Eric Flannum and Colin Johanson will be live on our Twitch TV channel in just about one hour.
So states the official twitter account. I’ma watch it and if there’s anything interesting I’ll pass it on in this thread (tomorrow).
So the stream was about half an hour. They had interesting information, mainly about the end game.
Here’s what I gathered from it:
The end game for PvE is getting to Orr. It has mega-meta-event-webs in which you have to hold temples of the gods to open the way to the final dungeon
8 story dungeons
(~25 variations total)
1 final dungeon
As with the original Guild Wars you keep gaining skill points after max level.
There is a specific NPC that uses skill points for trading consumables and special items.
Legendary weapons – have to unlock and are not tradeable.
Unicorn short bow that shoots rainbows…
Greatswords – night and day which you can combine into one O.o;
Easily updated content thanks to the event system – either new stuff or tweaking/fixing the current things, although making new events is a slow process
There will be holiday events – Wintersday, Mad King and stuff, but with twists for each of the races

There’s a punny preview about the Sylvari over at Rock, Paper, Shotgun.
Something I hadn’t seen previously are the new landscape markers – Vistas. These are scattered around the map in variously difficult to reach places, unlocking sweeping cinematic views of the area. To turn these into a bonus shows a justified confidence in Guild Wars 2′s looks – even if it does feel like the musical accompaniment should be the art team singing:
Gaze upon! Look upon!
Stare at all our ****ing work!
It took so long!
So heed our song!
Don’t be an ungrateful jerk!
p.s.: hovering over the images brings out more silly stuff

Just 12 hours remain ’till the last Beta Weekend Event. Come on, I need mah fix @_@
We made a Steam group for the event, or y’know, in general. It’s set to public so join if you’d like. I’ll be in the twitch chat and the show chat (like I always am >_>), and the group’s chat around starting time (noon PT). Hope we can play together ^-^;

Time to get ready then :D
GO GO update powers!
Edit: So it begins.
I have chosen Gandara (Europe) as my home world, I think you can still choose them freely for now right? If we need to move around.

nuuu Beta weekends keep falling on inconvenient weekends for me. I’ll try to get some time in on sunday, don’t want to be too rusty when the game actually comes out for good.July 26, 2012 at 2:33 am #45013
And then there is a blogpost about the Hall of Monuments. And while we’re on the subject of the HoM, why don’t we organize a session for the original Guild Wars? I know there are a few people that would just jump at the opportunity to play that.August 2, 2012 at 4:29 am #46107August 2, 2012 at 3:34 pm #46173August 2, 2012 at 3:43 pm #46174
