It's 1326 AE, according to the living story. It was 1325 AE at launch. ANet appears to be advancing the years along with our real-life years, so 2014 may be 1327 AE.

It doesn't appear like there's much official recognition of the seasons as per the original Mouvelian calendar, but there is a fanon version that converts our real-life Gregorian calendar to a Mouvelian equivalent that many on this site use - it can be found here: http://www.guildwars2roleplayers.com/forum/page/1/m/2737230/viewthread/5911959-gregorian-to-mouvelian-calender-conversion-charts

Don't forget that McCoy mentions the asura discovered the missing days of the calender, making it 356 days.
Official Asura statement wrote:
“Friends and fellows. Due to recent (amazing!) reasoning by scholars of the Astronomagical Society, we are pleased to announce that we have added the five hidden days to our calendar year! That’s five extra days we’ve recognized for you to advance your work before the annual review. Gifts and gratitude are unnecessary. We merely acknowledged them officially; we did not create them. May all your projects be almost as successful as ours.”

Love this. I love how we're actually gaining years in RP. Unlike so many other MMOs, where the year isn't mentioned (or even worse, doesn't change!)

Does anyone know the exact date in time? ;o

GW2 Calendar

If you look on this link it tells you that it's the 83 Season of the Scion 1327 AE.

However, in the chart it says that Scion is between 181 - 270 in days. This confuses me, could anyone explain? :x

There is no exact date.

When arenanet decided to add the extra five days to bring the mouvelian calendar in line with the gregorian calendar they neglected to tell us where these additional dates actually go. Though a lot of people use the conversion charts provided by Inasis and Alystair, not everyone does - with people choosing to add the extra days somewhere else (or just not include them at all), where in lies the problem.

As for that link to the GW2 Wiki, the template that produces the current date is based on the old mouvelian calendar with 360 days and not 365.

Actually, the GW2W just slaps the added 5 days to the end of Colossus. The Wiki also counts January 1st as 01 Zephyr, much like the more common conversions here on 2RP, despite the lack of sense in it for things like Halloween - "simplicity over logic" one could say.

But basically there'll always be a 1-5 margin of error from after 90 Zephyr and until 91 Colossus, all dependent on which season gets new days and how many.
