Elisabeth Cardy: We built Guild Wars 2 with the idea in mind that it should be good to see other players. We regularly see the success of that in the stories that we hear from guilds, couples, and BFFs about their in-game and out of game adventures. Hearing stories like these is incredible rewarding and heartwarming and we wanted to share some of that joy with the world! … [Read more...] about Arenanet Talks: Guild Wars 2 Friend/Ship Campaign

When parsed out like this, the costs of what you get to what you spend in terms of Black Lion Chest Keys is fairly staggering. As a whole though, the actual prices and costs are next to meaningless. For example, I have a stack of revive orbs in my inventory I’ve never used. I didn’t even count the Teleport to a Friend in my gem cost simply because you can’t buy them at the Black Lion Trading Company anymore, and I have dozens of them just taking up space in my bank.

So, what’s our big goal here? It’s to do battle with Balthazar, the God of War! Makes sense, right? He’s out in the Crystal Desert somewhere, and we’re going to go hunt him and his minions down, dole out some justice, and save Tyria. So far there are three acts, where you and your guild of NPCs undergo mission after mission. Now, you can complete the entire story in a weekend (or less if you really rush). I did not though because I’ve really found myself exploring the world, trying to get as many Heroic Points, etc. My character was a fresh 80, so I wanted to do it for myself and for my character. The gameplay’s the same though; you help out communities, explore, delve deep into this story, and watch as your team grows and evolves as personalities. That’s one thing that Guild Wars 2 will never lack: Character development. You have a crew of helpful heroes with you to tackle this problem, and they’re all different, unique characters. … [Read more...] about Guild Wars 2: Path of Fire Review
