As we head in to another exciting chapter of the Living World Season 3, it's time to look at what we can expect from November 21st update, A Crack in the Ice. As most Guild Wars 2 players are already aware, this release will come with the next instalment of Tyria's war against the Elder Dragons, and is expected to take us deep in to the frozen northlands where the icy breath of Jormag awaits us.
From now through November 22nd, interested players can score a copy of the first Guild Wars 2 expansion, Heart of Thorns, for a whopping 50% off. Ths puts new players in a perfect spot for Monday's story deployment "A Crack in the Ice" or is a nice holiday gift for someone else. Each copy comes with a free level 80 character boost as well.
The Guild Wars 2: Heart of Thorns Living World Season 3 will see the story expanding on November 21st as it was announced today. Called Episode 3 "A Crack in the Ice", players will follow the story of Aurene, Glint's child, on a journey to the Northern Shiverpeaks, home of the Elder Dragon Jormag. Players will also get a chance at a brand new Nightmare fractal, a 5-player battle up a massive tower.
Guild Wars 2 has often been praised for having one the most supportive and friendly communities of any in the MMO genre. Sometimes, like in a Foefire 490-10, with three AFK thieves and a chat log full of 'Nerf ranger-report team', you can start to wonder how, in all of Tyria, anyone could believe that...
The Guild Wars 2 site has a new developer blog from producer Paul Ella. In it, he reveals the first information about Legendary Armor and how the team has worked diligently to provide it with a unique look that changes between when a player is in or out of combat. Heavy armor is featured in the video to show off this fantastic addition, with cloth and leather previews to come at a later time.
Guild Wars 2 players will get to participate in the annual Shadow of the Mad King event beginning on October 18th. Players will trick or treat, take part in special events, pull or be victim to spooky practical jokes and much more. Players will also have new rewards to earn this year.
It's a new zone! And earlier than expected! ArenaNet originally promised Guild Wars 2 players a new Living Story update every three months, but Rising Flames and Ember Bay came ahead of schedule, just two months after we got Out of the Shadows and Bloodstone Fen. Was it worth the wait... er, non-wait? Well, kinda-sorta-wait?
In a new trailer, ArenaNet takes the wraps off the new Guild Wars 2 PvP map called the Eternal Coliseum. The conquest map arrived with Guild Wars 2 with Living World Season 3 Episode 2. Check it out!
With today's Guild Wars 2 update, a new legendary weapon arrived along with it. In a new developer post by Matt Pennebaker and Mike O'Brien discuss the new method of obtaining a legendary weapon that may be, according to them, a bit short on lore, but also a lot less complicated.
Guild Wars 2 has been updated with today's release of Living World Season 3 Episode 2 "Rising Flames". In it, players take to the Ring of Fire, a legendary location in Tyria's lore and history straight out of Guild Wars. In addition, a new PvP map called Eternal Coliseum has been added with players fighting to gain the favor of attendees similar to gladiatorial arenas in ancient Rome.
