The Gigantic cats from previous year are still available and they can be seen via either the usage of the  Powerful Potion of Dredge Slaying.png Chatoyant Elixir or the new  Topaz Heart.png Chatoyant Lens added with the March 23, 2021 game update. Since the addition of the new trinket and a new merchant, they can now be seen even outside April Fools' event.

A special event "Choya Carnival!" was also available for 6 days where you can visit Choya Sage in Lion's Arch to learn more. Several choya also invaded Eye of the North, with some even dancing on the table.

Community Fools


The dark mode of the site was updated to resemble 90's websites with pastel and neon colors.
