NCSoft and the Guild Wars team are inviting all players to log in for a sixth birthday bash at the Shing Jea Monastery from now through May 6th. The team has six weeks of anniversary events scheduled for players including Facebook contests, mission pack and character slot sales, and new hi-res textures added to the game.
In addition, NCsoft and ArenaNet will also be releasing a special Anniversary Update that brings players both additional content as well as the exciting introduction of Flux. Players may remember the ill-conceived actions of the Lunatic Court as they tried to free the Mad King during Halloween. While these events have long passed, the after-effect of this plot has caused instability to seep into the land causing fluctuations. This Flux will come and go monthly and cause alterations to PvP that will encourage players to alter their playing style in order to take advantage of the current Flux.
