New World has a Winter Festival going on through December 16th to January 11th.
You can find out more information on their site here.
Here’s another website where you can find all the Gleamite locations: Click here
Here are some answers to some of the frequently asked questions that I see in chat and hopefully, that will help a few of you.
Are fallen Gleamite meteors random? Random to some degree, yes. Fallen Gleamites only show up at night and at destinated locations. It’s not going to be just anywhere on the map. Below are three areas, that I frequent for Gleamite meteors. (There are more places – Just FYI!) The reason that it is somewhat random is because the shower may only be one per night or more and it’s never an exact time.
Everfall: Salt Hollow is my least favorite place because it’s often crowded. This is because it’s very close to a Winter Village and people can run back and forth. If you do want to be near a Winter Village, then this is a good place to go.
Restless Shores: Go where the red circle is. This place is my second favorite because nobody is ever there. The night cycle lasts about 30 mins? (Not sure) and sometimes, there will be two meteor showers if you wait long enough. The downside is that isn’t much to do other than wait.
Monarch’s Bluff: This is my favorite place. See the red circle. There aren’t too many people around and I can kill or gather things while I wait for the next shower. There is plenty of motes, turkeys, wolves, wood, iron and food items in the area to really keep you busy.
Food: If you are trying to farm Gleamites then be sure to get some food at the Winter Village. They cost 2 Winter Tokens each and it doesn’t matter which one you get. Each one will double the amount of Gleamites gathered when taken. It lasts for 25 minutes.
What is the purpose of Gleamites? You can farm Gleamites, go to the Winter Village and use the hut there to turn them into Winter Tokens. These tokens are used at the store by talking to the Winter Wanderer. You can also search for lost presents too and turn them into Winter Tokens. (You only get 1 lost present at a time, but you do get event reputation. The more reputation you have, the more options you have to buy from the store.
Settlement Winter Trees: There are decorated Winter Trees in each settlement. The tree will give you a present. (The website says up to 3 times per Tree – a just once a day) In the Winter Village, there is a tree there that also will give you a present. If you are level 60, the tree will give you some extra goodies. You can visit each settlement in the different regions and get a gift as well as each Winter Village.
Winter Village Locations: Everfall, Brightwood, Monarch’s Bluff and Weaver’s Fen.

Party in my dorm tutorial -What to trade or keep?
Items you cannot give away, trade or even gift:
Pets or Pet Supply Boxes
Hunt collection items (Most)
You can drop the following for other people at their parties but you cannot trade or gift these:
Good items to trade:
What to keep:
This is considered currency in PIMD. It’s good to save all of these. I would only use these when you absoltuely have too.
A lot of people will overprice items and want you to pay in bentos or chibis. I was looking for a certain type of shards and wanted to trade with somebody.
I got so many posts on my wall where people said you can buy these shards for me for “Blank” amount of bentos. You do not need to accept these trades.
There are plenty of people who will trade without bentos or chibis.
People on the game will want to sell their hunt boxes (the ones that are tradeable) for bentos and chibis. Do not buy them. This is a rip off because in order to open these
boxes, you will need pim keys and in order to get pim keys, you need to pay real money and lots of it. If you pay for these using bentos or chibis, you are basically paying twice.
How to get extra hunt boxes?
If you are willingly to pay real money to open these boxes, you can ask in chat if somebody will gift or trade with you for some. There are a lot of people that do not want these boxes and will just gift them to you.
If you go the trade route, I would trade other items that are not bentos or chibis for them.
Good items to gift at Cat or Pizza Bikini parties:
If always expected in most clubs to gift the dropper of the cat or pizza bikini because the cat or bikini can cost real money and you need these items in order for the party to start.
Here’s a list of good gifts: (1 gift is usually acceptable unless otherwise noted)
Chibis (Some people give these – I don’t)
Furniture (Not starter furniture)
Current hunt boxes(Some people don’t want hunt boxes because they don’t have the funds to open them-Check first)
Here’s the bad list:
1 Shard (If you have to give shards – give 5 to 10)
Old hunt boxes
Wallpaper or flooring (This is a dull gift)
