Why are you guys taking so long?

Taking so long to do what, open a page for this year? When ArenaNet have provided us with no information on what will he happening? When there is no info on the log in screen or on forums (apprently Regina has mentioned it on Guru, but i havent looked yet)? --Burning Freebies 15:37, 10 April 2009 (UTC)

Well, if you check the recently easter events, there have been hold during these days, and as it should fit this weekend, just wondering. Anyhow, so I guess there won't be any event at all this weekend? And it's everything beacuse of the huge storage update? There IS stuff dropping this week. I got a chocolate bunny. probably the same as the last two easter events. 20:09, 10 April 2009 (UTC) Yarp, event's on now. Sadly they didn't even tell us this..

Duration of 2009?[edit]

I rec'd at least one egg after midnight on Sun (12:12 AM Mon morn 13 Apr, PDT). Tennessee Ernie Ford 07:12, 13 April 2009 (UTC)

Season of Zephyr[edit]

Season of the Zephyr—often associated with matrimony, courtship, and fertility—so this odd occurrence may not be a simple coincidence

Yep. Gwen and Keiran are going to test The Big Bang Theory, amirite? ...i am right... --Ravencroft0 08:22, 2 April 2010 (UTC)

Already started 2012[edit]

yea we were in a DD run and they started dropping out of nowhere, so excited! 20:10, 2 April 2012 (UTC)
Got an egg after killing the Broodmother just now. Do Drake kabobs and chocolate go well together? User Karuro Icon.png Karuro 21:44, 2 April 2012 (UTC)

One scale in the T2 quest dropped both an egg and a bunny for me (as well as gold). Anyone else had this? Page suggests only one or the other should drop. Robdalf 12:32, 3 April 2012 (UTC)

I've had this happen, actually. Not off of that specific mob, but off of others, yes. And during other special drop weekends, etc. :) Always neat to see. Kazera Wolfsbane 19:48, 3 April 2012 (UTC)


Why is this Darko, Shining and Diablo trivia on here? Seriously ... I read stories, articles, and works of literature that have the words "and" and "the" in them. Maybe the Scribe's article is referencing THOSE, too. Why is it assumed that every little phrase has some reference that should be noted under a trivia heading? 19:37, 4 April 2012 (UTC)

Haven't a clue but i can tell you that the "stay a while and listen" quote is wrong by about 150 years, it was a staple of horror stories that were written in the Victorian era. The orator would start off a show using those exact words. But people seem to think that only the most recent reference is the most appropriate. 01:14, 5 April 2012 (UTC)

Exactly, and "all work and no play ..." was not an invention of Stephen King. 01:56, 5 April 2012 (UTC)

I can tell you that the quote "Why are you wearing that stupid bunny suit?" followed by "Why are you wearing that stupid man suit?" is verbatim dialogue from Donnie Darko. The mention of the bunny wearing a 'suit' implicates the quote's shift in context. In addition, nobody is saying Stephen King "invented" the line "All work and no play..." however, for the majority of the first world/American/English-speaking/ad nauseum. population, the term is only familiar because of its usage in the Shining, and thus, any references to said film point to Stephen King by assocation and likely reference. I find the Donnie Darko reference funny, but I do question whether or not it's important. 10:11, 5 April 2012 (UTC)

Trivia isn't supposed to be important. I think important information is left in the notes section. Furthermore, I fail to see what importance this discussion has. If you disagree with the trivia being correct, maybe state some concrete examples of why the story is not referencing said movies, not just "if that's trivia, why isn't this trivia". If you fail to see the (in my opinion) obvious references to said cultmovies, then it is not necessarily because everyone else is wrong. Gaudy Gourd God 10:56, 5 April 2012 (UTC)
Just because someone doesn't recognize the "obvious reference," which IMO isn't obvious doesn't make them wrong, either. If the reference is verbatim and concrete as is apparently the Darko reference then by all means it should stay. Perhaps it should be noted in its entirety. My original query was partly out of curiosity and to discover reasons why the trivia is there. I thank for clarifying the Darko trivia. The reference to "all work and no play ..." being attributable to The Shining because of the's argument that it is the only reason the "majority of the first world" would recognize it, however, does not seem valid. The saying has been around since before its first appearance in print in the 1600s. From personal experience I know plenty of people of all ages, races, and creeds who know the saying but have never seen this movie or read the book. To say it is a reference to The Shining loosely attributes its origin to Stephen King and that is not the case. Why should it be referencing The Shining? It's been around for 400+ years. While I appreciate your input, Gaudy, if you fail to see the importance of the discussion I wonder why are you joining it? (That's not a flame, btw.) FWIW, there is no such thing as an "obvious reference" in a cult movie; isn't that part of what makes it a cult movie? 20:27, 5 April 2012 (UTC)
There are many discussions on this wiki, regarding Trivia information for each page. (My most recent find is the Goren page, where it states how Goren means "Moon" in hebrew. And in my opinion, that's a load of bs that should be removed). However, Guild Wars is filled almost to the top with references to popular culture, and saying that "everything doesn't have to be a reference to something" is absurd in it's truth, because everything isn't. If something is a reference, then there must be proof that what is being referenced is in fact the source. And this proof might need to include some sort of relation, unlike how Goren means "moon" in hebrew. If Goren was from the moon, or wore armor with various moon symbols, or something like that, then it would be worthy of trivia. In this situation though, I'd say that the Donnie Darko reference is still obvious. You've convinced me that the Shining reference isn't obvious, unless someone sees the need to argue how and why it is a reference to the Shining and not some other story. And I never knew the slightest about the Diablo reference, because I never played the game much. And I don't think the line is unique in any way, and it would most likely not be possible to convince many that Diablo is referenced through such a common line. Finally, starting out with the type of arguments you did, as to why the Trivia clearly isn't Trivia, was not an impressive attempt, unless perhaps you were seeking a high trolling score. Your latest post seems to indicate that you might have had a more important point to starting this section. So if you were to propose a complete removal of trivia to this wiki, I wouldn't hesitate to back it up, since it cause so much harm without having any importance or relevence to the game or the wiki at all. One more thing: not sure I understand your last line. I figured cult-movies had been given such a genre-classification because they were, amongst other things, the predecessor of various quotes, referenced in other media.

Sweet Treats Week and Anniversary Celebration 2014[edit]

Did the Anniversary Celebration start early this year? It seems the PvE mobs drop the items from both events at the moment. Apart from Golden Eggs and Chocolate Bunnies, I've obtained Victory Token, Krytan Brandy, Honeycomb, Birthday Cupcake, Sparkler, Bottle Rocket.

See Anniversary Celebration#2014. --Silver Edge 04:41, 11 April 2014 (UTC)
