Living World

Halloween

Once again, the gates of the Mad Realm have opened and Kryta’s most infamous monarch, Mad King Thorn, has returned to hold court in Lion’s Arch! Loyal vassals of the king are strongly encouraged to enjoy the festivities: meet the denizens of the Mad Realm in events across Kryta; tour the Mad Realm itself in the Mad King’s Labyrinth and fearsome Mad King’s Clock Tower; compete with your fellow mortals in Lunatic Inquisition, Reaper’s Rumble, and the Mad King’s Raceway; attend to the king’s whims in his notorious pastime of Mad King Says; or match wits and blades against royalty in Ascent to Madness.

Frightening Fun from the Black Lion Trading Company

Free Hallows Fortune Fireworks

Happy Halloween! Don’t forget to stop by the Gem Store and kick off the festival with a free Hallows Fortune Fireworks bundle.

Sand Lion Warclaw Skin

Venture out into the Crystal Desert, and it won’t be long before you face down the king of the sand dunes. Now you can command this ferocious feline—and enjoy the sight of your enemies falling beneath its claws.

The Sand Lion Warclaw skin is available for individual purchase and can be found as an Uncommon drop inside Vermilion Autumn Chests.
