Black Friday Sale - When?

Despite having account for 5 years, I actually never played during Autumn before, so my question is - will there be Black Friday sale in gem shop? And when it starts/ends (assuming it is not just Friday itself).

What could go on sale, based on last year? I'm mostly interested in buying some gems and get few bank unlocks and char slots.

  • I'm not sure there's ever been a Black Friday Gem Store sale. Something may, or may not, go on sale that day.
    There's these, though: https://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Gem_Store#Special_sales

  • For what it's worth, I'm holding off on buying 9th & 10th bag slots til mid-January, just in case there are either Black Friday or White Wintersday sales. I wish I would be more helpful with details :/

    ANet hasn't been particularly consistent about when sales start|stop nor whether they have them.

    I've been following particular items on the gem shop for the same 5 years; I've yet to detect a pattern.

    The sales schedule was posted on Guild Wars 2 Twitter:

    Would anyone be willing to paste text of what this twitter says about the sales schedule for those that do not/will not/cannot visit that site please?
    Thank you very much if someone does.

    WOW - Done with forums for good now! - Someone creates a thread about Pharus's light on crit effect asking if it is a bug - I get warned for being "off topic" for commenting how to use the search and pointing out threads discussing Pharus and it being an intended effect... Goodbye all. Happy gaming.

    @StinVec.3621 you don't need an account to see the twitter feed.

    There's also this image. (On twimg.com, rather than twitter.com, if that's any help.)

  • Does anyone know the server time these will go on sale? I want to make sure I am online to make some purchases.

  • Things change in the store at 9am Seattle time, which is noon EST.

    I'm so happy about the 5 free trans charges, lol. But still no Aetherblade armor skins. :( I would pay the full price for them!

  • Can the wings be dyed?

    Not as a backpack no, backpacks can't be dyed.

    What sleep is here? What dreams there are in the unctuous coiling of the snakes mortal shuffling. weapon in my hand. My hand the arcing deathblow at the end of all things. The horror. The horror. I embrace it. . .

    The Crystalline Dragon Wings glider cannot be dyed. Some gliders are dye-able and some aren't; if you look at the glider preview in your Hero panel, the ones that can be dyed are labeled as such when you click on their description.

    As other people said they usually change at 9am Seattle time. But based on previous sales these offers will all stay up for at least 24 hours, so don't panic if you can't log in right when it's first offered, as long as you do it within a day of the offer starting you'll be able to get them.

    You got back up, rise up, shine on, keep on fighting, the war is almost done...But then I hear you're gone.
    I feel, when the lights go down, you are still here, all you hold dear remains.
    Your star never fades."
