#2227733 Favourite and least favourite Living Story addition?

Posted Calypso589 on 20 August 2013 - 02:19 PM

Dragon bash had to be the most retarded thing on the planet.

A giant celebratory morale boost against the dragons. Ok, I kind of get that.


Everyone was dressing like dragons....
Dragon candy.....
Dragon weapons.....
A giant f***ing "shrine" to the Shatterer in the middle of the pavilion....

Pretty sure that all fits the criteria of a people that celebrate dragons rather than condemns them.

Dumbest update by far.


Halloween. Fantastic, rage inducing JP (that I never finished). Creative explorable area filled with events and loot (can you imagine going down there and farming champ candy corn elementals and skeletons now?), enjoyable mini dungeon at the end, weapon skins that served as mini legendaries but weren't RNG based and encourage returning next year for the materials you missed, awesome weapon skins in general (they've dialed back on the RNG to acquire skins in general so next year should be much better), candy corn dynamic events that were added, costume brawl, the challenging yet creative scavenger hunt, and homage paid to Gw1 vets in the form of Thorn's corny jokes at the very end. Also LA looked badass. Can't wait for this Halloween given the improvements they've made in distributing content.

A very close second is super adventure box for obvious reasons.

As far as the living story is concerned the zephyr sanctum is my favorite. Not just in the content that was provided but in its story. It possesses lore that ties back to Gw1 and Glint and produced all kinds of fan theories. We need more of that.

In relation to that, Southsun Cove and anything that happened there was borderline mental. No interest whatsoever in that island whatsoever. I don't care. I don't care. I don't care.

My hope for a future update?

The Wizard's tower.

That just screams "NEW DUNGEON!"

The Wizard's Tower in Kessex Hills! It's cool seeing things like that from GW1, but I don't think it was ever really explained properly then, and it certainly isn't explained now.
I don't know if it's just me, but the castle and Isgarren seem a little creepy (as well as the tamed elementals), and I'd LOVE to be able to go inside at some point, as well as get an explanation about it all!

#2219079 Sanctum Sprint and why the GW2 community is truly awesome

Posted Nuclear_Herring on 12 July 2013 - 11:05 PM

Something happened to me last night that I thought was sufficiently great to tell everyone about here on GW2Guru.

I was playing Sanctum Sprint, and due to a combination of truly awful lag (I'm in New Zealand, and my ping is horrendous) and my own inherent lack of skill I was solidly bringing up the rear of the group. My personal best was 7th and I'm not entirely sure how I even did that well.

Then the awesome thing happened. The group I was playing with had been reasonably consistent and so a couple of other sprinters started asking who hadn't got the achievement yet. As a result of this, those who had the achievement would wait at the finish line and /dance or /sit until a first-time winner came on through.

Eventually, I think I was the last person in the group without the achievement and the whole group followed along behind me. While I must admit I felt like the special kid who needs a crash helmet to play in the sandpit it was really cool for everyone to put their own needs aside so that someone else could get something out of the race.

I eventually finished in first place and got the achievement and title (which I'll be too embarrassed to ever wear) and to make the evening even better I got a windcatcher skin from the end chest.

To those who were there: You guys rock and I hope precursors drop for you in the near future.

tl;dr An entire group of players followed me through Sanctum Sprint to allow me to get the achievement despite me being rubbish. It made me feel all warm and fluffy inside.

Posted Nithhogg on 23 October 2012 - 05:17 AM

Wheni get really bored I get a silly amount mobs to chase me and then dump them on a lone bot, wait for the bot to die, and repeat until said bot has all broken armor and can no longer bot. Huzzah!
