24.28 Stockings

Stocking are unique items you can purchase from our website and HANG for you or your friends. 

Once hung, Ironbeard will show up around midnight each day. Stockings come in 4 varieties: Festive, Fancy, Grand, and Extravagant. Each stocking tier containing higher and higher values of gifts inside! That's not to say that you'll luck out if you stick with the Festive stockings, as they have a chance to contain the higher tiered gifts.

For every 5 stockings of each type you purchase, you'll receive either a gold or platinum stocking of that tier. If you purchase 5 fancy stockings, you'll get a gold (or platinum) fancy stocking. These special versions contain double the reward value as the regular versions.

Gold stockings will be filled on December 25th. Platinum stockings will be  filled January 1st. Unhung gold stockings will be converted to platinum versions after December 25. These tallies count over multiple purchases, so if you purchase 5 single stockings over the month, you'll get a special version with your 5th purchase.

Finally every hundred or so stocking that are opened, one lucky player will get a stocking loaded with a TON of extra goodies.

See all of the stockings you have hung.

OPEN <stocking>
Open your stocking for a fantastic surprise.

Hang a stocking for yourself in the room you are currently in. It will be filled with a surprise at midnight!

You can also hang stockings for other players. If you don't want them to know who it is from add ANONYMOUS to the end of the command.

Claim any stockings that have not been opened (but have been hanged) during the duration of the promotion.

Multi-faceted Gems

With the release of the goggles and the amulet, all stocking have a chance to have a bonus item this year. See HELP GOGGLES, AMULETS, and SCEPTERS for more information.

If you do not currently have a crystalline snowglobe, you will receive one instead of a gem.

- Normal stockings have about a 20% chance for a bonus gem.
- Fancy stockings have about a 50% chance for a bonus gem.
- Grand and Extravagant stockings will always have a gem in them.
