The nights may be long and dark, but Tyrians of all races keep joy alive during the ancient holiday of Wintersday. While each race celebrates Wintersday in their own unique way, children all over Tyria share a common love of one thing: toys.

This year the city of Lion’s Arch will host the asuran Toymaker Tixx as their special Wintersday guest of honor. Before Tixx arrives in Lion’s Arch in his massive airship toy workshop, he’ll visit every major city in Tyria to deliver Wintersday toys and holiday cheer.

The special event article tracks the progress of Wintersday 2012.

Tixx's Infinirarium dungeon[edit]

Tixx's Infinirarium is a Wintersday-themed dungeon accessed from the airship as it moves from city to city. The location of the dungeon will be indicated with the dungeon map icon. Once the airship reaches Lion's Arch, players will be able to play through each of the Tixx's Infinirarium events from previous cities by entering the Tixx's Infinirarium and choosing which toy to make from the Toy Makers Console.

Activities[edit]

Most of the activities for Wintersday are located in the Enchanted Snow Globe.

Mysterious Presents[edit]

See also: Mysterious Present, Present

Mysterious Presents began appearing across Tyria, allegedly from a devious airship. These presents contain some rather dangerous surprises. Players will find presents that provide gift boxes. These gift boxes provide various Wintersday-related items. The small, medium, large, giant, and personalized gift boxes all have an equal chance of dropping the Endless Toymaker's Tonic and the Unbreakable Choir Bell.[1]

Magic Snow[edit]

Piles of Magic Snow can be found around Tyria under floating snow dispensers. Players can build a Magic Snowman from the snow, which spawns several snowballs. This adds to the Cold-Weather Friend achievement. See Magic Snow for more information, including the locations.

Snowball Mayhem[edit]

Primary article: Snowball Mayhem

Snowball Mayhem pits two teams in an 8v8 match of snowball dominance. Players have a choice of three class: heavy gunner, scout, or supporter. They must bring gifts back to their base and defeat other players. This activity serves as the successor to Dwayna Vs Grenth activity from the Guild Wars.

Winter Wonderland[edit]

Primary article: Winter Wonderland

Winter Wonderland is a Wintersday-themed jumping puzzle. Players must race to the end with their gifts for the children before frostbite stops them in their tracks. This features snowflakes, candy canes, gift boxes, giant snowballs, a snowman overlooking the area, and other Wintersday material.

Bell Choir[edit]

Primary article: Bell Choir

Bell Choir is a music activity for fans of rhythm-based games. You play the upper, middle, or lower portion of Wintersday and Guild Wars 2 music along with two other players. The songs will grow more challenging as the activity goes on.

Notes[edit]

  • The Toypocalypse Canceled reward was changed in a game update to compensate that fact that players can't join in teams. [2]
