On December 16th, the main administrator of Eldarya opened a thread announcing the start of the Christmas event. From December 16th, 2016 to January 3rd, 2017, players had access to a new exploration map. The map had twenty different locations for companions to explore.
Companions could find either food, bait, a companion egg, or a piece of equipment or illustration piece. If a companion came back without bringing any equipment items, a bar underneath the map— referred to as the "second chance bar"— would progress one step. The bar would continue to fill each time a companion came back empty-handed. Once the bar reached fifteen, the player would receive a random equipment item, after which the gauge would revert back to zero. If a companion returned with an outfit piece before the bar filled up, the bar would reset to zero. All players automatically got an equipment item after their first exploration.
Players could also buy event items from the Clothes Shop. Some outfits could be bought with both Maana and Gold Coins, while some could only be bought with coins. There was one outfit that could only be found via exploration and two outfits that could only be obtained through the Clothes Shop. All outfits had different amounts of color variations.
Companions and their baits could be bought from the Companion Shop. The eggs could only be purchased with Gold Coins while the baits could be bought with either Maana or coins.
Anything bought from either store could not be sold on the market while items found through exploration could be, not including the first equipment piece or any illustration pieces.
On the event page, players could see a blurred version of the event illustration and any pieces of it that they had found. Pieces could be bought for twenty gold coins. When all the illustration pieces were found or paid for, players had to click a button to reform the illustration. Once reformed, the picture was added to that player's illustration collection. There were eight pieces in total that needed to be collected.
