Bells are ringing, snowballs are flying, and Toymaster Tixx's fantastic golem-shaped airship is hovering over Divinity's Reach—the traditional Tyrian seasonal celebration of Wintersday is here again!
— Official website
Unlike previous events and Wintersday celebrations, Wintersday 2015 uses karma as a primary currency. Participating in Wintersday activities granted large amounts of karma, with an additional bonus given for a player's first 3 wins in any given activity for each day.
Previous Wintersday-related items received a heavy revamp:
- Wintersday Gifts were reduced to a single quality. Previously held gifts became "Dusty" versions that could be converted into the new version.
- Players can now use 2 snowflakes of the same quality to create a snowflake of the next tier.
- Flawless Snowflakes can be given to Guild merchants to receive Pile of Snow guild decorations.
- Ugly wool clothes and Toy weapon skins can be used to make Wrapped Gifts, helping to remove them from the economy.
