Midwinter Blight will bring new seasonal activities and quests for players to complete in the Fractured Peaks region, which will include fighting the new themed enemies, completing themed events and quests, and finding new materials for crafting and rewards. You also have an NPC bard named Gillian who will be a part of the event, and players should expect to talk with this NPC fairly regularly.

There will also be a special Red-Clocked Terror, the seasonal boss who may have some special rewards. Some of these rewards include a new Aspect and Elixirs that have effects such as increasing EXP gains and other boons.
