Wintersday Festival Achievements Guide

GW2. Wintersday Festival Achievements Guide 2021.




The Wondrous Workshop of Toymaker Tixx

Total achievements: 17 – 127AP


Disassembly – 10AP

Defeat a total of 100 Toys. You can do this easily in Toypocalypse because the snowmen and the catapults will kill the toys for you.



Dolyak Defender – 5AP

Finish Toypocalypse with at least one gift dolyak alive. This is the requirement to complete Toypocalypse anyway, so just focus on building siege fast enough that the toys do not pressure the dolyaks.



Donation Defender – 3AP

This achievement can be done during the dolyak escort event, after Ho-Ho-Tron raised enough funds at the Crown Pavilion Waypoint. Once it starts you have to protect the dolyak and “kick” the skritt that spawns near, by simply pressing “F” on them. Speed the dolyak up by giving it swiftness or superspeed. Complete the event by helping the dolyak reach the Salma District to earn the achievement.



Finders Keepers – 6AP

Same as above, this achievement can be done during the dolyak escort event. You need to collect a total of 25 Dropped Presents. The dolyak will drop these presents while walking to the destination point, just simply collect them. It’s recommended that you don’t go ahead of the dolyak or you will miss them.



Golden Generosity – 25AP

Donate to Ho-Ho-Tron while he is raising funds to start the escort dolyak event using the 1 gold option a total of three times.



Holiday Food Drive – 15AP

During the event “Donate Wintersday food for the people of Ammoon” you will need to donate a total of 150 food items to finish this achievement. Here is the list of the food items that you can donate:

  • Tropical Peppermint Cake
  • Scoop of Mintberry Swirl Ice Cream
  • Peppermint Omnomberry Bar

Honorary Krewe Member – 5AP

Defeat Toxx inside Tixx’s Infinirarium. This activity/dungeon is recommended to be done with 2 to 5 players.



Mercy of the Toymaker – 5AP

Open a total of 1000 Wintersday Gifts. You can only progress this achievement while the Wintersday Festival is active. You will be rewarded with Rimed Verdant Wintersday Gift.


Nothing but Broken Toys – 5AP

Survive 50 waves of Toypocalypse. Your task is to protect five gift dolyaks while malfunctioning toys spawn over ten rounds, with three waves per round.



To effectively farm Toypocalypse, you want to build siege using the scraps you can get from breaking the terrain in the zone. Use the Rifle to have the most damage for boss phases and spam the 1 skill on Toxx. Otherwise use the Rifle 3 skill to break the terrain and collect scraps.

Focus on building catapults where you find the scraps because you can waste time trying to position them. There are more scraps than there is time, so focus on putting out siege first. Build multiple siege before you start upgrading them because when you upgrade a siege it will fully heal it and after 15 minutes siege will disappear so upgrading refreshes the timer. Try to build the siege in between the spawn points of the toys and the dolyaks so that they can have the most line of sight.

  1. I have a core account and I have to use the rentalraptor, is there any way I can complete SNow Drifter? My best time after a bnuch of tries is 3:05.

    • Yes, it can be done. I just did it in 2:57 on the rental raptor. It helps to really know the course well, which makes it possible for you to figure out where you can make tight turns to shave some time (aim for the edge of the bubble). Good luck!
