    Was the best GW1 event.

    I still hoard my candy canes in GW1. The other day my husband wanted a CC and I hesitated wasting it on him. Too valuable.

    One of my favorite holiday events (although really, almost all of the events ArenaNet did for GW1 were great).

    Can't wait. Starts right off my last workday for this year! Also longer specials event mean also more time to fix bugs which will eventually be happening (a very positive thing from a programmer's POV!).

    Also, PVP snowball fights are going be a living hell if they are like the food fight from Halloween. :<

    I didn't do much food fighting during Halloween...but it seems to me a simple solution to total chaos (if that's what the food fight was) is make it require being in a (readily-available) costume/town clothes (make it so you need mittens/winter coat or something) to participate (both attacking and being attacked). Or do like GW1 and have a snowball fight arena...better yet, do both, so you can have a free-for-all(-participating) globally, and a PvP/rated snowball fight arena.

    I wonder how different it will be. I mean the gods are basically gone right? So there won't be the Grenth versus Dwayna battle.

    At the food tables? I thought that was food fight. I just sorta spammed F for a few minutes. I didn't really understand what was happening...

    That was just something the Mad King outfit could spawn... it was part of the costume brawl essentially what the witch and mad king costumes did was they had an ability that brought people into the brawl (mad kings was a food fighting table witch was a cauldron that turned you into an animal) making it so people who -didn't/don't- have costumes to be able to participate, however they'd be at a disadvantage due to the costume provided by the cauldron being temporary thus leaving them open for a bit when it ends and then the food table not even giving you a costume (granted you become immune to costume brawl damage and can dish out a lot of it while using it)

    I played A LOT of costume brawl..... kinda bad that majority of my Halloween experience was running around the town as a witch throwing bats at people xD

    Very excited, looks like there will be a lot more days to play this one and I cannot wait to see what else they will be adding. Also want another wallpaper for my screen saver, guess the toy ship will have to do before they release an official one!

    Also another note if you look on that page you can also see "January 2013 Coming Soon" so looks like they're going to try and keep up with the monthly updates which is very exciting!
    Excited

    You're a mean one... Mr. Grenth.

    I wonder if we see something more about the Human Gods. Since the Avatar of Dwayna and Grenth always had a little "showdown".

    I doubt it, because a major theme of GW2 (both readily apparent and stated by the devs) is the absence of the human gods, since apparently around the time of Nightfall/shortly thereafter. I would highly doubt they would so quickly reintroduce them (I believe one of the devs said it's unlikely we'll ever see them, and particularly in the near future), though it might be interesting if they slowly bring them back over the course of the game -- or have those 2 reappear suddenly during a (future) wintersday.

    False, avatar of Dwayna and Grenth are already in game, go to either of their shrines an /kneel and one of their avatars will appear that you can talk to, it would not surprise me if the avatars (which already have models) will show up.

    This will be my first ever Winters Day. Nice to see them expanding on the event period tho. Also that Airship/golem blimp looks amazing. I hope we can go inside it for like a dungeon or somthing.
