“Shadow of The Mad King” is an annual Guild Wars 2 Halloween event that has returned for 2015. The event began on October 23rd and will run for 2 weeks, ending on Wednesday, November 4th.

Tattered Bat Wings are a new Halloween item used to craft a bat-themed Ascended shoulder piece called “NightFury”. NightFury is not a traditional armor piece since it is only visible as an effect in the form of a bat swarm. When crafted it unlocks the skin for each armor weight. The final recipe currently costs well over 1000 gold to craft. You need to have level 450 in Armorsmith and 400 in Huntsman to make some items.
