In the spirit of how we celebrate Christmas in Germany, this giveaway’s drawing will take place on the evening of December 24! That’s right. We get the presents on Heiligabend (“holy evening”) and do not have to wait for the night to be over. :D Traditionally, we also don’t have a Santa Claus that brings us the presents but the “Christkind” (“Christ Child”). But that has nothing to do with Guild Wars, I just wanted to add a bit of information here. ;)
We do not know yet when exactly we can do the drawing as we’ll celebrate the evening with my family and, of course, they come first. But usually that doesn’t last too long (if my nephews are there, it’ll be over rather early as they’re still very young and need sleep).
But that’s all beside the point, isn’t it? The big question is: What will you be able to win in this giveaway?
Please read the full post before commenting. :)
Guild Wars “Mini”-Bundle
- 20 minis including a rare and a unique one
- 3 unopened birthday presents
- 1 Monumental Tapestry
- 50 platinum
- 1 Everlasting Tonic
- Wintergreen Scythe
Now let’s see how many Hall of Monuments points you could get with this package. For our calculations, we will once again assume you do not have anything in the respective HoM area yet.
This is what your Hall of Monuments will look like after receiving our bundle and putting everything on display.
This bundle contains only minis. But you’ll get at least 20 of them! One is a green one and one is a gold one which are both worth 1 point each. Any mini gets you 1 point. 20 gets you another 2 points. So all together, this bundle will give you 5 points if you don’t have any minis yet. And there’ll be 3 unopened birthday presents which can contain more minis that you haven’t displayed yet which will bring you closer to 30 minis.
The platinum can help you buy more items like miniatures (as always our word of warning: only accept miniatures that are not yet dedicated in the Hall of Monuments as you won’t be able to place those!), hero armor items, etc. The Everlasting Tonic and the Wintergreen Scythe are just flavour items and will not give any points.
- 30 unidentified dyes
- 30 trick-or-treat bags
- 1 Mini Krait Slaver
- 1 Mini Polar Bear
Yeah, you read that correctly: For the Christmas giveaway, we have collected 10 extra bags and 10 extra dyes! :) We also figured that the little polar bear is the perfect mini for this time of the year.
Guild Wars 2 In-Game T-Shirt Code
