    GW2 Holidays

    Since Halloween is coming up I figured I would make a thread about this. I apologize if this is a re-post, but I haven't seen anything on it. Do we know if there will be a holiday event for this Halloween? I always loved these type of events in WoW but I haven't heard anything other than they do plan on having them.

    GW1 had some fantastic holiday content. I expect the same for GW2.

    I would be really surprised if Mad King Thorn doesn't make a return this Halloween.

    Yes, they have some info on the Facebook about the upcoming Halloween event. Just some hints, we do know the Mad King is coming!
    Who knows more of gods than I? Horse gods and fire gods, gods made of gold with gemstone eyes, gods carved of cedar wood, gods chiseled into mountains, gods of empty air... I know them all.

    @GuildWars2: All we can say is it's not a bug. ;-) RT @ktr_ravious: Has anything been said on why the XP monthly achievement is now "???" #GuildWars2 ^RB
    Oh yes, he's coming.

    Typically the events take place primarily the major city for that region. GW2 is a bit different of a set up, but I imagine it will be Lion's Arch. I silently hope it's Rata Sum though. I would pay lots of money to see an asura wearing a pumpkin on its head.

    While the main event took place in a primary city it was not uncomon for lesser city's and outposts to at least have decorations up during holidays. That said I wouldnt be surprised of all citys had decorations and minor events but they have the main event/finale in LA as a central location.

    Mmhmm, your character's creation day, in GW1, would give them a mystery box with a present inside. Cool costumes, mini pets, as a cool little thing.

    GW1 did incremental updates for various events. I.e. they usually started off with some fun minigames, and next year would expand on the concept. Nowadays they have really big events on holidays.

    I would expect GW2 to follow suit, starting with new events, and expanding on them year after year.
