But we didn’t get anything new.. so what was the harm in letting it run?
if ‘halloween is over’ is a valid argument, it should’ve ended november 1st

Ohh, nvm. There is a note that says

“The following items are not included due to purchase limits. Price has been adjusted appropriately.
*Shared Inventory Slot”

The price was adjusted to 1655 gems. I guess Dulfy says this as well:) Sorry just woke up and reading was never my thing:)

Like most of people I suspected that we will get new ”current events”. But now that it didn’t happen I’m kinda happy to be honest. Halloween burned me a lot on GW2, being in labyrinth everyday and all. One week [if they put ce next week that is] break will be a good change.

“DOOMSDAY PREP PACK” !!!!! Arena no the outcome of the election and Hillary Clinton is in!!!!! Start building your bomb shelters people the Clintapocolypse is coming!!!!!!!!

Yes and we definitely need bomb shelters now or to just flee to another country that has a sane president…..whichever

Thats amazing, it’s gonna be great, it’s gonna be fantastic , what a day to be a privelaged white ! Time for some mayonnaise ! So spicy!

the “new wurms” were accidental skin patch, a leak even for the upcoming expansion. they are supposed to be Giant Wurms in the Crystal desert that you used to ride-IN in GW1
