    I'd like to see a Lunar New Year reward track too

    Isn't it only there for 1 week though? Seems a bit pointless.

    Ends on 7 12 February, so 2.5 weeks.

    edit: I apologize. 7 February was the end of LNY 2018; thanks to @Randulf.7614 for correcting me (below).

    Oh I don't have enough gold to stockpile envelopes for that. Guess I'll do a mid festival opening.

    Check your TP purchase offers; maybe you can cancel some stuff?
    (Or check your bank's collection tab; maybe you can sell stuff from there.)

    Nah I'll just do a silverwastes for the buff and max out MF halfway through, it's not a big deal I just have to do a harvest sooner than I wanted. Thanks for the info btw.

    It's a space filler festival!

    There isn't even a "Do 3 dailies for 5 days for THIS SHINY NEW ?" achievement, the lucky envelopes are limited if you've completed all the past years achievements already and the new mini achievement can be completed in a hour, what would you expect to see in a reward track? Buy 16 Gold envelopes everyday like everyone else and hope your return is better than your investment.

    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. . .

    Do you not know how reward tracks work? For example you would get envelopes etc. for reward points. They have them for both wintersday and halloween so.

    Understanding how rewards tracks work and understanding why this festival doesn't have a reward track are two different things. But, since you asked, yes I know how reward tracks work and since I've played wvw well before reward tracks were a thing I know that sometimes (as in this case) pve is your only option :)

    The other festivals have things that just drop. This one they cost a gold each. That's why no reward track. If you want free ones do guild missions and pick up a couple from the guild trader.

  • DanAlcedo.3281DanAlcedo.3281 Member ✭✭✭✭

    That would make WvW actually rewarding.

    Not gonna happen.

  • Cause the lunar year festival is THE festival that needs some improvement yet compared to the others ... needs a bit of investment from Anet and some genious ideas (one should be enough)

    like celestial avatar such as GW factions or parades i don't know ... making a disney-ich feeling LUL something more grandiose.
