OP  8/27/13 6:33:31 AM#1

It's back to school time, kiddies. Guild Wars 2 just announced that the beloved Super Adventure Box (from April Fools this year) is making a return to Tyria next week. On top of that, several crafting professions are having their level cap increased, along with the addition of craft-able Ascended Weapons. Read on for all the information on what the next GW2 update from ArenaNet brings.

Super Adventure Box originated as an April Fools’ Day joke earlier this year, but quickly became a fan favorite with its pixelated 3D graphics, retro music and nostalgic gameplay that stirred memories of video games from yesteryear. Designed in-game by Moto, a crafty asura, to be a virtual reality simulator to educate the younger generation, Super Adventure Box will take players back to school with new and more difficult challenges.

Players can get an early look at the update by joining a livestream with ArenaNet developers on Tuesday, Sept. 3, at noon (PDT) on the Guild Wars 2 Twitch channel.

Among the events, rewards and features that will be included are the following: 

New Events

  • Continued Education: Players can continue their studies by going deeper into World 2, traveling through the Rapids, Pain Cliffs and Storm Top, where they’ll meet their lethal final exam in the form of the Storm Wizard. Unlocking new items and upgrades along the way will be the key to getting ahead.
  • Tribulation Mode: Moto’s newest challenge teaches resilience and non-linear thinking. Players will learn that life isn’t easy in this new, ridiculously difficult mode for all zones in Worlds 1 and 2.

New Rewards

  • Super Weapon Set: Players can acquire a stylish new look for their weapons by trading in Bauble Bubbles to earn the rest of the Super Weapon Skins.
  • King Toad and Storm Wizard Weapons: Showing their prowess in Super Adventure Box, players will earn the materials necessary for King Toad and Storm Wizard weapons.
  • Mini Princess Miya: Players can create their own mini Princess Miya by combining in the forge a mini Moto and elements of Princess Miya’s outfit. 

New Features

  • Craft Ascended Weapons: New recipes and materials will be hidden around the world, and a new skill cap of 500 will be introduced for the Weaponsmith, Artificer and Huntsman crafting disciplines. Players crafting their way to 500 will become Grandmaster Crafters and can learn the secrets of crafting Ascended weapons.
  • Legendary Weapon Updates: Legendary weapons will receive a stat boost, an Offensive Infusion slot to align with new Ascended weapons and additional functionality, among other things.
  • Account-Wide Magic Find: Magic Find will be removed as an equipment stat and implemented as an account-wide bonus applied to all of a player’s characters.
Read more over at the Guild Wars 2 site.

When you bring back old content, does that still count as content update?

I hope the team that developed the Super Adventure Box gets a significant raise; by far this is my favorite part of GW2!

Not sure if its because it takes me back through memory lane but there's just something very special about the 8-bit world :)

When they double the amount of levels, add a new end boss, a bunch of new weapon skins, and a whole new dififculty level for the whole thing, including the old levels?

Yes.  Yes it does.

As much as I love the 8-bit world of The Super Adventure Box, I think we enjoy it in the context of the world of GW2. If it was a stand alone game, I'm not sure it would work as well.

Having said that however, I'm a huge fan of The Super Adventure Box and its by far one of my favorite aspects of GW2, so... who knows

They are expanding on it. While I personally do not like it, i'm happy they have these projects they can easily build upon. It will give them more time to make the Living stories that tell a tale and provide more substantial content  in the future as what has been released so far has been fairly lackluster.

I did like Flame and Frost (not the release schedule, just much of the content added), but they could definitely use more substantial releases that introduce new zones and dungeons, the things many MMO players are used to having in the 3-6 month content releases of other MMOs.  I'd prefer they move away from the dynamic events they've been adding since the Secret of Southsun, that encourage mobs of players completing dynamic events for easier loot. I'd rather they return to their vision for dynamic events, that they'd have meaningful story lead up, affect the world while on going, and have consequences. Scarlet's Invasions are just the latest nail in the coffin that is the Guild wars 2 manifesto.

Latest patch permanently added invasions.  They said that last year a lot of the things they did were holiday style events, which would come in and out of the game, and that moving forward from here there will be more permanent changes put in.  We'll see how it works from here on out. :P

Was telling a friend the other day we need some down time after these past patches, to much action. Seems anet thought so too. The crown pavilion and invasions have been great fun and great loots but are so chaotic your eyes will burn, this will bring a well needed change of pace for a few weeks. Seems there dungeon and reward changes are working well to get people out of cof and doing more things so next couple weeks should be fun. See you all in game ;)

If there's such a thing as too much content, ANet intends to find out.

 

"As you read these words, a release is seven days or less away or has just happened within the last seven days— those are now the only two states you’ll find the world of Tyria."...Guild Wars 2
