Then & Now: Reliving the newbie experience (1-5)

With the recent feature patch, ArenaNet released the new player experience. There has been quite a lot of controversy around the related changes. For example, your skills unlock one by one when you level up. The last one, your elite skill, is not available until you hit level 40 (it was at level 30 before). … Continue reading Then & Now: Reliving the newbie experience (1-5)

Today is Tuesday and as is usual on Tuesdays, we get to see new items in the gem store (and a new trailer). The first item is the Covert Charr Backpack Set for 300 gems.

Welcome to today’s Bookahneer’s Geekwatch and the first Geekwatch in 2014! The place about miscellaneous interesting news related to Guild Wars 2 – and on occasion, other games.

GW2 Lions Arch 1.1

A last look at Lion’s Arch

I know I have already released a post with a screenshot gallery for Lion's Arch, but for quite some time, I've felt it doesn't do the city enough justice. You can see my character in quite a few of those pictures and I actually don't like that at all (and am still waiting for the … Continue reading A last look at Lion’s Arch

All of which I am looking forward to. But I have not been able to find any time frame … Continue reading Rift 3.0: Coming in bits and pieces?

I present to you: Mini Mr Sparkles!

EDIT: I see my post is used as "confirmation" that the only way to get mini Mr Sparkles is from Gamescom. This is NOT true. What is true is that so far, those of us who went to gamescom are apparently the only people who have gotten a code yet. But ArenaNet also said that … Continue reading I present to you: Mini Mr Sparkles!
