So, what is in 1.0.12.4?  I didn't see any patch notes for it.

It was just the 13th Anniversary badge, "Timeless."  No other new shinies.  Yet™.

Rule of thumb is that if the 4th number in the version changes (the patch level), it's a minor fix or tweak and nothing to get excited about.

She shrugged at me when I mentioned it.  I guess she's more hardwood floor than woman now.

As Salvage behaved in events for the past, probably not.

If you can run more than one instance, the easiest trick is to use one toon to purchase Holiday Cheers and then gift them to the toon that needs Candy Canes.  They usually spit out more canes than the 5 it costs to purchase Holiday Cheer, so barring receiving temp powers and junk (which still gives at least one candy cane, I believe) you can conceivably make a profit.

If you can't run more than one instance, I'm sure you could find a willing soul to trade Holiday Cheers with.  I'd be happy to help you out, for instance.  :)

The long-term average candy cane acquisition rate for opening Mystery Gifts (what you get when somebody uses Holiday Cheer on you) is 3 candy canes per box*. That was taken into account when determining the vendor prices.

If you're lucky, you might be able to get ahead in the short term. If you try to turn it into an infinite candy cane machine, you'll find that the house always wins.

Code: [Select]
GiftShop wgBoxGifts[] = {
    { 10, GIFT_JINGLEJET },
    { 20, GIFT_SNOWBALL },
    { 10, GIFT_JUNK },
    { 10, GIFT_BOXMESSAGE },
    { 20, GIFT_CANDYCANEHIGH },
    { 1, GIFT_LKT },
    { 10, GIFT_FRISBEE },
    { 5, GIFT_TOYBAT },
    { 0, GIFT_NONE }
};

* It's 3 per box if you already have all of the various winter event powers. If you don't have them yet, the average candy cane drop rate will be a little lower while those powers are still in the pool. Once you have them, they are ignored, so the drop table looks like this:

Code: [Select]
    { 10, GIFT_JUNK },          // Spawns physics object
    { 10, GIFT_BOXMESSAGE },    // Dialog box, gives 1 candy cane as a consolation prize   
    { 20, GIFT_CANDYCANEHIGH }, // 4-7 candy canes

I stand corrected.  However I only had personal experience to base my hypothesis on, and not actual maths.  Darn maths!  They get me every time!

I was just having a lucky night though, and by no means trying to cheat the system.  Christmas will roll around in no time as it is.   I mean, it's already May?  Noooo!  I'm not ready!  :P

Having missed the winter event, is there any other way to get candy canes?

Any zones that still spawn presents?

You can get them from other players who have charges of Holiday Cheer left.  They hand you a gift box, you open it for a chance at Candy Canes.

Otherwise, next December the event returns.

How many badges total are available now?

474 badges available now, including Toy Collector which technically won't be available until the winter event reopens.

If you participated in the winter event this past holiday season you probably already have it (and I know you did because we traded lots of presents  ;D ) but newcomers won't be able to get it until December.

Any news on History badges? Read that there was some hope in getting these implemented as well, just with different background stories.
