From Guild Wars 2 Wiki
objects that spawn during Wintersday 2012. They can be found in any zone and are indicated by on the minimap. They were allegedly dropped across Tyria by a certain airship. There is one Mysterious Present for each area of the zone and they respawn after approximately 5 minutes. Interacting using the Unwrap action will cause it to explode, pushing you and then launching you back. This will spawn presents. The present will contain 0-3 presents with 1-2 presents being more common than getting three or none. There is also a chance foes will spawn from the present, which include toys produced at Tixx's Infinirarium. Killing the toys that spawn will contribute Buster of the Busted. Presents can be picked up once by everyone around, giving a Wintersday Gift.
There is a chance that a group of foes spawns when the present explodes. Their level scales with the area, being 2 less than the effective level of the player who opened the present. Possible groups are:
- 5 Skritt, consisting of Skritt Foragers, Skritt Bottle Lobbers, Skritt Gear Lobbers, and Skritt Pistoliers.
- 5 Toy Ventaris after Tixx's airship visited the Grove.
- 5 Princess Dolls after Tixx's airship visited Divinity's Reach.
- 1 Toy Captain and 4 Toy Soldiers after Tixx's airship visited the Black Citadel.
- 5 Plush Griffons after Tixx's airship visited Hoelbrak.
- 5 Toy Golems after Tixx's airship visited Rata Sum.
- 5 random foes of any of the above after Tixx's airship arrived at Lion's Arch.
- The skritt spawning from the present are hostile against other foes, including their own team members when a mixed group spawns.
