Wintersday: The Wondrous Workshop of Toymaker Tixx
December 14 to January 3

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.

Was natuurlijk te verwachten dat dit er aan zat te komen maar ben zeer benieuwd wat ze in GW2 gaan doen aan events/aankleding van de verschillende steden e.d.

Kijk er heel erg naar uit want in GW1 was wintersday een van mn favoriete events

Ik heb persoonlijk geen problemen met die gigantische events. Beetje laggy en soms wat moeilijk om killcredit te krijgen. Maar over het algemeen wel vermakelijk genoeg :)

Overigens viel Halloween erg mee.

Had ook voornamelijk te maken dat het grootste gedeelte van halloween in een aparte map plaatsvond en niet zoals lost shores een groot zergfestijn in LA en southsun cove. Zoveel chaos vinden de meeste laptops en pc's niet zo leuk.
Ik verwacht met wintersday eigenlijk niet al te veel problemen aangezien er buiten de eventuele events, geen massale gevechten (m.u.v. sneeuwballen gevechten) plaats gaan vinden. Ten minste daar ga ik van uit :P

Video is helaas nog niet te bekijken maar dan weten we in ieder geval wel waar :top:

Kan trouwens ook gewoon op de site van guildwars2.com maar via youtube is het betere kwaliteit.

Ziet er leuk uit. Volgens mij zie je in de video tussen 0:43-0:46 een jumping puzzle. Zou wel gaaf zijn alleen hopelijk wordt die niet zo chaotisch als de clocktower van halloween :P

Ze hebben meer informatie vrijgegeven op de event pagina.

New Wintersday Items in the Gem Store
With festive town clothes, wintery weapon skins, and chests full of holiday treasures, The Black Lion Trading Company has everything you need to celebrate Wintersday! Check out the new items and much more in the Gem Store today!

Schedule of Events
Despite the name, Wintersday is actually a multi-week winter festival celebrated all across Tyria (except in Orr, where there is not a lot of cheer.) Tixx travels to each of the cities, bringing new activities, events, and surprises at each stop. And did we mention the toys? Enter Tixx’s airship toy workshop, an instanced map designed for groups of 5 players.

December 14
The Wintersday celebration begins! You’ll find the customary snowmen, presents, and holiday cheer all over Tyria and in the Mists during Wintersday, but Lion’s Arch is really the place to be. Each year the citizens of Lion’s Arch deck the halls with festive décor and fill the air with holiday carols.

Even Zommoros, the eccentric djinn trapped within the Mystic Forge, loves Wintersday. He’s transformed the Forge into a giant snow globe that holds three brand-new holiday activities:

Winter Wonderland
It’ll take more than a good pair of snow boots to get you through this Wintersday’s jumping puzzle. Speak to the Festive Youth near the snow globe in Lion’s Arch to test your luck—and your balance.

Snowball Mayhem
If you’ve got holiday spirit and a good throwing arm, visit the Festive Lionguard near the Lion’s Arch snow globe to try out the new snowball fight PvP activity!

Bell Choir
Ring in the season with this new musical activity inside the Lion’s Arch snow globe, accessed through the Bell Maestro. It doesn’t matter if you have rhythm—Wintersday is all about harmony

December 15 10:00 AM PST (19:00 GMT+1)
The Grove
The Toymaker’s first stop of the season is on the home soil of the sylvari. Inside the airship, you’ll meet Tixx and his somewhat unstable golem Toxx and experience a series of unique new events that feature a brand-new toy. What magical marvel has Tixx created for the sylvari?

December 16 10:00 AM PST (19:00 GMT+1)
Divinity’s Reach
Tixx’s airship floats above the spires of the Krytan capital on the second stage of his Wintersday tour. Board Tixx’s floating workshop and play brand-new events based on the fancy new toy he’s made just for the noble humans.

December 17 10:00 AM PST (19:00 GMT+1)
Black Citadel
Even the charr love Wintersday in their own ferocious way. The Wondrous Workshop of Toymaker Tixx hovers in the smoky skies over the Black Citadel for one day only. Climb aboard to see what kind of toy Tixx and his Funwerks Krewe have crafted for the charr.

December 18 10:00 AM PST (19:00 GMT+1)
Hoelbrak
The norn welcome the toymaker’s airship for its brief visit to the great lodge of Hoelbrak. What toy is cute and tough enough to endure the hearty norn? Enter Tixx’s workshop and find out!

December 19 10:00 AM PST (19:00 GMT+1)
Rata Sum
Tixx returns to his home turf on the penultimate stop of his Wintersday tour. This year he’s created a unique toy that only an asura could love. Board his floating workshop for more toy-centric events and holiday havoc!

December 20 10:00 AM PST (19:00 GMT+1) until January 3, 2013
Lion’s Arch
Toymaker Tixx finally arrives at Lion’s Arch! As the Wintersday guest of honor, Tixx and his workshop will remain in Lion’s Arch for the rest of the holiday. He has a special Wintersday gift for everyone who visits him while he’s in Lion’s Arch. So, stop by, play through all the previous toy events inside the workshop, or try out the new Toypocalypse event!

Toypocalypse
The toys in Tixx’s workshop have gone haywire! They’re trying to take over the gigantic toymaking machine in the center of the workshop, and if they succeed, Wintersday will be ruined! Defend Tixx’s present-delivering dolyaks and the gigantic toy-making machine from waves of maniacal toys in these challenging and fun events.

Had het op reddit al gelezen. (kan op werk niet op gw2.com en op dit forum)
Wel mooi dat je alle events nog een keer kan doen als Tixx in LA is.
