Necklace[0] Image and Earring [0] Image.
Could be better, could be worse I guess. Even though I was a little bit too excited, when I saw the un-identified Necklace.

Spank you berry much for making this nice Season-Quest!

Well, I got a Skull Ring and one Belt [1]. That's a lot worse! Did the quest 3 times.

It is labeled as potentially broken by the quests lore.
If you get the Xmas2016 Quest OCA Santa will tell you this:
Santa wrote:Oh, you're quite lucky, you get an extra reward as well.
This is something my elf interns have been working on.
I hope it works as advertised!

This already kind of tells you that there's a twist to it.

Also Santa is making you get gifts back from Antonio, Antonio could have just modified them,
he's in fact reusing those gifts.
It wouldn't be weird if he'd accidentaly give you a defect Old Card Album in that matter.

20 Gift Boxes or 10 OBBs are too high rewards, they raise inflation heavily.


Sorry, I didn't consider bothering with this quest while I in common prefer doing quests above regular gameplay. It looks like it is smarter to sell the required items to NPC for hard cash instead of wasting them for some reward that easy might be just crap. The rewards are a tricky part, I don't have a solution but did you consider to give a reasonable non repeatable EXP onetime reward for the first time finishing it? For instance depending on lvl?

Even though I already discussed the quality / adequacy of both, the repeatable and the final reward, I'd like to point something out that we are about to oversee while criticizing the rewards:
The Event was meant to draw the community closer, which actually worked out very nicely. People were making guides, did assumptions on the unknown final prizes and pushed themselves and others to do the quest and succeeded as a community. I really appreciate what the developers of oRO came up with. It is now easy to look ungrateful by suggesting subjective and therefore inappropriate rewards.

The prizes of both, repeatable and final rewarding were random to a certain extend, yes. However, that's the nature of Ragnarok and is absolutely fine as everyone had the same chances.

Let's just appreciate the work they did to achieve this higher cause for us.
Thank you oRO staff for putting time and effort into this very neat quest, that everyone was free to do or not.
I actually feel closer to the community now, as we managed to get enough players to be eligable for the final reward, which I was very entertained by as the tension of opening a Jewelry Box is always real.
