It’s patch day for Guild Wars 2 today and the new event is live. “Festival of the Four Winds has returned to Tyria!” ArenaNet says. “Come kick back in the Labyrinthine Cliffs or take down watchknights in the Crown Pavilion.” As we’ve previously covered, this Zephyrite-styled event had disappeared for several years prior to its resurrection in 2018, and now here in 2019 it’s back again, with hot air balloons, multiple races, and so forth to keep you occupied until the big show at the end of August.cash shop updates; we spy an adorable raptor skin and paraglider, plus ArenaNet is gearing up for a weekend of pre-anniversary sales.
Not mentioned (yet?) but also live today is the collaborative community event that’ll task players with donating items and lucent crystals to the Mystic Forge to unlock the knowledge needed to implement legendary runes and sigils.
