Halloween celebrations at Lion's Arch

Halloween comes to the world of Guild Wars every year, on October 31st. Certain towns were decorated with deadly decorations and ghastly scenery.


From the Guild Wars Event Page and Game Updates:

Beginning of the Halloween event[edit]

When the moon rises high over Lion's Arch
And the wind moans through the most hollow of eves
Shutter your homes this holiday
Steer clear of the shadows
For on this night, they say,
A long-addled spirit returns from the grave
Pumpkin upon his head,
A wicked deed within his heart
A pint of witch's brew for all those who misbehave
Heed these words, all ye who dare enter here:
Bind your souls to the mortal realm
For the regent of madness draws near.

Ending the Halloween event[edit]

As the Mad King's laughter fades
And calm settles over Lion's Arch
While peace comes to Droknar's Forge
And the Primeval Kings return to slumber
We bid farewell to Halloween
Until the coming year.

Decorated Locations[edit]


  • Squash Serum: Swallowing this potion might give you a big head. A big, orange one, that is...
  • Witch's Brew: One sip of this potent brew will set your world spinning 'round and 'round.
  • Ghost-in-the-Box: Feeling brave? Open this mysterious box to receive a spooky surprise.
  • Vial of Absinthe: Drink this beverage to be engulfed in a ghoulish flame.
