Charr Week Schedule

Charr Week Schedule - MMORPG.com

The Arena.Net has laid out the schedule of featured articles for the Guild Wars 2 Charr Week. Fans will get a look at the Charr starter area, be able to hear audio clips, hear how the artists created the Charr models, read a new lore piece about the Charr and get an inside look at Charr society.

The charr first appeared in the original Guild Wars as the implacable foes of humanity, but a lot has happened in the 250 years between the first game and the time period of Guild Wars 2. The charr have rejected their false gods and embraced industry and technology with a gusto, crafting devastating weaponry and incredible machinery. But empire and expansion comes with a heavy price, and the charr of Guild Wars 2 are beset by formidable enemies on all sides.

The charr are an enormous fighting force, and it takes a lot of food to keep that army running. We noticed that we weren’t making effective use of the space just outside of the Village of Smokestead. So, we decided that an event introducing the charr cattle industry would go a long way towards, not only providing more fun content for our new charr players, but also helping to flesh out the charr world. Now, when you first walk out of Smokestead, you might just see a cow startled by some wurms bolting out of the cattle pen. This starts a stampede that empties the pen of the cattle needed to feed the charr armies. Your job as a player is to take a cattle prod and herd those cattle back into the pen by giving them a little zap. Once the cattle are back in the pen, all is well and the charr armies can keep marching on full stomachs.

Read today's installment "Creating the Charr Starter Area" on the Guild Wars 2 blog for Monday.
