The Guild Wars 2 Dragon Bash Festival will return later this month, development studio ArenaNet announced. The event was last available in 2013.
This year's edition will see the Dragon Bash festival event return in the in-game city Hoelbrak. Players will be able to bust open dragon pinatas, battle holographic dragon minions in the open world and the new Dragon Arena, bet on moa races and more.
The event was last available in June 2013 and never returned to the game until now. It was a holiday event inspired by the historical and popular Dragon Festival from Guild Wars Factions, but with a Lion's Arch flair, intending to symbolize the resistance to the Elder Dragons.
During the event, a firework finale will occur at dawn every two hours between specific dates. The exact time of dawn depends on the server or overflow, but will always occur two hours after the previous dawn.
The Guild Wars 2 Dragon Bash festival will start on June 25, 2019, and ends on July 16, 2019.
