Guild Wars Wintersday 2008

Second, in my humble opinion, only to the Guild Wars Halloween event is Guild Wars Wintersday.   It starts this year on December 19th, and it ends next year on January 5th.  It’s a great event with new items, Wintersday quests, and of course, Dwayna Vs Grenth snowball PvP.

The Guild Wars Live Team has been pumping out content and updates and a terrific speed, but even after their megalithic updates from November, they continue to impress with all the new goodies coming to Wintersday 2008.  This year the Eye of the North will be decorated in Wintersday tradition, and one of the Ebon Vanguard’s soliders will have a new quest line to participate in.

Hopefully Guild Wars 2 news is just around the corner, but for now, ArenaNet keeps giving plenty of good reasons to return to the original Guild Wars.

You’ll shoot your eye out, kid.

  1. Guild Wars 2 seems to be late 2009, early 2010 judging from the NCSoft comments on the latest earnings call.

    Nevertheless, Guild Wars do provide some excellent gameplay options, including such events.

  2. Yeah, I just listened to it. I am surprised that Aion world launch is going to be late ’09 now. However, NCSoft seems to be happy that Aion does not seem to be cannibalizing the other big Korean games… so hopefully they will not be adverse to overlapping marketing/release. Thanks for the pointer to the conference call. Was interesting…

  3. I love Wintersday! It was always difficult to decide whether to allocate my time to snowball arena (fun arena-based PvP done right) or grinding candy canes to obtain items from the event to sell later at super inflated prices.
