New World Winter Convergence Points of Interest
There are two new types of POIs in New World in accordance with Winter Convergence: Winter Villages and Ice Caves.
Players must visit Winter Villages in order to begin the seasonal quests and, in some cases, perform Winter Convergence Tasks. There are four on Aeternum:

These will remain after the event as scars on the land, demonstrating the immense power of the Winter Warrior that always lurks around the turn of the seasons.
New World Winter Convergence Tasks and Quests
Winter Convergence features its own quest line with each step increasing in difficulty. As players progress through the event, they may find themselves out leveled, as the recommended levels span from 15 to 60. The average required level is 25.
There are seven new quests in accordance with Winter Convergence:
- The Winter Convergence
- Tree of Light
- Joy Recaptured
- Gleamite Crystals
- Yetis Abound
- Wanderer Reborn
- Winter Warrior
The first quest in the chain can be picked up from one of the four aforementioned Winter Villages.
In addition to quests, there are three repeatable tasks players can use to grind reputation and Winter Tokens: The Convergence Spirit, Lost Present Recovery, and Gleamite Showers.
The Convergence Spirit tasks players with performing town/settlement projects to upgrade each town’s Tree of Light.
Players can find Lost Presents all over Aeternum and return to them to the Winter Villages for Winter Tokens. Some presents may be floating through the sky and require a ranged weapon to be knocked down.
Every so often, at random intervals, a rift will open in the sky and Gleamite will rain down. These are called “Gleamite Showers” which scatter the ground with Gleamite deposits. The deposits can be mined, Gleamite collected, and then exchanged at Winter Villages.
