It’s hard to believe that Guild wars has already been 8 years, over that time the game has gone through a lot of changes. With the 8th anniversary is upcoming arenaNet has announced the planned celebrations to run from April 22 through April 29.
To commemorate the anniversary they hold a huge party in Shing Jea Monastery and outposts all over Tyria. It’s time once again to throw open the Shing Jea Boardwalk, rev up the Rollerbeetles, and don the party hats for a week of festive , In addition to the usual games and gifts, they’re packing this anniversary party with a number of great drops and activities!
Are you light on your feet? Speak with Captain Li Sah and test your dodgeball skills in the Dragon Arena! Do you feel the need for speed? Speak to the Rollerbeetle Trainer and take a spin in Rollerbeetle Racing. You’ll find both these NPCs in Lion’s Arch, Shing Jea Monastery, Kamadan, and the Great Temple of Balthazar.
The fun doesn’t stop there. Keep your eyes peeled for special drops and be sure to stop by Embark Beach to talk to Ceira, Sworn to Fire. During the celebration, Ceira will distribute the anniversary Ranger pet: the Hound of Balthazar.
As an added bonus, characters celebrating eight or more years in Tyria will receive a gift card good for their choice of birthday gift boxes from years past. Xunlai Gift Givers have been stationed in Lion’s Arch, Kamadan, Shing Jea Monastery, and the Great Temple of Balthazar to help with the exchange. Who says you can’t choose your presents?
