Today marks the release of new content in Guild Wars 2 - Flame & Frost: The Gathering Storm. We had a team take part in a preview of the new experiences players will find when they log in again. See what we discovered in this, our second big preview, before leaving your thoughts in the comments.
First let’s talk about Spirit Watch. Like most maps the first team to 500 points wins. There are 3 things you can do to earn points for your team. Capture points, transport the orb from the altar in the center of the map to any capture point, and kill other players. It is important to note that you can take the orb to any capture point and score, even those controlled by another team. If you take the orb to a point that you control you will earn 30 points. If you take the orb to a point that is either neutral or controlled by the enemy you will earn 10 points. As an added bonus if you take the orb to a point that is controlled by the enemy you will instantly flip it from their control to a neutral status. This map is all about the elevation changes. Ranged characters can dominate this map. You can get a more in depth look at the map in the video below.
