Asura home instance: before and after personal storyline

We were curious to see how many things change in the home instance once you are done with your personal storyline. Flummi, my mesmer, is the only character that is through with her story so far, so I used hers to see what's in there. I then created a new asura with exactly the same … Continue reading Asura home instance: before and after personal storyline

Ask Nerdy Bookahs (November 21, 2013)

It's time for another "Ask Nerdy Bookahs". We have looked at the questions in the search terms that led people to our blog for which we know we do not have fitting entries and we're trying to answer those questions now. What determines day or night in Guild Wars 2? A full circle of day … Continue reading Ask Nerdy Bookahs (November 21, 2013)

Guild Wars 1 Nostalgia: Costume Maker

I deleted my norn mesmer yesterday. She was my second mesmer and my only norn, but no matter how hard I try, I just do not like playing the norn. I like their lore and everything, but I prefer small races (like dwarves, hobbits, gnomes, asura,...). I also needed that character slot for my new … Continue reading Guild Wars 1 Nostalgia: Costume Maker

My new love…

I created my elementalist months ago... probably on the day of the headstart launch. I never got around to playing this profession, but I really love my Gromff - or as I call him, my "Streifenhörnchen" which would be "chipmunk" in English. Those stripes are adorable! I don't like most of the asura hairstyles for … Continue reading My new love…

5 days with Guild Wars 2

I've been wanting to write about my impressions of the headstart and the game itself but decided to hold off for a little while longer. Part of that was because I rather wanted to play the game and not spend my time writing blog entries that surely, nobody else will read as we're all playing … Continue reading 5 days with Guild Wars 2

The Glorious Rata Sum in Pictures

Guild Wars 2 really is coming. This is the last piece of my screenshot collection showing off the different races' cities - and Lion's Arch. Rata Sum was exactly like I had imagined it just with more vibrant colors and a whole lot more awesome than I would have thought. Enjoy the pictures! In case … Continue reading The Glorious Rata Sum in Pictures

Looking Forward to the Sylvari and Asura

Only a few more days until we can finally get our hands on the sylvari and the asura! Last year, they have been playable at gaming conventions like GamesCom. Have a look at our sPvP videos from GamesCom 2011 to see sylvari and asura in action. However, they were not playable in their respective starter … Continue reading Looking Forward to the Sylvari and Asura

Guild Wars 2: A FAQ for new players

You may already know the first version of this FAQ. I decided to rewrite it, update it and put newer screenshots in. So here is the new version. A very special thank you goes to Tasha Darke for reading through it all. I was hoping for a few bits of corrected grammar but she gave … Continue reading Guild Wars 2: A FAQ for new players

Bookahneer’s Geekwatch (March 2, 2012 – Asura Edition)

Just one little thing today: Al'Ellisande from Wartower did a lore interview with Jeff Grubb about the Asura. Go here to listen to it. That's 44 minutes of Asura-Goodness! :) We're only at 08:00 but it's just as it always is when ArenaNet's lore writers talk about the story: Fascinating and very interesting. We always … Continue reading Bookahneer’s Geekwatch (March 2, 2012 – Asura Edition)
