The Blue Salt Festival Returns: August 15th – September 5th

Are you ready for some more fun on the sunny shores of Sanddeep? The Blue Salt Brotherhood is!

This limited time event will be available during the following days:

North America: August 15 – September 5, starting and ending at 11 PM PDT.
Europe: August 16 – September 6, starting and ending at 1 AM UTC.

During this time, Sanddeep will be placed into Festival Law. If you’re new to these parts, Festival Law will prevent PvP attacks as if the area was in Peace, BUT you can still be attacked if your guild is fighting in a Dominion War. Be careful!

Use the worldgates found in Austera, Marianople, and Diamond Shores as a cheap way to get to Sanddeep for the festival activities.
