    No idea if anyone's seen this already:

    http://www.reddit.com/r/Guildwars2/c...ld_wars_2_ama/

    And a doc with some of the answers

    https://docs.google.com/document/d/1...NUI/edit?pli=1

    Some fairly interesting stuff in there, although not a massive amount of detail. One thing I didn't realise is that anet are going to start doing monthly 'State of the Game' posts with the first to come on the 30th.

    Edit: I may have misunderstood/misread something since the only thing I can find related to the State of the Game stuff is this

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hByqoWsnz-I

    which is only about spvp stuff.

    I'm looking forward to these, especially!

    Yeah, State of the Game posts are a great way to keep the lesser informed community abreast of developments [I am a lesser informed community member, as I played 1-2ce a week]

    Looking forward to our session Saturday night, what sort of time works for everyone? I'm aiming to be back in the house for 7:30ish saturday, but it depends on the tubes which have been increasingly rubbish this past fortnight.

    Actually, I don't think that I'll be able to attend our next session at all. Sorry, everyone, apparently unforeseeable family events have a habit of coinciding with our gaming plans. My folks are staying over night as well from Saturday to Sunday, so no chance for me to log on in the late hours.

    DWZippy, if you're about tonight and want to play a bit of lowbie GW2, I would be up for that too.

    Very nice interview with Colin Johanson.

    TLDR:
    They plan some paid expansions, but he's really vague about it, emphasizing how much they like monthly free updates. Yay for us!
    Jan + Feb updates are going to be huge and together be like an expansion.
    The Feb update is going to expand WvW.
    Mac port in progress, Linux port not planned. No console port either.

    Okay since I annoyingly had to bail last weekend, I am certainly up for some lowbie PvE this weekend. Mising my mesmer! How are you looking Saturday night, DW? (Also squirrelfanatic, of course, plus whoever).

    Again, I cannot be there on Saturday evening, since I am invited to a wedding party that is taking place at the other end of the country. But I will be around tonight and am willing to spontaneously join in.

    Concerning the Fire Elemental Powder, I think it costs a tiny bit more than 1 silver. Also, it summons an Ember that follows you around (like a summoned Fire Elemental) and scales to you level (or the zone you are in apparantly, from experience I'd say whichever is lower). It is useful if you can keep it alive, as it offer some nice extra damage output.

    No quick launch bar though means you've got to open your inventory to use them though which is a pity.

    As discussed yesterday in /g-chat, we might do guild events or guild running services for people that would like to acquire these items with a lower level character (for easier leveling for example). I did the run to the NPC that sells Fire Elemental Powder with my level 30 Guardian, the trick is not to get hit by anything. Alternatively, have a few friends with you that beat up the higher level meanies.

    Yeah, I think we'd need to have one high-level participant for the Fireheart Rise run, since there's a chance you'll have to push a couple of events before the Elemental Powder merchant is available. But I'm sure one high-level character would suffice to protect several lowbies.
