    Winter Wonderland will be making a triumphant return for the fifth time with new presents and goodies for ARK survivors. The winter-themed holiday event begins on December 17th at 10am PST for PC, XBOX, and PS4 and will last until Thursday, January 7th. All maps will receive Winter Wonderland and all its content including RaptorClaus and GachaClaus.

    Our very recognizable helper, RaptorClaus, is returning 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 making a come-back to help RaptorClaus spread the holiday cheer! GachaClaus will be roaming all maps in true holiday spirit while 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 7 brand new Chibis!

    2X taming was made permanent a few months back, let the breeders get a perk for a change without whining

    i think he means 2x the 2x :P Honestly taming still takes too long on 2x perma but I'm grateful for it regardless

    I hope they fix the kibble taming bug! Some things take twice as much kibble, or other taming food, as they should. I was trying to tame a 145 titanoboa; Dododex said it should need 7 eggs to tame. I fed it thirteen and it still would have taken two more to be tamed if it hadn't picked a fight with a vulture and gotten killed

    Wellllll... Anime can either be a shortened version of animation, meaning things like sponge-bob, and Mickey Mouse are anime’s,  or using the definition, a style of Japanese film. So really it depends on your understanding of what the word means...

    I wish there was a pants skin that matches the sweaters. besides, I'm still waiting for a birthday suit gloves skin and a neutral skin for shoes. that would be great. ^^

    I agree. 😀

    Anime to me is the latter, which I would not consider Ark series as Anime.

    Ya know I'd think it would be a great idea to add pajamas maybe slippers and one of those cartoon nightcaps as a comedic skin

    I don't, I'd actually prefer full outfits including gloves and boots too. However, I rarely wear any of the skins I make because once you lose it it's gone. Which is a really poor mechanic.

    Ahhh another event I’ll never get to fully enjoy, for some reason, these events always seem to be just when I’m starting a new survivor, or are short and I never have time... also, for me this marks 2 years of ark! I first started on a Xmas event!

    Yes, it should be perma buy, and we should get to perma keep our decor. I don’t think chibis should be perma keep tho.. and plus, I really like flak armors look better then a Tshirt with 50000 dinos on it.

    Oh right, also WC, please continue letting us activate all events after they are finished insted of just removing them.. it makes the Activate Event tab 100% useless..
