Side Quests

Sidequest: Present Hunt

Present Hunt is an everlasting Sidequest, similar to last year, where the player must run around the xmas world trying to search for Presents.

This year, Beandon decided to add a twist to the hunt and implement some new types of Presents to make it more exciting..

Colour Rarity Special Effect
Grey 393/400 (98.25%) Rewards the player with a Present and has a 0.25% chance to spawn a block bug.
Green 2/400 (0.5%) Rewards the player with some Bottle o' EnchantingExperience alongside letting out a stream of Bottle o' EnchantingExperience.
Blue 2/400 (0.5%) Rewards the player with some Flux BottleFlux alongside letting out a stream of Flux BottleFlux.
Gold 2/400 (0.5%) Rewards the player with some Gold NuggetCoins alongside letting out a stream of Gold NuggetCoins.
Black 1/400 (0.25%) Rewards the player with a random skin from a predefined loot table.

This year, there is an approximate total of 170 possible spots where presents can appear with approximately 65 presents in circulation at a time.

Rewards

The player is rewarded upon reaching a milestone (5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 50, 75, 100...) with a random piece of loot from a predefined table.
Alongside this, if the player has completed more than 5 milestones, they can also be rewarded with a random amount of Christmas CrackerChristmas Crackers (maximum being dependant on the amount of milestones completed, up to a maximum of 16).

There is also no limit to how many times you can find Max, but there is a special reward on the 7th find. Upon finding Max, the player must wait another 24 hours before being able to find him again (finding Max during this downtime will open a dialogue stating that the player has found him too early).
