Anyone know what the Giver's Insignia let you craft? Is it a standard skin, but with different stats?
It's an insignia as any other one - with the difference that it has HEALING POWER, TOUGHNESS and +1% Boon Duration
It's easily the best event so far, imho. Won't unnecessarily fawn over it right now, but the jumping puzzle, the snowball mayhem and the bell choir ensemble are incredibly fun to do. Had a blast doing them today already for quite some hours.
The only negative thing so far that caught my attention, was the fact that you get 3 currencies - what for? The costs for each differ from another for no obvious reason and you can't exchange them with one another to get your stuff in a reasonable amount of time - nah, you're stuck to collect all 3 of them for some odd reason.
Absolutely love the SLINGSHOT. Which is a precedence case for a weapon (shortbow) to get a skin of a completely new weapon (slingshot) and still be fully functionable, new animations and all - for me, that's pretty awesome!
120 Gifts opened so far, purely got crap but whatever. Still enjoyable so far.

If Anet had been truthful pior to release and mentioned that jumping puzzles, especially ones with kiddie themes, would be a major focus of all future 'new' content, I would have never given them my $60.
Yes now it can be said, the primary achievement of GW2 is the replacement of good MMO content with cheesy jumping puzzles.
What an utter waste.
Is Christmas now a Kiddie Theme? Oh boy. You sure need a hug - come let me... *ninja hugs* It's all right, big boy.
People who complain about a GAMBLE being a GAMBLE well deserve to have gotten rid of their money btw. Numbnuts
PS.: I am still a bit astonished that the Gem->Gold value isn't increasing really. You'd people would buy gems right now.
