Guild Wars 2’s Wintersday 2022 returns with plenty of gifts

Guild Wars 2 Wintersday 2021

Guild Wars 2’s Wintersday 2022 is back next week, beginning on Dec. 13 and running through most of the month. The date will run until Jan. 3, giving players approximately three weeks to run through the various daily events and achievements. Each day, you get various achievements and rewards for completing certain tasks.

Players will also be able to get their hands on unique Black Lion items in next week’s patch. There are a few new premium items, such as the Snow Garden weapon collection.

One of the first things you should do each day is to give out Wrapped Gifts. Speak with the Charity Corps Seraph in the Crown Pavilion to purchase Rolls of Wrapping Paper. These rolls can be combined with various items earned from Wintersday activities to create Wrapped Gifts. The basic premise is that you take Wrapped Gifts and deliver them to orphans around Divinity’s Reach. This is actually one of the best ways to farm Karma in the game, as you can get more than 100,000 Karma per day by farming the runs for presents to orphans. Keep reading to find more out about the events during this month of holiday cheer.
