    You can get a guild kite by going to your guild armorer and trading your kite in along with 15 gold.

    • Genesis

      I tried to visit the guild armorer in LA but there’s no option to do so. Which NPC did you go to?

      • Genesis

        Oh found it 😀

  • Shino

    Dulfy, do you know when these kites will be relesed in gem store?
    Or how much they will cost?

  • korval – “Let’s Go Fly A Kite” from Marry Poppins! 😀

  • Summer

    i want the wind kite.but they sent me the sun one.A sad story.

    • Hailfall

      I wanted the Sun kite but they sent me a wind one.. I wish we could trade 🙁

      • Aryea

        wanted the wind, but they sent me the sun kite! lol Wish I could trade you!

  • Doomer

    Is it just if you paid money for gems? I bought a ton of stuff in the gem store during that tmie but used gold to get my gems. Just curious.

    • Not really sure, I paid money for gems and got my kite.

    • Mar von V

      it’s for supporting the game. Supporting the game equals using real money. Gold conversions don’t feed the kids. I’m sorry but if you want a thank you for supporting, support them 🙂

    • Steve MD

      its of you spent money on gw2,

      trading gold in for gems does not count

    • Wintyr Walton

      no you dont have to buy gems i havent bought any gems since last year and get them for converting and spending them in the store

  • Khezekiah

    what about guild kites?

  • Dan Jennings

    You can now buy the kites in the store. 500 gems.

  • Alilinke

    Just a quick question, why do your skin screenshots always seem to be in HotW? 😛

    • Best lighting there compared to other places

  • Leina

    They are amazing, if they told me beforehand what i get when banking gems in that timeframe, i would have gotten some gems.

  • Matty

    Are they permanent for the gem store now or will they be removed at some point?

  • Ssilvak

    And the flute ? You’re late !

  • Drychsyllu

    Does the guild kite emblem change depending on which guild you represent, if in more than one?

  • Khons

    so unfair, i purchased gems a few days after in july 🙁

    • airwolf112

      Same here :/

      • NotHappy

        Do you want to hear unfair? I purchased gem at 7PM June 30th server time and I do not get a kite because Anet told me that they gave the kites away according to UTC time therefore my purchase was made at 2AM July 1st. So even though I purchased my gem in the correct time frame according to the sever I play on I luck out.

        • zOm

          Dont worry you’ll get the reward the next quarter !
          (for buying gems from July 1st to September 30th)

  • Nick

    nice anet rocks! didnt expect anything when i bought gems worth 40€. and now i got a mini-pet pack and this kite for free. pretty damn cool!

    i would really love to support them. but theye need to fix their prices. as i said paid 40€ and didnt got much of it. i have all the infinite collect tools but these are character bound … thats really dumb imo. :/

  • Psy

    Wind, Lightning and Sun Kite, i imagine they are items that stay in bag ?
    But the guild one ? Like the preview, in toy slot ?
