Wintersday, the Guild Wars in-game winter celebration of the rivalry between Grenth, the god of death and cold and Dwayna, the goddess of life and air, is due to begin soon. I loved the Wintersday celebrations last year; it was my first true taste of a Guild Wars in-game event.
A few posts ago, I said I would be cutting back on World of Warcraft, and I have done so. However, now that Wintersday is coming up in Guild Wars, I am actually going to pretty much stop playing WOW until the festivities are over. I may check in to sell some stuff on the Auction House when the Auctioneer add-on is has been fixed, but I doubt I will make any time to do anything else.
My Warlock is well and truly stagnant at the moment, at level 34.5 or so. I doubt that I will be able to reach 40 and get my Felsteed before the Wintersday events begin, so there’s little point in trying to grind through quests I dislike and to look for a group for Gnomeregan using the clunky LFG interface.
What’s that? World of Warcraft has winter events, quests, items, and festivities, as well? Yeah. Don’t care. Let’s go Grenth!
