    The holidays are always the worst time for me to play.... I actually have less time to play than through other periods.... anyways, I could not log in during the past days and when I tried today I seem not to find any longer the statue which hands out the Christmas EM gift.
    I wonder why they are set for such a limited time for their gifts offerings...

    Does anyone know whether it is still available on any shard at the time of this post ?

    Thanks a lot and happy holidays!!

    I think I only got it on one or two characters on Origin :( Oh well.

    Lag was so bad on origin for a while that I couldn't get there easily and I gave up, then no time with the holiday season.

    Legends one is gone too, but I have two spares and you can have one if you need it.
    Just call for Zath during the weekend and I will give you one there. :)

    Today would have been the first day on which I have some time since the last weeks were well filled with RL matters.
    But oh well, at least I managed to collect on Drachenfels and Europa (on the later it was almost in the backyard of the house).

    To be honest, I think the timers were just fine. Chessie especially, as it was two full weeks. The others all were around from whenever event placed them, until Christmas day.

    Yes, Atlantic could have been moved to Blackthorn's castle sooner. Yes, Formosa *really* shouldn't have been so hard, nor should it have been in an SA-account-only location. Yes, Oceania's toybox had ADHD, and kept moving all over the place. And yes, Hokuto's EM can't spell, and needed to get the replacement toybox up much faster.

    But apart from Formosa, they were all quite easy to get, and every one of them had at least 7 days, up to 14, during which they could be received. I know I'm already carrying at least 70 toys on most shards (see How to thread). That seems long enough to me for a time-limited gift to be received. I only would have maybe changed them to expire at the end of Christmas in the latest possible time zone, rather than at 7 or 8 in the morning EST on Christmas day.

    I only wish we could have clarity from the EMs about Arirang and Balhae's lack of a toybox...
