<p>Since you all have been so great at starting these for <em><a href="http://forums.station.sony.com/eq2/posts/list.m?topic_id=521606" target="_blank">Nights of the Dead</a> </em>and<a href="http://forums.station.sony.com/eq2/posts/list.m?topic_id=521785" target="_blank"> <em>Errolisi Day</em></a>, I thought I'd start a Frostfell one for you as well, especially since Frostfell is my favorite holiday <img src="/eq2/images/smilies/8a80c6485cd926be453217d59a84a888.gif" border="0" /></p><p>Thanks for sharing your ideas! </p><p>~Dexella</p>

<p>You're pure awesome. I'll edit this with ideas ~</p><p>I'd love to see some iceskate-able tiles, seeing as one room in my Qeynos home turns into an ice rink every year. Also something like the blue sky tiles from Moonlight, but with falling snow. Motion, motion!</p><p>A stack of presents, maybe three on top of each other. Presents in more colors, if not possible.</p><p>While talking about presents, I'd LOVE having one that you could make and customize the tag. Nothing would be in it, but you could mouse over and have it say "To, from" or something similar.</p><p>Some pillows or paintings in Frostfell motifs.</p><p>Echoing the statement below with craftable snowglobes. Tinkerers could make them.</p><p>Some of those little red birds that are always associated with that time of year. People have always wanted just birds by themselves, and you could hang them as ornaments on a tree or perch one on your banister.</p><p>Music boxes. I can remember them way, way back being given as gifts, but honestly can't remember if they've been in recent years. One could play the Frostfell Village music, as a substitute for the snowglobes!</p><p><img src="/eq2/images/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" /></p>

<p>I'd love to see:</p><p>A falling-snow effect ... not big snowflake crystals, but more like flakes of snow.  Like that rose-petal item that was a donation for the Japanese Tsunami disaster ... but a bit more so, and with a bit of a drift effect rather than straight down.  I'd love to be able to use something like that to have gentle snow falling from above onto mounds and snowdrifts.</p><p>Special wintery plants with snow effect on the branches/leaves, or frosty, or with icicles hanging from them. (Could be used all year round in Halas, too!)</p><p>Placeable crackers!</p><p>Garlands, strings of lights, paper chains -without- big hanging things at each end.</p>

heartstopper 08-28-2012 09:42 PM

<p>Trees that stay lit.</p><p>hats that don't hide our hair.</p><p>sexy elf outfits (not the gaudy ones we have now)</p><p>plates of yams with roasted marshmellows.</p><p>Yule logs</p><p>frost fell paintings.</p>

Raienya 08-28-2012 11:11 PM

<p>I'll probably get pounded for suggesting this, but:</p><p>Craftable snowglobes. A lot of us weren't around when some of the earlier snowglobes were released, and those cannot be found except on the broker. If we could make our own, that would be swell.</p><p>Strands of twinkling lights for indoor hanging on walls, ceilings.</p><p>Wreaths (plain or bowed) with decorations to put on them.</p><p>Different food items.</p><p>Frostfell themed plates, silverware, and glasses.</p><p>Oh, and nothing on the SC store, please and thanks.</p>

Hiroku-San 08-29-2012 12:23 AM

<p>How about a cloud mount that snows on the ground. Would have to fly of course. Or maybe a reindeer mount quest. How about the food stuff going higher than level 10 lol. And put the collecatbles somewhere other than on the ice since it is almost impossible to stop and get them(at least I had a hard time doing it). How about a spell per class that does some sort of frostfell effect on mobs.</p>

Deveryn 08-29-2012 01:38 AM

<p>I'm still holding out hope for a condensed group of resources to craft from, but what I'd really like to see is year-round access to fuel and craft stations. The stations don't even have to be permanent. They could be a tinkered portable station.</p><p>I'm usually enjoying the real holiday season and I end up not having the time to plan much of anything to do with the items. I want to be able to craft from these recipes when I want and not be forced into making a bunch of items I may or may not need and have them take up precious space in storage.</p>

Aunt4God 08-29-2012 02:19 AM

<p>This isn't quite decorating themed, but I"m getting tired of the same old quests every year that I have to run if I want the new house item reward.  New questlines, or continuations of the old lines....give Gardy back her/his job (never could tell if that's a guy or gal) or have the goblins do something different this year to him/her.   More about Mcscrooge or the fae Queen's story line......Continue the dragon baby story because not all of us have done the raid.   And the Frostfell icy fog thingy is very hard to get to....could something be done to make that less tedious to do?  Only one harvest, then have to zone out, back in, run back up to it.......I do love the fairly lights additions from last year, and so many nice, pretty things!</p>

Ellarae 08-29-2012 03:03 AM

A Frostfell Tree that you can place decorations on like you can place clothes on a mannequin. And obviously lots of different decorations for it.

Absyntheea 08-29-2012 08:20 AM

<p>New Frostfell clothes, with new meshes. (Please no beastlord pajama mesh stuff.... )</p><p>I think my biggest wish would be placeable frostfell rainbows, like the ones in wonderland.. Quested, crafted or bought with E'ci tokens ONLY. (please not SC bought!)</p><p>Snowbunnies? Pets, mounts, plushies.. anything.. but we need BUNNIES! (yes, I know you can put a hat on a manequin. <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /> )</p>

Gwynn 08-29-2012 11:08 AM

<p>"Trees that stay lit."</p><p>Yes, please!</p><p>"hats that don't hide our hair."</p><p>Yes, in general.</p><p>- Wreaths that look like Frostfell wreaths, not with pastel lights.</p><p>- Wall-mounted evergreen garlands</p><p>- Open present boxes (to show the gifts)</p><p>- Wind-up keys for toys</p>

Jexi 08-29-2012 03:06 PM

<p>My big wish this year is solid colored craftable tiles and blocks to match the current Frostfell colors or even eci token buyable format. These would match the gift box and costume colors without patterns nor lumpy textures of any kind, but I wouldn't mind additional tiles with patterns also as well. I was hoping for just a very subtle texture with bold coloring on it. Something that doesn't appear to be fabric I mean because I would not tile my floor for frostfell with gift wrap. You could always recycle your festival textures and color them brightly with the new shades. </p><p><strong>Solid tile colors:</strong></p><p><strong><span style="color: #ff0000;">fire engine red tile</span> (all we have now is a dark red & stained glass)</strong></p><p><strong><span style="color: #0000ff;">royal blue tile</span> (all we have now is a teal color and a stained glass)</strong></p><p><strong><span style="color: #008000;">grass green tile</span> (we have several grassy pattern ones & a stained glass)</strong></p><p><strong><span style="color: #ffff00;">bright yellow tile</span> (theres no yellow anywhere except a stained glass)</strong></p><p><strong>-These colors would match Frostfell very well.</strong></p><p>** PS-I wish I could craft Frostfell items all year round, or at least quest for a special Frostfell crafting table set to use in my home like the current unique forges do. I do not like storing these items at all. This is the only time of year I don't craft all that much because of how much trouble it causes me. I usually end up doing without because I dread storing anything for later. I know I can craft Frostfell again during Bristlebane, but its not comforting. lol</p>

quiarrah 08-29-2012 07:37 PM

<p>How about a Cute little Santa suit. . . .a bustier top and a short skirt or even shorts! And High boots. The same craftable stuff to make it as the hats and robe but less material. . .. Literally! (maybe different colors too . . .REd, Blue, Green and GOld)</p>

Mythed 08-29-2012 09:00 PM

<p>Ok, mine have alot to do with food ...</p><p>Plates with food on them</p><p>stuffing "casserole"</p><p>Salad</p><p>different fruit (pineapple, pears, grapes. etc.)</p><p>cheeses</p><p>Mashed potatoes</p><p>hors D'oeuvres</p><p>Rack of Lamb</p><p>Gingerbread houses (different styles - fantastic Santa Glug presents!)</p><p>glasses with eggnog, wine, beer, milk</p><p>Yule log</p><p>fancy Trifle</p><p>Shorter icles (still as long, but not as tall)</p><p>Holly</p><p>Holly Garland (like the hanging lights ...just with greenery)</p><p>Green Wreath (that's it ...just a nice evergreen color)</p><p>Toys (dolls, teddy bears, stacked colored blocks  -- special SC item -- Mini Qeynos castle dollhouse)</p>

Sharann 08-30-2012 02:10 AM

<p>Craftable (or merchant sold) see-through glass tiles:</p><p>Glass squares, glass triangles, glass circles.</p><p>And yes please a Xmas tree that stays lit.</p><p>And why not a sledge as flying mount, just like Santa Claus but without the reindeers.</p>

Maela 09-03-2012 06:29 AM

<p>Less cloaks</p><p>would like those music boxes got one now need the rest. Agreed on other post craftable tables for house or guild halls. Its the only holiday we can't make out of season but has the most food.  poinsettas would be nice and clear glass tiles the polished one not good for store window designs</p>

<p>Thanks for starting this thread, Dexella!</p><p>A comfy Frostfell fireplace (with surfaces easy to hang the stockings and lights from, not curves)</p><p>Some Frostfell vegitation that could be planted like hollybushes, pointsettias, mistletoe</p><p>Cuter elf outfits, the are already some on several NPC's (I think the fae in Frostfell have them), skirts, cute hats like the Whos from Dr Seuss</p><p>The ability to buy a present for a friend, then when sent to them it arrives in a box that can be placed in their house, with a mouse over "From .... To..." . when the player recieves the gift it shows the box as opened. So I could buy my friend a new mount on Dec 12, he would put the unopened box in his house, and then right click "Open Present" whenever he would like ... then he would get the mount and an opened box that would forever display who gave the gift when mousedover.</p>

<p>Craftable Ready Made Windows.</p><p>My biggest Frostfell wish for years and years:</p><p>Make recipies usable all year long like erollisi and NOTD etc. Make the frostfell giftbox harvest nodes crafting tokens like the cogs. That item being what you need to make your frostfell recipie with. Maybe make a specific portable frostfell crafting machine that you have to quest for in order to get.</p>

Even if they were simply a chance trinket from Santa Glug I'd be grateful. Craftable rainbows would be infinitely more fantastic, of course.  <img src="/eq2/images/smilies/8a80c6485cd926be453217d59a84a888.gif" border="0" /></p>

<p>I also would like to see a more condensed set of crafting supplies.

Kitalya 09-06-2012 11:13 AM

<p>Any possibility we could have the Frostfell Shopping Bag increased in size so that it can hold ALL of the Frostfell materials?  It's quite a few slots short, and causes a number of bag space issues when trying to harvest and craft.</p>
