Quest Pick Up

Do the Weekly Quests on as many alts as possible!
You can then do easy dailies on alts and trade the Snowflakes between your alts and main characters.
Quests are picked up in Sanctum, Meridian and Tempest Bay.. (You can’t pick up the weeklies in TB so most player use the home cities)

Questgivers in Sanctum
/setwaypoint 7374 3073
Questgivers in Meridian
/setwaypoint 6197 5185
Questgivers in Tempest Bay
/setwaypoint 12765 11574

In this area you will find questgivers that hand out the weekly and some dailies.
You will also find a variety of Vendors, most of them sell the same items as you will find in the Fae Yule section of the Rift Store.
You can see all the items to buy on the Shopping Page and all the Costume Items on the Wardrobe page.

Phases

The quests that reward event currency are split into 3 phases. The weekly and dailies for each phase will be different.

Faelight Sparkle Extravaganza! - 2019

Once per event – You can pick up this quest on the first day and then have 4 weeks to complete it.

Awards a RANDOM item of T2 quality loot — Your character needs to be level 70 to pick up this quest. Also awards a Gumdrop Levitation mount the first year you complete it.
This quest is available ONCE per character throughout the whole of Fae Yule, it will not reset weekly or monthly!

This quest is picked up from…
DEFIANTS: ‘Merga’ in Meridian /setwaypoint 6197 5193 — (He can wander off a bit tho!)
GUARDIANS: ‘Merga’ in Sanctum /setwaypoint 7377 3079
BOTH: ‘Merga’ in Tempest Bay /setwaypoint 12779 11571

Complete dungeons, win warfronts, complete zone events while mentored to the correct level.
Unstable artifact events do give sparkles! They will give you 4 sparkles each.
Farming unstable events can often be the quickest way to complete the quest, simply tag as many unstable events as you can, making sure you are always mentored to the correct level for the lowest event you have tagged (or just stay at level 20 while you farm). You can easily tag high level events at level 20 if you use an unstable artifact tracking vial (the patron one will do) or use nets to catch squirrels. Use an event tracker like YARET, here you can click on an event once you have tagged it so you can keep an eye on which events you still need to tag.

This is probably the most important quest of Fae Yule. You will receive a T2 piece of gear which will likely boost your character massively.. MERRY CHRISTMAS!

You will also receive ..

The Gumdrop Levitation Mount
Gumdrop Levitation will only show as a rewards the first year you complete the quest, in subsequent years you will only receive the T2 loot box.

Unstable events

Unstable zone events do work for earning Sparkles. You can tag a bunch of zone events, mentoring down each time and then stay low level as they all complete.
You do not need to stay in the zone until the event has finished, you can tag the event by picking up a single unstable (blue) artifact or catching a squirrel.
Don’t forget you can track zone events on YARET.

Try to group up with a higher level friend and turn on your sidekicking, or just run through the cave together.

The caves are located in Iron Pine Peak, the location is clearly marked on your map.
Inside the caves and tunnels are very large piles of presents, you need to pick up 5 of these. Dont forget you can switch shard if your shard is particularly busy.

Fae Yule Daily Quests - Reward Snowflakes

 A large selection of daily quests to complete!

Quest Hubs

There are 3 main quest hubs to pick up dailies: Sanctum, Meridian and Tempest Bay. Its best to use Sanctum or Meridian to pick up your quests as you likely have to go to Sanctum or Meridian to complete them!

Planar Quests

In both Sanctum and Meridian there will be a planar quest to pick up where you either upgrade a wardstone, close 2 rifts of a certain element or kill 15 planar/rift creatures.. Make sure you are mentored correctly for this. You will be awarded 25 unique snowflakes and a jingling bell on completion.
Holiday Thievery – Collect Stolen Gifts from Air rifts that grant XP – Make sure you are mentored and close some air rifts! You can open you own air rift using your Ascended Power ability, or ask a high level char (even your own alt!) to open one for you. You need a single stolen gift to complete the quest, for me this dropped from the first rift with both characters that I tested, but it may not be a guaranteed drop.
Stormproofing the Wardstones – Use the Nexus Infusion ability to upgrade a wardstone – Wardstones can be found near most quest hubs, they are the spots that need defending during zone events – Select a wardstone and the Nexus Infusion ability will show up near the portrait, you can use the ability to credit the quest even if the wardstone is already at max level – You can find one just outside Meridian at /setwaypoint 6220 5297 and just outside Sanctum at /setwaypoint 7202 3039
Cheer Up! – Collect Stolen Holiday Cheer from rift creatures that grant XP – Kill any planar creatures that grant XP (a single rift will usually be enough) and loot the corpses for the holiday cheer. The holiday cheer will go straight into your quest log bag. When you have looted 15 the quest will auto complete.
Baffling Crucia’s Winds – Close Air rifts that grant XP – Make sure you are mentored and close some air rifts! You can open you own air rift using your Ascended Power ability, or ask a high level char (even your own alt!) to open one for you. Close 2 rifts to complete the quest.
The Safest Way – Kill 15 rift creatures that grant XP – Rift creatures in any zone will do, make sure you mentor down to grant XP – High level characters (65+) may want to pop into the Celestial IA to see if is rift closing time!

Goboro / Draumheim / Tarken

There are also dailies to pick up in
Goboro Reef – /setwaypoint 4019 6608 –Ghar Station Mem
Draumheim – /setwaypoint 5495 6367 –Ghar Station Rosh

Random Dailies

There are also 2 dailies that change randomly each day.. These are picked up in Meridian, Sanctum or Tempest Bay.. If you are unable to pick up the dailies during the first week it could be because you still have quests from the previous year in your quest log, check in your quest log under ‘World Event: Fae Yule’ and abandon any old quests.
There are guides for these dailies below.
