Guild Wars 2 Massive Event Teased has a tease for "The Lost Shores," an update coming to Guild Wars 2 later this month. There are just a few screenshots, and the following dramatic tease: "Something stirs in the Sea of Sorrows… Unravel a mystery of monstrous proportions in The Lost Shores, a massive one-time world event that will change Tyria forever!" Thanks sauron.

I liked the Halloween event, though I didn't partake in much of it. Tried the whole "Thorn's minions vs villagers" thing once, and I spent ten minutes just running around a (seemingly) empty maze, and got terribly bored of it. I'm sure the guys who got to hunt the villagers had more fun, but in general people don't really like playing a fucking rabbit. (or at least I don't.)

And I suck at the jumping puzzles, so I skipped the clocktower thing after seeing a video. That would have given me an aneurysm for sure.

But the mad king mini-dungeon was cool, and the scavenger hunt was pretty fun too. All in all, for something they released absolutely for free, it was awesome.

2 characters at 80 now! Woot!


What I found was that the classes are so massively different from each other, that they either make or brake your experience. My Elementalist was kinda stressing and after reaching level 80, I really did not want to continue. But then I made an engineer and had more fun than ever. My Mesmer is also really nice, after I understood how it works. I tried a warrior and deleted him at level 15 because he was simply too boring.
It is really hard to find the right trait spec. Everything needs different stuff if you want to be really good at it. sPvP, WvW, WvWvW, dungeons, solo PvE, group PvE, group of mobs, etc, etc, etc. Not only different traits, but also different abilities, different gear and different weapons.

Everyone says something different too, if you try to find help on the net. I like this, but I understand that on the start (and I mean the first 2 months) this can be frustrating. WoW vanilla wasnt much different though, just not that massive gameplay-wise.

I love this game, and I actually like that it doesnt have a subscription. With WoW I spend every second I could spare in it, because I felt like I was in some kind of race. But here, I sometimes dont play it for days, but I dont feel the fun declining at all. Actually its getting better and better each time I play, because there is still some much to explore and grasp.

The only thing I dont really like is the lack of zones. I could use much more zones. Especially level 80 zones. I hope they will fix that with their monthly events.
Bug fixing could go a little faster too, but I never have been angry at anything in this game, like I was in WoW from day one. My keyboard didnt have to feel my fist even once yet.

Waiting for BIS to come back to their senses and do a real ArmA 2 successor.
