Guild Wars 7th Anniversary Birthday Celebration!
From April 24th, 2012 To May 8th, 2012 (15-Day Special Event!)

GW.com 7th-Anniversary Celebration page:
http://www.guildwars.com/events/ingame/seven_year_anniversary/

Quote :
Game On!

We’re commemorating our seventh anniversary with a huge party in Shing Jea Monastery and outposts all over Tyria.

Are you light on your feet? Speak with Captain Li Sah and test your dodgeball skills in the Dragon Arena! Do you feel the need for speed? Speak to the Rollerbeetle Trainer and take a spin in Rollerbeetle Racing. You’ll find both these NPCs in Lion’s Arch, Shing Jea Monastery, Kamadan, and the Great Temple of Balthazar.

The fun doesn’t stop there. During the festival, keep your eyes peeled for more special drops than you’ve ever seen before. And be sure to stop by Embark Beach to talk to Ceira, Sworn to Fire. During the celebration, she’ll be distributing the limited-edition Ranger pet: the Hound of Balthazar.

Thanks for Seven Years of Support!

Thanks again to each and every one of you for your continued support over the years. We wish you the best of adventures in the year ahead. Enjoy the festivities!

Anniversary Updates:

* Made preparations for the Guild Wars 7th anniversary celebration.

* Elite Xunlai Bakery Agents, flush with pride after their careful placement of sprinkles, have assumed control of Birthday Cupcake distribution and are en route to their party destinations.

* Ceira, Sworn to Fire, has returned from another expedition bearing gifts from the gods: Hounds of Balthazar Ranger pets for all who visit her in Embark Beach during the celebration.

It seems that the Hounds of Balthazar is in the menagerie for 20 gold coins. I'm not sure though as i don't have 20 to spare.

John Stumme wrote:
Hold off on buying it. It only exists as a purchasable option for people that miss the Anniversary. Ceira will be handing them out for free during the event once it starts.




Here is a pic of the Hound Of Balthazar pet which was posted in the Guru discussion thread:

Most/All Consumables Are Dropping!

People in that Guru discussion thread are claiming that EVERYTHING is dropping - ie. ALL consumable drops. All con drops + Rollerbeetle Racing + Dragon Arena + Boardwalk open. Holy christ.

You can unlock the (Hounds of Balthazar) pet in Embark Beach right now. I got mine. You can find it in the menagerie after unlocking it in NE cave next to lava pit.

My god. Even Double Kurz/Lux faction has been turned on for this event (according to someone in the Guru thread). Shocked

You logged off of GW as I was saying hi to you, Link.

BTW, vaettir farming is a joke. Every single mob drops something. It's insane.

Yeah, people on Guru are confirming that it's double faction, double rep points, double SS/LB, double XP for skillcaps, double lucky/unlucky points. Maybe more. All for the next two weeks. My god. The Hound of Balthazar pet looks to be the only new thing coming with the update (unless 7th birthday gifts are something new), but for ANet having limited resources and subsequently having to recycle old content, this is probably the best route they could've taken.

Well, they're not new.


[Guru] What did you get from your 7th year birthday present?


7th birthday gifts can be any of the previous year 1-5 minipets (don't think year 6 tonics are part of the equation). The theory going around Guru is that your account gets a mini that hasn't been dedicated in your HoM, but as of yet there isn't enough evidence to prove or disprove this. Could also be that you only get one of the non-white minis as part of the year 7 batch.

We'll see what the real deal is as more and more of the year 7 gifts are dispersed...

There are other minis than previous-year minis. From the above-linked Guru thread:

John Stumme wrote:
There are some minis that are not repeats from the presents of previous years - they're just rare. Of course, with my luck being what it is, I pulled a Miniature Elf. XP

I wonder if ANet - in all of their indifference to the ultimate fate of GW1 - actually did what I suggested to Link the other night in-game and made the Asian/limited minis part of the drops?

I've been watching the Guru 7th birthday gift thread closely, and thus far there haven't been ANY confirmed & verifiable instances of someone getting a rare/limited mini from a 7-year present.

Starting to think it's hogwash.

Scratch that. That Guru 7th Birthday Present thread is full of talk now that rare minis are, in fact, coming out of 7th year gifts. Confirmed Oni, talk of Shiro'kens, etc..

Naturally, all of the Guru e-peeners are pissed. Fuck them though. Seriously - caring about in-game wealth in a game that they won't even be playing 6 months from now. Christ. Rolling Eyes

Hi everyone,
+
+
We noticed a lot of heated debates about what kind of minis dropped from the Seventh Year Birthday Presents, and some players suggested that this generated an unhealthy amount of speculation. Given that the speculations are only about the rarest minis, we've decided to share with you the information about these minis and the wiki seemed like the best way to do that. So here is the list of rarest minis dropping from the Seventh Year Birthday Presents:
+
* Oni
+
* Naga Raincaller
+
* Zhed Shadowhoof
+
* Shiro'ken Assassin
+
* Vizu
+
+
Thanks. --[[User:Stephane_Lo_Presti|'''Stephane Lo Presti''']] [[User talk:Stephane_Lo_Presti|''talk'']] 18:37, 31 May 2012 (UTC)
