Guild Wars 2 has been updating a lot recently. Just a while back they released their expansion Path of Fire, which brought a new land, steeds, enemies, and much more to the table. While you might be ok with just tackling that content for a while, the team behind the game want to stick with tradition, which means that since Halloween is almost here, it’s time for a special event. So, prepare for frights, fights, and fierce mad kings in the “Shadow Of The Mad King” event!
What can you expect from this event? Well, a lot of darkness, dark tricks, terrible jokes (apparently), and loads of themed content. For example, in this “Mad King’s Realm”, there is a labyrinth that is full of monsters for you to battle. Will you be able to overcome anything that you come across? Be wary…it’s not going to be as straightforward as you think.
Or, if you want to go right into the heart of the matter, go and face King Oswald Thorn himself. He’s waiting for you, and he’s not afraid to fight dirty. You know…being a “Mad King” and all that.
Still not enough? Well, how about a timing challenge? If you enter the Mad King’s Clocktower you’ll have to jump from remnant to remnant of the dissolving clock tower in order to reach the top! If you fail? Well…it’s a long way down. You’ve been warned.
Looking for something more lighthearted? Well, there is a festival in the Lion’s Arch, one where you can have and hang out with your fellow Guild Wars 2 players.
Finally, as is tradition, there will be new armor and weapons skins to put you in the Halloween mood. Who doesn’t want to dress up for Halloween?
The event is on right now! So don’t miss out on the fun!
