Anyone knows why there are birthday cupcakes, honeycombs, hard apple ciders etc. dropped all over the place? Shouldn't Anniversary Celebration start on 22 April?

Glad to see that others are seeing this already too. Looks like Birthday celebration is waaaay early. Won't hear any complaints from me!

I'm almost thinking that it will be a month long thing and it was done on purpose, since I started noticing it at the beginning of the month.

yeah was kind of wondering if that is the case.......seem to remember a few years ago they had the birthday celebration for the whole month so perhaps they messed up with the automation and reverted back to that years codes.

(not complaining about it--just need to have time to play!!)

lets hope it is a month

i love these drops, and if its the whole month, we also get golden eggs through em (or havent you seen login announcement yet?)

i know many people who will be happy if its whole month (probably almost all GW's current players)

info about the golden egg event (made that name up here :P)
In 2014, the duration of the event will be increased to seven days.
in case you didnt know yet

ps. can anyone see if you can get the hound of balthazar again?
i have it, so cant check it out

almost forgot.... bosses might drop 50 point stuff

no eggs dropping, just party points (rockets, sparklers, etc), honeycombs, victory tokens, and the cupcakes that are supposed to be dropping. No I would not like a whole month of them, but I also have finished my party and sweet (and alcohol) titles on enough characters to not need them any more (golden eggs--yet would love them to drop for a whole month, but alas they are not dropping until the 10th).

found this posted on the wiki discussion:
Quote:
Looks like the internal schedule had a typo of 2 instead of 22. I'm checking with people to find out if I should turn it off until the intended date, but for now feel free to enjoy the early birthday celebration! - Joe Kimmes
...
Update: the plan is to fix the anniversary start date for next year and let players get the benefits of the mistake this year. Enjoy the extended birthday celebration! - Joe Kimmes
also noted in the same discussion:
Quote:
That is indeed super early. I've passed the report on to John Stumme and Joe Kimmes. Sadly, I was let go from ArenaNet this week, so I can't investigate it personally. Heck, maybe they turned them on for me. ~ Matthew Moore
sad to see Matthew go, but good to know that the celebration will go on the rest of the month...so enjoy it!!!

I'm not sure if this is relevant to the event, but bosses are dropping battle ice teas and party beacons. I've gotten 3 teas and 2 beacons so far and they drop along with other items from bosses.

I guess there's still two weeks before the game NPCs show up though.

yes bosses could drop those during the anniversary event: http://wiki.guildwars.com/wiki/Anniv...lebration#2014


and yeah, the boardwalk isnt open yet either (now that would be fun...20+ days of afk on the rings?)

Eggs and bunnies are now dropping along with the previous items. I'm surprised there isn't more favor by now.
