GuildWars Insider Staff Openings: Find out how you can join GWI!
On Saturday, August 25, ArenaNet will open its servers to the world of Guild Wars 2 prepurchasers with head-start access. When they set foot in Tyria for the first time, an entire world of content awaits them.
But for some, the contents of that world are still a mystery. Crafting disciplines remain untouched, professions remain unexplored. You make a daunting number of decisions when you first create a character, and we’re here to ensure that your early decisions are well-informed.
So for seven days, ending the Friday before head-start, we will be releasing content daily tailored to you, the undecided Tyrian explorer. Click through the mists to see our schedule and links to already-published content!
Many of us have a PC that is just capable of running the games that we own. You know, like if you turn all the settings way down and squint a lot, it looks phenomenal. For the most part our “classic” PC does the job, but along comes a shiny new game that we just absolutely have to play. In this case its Guild Wars 2. However, a small voice in your head laughs derisively as it reminds you that your PC often has trouble just loading up the Guild Wars 2 Web page let alone a modern MMO. What to do? Fear not, Guild Wars Insider will guide you to the bleeding edge of computing!
WELCOME TO CALEDON FOREST
Caledon Forest is the starting area for the Sylvari. Located to the north of The Grove, the race’s capital city, Caledon Forest contains 18 hearts, 18 waypoints, 20 points of interest, seven skill points to seek and eight vistas to view.
WELCOME TO METRICA PROVINCE
Hopefully everyone is enjoying the beta weekend as much as we are here at Guild Wars Insider. If you are rolling a new asura character, you are going to be starting off in Metrica Province – and we want you to get as much out of the zone as you can. Below is a map highlighting the important areas and some of the best spots for dynamic events.
In total, you will find 16 hearts, 16 waypoints, 23 points of interest, 8 skill points and 9 vistas to capture. Can you get them all?
