The Year of the Dragon is upon us!
“The 2012 Canthan New Year Festival begins at noon Pacific (-8 GMT) on Thursday, February 2nd, 2012and will end at noon Pacific (-8 GMT) on Monday, February 6th, 2012. On Sunday, February 5th, the Celestial Dragon will appear in Shing Jea Monasteryevery three hours to sample Canthan cuisine. The Dragon’s feast culminates in dancing, fireworks, a shower of gifts, and special prizes for festival-goers—but only if the Dragon is satisfied with the offerings! Ensure the Dragon’s blessing of good fortune by helping prepare dishes for the feast.
In addition to the great feast, you can explore the Shing Jea Boardwalk, embark on a variety of festival-themed quests, and visit the wandering Fortune Teller for a glimpse of your destiny. Enjoy a good game of chance? Try your luck and test your skill in the Rollerbeetle Races! Those who are feeling slightly more combative can visit the Dragon Arena all weekend long for some all-out dodgeball action. Canthans living abroad won’t be left out:Lion’s Arch and Kamadan will also host smaller celebrations, complete with traditional New Year’s decorations.”
Above is the details from Guildwars.com about this years Canthan New Year celebration. Just like every year most fans will be out to get that mini celestial pet which happens to be a dragon this year. I personally hope that it isn’t just a rehash of previous years and that we may see a couple new quests to continue further into Winds of Change which shall take us onward into GuildWars 2. We shall see you all online!
