Celebrate Seven Years of Guild Wars
April 24th to May 8th

The Year of the Dragon marks seven sensational years of Guild Wars, and we want you to join us for our biggest anniversary party ever.

It’s time once again to throw open the Shing Jea Boardwalk, rev up the Rollerbeetles, and don our party hats for two weeks of festive fun from April 24th to May 8th. In addition to the usual games and gifts, we’re packing this party with drops and activities never before seen in an anniversary celebration!

Game On!

We’re commemorating our seventh anniversary with a huge party in Shing Jea Monastery and outposts all over Tyria.

Are you light on your feet? Speak with Captain Li Sah and test your dodgeball skills in the Dragon Arena! Do you feel the need for speed? Speak to the Rollerbeetle Trainer and take a spin in Rollerbeetle Racing. You’ll find both these NPCs in Lion’s Arch, Shing Jea Monastery, Kamadan, and the Great Temple of Balthazar.

The fun doesn’t stop there. During the festival, keep your eyes peeled for more special drops than you’ve ever seen before. And be sure to stop by Embark Beach to talk to Ceira, Sworn to Fire. During the celebration, she’ll be distributing the limited-edition Ranger pet: the Hound of Balthazar.

Thanks for Seven Years of Support!

Thanks again to each and every one of you for your continued support over the years. We wish you the best of adventures in the year ahead. Enjoy the festivities!
