Wintersday in July 2011
Join us for Wintersday in July!
Looking for a midsummer cure for the too-much-sun blues? Jump into our Wintersday in July celebration! The party starts at noon Pacific on Friday, July 15 and lasts until 11:59 PM Pacific on Sunday, July 17.
Anyone feeling festive and feisty will want to test their might in the Snowball Arena. This year holds a special treat: players can wear their favorite costumes and festival hats into the fray. Will you bring a seasonally-appropriate Freezie Crown or don a Lunatic Court Helm to keep you warm? Once you have picked your outfit, talk to a Wintersday Priest in Ascalon City, Droknar's Forge, the Great Temple of Balthazar, Kamadan, or Lion's Arch to be carted into combat.
This festival packs a season's worth of frosty fun into one weekend. Pull out your flannel, start building your ice fort, and join us for Wintersday in July!
In addition to the competition in Snowball Arena, you'll have the chance to collect a variety of seasonal treats by defeating monsters across the world. Some of the special items you might find during the weekend event are:
|Frosty Tonic: Don't just build a snowman, be a snowman!|
|Mischievous Tonic: Get in touch with your inner grentch by taking on the outer appearance of one.|
|Snowman Summoner: Need an instant snowman? This gift is for you.|
|Eggnog: Thick, rich, and delicious, it's the season's staple drink.|
|Fruitcake: Another essential holiday treat that's sure to put a spring in your step.|
