World Events

World events are limited-duration special events. Some are holiday events, some are lore or world-building events. Some include or involve crafting, some reward house items.

Listed below are various world events that I track due to crafting components and/or house items. The current and future events should also be found on the in-game calendar, but it is hoped that the articles linked below will be helpful.

Any start/end times that are mentioned use Pacific time.

Current/Upcoming Events!

Prelude 2020: Haven Bound This expansion prelude will run from September 22, 2020 until the release of the 2020 expansion later in the year. Once the expansion has released, the prelude currency will no longer be available to be earned, though you may be able to spend already earned coins for a very brief time.

Nights of the Dead 2020. This event will run from October 8, 2020 through November 1, 2020.

Days of Summer 2020. Week 1 began Sept. 22, 2020. Locations for the first week, and a preview of the house items that will unlock throughout the event are now available.

Heroes' Festival 2020 will run from November 6 through November 16, 2020.

Ongoing Permanently

The Days of Summer (2017) the Days of Summer 2018 and the Days of Summer 2019 are still available. Members may run these events once per account to unlock the vendor for their entire account. (Some items are level locked, so not all alts will see the same items for sale.) Days of Summer 2020 is linked above for those who are all caught up with these past quests and are ready to start this new season of them.

Recurring Events

There are two events that occur once a month. In both cases, they will usually start at 12:01 a.m. Pacific on their designated start date, and end at 11:59 p.m. Pacific on the scheduled end date. (Basically, midnight to midnight, shifted one minute off to make it less confusing.) In both cases, there is only minor crafting involved, but many lovely house items that can be obtained.

The City Festivals run from the 1st through the 7th of each month, and will visit a different city every month. (In each location, the event should run outside the reach of the city guards, so that both good and evil folks can join in the event). This is where players can spend the city tokens that they earn from city (adventuring or crafting) writs. There will be two new house items and one new armor crate per city, starting with the May 2018 Freeport City Fest

Occurring on the 20th of each month and running for 2 days, is the Moonlight Enchantments event, also known as the "grotto" or "mushroom rings" event. If you are already familiar with the event, and just want details on the lovely house items, the five grotto pages were revamped on April 19, 2018 with new images:

Past Events - Can Still Craft

These events included items that can still be crafted, provided you scribed the recipes, and have the primary ingredient, which dropped only during the event.

Past Events - Can Only Craft on Special Equipment

These items can only be crafted if you have access to the Frostfell Crafting Stations
