GW2 Warming Grawnk’s Heart Wintersday Guide

A guide to the newly introduced time gated mission Warming Grawnk’s Heart with Winterday 2014.

Seimur Oxbone’s Location

Depending on the day you are doing this, Seimur could be in several locations. Just ask Grawnk/Orphan and they will tell you which racial city he is likely in.

Black Citadel

If he is in Black Citadel, he will be near the Mustering Ground Waypoint.

gw2-warming-grawnks-heart-4

The Grove

His new location in the Grove is on the bottom level of The Grove, next to Ronan’s Waypoint. Select the bottom level of the map and then teleport then there to check if you have the waypoint unlocked. If not just keep going down to the very bottom level.

Divinity’s Reach

if Seimur is in Divinity’s Reach, he will be near the Commons Waypoint

Day 1

Open your mail and you should see a new one from Orphan Laine. The mail will direct you to your home instance (i..e for humans it is Salma District of Divinity’s Reach).

gw2-warming-grawnk's-heart

Once you are inside your home instance, talk to Grawnk and he will tell you to find Seimur Oxbone. Read the hint to figure out which racial city he is in.

gw2-warming-grawnk's-heart-2gw2-warming-grawnk's-heart-3

Find Seimur in whichever city he is in (see above).  Ask him for something to help with the grawl problem and he will allow you to purchase his Bowl of Bloodstone Broth for 1 Tiny Snowflake which you can get from the TP or from Wintersday Gifts.

gw2-warming-grawnk's-heart-5

Return to your home instance and hand the broth to Grawnk. He will tell you to return tomorrow.

gw2-warming-grawnk's-heart-6

Check back at the daily reset.

Day 2

After the daily reset, head straight to Ascallion Waypoint in Harathi Hinterlands. You will need to access the Renowned Heart vendor there that sells the Masterwork or Fine version of Shiny Frying Pan.

gw2-shiny-frying-pan-2gw2-shiny-frying-pan

Purchase this pan and head back to Seimur Oxbone. Tell him that the Grawl is still there and he will sell you Cup of Bloodstone Soup in exchange for Shiny Frying Pan (he has two tabs, one for masterwork and one for fine version).

gw2-cup-of-bloodstone-soup-2gw2-cup-of-bloodstone-soup

Go back to your home instance, talk to Grawnk again to give the soup to him. He will tell you to come tomorrow.

gw2-warming-grawnk's-heart-7

Check back at the daily reset

Day 3

Seimur Oxbone now wants a Superior Sigil of Mischief for his next powerful meal, the Chalice of Bloodstone Chili. This sigil can be found inside Giant Wintersday Gifts or be purchased on the TP for a few silvers.

gw2-superior-sigil-of-mischief-2gw2-superior-sigil-of-mischief

Return to Grawnk after you are done to hand him his last meal. This will grant you an achievement and a new collection starter, Holiday Display Case.

gw2-grawnk-munch

Consuming the Holiday Display Case unlocks a new collection For the Children

gw2-for-the-children-collection

For the Children Collection

The items you need acquire are found in jumping puzzle chests or hidden chests in the appropriate maps all over.The jumping puzzle listed below are just examples. Other jumping puzzles or hidden chests of the same racial chest will also drop them.

Each jumping puzzle will give you a Mysterious Grubby Package, which has a high chance to drop the item for the collection (not 100%). You must have the collection unlocked with the Holiday Display Case or the Mysterious Grubby Package won’t give you the item.

  • visher

    You can actually go to home instance of any race. At first i went to asuran homeinst with a sylvari character, and after i got Bloodstone Broth – i went straight into charr homeinst. Troll and boy npcs are EVERYWHERE! :-0

    >time gated mission
    So, is it strictly everyday log-to-feed-troll-whatever mission or i can miss a day or few? 😉

    • You can miss days in between without issues

      • Kate O-o

        Define without issues. I missed day one, did it tonight (post reset), and it won’t let me do day 2 until tomorrow.

        • Bryan Lykins

          Simply put, you can advance it once per day. Missing a day doesn’t cause any issues, but it means that you will complete the entire arch 1 day later than if you didn’t miss a day.

          • nicoper

            But how many days are there in the arch? I also started one day late due to not knowing it was time-gated, will I be able to actually complete the whole thing?

            • Bryan Lykins

              Currently unknown. If I were to guess I’d so 5 minimum and 10 max so they are sure most people have time to get it.

              • Fatal Zephyr

                There is only three (minimum); I have fully completed it (Received and used the gift of magnanimity AND gotten the Star of Gratitude). After three days; you complete the time-gated part and then it’s just the JPs to complete the collection.

      • visher

        thanks)

  • Ekl

    So, for the day 2, the cook wants you to bring him a http://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Shiny_Frying_Pan

    • Yup I just updated the page

      • Scolai

        He’ll also take the fine version of the frying pan in his other tab. No need to get the masterwork one.

        • TheManWhoKnewTooLittle

          Confirmed. The second tab on his page has him trading the Fine version (Blue) of the Shiny Frying Pan for the same item as the Masterwork version. Save yourself some Karma by purchasing the Fine version and trading that to him.

  • Ciramorn

    day 3 item is a superior sigil of mischief (the new one from the gifts, can be bought from tp). gets you a chalice of bloodstone chili.

  • Weblawless

    You don’t have to wait until reset to obtain the items from the cook. He asks for a Superior Sigil of Mischief, and hands you “Chalice of Bloodstone Chili”. You just have to wait for daily reset to hand food over to Grawnk.

    • cheese

      Aye, just got round to doing this and spoke to the chef again after leaving instance. Hopefully means tomorrow will be super quick!

      • Ares Zax

        Cheers for the tip. 🙂 Does he ask for anything more after the Sigil?

  • narg

    i think you dont need go to your character home instance, i start in Divinity (as human) and finish in Black citadel, and all works, so i think, you can stay in Black citadel home instance forewer

    btw any1 knows, how long we need feed the troll ?? cuz this christmass event are very lazy work from anet (again), toypokalypse or trixx are fine, but its 2y old content, dolyaks escort moved from LA and shorted to 1/5 of LA track, wtf WHY??? only one things saved anet from my hate, i drop ho ho tron from my second giant gift, so i am fine for this christmass 😀 I really hope anet is working on something BIG (and when i mean big, i mean REALLY BIG)

    • Thanathos

      Troll feeding should last only three days, since everytime you feed him he is losing about 1/3 of his health.

  • Imanrkngel

    Update: The sous-chef Seimur Oxbone is now near Ronan’s waypoint in the Grove.

    • treasure tree hunter

      Day 2: Grove needs the frying pan.
      He moves everyday, but didn’t last night until patch.

    • Updated, he is in between maps at the moment. In some instance still in black citadel, in other instances in the grove.

  • Amadahy

    This is my very first day doing something. My hint doesn’t match the ‘Day 1’ hint you have above. Did I miss a day, and now I’m behind and can’t finish?

    • Amadahy

      nm

  • papanurgle

    can’t give grawnk the day 2 soup..

    • Mutny

      Try waiting until reset.

  • crazycritic21 .

    How many more days is this event?

  • Brightscyde

    If Seimur doesnt appear in your server, I guested to fergusons Crossing server (NA) and he was in the grove for day 2

  • Tevo

    So how do we acquire the thing that eats empyreal star fragments then?

  • Mahkaite

    Finished all three and now he is dead. But i have no idea how to get the toys for the collection.. :<

  • Mea90

    I found the Tinsel Ornament in Iron marches Jumping puzzle and the Purple ball in caledo Forrest Morgan Spire Jumping Puzzle

  • Cu Chaspel

    Dulfy the Rocking Horse Ornament is in the King Jalis’s refuge JP in Snowden drifts,also you can only get the ornament if you have the collection unlocked when I did the JP yesterday I got the box for it and it gave a broken ornament but when I did it today w/ collection unlocked I got the Horse.

  • Ciramorn

    once you give grawnk the last item, the kid will give you clues for where the ornaments are.
    doll: ‘in a golden chest, possibly belonging to lazy rich people’
    tinsel: ‘in an asura chest’
    purple ball: ‘inside a plant’
    rocking horse: ‘inside a knotted chest’
    gold ball: ‘hidden somewhere with corrupted wood and sea smells’ – guessing orr
    green ball: ‘ook-ooh iron’s the clue’ – guessing iron marches

  • Alicia

    What is the Reward for this Collection?

  • Krystal S. S.

    i know a lot of people don’t like jumping puzzles, though i absolutely love them. i’m glad getting the collections lead to more of them.

    do you have to have the Holiday Display Case in order for the items to drop from the chest?

    • Yes you need the holiday display case first for them to drop

      • Krystal S. S.

        thanks sweetie, i ran the first two jumping puzzles without the Holiday Display Case and i was only received * 2 wrecked wintersday ornaments* big hugs, love you lots for the guides. >.< i'll wait until tomorrow then.

  • Ainseland

    Just a heads up

    I did this while giving a port to a friend, apparently you won’t get any of those chest if you haven’t unlock those collection, me and my friend did all of the JP and she only got 2 chest at first we’re struggling if its RNG then we figure it out because she on Day 2 and haven’t done Day 3 to get holiday display case.

    I got all the chest, because i did my day 3 and unlocked the holiday displace case for the collection

  • J Manzon

    wait i haven’t done day 1. I missed it. can i do still do it?

    • Yes, just the chef will be in the grove now

  • Zietlogik

    So the Ornaments are just salvage fodder afterwards?

  • LONGA

    Got the doll from Fawcet JP in Gendarran field

    • LONGA

      Opps Harati hinterlands

  • Fransson

    Why do we murder Grawnk? He seems like any average nanny, he just want some peace and quiet 🙁
    I guess he’ll have to die tough, my bankspace demands it

  • You can also get the ornaments for the last part (the collection) by opening any Race Themed Chest in the world. Like the chest at the archmage in Cursed Shore or the Norn chest in Wayfarer Foothills, without the need for doing JP’s (some people are very bad at them due to crappy pc’s etc) xD

    • TLC

      thanks so much my comps conection is so bad ,jp’s & dungeons are not good places <3

      • lelelel

        then why are you playing? since you seem like can’t do anything in game, no jp no dungeons no wvw, i assume no map farm and pvp as well?

        • TLC

          pve works for me , and i can do some in wvw, and i play because i love the game,even if there are areas i cant play in there is plenty for me to do,and have fun ,might be a bit disappointing for some things , but what game dosent have disappointments? why would you assume no map farming or pvp? , the lag generally only effects jumping for me.

    • Doldol

      Location changed again, it’s Divinity’s Reach now.
      http://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Sous-Chef_Seimur_Oxbone#Locations

  • Dune

    anyone know wher Seimur is today?

    • Dune

      Grawnk says in the great walled city where most humans dwell

      • annn

        He is in the grove still though

        • Dune

          tried can not find him near Ronan Waypoint

          • Dune

            Got it. Thanks annn!

      • Lord

        you mean divinity reach 😉

  • Valento

    Dulfy, I got a Gold Ball Ornament from a basic chest (no JP involved) exactly at Hope Falls POI, under the water.

    • Dinasis

      Happened to me, too. Don’t remember the name, but a commander jumped down from the entrance of the Scavenger’s Chasm jumping puzzle and helped me revive a downed player underwater at the POI. We both got the Gold Ball Ornament after, shouted out about it on map chat, and a bunch of others came and got it, too.

  • Xileer

    BUG!

    If you do a JP partied with a friend who doesn’t have it unlocked, you don’t get the ornament!

  • Lord

    Really funny, Seimur Oxbone is the cook who argues that you can prepare meal with Bloodstone Dust in Echoes of the Past Living Story.
    I did not notice it before, just when I see the meal offered.

    • narg

      and if you remember it completely, norn says, there is no cullinary benefit from eating blood dust foods, well, that grawl died after 3 days, afterall 😀

  • nicoper

    Seimur Oxborne can also be at the Commons Waypoint in Divinity’s Reach

  • Akrost

    You can also get the asura one by doing the Bloodtide Coast jumping puzzle.

  • Surag

    Great revard, Mawdrey III :P. Now we need something hungry for Dragonite Ore.

  • Katu

    Goemm’s Laboratory also drops the Asura one. Definitely drops the Grubby Package.

  • sdfaefasdbab

    Sparking Tinsel Ornament also occurs from chests in the Silverwastes jumping puzzle.

  • has anyone put the Ornament in the forge yet ?

    • asas

      I got a rare earring. worth 40s nothing interesting.

  • Brokko

    Dear Dulfy , the gold ball ornament also drops from the chest within the Grenth Temple. wich is in my opinion easier to get to than the jump puzzles.

  • Semuir Oxbone is now in Divinities Reach right next to Commons WP.

  • Guest

    The star allows for 4 gifts to be made a day, not 1 Dulfy. I just got mine and it made 4 for me.

    • Raivis Carriedo

      i got 5

    • Bajden

      wiki says 4-6

  • TinaH

    I got the Doll Ornament from a dropped chest that came out of the intermediate chest in the grawl fractal. We didn’t let any villagers die and if you don’t have the collection unlocked yet it seems like you get a “Wrecked Wintersday Ornament” Trophy (soulbound, vendor for 1 silver).

  • Kalendraf

    I obtained the items from these locations:
    Doll – Weyandt’s Revenge JP chest
    Rocking Horse – Tribulation Caverns JP chest
    Green Ball – Crimson Plateau JP chest

  • Krystal S. S.

    we get a Christmas Tree for our home >.< love it. sooooo cute….

    • narg

      feed it with 50 emphyreals fragments and tell me, what you will get for it 😉

    • nathanjfealko

      that’s ADORABLE!!!!

  • Raivis Carriedo

    got [Green Ball Ornament] from Behem gauntlet east of [Behem Waypoint] easy jp

  • Adam

    Why is it that I have the collection unlocked and i have never gotten any of the ornaments before but everytime I do a jp i get “wrecked wintersday ornament”??

  • J Manzon

    Will the collection drop even you haven’t finished day 3 yet?

  • Donnie

    hes at commons waypoint sometimes

  • Krakillin

    So what do you do with ornaments after? lol

    • narg

      its accessories with celestials stats

      • asas

        They’re RARE accessories with celestial stats. Ascended acessories probably give you 2-3x better stats.

  • Ivan Truthe

    Found the package for the Sparking Tinsel Ornament from the Grand Chest after the 5th milestone jumping puzzle in Silverwaste. I’m assuming there is probably another/same one after the 8th milestone.

  • Peter Tredici

    Seimur’s also showing up next to the Magicat Court Waypoint in Rata Sum (where I just handed him a tiny snowflake for his delicate girlish hands). Might be best to ask a guildie or the grawl where he is before just porting around now, he’ll probably go everywhere…

  • mewmew

    so the bloodstone soup can kill grawls O_O .. that’s kinda disturbing.

  • Amadahy

    Any easier puzzles for tinsel besides the two listed? I did them for the meta way back when, but they aren’t on my list of ‘puzzles I can do’.

    • Ryu

      “The items you need acquire are found in jumping puzzle chests or hidden
      chests in the appropriate maps all over.The jumping puzzle listed below
      are just examples. Other jumping puzzles or hidden chests of the same
      racial chest will also drop them.”

      in any case many people are giving free ports for the various jps. if you can’t find one on your map put up a lfg stating you need a port

    • narg

      Spekk’s Laboratory is pretty easy if you have good timing for jumps 😀 just there is a little catch, near ends are few platforms, which you must run around by piece of rock near and then jump to end, and defeat low lvl veterans

      crystal caverns are some of hards JP, cuz if you fall, you die :/

  • Chris

    To find Seimur (he’s based on day of the week): http://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Sous-Chef_Seimur_Oxbone#Locations

  • FQ

    Ascallion Waypoint in Harathi Hinterlands, it’s not Ascallion it’s Arcallion Waypoint.

  • Ryu

    This really needs to be reworded:

    Each jumping puzzle will give you a Mysterious Grubby Package, which has
    a high chance to drop the item for the collection (not 100%). You must have the collection unlocked with the Holiday Display Case or the Mysterious Grubby Package won’t give you the item.

    while it is correct, people apparently don’t have very high reading comprehension. A suggested alternate:

    Each jumping puzzle or hidden chest will give you a Mysterious Grubby Package (even if you have not received the Holiday Display Case yet), which has
    a high chance to drop the item for the collection (not 100%). You MUST have the collection unlocked with the Holiday Display Case or the Mysterious Grubby Package when used will just contain a broken ornament that will not count for the collection.

    I did all the jps last night and have the packages that I haven’t opened. After reset teq I’ll get the case and open all the packages to see if they are broken or not. Regardless I think you should also put in a suggestion that people can “park” their characters at the end of jps in advance because some people are panicking and thinking they need to get it all done at once. xD

    • Ryu

      Also I think it would help if you put your personal difficulty rating next to each of the jps you mentioned. That will help people who are new/not as familiar with the jps. c:

      I just opened all the packages that I got last night (the ones I had gotten but had not opened *before* I got the case) now that I DO have the case, and they contain the collection items. 🙂

      • Lexi

        Good idea, but difficulty depends on each person, so that wouldn’t help that much. When my friend and I first started, our first jump puzzle was Spelunker’s Delve. he could do it, and I couldn’t. We got to Morgan’s Spiral/Dark Reverie, and I was doing better than him. So someone who can do Spekk’s Laboratory would say it’s easier than someone who can’t (another one my friend did a lot better than I did).

      • Lya

        Darnit! I’ve been opening these and selling them as junk for the last few months. Annoying, as I’m a hoarder, but looked it up and decided to bin them. I should have done what I do with all the other rubbish I find, and kept them. Now I’d probably have a great start on this collection. Ahh well, nvm. I’ll try some JPs I haven’t done yet, repeat some not-too-hard ones, and look for other chests 😉
        P.S: So glad Dulfy is here: I find wiki for GW2 greatly inferior to the GW wiki 🙁

        • Lya

          P.P.S: Just seen age of this. No matter, still relevant 😉

    • Ryu

      oh and one last thing!!
      probably could mention somewhere that all the collection items are Rare accessories with celestial stats. 🙂

  • Nub

    BTW, You don’t have to finish a jumping puzzle. Find a chest within the map and it will give you a Grubby Package too.

  • upset

    i did both the puzzles for the sparkling tinsel ornament and got nothinh

  • Nexxis

    Seimur can also be in LA near the mystic forge, I was looking at the other places but he wasn’t there.

  • Adhrael

    So if these ornaments don’t have a 100% drop chance does that mean I can just open any chest and do any jumping puzzle and get those ornaments out of those chests? Or do I really have to do those jumping puzzles?

    • Any hidden chests work I believe. Doesn’t have to be jumping puzzle chests

  • Summer

    in LA.

  • Norton Norton

    so all i need is the gold ornament but all of my jp chest have been opened already and i didn’t open them. what are we supposed to do because this is starting to piss me off. all jp’s have no chests

  • Nathan M

    Saturday 21st Dec the Sous Chef is in Butchers Block (Diessa Plateau, NW corner of map, he is actually just south of the vista in the village).

  • Nathan M

    Its also worth noting that the original orphan letter was being used by ppl in wvw to remain invunerable (while reading it) and capturing objectives – so its been disabled (you get the message, “this content has been temporarily disabled please try back later” when reading it now). You DONT need to read the letter to do this quest – just go to your home instance, the orphan and grawk will be there with massive candy icons on their heads!

  • Rowan

    Hmm… is there any lowbie alternative to the Golden Ball? Every other ornament has a “normal” option and a low-level option for the jumping puzzles. It certainly seems like this collection was designed for all players and levels to participate, as jumping puzzles mostly just take time and jump skill, not fighting ability. Are there other, lower-level areas that might have Orrian-style chests?

  • willwheels68

    Today’s comment refers to “meats and cheese at a charr party with booze,” which puts Seimur at the Butcher Block waypoint in Diessa Plateau for Meatoberfest.

  • Voltaire

    I just received the Sparkling Tinsel Ornament (Asura variant) from the Vizier’s Tower. Stranger yet, following that, I went to the Buried Archives jumping puzzle and found I couldn’t open the end chest. As I haven’t been on that map in months, I’m wondering if those two puzzle chests somehow share a lockout????

  • narg

    i got Rocking Horse from Kings Jalis’s Refuge, its looks, like you need do just each racial JP and got items for achi ..

  • Darkever

    A small update: you can also get the Golden Ball from the chest inside the Royal Tombs in Cursed Shore, after defeating the Risen King in Loana chain. I missed only that piece and was on my way for the jumping puzzle… but I found it before! 😉

  • LONGA

  • Geekfox

    Golden Ball Ornament can also drop from Orrian Chests outside the JP. I got mine without entering any Orr JP.

  • Arutha

    Any idea if this collection will be doable after the end of winter festival? I see the achievement will probably be gone so you can’t get the collection unlocked, but will the jumping puzzle reward bags be gone after the month?

  • Guest

    Seimur was just found in Hoelbrak today, at the Upper Balcony Waypoint

  • Sahara

    Seimur was just found in Hoelbrak today – at the Upper Balcony Waypoint

  • Lord

    HI Dulfy,

    do we know if the two achievement (for completing the grawl food and obtenaing the wintersday tree) count toward the meta achievement ?

    alerady finishes the meta when I did this part.

    • They don’t

      • Lord

        thx a lot

  • Morsus98

    So glad I have a use for Empyreal Fragments now.

  • Gabriel de Souza

    I got the golden ball ornament at the end of the event: “Escort the Pact squad to the conservatory” in Straits of Devastation/Blighted Battleground.

  • Lapis N Lazuli

    I received the Purple Ball Ornament from the Spelunker’s Delve JP chest.

  • Emz

    Also found out that one drops from chest, if no villagers are pushed off, in the grawl fractal.

  • LeBlanc

    Black citadel is where the cook is at today.

  • Handa Panda

    Stuck on second day. Made all for first on second can’t found Seimur anywhere…

    • Man

      Grawnk does give you hint where the chef is. e.g. walled human city -> Divinity’s Reach.
      talk to it again.

      • Doghouse

        And look for the spiral “Wintersday” lollipop icon on the map once you
        get there. I ran around Hoelbrak for 30 minutes yesterday before I
        realised that he wasn’t exactly hiding from me.

  • SpltScreen

    Word of caution for those with bags that are full (like me). If you attempt to open the Grubby Packages with insufficient inventory space, you will probably lose the ornament for the collection. Instead of becoming encumbered, I noticed when opening the Grubby package (when in my last slot in my last bag) it’s spot would be replaced with the wrecked ornament — and that was all. I thought it was just incredibly bad luck with the drop rate. But, after it happened the 5th time, I asked around and realized since the Grubby Package is trying to drop 2 things (both a Wrecked ornament AND the Collection ones) where there is only space for 1, it dawned on me that perhaps the other item was just getting automatically deleted. Sure enough, once I made more bag space, I started getting both drops in my bags. Really unfortunate you do not become encumbered, since this is the behavior when opening any other type of loot bag. I reported this as a bug, but not sure I described it in a way that makes sense.

    TLDR: Opening Grubby Packages once you have the collection without enough bag space will lead to frustration.

  • Silvyah

    I found the same kind of chest you get from the jp’s in Fractals just now.
    It contained the Small Doll.

  • Emo Giggles

    So I went through the whole thing. started the jumping puzzles for the orniments and don’t get any. When I looked to see if the collection was unlocked I couldn’t find it anywhere. I’m wondering if some how my game is bugged? Did I throw away the display case? Is this something I can start over?

    • redemption2021

      You need to unlock the collection by doing the scavenger hunt.

  • jerry jr

    At murdered dreams way point (temple of grenth), there is a chest directly east at the buried archives POI. Just get the grubby package from that, no orrian jump puzzle needed 🙂 Worked for me anyway!

  • Rehjo

  • Zarremgregarrok

    Got Gold Ball from chest at statue just west of Wren Waypoint.
    The one with Veteran Subjugator on top of it.

  • Tailer Angel

    Thanks

  • Reji

    thanks a lot Dulfy! <3 – Tiburron

  • Icko Cuyugan

    thanks man..

  • Archie Bunker

    Has anyone tried mystic toileting the “For the children” collection
    after completing the achievement? Or has everyone just salvaged them?

  • ad absurdum

    i threw it into the mystic forge. counts as normal lvl 80 item

  • Peter

    Something seriously wrong, how can my girlfriend went through maybe 20+ orrian chest and not get the gold ball!? The rocking horse took at least 6 and the chest that gave it was a non jp chest in the windy caves of Lornar’s pass! We dId most of the Orr JPs btw. I like most people acquired the goods 1st correct chest.

  • Voreo Sabrae

    Does the collection carry past wintersday? i just finished grawnk up -_-

  • Fuckin HATE Anet Faggots

    FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK Cant believe I missed out on this fuckin shit, No one told me and I was too busy. Isnt there anyway to still get this achieve?

    • It’s Not Anet’s Fault

      First off yeah it is not Anet’s fault, they gave a set time of how long this achievement is available and it was up to the players decision if they wanted to partake in it or not. Next time don’t be lazy.

      • Gaile Grey Needs To DIE!!!!!!!

        I’m not lazy I have really shity internet you ass, secondly theres only certain times i can get online, limited data, shakey scedual, and people to kill like you.

        • It’s Not Anet’s Fault

          I live in Australia, have an average of 300KB/s so my internet is shitty. Also why would you want to kill me.

        • Ocho

          You’re lazy! It’s been up for an entire month! Suck it up, buttercup, you need to actually play the game to get the rewards.

      • Angelcynn

        You have a warped understanding of lazy. Playing games more than a few hours a week is lazy. Playing games in general is lazy when compared to things like the gym, or socializing.

        Catch a clue man.

    • PurpleKissa

      Not sure about all of it, but you can still finish collecting the ornaments. I had 5/6 and today just did the Pig Iron JP and got the Green Ball Ornament which gave me the tree and Star of Gratitude.

  • Rasta

    Is this still doable? i really want the star of gratitude. Someone help please. 🙁

    • rewert

      yes, it’s still doable. I just finished it

      • Myrt

        well i have the letter from orphans but Grawnk is not living in my home instance anymore :/ so its not possible to make that thing anymore (and im looking for it since a month+)

        • rewert

          I know it’s trivial, but you read the letter, right? I remember I didn’t, then Grawnk got removed for some reason, and then I got the letter again, and after reading it, he was there

          • Myrt

            Ofc i was reading even each race i was trying, different combinations, yet still aint appearing =/ i have no idea what to do…

  • Raizel

    Can we do it again in 2015 even if we already did in 2014?

    • Angelcynn

      I am currently doing it as of two hours ago. This is bow doable again, as of 15th, December 2015. Can’t guarantee it’s back to be repeatable. 🙂 Goodluck!

    • Ardenwolfe

      From what I’ve seen, no. If you already have your Wintersday tree, and Star, you cannot repeat this quest.

    • KT KaBo0M

      Ya but rewards might be different than from the previous year.

  • A

    Would you need to complete the jp’s for the “For the Children Collection” during Wintersday to get credit or can you do it after?

    • Mia

      You can do it after the event is over as well

      • A

        Thanks!

  • Tormod

    For Warming Grawnk: Day 2: it’s **Arcallion Waypoint** not Ascallion.

  • Michael Boucher

    I just got a Rocking Horse from a splendid chest at a Sons of Svanir campfire under that vista east of Halvaunt WP in Wayfarer’s. Someone told me he got Tinsel from a chest near a poi in Orr but he doesn’t remember which one. I wonder if anybody know of any other similar non-jp chests?

    • KaS

      Yes it is possible. I got one in Orr at a non-jp location (forget where at the moment).

      • Sayaendo

        I got the rocking horse at the same location. The one in Orr was in a chest by a Balthazar statue in Lyssa’s Garden. I got the tinsel ornament from Vexa’s Lab minidungeon.

  • Faerie

    I did pig iron mine, diessa plateau and the loreclaw expanse and I didn’t get the green ball. Is there a problem or is my luck just terrible? >.> It’s the last one I need.

  • J

    I actually received the Gold Ball Ornament from the chest at Conservatory north west of the Lone Post Waypoint in Straits of Devestation.

  • Chili

    This is missing Hoelbrak for Seimur Oxbone’s Location.

  • Raz

    so basically you kill grawnk? such a happy wintersday spirit event!

    • Gammit Garm Ulvehund

      Grawnk actually kills himself, you never force grawnk to eat bloodstone in the first place, he asks for it

  • Hanz Franz

    ‘You must have the collection unlocked with the Holiday Display Case’ what is meant by this?

    I have the collection unlocked but didn’t get the ornament from Demongrub Pits jumping puzzle… -.-

  • A

    Can you get multiple ornaments?

  • KT KaBo0M

    Is Seimur broken in the Charr area. He isnt there even though the grawl keeps saying he is. When he is in any other city he is there where he is supposed to be but not in the black citadel.. I went by https://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Sous-Chef_Seimur_Oxbone and then came here to Duffy and still cannot find him. Winters Day is almost done and I won’t be home tomorrow and so this is frustrating to me.

  • KT KaBo0M

    For JP locations this is a more comprehensive list: https://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Mysterious_Grubby_Package

  • KaS

    Seems now that New Years hit you can NOT find Seimur Oxbone anymore even though that Grawl is still in home instance if you did not finish feeding him. The tree will show up IF you finished finding all the ornaments and clicked the thing you get from that.

    • mikegonzalez2k

      He still appears, he just changes his locations each day. Today (1 / 3) I found it at the Black Citadel.
