It’s Snowing… in July?!

That’s right folks, once again Wintersday in July is upon us! It may be blazing with heat outside, but that’s not going to stop the fans of Guild Wars from indulging in a little snowball fighting! From Friday 15th July, noon Pacific, until 11:59pm Pacific on Sunday 17th July, you can enjoy an entire weekend of snow-hurling madness! And as if that wasn’t enough, this year you’re even allowed to wear your favourite costume or festival hat whilst in the Snowball Arena! See you in the snow…

Summer is in full swing, but there’s a chance to cool off in Tyria during Wintersday in July. This year, as a special treat, those who spend the weekend slinging snowballs can do so in their favorite costumes and festival hats! Join us, starting at noon Pacific (-7 GMT), and find out just how refreshing it is to drink an eggnog in the summer sun. See the event page for more details.


Looking for a midsummer cure for the too-much-sun blues? Jump into our Wintersday in July celebration! The party starts at noon Pacific on Friday, July 15 and lasts until 11:59 PM Pacific on Sunday, July 17.

Anyone feeling festive and feisty will want to test their might in the Snowball Arena. This year holds a special treat: players can wear their favorite costumes and festival hats into the fray. Will you bring a seasonally-appropriate Freezie Crown or don a Lunatic Court Helm to keep you warm? Once you have picked your outfit, talk to a Wintersday Priest in Ascalon City, Droknar’s Forge, the Great Temple of Balthazar, Kamadan, or Lion’s Arch to be carted into combat.
