ArenaNet currently has a World Boss Event running where you get an extra chest for each world boss. I decided to jump into the game and kill a few world bosses again. I haven’t played the game in quite some time and the world bosses – while rather brainless to kill – are a nice casual pastime.
At the same time, I think this screenshot of fighting Taidha Covington shows quite well what I dislike about Guild Wars 2. Please, tell me where the boss is? Apart from a lot of players standing in one small spot, there is also just too much going on when it comes to combat animations. Fire on the ground, flowers and grass, explosions… I wish they had chosen a more minimalistic approach here. Still, as I said, world bosses are easy enough anyway, so it’s not necessary to see what’s going on. But in other fights that require more coordination, this is just too annoying.
