, so hopefully people stop about it. 🤪

    Awesome love the event. Did you fix the Rexes on the Island yet. They can't damage anything except a Mammoth. It's great that you made The Island an actual Winter Wonderland but I can't play it until you fix the Rex issue.
