Super Adventure Festival 2023 Begins Today

Our beloved Super Adventure Festival has begun in Rata Sum! Everyone is welcome to join this fun adventure in a virtual world designed by Moto. This yearly festival is now live and will be available until April 18. You can check out all the details in the full release notes on our official forums.

Super Adventure Festival is accessible to players of any level. Even if you’re brand new to the game, you can easily take part in all the activities! Read on for a quick rundown of the activities you can participate in during this festival and the rewards you can earn!

Where to Go

The Super Adventure Festival is located in Rata Sum. Check your in-game mail for an Invitation to the Super Adventure Festival and double-click the item to teleport instantly to the Super Adventure Box Hub. You can also travel to the Magustan Court Waypoint, which is conveniently located right next to the Super Adventure Box in Creator’s Commons.


What to Do

When you enter the Super Adventure Box, you will have a different skill set. The new skill bar will help you navigate this different game mode. While you’re inside the box, you won’t take damage from falling, and you can’t use gliders or mounts. But you’ll find that you’re much bouncier than you usually are!

There are two worlds you can trek through, and two alternate gameplay modes—Exploration Mode and Tribulation Mode—in addition to Normal Mode. If you like a laid-back adventure, you can pick Exploration Mode, which will give you some assistance traversing jumping puzzles. Normal Mode is perfect for people needing a little edge with their fun—unless you love a punishing challenge. For that, choose Tribulation Mode…at your peril.

The journey begins in World 1. You are sent on a heroic path to save Princess Miya. Your starting weapon is a stick, but you’ll be able to buy other combat options and tools from friendly shopkeepers found in the worlds you’re exploring. Make sure to keep an eye out for little wooden doors!

When you obtain new weapons from merchants inside the Super Adventure Box, they’ll give you new ways to destroy enemies and objects. You can even use bombs to find hidden rooms packed with baubles.

Bounce your way into a sunny glade, and don’t forget to fell every enemy on your way! You’ll need all the baubles you can get your hands on. Every time you get hit by an enemy you will lose a portion of your hearts, so be sure to dodge. When your hearts are empty, you’ll lose one of your lives. As long as you have lives left, you’ll revive at the last checkpoint you reached.

If by chance you have no lives left, worry not; just purchase a Continue Coin from Moto. Just don’t mind the lava.



Trade 250 baubles to the Super Adventure Box Trader located next to Moto to obtain the festival currency, Bauble Bubbles! Weapons, armor, utility items, minatures, and many more things are available in exchange for Bauble Bubbles; talk to the trader NPCs just outside the Super Adventure Box or in the Hub.

There are plenty of new rewards to earn this year. Add a mace, rifle, and dagger to your collection of Retro-Forged weapons and a Mini Adventure Boxer and Mini Blue Bauble to your menagerie of miniatures. Craft new guild hall items to create your own Super Adventure world!

Complete the (Annual) Super Adventure Box Nostalgia achievement to earn classy Generation One weapon skins and Powered Gloves. You can find them in the Achievement tab of the Hero panel under Festivals.


Test Zone

This year, Moto is inviting heroes to the Test Zone,* a new area he’s working on! The choya miners are still carving it out, so it’s not completely finished—but Moto will welcome your help testing the area that is available! To visit the Test Zone, pick up the note on the door of the World 3 House in the Hub and follow the instructions. Have fun!

*The Test Zone is presented as is and should not be viewed as World 3 confirmed, either express or implied. Moto, Lord Vanquish, and other residents of the Super Adventure Box will not be held liable for injuries sustained in the Super Adventure Box. Baubles not intended for human (or charr, asura, norn, or sylvari) consumption.

Your Day Will Be Fluffier with the Adorable Samoyed Jackal Skin

Before we cover this week’s new additions to the Gem Store, we want to take a minute to present some improvements we’re introducing.

Gem Store Structure

Over the last year, we’ve altered how we approach Gem Store item availability and sales schedules. We changed our Friday “Seasonal Swap” store updates, bringing a large selection of older items back to the store and putting popular items on sale more often on a seasonal rotation. We want to balance having as many items in the store as possible while also ensuring the store stays functional and navigable. We’re slowly working on increasing the number of available items.

Changes to Black Lion Statuettes

We’re starting this March by adding all existing Black Lion Exclusive items as permanent options from the Black Lion Statuette vendor. We’ve adjusted the number of statuettes required to purchase items across the board and will continue to update prices as we go.

When you open the Black Lion Statuette exchange interface, you’ll find three new tabs:

  • New Black Lion Chest Exclusives: Items in this category cost 60 statuettes.
  • Recent Black Lion Chest Exclusives: Items in this category cost 45 statuettes.
  • Vintage Black Lion Chest Exclusives: Items in this tab are priced according to their category. For example, weapon skins cost 25 statuettes.

Exclusive items will move down the lists of available stock and into the next tab as new items are introduced over time.


Fluffy Samoyed Jackal Skin

All your adventures are going to be sweeter when you’re riding a fluffy dog! This gentle Samoyed looks just like cotton candy. Bring many treats!

Eternal Fate Chest

Inside each Black Lion Chest, you’re guaranteed to find a Fine Black Lion Dye Canister—Green, a redeemable Black Lion Statuette, and two common items. You might also find something rarer in the fifth slot, like exclusive items, home instance nodes, and skins from the Draconic Weapon Collection and Endless Ocean Weapon Collection.

Exclusive Item: Fate Unraveling Sword Skin

Cut the thread that holds you back with a fate-blessed sword. Your time is now.

What’s in Stock

We’re refreshing our seasonal selection of finishers this week with a 20% discount.

Returning This Week

Gliders and backpack and glider combos are 30% off through March 6, Black Lion Keys are 20% off through March 2, and Shared Inventory Slots are 30% off from March 3 to 9. Grab these deals while they last!

March Sales Schedule

We’re kicking off this month with extraordinary spring sales! But before we give you the scoop, we want to tell you about some of the changes we’re making to our sales schedule. You can read about additional Gem Store improvements in the weekly Gem Store blog post.

March Sales Item Availability

We’ve heard the community’s feedback that the previous 24-hour Gem Store sales format made it too easy to miss the items you’re most interested in. This year, sale items will be available for several days, and some sale items will be offered for up to a full week. Barring a few exceptions, we will also be putting categories of items on sale together, including older items.

Black Lion Requisition Missions

Evon Gnashblade employs some of Tyria’s finest crafters, and demand for their work is exploding! The Black Lion Trading Company has an immediate need for raw materials to keep up with product orders. You can help—and collect valuable Black Lion goods as your fee.

Each week in March, Black Lion Requisition Officers will accept deliveries of various raw materials and reward you with goods like boosters and Black Lion Statuettes. Help meet the demand for multiple weeks to receive greater rewards, including a Black Lion Claim Ticket—and more!

Black Lion Requisition Officers will be stationed near Black Lion Traders in all major cities. Seek them out for instructions on how to get in on this deal.


March Sales

Read on to see what’s hot at the Black Lion Trading Company! Every week there’s something new at fantastic discounts. Enhance your adventures in Tyria with cosmetic skins for your wardrobe, convenient account upgrades, and more!

Log in and visit the Guild Wars 2 Gem Store during the sale to see the available items in each category.

Week 1
  • February 28–March 6: 30% Off All Gliders and Backpack and Glider Combos
  • February 28–March 2: 20% Off Black Lion Chest Keys

Continue the Guild Wars 2: End of Dragons Story Today in “What Lies Beneath”

“What Lies Beneath” Is Live

The Elder Dragon saga concluded with Guild Wars 2: End of Dragons™, and we’re ready to turn the page to the next chapter of the Guild Wars 2 story: “What Lies Beneath”! Rejoin your Friends’ Detective Agency allies—Detective Rama, his hat, and Gorrik—along with Xunlai Jade engineer Yao to investigate the dangers lurking deep in the Jade Sea and find the source of the jade mine workers’ corruption. In the brand-new map, Gyala Delve, you’ll discover a dark side of Cantha that you haven’t seen before!

This chapter is free to all owners of Guild Wars 2: End of Dragons forever. Unlike previous Living World releases, it can be unlocked at any time at no gem cost. You can learn more about this change in the latest studio update.

To begin this content, navigate to the story journal in your Hero panel, select “What Lies Beneath,” then click “Play This Episode.” You will receive a letter from Rama requesting your presence at the Red Duck Tea House.


Chapter Rewards

“What Lies Beneath” is jam-packed with Cantha-themed rewards! And there’s something for everyone. Take a look at some of the rewards in the list below:

  • Weapons
    • Luxon Hunter’s Weapon Set
    • Tahkayun’s Edge (Sword)

Soo-Won Legendary Variant Skin Collection

The final set of Aurene-based legendary weapon variant skins captures the beauty and power of the Elder Dragon Soo-Won. Speak with Leivas (located in Seitung Province, the Hall of Monuments, and Arborstone) after unlocking an Aurene-based legendary weapon to begin this collection! For more information, check out this blog post with details about the previous legendary variant skin collections.


World vs. World Objective Scaling Rewards

We released World vs. World Objective Scaling Rewards two weeks ago, and we’re continuing to roll out updates to those rewards. When you’re done saving Cantha (again), make sure to help your fellow world defenders on the battlefield!

And More!

We’re adding a much-requested quality-of-life feature in the options menu that will allow you to adjust the intensity of map-based environmental visual effects in your game client. If you set the Environment Zone Intensity value below the maximum, it will diminish certain types of effects in various areas throughout Tyria. For example, the visual impact of the Void particles in Dragon’s End can be reduced by lowering the slider.

Lastly, we’re celebrating the new chapter of Guild Wars 2: End of Dragons with our annual March sales in the Gem Store! Check out this month’s lineup of fantastic offers—including the new Black Lion Requisition Missions and improvements to the sales item availability —in this blog post.
