GW2 New Lion's Arch

New Lion’s Arch

Can you believe that after all the screenshot galleries I've made for Lion's Arch in its various stages, I have never made one of the rebuild town? You can see the original Lion's Arch in this post (from April 2012). About two years later, in February 2014, I made a second gallery because I felt … Continue reading New Lion’s Arch

Less than 48 hours now until we finally hear what ArenaNet has planned for Guild Wars 2 with "Heart of Thorns". They also seem to want to celebrate this by giving us players a double XP weekend.
