Fafnir's Wonderland was an event and a PvE (Player vs Environment) game mode added with SMITE Version 3.22.3756.1, the patch released on November 21, 2016. It was disabled on January 10, 2017. This event was part of the Odyssey 2017.
This game mode, along with Escape from the Underworld and Xing Tian's Mountain, served as inspiration for the Adventures system. Additional information can be found here: Fafnir's Winter Wonderland promo site.
Xing Tian is on vacation, so the fight has moved to Fafnir's Wonderland, a wintery battleground hosted by the Lord of Glitering Gold himself. The gods find themselves locked in combat against some less nefarious encounters than were found on Xing Tian's Mountain.
Gods from every Pantheon will descend on Fafnir's Wonderland in an effort to differentiate themselves as the champions once and for all!
This new five-player co-op gamemode combines the best parts of MMO-style boss encounters and wave-based survival modes into a truly unique experience. Players will fight a randomly selected encounter and try to defeat it in the time limit. Upon success, players will move to the next round which will be more difficult in defenses and damage.
All 15 encounters are broken into Tier 1 and Tier 2 versions. Tier 2 versions add additional elements to the encounter, making them more challenging.
- Easy Mode
- You begin round 1 fighting each of the 15 encounters on Tier 1.
- On round 16, you change to Tier 2 encounters.
- Players start at Round 1 fighting each of the 15 new encounters on their Tier 1 difficulty.
- Upon reaching Round 16, the encounters change to their Tier 2 versions and scale in difficulty from there.
- Hard Mode
- Players start at Round 1 fighting each of the 15 encounters on their Tier 2 difficulty.
- Hard Mode is locked until you complete round 15 on Easy.
Players can unlock achievements by accumulating points. The top players from each mode will be shown on a leaderboard, showcasing how long players can survive in Fafnir's Wonderland.
