Guild Wars 2 ‘Wintersday’ event is upon us, holiday cheer ensues

The Guild Wars tradition of Wintersday carries on in Guild Wars 2, which begins tomorrow and continues through January 3rd, 2013. For those of you who have been nice this year, bundles of holiday joy will be bestowed upon you! This includes gifts, mini-games and events. Tixx the Toymaster will be delivering toys to all the major cities in Guild Wars 2, and players will have opportunities to partake in events and earn toys at each stop. The airship will then settle in Lion Arch and open up even more content for you to enjoy. Presents falling from the sky and snowball fights sound like a good time to me.

The Wintersday event is scheduled as follows:

Friday, 14 December – Wintersday begins with a holiday-themed Lion’s Arch, numerous mini-games, presents falling from the sky and more.

Saturday, 15 December 15, 19:00 CET (20:00 GMT) – Tixx the Toymaker will make his first appearance at The Grove followed by stops at every capital for one day each.

Thursday, 20 December, 19:00 CET (20:00 GMT) – Tixx the Toymaker’s airship will hover over Lion’s Arch and remain there until Wintersday ends.

Thursday, 3 January 3 19:00 CET (20:00 GMT) – The Wintersday event ends.

Kudos to NCSoft and ArenaNet for rewarding players this holiday season. More information can be found on the Official Wintersday page. Happy Wintersday!
