  • Is the Gem Store Ruining Guild Wars 2?

    Over the years the MMO genre has gone through some changes, but has mostly stuck to well established norms. ArenaNet wanted to go in a separate direction with Guild Wars 2, going against what we see in MMO game design. One little feature that has become very common in MMOs, did make its way into Guild Wars 2. I'm talking about micro-transaction, which happen in the gem store. Does this mean ArenaNet kicked the need of skill to the curb, and embraced pay to win?!

  • The Edge of the Mists is Living Story Done Right

    The Guild Wars 2 Living Story started out strong offering nice bits of narrative, and introducing us to a whole new cast of characters. Over time updates began to showcase less story, and focused more on combat. It seemed the "story" part was missing. Then came the newest additions to Guild Wars 2: The Origins of Madness, and The Edge of the Mists. The tale ArenaNet wants to weave is now once again becoming the main focus, which is something players have been wanting.

  • New WvW Action Arrives with Edge of Mists Update

    ArenaNet has announced that the latest Guild Wars 2 update, Edge of Mists, is now live across servers. Edge of Mists brings a significant overhaul to the World vs World system, as well as what the team is calling a "shocking revelation" about Scarlet Briar and her nefarious plans for Tyria.

  • War Lore: Edge of the Mists

    A lot has been said about Guild Wars 2's The Edge of the Mists, but thus far the discussion's focused on the map's mechanical aspects. Though last week's teaser trailer hinted that Scarlet's evil designs could bleed into the Mists, developer ArenaNet has thus far kept the details under wraps. Starting today, some of our curiosity will be satisfied as we embark on a quest to reveal the frightening vision of Tyria's most infamous uber-villain.

  • Edge of the Mists Hopes to Bring in New WvW-ers

    Like other MMOs in the past, Guild Wars 2 offers multiple styles of gameplay to reach a wider variety of players. ArenaNet offers typical cooperative rpg elements for PvE players, and competitive fast paced action for those that prefer PvP. WvW has always been in the center, trying to grab attention from both groups. That's why we are seeing Living Story content in in WvW, through the addition of the Edge of the Mist.

  • Need More Heals?

    For years now, though not the original "trinity", MMOs have used a formula based around three play types called the tank, DPS, and healer. ArenaNet saw the terrible plague of LFG spam, and tried to remedy it with a new formula in Guild Wars 2. While you will never be looking for a certain profession in order to make a dungeon group, some still feel the lack of a true healing profession is hurting the game. But was attempt to rid us of the trinity a flop?

  • Let’s go to Cantha!

    Back during the Original Guild Wars, players would travel to different regions of the world. That's right, Tyria was only the stepping stone into a wonderful and enchanting world. The first of the new lands we explored was called Cantha, which had a variety of rich environments that hid deadly new enemies around every corner! This is why players are asking ArenaNet, when can we go back to Cantha?
