Is there a warning of some kind before Santa delivers presents, do you know? I’d like one or two of the gifts, but not sure I want to hang around in towns waiting all day and hoping I get them… ^.^

I could find one in Altinova when I arrived, it seems it stays there for a while. Can’t say for how long though.

Ah, thanks.

Wow this is probably the worst event I’ve ever seen in a game. Only the first person gets anything, and not many gifts are dropped at all.

Drops I have seen can be as little as 40 seconds apart. If you really want one don’t chase the sled. Find a high point watch him and get ahead of him. This is easier in Altinova as you can cover half the city from high ground, always see him and you can get there quicker than the chasers. I have had alot of fun with Santa (just a shame I have not got the item I wanted yet)

After spending afew hours I can confirm that he drops in the same spot repeatedly however there are many spots. Also when he drops from high altitude the parcel can dissapear if in the air for longer than around 10 seconds (I have yet to time it). The route is not random and Santa appears (quite suddenly) right in the middle of Altinova before beginning his route which repeats. The drop points are not the same every repetition of the route however and that appears to be the RNG. After watching for awhile though it doesnt feel like RNG I think I can anticipate the drops now

Nvm, there was loot just stuff that went in the pearl tab.

also do the items with [Event] in the name disappear after the event?
