Guild Wars 2’s First Holiday Event

Jon and I have been playing Guild Wars 2 for quite awhile. He’s a Human Ranger, while I’m an Asuran Elementalist. We are both enjoying the game (especially the level scaling so that we can party together successfully, even when we are a few levels apart) and looking forward to its recently announced first major event. And what might that first major event be? Why, Halloween, of course!
