  • Guest

    How do you combine six different items in the forge?

    • Guest

      Ah, nevermind that. My bad.

  • Sime

    Aww, these mini´s are so cute<3 😀 My ingame wallet will cry… 😀

  • Elena Callegari

    i don’t want a beagle! i want a border collie!

  • Falla

    Oh no, they know how to get me <3

    How do I get these Ugly Wool things?

    • Lord

      During Wintersday Event, these Ugly Wool Things are given as drop or in the Wintersday Gift.

      • Milk Banano

        How do you know? o.O

        • Jester

          because they were last year? i still have stacks of them in my bank

          • Milk Banano

            Ah well, my bad, I thought Falla would make an ironic joke like “ugly wool things” = the furry Wintersday minis. 😉
            I got pretty much Wintersday materials from last year too, I hope it was worth to block all these bankslots for a whole year. >:O

    • Can buy them on the trading post

  • Milk Banano

    Dulfy, do you really buy all these gem-contents to show it to us or is there a way to preview items ingame? Btw, I don’t know recognize this arctic map where you make your fotos usually. Is it a regular Kodan temple? Thanks in advance and for this great website of course. ^^

    Btw, the Mini Fawn and the Mini-Dolyak are supercute, but I wish I wouldn’t have to buy the package two times to keep them all, 1000gems is just not worth it, especially because trading gems for gold to close the gap is way to expensive atm. (100 gems cost about 9 gold now.)

    • Sime

      Yeah, it is a pity that this minis can´t be traded on TP :/

    • I buy all of them, the arctic map is just inside storymode HOTW dungeon in frostgorge sound

  • That looks nothing like a Fox 🙁 more like a white Corgi

    • Thayet

      It actually does, it’s just a bit stylized.

      What irks me more is, what’s wrong with their front legs? That looks a bit off.

      • Milk Banano

        Omg put quickly that fluffy thing away, it’s so damn ultra … cuuuuuute Ö_Ö <3<3<3

        • Crosknight

          would defently play my ranger more if there were fox pets.
          seriously WHY NO FOX PETS?!?! =(

          • Milk Banano

            I think because they are so small and wouldn’t fight humans except if they got sick by rabies, on the other hand I wouldn’t expect such little birds, that we already got, as pets, too. So yeah, why not? 😉

            • Crosknight

              dont forget rangers have pigs as pets also ._.

      • Ah, awesome 🙂

        I’m still hoping for a proper looking Vulpes vulpes!

  • Milk Banano

    Btw, I am a bit disappointed that we don’t get these hats for the Winterday-finale for free (or as achievement reward), like we did in GW1 as I was originally thinking after the preview.

    Well, let’s wait what we get as achievement reward, storywise Grenth and Dwayna aren’t really available to gift us their hats. 😉

  • Lord

    Do we know if players who bought gems in the previous month will get a mini set for free ?

    • Milk Banano

      Yeah at they said clearly December only. So probably not. :/

      • Lord

        I was talking about the 3 wintersday minipet set, not M. Sparkles.
        I was wondering if Anet offered a free Wintersday set for those who bought gems in the previous months as they have done it before (kite, and halloween mini pets if I remembered well).
        But there is no IG mail about this, so I think they won’t do it

  • dolyak <3

  • Amanda

    That Dolyak is so cute <3

    • Lord

      yes, and with th mini dolyak from WvW season 1, we have a lovely family 😉

  • Mike

    Dulfy – what armor are you wearing here? I really like the pants and chest piece you use!

    • Nipenthis

      I think the pants is from the AC set and the chest piece is bought from WvW vendors, but I might be wrong

  • jason wolcott

    are we getting an actual update preview page today at this is as late as i can remember it ever coming out on the tuesday before an update? is that content still under embargo dulfy?

    • It should, not sure why there is a delay.

      • jason wolcott

        thanks. i just find it weird that not only is the official preview page not up, but no sites are carrying any info beyond the mini and hat preview.

  • Jester

    my god, the horns on that char helm! O.O

  • wOt

    gem wars ftw

  • Ares Zax

    OMG, the new minis! O.o Cuteness overload! <3

    Also, Charr Stag Helm = Moose Helm. XD

  • tinnic

    I really want the minis but its a bit pointless since I don’t use the minis I do have. Keep forgetting to get them out even when they are in my backpack! T.T

  • The Spirit Molecule

    LOL that first picture of a charr looks so funny

  • Jen

    wow, best looking minis thus far. the little fawn and dolyak are too cute!
