Holidays arrive in Mabinogi
Mabinogi’s December content update is now live, bringing with it new holiday content and more.
The Arena Battle has been introduced, letting players battle against NPCs, with victors who defeat all the NPCs earning special weapons, rewards, and enchants for their efforts. The Ice Dragon, which can freeze opponents and offers a speed boost, has also been released.
For the holidays, players can help the Snowman by receiving their own and making it grow. When it grows up tall, players will earn a Snowman’s Gift Sack, which may contain a Reindeer Whistle inside.
Mabinogi is published by Nexon, which also publishes Dungeon Fighter Online and Dragon Nest.

‘Tis the Season to be Jolly in Mabinogi
Nexon announces Mabinogi’s holiday events and Merchant of Venice, California contest winner
Nexon America’s fantasy-themed MMORPG “Mabinogi” is ushering in the holidays with a series of special events and in-game celebrations. The December content update also brings with it a new NPC Arena Battle, and the coveted Ice Dragon.
In Mabinogi, frolicking in the snow comes with exciting rewards. Players can talk to the Snowman NPC to receive a snowman and make him grow when it snows. Players will receive a Snowman’s Gift Sack when the snowman grows to a certain height. Especially lucky players will find a Reindeer Whistle inside.
Adventure seekers will now be able to face off with NPCs in the new Arena Battle. Victorious players will receive a dungeon pass in each town to continue their mission to defeat all NPCs. Players who complete the Arena Battle will earn special weapons, rewards and enchants.
The debut of the long awaited Ice Dragon may be the sweetest gift of the season for Mabinogi pet lovers. Once summoned for battle, the Ice Dragon can freeze and attack opponents with its Ice Breath and Frost Storm attacks. When in the air, players gain a speed boost to fly even faster while atop the magnificent creature.
The content update this month follows the highly popular Merchant of Venice content update which debuted at the end of October. Nexon recently selected one lucky Mabinogi player to become “The Merchant of Venice, California.” The player Lyght, from Mabinogi’s Mari server, after having successfully mastered the new Commerce System, was randomly chosen as the winner. Lyght and his guest will enjoy the grand prize trip to California, including roundtrip airfare to Los Angeles, a three-night hotel stay in Venice, a $500 spending allowance and an exclusive studio tour of Nexon America.
