Today, I’m picture-guiding you through Divinity’s Reach. After going through Lion’s Arch during the first BWE, I realized that I had forgotten to look at the human capital. Still, when BWE2 started, I headed straight for the Black Citadel because I had found it much more interesting at first glance. Also, how exciting can it be? Yet another medieval-looking town. *yawn* Right? Boy, was I wrong. Well yes, it is a medieval-looking town, but at the same time, it’s still very pretty and had cute little corners and interesting architecture. My favorite part was the laundry in a backyard. I also have pictures from Hoelbrak which I wanted to show first but by popular demand (well, two people on Twitter), I am going to show Divinity’s Reach first. ;)
And now, before I present you my gallery, here’s a little information about Divinity’s Reach. Lion’s Arch had been the capital before but Divinity’s Reach took its role after it had been flooded (by the rise of Orr). The Wiki describes the city as a melting pot with residents coming from Cantha, Elona and Ascalon. I was in a part of the city where my Elonian warrior would feel right at home, I think. It’s a bit difficult for me to say which picture is from which district of the city, though, as I was walking through it without my interface showing up and without staring at the map all of the time. But as usual with the Wiki, you can find plenty of information about the city and its areas there.
It took me quite some time to take all those screenshots, sort through them and upload them here. However, they’re not just for looking. If you want to use them (e.g., as a desktop wallpaper, for fanart, in your blog,…) feel free to do so – as long as it complies with ArenaNet’s copyright, of course, and you’re not saying it was you who took those screenshots. ;)
Edit (August 3, 2013): Something changed in Divinity’s Reach with the July release. This is the area of the Great Collapse.
