I think Balto will instantly be my favorite Walker!
I'm with you on the 'chance to drop Snowballs' from the Faerie Atrium Gnomes. I'm not participating in the whole Snowball thing.
But collecting the Faerie Chests is pretty easy and they (the Christmas Gnomes) must have other drops too, especially after the Snowball event is over in February.
+ I like that the event is pretty straight foreword.
We know what to expect, and I think even with 2/3 days not playing but celebrating, it is still finishable (is that a word?)
Good luck to all participating!
