Special Events[edit | edit source]

From time to time the game has special events which change the look of Taal's Horn Keep.

Each event also has special Quests which can often reward a special Portrait Frame.

Mondstill Celebration[edit | edit source]

Festively Frozen

This event was presented on patch 1.4.1

It hasn't introduced any changes to the keep's visual appearance, but included two seasonal quests rewarded with seasonal portrait frames:

  • "A Season for Slaughter", where players have to complete 5 quick play games on Legend Difficulty to acquire a "Wolf of Winter" frame.
NOTE: Patch notes have stated custom games are valid for this quest as well
  • "Let Fire Guide Thee", where player needs to find and light 4 bonfires on four different maps (one bonfire on each map) to acquire the "Festively Frozen" animated frame.

A Quiet Drink[edit | edit source]

This event was presented for the Vermintide 2 one and two year anniversary along with the Vermintide: End Times five year anniversary. It takes place on a Helmgart map that mixes some elements of previous levels. Bottles of ale are disseminated in the second half of the level, and players have to drink them so as to not fall in an Hungover state, where they cannot use their special ability. Drinking three bottles in a row grants a greatly accelerated cooldown on your special ability, but drinking more will immediately put you out of combat.

The quests it brought were :

  • Finish the level to get a frame.
  • The Flooded Crown: Find 9 pieces of Art in the level to get a painting.
  • No Bottle Left Unemptied: Drink all of the bottles in the level to get another frame.

Geheimnisnacht[edit | edit source]

Fangtastic Fortitude

This event reigns during Halloween and adds pumpkins and more candles to the Keep to add to the season's atmosphere. Not only this, but during the event most of the outdoors missions are set in night mode, where the only lights are cast by Mannslieb and Morrslieb in the sky. The event has a themed Weekly Event, two event quests and the frame "Fangtastic Fortitude" has been brought back.

The portrait frame "Fangtastic Fortitude" can be obtained by playing a game with a person who also has the portrait. The other one, "Deathwalker", is obtainable from an event mission.

The halloween quests are:

  • The Most Horrible Time of the Year: Complete the Weekly Event - Rewards Ravaged Art: The Butcher of Blood Bay
  • By the Light of the Twin Moons: Complete 10 Quick Play Missions - Rewards Deathwalker Portrait Frame

Happy Holidays!
