NOTE: As we get pictures, better directions, and other additions, we’ll be adding them to this guide. Stay Tuned!
The Halloween festivities in Tyria are bringing with them not only candy scares, and cheap plastic spiders, but a whole bunch of new meta events, all focused on the return of Mad King Thorn. They take place in three zones: Queensdale, Kessex Hills, and Gendarren Fields No doubt many people will be milling about, and madness will be rushing about, so it’ll pay off to know what you are getting into.
After hearing the exciting news of planned support for upcoming holidays and one time events, one might wonder how much warning we’ll get before these events start. If you’re like me, you wont want to miss a second of it and Colin Johanson has heard our pleas. In response to a forum post, Colin said that depending on the scope of the event we’ll either have just some in-game clues (probably geared towards “smaller” events) or some interface elements with warnings or countdowns, such as the Ascalonian Ghost event chain in the Plains of Ashford.
Colin’s response after being asked, “…for the one-time events,will we get much notice before they occur, and if so how much?”
Sometimes yes, sometimes no, it’ll depend on the event and the scope of the stuff going on. Some events will be designed for the community to work together and piece together information based on stuff they see/discover in game we don’t give any pre-warning about what so ever. Other one time events might have things in the game showing warnings or count-downs until they occur.
This week Washednblood and Wormwood put on their tinfoil hats to talk about some of the crazy theories that have been floating around the internet. Are the sylvari really dragon minions that have been set free? Are the dragons related to the human gods? The answers can be found in All Roads Lead to Orr!
Are you sick of Country Pants and Chainmail Chausses yet? How about now? Low-level armor art variety in GW2 is pretty limited. If you’re looking for some fancy new threads, Redditor Imaginos has created a visual guide to armor karma vendors and their locations throughout Tyria.
These karma vendors appear in a variety of areas ranging from Queensdale to Mount Maelstrom. Fear not, though, lower-level players, as the vast majority of the armor sets are, in fact, available in the beginning and intermediate level 1-25 zones.
Guild Wars 2 has been out for about two months now. A fan generated a satisfaction survey on the GW2 forums to see how the game is faring from its customers’ perspectives, and the numbers are looking very curious. The survey indicates that Necromancers and Elementalists are the least happy with their class as a whole, while Mesmer and Thieves reported the highest levels of satisfaction.
Now, keep in mind, these numbers are from a survey that you can take here, and do not represent the community as a whole in Guild Wars 2.
If you want to check out the remaining stats that the survey covered, you can head over to Timebomb’s site. I am curious to hear from the GWI community what your thoughts are on these stats and whether you agree or disagree. Leave a comment in the forums letting us know!
