Obtained from

Rift Warden in Lion's Arch or Kamadan (during Wintersday)



"Grenth's legions have been busy this year... perhaps more so than any in the past. They've nicked countless presents meant for the good children of the world and stashed them deep within the Underworld. As we speak, Dwayna's followers have mustered to recover them. Grenth requests your dedication; guard the presents to your dying breath. Do you accept the Lord of the Underworld's challenge?"
Accept: "No child will be smiling this Wintersday. Grenth can count on me!"
Reject: "I think I hear Dwayna calling...."

Intermediate Dialogue 1 (Rift Warden)

"You will be transported directly to the Underworld. If you are in a party you will be separated for the duration of this task. Once there, you must recover the presents stolen by Grenth's servants. Are you ready to face the horrors of the Underworld alone?" [sic]
Accept: "I am ready."'
Reject: "I am not ready."

Intermediate Dialogue 2 (Avatar of Grenth)

"You have done well in your service to Grenth. Your situation in the afterlife is no doubt assured, however the Mists will have to wait... for now. Do you wish to return to the realm of the living?"
Option 1: "Take me to Lion's Arch."
Option 2: "Take me to Kamadan."
Option 3: "I want to play the bonus challenge."

Reward Dialogue

"Word of your service has already spread throughout the Underworld. Perhaps Grenth will emerge victorious with you on his side."
