The trailer for the second For Honor seasonal event is here;

Looks very cool. (3 pages before someone noticed my pun. I'm disappointed in all of you.)

We got all the juicy details in today's Den, including trailers, rewards showcases, bundle plans and dates. I do encourage everyone to go read Candle's recap, it'll probably stay pinned until January.
There's also a full FAQ for the Frost Wind Festival here; https://forums.ubi.com/showthread.php/1812440-Frost-Wind-Festival-FAQ

For fun, and Archo's convinience, I'll post the story thread we get with the new Community Order's here as well, hopefully shining some light on this event, and the story behind it.


The Battle of the Twelve Days

Day I - "It started on a frigid winter's morn"

Day II - "“Fifty knights to their master sworn” "

Day III - "Marched with icy armor keeping time"

Day IV - "Down a treacherous valley towards Valkenheim"

Day V - "Unbeknownst to them the Samurai had similar thoughts"

Day VI - "For the bitter cold had emptied all their pots"

Day VII - "Food was scarce and the hunger was setting in"

Day VIII - "This battle each Faction needed desperately to win"

Day IX - "Twelve days of bloody battle saw warriors cut down"

Day X - "over the food they thought was in this Viking town"

Day XI - "On the twelfth day only one warrior stood"

Day XII - "Only to find that there had been no food"

Thus concludes the tale of the Battle of the Twelve Days.

It is. Though if they are 20,000 Steel outfits, I'll be a sore loser this event. I don't have 20,000 spare Steel. Already have a list of emotes, effects, and executions.... and two Mythic outfits...

They'll probably be priced like the Halloween masks: 15,000 steel during the event and 20,000 steel after the event.

If the new Ice Masks follow the same model as the Halloween Masks, they'll be 15,000 Steel during the event, and 20,000 after. So you might be able to save 5000 Steel. Remember we have some bonus Steel incoming from the Dedicated Server tests.

Well, yippy-kee-yay. It takes roughly 10-12 days to make 15,000 Steel, considering I play daily, with all orders.

Bah. :(

Yup these will be used to buy two effects and one emote; exactly 15,000 Steel. I'll be starting from 1k-ish at the start of this event.

The only confirmed details are new content (non specific as to what), a new temporary game mode and "glacial" music.

It's not unreasonable to assume there'd be a bundle eventually though, but keep in mind it's not confirmed.

Much obliged.

The Samurai one still rocks the best. I'm not too sure about the Knight one. I'll see if it's worth poppin' extra Steel on it.

As for Samurais, the demon mask (from the Halloween outfit) still looks best on the Shugoki. I think to make Shugoki my secondary, because the more I try using Highlander, the harder I fail. And Shugoki can look like a real demon.

Personally, Im not quite fond with the idea of "additional mask"

Its just weird having double mask, except for Higlander and Shaman.

I think its better to make special armour and weapon set for each event and can be bought with steel.

And I would like that the idea also applied to other armour/weapon set. Its just frustating wasting your steel for unwanted set.

I'm not quite sure what you mean by "double mask". If the new Masks work like the Halloween event ones, we're just talking about 3 new faction specific Mythic Outfits. What's wrong with that?
They did make a whole separate "Masks" tab for the customization menu, it'd feel silly if they only ever made 1 Mask outfit to go in there.

I would imagine, like during the Halloween event, all rewards are entirely cosmetic.

12-20-2017, 04:27 PM
Most likely not. Like the Halloween event, we'll probably be getting 1 new Mask Outfit per faction, possible emotes and/or effects, but not much more than that.

Nothing's confirmed though, I'm just assuming we'll get the same type, and amount of content we did for with the Halloween stuff.

12-20-2017, 04:31 PM
The new event will not only bring with it a blast of cold air to the game, but brand new winter-themed rewards for players to get. Players can snag some new battle outfits, new weapons, mood effects, emotes, and more by playing any game mode during the event. For a limited time, Ubisoft has announced players will be able to access a new mask outfit, which will be unique per faction, for a discounted price of 15,000 steel per Hero. A bundle featuring winter-themed items, which will change based on previously owned items, will also be available for the various Heroes starting on December 28.

...that stirs a memory. I remember a few months ago people talking about christmas weapons,people wanted the peacekeeper to have two pointed candy canes and the shugoki to have a christmas tree among other things and the reps passed that on.

So if this happens, it is kind of the community's fault >.>

Just watched the reveal of the masks and it is very clear Vikings did not get as much love this time around. The execution for the Mask outfit has very little actual effect that doesn't last very long. This is just from the reveal, so we will see what it looks like here soon, but it looked very underwhelming compared to the Knights awesome Mask outfit that included wings!!! Where the Vikings only get a "Ice Bison" skull pop up over the body that is very short compared to the werewolf effect from the last holiday event. This is my opinion but reinforces the theory that things like this need to be consistent among factions.

XJadeDragoonX
12-21-2017, 10:04 PM
I'm usually not one to complain but are we all gonna ignore how terrible that viking one is? It doesn't even cover the face. It has no detail. It looks like it's made out of snow the effect is minimal and short. And why bison? Pretty sure Vikings didn't even interact with bison. Why not a wolf? A bear? A raven? A boar? Literally anything else? That's really disappointing. Everything looks fantastic though so great work on that stuff.

The "new" blade for the Wardens is the exact same as Aragon. At least with the hilt and crossguard you changed some things, but no the blade is exactly the same as the Aragon blade. Thanks for giving us a gift we already had Ubisoft. May as well just skipped the whole new weapon for Warden lmao.

No, but it was my biggest beef. The hilt and crossguard are recycled Hell's Champion, but at least look somewhat different. Not every character got new weapons, and some of the ones that did are literally just "re-gifted" lmfao. The mask for the viking is bugged to all get out and isn't appealing at all. My point is, half of the content is miss and half of it is hit. Are there any plans to fix that? Or are we cool with only putting in effort for a couple characters at a time?

Considering that the majority of the stuff we're getting is free, I'd say we're pretty cool with it. So lets all chill out.
The Vikings Mask Outfit is probably the biggest issue, and that might need a developer response since it actually costs a lot of Steel, and the other 2 factions got really awesome Masks.

The full content we are entitled to, per the fine print on those legal agreements we all clicked "Accept" on but never read, entitles us to the core For Honor experience, which we have gotten.
Until the Halloween event actually happened, we had no idea we'd be getting so much free stuff for holiday events. Feast of the Otherworld and Frost Wind Festival content is all just free bonus stuff.

Like I said, these events are bonus things for us. They probably don't always have the perfect time and resources to make it exactly as they want, but we were never entitled to any of it to begin with.

Lmfao well can I get steel packs with money I've already put into the game then? It being free doesn't really justify unfinished and recycled content considering the price tag.

I would really like to know if the devs really are okay with putting out content like that.

Steel packs have always been optional. And it being free, and it being Christmas time, certainly offers the developers a bit of leeway with the free content they're not obligated to give us, in my opinion.
We all bought For Honor before this event was even announced. If it was worth the price tag before the free stuff, it most certainly is worth it after.

Tasty metaphor.

But the thing is; We were never promised two toppings. Until mid October this year, we had no idea we would be getting free seasonal content. Seasonal events weren't even a thing.

We were only ever promised one topping, but now we've gotten three toppings total, and two of them were free. Why would anyone be disappointed by that?

Dude, pepperoni and sausage is the same animal, that's a pretty good compromise. Obviously we all want the pepperoni, bacon, sausage, pepperoni and ham pizza, but hey, this pizza's free and it's sausage.
I can live perfectly happy with that.

I get why you're disappointed (I only main Vikings so I'm stuck with that lame *** mask outfit), but we could just as easily have gotten nothing at all this whole month. Instead we're actually getting a lot of cool content (good grief it's hard to avoid the ice puns), and all it costs is some time to play the game.

Anyone notice that the Vikings Blue Buffalo emote does not have the ice mask on while the execution is happening? The mask only pops up over the victim. I think if this is not an error the Vikings really got the least "cool" mask this event. The Samurai and the Knights are wicked awesome! Wings for the Knights, and a sweet dragon head the has yellow glowing eyes and mouth for the Samurai. Vikings get an Ice Mask that is mainly 2D other than the cool horns that extend out. I suggest they at least add the Ice Mask to the heroes face during executions. This would help a little but not a lot. Others thoughts on the Vikings Mask Mythic Outfit?

Since your playing as Centurion, you'll get the standard drops for that class of course. The event drops are random (think the weapon is specific) I main Kensie and during the Feast of the Otherworld it was one of the last heroes to get everything. Shinobi seems to be favored on my end, both events first items dropped were his outfit. So yeah it seems like some bad luck. Sorry to hear, but I hope you still have fun and unlock your Cent stuff.

I believe it was

Knights of an Ashfeld Lord

Candle to the rescue, added the text and now the whole 5 days story lines are up.

Good man, outside their instead of there, that's the one. I knew knights, I was trying to figure out the rhyme.

Awesome, thanks for the correction.

Made the edit, but if anyone else notices I got one of the lines wrong, please let me know.

Why is the bundle, after looting, so expensive for this event? The Feast of the Otherworld bundle was a little under 10000 after looting all, this event the bundle is 22500 after looting all.
The Feast I was able to buy the bundle for 15 heroes for a little over 140000 steel, this event I could only get 6 for that amount. I'm feeling cheated. Annoyed that for just a mask outfit and emote (same as last event) it costs over double the amount.

The Frost Wind bundle has around 3-4 more color schemes for each character than the Otherworld bundle did, might explain the discrepancy.

After you pick up all loot, you're left with just the mask outfit and emote. (which can't be looted) same as last event. Why are the same items over twice as much this time around? That's what makes me feel cheated.

Did some research, apparently the bundle prices were bugged during the Halloween event. I can only assume the prices for the Frost Wind bundles are more accurate this time around.
There's much more information on the For Honor Reddit if you don't mind reading through a lot of threads.

Happy to help, sorry the answer wasn't what you were hoping for. At least you must have saved thousands of Steel on the Halloween bundles.

All 12 parts of the Battle of the Twelve Days story is now up, with added italics for dramatic effect.

Much obliged, comrade.

Now that I think of the entire message, it's a sort of a poem, well, rather lazily thrown together, without much relevance... or if anything, maybe, just maybe, it tells the state of things post-game, after Apollyon's death, those 50 knights having as leader the 'New Lord Warden' from the Story Mode, and Valkenheim was already in shambles thanks to Apollyon's campaign, hence why no food; and the Samurai had dwindled resources because of the Viking raids. This might explain it.

Thanks much again for putting it all together for the rest of us; and I'd happily discuss this with ArchoVax when he sees it.

I know its not really not related to frostwind but does anyone know anything about year 2?

So far, speculations are:

- Dedicated servers
- Character reworks
- Fixing of various technical issues
- Reworking the Frost Wind Viking Mask
- Rebalancing Shaman again

And hopefully more things, if the devs do listen to community feedback on the overall betterment and improvement of this game. But, short of character reworks and the Viking Mask, nothing has been officially confirmed.

It was fun! I think the Snowball effect is priced too high however at 10k Steel. Its really worth 7k since its temporary. If they made it permanent, then 10k would be fine. Now to spend from my 75k steel...

It was an alright event. I liked the Halloween event much more though. The presentation was better and very iconic, the music for the Halloween event was just fantastic! The skeleton minions were also much cooler and it felt like more thought had been put into them. The ice minions only really had a different skin on them with no additional voice work done for them which made them feel kind of out of place. And the Otherworld Dominion mode with tougher minions was a much better designed mode than the ledge cheese fest on a timer mode. I thought the Frost Wind mode was very lackluster and not very fun to play.

On the pro side, the Samurai and Knight Frost Wind masks were really cool. Hopefully the Vikings get a worthy one eventually.

The Halloween event was probably a bit more on point.

Frost Wind was pretty fun nonetheless, but there's certainly room for improvement.

I'd like to see snow/blizzard effects added to all the maps in all game modes, 'tis winter after all. The ice Brawl map could do with some work, like make the ice patches smaller so you have more room to navigate, or try to cut your enemy off.
It'd also be a fun concept to explore for future maps, that it changes throughout a round.

Hopefully we'll get another Frost Wind festival next Christmas with a ton of new stuff and improvements made.

I agree, the Halloween event was better but not by much. They should have made all maps snowing all the time to make you feel like you were more a part of the event(could have made the halloween event all night maps). They should have made the event mode, ice brawlers, PvAi also and not just PvP. I don't play PvP due to lack of dedicated servers, so I did not play that mode at all. I probably still wouldn't have played it much anyway, cuz I'm not a duelist, and won't be until they balance everyone and there are no more freaking changes to gameplay and heroes. When I play PvP, it is 4v4 and this mode was not 4v4 so I would not have played due to only playing duelist, which I wont be until the game is more "polished". MAKE ALL MODES,EVEN EVENTS HAVE A PvAi OPTION!!!!!! I did like how they added the weapons to the event. I would like to see more of that at later events. Finally, they did a good job with the Mask Outfits for the Halloween event. They all had flames, the executions were consistent on where masks and effects appeared, and they all were different but not enough to call for a re-work. This event, not so much. The Knights were favored because they got wings and mask, Samurai got a mask on all the time(executions) and it was a cool mask with detail and multiple colors, while the viking mask barely resembles a buffalo that doesn't jive with Vikings, that doesnt appear on the hero during executions, no real detail in the mask, it only covers the face, while the other outfits cover full head. I just don't see how this got the green light after seeing the other mask outfits. Over all okay event, could have been better, but maybe next years event will heed these suggestions.

I agree with what most folks are saying about the event. The ability to get weapons actually had me using characters that I wouldn't normally use. A must if they continue that trend is increasing our inventory. I can't even keep all the Nobushi staffs because my inventory is too full. An increase to 90 or 100 would help. The Halloween event music was definitely a highlight and the added damage by the minions for the event was pretty cool addition and made you be less careless hacking away at Zone B!

Looking forward to what the For Honor team will bring in 2018! I don't mind getting my head handed to me as often as I do because the game is so much fun (when I'm not getting disconnected).

The event ended on the 4th dude. It ran without any issues as I recall.

The last day or two's server issues are very uncommon, and they affected a number of Ubisoft services and games, not just For Honor.

He is just talking about the known disconnect issues that haven't been fixed because dedicated servers are not implemented yet. Some people have better experiences with connecting than others, so there is no sure way to say it works because that might not be the case for him. With that said, we can all agree we need them dedicated servers as soon as possible so everyone can enjoy the events to their fullest.
