Been a while since I have posted anything, let alone the sparseness of Tweets to show any indication of vital signs, but fret not! I have been lost in the 2nd war of the guilds aka. Guild Wars 2. It seems almost fitting that after watching streams for just over 6 years (hailing back from the Justin.TV days) that I would take a 6 week break from it to catch up and enjoy some of MMO goodness.
So, what does this post and its significance mean? Well, for starters: Watching streams again. It has been, what feels like months, away from Twitch. Some new things and some format changes are to be done in the coming weeks, but nothing too drastic. My time getting reacquainted with Guild Wars 2 and all of its updates that have happened in my year of absence was fulfilling, but it is almost time to move on!
Today marks the Season 2 finale of the Living World for Guild Wars 2, and interestingly enough, rumors of an expansion due to ArenaNet trademarking “Heart of Thorns.” Exciting times to come! Especially, since ArenaNet has stated before that an expansion was unlikely due their commitment to releasing updates via the Living Story structure.
In any case, I hope there is a true expansion coming. After being left with a bitter taste of what Season 1 of the Living Story, which was one of the main reasons for my hiatus, Season 2 was miles ahead in terms of quality and writing. Sure, the story still is not up to par with other writings found in other games out there, but it suffices nonetheless and was enjoyable (for me).
For the latest updates, guides, and Guild Wars 2 fancies outside of the official forums, I implore any GW2 enthusiast to drop in from time-to-time on the GW2 Reddit, Dulfy, and anything that can be data-mined by that_shaman. Free plugs all around!
For those that do play Guild Wars 2 on the US Servers, feel free to contact me in game. As a frequent dungeon-delver, one can always find me running paths after the daily server reset and at Tequatl about an hour or so beforehand in Sparkly Fen. Below are some names in which one could use to find me. See you all in game and very soon on Twitch!
