Holiday Book.png

The Book of Holiday is a Christmas themed book that was added in December 2020. While not particularly a good book in 1v1 settings, it does decently in team settings with the ability to give everyone spells through Presents! and its AOE Heal. Also changes your player into Santa!

The Holiday familiar is Ho! Ho! Ho! It turns the player into Santa, making them weigh more but long jump further, and be merry.

Familiar specific changes:

  • Level 1-5: Each level increases the max uses of Presents!, Santa's Magic, and Thanksgiving Dinner.
  • Level 5: Gain the spell Gift of Giving, and Reindeer's get 1 use of Santa's Magic.
