Guild Wars 2 – Quality of Life Changes Incoming.

GW2 Cheers

Three cheers for the GW2 game designers. We love you guys!

Sharing for a better world!

I’m the original Alt-holic. I love to make new characters, and pimp them to the max. So the upcoming feature changes to GW2 feels tailor-made for players like me.

Here are just two of the new features which made me clap with glee!

Account Wide Dyes No more hunting for Black Ice on every character, now if you have it on one, all characters have access to it, and any other colour you have collected. JOY!

So many combinations, colours and styles. This is going to be fun!

Account Wide Wardrobe Think your PVP locker but accessed on your Hero tab and usable by all characters.  I feel a fashion show coming on. 

Here is the GW2 Official Youtube feature release. Enjoy!

See you in Tyria guys.

Evon Gnashblade – For Lion’s Arch!

Cut-Throat Politics

In the aftermath of the assassination of a Captain’s Council member, the prominent merchant Evon Gnashblade has made a bid for the dead pirates seat.

When asked what he had to offer Lion’s Arch, the cunning Charr, in true cut-throat style, promised to slash prices at the Black Lion Trading Company.

“As owner and proprietor of the Black Lion Trading Company, I have the proven leadership skills and business acumen that is sorely needed on the Captain’s Council. With your support, I will secure a trade agreement with the Zephyrites that benefits us all.

If I am elected to the Captain’s Council, I’ll show my gratitude for your support in the following ways:

  • I’ll slash prices on Black Lion Keys for four whole weeks
  • I’ll sponsor important Fractals of the Mist research into the Fall of Abaddon, to be completed by the end of the year
  • I’ll host a rotation of popular activities like Crab Toss and Southsun Survival.

You can find me in the Zephyr Sanctum, working for the best interests of Lion’s Arch.”

It will come as no surprise to anyone that his blatant act of bribery has been welcomed by the general population.

The Real Question is:

Will you let Evon buy your vote, or has Ellen Kiels won you over with her own golden enticements?

Only time will tell, but on the 2nd August do not be too surprised to see Gnashblades face plastered on every wall in Lion’s Arch.

Ellen Kiel – Lionguard Captain for Council!

Cut-Throat Politics

After heading the investigation into the assassination of a Captain’s Council member, the Lionguard Captain Ellen Kiel has joined the race to win the now vacant council seat.

When we caught up with the human in Lion’s Arch, the Captain shared her tactics to ensure victory at the polls.

“I’ve stood by the people of Lion’s Arch in good times and bad, defending her from all manner of threat. Now I want to ensure the security of our beloved city in a different capacity, as a member of the Captain’s Council. I’ll need your support to establish a fair trade treaty between Zephyr Sanctum and Lion’s Arch.

If I’m fortunate enough to earn a position on the Captain’s Council, here’s what you can expect from me:

  • I’ll reduce waypoint travel prices for four weeks’ time
  • I’ll support important Fractals of the Mists research into the Thaumanova Reactor explosion by the end of the year
  • I’ll introduce a rotating schedule of activities such as Crab Toss and Southsun Survival.

Come find me in Zephyr Sanctum; let’s work together for a brighter future!”

Some will see this price reduction as a publicly minded act of charity, others as a counter offer to the financial inducement from her rival Gnashblade.

Whatever your opinion, she is a strong candidate, and will give her Charr adversary a run for his money.

The Real Question is:

Has the Captain done enough to garner your support at the polls, or is she just another power hungry wannabe politician?

Only time will tell, but on the 2nd August if the streets of Lion’s Arch are filled with drunken brawling humans, you will know who has won.

GW2lfg.com, anyone? By Anaxilea Pendragon

GW2lfg.com, anyone?

Recently, I’ve decided to farm the dungeon, Citadel of Flame (CoF), for token rewards, on Path 1. I figured, the quickest and fasted way for me to find a group, for dungeon runs, would be through the gw2lfg.com site.

I’ve used the site in the past, it’s proven to be useful, and the groups that I have encountered seemed relatively friendly. Unfortunately, this time around, for an unknown reason, the general tone and mood of these groups changed.
