[GW2] fighting, jumping and crying

So I have been totally sucked into the world of Tyria at the moment.  I am very much looking forward to the expansion, especially with Guild Halls and the Druid specialisation.  I am partway through Season 2 of the Living Story and starting to grow Mawdrey and have about 60% of the world map complete.

So anyway, this boss in the Living Story was absolutely awesome.  I don’t want to say too much cos I know not everyone has played through it – so I’ll just say that it felt very Jason and the Argonauts (that’s a good thing!)


I got to flag 5 of the massive Silverwastes jumping puzzle.  My guildies eventually went on and finished it – well done to them 🙂 though we do now have a skritt infestation 😛

and finally, last night was the Thief Clan night.  Instead of a dance off, we had a synchronised cry in a graveyard….  It was funny at the time 😛  especially when HBA got back from AFK and found us all on pillars… *cough* anyway 🙂

  1. hehe – that was such a shock and a giggle when I turned around – I fully expected a loooong run through the area to catch up and there you all were 🙂

    That statue is Duke Baradin, he is the big bad at the start of all Charr character’s intro story. In GW1 he was a good guy, in fact I’m pretty sure his bloodline was of the true rulers of Ascalon but he ceded control to Adleberg’s line. Adleberg was the king who unleashed the Foefire on his own kingdom in one last desperate (insane!) attempt to destroy the invading Charr. It worked, the Charr invaders were wiped out, but at the cost of his entire people being turned into psychotic ghosts who hate the living. The only Ascalonians who survived in any kind of numbers were the outling settlement of Ebonhawke, and the refugees who crossed the Shiverpeaks to Kryta with the king’s son, Rurik (as in Rurikton in Divinty’s Reach).

    tl/dr: That’s old Baradin, that is!

    A synchronised cry at the graveyard… I would have loved to see it! Dance offs are quite common but this is different. I just imagine myself accidentially walking into a group standing on pillars in a graveyard crying… I like the screenshot!

      haha yes it was a bit different I suppose – if anyone had come across us, I expect they would have run a mile 😉
