I had two characters (one from each account) in the same district on the same spot (EU-Russia-1) and only one of them received the Snow Crest. Been AFK since before midnight my local time on both accounts, so have gone through two rounds on them, and still nothing. [[User:HanokOdbrook|HanokOdbrook]] 12:32, January 1, 2010 (UTC)

typo detected ... January 2, 2010 is Saturday, not Friday. 76.230.131.112 21:54, December 18, 2009 (UTC)

Then fix it :P —Dr Ishmael Diablo the chicken.gif 22:17, December 18, 2009 (UTC)

Rift Warden?

Where the F is the Rift Warden? I don't see him in Kamadan.--99.225.28.182 22:46, December 18, 2009 (UTC)

They'll appear on Monday. —Dr Ishmael Diablo the chicken.gif 22:57, December 18, 2009 (UTC)
Geez, it's that time of year again? Time to buckle down for some more attempts at Polar bear farming.Entrea SumataeEntrea [Talk] 23:52, December 18, 2009 (UTC)
They are here now, happy farming everyone. Try to keep count of how many runs u did :P Lยкץ๒๏ץ talk 21:45, December 19, 2009 (UTC)

Factions

Why doesn't factions have the event yet? what's wrong? Jedibob5 19:06, December 18, 2009 (UTC)

Um, because it doesn't? Prophecies/Nightfall get Halloween and Wintersday, Factions gets Canthan New Year and Dragon Festival. —Dr Ishmael Diablo the chicken.gif 19:18, December 18, 2009 (UTC)
The continent of Tyria is roughly equivalent to Europe and celebrates the more Western holidays. Cantha is effectively the Asia of Guild Wars and celebrates holidays that are more closely related to those of Eastern cultures. Don't ask how Elona has the same holidays as Tyria. Probably because it would have been too convoluted to have another set of holidays to keep up with throughout the year, so it was just easier to synchronize it with Tyria. SlothIncarnate 14:53, December 19, 2009 (UTC)
Not to mention Tyria and Elona are on the exact same continent, one just being south of the other. The two have always been much more closely linked. It makes no less sense for Tyrians and Elonans to celebrate the same holidays as it does for Ascalons and Krytans to celebrate the same holidays. --76.113.200.14 01:23, December 27, 2009 (UTC)

Costumes

With the recent introduction of costumes does anyone think is it possible that we could see full costumes replacing the festival hats in events? SlothIncarnate 14:57, December 19, 2009 (UTC)

Possible, but I doubt it. If people can get full costumes for free, they'll be less likely to want the ones that aren't free, and that would reduce Anet's cash flow. —Dr Ishmael Diablo the chicken.gif 16:35, December 19, 2009 (UTC)
Unless the ones that ARE free, are bullshit ones like Santa Claus suits, Grentch suits etc. At least the Grenth's and Dwayna's costumes look good. --Naoroji 16:38, December 19, 2009 (UTC)
any predictions on costumes for the other gods? maybe Melandru in the spring time. Bottle130 11:21, December 20, 2009 (UTC)
That would have to be free, no one would pay to have wooden tits strapped to their body.--99.225.28.182 19:56, December 21, 2009 (UTC)
Well apparently we get hats again this year, but they don't look too bad. There's a picture up on the German wiki page here. --82.71.41.74 19:02, December 27, 2009 (UTC)
More female love. Hmm... And I think of all things, we will get new holiday hats and celestial minis until all GW1 servers are completely closed, which I don't see happening anytime soon. RoseOfKali RoseOfKaliSIG.png 19:35, December 27, 2009 (UTC)

CC shards?

Will we be able to trade in CC shards for presents at some point? The preceding unsigned comment was added by 128.101.182.153 (contribs) .

Wintersday Gift Givers are in LA and Kamadan, as well as the Dwayna Vs Grenth outpost. —Dr Ishmael Diablo the chicken.gif 14:52, December 22, 2009 (UTC)
First I'm getting that übercool Candy Cane Longbow for pulling. But what to do with the rest? Save till you can bet on Grenth or Dwayna or just trade for gifts? Fleshcrawler Soban 15:29, December 22, 2009 (UTC)
You only need a few CCS to play Nine Rings (Wintersday). Dwayna's/Grenth's points are based on how many CCS are "bet" in the game, which is 1 per character per round, not how many the characters have in their inventories. And no matter which circle you stand in, you will at least break even, on average. So yeah, keep a few for the finale, but go ahead and trade the rest for gifts. —Dr Ishmael Diablo the chicken.gif 15:40, December 22, 2009 (UTC)
Iirc, there are 15 game rounds. Considering you win some shards back during the game, you can probably get away with 6 or 7 at start and still get through all 15 rounds, unless you hit a really bad losing streak. RoseOfKali RoseOfKaliSIG.png 19:39, December 27, 2009 (UTC)

Presents after leaving the area?

Lies... O_o RoseOfKali RoseOfKaliSIG.png 09:30, January 1, 2010 (UTC)

Fixed then.--Łô√ë Roar.îğá†ħŕášħ is hosting a Card Creation Contest! 09:40, January 1, 2010 (UTC)

Mask Bug

Stupid bug. Every one I spoke didn't get a grenth head in LA, In EU dstr. and so did I. It sucks. More have the same problem? -- F1Sig.png † F1© Talk 11:34, January 1, 2010 (UTC)

I got a Grenth in LA En-5 at 8:01, no dwayna in En-8 at 11:01 RandomTime 11:37, January 1, 2010 (UTC)
(EC) Oh, yeah. I've had two fails trying to get Grenth's hat so far... now 2 and a half more hours to wait. Glad I'm afking and working on something else right now, or else I'd be more than just mildly annoyed. But yeah, lots of problems so far. Nwash User-Nwash-Eyes.png 11:38, January 1, 2010 (UTC)
It seems loads of people didn't get a hat the second time. No one I talked to got a hat. I was in Am dis 33 LA.--TalkpageEl_Nazgir 11:39, January 1, 2010 (UTC)
I did get Dwayna's during the first event. It does seem like more people are reporting problems with Grenth's, so maybe the whole exploding present thing is exacerbating whatever's causing this. Maybe.
Or it just means more people start with Dwayna first, and the problems cropped up halfway through the first event. >.> Nwash User-Nwash-Eyes.png 11:45, January 1, 2010 (UTC)
Checked all Districts of both cities...I only talked to two people who got hats. Somewhat depressing that A-Net would let this slide. Everyone is hoping for new build or redux. I guess we'll just have to find out. Middleschoo2 11:50 January 1, 2010
Even better... just have an NPC I can turn in 250 shards to and pick which hat I want/need/etc... Nova-exarch 11:55, January 1, 2010 (UTC)

I had two characters (one from each account) in the same district on the same spot (EU-Russia-1-Kamadan) and only one of them received the Snow Crest. Been AFK since before midnight my local time on both accounts, so have gone through two rounds on them, and still nothing. HanokOdbrook 12:32, January 1, 2010 (UTC)
