Guild Wars 2 resurrects Dragon Bash events from June 25 to July 16

Surprise! Dragon Bash is returning to Guild Wars 2 next week. Even our columnists were stunned at this announcement, as the event hasn’t been seen since its inaugural run in 2013.

“After Zhaitan’s defeat, Tyrians came together to celebrate something that had long been thought impossible: the death of an Elder Dragon. Now that Mordremoth’s been muffled, Kralkatorrik’s cracked, and Aurene has ascended, it’s time to get back to partying! From June 25 to July 16, Hoelbrak will host the return of the Dragon Bash festival. Bust open dragon pinatas, battle holographic dragon minions in the open world and the new Dragon Arena, bet on moa races, and stuff yourself with zhaitaffy.”

ArenaNet also resurrected the Festival of the Four Winds last year after several years of absence, so maybe we’re witnessing the start of a welcome trend.

I don’t remember this at all, so I guess I’ll have to dig up some walkthroughs to see what it’s about and if there’s anything fun/any good rewards I want.

If not…then that’s fine too, I’ll just keep mindlessly farming bosses/meta events while catching up on more podcasts/YT videos. I’m so far behind, and at least I can multi-task a bit with mindless boss zergs without missing anything.

Those guides won’t be very useful. It’s pretty much a new holiday with the Dragon Bash theme since Dragon Ball from the Lunar Festival was originally the center of Dragon Bash. I’d suggest waiting for new guides before making a decision.

I got super nostalgic hearing the Dragon Bash song in a trailer again. Very seriously nostalgic. My eyes got watery and everything.

I’m looking forward to the event. It’s like it’s 2013 all over again.

I started this game 2019 but feels nostalgic as well…

Hoelbrak, of all places!

A chill location for a summer event? Sure, it’s hot enough outside anyway! ;P

That’s what I told my wife about cleaning the garage

I think staff at Anet are kind of cleaning out the garage– looking for stuff to entertain folk over the summer until they’re ready to release S5.
