    Guild Wars 2 players looking for a way into the next Heart of Thorns expansion beta event can literally find a way in by adventuring through the Maguuma Wastes in the game.

  • Stronghold Open Beta Impressions

    The announcement of the stronghold game type was really exciting, and it was a real treat to give it a try during the beta yesterday. Twitch was also busy with several great casters showing off this brand new SPvP play type, and rightfully so! Stronghold has turned out amazing, and may be my new favorite thing to play in Guild Wars 2.

  • 4 Things You Still Won’t Have in Heart of Thorns

    Every game, no matter how successful, will always be missing something players want. Whether it be a feature from a previous game in the franchise, or a highly demanded map on the forums. That's what's so special about expansions and sequels. They can expand the games experience by adding in these missing features. But we don't always get what we want, and this seems to hold true in HoT, as 4 very popular wishes among players will once again be absent.

  • If At First You Unsucceed - The Evolution of Guild Wars 2's Zones

    I've certainly not hidden the fact that I love the new age zone design for Guild Wars 2. It looks as if what we've seen in Dry Top and the Silverwastes will continue in Heart of Thorns, and I couldn't be happier. Well, I could be happier, strictly speaking, but it's not ArenaNet's fault that I haven't won the lottery yet (#&*@$ real-life RNG...).

  • Personal Story Restoration Detailed

    A few weeks ago, ArenaNet announced that it would be restoring the Guild Wars 2 Personal Story, most notably replacing the deactivated "My Greatest Fear" story. In addition, steps from Chapter 8 were moved to Chapter 7 which created an issue with players not being able to access some content and gave a feeling of discontinuity to the overall story arc.

  • ArenaNet Wants You to be Legendary

    The weapon is considered to be one of the most important aspects of a character. Sure your armor makes you look great, while also keeping those arrows from piercing your lungs, but the weapon you wield is what really strikes fear into the heart of your enemies. The legendary weapons in Guild Wars 2 are seen as a sign of great prowess, marking one as a member of the elite. But soon that status may extend to more players.

  • Precursor Crafting Mini-Q&A

    Last week, ArenaNet laid out the first details for the new Legendary Crafting ability that high-level players will have access to when Heart of Thorns launches. We had the opportunity to interview game designer Lindsay Murdock about the precursor aspect of the journey.

  • Crafting Your Own Legendary Weapon

    Legendary weapons in Guild Wars 2 have, up to now, only been available by purchasing from the trading post, through the Mystic Forge, or via drops. However, Heart of Thorns will change all that and allow players to embark on a journey to craft their own Legendary Weapons.

  • Blog Details New Desert Borderlands WvW Map

    A new developer blog has been posted by Guild Wars 2 game designer Tyler Bearce. In it, Bearce discusses the new WvW Desert Borderlands map and how it will bring new elements to PvP. The team, Bearce writes, has learned a lot about "what works and what doesn't in the time since releasing the original game." To that end, the team wanted to give players something really new that should give players new battlegrounds to master.
