The Lost Shores Release Schedule

November 6, 2012 - 4:17am -- Xerin
The Lost Shores

Martin Kerstein took to the official forums a couple of hours ago to provide an overview of how the Lost Shores reveal will pan out. Beginning on Friday 16th November at 20:00GMT (noon PST) the event will begin in Lion’s Arch.  On Saturday 17th at the same time, a further phase will begin.  The final event will cultimate in a big Finale on Sunday 18th November.  Out of all the event chains, this will be onetime only and will run for several hours.   He further goes on to state that although there will be other content to enjoy if you miss this one time event, it will only run once.

You can find the full quote from Martin below, or visit his post here.

Something is stirring in the Sea of Sorrows – and we want to make sure that you are not missing out, so here is a schedule (without spoilers) for you, so you can plan ahead:

  • On Friday November 16th at noon PST (20:00 GMT) the weekend will kick off with an Event in Lion’s Arch that you don’t want to miss. This will trigger events in other parts of Tyria as well.
  • *On Saturday November 17th at noon PST (20:00 GMT), another phase will kick in.
    Each phase is triggered by a special event, but you will be able to enjoy additional content afterwards even if you cannot make the kick-off time. There is one exception:

The event will culminate in a big Finale on Sunday November 18, make sure you will not miss it. This will be a onetime only event chain that will run multiple hours, and it will kick off at noon PST (20:00 GMT). Again, this will only run once, so make sure you will be there! There will be plenty of content available to enjoy that will remain permanently in the world as a result of the outcome of this event on Sunday.

We will give you more details once we get closer to the event, but wanted to give you an early heads up so you can plan accordingly

1-time events

So, are there 3 one-time events (one each evening at 8pm GMT)? Or is just the Sunday night the one-time event? Will it matter if we miss, for example, the Saturday night? Or will we be missing a big chunk of content then?

One time event on the order

One time event on the order of Halloween: cool.  We got roughly a week to experience it before it went "poof".

One time event for a couple of hours: stupid as hell.  Some of us work on the weekends. Anet = dickheads.
