This series of tasks is available around Christmas, starting in 2006.

Find a Frostfell Goblin in Everfrost Peaks.

a Frostfell Goblin says 'Happy Frostfell stranger.' The goblin bounces around as he speaks. 'You're probably wondering why we are here. We are in desperate need for some help! Our master has been [brainwashed]!'

You say, 'Brainwashed?'

a Frostfell Goblin says 'Yes, brainwashed. He is no longer the same person he used to be! He is no longer jolly! Actually, he is being quite naughty! Attacking travelers across Norrath is very naughty! Not jolly! We are too small to save him! Will you [help] us?'

You say, 'I will help you'

You have been assigned the task 'Frostfell - Searching for Clues'.

a Frostfell Goblin says 'If you find him, you will surely find some clues to the mystery. Clues are the answer! Look for him in any of these [regions] across Norrath! You won't miss him; he is very big and very red! Go now! Save our master!'

Santug Claugg has been spotted in Everfrost and Butcherblock so far.

Santug Claugg shouts 'Fighting Santug? That is so naughty me have to go add it to me list right now!'

Santug Claugg shouts 'You waste Santug's time! Must go back to work!'

Loot clues from the corpses of his accompanying grimps.

--You have looted a Clue: A Broken Toy.
--You have looted a Clue: Fragment of a Charm scroll.
--You have looted a Clue: A Snowball with a Rock in it.
--You have looted a Clue: A Symbol of Innoruuk.

I started this quest and got to the point of handing the items to goblin. Had to camp, went back today and they are gone... So it looks like I'm s.o.l... Also, second account can not get this quest. Anyone know if/how to get the stocking or am I wasting my time?

Search Alla's list for Frostfell quests, there are 7 total that have to do with the Stocking line. Quest 1 and 2 are only up for a week or so, then Santug is saved from the Grinnuch and those quests are taken down for quests 3 and 4. From what I can see you can still max out the stocking with quests 3 through 7.

Get the quest off the Frostfell goblin in PoK and head to the Halas portal to the everfrost newbie area. Kill the grimps until you have 5 different clues - idol, snowball, fur, torn letter and a toy (what the items look like not exact names).

Portal back to pok and hand in the items to complete the quest.

As we were doing this Santug strolled past and rooted me and mezzed my guildie. was hilarious, then he shrunk us and walked off :D

This quest has been changed this year, as far as the looting goes. You loot the items and then are supposed to turn them into the goblin for updates, but he hands them all back and the hand ins doesn't update any of them.

We are trying to start this quest and cannot seem to find the goblin in Everfrost. I noticed that Goblin, Santug, and Cook were sitting at town entrance in Felwithe. I sure hope it is not too late - we really want to do this one.

I popped into the game this evening just now, about 5 hours after a server reset, and noticed two "a Frostfell goblin" are back in Cabilis East. I'll bet they're in PoK, too. I took the quest again, but I already have Santug's Stocking from last year. I wonder if it'll just fail to reward me at the end, or if the final reward will be different? (Doubt it, but I can hope!)

Nothing about it yet on the official forums, by the way.

I hope we can get another Santug's Stocking. But when I looked at the bag it said it was Lore, so I guess it will be another useless EQ Christmas quest if you have one already. Hoping that just maybe EQ will make it a different bag for this year Christmas quest.

Christmas 2006 is not actually a part of the task name -- but the related tasks are as follows:

1) Frostfell - Searching for Clues
2) Frostfell - Saving Santug
3) Upgrading Stockings (get 20% Stocking)

1 leads to 2 which leads to 3.

#3 is not an actual task -- it's more of a quest.

Anyway -- #1 to #3 must be done relatively soon after the task givers appear, as within a week, or you will miss out on them after Santug is saved.

The next ones can be done in any order (or at the same time). just be sure to turn in your Stocking after each one for the upgrades stocking (40&, 60%, 80% and then 100%.

Before you do any of the below, go ahead and trade up your stocking again (40%). Then the remaining tasks are:

Frostfell: A Gift for Tinam
Frostfell: Fireworks
Frostfell: Santug's List

The Frostfell: Fishing for a Feast did NOT allow me a stocking upgrade, so I assume the Chef tasks are not part of the tasks allowed for stocking upgrades.

I did this on Bertox with a 51 bard, a 15 chanter, a 10 mage and a 3rd lvl erudite pally. Grimps have 1 hp. Hit them and they die. Santug wanders the roads in Qeynos Hills from Surefall Glen to West Karana. He is always followed by lots of grimps which spawn as fast as they are killed. Get close and hit as many grimps as you can with a bow or a range spell. Then loot, follow and repeat. Santug will mez, snare, root, fear, and hit you with a 10 pt nuke. Nuisances, specially mez, which means you cannot shoot or cast, and snare, I hate moving slow. Still this part of quest is completely doable by even a 3rd lvl erudite pally. Pally had the quested charm from tutorial, belt, mask and neck item from Crescent Reach, but was basically naked with nothing in more than half his slots. Longbow and 100 arrows, of course.

I know this isn't related to this quest, but where did they move the giants to? For some reason I've never come across them since the Frogloks got kicked out of Grobb.

Hmm, I believe there is more to this Christmas event than meets the eye. I just noticed another task mob standing near the GD stone in POK. Took a task off him called Old Frostbeard. It required me to dispatch the 5 winds of Frostbeard... I figured, bah, its an event, should be easy! How wrong I was! Found the winds on the mountain over the tunnel containing shardwurms. Snared with ranger and started shooting away when I noticed they con even to 70. Of course, they summon, and started quading me for close to 1k per hit. Ranger went down rather quick.

I suggest someone take a look into this with a group as I think it will probably be at least somewhat worth your while if you complete it.

Updates on above post.

K, so the objective is to kill 5 of those summoned storm things. Once that's done, you must recover a party motivator for M.C. Tinkerton (rofl). In order to do so, you have to kill Old Frostbeard. He's about same difficulty as the summoned, cons yellow at 70, but has a ton of hp. A friend and I got him down to 9% before we both croaked. Once you win, you get:

Emerald of the New Year

Recast Delay 10 seconds, type 1

This is actually 2 tasks, not one.

1st one is Searching for Clues (collect).

2nd one is The Grinnuch.

After you finish the 2nd one -- you are given a hint that in the near future, Satug will be in PoK and you can assist him to make the 2-slot 20% bag bigger and better... meaning there is at least a 3rd task, if not more, to come.

I suspect Xmas day will reveal this (if not the patch schedule tonite).

I've heard that Santug also spawns in South Ro, though since I didn't see it, I can't totally confirm it. The person was fighting caimans and was sent flying into the water.
