Jeff Grub on Storytelling →
This is really similar to a dev post from BWE2, but here’s Jeff Grub talking about the different stories going on in Guild Wars 2. Countdown to headstart: 32 days.
What I've Got For BWE3
So, I’m reiterating part of what I said in the video I put out last night right after BWE3 ended, but I’m currently sorting all of my video. I thought I’d post up for you guys what all I’ve got that I’ll be working with. A lot of screen shots from all of the major cities. A lot of vistas from the asura and sylvari areas, as well as Lion’s Arch. The entire...
GWI Interview with Jonathan Sharp on PvP →
Guild Wars Insider’s interview with Jonathan Sharp: Not much big stuff in here other than an early explanation of how the new SPvP map (Legacy of the Foefire) works for scoring and some tips on it. Oh, and ranger pets are supposedly going to be fixed.
Beta Builds and Theorycrafting
So it’s been brought to my attention that you folks really like it when I talk about builds in The Structure. So, I thought as the BWE3 edition, we’d do some theorycrafting. But first, let’s talk about the beta! Beta Weekend Event 3 In case you live under a rock, we get to play the asura and sylvari for the first time this beta! We’re also starting completely fresh this...
BWE3 Servers and WvW →
Very few servers this time around, and better WvW algorithms!
My Plans For BWE3
Since we now know everything we’re getting in BWE3, I thought it was time I made some plans and let you guys in on them. For the weekend, I will largely be covering asura and sylvari stuff along with some more SPvP (tournaments!). Unfortunately, since they’re wiping everything going into the weekend, I won’t have a chance to make up for the explorable mode footage frmo last beta...
BWE3 Content →
I know it’s a day late, but I was spent all day building this new computer and re-installing the OS and all of my programs and such, so sorry for getting it to you late. Anyway, we get asura, sylvari, the ability to essentially buy gems in advance for launch, a new SPvP map, a new PvE map, and keg brawls!
Profession Guide: Necromancer
The Necromancer This profession guide is accurate as of BWE2. A necromancer is a practitioner of the dark arts who summons the dead, wields the power of lost souls, and literally sucks the lifeblood of the enemy. A necromancer feeds on life force, which he can use to bring allies back from the brink or cheat death itself. -Official Guild Wars 2 Website Overall Theme The necromancer is a bit...
New PC For BWE3
Getting ready to crank out a profession guide real quick before I head to bed, but I thought I’d post the specs I’ll be running for BWE3. I’m building a totally new system tomorrow, so here are the details: 2.3 TB HDD 16 GB DDR3 1600 MHz RAM EVGA GeForce 560Ti 1 GB (faster memory than the 2 GB cards) i5 5570 processor, to be overclocked to...
The Asura Problem
This week, for The Structure, we’re going to venture off the beaten path a little bit. It haven’t seen this talked about for awhile, but it’s probably going to resurface and be debated again since the asura are in BWE3. “It” is the “asura problem”. This is going to be a good deal shorter than most articles as personal stuff has restricted some of my time...
ANet Devs: Guild Wars 2 Endgame →
I can’t embed this unfortunately, but roughly an hour ago, ArenaNet developers Eric Flannum and Colin Johanson sat down on Twitch and talked about the endgame in Guild Wars 2 and what makes it so special. They talk about Orr, legendary weapons, dungeons, and more!
Sorry For Disappearing
Hey everyone! Sorry for disappearing on you all. The holidays and then some personal matters came up that have kept me from writing. I promise tonight I’ll be writing stuff again. I’ve still got to finish those profession guides, and of course I’ll have The Structure later tonight as well. I’m also upgrading to a new computer in the coming week, and I’ll post specs...
Asura and Syvlari in BWE3 →
At long last, we’ve got the news so many have been hoping for: we get to roll asura and sylvari in the next beta!
The Golden Rules of Guild Wars 2 →
Today we got a nice glimpse from ArenaNet into their driving principles and guidelines in making everyone’s favorite new MMORPG.
Profession Guide: Mesmer
The Mesmer This profession guide is accurate as of BWE2. Mesmers are magical duelists who rely on deception and confusion to keep their opponents in check. Indecision is their greatest ally. Using powerful illusions to distract, they make sure they never go toe to toe with an enemy; they use their powers and tactics to set up an unfair fight. -Official Guild Wars 2 Website Overall Theme Chaos....
Profession Guide: Engineer
The Engineer This profession guide is accurate as of BWE2. Masters of mechanical mayhem, engineers tinker with explosives, gadgets, elixirs, and all manner of deployable devices. They can take control of an area by placing turrets, support their allies with alchemic weaponry, or lay waste to foes with a wide array of mines, bombs, and grenades. -Official Guild Wars 2 Website Overall Theme If the...
Profession Guide: Warrior
The Warrior This profession guide is accurate as of BWE2. The warrior is a master of weapons who relies on speed, strength, toughness, and heavy armor to survive in battle. A warrior can shrug off blow after blow to stay in the fight, all the while building up adrenaline to fuel his offense. -Official Guild Wars 2 Website Overall Theme The warrior is the epitome of martial prowess. Forget those...
My SPvP Builds: The Good, The Bad, The Ugly
I thought I’d share with everyone a few of the builds I’ve been using in SPvP, so here are my top and bottom three builds. I’ll start with the top three, and then cover the bottom three and how I think I can improve them (if possible). Quad-Dagger Thief So this build was an improvement on the one I’d used during BWE1. Essentially, I whittle enemies down and use...
