So you may have noticed in the “Holiday 2013” character collection a spot for the Grumple. However you’ll noticed that he’s nowhere to be found. You can’t buy him in the shop, and he isn’t one of the personal or community prizes. So what’s the deal?
There was also word of Gil reappearing for the holidays, but there has been no sign of him. When can we expect another day-old donut deal, or did the Grumple steal it away? The information that follows could technically be considered spoilers, so only read on if you don’t mind a few surprises being revealed early.
The Grumple unlocks for purchase on Christmas Eve (Dec. 24th) and will cost 120 donuts.
There will also be a short quest that takes place between Dec. 22 and Dec. 24, and judging from the dialogue it may be giving players a subtle hint about the upcoming Gil deal. Who needs subtle hints when you have a direct line to the information? (Thanks once again to spAnser.)
That Gil deal is in regards to donut purchases. You won’t save any money this time, but you will get 25% more donuts for the same price. It is only scheduled to be active on Christmas Day (Dec. 25th) though, so if you want to stock up on donuts, that would be the time to do it.
Play on Christmas Day (Dec. 25th) and you’ll get double payout on presents and gift bags. In addition, you’ll also get a free reindeer placed in your inventory. All-in-all, it seems like we’ll be getting a few holiday treats during the days leading up to Christmas. Do you plan on taking advantage of Gil’s donut deal?
