With Publish 69, all characters that log in and are 30 days or older will receive a holiday gift ticket in their backpack until January 25, 2010. While the ticket can be use to claim a gift at any time, the ticket must be received before the deadline. The gift ticket is Blessed and may only be used by the original character that receives it. When used, the character is presented with a choice of one of four different gifts.
When a gift selection is made, the ticket is consumed and a Gift Box is placed in the character's backpack containing the chosen gift as well as a red or green Candy Cane and a Holiday Card from a random dev team member.
- A Deed For A Holiday Tree - A gift that has appeared in previous years but now with more display options, the deed may be used to place a Holiday Tree in player homes in one of four styles:
- Classic - Fully ornamented and lit fir tree
- Modern - Tapering Tuscan pine tree with strings of lights
- Classic Bare - Same as Classic, without any foliage
- Modern Bare - Same as Modern, without any foliage
- Same Gift Box variants from Holiday 2009 are used with the Holiday 2010 gifts, the one with angels being the "rare" one.
- While the Holiday Tree Deeds have all four display options to choose from, the "Bare"(no lights or ornaments) options are the only ones available during "Off Seasons".
- Only characters 30 days or older will be given Holiday Gift tickets.
- Characters younger than 30 days will receive a system message at login stating they are too young to receive a gift ticket.
