🧪 Early Information on Updated Santa's Challenge [Part of The Beta Beat v62]

NOTE: Please do not, under any circumstances, share IMAGES OR VIDEOS from Beta in this or any public Forum thread. Violations can cause players to lose their Beta accounts, or threads to be closed down.

This thread is to provide early insights and discussion on the initial release of the updated Santa’s Challenge.

Don’t get too attached

Details from Beta, especially brand-new Beta content, don’t tend to be very reliable for actual release.

It’s incredibly common that features are changed during Beta testing, or sometimes even after testing but before release. That is, after all, the purpose of Beta testing.

So I wouldn’t get too attached to any of this — it’s not unheard of for entire portions of features to be removed or reworked, or for radical changes to functionality to be made.

:moneybag: Boss and Reward changes

The bosses and normal rewards are changed (mostly just the Avatars).
Thanks to @birksg who has created a guide about them:

:moneybag: Santa’s Booster

This will be an offer, which is available through the Santa’s Challenge event, and it contains of two components:

  • Battle Bonus
  • Stage Gift

The offer also contains 300 gems and 3 Epic Hero tokens.
The price is unknown.

:crossed_swords: Battle bonus

All of your heroes receive stat boost based on their rarity:

:gift: Stage Gift

If you buy the Santa’s Booster, then a :gift: icon will be shown after each stage, which you can open after you finished that level.
If you buy the offer after you have completed some stages, then you are still able to open the gifts for the already completed stages.

Each stage gives either Food or Iron Bundles (50k / 100k / 250k), and some additional items.
Special thanks to @birksg who have created a guide about these too:

Total amount of summons you get from the Booster alone:

  • 100 Super Elemental Coins
  • 100 Covenant Coins
  • 100 Dune Coins
  • 2 Epic Hero Tokens
  • 24 Loot Tickets
  • 2950k Food
  • 950k Iron
  • 1x Orb of Magic
  • 1x Damascus Blade
  • Bunch of (Master) Trainer Heroes
  • Bunch of basic battle items

All of these are above the regular loot what you can get from the Santa’s challenge.

sad to see the nerf on the booster since last years


That is what i was thinking too. I’d buy the booster… In its original form.


Can’t even throw the players a bone even when that bone is locked behind yet another paywall. No actual improvements to the event either, just another low effort cash grab with a flood of 5* for whales to chase.

Lol, get stuffed - changing the booster like that, shove a carrot up your a**.


Cool. Extra money saved on the nerfed booster.


Wow this is just wrong!! Did they think people wouldn’t notice??..

Honestly, what’s the point in the boosters anymore? I used to get a couple when it equated to 10 or more pulls per the £10 they used to cost, only special people buy these now. Awful.

So c Pengi isn’t featured

People have mentioned them nerfing the booster. I think it’s time they just make portions of it as free rewards. We shouldn’t need to pay for extra junk. And I do mean junk because a lot of this game has been reduced to junk.

Does pengi have a costume?

It was $11.99 last year and was ~4x the value.

Items Value
100x Covenant Coins $1.70
100x Super Elemental Coins $1.70
100x Dunes Coins $1.50
2x EHT $2.60
24x Loot Tickets $1.20
2.95M Food $2.95
0.95M Iron $0.95
1x 3AM $1.00
1x 4AM $5.00
Total $18.60

Factoring the reduction in loot, it should be $4.99 to match the same value.

However, given how other boosters are 2x the value, it seems like the price will be $9.99. Add inflation (aka $1B debt) to that, and you get $11.99.


I get to save money yet again. :joy::rofl:


Wait, so they STILL haven’t made any updates to the event?!!!


Please give Buddy old fame back, give him costume that hit all and give minions to all, preferably rogue or fighter class, thanks!

No, he does not have a costume.

so sad to here nerf of boister, at least christmas one was good and i was thinking it will stay good in Christmas spirit, :frowning:

Thank you SG for helping me save money. I bought last yr booster and will not be buying this nerfed version. I am glad to you nerfed the booster, 1 less thing to tempt me to buy. :rofl::rofl:


When will be The Santa s challenge, this year?
