Snowballs, candy canes and presents can only mean one thing…the holiday season has officially arrived in Tyria as the Guild Wars 2 universe kicks off its annual in-game event, Wintersday, today! ArenaNet invites you to join the celebration of this long-standing and beloved holiday tradition now through Jan. 2nd.
This year, players will be able to enjoy some new surprises, including ice castle-themed guild hall decoration pieces and the “Secret Lair of the Snowmen,” a 10-player instance with unique rewards, including Wintergreen-themed weapons. There will also be new additions to the set of candy cane themed weaponry, several new minipets, rare items from the Wintersday gift boxes and new meta-achievements.
In addition, players can look forward to the return of their favorite holiday festivities and activities:
- The Winter Wonderland jumping puzzle
- Mount races through Divinity’s Reach
