Festival of the Four Winds Begins Next Week!

by The Guild Wars 2 Team on July 17, 2018


On July 24, a big summer celebration is blowing in—the Festival of the Four Winds! A collaborative effort by Her Royal Majesty Queen Jennah of Kryta, the Zephyrites, the Lionguard, and even the Black Lion Trading Company, this annual festival brings back popular summertime activities in both Divinity’s Reach and the Labyrinthine Cliffs.

The Crown Pavilion

Queen Jennah herself will preside over the festivities in Divinity’s Reach, where ambitious contenders can do battle in the Crown Pavilion to earn prestige and rewards. Join the Boss Blitz melee to take down vicious villains,* and compete in one-on-one matchups with notorious challengers in the Queen’s Gauntlet.

The Labyrinthine Cliffs

Traders, crafters, and other compelling and mysterious individuals have gathered for the Bazaar of the Four Winds. Relax on the beach, hunt for sky crystals, barter for goods, or just engage in a little quiet people-watching. Be sure to take your griffon for a spin around the cliffs—and give the Zephyrites a warm welcome back.

To get in the festival spirit, we’ve put together an asset kit with nostalgic Festival of the Four Winds art, wallpapers, and music, along with some new screenshots. You can download it here.

*Vicious villains and their contemptable compatriots are represented by the new, improved, and entirely secure Watchknight Mk II system.
