Guild Wars 2 is just days away from the start of Wintersday festivities, which means it's time to start getting excited! Toymaker Tixx and his technomagical workshop will be touring Tyria to spread joy and good cheer. Skip below the cut to view the teaser video for the Wintersday patch.

Wintersday isn't just bringing goodies for PvE lovers, however: a recent forum post talked about some of the changes that are coming to WvW. Players will get more advanced notification of new builds. Hitting Alt+F4 or some other quick escape while in a sticky WvW situation will result in instant character death and loot and XP for the attacking party. Walls and gates won't be instanty repaired anymore but will instead need to be built up a bit before they start providing defense. Finally, "Breakout events" will be added to the game to help teams that have no defensive structures. A much larger WvW update will be delivered in February.
