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.
Players attempt to gain control of three capture points. Each conquest map features a unique secondary objective that gives the map additional strategic, tactical depth and can change the tide of battle. At set intervals during the match, artifacts of the gods will become available for capture. Capturing the Sword of Reaping will automatically defeat any downed enemies that you strike and provide a 20% damage bonus to your entire team. Capturing the Shield of Life will give the player that wields it a free resurrection when downed in addition to 5000 bonus health and 100 toughness for the entire team.
