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.

Current/Upcoming Events!

Frostfell 2018 will run from December 4, 2018 (after morning patch) through January 3, 2019 (with morning patch)

Against the Elements expansion prelude event will hit the live servers on Sept. 13. (There is currently no stated end date for this event. Kander said it would be there after the expansion launch, but not for how long.)

Days of Summer 2018 started Aug. 21, 2018 and will unlock a new quest once per week every week. There is no end date for obtaining/completing the quests, only an unlock date for each new quest.

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
