    Guild Wars News

    Couldn't really decide where to post this so figured I'd start a new thread for news about the game. Not everyone goes to reddit or the GW2 site but hopefully they all come here

    Last couple of days has brought some news:

    Lions Arch will be rebuilt, you may have already seen some of the scaffolding has gone up so LA is quite different again.

    What's more is that we can take part in molding the new city, initially we can help decide on the naming of certain places by taking part in a poll (ending in 5 days) Poll> https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/5B7WMBF

    Lastly, and the main point of this post, is they have asked for people to come up with party ideas for the reopening and considering RPS are the best events guild in the game I think we should certainly try and sort something out. I had some ideas tell me what you think:



    • Costumer Brawl Tournament
      • Different heats.
      • First to get a crown goes through to next round.
      • If there are lots of people we can have the first groups mad up of 4-5 people.


    • Battle of the bands
      • solo artists group and a group group
      • extra points given to outfits and backup dancers lol.



    • Mass conga...not very imaginative lol.


    Obviously there are pro and cons with each but I'd like to hear you suggestions and comments.

    Maybe we could gather a large group of players to make a scenic tour of the entire Guild Wars 2 world, on foot. We could select some landmarks that are especially pretty and take a few screenshots with the entire group posed in front of them. LA would be the final stop on our grand tour of GW2, and we could march in while doing...something (have to think on that).

    OK second news thread of the day. new blog post from Anet: Upgrading WvW Upgrades. In brief:


    • We’ve removed the supply cost for upgrades.
    • Supply holds and supply shipments will be smaller.
    • We’ve removed the gold cost for upgrades.
    • Individual upgrades are now grouped into upgrade tiers.
    • Upgrading to the next tier now happens automatically over time.
    • There are two tiers for camps and three tiers for all other objectives.
    • Higher tiers take longer to upgrade than lower tiers.
    • Each shipment from a dolyak caravan will reduce the remaining time by a set amount.
    • The time it takes to fully upgrade an objective should still be roughly the same as it was before these changes.


    These are the changes we’ve made to the WvW ability system:

    • We reduced the total number of ability ranks of Guard Killer and Defense Against Guards from 10 to 5.
    • The Applied Fortitude and Applied Strength effects have been removed.
    • Ability lines that increased percentages from 1% to 5% now increase percentages from 2% to 10%.
    • We reduced the total cost of specific siege weapon lines from 75 points to 60 points.
    • We reduced the total cost of the Supply Capacity line from 300 points to 145 points.
    • The Supply Master and Mercenary’s Bane lines remain at 15 points.
    • We normalized all ability progression tracks of five ranks per line to 35 points.
    • We normalized all ability progression tracks of four ranks per line to 15 points.

    Yeah, is this supposed to begin to incentivise people to defend? If that's the case then it doesn't look very good.

    There's some thing s I like in there, the scouts and dolly changes are pretty good, it will make it worth while keeping the route clear and protecting your scout points. Certainly gives more incentives to protect the dollys.

    There are some good things here too, though - you can't troll forts by draining them of supply any more, and the dependence on someone's generosity in investing gold is gone.
