Guild Wars 2 starts Wintersday today

Wings of snow.

Today is not a winter’s day, nor is it the start of winter days. That’s the solstice, which is on December 22nd this year. But it is the start of Wintersday in Guild Wars 2, which is… an extended celebration based upon Christmas festivities, which is also not for another week and change. So the timing is a mess all around, but the festivities are all right.

Of course, that’s not all today’s update contains; there are also Fractal changes, bug fixes, and quality of life improvements. But it’s the holiday part that’s the closest to being timely just the same, since Fractal Day isn’t until May.

A guide is currently in progress for the various goings-on around the holiday over on Dulfy.net, if you’re wondering how you can grab the most out of the celebration. There are also new hairstyles available in the gem store, which aren’t particularly festive but can serve as an excellent way to feel more festive. Or just serve as, you know, new hairstyles.

Esoteric Coyote Greaterdivinity MillianaDragneel I have a friend who actually has gotten three of those (he is the luckiest person in the world I’d swear). He kept two to give to each of his accounts (he’s an altoholic) and gave one to his GF.

Yep. One person. Three permanent hair kits. Crazy.

Actintous It maybe so for half of the globe but 90% of Earth’s population lives in the Northern Hemisphere, though I don’t know how much that translates into the player population.

Pretty nice this year, not many new things (giving gifts to orphans is hard however, needs more orphans… heh), but it uses old stuff nicely with some decent rewards (the should piece is not too hard nor expensive, except for the alcohol).
Love most of the new hairstyles, but they’re a bit anime-style on humans.

And just for you Americans, behold his Majesty Trump in GW2:

It’s a pretty interesting thought, because in GW2 it’s not winter ingame, there are floating snow dispensers scattered in the cities to make snow patches all around.

After 2 & 1/2 years of not logging into GW2, I started playing it again this week. Improvement is an understatement IMO. This game has changed for the better in so many ways IMO.
Really enjoying my play time, that is all.

Speak for yourself, I live in New York, last night when I went to work it was 55 out with a torrential downpour, I thought I was going to drown while running towards my car; 20 years ago this would have been a snow storm before global warming.
