The event page for Wintersday has been updated! Here are some of the event highlights:
  • New Wintersday Items in the Gem Store: With festive town clothes, wintery weapon skins, and chests full of holiday treasures, The Black Lion Trading Company has everything you need to celebrate Wintersday! Check out the new items and much more in the Gem Store today!
  • Winter Wonderland: It’ll take more than a good pair of snow boots to get you through this Wintersday’s jumping puzzle. Speak to the Festive Youth near the snow globe in Lion’s Arch to test your luck—and your balance.
  • Snowball Mayhem: If you’ve got holiday spirit and a good throwing arm, visit the Festive Lionguard near the Lion’s Arch snow globe to try out the new snowball fight PvP activity!
  • Bell Choir: Ring in the season with this new musical activity inside the Lion’s Arch snow globe, accessed through the Bell Maestro. It doesn’t matter if you have rhythm—Wintersday is all about harmony.

'Chests full of holiday treasures' - Time to buy Black Lion chests to flip before the price starts to spike, I think. I've been saving the keys since Halloween so hopefully I'll be luckier than before.

Ooooh, I hope Bell Choir is as fun as it sounds! Also, I'm very curious as to whether or not Tixx will be handing out toys in every city...

It says on the event page that when he gets to Lion's Arch you can play the previous events, so I'm guessing that if you miss anything from his stops, you still get to play them once he gets to LA + Toypocalypse!!

Super excited btw!!

so lets say you miss the 15th because you are in another country without the computer and such, will you be able to get the toy when you get back on the 28th?

If you miss any of the days in a specific city, you can re-play that days event all over again once Tixx arrives in Lion’s Arch. He will let you do this the entire time he is in Lion’s Arch, from his arrival there until the Wintersday event comes to an end.

Let's hope so - bad track record so far.  They need a hit, I hope this is it.

Good. Anet needs to quit trying to be cute and cryptic about their events. That was one of the biggest flubs with the Halloween event.

With Wintersday it looks like they wised up on that front, and also applied some common sense to the event schedule.

We'll see if they do better with the bugged/broken event content in a few days.

Can't wait to see jumping puzzles, themed cities, the bell game, toys and everything else. Good one, Anet.

My sister picked the worst weekend to get married. Across the other side of the country no less. :unsure:

At least I can play catch-ups when I get home :D

I hope it DOESN'T wear off, until A.Net makes the *holiday* events more enjoyable and less RNG.. it's a holiday event afterall.
