Where does one find recipes?
Not sure, but I got a number of recipes from the mysterious presents during Wintersday. And then there were the recipes that you could buy with socks/hats/sweaters. I saw some recipes for sale in the TP and was wondering if I should sell mine.
No clue if those used snowflakes though. It might be possible that you can discover recipes through crafting.
EDIT: Found some entries on the wiki: http://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Snowflake
Fojja – Vyxxi – Nymmra – Mymmra – Champion of Dwayna .. and more
Highly Over Powered Explorers [HOPE] – Desolation EU
Yeah, I found those, too. I was hoping there was a longer list. Can’t discover them without making random components, though.
Cooking and JC are by discovery. The armor and weapon crafts are by recipe for the insignia and inscription. You cannot get the mats or recipes via the event as it ended on January 3rd. However, you can probably find both on the trading post.
Here is a list: http://dulfy.net/2012/12/15/gw2-wintersday-recipes/
You may want to bookmark/favorite that site as it has some list for other events and items as well.
Thank you! That’s exactly what I was looking for.
As Ian mentioned, Cooking and Jewelry recipes involving snowflakes are learned via Discovery. For all other disciplines, Armorsmithing/Leatherworker/Tailor, the low-level crafting recipes are learned automatically when your rank becomes high enough. Intricate/Imbued recipes could only be found from opening Gifts, so now that Wintersday is over, you need to purchase them from the TP. Fortunately, their prices basically hit rock bottom as the event progressed, so you can likely pick up each recipe for just 1c over their vendor price.
