One of the best parts of our videogame community is seeing heroes helping each other. And Chilly wants to help everyone on Lore have the merriest Frostval EVER! That's why our AdventureCoin Gifting event is back* to give you a way to spread cheer to your fellow heroes and unlock rewards for your generosity. Our Frostval Gifting event will run from December 16th - January 9th. Prize packs will be awarded later that week.
Talk to Chilly in Battleon and complete his Event Participation quest. Once the event begins on December 16th, your character will be ready to give or receive AdventureCoins! Read on for more news about what the event is and what's changed since last year!
Log in and talk to Chilly in Battleon. Choose to donate AdventureCoins, check out a list of all the generous Heroes who've donated, or see the items in the Generosity Coin Merge Shop.
You can donate to a single random Hero in the following amounts:
250 / 500 / 1,000 / 1,500 / 2,000 / 5,000 / 10,000
You can donate to multiple individuals in the following amounts:
The biggest change from last year's event is that instead of Leaderboard rank-based rewards, this year everyone that meets the reward tier goal will get the prize. Reward tiers are based on how much you donate, and there are no limits on how many people can get the reward.
* With a few changes and improvements.
** Important note: we cannot refund your donation. The game will ask if you're sure you want to donate the amount you choose. Make sure you check and double-check before hitting the "confirm" button.
Chilly always likes rewarding generosity. That's why he has exclusive rewards for heroes who donate to others. There are two types of rewards: Generosity Coin Merge Shop items + Donation Reward Packs.
The first time you donate each day, you'll automatically get a Generosity Coin. Spend the Coins in the Merge Shop to get exclusive gear.

New Gear This Year:
The shop gear is seasonal, so if you can't get everything you want this year, you'll have another chance next year! This year's Generosity Coin merge shop also has a wider selection + variety of items, based on your feedback after last year's event.
Every time you donate ACs to a random Hero, it will contribute to your donation total. The more you donate, the more rewards you'll unlock!
Tier 7: 100,000 ACs Donated
* These will not be locked to owner-only, so invite your friends + guildmates to your house!
Tier 6: 75,000 ACs Donated
Tier 5: 50,000 ACs Donated
Tier 4: 25,000 ACs Donated
Tier 3: 10,000 ACs Donated
Tier 2: 5,000 ACs Donated
Tier 1: 1,000 ACs Donated
All donators: 250 ACs Donated
In addition to their exclusive prize packs, any hero that donates at least 5,000 ACs will automatically unlock all of the merge shop items in their Book of Lore badge shop at the end of the gifting event.
To recognize their generosity, we've got a list of the Top 1,000 Heroes who've donated during this event on our Frostval 2022 AC Gifting Event page. You can see that inside your account manager here.
New this year: We added the option to hide yourself from the top donators list. That way, those who prioritize their privacy can still be generous without calling attention to themselves.
We saw a flood of happiness after last year's event from excited heroes. We also saw people who didn't have as good an experience, So we asked what you'd like to see different if we held the event again this year. We got a huge number of positive messages and a lot of great, constructive feedback. The team met after the event and then again a month ago to plan out how we could best implement the most requested changes. And that's how this year's event came to be.
We hope you enjoy it! We've done our best to make sure the event is a good one, and that you can get and give rewards to other heroes so everyone has a very happy holidays!
You can read more about all of the changes and the reasons behind them in this Design Notes post.

What are the requirements to receive a gift?
How much can I donate per day?
There is no limit to how many times you can donate each day. (There is a limit on how many upgrade packs an account can buy each day.)
How much can I win each day?
There is no limit to how many times in a day you can receive a random AC gift.
Can I choose who gets my donation?
Nope! In the spirit of the season, your gift will go to a random eligible hero. Make someone's day bright... even if you don't know who they are!
Can staff accounts get on the top donators list or give to players?
Nope! Team members' staff accounts can only give to other staff accounts. They will not appear on the public list. Team members' normal (regular player/non-staff) accounts can give to other players and may appear on the top donators list.
How will I be notified if I get a gift?
You'll see a message when you login if you've received a gift since your last login note
What are the reward tiers? Will they go rare?
Find more details on the reward tiers next week! Tier rewards will go rare, generosity shop gear is seasonal.
How long will this be available?
Through January 9th, prizes to be awarded later on that week.
Does the amount of AC donated affect your merge coins received per donation?
You can get a max of 1 Generosity Coin per day, awarded the first time you donate for the day. Every donation you make will contribute to your reward milestones total.
So, is this REALLY totally random?
It really is! The game will look for any eligible account on any server and will randomly choose who to give your prize to. You cannot specify which character will get your ACs.
What if I'm offline?
The game will look for any account that was logged in within the last 24 hours. If you aren't online when you get a gift, it will still be added to your account the next time you log in.
When do I get notified?
There are currently a few ways of being notified you received a gift: when doing battles or switching maps in-game, or when you log in.
What if I make a mistake and donate the wrong amount?
The game will ask you each time if you’re sure you want to donate that amount. We cannot give refunds for incorrect donations, so please check and double-check before you hit the donate button and before you confirm the donation amount.
What if I pick the wrong item in the Generosity Shop? Can I get my Generosity Coin back?
We cannot give refunds for Generosity Coin shop purchases, so please check and double-check before you spend a GC on an item in the merge shop.
Can I see how much I've donated, or how much I've received?
Yes! Log in to your account manager to see your gifts and what you've given.
