Building Lion's Arch

Building Lion's Arch - Guild Wars 2 - MMORPG.com

In addition to yesterdays video featuring the Guild Wars 2 city of Lion's Arch, Arena.Net Content Designer Matthew Medina has written a new blog post about the creative process behind the largest free city in Tyria.

With design production well under way, I reach out to the world and story designers and schedule a meeting, where I can sit down with all of them and ask the questions that I’ve been gathering for a while. This is an informal meeting, where we sometimes bat ideas back and forth, and even explore tangents. For example, in the Lion’s Arch meeting, someone asked whether a charr who lived in Lion’s Arch owed their allegiance first to their legion, or whether they considered themselves an “Archer” first. The answer to that question—charr naturally put their legion above anything else—led to further discussion about charr warbands and how they are structured, which in turn helped me to understand some of the themes I will be able to explore when designing the Black Citadel.
