I've been farming the jumping puzzle for these and the quaggan mini. I was just wondering if my work is worth it and if it is remotely possible for the quaggan pet to drop?

That's the same gift, right?

So how exactly do we get a Baby Quaggan pet? So there's a difference between the gift boxes we get from the Tixx events and the Mystery boxes we get from the Gem store???

Dulfy says that it can be crated via Mystic Forge using any Wintersday pet and 50 enchanted stuffing

Rare mystery Wintersday boxes will have a chance to drop throughout the world. They will also be available in the consumable category of the Gem Store. They will contain gifts available in-game, plus a random item only available in the store.
Boxes will contain one to five gifts, plus one of the following:
  • Common: a Wintersday dye pack, a gingerbread snowball mortar, or one of three unique Wintersday transformation tonics.
  • Uncommon: One of three new festive miniatures; a snowman, a festive golem, or the toymaker’s Infinirarium.
  • Rare: The festive fur cap, and a claim ticket for your choice of winter wooden weapons.
  • Very Rare: Infinite self-style hair kit or unique Wintersday baby quaggan miniature.
The Wintersday baby quaggan miniature can also be crafted in the Mystic Forge by using any combination of miniature snowmen, infinirarium, or festive golems, and 50 enchanted stuffing (available in-game). The “mystery Wintersday box” is available in consumables for 100 gems each, or 10 for 800 gems.

So from my understanding of this, you have the Gifts, which shouldn't contain minis and then you have Rare Mystery Wintersday Boxes which can be either bought in the cash shop or have a very low chance of dropping in the world and those RMWB have an uncommon chance to have a mini. And then you need 3 minis to craft a Quaggan mini.
I haven't come across any RMWB yet.

I opened 160,000 Giant Wintersday Gifts.

Out of all that, I got 8 Unbreakable Bells and 6 Tonics.

Well, I think I've opened about a thousand gifts, always getting excited when a recipe pops up but it fades fast. Drop rate on this is almost as bad as the mini polar bear in GW1. I guess they never got away from the hyper-rarity kick they were on.

It looks like it's about 1 per server.

Not to speak of the Permanent Self-Style kit .. which can't be crafted in any other way!  :(

Not only that, this would represent one of THE best options for a gold sink in the game. It hurts the rich more than the poor and it's complete vanity and it would be in massive demand.

184 gold on the TP, 15 available world-wide .. which should say something about the drop rate!
I agree that Anet isn't doing a lot to fight gold inflation. A lot of things that would take gold out of the game are now on the gem shop.

Once again GW2 is absolutely terrible when drop rates are in question (they don`t make things rarem they make them mythical) !

On the other hand BIG inflation works extremely well for Anet, the more gold you need (the less chance you can grind it) so with high exchange of gold for gems......solution that is blessing for Anet :P go figure who would thought !

Since this thread has been moved to Q&A and the OP was looking for an answer to the question, try to keep posts from now on limited to getting that question answered. If you want to discuss the droprates any further, please look for a thread in TA or make one of your own. Thanks.

EDIT: thanks for informing me Protoss.
