Guild Wars players are now participating in the annual Wintersday Festival. The festival comes complete with snowball fights, special rewards, new quests and more. Keep reading!
Can you feel that crisp chill in the air? It's that time of year when the cities of Tyria shine like beacons with festive decor, and the gods Dwayna and Grenth fight over who will control the weather during the coming months. Holiday vendors sell seasonal treats, and the air is full of snowballs and the sound of laughter. Wintersday is almost here!
The towns of Lion's Arch, Droknar's Forge, Ascalon City, Kamadan, and the Eye of the North will be decked out in Wintersday decorations. Visitors to Lion's Arch, Kamadan, and the Eye of the North will be invited to participate in holiday quests, missions, and games, all with their own rewards.
Mark your calendar! Wintersday events begin at Noon Pacific Time (-8 GMT) on Friday, December 18, 2009, and run until Noon on Monday, January 4, 2010. The Wintersday grand finale will take place on Wintersday itself, in Lion's Arch and Kamadan. It begins at 12:01 AM Pacific on Friday, January 1, 2010, and repeats every three hours until 12:01 AM on Saturday, January 2, 2010. Don't be surprised if a snowball fight breaks out before the end of the festival!
