Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The official Guild Wars website says that it's best to keep your candy cane shards until the finale to decide the Winner, Dwayna or Grenth.
Historical note.png Historical note: In early Wintersday events, there were two types of Shards: those that dropped from foes were salvageable; those that came from Wintersday Gifts were not. The two types did not stack
Historical note.png Historical note: At one time, weapons could be traded at one of the Candysmiths, and Shields and Focus, at Candysmith Marley.
