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!

Tinkerfest 2024 runs from June 6 through June 19, 2024

Summer Jubilee 2024 runs during Tinkerfest, Scorched Sky and Oceansfull.

The Year of Darkpaw Crafter achievements and final reward are ONLY available in 2024!

Ongoing Permanently

All of the past Days of Summer (renamed "Panda, Panda, Panda!" in 2021) quests are permanently ongoing for members.

Members (only) may run these events once per account to unlock the vendor offerings for their entire account. (Some items are level locked and/or class locked, so not all alts will see the same items for sale.)

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. Starting with the June 2022 city fest in New Halas, there will be one new door and one new light per city festival. (More on those as they are released.)

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. The April 2021 update included 34 new items and 5 new collections!

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
