Game Status Update September 9th

Patch notes September 9th

Not needing to take crafting items out of storage to craft known items is great. Safes time and inventory space. You sill have to have items in inventory for discovering though.

Some cooking items you used to have to buy now drop or a gathered in the world instead.

I haven't been there, yet, but apparently if you get to Durman Priory you can learn from NPCs that:

The Gigantic Lupis, who's skeletal remains can be found in GW1, were in fact wiped out by the elder dragons in an earlier awakening.

The elder dragons were at one time fought by five other races, dwarves (now nearly extinct), jutan (now reduced to brute savages), forgotten, mursaat and seers. What's interesting about this is by GW1 time the mursaat and the seers were ancient foes, the seers having lost a war to the mursaat. The mursaat would eventually fight against humans and lose. I don't know if any have survived to GW2. Though Arenanet has hinted they have. And most GW1 players suspect their involved in human personal story at some point. I haven't read of anyone meeting them in GW2 but then I haven't been looking for that information either. I don't want to know in advance.

There may be a sixth dragon. Some people think its awake now (and in Cantha not Tyria) but that would mean it awoke before Primordus or two woke at a time. As far as we know now they awaken one at a time every fifty years. Which seems to me to mean number six will awaken AFTER Guild Wars 2 time.


On another note: some people have completed the game already. Some liked the battle against Zaihtan, some did not. I've avoided learning any details about it.

My elementalist has just reached level 30, unlocking elite skill slot. Unlocking a slot does not provide a skill, but purchasing the deluxe digital version of GW2 game me a free elite so I'm using it until I have enough skill points to get another. It takes 10 to unlock an elite but I still haven't unlocked any of the 6 point utility skills. He's met Destiny's Edge, it did not go well. In sylvari story line its Caithe who tries to get the group back together. I'm assuming that is different for each race. Though why Rytlock would want to reform the group when he now despises Thackery is perplexing.

I have not yet done the first dungeon, which becomes available at level 30.

Thanks Guybrush, I'm looking forward to the elite just cause it's a dog in wolf's clothing, or is that fur? lol

Mikeplay, as usual I have way too many characters. They are Ayshaia, Allora Longbow, Mysty Arias, Aingealita and Catatonic Katalyzer. We all live happily on Stormbluff Isle. Allora is in a guild but doesn't know anyone and can't find the guild name at the guild armorer etc lol The rest of of are not guilded.

We went to Stormbluff cos my neighbor is there, but I need to get his name and add him to my contact list.

Obviously, I am having fun rotfl

Guild Wars 2 breaks 2 million

I'm on Ehmry Bay (named after Kevin Ehmry, Arenanet programmer).

With the special characters in their names some of my characters are hard to find. If you want to look for me try Kissa Nimbleclaw.

Mike O’Brien on Account Security

Concept Artist Spotlight: Jamie Ro

I just completed the easiest map in the game. I stumbled into completely by accident on the Chantry of Secrets, the Order of Whisper's hidden base (I'm in The Vigil) and unlocked the Point of Interest there, completing the map. All the chest containted was 6k XP, no money or anything.

There's an Asura Gate and some other odd gate, both guarded. I'm guessing one of those leads to Elona, where the Order came from.

Your personal story

Each character has a Personal Story, which is closest thing to traditional quests in Guild Wars 2.

Your personal story consists of 8 parts, or chapters of differing lengths. Each quest within a chapter will have an increasing character level recommendation. Sometimes I think they underestimate the difficulty of the quests.

The first three chapters are determined by your character's race and how you answer the biography questions. Several times during your personal story you will have to make a choice, usually from two possible directions, sometimes three. Once you make the choice you can't change it. This allows for replying the races and not having to do the exact same story line every time. Course it also means you'll have to buy extra character slots if you want to see every branch of every personal story.

At the end of the third chapter you will have to chose which of the tree multiracial Orders to join, the Order of Whispers (the oldest of the three, formed by humans in Elona it spread to Tyria), the Durmand Priory (led by an asura) or the Vigil (led by a charr). The fourth chapter takes you on assignments for your order.

In chapter five your order will ask you to aid one of the lesser races in order to recruit them. Which three races you will have to choose from is determed by your race. For sylvari I had to chose from Hylek (frogs), Skrit (rodents) or Quaggan (an aquatic species). I chose Quaggan. Keep in mind that if you choose Quaggan you will be fighting underwater, so your weapons and skills will be different.

Chapter six is a mixture of order based quests and ones that everyone gets. For example, everyone has to fight the Battle of Claw Island. During this chapter you will be asked what your greatest fear is and the answer determines how chapter 7 plays out.

Chapter 8 takes you on the offensive against the elder dragons.

I've only played the first six chapters.

At some point Destiny's Edge will join in and how they are brought back together is covered in the dungeons. You will get an in game email inviting you to your first dungeon at level 30. I've done the first 3 dungeons. I thought the first was the hardest, so far. After completing a dungeon in story mode you'll receive an invitation to do it again in explorer mode, which is supposed to be harder. I haven't attempted either of the first three in explorer mode.

As far as I know. However, the invitation has a button on it that will show you were the dungeon is, which I found useful. The first dungeon is in charr territory and I was playing a sylvari that hadn't actually been there when I got the email. Second dungeon is in human territory. Third in sylvari.

Hi L4L,Guy
Just got through with a dungeon and you do not need to keep the mail, the mail will just show you where it is at, after the email it will show up on your world map.



I intend to live forever......so far, so good.

Thanks guys. Son wants to do a dungeon, but so far we have not had the time. We will have to check it out. I do see folks in chat looking for groups quite often. wave

Is there an "average time" to allot per dungeon, or does it totally depend on the group and the dungeon? I'm assuming you get some awesome gear?

At one time Arenanet had said that a human character would be able to choose ethnicity. You could be Ascalonian, Canthan, Elonan , or Krytan. (Guld Wars: Prophecies characters were Ascalonians who end up moving to Kryta. They had been at war with the charr before following their prince to Kryta. Guild Wars: Factions was set on the continent of Cantha and Nightfall on Elona.) Then they decided to cut back on the number of biography questions. I was disappointed. I wanted to make a fierce Ascalonian human and be mean to charr NPCs. If you go with your human's biggest regret being not recovering your dead sister's body you are asked by Logan, who is updating records, whether you and your sister are Krytan or not. You can then choose any of the ethnic groups. I of course, chose, Ascalonian. I haven't finished the story line yet but apparently in some way you see your sister, I don't know if a ghost or if she's actually alive, but your choice determines how she looks.

Being fierce I had the option of taking my sister's betrayer in alive or killing him. I killed him (if I'm going to be barbaric, I may as wall act it). Logan Thackery didn't like it but he didn't interfere either.

The final chapter (8) of the personal story is the longest, with 14 parts. There are 4 places in which you will have to chose between two paths. Some parts everyone gets and some are based on what your greatest fear is.

Dungeons can be done between personal story parts or saved for after the personal story or skipped altogether. Although if you skip them you'll miss Caithe trying to reform Destiny's Edge and getting frustrated by the behavior of the others which she doesn't understand.

Tomas Nathan Tinker in Heritage Adventurer Armor - purely coincidence but a guild member also made an engineer with the family name of Tinker. I included the middle name so I could nick name him TNT, for explosive temper. smile

Ramei as Risen (undead) - there are several places in the game where you will be disguised, this is just one of them. Some people want a playable undead race, like in WOW. I suppose this is what such a character would look like.

I still believe Tengu is coming as playable.
