Wintersday


Seasons are changing, hearths are warming, and spirits are high. Wintersday is almost here! Tyrians are busily preparing for the longest night of the year, and Lion’s Arch wants to celebrate with an event to remember. The Captain’s Council has invited renowned entertainment engineer, Tixx the Toymaker, to bring his unique creations to the citizens of Tyria.
The toymaker will spend a day in each of the five cities, and finish his tour with a two-week stay in Lion’s Arch. The airship events will begin at 10 a.m. PST on December 15th and end January 3^rd^.

  • 10 a.m. PST, Saturday, December 15th: Airship lands in The Grove for a 24-hour stay.
  • 10 a.m. PST, Sunday, December 16th: Airship lands in Divinity’s Reach for a 24-hour stay.
  • 10 a.m. PST, Monday, December 17th: Airship lands in The Black Citadel for a 24-hour stay.
  • 10 a.m. PST, Tuesday, December 18th: Airship lands in Hoelbrak for a 24-hour stay.
  • 10 a.m. PST, Wednesday, December 19th: Airship lands in Rata Sum for a 24-hour stay.
  • 10 a.m. PST, Thursday, December 20th: Airship lands in Lion’s Arch, where it will remain until January 3rd.

But that’s just the beginning of this Wintersday fête. Along with Tixx and his wondrous workshop, there will also be new holiday content:

  • Lion’s Arch, the Heart of the Mists, and the Home Map (Central Citadel) in WvW are decorated for the holiday.
  • Snowman building locations and present drops are available worldwide.
  • New crafting recipes are available.
  • PvP finishing moves and WvW siege weapon effects have been added.
  • Bell choir and snowball fight activities are available in Lion’s Arch, and can be accessed through an NPC near the snow globe.
  • A jumping puzzle is available in Lion’s Arch, and can be accessed through an NPC near the snow globe.
  • Events inside Tixx’s airship will reflect the toy released each day.
  • All toy events will be repeatable during Tixx’s stay in Lion’s Arch.
  • A toy-based activity will be available once Tixx reaches Lion’s Arch.
  • Tixx will be giving out a one-time gift while he’s in Lion’s Arch.
