    Impact of player settings

    Blizz Ard is a special version of a snow golem. It was a temporary mob that was created for the 2014 Holiday Event and re-appeared during the same periods in 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, and 2020.

    Blizz Ard spawns in the overworld, but it does not spawn in desert or ocean biomes; those biomes are not safe for snow golems. Upon spawning, the message "The area is getting colder..." appears in nearby players' Chat boxes as a signal that Blizz Ard is close.

    Additionally, Holiday Chests, first introduced in 2014, randomly generate in the Frontier and Wastelands during the same time frame when Blizz Ard spawns.

    The "Event Mob Spawns" option in your Player Settings will control whether or not Blizz Ard spawns for you. This does not affect other players nearby.

    Blizz Ard will despawn after 60 days.

    History(top)


    Blizz Ard was first introduced in the 2014 event, which lasted from December 18th, 2014 to January 11th, 2015. Blizz Ard attacked any players or mobs around it with harmless snowballs.

    Blizz Ard was added back for the 2015 event. With the 2015 release of Blizz Ard, it had its health reduced, and its snowballs were improved to deal damage. This version of the Blizz Ard also introduced more drops.
