The Crown Pavilion returns with players battling hordes of foes and the Queen's Gauntlet was be available for more attempts to finally defeat Liadri the Concealing Dark. The festival ended on July 1 2014.

Please Join Me in Welcoming the Zepyrites [sic] Back to Lion's Arch
The Lion's Arch reconstruction effort is in full swing, but even with help from our friends and neighbors across Tyria, it's slow going.
Queen Jennah has offered her support, and our mercantile partners, the Zephyrites, are inbound to offer their support, renew their commitment to our shared trade agreement, and see Scarlet's devastation firsthand.
I want to provide the Zephyrites with the most prestigious reception I can muster, so I'm calling on heroes like you to join me in welcoming them back. I'd consider it a great favor if you and any of your adventuruing friends could join me in Lion's Arch to greet the Zephyrites.Thanks in advance. I look forward to your arrival.
