Winter’s Presence is the perfect addition to your Wintersday wardrobe. This equippable shoulder piece has a gentle flurry of snow falling and leaves an icy trail in your characters’ wake as they run.

Winters Presence requires several collection items to be unlocked, which are only unlockable during Wintersday, and it cannot be bought from the Trading Post as it is account bound. To unlock the collection, you must purchase the Blueprint for Winter’s Essence from a Charity Corps Seraph [Gift Wrapping] in Divinity’s Reach and consume it. This will unlock the collection and allow you to progress from there.
