Guild Wars 2’s Shadow of the Mad King Halloween event returns next week

His jokes always slay the audience: Yes, Mad King Thorn returns to Guild Wars 2 this year as the Shadow of the Mad King is launching next week on October 16th. And hey, there’s new stuff to go with the old stuff!

“While ghosts walk alongside mortals, this year’s festival includes:

Reaper’s Rumble: Playable for the first time since the original GW2 Halloween celebration – it’s a fast-paced PvP format where players compete to recover pumpkins and spawn hordes of skeletons to attack the enemy team’s base.
Mad King’s Raceway: New this year, the track was built on the same map as Reaper’s Rumble that showcases the star mount of the current Living Story, the Roller Beetle.
Three new weapons: These took inspiration from real world horror tropes: a syringe that functions as a dagger called The Cure, a lightning rod players can wield as a sword called Soul Conductor, and a butcher knife players can use as an axe called Revenge.

Players who have completed Episode 3 of Season 4 of the living story can delve into the ancient rivalry between Mad King Thorn and Palawa Joko through a new collection achievement.”

A syringe dagger called The Cure? Uggggg. I love/hate it. It’s perfect

The best Guild Wars 2 event of the year (other than Super Adventure Box, of course) will run through November 6th.
