The 2017 January UpdateEdit


Ice Dancing End

Ring in the New Year with an ice skating competition! Wake the residents of Darkwood out of their hibernation with some festive fun and happiness amid the dreary depths of winter.

Ice Dancing went live on January 4, 2017. The update arrived just a day after the Snowy Fairy Tale event ended and it unlocked access to the new Hidden Object Location first glimpsed in the Christmas updates - Winter Park as well as the Museum. A new mini event challenge and 150 new quests were also included.

The format follows the previous Enchanted Harvest and Snowy Fairy Tale special event updates in terms of game play with similar quests and creatures to banish.

Ice Dancing Timed ChallengeEdit

This special event is available to players from Level 11 and up. Players have 29 days to complete the 3 new tasks in Ice Dancing to win its unique rewards.

The male and female avatars are dressed in warm winter clothes suited for a day spent skating outdoors in the newly opened Winter Park ice rink. They are perfect reminders of the successful completion of the ice Dancing challenge. The new Avatars go directly into the Player's Avatar options and may be accessed by tapping on the current Avatar on the top left hand corner of the Darkwood Town Map.

Banishing requirements follow the previous established pattern for banishing event creatures. Banishing them will award the new fixers required to combine the new collections. These creatures will disappear as soon as the event is over, either by the completion of the Ice Dancing challenge or by time running out.

Completing the Timed ChallengesEdit

Keep in mind that the more you play the Location, the higher the Location Rank you will achieve for the Location, and the more access passes will be required for each play of that Location.
