    Type: Miscellaneous
    Released: December 18th, 2014
    Update: Seasonal
    Obtained by: Token Exchange; Blizz Ard Drop
    Attributes: Soulbound
    Lore: One snowball to rule them all / <=: Happy Holidays 2014 :=>
    The 2014, 2015, and 2016 Holiday Seasons brought snow golem known as Blizz Ard to the Empire, which uses the Avalauncher as its weapon. The Avalauncher snowball is a companion item for the mob, acting as a mechanized part of Blizz Ard that will allow any player who obtains it to fire snowballs infinitely.

    The lore shown in the information on the right shows the 2014 version. The 2015 and 2016 versions of the Avalauncher do not show the year in its lore, instead reading "Happy Holidays" in red text.

    Obtaining an Avalauncher(top)

    To obtain an Avalauncher in 2014, players had to redeem one for Tokens rather than killing the mob. In 2015, players could either use Tokens to purchase the Avalauncher or they could defeat Blizz Ard, getting an Avalauncher as a potential rare drop.

    The introduction of a Token exchange meant that the Avalauncher could be redeemed as a promotional item, an offer lasting only for the Holiday period. This could be achieved initially by filling out the form in this thread but was later automated and available via an in-game command in 2014 for 20,000 Tokens. In 2015 and 2016 the command could be used by players to purchase an Avalauncher for 10,000 Tokens.
