Uncle Bill, the mastermind behind Westland's winter festivities, is in trouble! His Gift Factory, usually bustling with elves preparing presents, is under siege by Rampus' thugs. Step in to save these elves and secure keys to the treasure chests of gifts. You have the chance to rescue up to 5 elves daily, depending on your access to different locations.

Each elf holds a key of varying rarity:

  • Uncommon keys — Unlock green chests.
  • Rare keys — Unlock blue chests.

All chests contain tree decorations and other items. The rarer keys unlock better rewards. You can swap key rarities with Dum if needed. Open all chests at the Gift Factory to open the Master chest, which holds incredible prizes!

Rampus’ Revenge

Did you really think handling Rampus' thugs was all? You need to confront Corny, a pyromaniac, yourself. He's no ordinary foe; his pockets brim with Firecrackers, and he knows how to use them, though not for good!

While you're busy with Festival activities, Rick will track down Rampus' Lair. Once he finds it, it's time to make Corny pay for nearly ruining the celebration. Take down this villain and restore joy to Westland!
