New Wardrobe Feature: Novelties

Novelties have been added as a new tab in the wardrobe in the Hero panel.

  • Over 50 useable items, from musical instruments to chairs to kites, can now be added to the wardrobe.
  • Novelty items now have a right-click context menu that will add them to the player’s wardrobe, similar to other item types.
  • View the wardrobe in game to see everything that can be unlocked!
  • Novelties come in four types (Chairs, Musical Instruments, Held Items, and Toys), and one of each type can be slotted for use in the wardrobe, just like selecting different mount skins.
  • A new button has been added to the right side of the skill bar. Like the mount button, right-clicking will let the player select their active Novelty type. Left-clicking activates the item.
  • The button itself and each category can all be optionally bound to hotkeys.
  • For more information, see the blog at www.guildwars2.com.

Festival of the Four Winds

On behalf of Queen Jennah of Kryta and the Captain’s Council of Lion’s Arch, you are cordially invited to participate in the return of the Festival of the Four Winds!

High atop the Labyrinthine Cliffs, our Zephyrite friends have been working in tandem with Lion’s Arch to host an incredible variety of fun vendors and events to entertain visitors from all across Tyria. This celebration of unity and peace between our cultures is more important than ever before, and we hope that you will join us in the festivities.

In this spirit of cooperation, Queen Jennah has personally overseen the reopening of the Crown Pavilion, featuring a variety of challenges both new and old for Tyria’s finest to test their mettle!

Transportation to the festivities couldn’t be easier! Special hot air balloons are now stationed in each nation’s capital city. Visitors can also sail directly by ship from Lion’s Arch.

We look forward to seeing you at the festival!

—Captain Ellen Kiel
