It's that time of year again. The Guild Wars Dragon Festival
is nearly upon us, bringing quests and special missions, re-opening the Monastery Boardwalk, and putting a huge amount of sweets, alcohol, party supplies, and presents into circulation.
The festival, which celebrates the survival of the Empire of the Dragon
, is an old favorite with the Guild Wars
community. The party begins this year on July 1st, and the official Guild Wars
site offers a nicely-done schedule
of events, dates and times for players.
Another time-honored Dragon Festival tradition is the ritual chanting of "How do I get a hat?" in local chat. The answer to this question is "Have 250 Victory Tokens in your inventory and be here when the Emperor comes on Sunday." It's a good thing to know, because this year's hat (mask) hints at something special: "This year's mask design is inspired by the great dragons of legend."
