It is possible to earn a LOT of karma during GW2 Wintersday by handing out wrapped gifts to orphans in Divinity’s Reach.
Make Wrapped Gifts to Give Orphans
Talk to the Charity Corps Seraph in the Crown Pavilion of Divinity’s Reach.
Buy Wrapping Paper and Toy Skins from this NPC. Then turn those into Wrapped Gifts.
Load Up on Karma Buffs
Before you go looking for orphans, stack up as many karma buffs as you can.
- If you have the expansion packs and belong to a guild with tavern buffs, get the karma buff.
- Look for karma banners around the Wintersday area in Divinity’s Reach. Many guilds will drop them for players, especially after reset.
- Use a Winter’s Blessing snow globe, which you earn after every 5 times you complete the Wintersday dailies.
- Eat one of the Wintersday utility consumables: Fruitcake, Peppermint Oil, or Icicle. And one of the Wintersday food consumables (ice cream).
Find Orphans and Give Them Gifts
Now run around Divinity’s Reach giving those Wrapped Gifts to orphans. Each orphan will accept one present per day, and will reward you with karma.
There are several maps of orphan locations available. The map at GW2timer.com includes a route so you can be sure to hit every orphan without having to backtrack.
Do this every day during the Wintersday event!
