A recent forum post by Martin Kerstein, head of Global Community for Guild Wars 2, has detailed event plans for the upcoming content patch "The Lost Shores". While no specifics have been given as of what to expect in this very mysterious update, the forum post has detailed the event timings for those who are needing to place it in their calendar.
Something is stirring in the Sea of Sorrows – and we want to make sure that you are not missing out, so here is a schedule (without spoilers) for you, so you can plan ahead:
On Friday November 16th at noon PST (Saturday 17th at 6AM AEST) the weekend will kick off with an Event in Lion’s Arch that you don’t want to miss. This will trigger events in other parts of Tyria as well.
On Saturday November 17th at noon PST (Sunday 18th at 6AM AEST), another phase will kick in. Each phase is triggered by a special event, but you will be able to enjoy additional content afterwards even if you cannot make the kick-off time. There is one exception:
The event will culminate in a big Finale on Sunday November 18, make sure you will not miss it. This will be a one time only event chain that will run multiple hours, and it will kick off at noon PST (Monday 18th at 6AM AEST). Again, this will only run once, so make sure you will be there! There will be plenty of content available to enjoy that will remain permanently in the world as a result of the outcome of this event on Sunday.
Recently players have been noticing new posters appearing in the Lion's Arch hub, which when deciphered are mentioning sea creatures, boats and islands. Players are also noticing beached whales along the coast of Lion's Arch, pointing even more evidence towards some form of ocean involved content.
