Chaos Chest Changes
- Chaos Chests and Golden Chaos Chests now drop sometimes from dungeon chests. There are advantages to farming fast for these, but even more casual players will be able to earn them at a reasonable rate!

- You can use Chaos Cores along with other resources to craft classes, new costumes, and Chaos Chest specific collectibles.
- The Chaos Chest rare table has been expanded to always include all previous Chaos Chest only collectibles at a low rate.
- Any chest specific collectibles gained from opening chests are now are not tradable, and loot collect into Chaos Cores. Previously acquired collectibles remain tradable, but cannot be loot collected.
- Added the new Chaos Core Crafter to the Novice Crafting Bench.
- Crafting at this bench unlocks directly into your collection and prevent you from crafting anything you already have collected.

- The Fountain Island collect map from Zez
- Challenges now award a new lesser dragon cache that isn't tradable but always contains at least one Dragon Coin at common and at rare gives 25. It also has an extra fast filling Karma bar. This should increase the amount of dragon coins it is possible to earn for playing challenges.
- Complete the Snowfestivus quest chain to earn your very own Snowfest Log, a new rig where you run backwards on a log to go forward! Also has great prizes like Chaos Chests and Diamond Dragonite!

- Bosses in Holiday Tree lairs drop Subzero Snowflakes, which can be crafted into Enchanted Snowballs, which can be used to bop a friend on the noggin, or maybe, someday, debuff the fire shield on a holiday-stealing mechanical monster? Nah, we don't even have those.

- The Snowfest Pack contains a the following player-made mounts:
- Starter classes now permanently cost 250 Credits.
