My Guild Wars 2 rebirth was forged in a fire of self-determination in the game. Maybe I’d spent too long allowing other people to define my final goals and to dictate the content I absorbed as the peak of my Guild Wars 2 experience. Truth be told, I’m happier farming world bosses (and the recent Holographic Stampede from the annual Dragon Bash event) than I ever will be trying, and failing, to defeat Dhuum. I have my goals in the game, and I’ve adjusted my expectations.As the game continues to breath, I, as a long-term player, have changed, and my consumption of the game reflects that. … [Read more...] about Guild Wars 2: The End(game)
When Heart of Thorns arrived, Fractals got a rework with an increase in difficulty level to 100. However, the rework was so much of an overhaul that the previous zenith of challenge, Level 80, had now been tuned to about the halfway mark as a Level 50. The game itself was being inserted with more challenge to increase the skill cap of players and as such, is explicitly responsible for the growing rift between styles of gameplay.

Using a secondary endurance bar to gain height, you can then grip on to walls to regain some of that to be able to fly even higher. Breaking out of the map is about to get super fun. The dismount, a nice spicy AoE fire ring matches up with the mount perfectly and while it can be a little clunky to start with, once you’re familiar with it you’ll be scrambling up mountain sides and jumping over roofs faster than you can say “Caithe, why did you start your own weird blue crystal cult?”. … [Read more...] about War Eternal: Guild Wars 2 Season 4 Finale
Unveiling the Icebrood Saga and the upcoming continuation of our Commander's fate is undoubtedly a major milestone in the Guild Wars 2 story. This brand new saga, as it is called, will take players and back to the Northern areas of Tyria, reconnecting them with the Norn and Charr races. It's a fantastic idea to go back to the roots of what captured our imagination when we first started playing Guild Wars 2 and reconnect with the races that we’ve rarely seen since the game began. However, the manner of that announcement seems to have been most unusual. … [Read more...] about Guild Wars 2: Did PAX Miss The Headline?
