Act I simply requires you to defeat enemies in Dragonspine area. Defeated enemies can sometimes drop Rime-Worn Fragments/Crystals. Common/basic enemies like slimes or hilichurls will drop fragments, while enemies like Cicin Mage, or Mitachurls drops Crystals.
Begins on 25th of December, and there will be a short quest involving the sword. After completing the quest, Testing Grounds will be marked on the map, where you can do some timed challenges.
In the challenge, the environment will change into a snowstorm, increasing the rate of sheer cold. Enemies will start to appear, and they have random buffs. Simply defeat them within the time limit with at least 1 ruin brazier still standing to complete the challenge. The amount of Glimmering Essence depends on your world level. At World Level 7, each completion gives 150 essences.
Begins on December 28, you are tasked with guiding a warming seelie to its destination, while also defending against enemy's attacks. In the challenge, the enemies are also given random buffs, but the warming seelie also occasionally drops scarlet quartzes that you can use to deal extra damage.
Available on December 31, Act IV is a boss fight against the Resurgent Cryo Regisvine.
In the fight, you will have to use scarlet quartzes that you obtain from defeating nearby enemies, then use it to destroy the blue crystals surrounding the boss. After that, similar to the regular Cryo Regisvine, you need to destroy the core at the root to disable it. Use Pyro attacks to help destroy it faster.
The Resurgent Cryo Regisvine can unleash a powerful move, and you will have to defend yourself by destroying the Seeds of Winter to create a barrier.
Aside from the rewards that we get from completing the missions, there is also an event exchange shop. Each act gives a different item to exchange at the shop, which is why the shop has 3 different sections. Each shop comes with some Mora, weapon, and character exp materials, as well as the item needed to refine the Festering Desire.
Miraculous Essence shop also sells Crown of Insight, which are used to max level a talent, and they are a rare item only obtainable through events. It's recommended to prioritize getting it first, if you are limited on time.
