Fae Yule Quests Guide

RIFT Fae Yule Quests Guide Feature Image

The Fae Yule World Event is filled with a whole bunch of quests separated into three phases.

Fae Yule 2015 Phases:

  • Phase 1: Remembering the Yulemother (12/10/15 – 12/16/15)
  • Phase 2: Reclaiming Fae Yule (12/17/15 – 12/23/15)
  • Phase 3: Fae Yule Celebration (12/24/15 – 1/7/16)

Each phase has 1 story quest that rewards a Dark Ice Bell and 10x Dark Icicles currency, as well as a variety of daily quests that reward Unique Snowflakes currency.

Where to Begin?

Sanctum

faeyule2013_sanctum1

Quest hub for Sanctum can be found right outside the main building next to the Statues of the Messengers of the Vigil.

Meridian

faeyule2013_meridian1

The quest hub for Meridian can be found right outside the main fort in the mid-section between Meridian’s inner and outer walls.

Plane of Water

There’s also 3 Daily quests in Nightmare Tide found at:

  • Ghar Station Rosh at /setwaypoint 5512 6371 in Draumheim; and

(Thanks to Rhynn for the Nightmare Tide Quests info!)


The Quests

The Fae Yule Quests Guide is split up into 4 main categories:

  • Faelight Sparkle Returns Quest, which is available during all three phases and rewards Tier 3 gear.
  • Nightmare Tide Quests, which are available during all three phases.
  • Phase 1: Remembering the Yulemother quests.
  • Phase 2: Reclaiming Fae Yule quests.
  • Phase 3: Fae Yule Celebration quests.

Some of the dailies for previous phases are available in later phases.

Note: Token Vials work on Unique Snowflakes but do not work on Dark Icicles. This is intended.


Faelight Sparkle Returns

Questgiver: Stuttk Fyrirthig in Flargle Plaza, Draumheim at /setwaypoint 5623 5453.
Objective: Collect 500 Faelight Sparkles.
Reward: Faelight Sparkling Shard of Wonder.

First up, collect the ‘Faelight Sparkle Returns’ quest from Stuttk Fyrirthig at either /setwaypoint 5623 5452 in Flargle Plaza, Draumheim, or amongst the Nightmare Tide questgivers in Tempest Bay. Stuttk Fyrirthig is one of the PvP Weekly NPCs.

The quest became available after Patch 3.5 so you didn’t have to wait for Fae Yule to begin officially.

You must collect 500 Faelight Sparkles.

Faelight Sparkle Returns Quest

Farming Faelight Sparkles

Here’s how you can farm Faelight Sparkles:

  • 6x from Random Level 65 Warfront Win if you used up a daily Random charge.
  • 2x from Random Level 65 Warfront Win if don’t have any Random charges left.
  • 6x from Random Level 65 Expert Dungeon if you used up a daily Random charge.
  • 2x from Random Level 65 Expert Dungeon if don’t have any Random charges left.
  • 4x from certain Nightmare Tide Dailies/Weeklies:
    • “Spirit of Adventure” Weekly Instant Adventure quest.
    • “Five If By Sea” Weekly NT Zone Event quest.
    • “Cerebral Catharsis” Weekly Raid Rift quest.
    • “Sea of Ladon” Daily Raid Rift quest.
  • 10x from a Conquest win when looting Conquest Chest.
  • 1x from Zone Events.

The Faelight Sparkle appears in your Rift Loot Bag and then in your Quest Log item slots (press “l“), or Inventory if your Quest Log item slots are full.

Note: For Conquest Wins, the Conquest Chest is located (for the winning faction) at the center of the map for Conquest: Stillmoor.

Tip: If you are going to zone event farm, consider using a Rift Event Tracker. Nightmare Tide zone events tend to be the most likely to be completed, and Unstable/Fae Yule Gift zone events will never fail, completing after lasting 30min.

Sparkling Shard of Wonder

The Faelight Sparkle Returns quest is a one-time only quest that rewards your choice of either a Sparkling Shard of Wonder or a Reinforced Sparkling Shard of Wonder.

These contain one random piece of Tier 3 raid armor or accessories from The Mind of Madness raid. The normal one has DPS/Heal gear whereas the Reinforced has Tank gear.

(Thanks to Rhynn and Pinkmink@Laethys for the information on the Nightmare Tide Fae Yule quests!)


Phase 1: Remembering the Yulemother

All Phase 1 questgivers are at the Fae Yule quest hub marked on the map in Sanctum/Meridian. A lot of the dailies re-appear in later phases, so this section lists a lot of quests compared to later phases.

Seasons Greetings! (Story)

Questgiver: Greatfather Frost
Objective: Invite Atrophinius to the Fae Yule celebration.
Reward: Dark Ice Bell + 10 Dark Icicles.
(Dark Ice Bells have a chance of dropping Puppet and Lights companion pets as well as Fae Yule interactive items and a rare chance at a 34-slot bag.)

Atrophinius is located in Silverwood at /setwaypoint 6404 2474. The location is the same for both Guardians and Defiants. (This is not a bug!)

A Frosty Free-For-All (Daily)(Random)

Questgiver: Greatfather Frost
Objective: Hit 8 combatants with a snowball.
Reward: 25 Unique Snowflakes and a Jingling Bell.
(Jingling Bells drop a handful of Unique Snowflakes as well as a chance at a Fae Yule Food item.)

The “A Frosty Free-For-All” quest shares a random roster with the “Dashing Through the Snow” daily.

faeyule2013_sanctum2

For this Daily quest, you need to find the ring of Snowmen in Sanctum/Meridian. It will be indicated on your map.

Shortly after going inside the ring, you will receive a reactive called “Snowball”. Target another player and use Snowball on them to increase your quest objective.

Note: Players are immune for 7-8 seconds after they have turned into a snowball, so if your reactive is inactive, you’ll have to wait till their debuff drops.

Unfortunately you won’t be able to see the debuff on anyone other than those you have personally turned into a snowball unless you have unticked “Show only my debuffs on the target”  and “Show only my Buffs on target and party members” in Settings -> Interface -> Combat.

If you have the settings above unticked, you can right-click on the debuff that appears on yourself when someone hits you with a snowball to quickly remove the debuff, thus allowing others to quickly complete their objectives.

What happens when you are the only one in the circle? No problem – every few seconds, an NPC will run from a random side of the circle to the other side whom you can use your snowball on.

Once completed, you can accept your reward via the Reward Bag (i.e. you don’t turn your quest in to an NPC):

rewardicon

Dashing Through the Snow (Daily)(Random)

Questgiver: Velana

Gifts of the Yulemother (Daily)(Random)

faeyule2013_bahhumbug

You’ll find ‘Humbug’ NPCs walking around in Sanctum and Meridian. Target them and use the Yulemother’s Gift quest item on them (appears in your quest tracker and quest window) to turn them into ‘Revelers’. They will usually disappear shortly after turning into a Reveler.

You can denote the ‘Humbug’ NPCs both by their name and the cloud over their heads. Players will randomly also have this cloud over their heads and you can use the quest item on them as well.

Macro for Humbug NPCs

If you are going to do this every day, you can make a target macro to speed things up. Hit ESC -> Macros. Find an empty Macro slot, choose an icon, name it then type the below in the ‘Commands’ box:

tar Humbug

Click Save. Throw the macro onto a hotkey and spam away to find the closest Humbug.

If you happen to get a cloud over your own head, you can target yourself (click your portrait) and use the Yulemother’s Gift on yourself as well!

Reward will appear in your Reward bag.

Cheer Up! (Daily)(Random)

Questgiver: Thadmore
Objective: Collect Stolen Holiday Cheer from rift creatures.
Reward: 25 Unique Snowflakes and a Jingling Bell.

This quest involves killing rift creatures (Invasions, Rifts, Strongholds, Zone Events). It appears as part of a rotation (i.e. might not be available every day). Loot them when you have this quest up to obtain Stolen Holiday Cheers.

Reward will appear in your Reward bag.

Holiday Thievery! (Daily)(Random)

Questgiver: Thadmore
Objective: Collect Stolen Gifts from Air rifts that grant experience 0/2.

You must be mentored to a level close to or at the Air rift’s level to get the quest item. Right-click your portrait -> Select Ascended Level and then choose a level close to the mobs in the rift.

Reward will appear in your Reward bag.

Stormproofing the Wardstones (Daily)(Random)

Questgiver: Velana

Reward: 25 Unique Snowflakes and a Jingling Bell.

faeyule2013_nexus

Simply go to any wardstone/sourcewell you can find and press on the Nexus Infusion Ability next to the wardstone’s portrait. It doesn’t matter if the wardstone is already fully buffed to max level, and it doesn’t matter what level the wardstone is. This will complete the quest.

There’s a wardstone just outside Sanctum past the bridge, and one just below the steps at the entrance to Meridian.

Note: You will need a Planar Charge to upgrade a wardstone. These are gained from closing Rifts, standing over destroyed Planar Crystals, using Aspect of the Ancients consumable or using Planar Attunement (Level 50+) abilities that grant Planar Charge.

Quest reward will appear in your Reward bag.

Sledding & Snowmen (One-time)

Questgiver: Donner
Objective: Enter the large portal and speak to the Sledding Enthusiast
Reward: 1,680XP

faeyule2013_sledding1

This is a simple quest to lead-up to the main Sledding quests. The large portal is in Sanctum/Meridian. You can’t miss it!

This will port you to Iron Pine Peak where the Sledding quests are. The “Sledding & Snowmen” quest is not a requirement for doing the Sledding repeatables in Iron Pine Peak so you can skip it if you want. Only rewards a small amount of experience.

If you need to get to the Sledding quests manually, they are located slightly south-west of Whitefall in Iron Pine Peak.

faeyule2013_sleddinglocation

Sled Slalom (Repeatable)

Questgiver: Merry (Iron Pine Peak)
Objective: Grab a sled at the top of the hill. Then go through all Gates (flags).
Reward: 5 Unique Snowflakes

You can get to the top of the hill via standing in the blue jumppad. This will port you to the top of the hill where the sleds are (only active when you are on the sled quest).

faeyule2013_sleddingjumppad

As indicated; grab a sled.

sledgrab

Now slide through the middle of each set of flags/gates. Below is what a flag/gate looks like – just go in-between them to progress the quest.

faeyule2013_slidegates

Run over snowmen on the way down to complete the other quest, “Snowmen Snowpocalypse (Daily)” below.

Speak to Merry to receive your reward. This is a Repeatable quest, but if you’re farming Unique Snowflakes – it is better to close Rifts/destroy Invasions than it is to repeat this quest.

Snowmen Snowpocalypse (Repeatable)

Questgiver: Merry (Iron Pine Peak)
Objective: Grab a sled at the top of the hill. Run down 10 Snowmen!
Reward: 5 Unique Snowflakes

As indicated; grab a sled using the instructions in “Sled Slalom (Daily)” quest above.

Next, run down 10 Snowmen that are in the area. You can complete this alongside “Sled Slalom (Daily)” quest at the same time by making sure to slide in-between the flags/gates.

Note: You can slide uphill as well as downhill.

Speak to Merry to receive your reward. This is a Repeatable quest, but if you’re farming Unique Snowflakes – it is faster to close Rifts/destroy Invasions.


Phase 2: Reclaiming Fae Yule

Phase 2 has a new story quest “Surly Sober Satyr” as well as some new dailies.

faeyule2013_atro

Surly Sober Satyr (One Time)

  • Ask Greatfather Frost for some Wassail.
  • Collect Frostblossom 0/5.
  • Collect Nutleaf 0/5.
  • Collect Winterglory 0/5.

Reward: Dark Ice Bell + 10 Dark Icicles

Speak to Atrophinius at any Fae Yule quest hub to get this quest. Then talk to Greatfather Frost right next to Atrophinius. He’ll ask you to collect 5x Frostblossom, Nutleaf and Winterglory.

These are all located in Freemarch and will show up in your map marker. And yes, both Guardians and Defiants will have to go to Freemarch. (This is not a bug!)

Wassail for Atrophinius (Daily)(Random)

Questgiver: Atrophinius
Objective: Collect 5 Bowls of Fae Wassail.
Reward: 25 Unique Snowflakes + Jingling Bell

faeyule2013_wassail

After you complete the Story Quest “Surly Sober Satyr”, you will be able to do the daily from Atrophinius. Same thing as the Story Quest, only collect 5 bowls of Wassail.

Baffling Crucia’s Winds (Daily)(Random)

Questgiver: Thadmore
Objective: Close Air rifts that grant experience 0/2.
Reward: 25 Unique Snowflakes and a Jingling Bell.

“Baffling Crucia’s Winds” requires that you close Air rifts that grant experience (so you may need to mentor down to around the level of the rifts you are closing). It’s more or less the same as “Holiday Thievery!” but without the Stolen Gifts quest items.

Quest reward will appear in your Reward bag.

Deck the Halls (Daily)(Random)

Questgiver: Merga
Objective: Place 5 Fae Yule Wreaths on the walls at the Lodge of the Planes/Spirit of Rha’Zade
Reward: 25 Unique Snowflakes + Jingling Bell

Spirit of Rha’Zade (Defiant) Entrance:

faeyule2013_wreaths_meridianentrance

Once inside, click on the Quest item ability in your quest-tracker or Quest window (default key “L“) and then click on an empty space on the inside walls of the building.

faeyule2013_wreaths_wall

The Safest Way! (Daily)(Random)

Questgiver: Thadmore
Objective: Kill rift creatures that grant experience 0/15.
Reward: 25 Unique Snowflakes and a Jingling Bell.

This quest involves killing rift creatures (Invasions, Rifts, Strongholds, Zone Events). It appears as part of a rotation (i.e. might not be available every day). You’ll need to mentor down to a level at or around the rift creatures you kill in order to get credit for the quest.

Reward will appear in your Reward bag.


Phase 3: Fae Yule Celebration

Gift for a Bogling (Story)

Questgiver: Merga, <Grandfather Frost’s Assistant>
Objective: Recover Stolen Gift Piles from the forces of Crucia 0/5.
Reward: 1 Dark Ice Bell + 10 Dark Icicles

The Stolen Gift Piles are located in Iron Pine Peak, inside the Howling Caves to the north of Whitefall at /setwaypoint 3604 1450. Simply click on the piles inside the cave to progress the quest.

RIFT Fae Yule Quests Gift for a Bogling 2

About Respawns: The Stolen Gift Piles do not respawn on a timer. Instead, there are multiple spawn locations and when one Stolen Gift Pile is picked up, another will respawn at one of the empty locations. There’s no point in waiting around for one to spawn unless there are other players picking them up elsewhere.

Yuletide Exchange (Daily)

Questgiver: Rellop
Objective: Collect Undelivered Gift from pile near Rellop; Enter Wreath Portal; Give Gift to NPC; Enter Wreath Portal; Turn-in to Rellop.
Reward: 25 Unique Snowflakes + Jingling Bell

For Guardians

Rellop is located at the top-most floor of Sanctum (for Guardians) at approx. (7525,3054). Click here for a map.

rellopp

For Defiants

Rellop is located at the top floor of Meridian’s Orphiel’s Spire (for Defiants) at approx. (6233,5076). Note, do NOT take the Lift/Teleporter. Rollop is located just above the teleporter accessed via the ramps. Click here for a map.

rolloplocationmeridian2

Once you speak to Rellop and obtain the quest, there should be gifts that are interactable around him. Pick a gift up, then jump through the large Wreath portal. This will randomly teleport you to a location in Telara where there will be an NPC you can interact (has a speech bubble) to give the gift to.

You should then be able to go through a Wreath Portal very close by to return to Rellop and collect your reward. The reward will then appear in your quest reward bag (the diamond icon).

Note: Sometimes the Wreath Portal may take a moment before it appears. Be careful when you are teleported to a boat because you may not be able to jump back up onto the boat if you were to jump off it into the water. Just wait a moment and a Wreath Portal should appear at the back of the boat.

That’s The Fae Spirit (Daily)

Questgiver: Greatfather Forst
Objective: Use a Bowl of Fae Wassail; /Kiss in three locations.
Reward: 25 Unique Snowflakes + Jingling Bell

This daily involves using a Bowl of Fae Wassail dotted around Sanctum/Meridian which will turn you into a Faerie or Satyr. Then you type /kiss whilst in the locations indicated on the mini-map (you don’t need to target anyone).

bowloffaewassail

Note: When you use a Bowl of Fae Wassail you’ll be turned into a Faerie or Satyr and will be unable to mount up. You can actually right-click the buff you get on your buff bar and this will remove the disguise. You can then proceed to mount up and go to the three locations and type /kiss without dismounting or targeting anyone.

Sanctum Mini-Map Indicators.
