People are taking there dominium stones and enclosing trees so players cant use them... Is this legit play? Seems really griefy as there isnt anything we can do to get to the trees now... This shuts out everyone on the server from those trees....
Xmas event griefing?
Totally agree with you, this event is a little weird !!
First thing this announcement is WRONG "And if you will decorate a large Christmas tree, In addition you will receive the title of "Spirit of Christmas" and a gift (appears every 30 minutes near a large Christmas tree, if it is decorated)."
If you decorate a christmas tree you only get "Christmas spirit" and for the gift you have to wait 30 minutes.
The problem is that I decorated 3 christmas trees (60 copper lingot for the Red and white ball) and after 29 minutes when I came back there were at least 2 or 3 other players waiting for the gift to appear.
Of course I couldn't succeed to get a gift in 10 tries.
So for me it was a total waste of ressources and times !!
Really It would have been better if the christmas tree that appear in the building menu could give gifts every 30 minutes for a small number of cycles before it desappears. And of course this tree could be build inside our walls
I managed to get a gift, the "Christmas Snowflake", which doesn't seem to do anything, and is impossible to get rid of, so it seems to be taki ng up a cargo slot for no good reason
I like the iea of the event, though
enough to play on servers where there are less people and no one is fighting for a Christmas tree. for example NOWUS
I was able to get a few trees just some candy canes and some xmas biscuits. Really dont think they are worth the 20 ingots but hopefully the snowflakes will pay off. If i can get my carpentry up high enough to make a stocking to put them in (requires loom lvl 38 carpentry).
As for the blocked trees one of the devs I think took care of it or they moved there stones nothing around the trees now. Thanks!! Maybe make it so you cannot build around the trees?

Well actually nobody could place a dominium on a tree. And if somebody has done it I have some questions to that person :) So if you'll see another unreachable tree - don't forget to send a mail to email@example.com with coordinates of this tree.

We fix this issue in tomorrow patch.
And another thing - when you decorate a Christmas tree it will spawn gift every 30 minutes 3-7 times after it became decorated.
I'm playing on novus server (PVE) and the christmas trees were on safe area so we couldn't fight with other players.
So it sucks, because when you used 20 lingots to decorate a christmas trees you get nothing except "christmas spirit" and you have to wait for 30 minutes to see a gift and hopes that nobody will be present to steal the gift.
At least if at the first when you decorated the christmas trees you get the gift you should consider after all that it's normal and the faster get the price.
I got griefed once on the tree I decorated but then I received an epic helmet! Thank you Santa!
I put decoration on 2 trees (christmas), got lucky because after 30 minutes I could gather the gifts (x2) on each trees. PVE, NOVUS server on safe area.
Then I wait for 30 minutes (again) and luckily nobody present to steal the gifts, ..... but instead of the gifts, the decoration vanished .....
I was thinking that at least the decoration will stay for 3 to 7 cycles (ie 1h30 to 3h30).
Am I doomed or unlucky ? Or is it a normal behavior ?
Because now the count is 140 copper lingots (Trees decoration x7) for only 8 gifts.
2/5 of the times I decorated tree it only spawned presents once then the decorations vanished... 2/5 it spawned presents only 2x and then decorations vanished 1st time it spawned presents 4x.
