How Does Frost Moon Work?
In the final waves, several of the same bosses appear at once. The most powerful accessories, weapons, etc. fall from enemies. To get these unique things, you will have to try hard, since the chance of these items drop is extremely low. But, with each wave, the chance of getting valuable loot from bosses increases. For example, in the 15th wave, the chance of dropping a trophy from the created and bosses increases to 25%, on the 17th wave to 33%, and on the 19th wave to 50%.
The entire event consists of 15 waves, plus 5 bonus waves. For every enemy killed, you get kill points. They are needed to move to the next wave. After moving to the next wave, your points are reset, and you need to collect these points again to move on to the next wave.
If during the event you die, then it will not end. The event ends with the onset of dawn only. Also if you leave the world, and then enter it, then the event will end.
