Default Official Canthan New Year District Hosting List

Seeing that lots of guilds like to host districts for Canthan New Year we would like to make a list of those guilds and where they plan on hosting at what time if they so choose to post. So please post here if you are going to host a district for this event.

Dont Play With Fire will be hosting the Canthan New Year for the first time this year. We have been farming for weeks to help bring you a smashing Canthan New Year! Throughout the day, we plan to be hosting districts, guarenteeing the best possible outcome at the end. When it's that time where the Celestrial Ox comes to visit Shing Jea, we will be hosting 2 districts, 1 European, and most likely 1 American. We shall announce the numbers of these districts nearer the time

So, how can YOU get involved?

If you would like to donate some ingredients to us you are more than welcome to do so, feel free to pm Hara Makoto in game. We are also likely to be throwing a few activities in as well, with some prizes, although this is yet to be confirmed . I will post details of this later on when we have got some organised side activities later on, such as a quiz.

So, when will this be happening?!

We will be hosting districts throughout the day, as listed above, we will be altering between districts, so that people can not camp out in districts afk and simply reap in benifits. We want people in the districts to be getting involved!

Thanks, I hope to see you there, and watch this thread as more details are posted! See you on February 1st!
This should just about cover Fires canthan new year intentions.

Fire intend to host EED14 atleast for the 1st celebration!

Its now really a guild thing, but its a district event.

Chef Freebies Canthan New Year cookalong


Canthan New Year is all about pleasing the years celestial animal with a 5 courses menu. So why not have a world renouned chef host an event?


Be prepared for lots of fun and games. There will be a few party classics, such as conga, quizzes, riddles and title wars, as well as sync dancing, emote shows and fun at the shing jea boardwalk. Also, people who attend should be prepared to cookalong with the chef as he remakes the 5 course menu.

How can you help?

I still need a few ingredients, so if you have any spare, just PM Prepare To Burn ingame. Any golds, greens and tomes would also be very much appreciated.

When to be there

Just pop on down to International district 1 of Shing Jea Monastery to get in with a chance of winning some of the fantastic prizes on offer. The event should start about 6-7pm GMT, but please be aware the time may change as the finale times are released.

Guild: Mystic Spiral [MYST]

Just as we did last year, Mystic Spiral [pre][MYST][/pre] will be hosting an International district for a few events this Canthan New Year. Last year we hosted 3 events - this year we're aiming for 6, and maybe even more than one district depending on how the farming goes. I'll edit this post with which events we'll be hosting closer to the time, and announce the district about 15 mins before each event (we'll be bouncing around to stop the same people getting a lucky afk boost ).

Hope everyone has a great weekend and we see some of the faces we met last year there again!

Edit: We will be covering the following events this year (GMT times posted):

08:01 : Euro Eng 18
11:01 : Euro Eng 26
14:01 : Euro Eng 33
17:01 : Euro Eng 33
20:01 : Euro Eng 37
23:01 : Euro Eng 37

Districts will be announced 15 mins before the start of each event.

I'm happy to say that ~Natural Born Killaz~ will be district hosting for 2 or 3 events. We haven't set times yet. As for which district we'll be in, that will depend on which districts are available (no one's already there hosting) at the time.

Burning Freebies - uk is +8hrs so it shud kick off at 8pm gmt .
Timezones are such a pain and like a few other onlines games anet shud make their own clock .. gw time , we can see the time in gw regardless of our timezones an that itself shud cut down on the "what time does it start / is it started yet " comments we all hate in events.

So I've been saving these ingredients all year & enlisted the help of fun-loving & friendly Guildies/Alliance Members within the last two weeks so [DOG] will be able to cover all finale times.

PM Iudex Aequus/Diable Sainte closer to the finale to find out where our Alliance will be so you can be guaranteed the most rewards during the Feast Finale.

[DOG] will not be camping in one district - we will float from one to another so there is less of a chance for high numbers of afk'ers.

Get ready to have some fun!

Hi all

Canthan New Year

I am the Guild Leader of Gladiators of the Apocalypse [Apoc] and on behalf of my fellow Co-leaders, Officers and Members, we would like to inform you that we have been collecting the various items that the Chefs required for the various dishes for the Canthan New Year Event.

We have collected numerous quantities of ALL the described items as per last year’s information and we can guarantee to you that we will be covering both the European and American time zones.

We are inviting you and your friends to attend to these events, in international districts, as per the timetable that Anet will lay down and you will not have to worry about anything else other than clicking on the items that will appear in your inventory.

So as to be distinguishable to you, and of course apart from our tag (Apoc), we will be wearing a white cape with a red cross.

We intend to be in International Districts and should there be a deviation from this I will update this thread.

Thanks for reading this and look forward to see you there and spread the word hehe.

Profession: E/Mo

The Lost Haven {LH} Alliance would like to have the pleasure of your company at the Canthan New Year feast. Our members have braved the fires of Perdition Rock for unctuous remains and ebon spider webs, frozen our fingers shattering Ice golems for icy lodestones, squashed more species of spiders than we could count, picked lots of different seeds, dug up many dragon roots, scraped the moss off of many guardians, picked up truffles, half-eaten blobs, and the many remains of our enemies, plucked out eyes, snapped off different shells, skinned a few naga hides, and de-crested or de-winged any number of foul beasts. We gathered enough trophies, based on the ingredients in last year's feast, to host all 9 feasts of the finale.

We would like you to share in our bounty in the International district, Number 5 barring someone else being there before us (hey, if more people host more districts, great!). If it changes from this, I will post here.
