The monument feature is motivating me to play a bit more. And you still have to pay for your account key, so remember that it's not completely "no pay". But, no monthly fee so it's a one time money deal. For some reason I'd always enjoy a crafting system but it's not real easy to balance that out.

This is news about the first game, but I thought I'd post it here, rather than make a brand new topic for it.
Anyone with Factions should really log-on today, as it's the return of the Dragon Festival, from noon PST onwards!

Quote from: Guild Wars
To commemorate the bravery of the citizens of Cantha last year in driving back the demons who threatened to ruin the Dragon Festival, this year's festival will include dramatic reenactments of those events, and all are invited to participate in these little dramas. Whether it's facing off against hordes of Naga and Yeti driven mad by papier-mâché demons, clearing these same "demonic" forces from a bandit camp, or accepting the calls-to-arms from Captain Rujiyo when more "demons" attack various towns across the island, participants will find numerous ways to join in the fun.

All the usual mini-games will be re-opened during this festival, including the Rollerbettle racing, the Dragon Arena and the Rings of Fortune, where you can earn Victory Tokens to cash in for special prizes.  There's also new quests and missions through-out the weekend and during the finally, if you have 250 tokens, you will be awarded a special Demon Hat.  :)

In my opinion, this is why Guild Wars is so great, we always get big events like this, where as most big MMO's where you have to pay monthly fee's dont, or if they do, much more rarley.  I've not been playing GW mcuh lately, but I'm going on now just for this.

where? I'll come... and what's your name? Mine's (naturally) Hunter Mae, although I'm not a hunter.

Winter Snowblind usually, but it depends which character I'm using.  I'm mostly on the International districts.

And wow, those bonus missions they're doing for this event are really hard.  Only having four people per group doesn't help either.  Seems very few people have been able to finish them, and you get a very crappy reward if you actually can.  Rest of the event has been great though.  :)

Same with the original Dragon Festival event.

Well the Festival is over now.  With the exception of people spawn camping the presents, it was a pretty good event.  Not quite as cool as some of the previous ones, but I guess the developers are pretty busy at the moment.  And I don't want to give away any secrets here, but has anyone realised how badly the victory tokens can be abused?  For simply competing those four festival quests, you can get 240 tokens.  That's just under five platinum.  I made over 50k yesterday alone, and I've seen numerous characters going around with names like "Vicki Tokens" and "Sellin Tokens".

A little odd that the developers would miss something so painfully obvious.  Oh well, I'm off to buy some 75k armour.   ;D

http://wiki.guildwars.com/wiki/Special_event

The four big holiday events they hold every year are the Canthan New Year, the Dragon Festival, Halloween and Wintersday.  They tend to not announce them until very close to when they start though, so it's worth paying attention.  They also have a different special Weekend every week.  Usually things like double dye drops, or double experience for capping skills.

 :o I totally want to shoot a man through the throat. Also, damn are the Asura cool though.

Man do I wish they'd add a Bard class to guild wars, (not Mesmers! Bleh!).

Anyway, my derv is my only level 20 right now. Leveling a ranger tho.

I can never get at least 1k with this game. I find it much too impossible to even try to make money in this game.

I got rich by SS farming with a friend of mine in the Underworld, back when I played. I also made a killing by getting Icy Dragon Swords early.
