The 1st day of April, known as April Fools' Day, was celebrated in Lion's Arch, Shing Jea Monastery and Kamadan, Jewel of Istan. In these towns, all player-controlled characters had their genders reversed (i.e. a male character would show up as a female in these towns, with the corresponding facial features, hairstyle and skin color, and vice versa). In addition to appearance, characters' emotes were also reversed.
- Many people liked their new appearances, so Gaile Gray said she would ask if an NPC could be added to change players' genders as they wish; however, Gaile mentioned that we would likely be unable to choose the face or the hair style. More on the Gaile Talk of the event.
- This event was not added in to the updates page; although, on the date they made the preparations for the free access event, there was an unusually long download amount and time. This is most likely when they added in the coding.
- In one of Gaile Gray's talks, she mentioned developers are mulling on making a gender-changing tonic.
