On December 16th, the main administrator on Eldarya opened a thread announcing the start of the Christmas event. From December 16th 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, an egg, or a piece of equipment/illustration. If a companion came back without any clothing items, a bar underneath the map (referred to as the "second chance bar") would progress one step. If a companion found a clothing piece in the meantime, the bar would empty. Once the bar reached fifteen, the player would receive a random equipment item, after which the gauge would revert back to zero. All players automatically got an equipment item after their first exploration.
Players could 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 one outfit that could only be obtained through the Clothes shop. All outfits had varying amounts of color variants.
Exclusive 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 both Maana and coins.
Anything bought from the store could not be sold on the market while items found via exploration could be, excluding the first equipment piece and any illustration pieces.
On the event page, players could see a blurred image of the event illustration and any pieces of it that they had found. When the illustration was complete, it was added to that player's illustration collection. Pieces could be bought for twenty gold coins. There were eight pieces that needed to be collected in total.
