Winterfest is finally here and the Cozy Lodge is back, filled with presents for you to open. The event has also brought a long list of challenges for players to complete to earn extra XP and rewards throughout the next couple of weeks. The first challenge is to warm yourself by the Yule Log in the Cozy Lodge.
This is a simple quest, but getting to the Cozy Lodge can be confusing. The first thing you’ll need to do is go to the main title screen. On the top of the screen is a navigation bar to view different aspects of the game. There is now a new icon here that looks like a snowflake (it should have an exclamation point next to it if this is the first time you’re accessing it.) An example of this can be seen in the image below on the left.
In the image above on the right, you’ll see the next thing you need to select to go inside the Cozy Lodge. When you’re at the screen where you can see the Lodge in the distance, press the button on the bottom right that says, Visit Lodge. You will be transported inside the Lodge, where you’ll find all the presents and Sgt. Winter sitting in a chair.

The next two steps are shown in the images above. First, get closer to Sgt. Winter by selecting him on the screen. Then when you move closer to him, select the Yule Log (should now be on the left side of the screen) to zoom in on it. Wait a couple of seconds, and you’ll receive XP when the task is marked as complete!
That’s all there is to know about the first Winterfest challenge!
