Visiting the media section of the official Guild Wars 2 site and looking in videos, shows us something interesting:
A private video entitled Guild Wars 2 Wintersday: The Wondrous Workshop of Toymaker Tixx!
This can only mean we're about to get information soon, information that will spark a new speculation wave. The fact that the focus is on a toymaker really opens up the possibilities we've discussed in previous threads about toy recipes being the focus instead of cooking recipes.
I still wouldn't rule cooking out myself. I'm certain, whatever the main focus of the event, there will be a multitude of crafting recipes in nearly all disciplines.
What I like is the unknown element of toys. In our eyes 'toy' covers quite a broad range. I wonder what Tyria equivalents the developers have conjured up.
If this video goes live soon (I imagine it will be by the end of today - Arenanet time) we'll hopefully have more to discuss! Get your speculating goggles on.
PS Who else is hoping for a new jumping puzzle? Part of me wants it, part of me doesn't! :)
