I don't care if you double the price and then do sale on festivals

It's just too good/impactful of an item to only be availabe on festivals imo

And what do you think will happen when of these "Gobblers" will be available all time around in Gem Store? Arena Net will most likely reduce that 25% gain in increase of XP (for WvW WXP) which in turn would make it less useful at all, or they will nerf the gain you get out from Gobbler's buffs so it wont really matter to have it active. Third option would be to increase the cost of Snowflakes/Candy Corn or Zhaitaffy for getting buffs from Gobbler.

You also just use "Gobbler" here without even be specific to which of these Gobbler you are referring to. We have Candy Corn Gobbler, Snowflake Gobbler and Zhaitaffy Gobbler.

Zhaitaffy Gobbler is an item that can be used to trade 25 Pieces of Zhaitaffy for a chance to receive a Dragon Coffer or a Festival Gobbler Boost that grants an additional 25% to experience from kills, gold from kills, and reward track gain in PvP and WvW.

Snowflake Gobbler is an item that can be used to trade 5 Snowflakes for a chance to receive a Wintersday Gift or a Festival Gobbler Boost that grants an additional 25% to experience from kills, gold from kills, and reward track gain in PvP and WvW.

Candy Corn Gobbler

Use this and 3 of your candy corn for a festive Halloween transform or a random boost.

  • Can only be used every 5 seconds.
  • Cannot be used while in combat, mounted, underwater, or otherwise transformed except for the transformations granted by itself.
  • Cannot be used in Instances and in PvP.
  • You must have candy corn in inventory, this item cannot be used directly from bank.
  • Upon using this item, the player will either receive a random transformation or a random boost, at the cost of 3 Pieces of Candy Corn.
  • Each successful use extends the boost duration by 7 or 10 minutes (for Experience or Item Boosts) or 15 minutes (all others).
  • It has a small chance of giving more than one bonus per use. You can even get two of the same type like 2x7 minutes Experience Booster.
  • After the Lunar New Year Update 2018 Strength Boosters, Armor Boosters, Rejuvenation Boosters, and Speed Boosters no longer work in WvW. Using the Candy Corn Gobbler in WvW will not give any of these boosters and instead grant a transformation.
  • "Drop rate" research for PvE can be found here.
  • "Drop rate" research for WvW can be found here.

Candy Corn Gobbler among those are the worst to use as it both needs to have Candy Corn in you Inventory to use and you also more limitation for other game modes then PVE (and even Instanced content will not get any advantage from using this to increase XP gain).

Candy Corn Gobbler is the best example of how a poplar Gobbler have been nerfed to be almost useless (if you aren't into random transformation).
