Ok so this post was going to be a bit of a negative one…….. As much as i hate to write anything negative about Guild Wars 2 i had been bottling this up for some time now and after the other week when A-net announced that they were going to be adding fortnightly content to the game, as much as wanted to jump for joy i had to a bit of a sore spot about all this new Living story content.
You see i’m a real lore buff. I have read both books and have the 3rd on order. I played thru the whole lot of Guild Wars 1 and whilst all my friends were stretching their legs i sat and watched every cut scene and listened to what all the characters had to say.
I thought it was brilliant how A-net had linked the 2 games together with the books and I have really enjoyed the continued Lore from Guild Wars 1 to Guild Wars 2, I even felt somewhat sad the first time i visited Old Lion’s Arch underwater and several other places in Guild Wars 2 that linked to Guild Wars 1.
With that said A-net has introduced to us this new living story content at a cracking pace and i have enjoyed it very much but i couldn’t help but feel like it was all just added on at the last minute to put content into the game…………Like these guys….
Like i said, i have enjoyed all this new content but A-net had gone to way too much trouble to build this great story that has arched from one game to the other to just simply keep adding on fill in content…….I was begging for some lore that fits!!!!!!
And then the Bazaar came along……
As soon as I set foot into this content i felt like i was home…….as silly as that sounds my favourite expansion from Guild Wars 1 was Nightfall as that’s where I found my dervish who became my main character. These people are all of Canthan and Elonian decent!!! Yes yes yes!!
Yes she’s talking about Glint!!! The dragon in Guild Wars 1!!!! I was soooo excited when I heard this and then the next day A-net released a short story piece about how the Zephyrites became the keeper of the dragons………..https://www.guildwars2.com/en/community-news/short-story-the-trek-of-the-zephyrites/ here is the link if you missed it.
So pretty much all these magical crystals around the bazaar and sanctum are pieces of Glint and their using her magic to get around the place with pretty impressive jumping and dash skills.
So I have to say that this patch is by far my favourite, not only is this zone stunning in itself the music to it also takes you away.
I went a little crazy with screen shots simply because I know i’m going to miss it so much when cruel cruel A-net take it away from us, but i’m hoping that it’s going to lead us to more exciting and juicy lore from the past and maybe even The Crystal Desert!!!
I also wish they would keep all these new mini games in the game, I am totally addicted to The Sanctum Sprint. At first I didn’t think I would get into it due to the fact it’s like a giant jumping puzzle but my inner Mario cart days quickly came back to me and i found myself playing ……just one more………and then one more race, over and over again.
So here’s some of the screen shot’s I have taken from the new content, I hope your enjoying it as much as i am, and please leave a comment about your thought’s on then new content………What are you enjoying about it? Where do you think this is going to take us?
And for now I need to get back to racing………. :)
