So  you best get busy telling us how you’re getting on with collecting materials and completing the Questline.

    I concur – I had the season pass but wasn’t near achieving enough ‘ornament’ drops & had to use clams. Especially ridiculous that Santa Death was needed before the last stage of the main questline & you needed that character for another chance drop… really?!? Once we had the character why would we need to continue trying for ornament drops. * sigh *

  2. At the time of typing there are 8mins left of the event.
    I only need Santa Hats, but I need 20 of them.
    Cleared Death to Level 3 as a final push but i only have 6/7 decorations required to clear Level 4.
    Not wasting the clams to speed Jeffry up or buying Death outright.

    Thanks JamCity for another unsuccessful end to the usual ‘rinse and repeat’ major event.
    Lets see if in 2022 they fix their ridiculous oversight/lack of useful characters item drops in the final week on these events.

  7. I ended up buying Santa Death out. There was zero chance of getting him using Reindeer Jeffery alone. I think I only got a total of around 13 ornaments over 6 full days of play. Used what I had to get 11 Santa hats and bought the other 16 I needed for the unlock for 128 clams total. Got 35 of those back for completing the Facespace set, and I imagine I’ll get another 5 back for competing the Questline. Still a lot cheaper than buying the Season Pass, or the decoration that drops ornaments.

    Very disappointing that TinyCo went this way of making it impossible for freemium players for a Christmas themed event.

  8. It is mathematically impossible to get enough ornaments to beat Santa Death’s streak and get the 27 hats required without spending clams. I gave up on the event when I did the math. This happens with every “beat the streak” character now. Just give us ONE more character and make it a common drop, even if it takes all week.

  9. It is mathematically impossible to get enough ornaments to beat the streak to get all of the Santa hats required to get Santa death. I gave up as soon as I realized that. This happens every time with these “beat the streak” characters now.

  10. I bought the pass and have Tricia and Jeffrey and still only have 19 Santa Hats as of this morning. Even with both of them I’ll have to spend clams to get Santa Death due to the horrible drop rates. Instead of having the Knockoff Fireworks prize drop snowballs they should have had it drop Holy Christmas Ornaments. Even a drop of one per day would have been a help. Who needs snowballs at the end of the game? I have over 4,000 accumulated and nothing to spend them on. What the deuce?!

  13. What’s worse, the battles are 1-3-5 so you have to save up for a long time. Nine ornaments for 6 hats. I never got high enough to see what was at the 5x level.

  14. I stopped at stage 4 of the quest until I get enough ornaments to completely defeat Santa Death. I am only 2 away from getting the 25 needed.

    I have Tricia and Jeffrey for the drops. I would have nowhere near enough if I only had Jeffrey by himself. I feel bad for anyone who just plays this event freemium…..seems impossible!

  15. Pedro – even with the extra character it is all but impossible (unless you buy the parts). The drop rates (as expected) stink. I’ve said it before – 8 hour or longer tasks should be guaranteed drops. I’m trying to get as close as I can before using shells to finish it off.

  16. Just a helpful hint to all those struggling to get ornaments to be able to defeat santa death. I contacted support about my issue in obtaining them and the resulting impossibility of completing week 3. The credited me with 10 ornaments (HUGE HELP! Brought me to 26). Took about 12 hours for a response so if you’re still struggling I suggest contacting them and letting them know that for freemium players its impossible and hopefully they will help you similarly.

  17. Just a case of whether i get enough decorations in time to take a all levels of santa death in one go, and whether or not one run of that gives enough stuff for the unlock. Also hope he isnt on cooldown at the end of the event, because it will be last minute if at all.

    First phase was so easy which was great. Finished with over a day to spare freemium. Phase 2 took ages.

  21. I’m on part 6 and trying to get stuff for Death Santa. Needs more characters helping out.

  22. If its of any consolation…. even if you bought the pass, and ended up with Tricia, you still don’t have a hope in hell of unlocking Santa death.

    The problem is the 6 hour task and a terrible drop rate.

    With 2 characters ive still only got one of two a day as often both finish with zero drops and mostly only one of them drops not both.

    To reiterate the main nuts thing about this is that the character you are trying to unlock is also one to the ones who drops the decorations. Once you unlocked him you’ve no more need for the decorations.

    Anyway, I guess there will be very very few people unlocking Santa death.

  23. Agreed. A real B.S. event re Santa Death. Impossible.

  24. Same issue as always with the fighting streak tasks. It takes 25 ornaments to defeat Santa Death. Ornaments are dropped by one character every 6 hours, which means three drops: morning, noon, and night, unless you set an alarm for the middle of the night for a fourth drop. So three drops per day, seven-day week, for a total of 21 ornaments, and that’s assuming a 100 percent drop rate. Which it isn’t. So this one is mathematically impossible without clams.

  25. I bought the pass, so I have two characters dropping ornaments. But it still isn’t enough. Every 6 hours I only get one drop from both characters. I’ll keep grinding, but odds are slim.

  28. I’m at part 6 of the main quest and don’t think it will be possible to move forward.
    It’s virtually impossible to unlock Santa Death without spending clams when the only source of Xmas decorations is Jeffrey doing a 6h task.
    Need 25 of them to get 27 Santa Hats which translates to 6.25 days assuming 100% drops.
    I guess this is how they are forcing us to buy the pass… so you get another toon that drops the required items.
    Not interested.

    • I brought the pass early on. Even with Tricia, the drops have been horrible.

    • No. It was never be possible to do. You don’t get 4 drops per day, it’s 7 every 2 days with 3 possible on the odd day, and that’s if they were an always drop. That’s a possible 24 in 7; I’ve got 8 in 4 days. At this time of writing I’ve a possibility of getting 9. In reality I’ll be lucky to get 2.

    • I bought the pass and I’m still nowhere near getting enough Ornaments. Drops were terrible this time around.
