e5b94gw191-590x332.png

For the first time, ArenaNet is participating in the Mox Gauntlet, an annual board gaming tournament held at Mox Boarding House here in Bellevue, Washington! The Mox Gauntlet raises money to support local charities, and this year’s event will benefit El Centro de la Raza, the Center for People of All Races. This Seattle organization describes itself as “A voice and a hub for the Latino community as we advocate on behalf of our people and work to achieve social justice.”

Mike Zadorojny, Isaiah Cartwright, John Hargrove, and Steven Stadnicki will represent ArenaNet at the tournament all day on May 19. We’ll be hosting the event livestream on our official Twitch channel, so be sure to tune in for fun, celebration, and giveaways—including an original Guild Wars® Collector’s Edition, soundtracks for Guild Wars 2: Heart of Thorns™ and Guild Wars 2: Path of Fire™ on vinyl, other merchandise, and surprise items.

In the coming weeks, the competing teams will hone their gaming skills and call on the power of their communities to raise funds for this year’s chosen charity. To support our team, click here and make a donation!

Hum a Happy Tune with the Magnificent Hummingbird

  • Magnificent Hummingbird Skimmer Skin

ada99MTX_Hummingbird01-590x332.png

Some people believe hummingbirds are a sign of victory in battle and good fortune. Purchase this beautiful hummingbird skin directly—or unlock Black Lion Chests for a chance for it to drop—and then dart across the water in a flash. You can use this skin on skimmer mounts across your whole account.

Light in Darkness Chest

18538MTX_MiniSkimmer02-590x332.png

Even when it feels like the darkest moments are upon you, there is always a light to guide you. Inside each chest, you’re guaranteed to find a Mini Blue Skimmer Pup, a redeemable Black Lion Statuette, and two common items. You also have a chance to discover something rarer in the fifth slot, including exclusive items, glyphs, and skins from the Keepsake Weapon Collection and Chaos Weapon Collection.

Guaranteed Item: Mini Blue Skimmer Pup
A group of rays is called a fever, but there’s no need to worry about having too many of these adorable skimmer pups—head over to the Mystic Forge and combine them with some Unidentified Dyes to obtain a collection of pups in assorted colors and styles.
