Regina | ArenaNet zegt: It's this weekend. Regina | ArenaNet zegt: It will end on St Patricks day. So yes it will start friday. Death Slighertalk: Death Sligher 20:29, 11 March 2009 (UTC)
Except as the Log-In Announcement leads one to believe it is on this minute, instead of beginning Friday. Clarrification?? MystiLefemEle 07:45, 12 March 2009 (UTC)

2010 Weekend Event[edit]

Drops started 1 hour early today, a Lucky day Mar Talk Master 19:14, 12 March 2010 (UTC)

why does this event end the day before St. Patricks Day this year? ~Syn

Because no one on the Live Team knows how to extend the duration from last year. User Felix Omni Signature.pngelix Omni 02:09, 13 March 2010 (UTC)
Looks like, with exception to the first year, they are keeping to a 4 day duration... But, yes, through the 17th would be keeping it festive spirit.MystiLefemEle 07:02, 16 March 2010 (UTC)
And there were drops today, Extra Lucky weekend. This directly contradicts the log-in screen. So, it would appear the live team is just fine with extending into Feb 17 :D Mar Talk Master 17:15, 17 March 2010 (UTC)
The screen says "Through 11:59 PM Pacific (-7 GMT) on Tuesday, March 16, you will be able to gather Shamrock Ale and Four-Leaf Clovers as random drops throughout all the lands of Tyria. Enjoy the weekend, and remember: think green!" So we all win! Mar Talk Master 17:19, 17 March 2010 (UTC)
Still have Lucky drops. Way to get your dates right anet. The decline 20:39, 17 March 2010 (UTC)
Just noticed that too, lol. -- Magic User Magic Icon.jpg Talk 23:24, 17 March 2010 (UTC)
So does event end at 11:59pm PST today or is it unknown? Sardaukar User Sardaukar sig.png 01:19, 18 March 2010 (UTC)
My partner & I have been farming the last 15 minutes, haven't seen any drop. Could just be us, though. Lady Chani 07:15, 18 March 2010 (UTC)
Same here. I think it's over now. Hopefully the schedule will be right next year. Sardaukar User Sardaukar sig.png 07:28, 18 March 2010 (UTC)

There after mee lucky charms 12:55, 10 March 2011 (UTC)


Why does the duration increase by one day each event? Started off 1 ½ days, then 2 ½, then 3 ½, then 4 ½, and now 5 ½.

Cause the event always starts on the Friday before St. Patrick's Day. --Silver Edge 05:29, 16 March 2011 (UTC)
But why does it last a day longer each year?
Because March 17 has been on a different day of the week in the five years that the Lucky weekend has been held. Unlike the American Thanksgiving (Special Treats Weekend) and Easter (Sweet Treat Weekend) which occur on a specific day of the week, St. Patrick's Day always occurs on a specific date (March 17). --Silver Edge 05:41, 16 March 2011 (UTC)
Kinda ruins the point of it being a lucky 'weekend', when for the past few years it's been a lot more than 1 weekend. They should have made it the weekend closest to St Patricks Day or something.


Noted lack of drops starting 12:00am PDT March 17th. Not 11:59pm as stated in the login. --Axis 07:13, 17 March 2011 (UTC)

Why on hell they didnt covered St Patrick day this year ? wtf ... 07:43, 17 March 2011 (UTC) nobody
Yeah, looks like the drops stopped early again ;( MystiLefemEle 11:52, 17 March 2011 (UTC)
Yep .... once again .... would have been better if they'd just planned for it to run thru the coming weekend. Then, if it stopped early, no one would be fussing. Algonda 16:10, 17 March 2011 (UTC)

as far as I recall it was the same on canthan new year, maybe somebody saw the 23:59pm and corrected it to 12:00am to make it a less complicated number without thinking about the date needing a correction to the 18th too to make it run the announced time frame. Anyway, would be nice if the announced time would be more reliable. [[ 19:53, 17 March 2011 (UTC)]]

Fixed to last until tomorrow: Feedback_talk:Game_updates/20110317 --Axis 00:05, 18 March 2011 (UTC)
its now past the time its supposed to have stopped with the update and im still getting drops, anyone know exactly when there gonna stop.Spark-TBa 20:43, 18 March 2011 (UTC)
ok ignore me, i missread the chat on the update page :PSpark-TBa 20:51, 18 March 2011 (UTC)

Name change[edit]

I suggest we move this to Lucky Weekend, since Sweet Treat Weekend and Special Treats Weekend both have the W in weekend capitalized. -- User Kirbman sig.png Kirbman 01:47, 7 October 2011 (UTC)

This should be moved back to Lucky weekend, because, unlike Sweet Treat Weekend and Special Treats Weekend, "Lucky Weekend" is not the official name used in the log-in screen announcement or in-game, and other unofficial terms use lowercase. --Silver Edge 06:57, 7 March 2012 (UTC)

GvG drops[edit]

These existed too but I forgot to document them due to busy times in 2011 but these were also introduced before the zaishen strongboxes were introduced. Numbers remain the same at 10 as you can see from the screenshot below. As with the Halloween, Wintersday and Special Treats weekends, drops remain rating indiscriminate unlike the GvG strongboxes Lucky Weekend GvG drops 2012.jpg.

2012 Event[edit]

Seems the event ended one day early again.MystiLefemEle 09:39, 15 March 2012 (UTC)

Argh! Yes. /fistshake Sardaukar User Sardaukar sig.png 14:51, 15 March 2012 (UTC)
Yup. Does someone at ANET need a lesson in AM vs PM? 14:58, 15 March 2012 (UTC)
Oh, and a lesson on when Wednesday ends and Thursday begins? 15:02, 15 March 2012 (UTC)

Lucky/Unlucky Points[edit]

One would think that this event would also trigger double lucky/unlucky points. Anyone know if this is the case? Lord Flynt 14:54, 13 March 2013 (UTC)

2013 Event[edit]

Well, well... Once again, 24 hrs early. Seriously, if you say one thing, do it, not be early. How about a 24 hr extension, since this is becomming chronic.MystiLefemEle 08:04, 14 March 2013 (UTC)

I just got a Shamrock Ale drop two minutes ago. --Silver Edge 08:09, 14 March 2013 (UTC)
I'll re-enter the Spectral farm and see if any drop. TY for the possible heads up.MystiLefemEle 08:11, 14 March 2013 (UTC)
And another Shamrock Ale just dropped. --Silver Edge 08:31, 14 March 2013 (UTC)
Nope, multiple runs, different districts even and no drops of clovers or ale since after midnight. MystiLefemEle 08:58, 14 March 2013 (UTC)
That could be bad luck on your part. The fact that other people are seeing drops kind of disproves the "ended early" theory, no? -Auron 09:41, 14 March 2013 (UTC)
Could have been for Silver Edge was in a area prior to stroke of midnight, thus would still have drops till exit. The festives stopped after midnight in Jaga Moraine(sp) / Spectral farm, so, niet.MystiLefemEle 10:05, 14 March 2013 (UTC)
No items for me or my teammates today. Silver Edge, do you remember if the scenario MystiLefemEle described might've been the case? Steve1 22:26, 14 March 2013 (UTC)
That might have been the case as I was in a vanquish that I started before 11:59 PM, 13 March Pacific (06:59, 14 March 2013 UTC) when I observed those drops. --Silver Edge 05:40, 15 March 2013 (UTC)
