The Festival of the Four Winds is about to end, and I realized that I don't know whether I have to spend all my Favor of the Festival and Festival Tokens before then.

Will merchants taking the event currency remain in the game, or do I have to make my purchasing decisions under time pressure?

  • I have never played that game, but I am going to assume that you must spend the tokens before the event ends.

Most living story chapters require you to spend your tokens before the event is over.

Some chapters have token traders that remain for a set duration after the event concludes. A good example of this is Lionguard Lyns, who remained available for several months after the Lost Shores chapter that she accepted tokens from.

Halloween and Dragon Bash recur annually and have a shared permanent trader: Sonder the Seller. Wintersday also recurs annually, although the Festival Lionguard trader for ugly wool items is only available during Wintersday.

Additionally, any type of weapon claim ticket (as well as both types of Fortune Scraps) can be traded at the permanently available Black Lion Weapons Specialist.

I recommend spending all of your Festival Tokens before the Festival of the Four Winds ends tomorrow. The traders will likely be unavailable after that. It's possible that we may see Festival Tokens return for a future festival, but not guaranteed.

Update: The Festival Rewards Vendor and Sovereign Weapon Vendor did disappear at the end of that chapter, but have temporarily returned (source). They can be found at the Lion's Arch Grand Plaza or Divinity's Reach Crown Pavilion Waypoint.


Depends on event, sometimes the merchants persist (like the scrap vendors), sometimes the vendors reappear after a while (like the frostivus festival, you could use currency from last year if you had any), but they are usually gone with the event. So... I suggest decide under pressure :). Is the safest bet, and since there are not that many rewards... is not so hard to decide.

  • Frostivus? You mean Wintersday?
