ArenaNet's in the holiday spirit, bringing Wintersday to Guild Wars 2 next week, and also gifting players with a small balance update targeting condition builds.

The Wintersday patch brings the usual festivities back to Tyria, including The Winter Wonderland jumping puzzle, Toypocalypse, Tixx's Infinirarium, the Bell Choir, and Snowball Mayhem, as well as "a variety of returning and new rewards." The festivities go live on Dec. 12 and run until Jan. 2.

Also on Dec. 12, a balance patch will be implemented, with the twin purposes of "Pushing damaging burst condition toward ramping, sustained damage" and "Re-vamping several passive vulnerability traits to offer more distinct opportunities or create synergy with other traits." You can read more about the changes on the GW2 forums.
