      • "I'm dreaming of a white Crimbo!" <name> croons, while spraying your opponent with fake snow that somehow does Y points of real damage.

Arena Messages

  • When entered in Hide and Seek:
    <name> is way too excited about Crimbo to do any hiding.


  • Once per day, the player may select their Crimbo Shrub's current decorations by using a box of old Crimbo decorations. The Shrub can use one decoration from each of the four following categories: toppers (tuned stat gain), lights (elemental damage), garlands (HP, PvP fights or blocking) and gifts (yellow ray, meat or gift exchange).
    • A list of current decorations and a link to the decoration interface appears in the Terrarium while the Shrub is the selected familiar and if the player has not modified decorations that day. Current decorations are also listed in the familiar's description popup.
    • Decorations are reset on ascension, with the topper automatically tuned to give main stat gains, and random choices for the other decoration options. This does not count as a daily decoration selection.
  • Adds (weight/5)+2 to stat gains after combat. 75% of the bonus stats will go to the stat specified by decorations, with the remaining 25% evenly split into the other two stats, or a 6:1:1 ratio.
  • Piles of Tiny Presents will send and receive presents after combat, on two different timers. When sending presents, it duplicates a tradable drop received during that fight and places it into a drop pool, while when receiving presents it selects an item from that pool. (Jick's Default pool if pool is empty or too low.)
    • Sending presents appears to occur every 6-11 combats.
      • If there is an extended period of combats where the Shrub does not encounter any eligible items, it will become fully "prepared" and the next eligible item is immediately duplicated.
    • Receiving presents appears to occur every 10-20 combats, regardless of whether any presents have been sent out.
  • The skills Open a Big Red Present and Open a Big Yellow Present have a cooldown until the associated "Everything Looks..." effect expires. Everything Looks Yellow is given by other yellow ray sources, while Everything Looks Red is also caused by a red ray from a He-Boulder. These effects cannot be removed by any cleanse-type effect, but are removed at rollover.
  • Elemental attacks always occur on the first round of combat, then have a chance to occur in subsequent rounds. The prismatic attack only occurs on the first round.
  • HP restored is (weight+5)/2 to weight+5 and occurs after every combat.
  • Can perform multiple actions on the same turn. (Lights Effect and Popcorn Strand)
