The Lunar New Year is just around the corner, and for the peoples of Tyria, that means it’s time for Guild Wars 2’s annual celebration, welcoming the year of the boar with good food and good fortune. As usual, Divinity’s Reach will play host to the festivities, in which players can earn essences of luck from lucky envelopes, sample delicious (and buff-granting) foods, and earn suitably suidian cosmetic items.
Although the festival is of course the main focus of the latest update, it also brought with it a handful of minor adjustments and bug fixes. For instance, time-based adventures “will now display the player’s final time on the leaderboard and in the chat log,” which should make it easier for players to see how their performances stack up against their fellow players’. In addition, the Engineer, Guardian, Mesmer, Ranger, Thief, and Warrior classes have all received some minor adjustments and/or bug fixes, the details of which you can find in the full patch notes over on the game’s official site.
