It is happening to big companies with multiple games, so I guess it was bound to happen to ANET, I just never thought it would.
These are the go-to sites you'll generally see recommended.So I'm just jumping back in after years of being away. I'm a lvl 80 Guardian and I feel like I'm so lost and outdated with my build. Is there a recommended guide for a flexible Guardian build in the current meta? I just want something to work towards casually in PvE either solo or with friends. Any help would be great!
If you plan on coming back and playing for a while, Path of Fire is 50% off right now on the official website, and the mounts are complete game changers. I'd recommend grabbing the expansion just for those, though following where its story takes you would be a pretty good way to get back into things too.Hello guys! I just came back to Guild wars 2 after a big break. Last time I played was when the first expansion got released HoT. I'm not sure if I finished it or not. Is there any recommended guide for new players, where to proceed, what to do next, do i get the new expansion ASAP etc?
I remember some of the living story was locked cause I didn't login, I'm guessing this is still going to be the case.
Anything else I should know?
Thoughts and opinions on the latest update:
The new zone is amazing and beautiful and addresses the complaints that many people had about lack of meta-zones. It really feels like a final test, as it brings in the mastery traversals from all the previous zones and most of the mechanics of the zone battles require the player base to use all their knowledge to complete. I was in probably one the first map instances and everyone was able to complete the meta with no problem, so it's not as complex as Dragons stand or Auric basin, but it did feel satisfying.
Yes, many people called that Aurene would survive and Joko's magic would save her. I didn't need any crazy twist, it was obvious she was going to come back to life. To fulfill the prophecy she had to die, nothing about it said she had to stay dead. I'm happy we got to hear her voice and ride with her to finish Kralk. I do wish we had one more chapter at the beginning of the story giving everyone a little more time to ponder what to do without her, but we did have months of real time to fret over that.
I think everyone took a screenshot of the goodbye with Aurene.
I'm disappointed that there were several noticeable absences in this final instance. Kas and Jory were a given, we knew where they were after the last episode and what they were up to, helping in Elona and dealing with refugees. The real problem was Canach having absolutely no lines at all. The only thing that could have possibly happened there is a recording scheduling conflict, but even then they could have at least allowed you to talk to him at some point in text form.
It's obvious that going forward several characters will no longer by joining us on our adventurers. Rox being the obvious one. I think Braham is with us for the long haul, wherever the story takes us next. The dragons have been dealt with for now, with Aurene basically taking the role of a new god and elder dragon. It would be nice to see the next living world chapter tackle a smaller story, maybe something more political. I'd love to venture into the Charr homelands.
Finally, I don't think the skyscale will be replacing my griffin for general movement. It's way to slow and I can't figure out how to land.
I have to wonder if lack of appearence and dialogue has to do with the voice actors. Like if they're too busy with other projects they can't get them in on time then that character simply doesn't show up. With Canach since he was already around they couldn't make him not appear like with Kas and Jory. But regardless, yeah, it is a bit weird. Actually looking at the wiki has literally neither character shown up at all since the end of Path of Fire? Hell Jory only showed up for one part of PoF. I wonder what's up with that.
There also could be a worry of too many characters.
I still want to know what the hell is happening to Zojja.
The personal story is hot garbage in comparison to the two expansions. The quality has only improved.
Kas and Jory had voiced dialog in the last LW update, or at least Jory, even though they weren't there in person. If you hung around by Taimi and the comms you could catch several exchanges with Jory and Taimi. They wereI have to wonder if lack of appearence and dialogue has to do with the voice actors.

I think you'll have your hands full once you get to the flying mount collections. Most of the LV season 3 and 4 maps have some nice swag associated with them. There's a side story after the end of heart of thorns that was added as an epilog that's rather easy and gets you an ascended weapon.I started playing this again after doing most of the heart of thorns stuff...turns out that was 3 years ago...holy fuck
Either way, theres so much to do now, and I forgot I was like 90% of the way to having my Dawn Legendary Sword finished. Any other recommended activities, aside from doing the living story and path of fire story missions?
oh, I didn't know about that. Already have ascended weapons, but an easy extra one won't be a bad thing.I think you'll have your hands full once you get to the flying mount collections.

HOPESo after being away from the game due to a lot of reason (hurricane maria pass through here the same week the PoF expansion dropped!), I’m back in this and I’m interested in making my first legendary. Which legendary do you guys recommend for ab Asuran Holosmith?
Noticed I need the Gift of the Mists, means playing PvP. I have never tried pvp in this game.HOPE
The Hylek Optimized Projectile Experiment, "a culmination of Hylek alchemy, Asuran design and traditional crafting techniques." It's very cool.
Since Holosmith uses Pistol for both Power and Condition Damage builds, being able to freely swap stats and sigils will be very useful too.
The Gift of the Mists requires a Gift of Battle from the WvW reward track, but the Gift of Glory and Gift of War can be gotten from buying the items on the Trading Post.
WvW is super easy. Just jump into the maps and look for someone tagged up. Grab supply, use supply where they tell you, kill other people. Do the WvW dailies and boosters to level the reward track as quickly as possible. Just remember to make sure the gift of battle reward track is selected.
