# 1 Gingerbread men?
12-08-2013, 06:58 AM
How does one attain one of the 'pet' gingerbread men? I've run the Winter Invasion about 15 times and only get common commodities. We always rescue the gingerbread men, collect the candy, defeat the yeti, and the snowman boss. Anyone..?

By opening the boxes you get on the end, I already got two.

How many races did you run before you got them in the reward box? Did anything special have to happen to get them?

It's a random reward... you can run 1000 runs and get 1000... or none... all depends on your luck.

15 to 20, nothing special has to happen. On tip though; don't open two boxes after eachother, they tend to be te same . Has that couple of times already.

All my alts have at least one gingerbread pet, my main has not got one. I now send the presents to my main to open, lol OH but my main does have 3 freaking lumps of coal.

I'm curious, and I come with two questions.

1) Last year, we had animated snowman pets per the Christmas Event. Following the event however, the animation for the snowmen stopped working. Is it going to be the same this year? If we all get a bunch of gingerbread men, are they going to stop being animated come the end of the festive season?

2) In one of the Dev Blogs, it mentions six different variants. Two of which are Orion and Andorian. What are the other four?

If they correspond to the ones in the gingerbread village it's Orion (got one), male Andorian, female Andorian, male Vulcan (got one), female Vulcan and Klingon.

It's random, see. And the way that works means:

For some of my characters, they've done the event 20 times and still don't have one. Others got one the first time they ran it.

The answer is mentioned in the item/ "power" description for the Gingerbread pet -- they are only animated during the Winter Event. Since the Winter Event is running, your snowman pet is also animated upon summon during the duration of the event.
