New Lion's Arch, Combat Changes & ESL Finals

New Lion's Arch, Combat Changes & ESL Finals - Guild Wars 2 -

ArenaNet has announced that war torn Lion's Arch will once again shine as the jewel of Tyria when the next Guild Wars 2 update goes live. Said to be heavy on defenses, yet easy on the eyes, Lion's Arch will also sport several new names submitted by the players.

Renamed zones in LA include:

  • Canal Ward → Commodore’s Quarter
  • Lighthouse → Phoenix Roost
  • Lion’s Court → Lion’s Court
  • Air Base → Lion’s Arch Aerodrome
  • Memorial → Field of the Fallen

The team will be announcing in-game events to celebrate the rebirth of the grandest city in Guild Wars 2.

You can also find out upcoming combat changes penned by Roy Cronacher:

Soon, each intensity-stacking damaging condition will stack to a much larger number. While I can’t reveal that number today because we’re still doing performance tests, let’s just say it’s large enough that you should never notice it while you’re playing, even during world boss fights. Essentially, there will be no more limit on damaging conditions. You’ll no longer be punished or punish others when you choose a playstyle that focuses on causing damage over time.

Condition removal will work just as it does now—using a skill that removes a condition will remove the entire stack of a condition, whether it’s two stacks of bleeding or four hundred stacks of bleeding. A player with four hundred stacks of bleeding would be a dead player, but you get my point.

Lastly, the monthly ESL Go4GuildWars2 Monthly finals are going on according to the following schedule:

The event begins at 10:00 a.m. Pacific Time (UTC-7) with the European finals, as Daniel “Jebro” Littleton is joined by James “Kaelaris” Carrol live from ESL Studios in Cologne, Germany. Afterward, join Joe “Storm” Nowasell and Randal “Ruukil” Holcombe at 4:00 p.m. Pacific Time (UTC-7) for the North American finals, live from ESL Studios in Los Angeles, California.
