Guild Wars 2 unveils new Wintersday items
December has come and that means ArenaNet has stocked up the Guild Wars 2 Gem store with fancy new Wintersday items.
If you're looking to spend some of your holiday cash, consider the literally sharp new Stag Helm or fashionable Grenth Hood.
For pet lovers, there are new Wintersday minis to collect and cuddle with during Tyria's cold winter season. There's the adorable Mini Puppy, precious Faun, and wily Arctic Fox Kit. These pets can be unlocked through the Wintersday Minis 3-Pack item. Also, be sure to gather up some Ugly Wool Sweaters and mix with the new Wintersday mini threesome to create the lovely Mini Dolyak Calf.
With new items coming in the MMO cash shop has become just a wee bit cluittered, so items such as the Kasmeer’s Staff, Marjory’s Axe and Dagger, and the infinite Dreamcleaver Logging Axe will all be phased out starting next week.
If the charms of these helms and minis aren't enough to persuade you to spend, then maybe the generous Black Lion Wintersday rewards event will.
Until December 31, players who purchase gems, the official cash shop currency for the free online rpg, can earn special gifts like a Green Quaggan Backpack (shown in this post's thumbnail photo) or the elusive Mini Mr. Sparkles.
The Green Quaggan Backpack requires a purchase of 800 gems before December ends while the exclusive Green Quaggan Backpack + Mini Mr. Sparkles item combo reward demands a purchase of 4,000 gems. These rewards will be unlocked come January.
