Story of the Day 2/4/2014 - Guild Wars 2 - The Edge of the Mists Goes Live

Guild Wars 2 continues its run of updates by launching the latest The Edge of the Mists. MMO players have had a host of great updates to the game over the past year as ArenaNet delivers on its promises of a living world. This patch will bring a big enhancement to PvP. Players have seen a lot of great story lines and this time around the World vs. World maps and queue system will get a big overhaul.

The biggest enhancement is that players will no longer have to wait to get into The Edge of the Mists. As instances fill up for the new WvW zone another one will open so players can enter the new areas quickly. This is a boost to players who want to grow their WvW achievements and abilities.

The team at ArenaNet has improved the queue system as well to allow players to see the population of maps before they enter them. It will also display your rank in the queue for that map. This should help players get into combat faster and find zones which are open for exploration.

Scarlet’s Aetherblade Pirates are the focus of the PvE portion of the patch as players will track her down. Join Taimi and Braham as they remain hot on her trail.

As if killing players in WvW wasn’t fun enough, you can now add a cute little Quaggan to your finishing moves. This part of the patch is hysterical and we can see players jumping on board to get the last laugh on their foes. You can continue to ride the wave of Valentine’s Day by also getting some heart shaped weapons.

Guild Wars 2 has done a stellar job in boosting the original game with lots of free updates for their players. Each patch brings something new on a regular basis and this enhancement to WvW should really pick the battle back up.
