Alpine Borderlands Returning, Scribing Cost, Fractal Changes

Alpine Borderlands Returning, Scribing Cost, Fractal Changes -

The Guild Wars 2 site has a short, but sweet, post from ArenaNet's Mike O'Brien about some big happenings in the Spring Quarterly Update set to launch in mid-April.

Players can look forward to tiering structure changes in Fractals along with new achievements. Scribing will see a reduction in associated costs across the board. The Alpine borderlands will be making a return when alterations are complete. In the meantime, changes will be implemented on the Desert borderlands until it's ready.

Two weeks ago we polled the WvW community about Desert versus Alpine borderlands. The majority of players asked us to bring Alpine back. We’ll do that. It actually takes quite a bit of time to dust off old content and bring it up to the current game state, so it won’t happen in time for the quarterly release. Instead we’ll launch the quarterly update with improvements to Desert, use that as an opportunity to get the community’s feedback on those changes, then we’ll swap to Alpine when it’s ready. Changing borderlands maps like this will disrupt matches in progress, but we think that making changes on live servers, where everyone can test, is worth the cost.

You can read the full notice on the Guild Wars 2 site.

Thanks, BT13!
