Hi guys! So I played this game religiously since the second BWE up until the first part of Flame and Frost. Totaled about 1400 hours played from Launch until then, so I pretty much did it all at the time, including:

tons of WvW
Fractals up to 64
crafted The Dreamer
all the jumping puzzles
Dungeon Master title
7 professions to 80

I'm excited to see what else is new after 5 months away, since part of the reason I left was because I was extremely burnt out, and Fractals and Jumping Puzzles were just getting old. I also wasn't terribly impressed with Flame and Frost :(

Can anyone fill me in on what's new? Thanks :)

Yes, because most of the new stuff that was added was also removed. Welcome to living story.

You might want to check out this thread. It's only a couple of threads down in this section.

The only new permanent thing are guild missions I think and you get a few rewards for achievement points.
Everything else was temporary, so you don't really get anything out of it apart from the currently running Living Story.

Welcome back! You missed a lot of cool stuff! Some of it's still around, but for now you might wanna focus on catching yourself up with the Bazaar of the Four Winds and Cutthroat Politics stuff that's out right now! There's also a cool new jumping puzzle you can spend hours faceplanting the ground and wishing you were friends with all the Mesmers in the world. There's a new achievement system! Also WvW Masteries if you weren't around for when ti was first implemented. A bunch of traits and skills got changed around.

https://www.guildwar.../february-2013/ this and the wiki will help you learn about the going-ons of what went down story wise, or I can try to find youtube links to certain cutscenes and such for you. They're updating the Living Story on a bi-weekly basis so stick around for a bit when you're done catching yourself up and you'll get to play around with new stuff.
