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.
How to promote your shop in chat? This one took me a little while to figure out so I will pass this information to you. The reason you need people to visit your shop is so that your shop will get higher in the rankings.
Go to your career menu in Dragon Raja.
Click on “Partner” in the right side menu.
Under your “My Shop.” There is a button called “Sharing”
Click the “Sharing” button. It will give you an option to share your shop in world chat. (See picture below)
You will see “Partner Shop1” written in the chat bar.
That is all! 🙂
Kitty Powers’ Matchmaker
Genre: Dating / Stimulation
Summary: You work at a dating agency and you goal is to find love connections for your clients.
Here are the bad ones first: I think the graphics could be better. It’s not the worst that I have seen but definitely not great. Some parts of the game got a bit tedious especially if you ended up picking the same restaurant multiple times. The good part is that I thought the game was hilarious. I got several good chuckles from the situations that the characters were involved in and the game developers were really creative when it came to character names and hobbies. The mini games were challenging enough and in some cases, you could cheat if you wanted too. I don’t mind being a cheater so that worked for me. Below, there is a small guide for some tips & hints on how to play and do well.
I would recommend this especially if you are just looking for a relaxing casual game.
Kitty Powers’ Matchmaker Tips:
- Pay attention to how the character’s appearance and their attire. This is a clue on what type of personality they are. You have, for example, geeky, sporty, hippie, edgy and etc.
- Astrological signs are not that important. It helps but it’s not important to make a relationship work.
- You need two or more personality traits to match up in order for the characters to want to start a relationship. (This is the 3rd tab on the profile)
- 3 star rated characters do not like going to 1 start restaurants. VIP characters are even more picky. The date will give you a strike for this.
- Your date will give you a strike if you take them to the same restaurant twice.
- You can only talk about most topics one time with the exception of interests. You can talk about that up to 3 times with the same date. Do not pick the same interests each time though.
- You get bonus points if both characters have matching professions or matching hobbies / likes.
- If the character gets their heart broke three times, they will leave the agency.
- If their date reaches 3 strikes during dinner, the date will walk out of the restaurant.
- Every time, you unlock a restaurant; you are also unlocking new mini games.
- If you know your date is an extrovert, you don’t have to worry about passing the farting mini game. An extrovert will not care if you fart.
- A date, who is an extrovert, will not care if you talk to your ex in the restaurant. You will not have to lie. If you are on a date with an introvert, you will have to lie or you will get a strike from your date.
- In order for a couple to have children, they will have to be an A / A + pair.
Shedder Simulator Games
Genre: Tearing shit up
Summary: Putting items in the shedder and watch it destroy things and make weird noises.
I have not played this because I feel like in 2 minutes; I will be bored to death. As I said in the summary, you just put various objects into a shedding machine. Judging by the picture, the developer offers a lot of things that you can just toss into the shredder even a bowling ball! (WOW) I seriously doubt they offer anything cool like a cucumber or human body parts. It looks like the graphics are sub-par at best but I’m sure the sound effects would be over the top amazing. I also read some of the best reviews for a game on here. Players were getting super detailed about how the items should drop down the shedder which I found fascinating that somebody would take the time out of their busy day to write that review.
Probably not but read the reviews.
Summary: You have an avatar in which you use to socialize with other people.
I thought this was a pretty decent game especially if you are into socializing with other human beings. I did not find the avatars all that great looking and noticed if you wanted to change your look, it would cost some money. At that point, I was just like “Fuck it,” I’ll be ugly. You do start out with an apartment which was unfurnished. I did somehow get a free unicorn and a dog but I am unsure how I did that. There seemed to be a ton of places to venture off too (Bars, parks, etc) and several events that were also going on. My first journey was at a bar because I wanted to know if my avatar could get drunk. I could not figure out how to order anything and then realized that probably cost cash too. So then, I went to a dog park. I left my dog at home though. Time was well spent at the park because I met my first friend, Martin. (He was wearing a ball gag but seemed very nice) He encouraged me to find a job after I explained to him that I needed a lot of cash to get drunk. I asked him what kind of jobs were available to a person of my quality. I told him my interests were stripping and coupon clipping. He said he would help me find my dream job. That was exciting news, I had a new friend and would soon be employed and making lots of cash. After our serious employment chat, I asked Martin to be my mail order bride. I had to log after that so hopefully, he says yes soon.
I would recommend this game because it is casual and relaxing. There was no goal to the game other than finding friends. My only real issue was camera movement and walking. This is a personal issue because I’m really bad at reading directions.
Dream Daddy – A Dad Dating Simulator
Genre: Roleplaying and complete & utter fantasy
Summary: A Dad Dating Simulator where you play a dad with daughter, who recently just moved into town. Of course, the first thing a dad wants to do is romance other hot dads!
I have not played this game and probably never will because this screams hot mess to me. I’m also not interested in unrealistic role-play no matter how cool the outfits are. Oddly, this game has a high rating too. It looks like you can build your dad with different looks and then meet random men at various locations. I’m assuming to hook up. The examples of dads (Picture below) does not appeal to me. We have what looks like a vampire, a frat boy and a dirty bike mechanic with an alcohol problem. Then beside him, it is says “Build that dad! With a picture of a guy that looks like he has moobs and shops at hot topic. It looks like the demographic for this game would be young gay / bi-sexual male gamers that love to date men with children. Which is not a wide marketing field there.
Since, I have never played it; I can only speculate how the game play would be. Here goes: Day one: Build your very own dad and dress him in a sexy outfit. (Polo shirt and hot pants) Day two: Meet another hot dad at the local biker bar where drinks are ½ price until 7 pm. After you had a few minutes of small talk and are well past drunk, you make out with other hot dad in the back alley. Day three: Hungover and bruised, you explained to your daughter how you use her as a prop to lure in other hot dads and that her mother is missing. (Boating accident, you believe) Day four: Two hot dads fight for your affection! One is an out of shape millionaire and the other is a poor Latino pool boy, who will you choose! I could go on forever with this but I won’t.
I cannot recommend this since I won’t even play it myself. Maybe if they could come out with another addition (part two), moms looking for mediocre men that aren’t complete fucks, I would play that.
IPAD Time Waster Games: Best Friends
Genre: Puzzles (See Pictures)
I like this game. It is well designed, thought provoking and engaging. It does spam the fuck out of you to buy extra content but with all the rewards and bonuses, you don’t actually need to spend a dime on the game. The main dislike to this game is in order to unlock some of the levels, you need to have other Facebook friends that play the game as well. I have not had that issue yet where I could not unlock a level but I could see that if you did not have Facebook, you would not get very far. It’s pretty annoying anyway that you need Facebook friends in order to play a game. I’m assuming that you would have to pay with your rewards or money to unlock those levels if you had no friends but I have not verified that. Some levels are easy and some levels are challenging with a mix of side quests, there is a good balance. You do have to strategize which I like a lot.
Only if you like puzzle games and have friends that play as well. I have yet to spend any money on it and have made it to level 157.
