I believe these threads existed for the Halloween BLC drops, but I didn't see one for the Christmas drops, so I figured I'd start one. If there's a thread that already exists on this, please merge it with that one.

20 chests opened:

3x Wintersday Dye Kits
50x Personalized Wintersday Gifts (with random snowflakes, trophies, and a recipe)
2x Mini Festive Golems
2x Mini Infrinariums
Mini Snowman
10x Raindeer Tonics
4x Snowman Tonics
8x Winter Warband Tonics
Winter's Weapon Claim Ticket

Go ahead and post your drops here.

I might buy another set of 20 because I'm addicted to gambling and a moron... we'll see. Shall post here if I do.

40 boxes.

Some snowflakes and other things that weren't mini pets :/ Looks like I won't be buying any of those ever again.

30 boxes:
- 3 minis
- Permanent hair style kit
- quite a few personal gifts
- some dyes
- some snowflakes

I really just wanted the three 3 minis for Foostivoo but at about 14 boxes in I got the permanent hair style kit so that was a bonus!

I've heard some talk that there are other minis you can get through the event dungeon rewards? Don't quote me on that though, I'm not 100% on it.

I believe you will be able to craft them using the materials you get from Tixx in the different cities. I'm not sure whether or not you will get enough mats to craft all 3 pets but I think you can get probably 1 or 2 from the 5 different city dungeon instances.

You currently have:

The four "holiday" mini's can be found in: the mystery chest and giant gifts (as of so far, Foostivoo has been confirmed, I'd imagine the others are in there as well). The .dat file has been datamined and there's a triple festival mini-pack in there, so I'd expect it to appear in the next few days.

Of the "toys" you will be able to create two of the whole set per account (100 gears awarded per day, need 250 for a toy, so 500 total leads to you making two of the set of five) but they are also individually on sale in the gem store under the minis tab as they become available (Ventauri is the only resident at the moment).

As for my contribution; 10 chests:
3 Minis
1 Toy Slingshot
A bunch of snowflakes and boxes.

Opened 2, got 4 personalized gifts, 2 festive mortars and a mini infinirarium. Didn't get the perma hairstyle thing I wanted, but this was ok too. Not going to buy any more. :P

Would kill for one of the perm hair style kits, but looking at these results you could buy 40 chests and not even get a single pet, let alone the far rarer kit (plus I don't really even want the pets and you can't trade them). :(

/sigh at RNG

There are 4 minis exclusive to the boxes. The other 5 are obtainable through direct purchase from the gem store OR crafting them. The permanent hairstyle change is also exclusive to the boxes.

Alrighty, I bought some more chests, thus, results for 20 more:

x60 Personal Wintersday Gifts
x4 Festive Golem Tonics
x2 Festive Hats
Mini Snowman
Mini Festive Golem

The first round was definitely better, probably should have stuck to that.

I opened 40 with only the festive golem mini as worthwile drop, oh and one festive hat.
Loads of tonics, presents with crap in them and those festive mortars that do absolutely nothing.

BF opened 10 and got 4 mini's (one double) and Festivoo.
Sigh...

I used gems from ages ago to get some no way im wasting real life money on this gambling scummy tactics by Anet.

20 chests opened.

Got 7 minis, and 2 wintersday skin tickets plus random crap.

I guess I got lucky, went to mystic forge and crafted baby quaggan. Got all the mini's now plus the skins I wanted for free.

All im missing now is the wintersday outfit and the toys, so time to spend some more gold.
