Imperial Crane Raptor Skin
I once heard a scholar propose the idea that Canthan moas and Elonian raptors share a common ancestor. Ridiculous! But then again, the way that crane roars… Hmm…
This item will permanently add a new appearance option for your raptor to your account wardrobe.
Lunar Rabbit Helm and Stompers Package
Now that trade and travel are once again open between Cantha and the rest of Tyria, we’ve been getting some interesting imports in. The Canthan New Year does seem to bring out the animal lovers in all of us!
You can use these items to apply a new appearance to your helm and boots. The skins will become permanently available in your account wardrobe and can be applied as many times as you wish with Transmutation Charges.
For the next two weeks, we’re offering a 20% discount on Character Slot Expansions. This item will add one additional character slot to your account, allowing you to try out new playable races and professions.

The annual Lunar New Year festival is in full swing in Divinity’s Reach! Tyrians are celebrating the beginning of the Year of the Rabbit with fireworks, games, delicious Canthan food, and prizes. This yearly festival is now live and will be available until January 31. You can check out all the details in the full release notes on our official forums.
This festival is accessible to players of any level. Even if you’re brand new to the game, you can easily take part in our Lunar New Year activities and earn new cosmetic unlocks, utility items, and more! Read on for a quick rundown of the activities you can participate in during this festival and the rewards you can earn!
Lunar New Year activities will reward you with Essences of Luck, items that can either be consumed to permanently increase your account’s magic find attribute or be used as a currency at Lunar New Year festival vendors at the Crown Pavilion in Divinity’s Reach. You’ll also earn other currencies—such as the Token of the Celestial Champion from the Celestial Challenge—that can be exchanged for Lucky Envelopes.
Lucky Envelopes are containers that are affected by your account’s magic find attribute. Increase your magic find for chances at better rewards when opening them. Lucky Envelopes can contain additional Essences of Luck, valuable trophies that you can sell to vendors for cash, and a chance at rare weapons, armor, and more. This year, every Lucky Envelope has a chance to grant you the Lucky Rabbit Lantern. Get that magic find up and open as many envelopes as you can!
Completing daily and annual achievements will allow you to earn new weapons, armor, and more! Check the Achievements pane in your Hero panel and navigate to the Daily Lunar New Year and Festivals sections for more information.
Where to Go
The Crown Pavilion in Divinity’s Reach is your hub for Lunar New Year festivities. Check your in-game mail for an Invitation to Lunar New Year and double-click the item to teleport instantly to Divinity’s Reach.
Speak to the Celestial Challenge Attendant at the Crown Pavilion in Divinity’s Reach to begin the Celestial Challenge, a series of activities that will require you to take down enemies, race through checkpoints, perform feats of jumping mastery, and more. The more activities you successfully complete during the event, the greater your rewards at the end.
Dragon Ball Arena
Speak to Finola at the Crown Pavilion in Divinity’s Reach to enter the Dragon Ball Arena. This dodgeball-like PvP game mode is a race to the finish, with the first team of five players to reach five hundred points claiming victory. Collect power-ups throughout the arena to gain access to new skills, zip around the arena with zip pads and jump pads, and master the art of the Dragon Sphere.
Race around Divinity’s Reach! You don’t need to have any mounts unlocked to take place in this race—a nearby rental service is available to rent a raptor for just 10 silver.
Speak to the firecracker-lighting NPC at the Crown Pavilion in Divinity’s Reach to start this seasonal adventure. Use your mastery of the world to quickly navigate through the streets of Divinity’s Reach and light all the firecrackers! Gliding, mounts, anything goes—just don’t use any waypoints, or your progress will be reset!
