From Blizzard Entertainment:

Midwinter Blight is here. With it comes a period of perpetual darkness and bitter cold that consumes Fractured Peaks. From December 12, 10 a.m. to January 2, 10 a.m. PST, team up with a hopeful bard who brings warning of an awakened “Red-Cloaked Horror” and its Blightfiend underlings looking to prey on the most disheartened souls. In this event, players can take on new event quests, upgrade the event hub, challenge a new boss, and earn rewards including new cosmetic items.


• Aid Gileon, the bard, as he seeks to reignite the holiday spirit in the townsfolk of Kyovashad after hearing rumors about spiteful dangers lurking in the snow and bringing down citizens’ morale.

• Visit the Midwinter Square, located in Kyovashad, to build up festive spirit and upgrade the square to its full holiday potential through slaying the pale blue Blightfiends lurking in Fractured Peaks for their Blighted Fragments.

• Interrupt the Blightfiends’ Blighted Revelry by destroying the jumble of human viscera known as Frigid Husks and recovering Lost Heirlooms which can also be used to upgrade the square.

• Punish enough Blightfiends for defiling the Fractured Peaks residents and you may find yourself face to face with their sadistic overlord, the Red-Cloaked Horror.

• Visit the Collections Table in Midwinter Square once you have enough Blighted Fragments, Lost Heirlooms, and other Midwinter Blight resources to trade them for Midwinter Proofs. These can be traded for a variety of rewards including: A Mount Trophy, Class-specific Back Trophies, Weapon Cosmetics, the Shard of Dawn Offensive Legendary Aspect, Gileon’s Brew, and more.
