Guild Wars 2’s Dragon Bash Festival will be available to all players from today. To honour another year of survival in the shadow of the Elder Dragons, the defiant citizens of Lion’s Arch have banded together for a boisterous festival full of fun activities, exclusive rewards and explosive surprises. Players will be introduced to Marjory Delaqua, an investigator who travels in the shadowy underworld of Lion’s Arch.
Dedicated festival goers can earn two sets of exclusive holographic dragon wings by participating in Dragon Bash activities. Those who take part can earn the exclusive Dragon’s Jade weapon skins, only available during Dragon Bash. The ancient Tyrian pastime of Dragon Ball returns. Teams of players test their skills against one another in this fast-paced game of reflexes. Farshore Ward in Lion’s Arch is the site of the fast and furious Moa Races, where anything can happen. Combustible dragon effigies have been hidden everywhere. Perform a ritual dance to light them and receive a temporary boost. Keep an eye open for dragon piñatas strung up in honour of the festival, then break them open to receive tasty Dragon Bash candy.
Watch the skies above Lion’s Arch come alive with an explosive fireworks show every two hours from Friday 14th June at 17:00 BST to Monday 17th June at 17:00 BST. Stay through the finale and receive a unique festival helm – The Horns of the Dragon. On Tuesday 18th June, gather on the Grand Piazza of Lion’s Arch and join the jovial Magnus the Bloody Handed as he presides over an evening of merriment and cheer over the lighting of the dragon effigies. Electronic Theatre will keep you updated with all the latest details about Guild Wars 2.
