Community Interview by Anook  with GW2 Lead Designer: Isaiah Cartwright
Anook.com - recently had the chance to sit down with Isaiah Cartwright the Lead Designer of Guild Wars 2 and ask him some of the questions that was asked on the Anook community page!

Wait Anook? What is Anook?
Anook is a new social network for gamers. It allows you to separate your gaming life and real life by taking away and combining gaming related news from your Facebook/Twitter on Anook. It has become progressively popular over the last few weeks and with a sudden growth in users it lead to us getting requests to start a GW2Guru page, which we did

You can find our very own Guru 'Nook' here: Anook (GW2Guru)

What was asked and where do we go?

Can you hint towards a few things that an avid WvW oriented player can look forward to from this month's and the following month's patch?
Isaiah Cartwright: We have a large team working on changes for WvW but they are not coming out in the February build. Some of the changes include a new progression system to make it more rewarding to play in WvW and more things to buy with badges. We’re investigating and evaluating the badge drop rates, improvements to culling, and a number of smaller quality of life improvements in WvW.

Will we be able to cast spells while jumping in the future? (So we can use more spells while kiting.
Isaiah Cartwright: Jumping isn’t a huge focus in Guild Wars 2 combat because we don’t want people to run around continually jumping in order to get an advantage, so for this reason we probably won’t be adding things you can do while jumping.

So they are actually going to do a Armory/profile, it's just a matter of when. I hope it's view-able in-game as well as off-game webpage.

I really enjoy Anook as a social network. Rediscovered it because of that GW2 tweet, and I'm gladly getting active there. It's really a great tool to share and search information about our favorite games.

Arenanet didn't say anything about a new Fractal including Quaggan though. I soooo want it!

[/quote]Quick question, I sign up to Anook does that mean the GW info posted on Facebook and Twitter will be posted there?

Because if I could get that news without using freaking Facebook or Twitter, I would be a happy camper.  (I only made a Facebook account to follow the ArenaNet Facebook page).
