It’s the most wonderful time of the year.
Yes boys and girls, it’s Wintersday in guild wars. What that means is tons of cheer, presents, weird hats, Divine rivalrly, and GOLD, GOLD, GOLD.
This is the best time for farmers / VQ to make use of all those collector items that drop while out doing your thing in the wild digital yonder, driving up the prices of otherwise vendor trash. Special NPC’s appear during the holiday and will trade highly coveted items for some of these common drops.
For a full list of what items are tradable, check out the guildwars wiki page.
EZ Moad Farming:
Decayed Orr Emblems
-55 monks who farm the hot springs should be hoarding these!
-Juvenile Termite Legs
-Silver Bullion Coins
All can be farmed easily by clearing newbie island (Istan) a few times. Simple to solo in normal mode, worth soloing in HM as well.
More hardcore holiday presents can be traded for valued collector items like destroyer cores. Whether or not you wanna do this is up to you. I personally don’t think it’s worth it, but to each his own.
So if you find yourself having some downtime between throwing snowballs and enjoying the decorations, take an hour or two to add some extra income to your pocket.
