Leaving from Kamadan, go into the Plains of Jarin and join the three waiting Humbugs. Follow the green arrow to each Freezie Wannabe and kill them. After you killed three of them, map back to Kamadan and talk to Elder Skruuj for your reward.
- In addition to the NPCs normally encountered in the Plains of Jarin
- 2 (20) Istani Child

- 12 (24) Freezie Wannabe
- "Grenth is infuriated by last years Wintersday defeat. We must do whatever it takes to ensure a victory for His Moodiness and teach everyone that Wintersday is not to be taken lightly. Or joyfully."
- "A few Istani kids have been spreading foolish tales of a great snowman named Freezie being built in Tyria. What's even worse is that they are determined to make an even grander snowman of their own. We need to teach these sniveling snow brats that Wintersday is no time for such trifling matters, but a grim season of reflection and self-loathing. Go to the Plains of Jarin and rid us of this abominable snowman! I'll provide you with some Humbugs to ensure you do the job with extreme prejudice. Well, what are you waiting for? Get smashing!
- Istani Child: "Hey, it took me all day to make him. Waaaaaaa!!!"
- Istani Child: "Oh, what a cruel world!"
- Istani Child: "What did he ever do you?" [sic]
- Istani Child: "My snowman! Dwayna, how could you let this happen?"
- Istani Child: "Son of a Grentch must pay!"
- Istani Child: "You complete and total buttface! You ruined my snowman!"
- "Did the children cry and whine? They'll get over it. This is the only way they'll learn that Wintersday is a serious time of the year, not one for mirth and merriment. Grenth is most pleased with your performance but our work has just begun. Speak to me again when you are ready to spread the jeer."
- The Humbug are strong allies, making this quest a good way to farm experience for characters that just started Nightfall, notably to meet the level requirements of the quests Honing your Skills, The Honorable General and to a lesser extent The Time is Nigh.
- This quest was introduced in Wintersday 2006.
- Prior to Wintersday 2010, this quest awarded 5 Candy Cane Shards instead of Wintersday Gifts.
