Beginning May 20, 2014
The Zephyrites have returned to support Lion’s Arch! In Divinity’s Reach, the Queen has reopened the Crown Pavilion to show her support for the recovering port city. Join in the festivities to raise morale and celebrate the Zephyrites’ contributions to the Lion’s Arch relief effort.
The Return of the Zephyrites
The Labyrinthine Cliffs is a hub of activity! Zephyrites and merchants have gathered together to vend their wares. You can use the Zephyrites’ movement skills to explore the map, scour the area on a scavenger hunt for sky crystals, and trade your materials for Zephyr Sanctum Supply Boxes and other goods!
Events in the Labyrinthine Cliffs
In addition to the other attractions of the bazaar, there are two new events to be found in the Labyrinthine Cliffs. Transform yourself into a dolyak calf and test your agility in the Flying Dolyak race, or help Barkeep Ixcic gather ingredients to prepare her Sparkling Effervescence drink!
Sanctum Sprint and Aspect Arena
Immerse yourself in the joy of movement with the return of the Zephyrites’ two hallmark activities! Dash through waterfalls, leap over chasms, and race to the top of the cliff in the Sanctum Sprint, or harness the offensive power of the aspect crystals in the Aspect Arena! Both activities are accessible for the duration of the Festival via their respective NPCs at the top of the Labyrinthine Cliffs.
The popular Crown Pavilion is open for business once again! Return to the Crown Pavilion in Divinity’s Reach to test your skill against some of the gravest threats humanity has ever faced. Within the six areas of the pavilion you’ll find foes from all across Tyria, including elite bosses that need to be defeated as part of the timed Boss Blitz event. The challenges in the pavilion have been restructured to require more coordination and teamwork than ever before!
The Queen’s Gauntlet
What would the Crown Pavilion be without the Queen’s Gauntlet, an elite challenge for only the bravest and most skilled heroes? Face off against foes of increasing difficulty and test yourself with special combat gambits! Prove to the world that you are truly a master of combat in this solo challenge arena.
As you participate in the Labyrinthine Cliffs and Crown Pavilion festivities, collect festival tokens and favors to trade in for rewards! Many of the prestigious prizes from previous Living World releases are available, as well as the brand-new Endless Dolyak Calf Tonic and the adorable Mini Panda!
