Guild Wars 2 : Wintersday Keeps On Wintering

Wintersday is in full swing in Guild Wars 2 and players are having a great time participating in all the activities that ArenaNet has provided for players. In today’s column, we ruminate a bit more on Wintersday and what we think. Read on and then leave your ideas in the comments.
Each day this past week ArenaNet threw in a new part to the dungeon giving players a chance to experience something different each time.  For completing the dungeon players receives the parts to make a new toy themed mini pet.  Each possible mini pet is a toy form of some of our favorite creatures in Tyria, from stuffed animal griffins to princess dolls.  Of course to get all the parts to make one of these toys, players will need to complete the dungeon a few times, or trade for the parts with their hard earned gold.

The first zone to be revealed is the Mountain of Bells: a mystical place which is the centre of many eerie tales and rumours. Only a brave few dare to enter this remote region. Legends say that during the War of 1001 Nights, the army of the caliph was frozen by a mighty spell of the evil Nadir into the stone formations which visually mark the region. The hollow, eerie sound of bells calls to mind their forgotten souls.

Along with experience points, the various zone quests can also earn players achievements, reputation, or special items and will teach them more about the background story of Nadirim. In the Mountain of Bells zone, which can be reached after around 30 hours of game play, players must find the source of the mysterious sound of bells, which holds an important revelation.
