Quote:
The Season of the Colossus is loosening its grip,
But there are still the icy patches. Careful or you'll slip!
Perhaps you are the type to frolic in the frosty glow.
Perhaps you wear a fuzzy scarf until the Zephyrs blow.
Whichever type of reveler you know yourself to be,
One thing is true: this is a time for sweet festivity.
So wrap your hand around a ball of snow or mug of cheer.
Pelt your foes! Hug your friends! Wintersday is here!

-- from Guild Wars Wiki

Wintersday runs from Thursday, December 15th, 2011 - Tuesday, January 3rd, 2012, noon PST.

Finale, during which festival hats will be given out every 3 hours on January 1st.

Wintersday quests available now.

New costumes available for purchase in online store: Augur of Kormir and Vision of Lyssa. They can be purchased seperately or at a discounted price for both. Or for those who did not buy the previous Tyrian deity costumes there is the Limited Edition Pantheon Pack which contains all 6 costumes.

Interview with the Live Team leader John Stumme – Part 1, Winds of Change - a small group (three designers [one does PVP], one programmer and two Q&A) maintains Guild Wars 1. An undisclosed number of volunteers test the new builds for the Live Team.

So as it stands right now, there will not be a part 4 to Guild Wars: Beyond, no seeing what happens to Elona (Guild Wars: Nightfall).

Guild Wars: Beyond:
1: The War in Kryta (Guild Wars: Prophecies, Guild Wars: Eye of the North)
2: Hearts of the North (Guild Wars: Prophecies, Guild Wars: Eye of the North)
3: Winds of Change (Guild Wars: Factions)

Part 1 requires completing either Prophecies or Eye of the North.

Part 2 requires completing part 1.

Part 3 requires completing Factions, does not require doing part 1 or 2 however part 3 does feature a character introduced in part 2.

It could be good news. The only reason they could not have time to do Elona is if Guild Wars 2 is coming out sooner rather than later.

I hope part 2 of the interview mentions the Mad King's court, Stumme's left hints before that there would be more about them but there wasn't anything new added to Halloween or Wintersday.

This year's Wintersday finale rewards either one hood (which can be dyed) if Dwayna wins and spring comes early, or three scarves (one black, one red/white striped, one black/white striped one) if Grenth wins and winters lasts longer.

I did Grenth first and got the scarves, which I think are too big. I said make me look like Tom Baker's Doctor Who, somebody else said "where's Waldo?".

Now I'll park in even numbered district in LA to get the hood, while I go to work.

I'm worried. They're going to "update" the elementalist for Guild Wars 1. I'm worried because the talked about changing "Invoke Lightning" which right now is probably the best elite air skill. I don't want them ruining my favorite skill. They already weakened "Searing Flame" which used to be best fire spell until they nerfed it.

The updated to dervish made it better for PVE. Some say the weakened dervish in PVP but I don't see how that's the case.

The update on mesmer on the other hand didn't improve the class. Just made it less efficient in using a secondary profession with it.

So they're updates are not always good in my opinion.

I wish they wouldn't tinker with Guild War 1 skills, just concentrate on getting Guild War 2 right.

If the leaked list of changes is correct, they're also ruining my second most used air magic skill. I won't be able to play my first character the way I want anymore.

Update done and its even worse, not only are my two favorite air magic skills no useless since they always cause exhaustion but the reduced the damage done by 5 ritualist skills. What used to be the best ritualist elite shouldn't even be called elite anymore.
