The Guild Wars 5 Year Anniversary Celebration
We’re celebrating our fifth anniversary! We couldn't have come this far without each and every one of you, so in addition to our upcoming Five Year Anniversary Update, we're throwing a massive party – and you’re the guest of honor! For those characters turning five, we’ve got a special Birthday Present just for you!
The festivities begin at Noon Pacific on Thursday, April 22 and run until Noon Pacific on Thursday, April 29. We’ve got a lot of fun stuff planned this year:
Feeling lucky? The citizens of Shing Jea Monastery have once again reopened the Boardwalk, a unique attraction that offers games of chance for those with an adventurous streak. May fortune smile upon you!
If you're after the competitive thrill, you can battle it out in the PvP Dragon Arena. Just speak with Captain Li Sah to enter.
Do you feel the need for speed? Test your skill at Rollerbeetle Racing, the national sport of Cantha! Just speak with the Rollerbeetle Trainer to get started.
You’ll find both Captain Li Sah and the Rollerbeetle Trainer in Lion's Arch, Shing Jea Monastery, Kamadan, and the Great Temple of Balthazar.
Presents for All
Who doesn’t love getting a present? In true birthday fashion, we'll once again have plenty of presents to pass around! Starting at 12:01 AM Pacific on Friday, April 23, characters turning five years old will find a gift in their inventories—a new miniature from this year's birthday series!
Characters turning one, two, three, or four will receive a wrapped miniature from that corresponding set of past Guild Wars birthday presents. We give birthday presents year round, so each of your characters will receive gifts on their personal birthdays (creation dates).
Join the birthday celebration and have some fun with us—after all, Guild Wars only turns five once!
We want to extend our sincere thanks to each and every one of you for continued support. We wish you the best of adventures in the coming year – enjoy yourselves!
