GW2 Update: New Lunar New Year 2023 Rewards
The GW2 Lunar New Year 2023 release patch notes can be found on the official GW2 forums. But here are the highlights of the release:
The Lunar New Year Customs meta-achievement unlocks the Embellished Bunny Vest skin in 2023. On top of that, achievements award you with a Firework Chest containing the new Firework Weapons, which have a unique firework effect when you use them in battle draws.
The new weapons from the fireworks set have a funny effect when you equip them: they explode like a firecracker, revealing blades, barrels, rod heads, etc. Source: buffed
The NPC and festival dealer Funkenstein, which is now well-known for its offers, is also luring you with three new skins for the Lunar New Year: a staff with firecrackers, a cute rabbit shield and a red lucky envelope as a focus skin! They each cost 88 Exotic Essences of Luck and 8 Gold Pieces. Alternatively, you can get the weapons with luck from Divine Lucky Envelopes.

A new backpack – like last Lunar New Years – is now available. The rabbit’s lucky lantern with freely selectable stats: two rabbit statues that adorn your back! The skin is available by opening Lucky Envelopes, along with other rewards.

Lunar New Year 2023: New in the GW2 shop
Unfortunately, you won’t find a suitable springer skin for the Year of the Rabbit in the Gem Store. But a new skin for the Raptor mount. This Imperial Crane Raptor Skin transforms the dinosaur into an imposing crane for exploring the world of Tyria. It costs 1,600 gems in the in-game shop.
