GW2 Announces Festival of the Four Winds
GW2 Festival of Four Winds will begin on May 20, featuring the return of Zephyr Sanctum and Crown Pavilion.
As part of the celebration of our launch in China, we’re holding an in-game festival that brings back some of the best-loved Living World content! The Zephyrites have returned to the Labyrinthine Cliffs to do business and trade their goods, and Queen Jennah has reopened the Crown Pavilion. Experience the joy of movement as you harness the power of the Zephyrites’ aspect crystals, or put your battle skills to the test in the Crown Pavilion and Queen’s Gauntlet.
Players will also get to help rebuild Lion’s Arch (this part was not on the GW2 website but was included as part of the press release)
Get ready: the Festival of the Four Winds begins on May 20!
Edit: According to a GW2 Developer, these two area will have a bit of Chinese flair.
Edit 2: According to those who went to the Chinese Beta Festival, players will have chance to get guaranteed rewards from past Living Story events in this patch (i.e. those from meta achievements) but rare drops such as Monocle and Molten Backpack will likely not be available for NA/EU players.
