December Seasonal Set: Northern Wanderer

Available every year from December 1st - 31st

Winter is coming (for many of you, it's already here!), and so are all our snow-covered, ice-laden, gift-bearing holiday events! To help ALL our heroes celebrate, this month's seasonal set features the Northern Wanderers - the Northern Wanderer and Fallen Wanderer armors.

December Set: The Northern Wanderer

Unlock the Northern Wanderer and Fallen Wanderer armors and all their accessories!

There are two ways to get the gear:

1) Total package: Buy the entire set directly through the website for $9.99 USD 

2) Individually: Buy each of the individual pieces from Garek the Traveling Gear Merchant in Battleon.

The total cost to buy all of the gear individually is 4,000 ACs, so getting all the gear from the Northern Wanderers pack is a pretty sweet deal (you save 2,000 ACs).

The set includes:

  • Northern Wanderer Armor
  • Fallen Wanderer Armor
  • 5 helms 
  • 6 capes
  • 3 weapons
  • character page badge

Frequently Asked Questions

Is this the same as the monthly upgrade bonus? 

Monthly upgrade bonus gear is an extra reward for buying AdventureCoin or Membership packages. Seasonal set packs are bought separately. Just like the Flame Dragon Warrior pack, you can buy the entire set directly, for one price, on our site. You can ALSO buy the individual pieces in-game.

This set will return EVERY December, so if you can't get it now, you'll have another chance next year!

If this isn't the monthly upgrade bonus, what IS the bonus in December?

Keep an eye on the Design Notes. More information will be posted soon!

What if I just want ONE of the items?

You're in luck! Talk to Garek in Battleon. He'll be selling the individual pieces of the set through December 31st.

Where do I get my gear if I buy the full set through the website?

You'll find it in your Book of Lore.

Last Chance for Harvest Hunters

Available every year from November 1st - 30th

November is when the Fall season REALLY hits in the United States. Pumpkin Spice everything is in stores, the leaves have fallen (or are starting to) and the temperatures around the underground lab finally drop below 70 degrees Fahrenheit. This is harvest time in the Northern Hemisphere, and Thanksgiving in the United States, Canada, China, Germany, Grenada, Japan, and Norfolk Island. To help ALL our heroes celebrate, this month's seasonal set features the Harvest Hunters - the HeroHunter and Lycan Stalker armors.

Unlock the Hero Hunter or Lycan Stalker armors and all the Harvest Hunter accessories!

There are two ways to get the gear:

1) Total package: Buy the entire set directly through the website for $9.99 USD 

2) Individually: Buy each of the individual pieces from Garek the Traveling Gear Merchant in Battleon. (starting tonight at 6PM EST)

The total cost to buy all of the gear individually is 4,000 ACs, so getting all the gear from the Harvest Hunters pack is a pretty sweet deal (you save 2,000 ACs).

The set includes:

  • Hero Hunter Armor
  • Lycan Stalker Armor
  • 3 helms 
  • 3 capes
  • 5 weapons

Read on for important information

A few important tips to remember:

  • All of this year's event rare items are available individually from the Black Friday Shop in your game menu until the event leaves December 9th.
  • In order to prevent shop abuse, the Dark Holiday 2022 Collection Chest cannot be sold.

We’re very sorry, but we cannot offer exchanges or compensation or exchanges on IoDA choices when an item is recoloured and released for Black Friday or Cyber Monday anymore.  The IoDA program allows you to access rare items you would not otherwise have access to. Due to this, and the fact that recolours are not the same as the original items, we can no longer give any additions bonus or compensation for these items.

* There were several items listed in previous versions of this post that were incorrectly named, or mistakenly added to the list (like the Cyber Matrix of Revontheus). Those have been updated or removed.
** If you purchased the Pandy Hoodie sweatshirt from HeroMart in 2014, you'll find the Shadow Pandy armor + helms added for free in your Book of Lore badge shop now.

*** If you purchased the 2014 TimeDragon Warrior upgrade pack, you will find these variants for free in your Book of Lore badge shop now.
