The Guild Wars 2 living story, Flame & Frost, is about to come to its epic conclusion with today's release of The Retribution. We've had a chance to check out The Retribution ahead of the patch today and have a few thoughts to share. Read on and then head to the comments.
The Living Story in Guild Wars 2 has had a pretty big build up over the last few months. The grand finale for the Flame and Frost storyline is finally here, and ArenaNet is ending it with a bang! There are a few ways they could have ended this story arch. Some of us thought a large series of dynamic events would be used. Others felt they would use an instance like they did with The Razing. While either of these could have worked just fine, you can’t go wrong with a dungeon. Dungeons are such a big part of the MMO experience, so this type of ending just feels right. ArenaNet showed us lucky members of the press the new dungeon for Retribution over this past weekend. And I have to say, they did the right thing.
