Halloween is almost here.
There’s a baleful moon on the rise and a chill in the air.
Ghosts bemoan their lonesome graves,
and bats in the belfry grow restless and crazed.
Prepare your costume; get ready for sweets.
It’s almost time to shout, “Trick or treat!”
Mark your calendars, ladies and gentlemen. The Mad King Thorn makes his first ever GW2 appearance and Guild Wars 2 Halloween festivities are starting October 22nd! ArenaNet has released a teaser page with all of the juicy details for this year’s festival. Here are some of the highlights:
Black Lion Trading Company
Never one to miss out on an opportunity, Evon Gnashblade has stocked all new items at the Black Lion Trading Company, including Halloween costumes and new transforms that will allow you to play Costume Brawl with fellow costumed players.
PvP Paid Tournaments
Paid tournaments will be available for competitive, five-person teams. These tournaments require tickets to enter and give better prizes than normal tournaments. Participating teams will earn qualifier points that will allow them to compete in future, larger tournaments. Tournament tickets can be earned from winning normal tournaments or purchased in the Gem Store.
The world continues to evolve with new events, jumping puzzles, bosses, mini-dungeons, and achievements appearing across a variety of maps.
The Krewe in Bellevue has also released some stunning concept art to go along with the wondrous event. They have beautiful concepts of the Guild Wars Halloween Moon, a festively redecorated Lion’s Arch, and a whimsical clock tower.
