Guild Wars 2 dives back into Halloween on October 23rd

    
39

Expansion? Who is thinking about expansions when Halloween is prowling about? Guild Wars 2 players will have plenty with which to keep themselves occupied later this month, as The Shadow of the Mad King event returns right in time for Heart of Thorns‘ launch.

The Tyrian Halloween festivities come back for another go on October 23rd, giving players two weeks to get that candy, loot the Mad King’s lair, fight their way through the labyrinth, and (shudder) jump to the top of the clocktower. The revamped Lion’s Arch will be decorated for the holiday, and new rewards will be added into the mix including an assemble-your-own batwing shoulder piece.

Yangers Also if something gets bugged (and it will) you can just go to LA and do Halloween stuff while you wait for the fix

jsmooth1 Wyattearp1989 Kanbe Ah okay, thank you for the explanation. BTW, I apologize if my comment came off the wrong way. I didn’t notice there was another article for GW2 talking about the dungeons.

I’ll be too busy with the Halloween event to do the HoT stuff I pre-purchased. Geez! And I was so looking forward to the expansion. :P

Hardly. This is actually quite clever – for two reasons.
1. It’ll give new free to play players a huge content update to play through.
2. It’ll take pressure off the new maps and zones because many current players and vets will go to Halloween instead of HoT. It will spread out the players.
I’m doing Halloween and waiting on HoT – and I know many others that are also. HoT will always be there, but Halloween is time limited. Plus I can avoid some launch day HoT bugs as well.

Literally the best holiday in all games.

I hate farming. I don’t have any legendaries. I try to focus on fun. But, removing gold from dungeons will just take from the small earnings I make while playing the game.
E for effort though.
