[Column] Guild Wars 2: A Threat Approaches

SBFordSBFord Associate Editor - News ManagerThe Land of AZPosts: 16,649MMORPG.COM Staff Uncommon

As we move through November, the approach of the latest Guild Wars 2 seasonal event, The Lost Shores, nears. In today's Guild Wars 2 column, we take examine what's already known and add a few thoughts of our own. Check it out!

Very little is known about the next large event to hit Guild Wars 2 this month, but let’s go over what we do know.  We know the event will be live on the 16th of November, and that it will be a one time event.  If you miss this, you missed it.  We also know it will open up a new map.  This alone is reason to be excited!  But what’s the scope of this event?  Will it just be a small intro to a new map?  ArenaNet is saying that The Lost Shores will be as large, or larger, than the Halloween event that has just passed.  With the way they have their live development teams set up, this could be very true. Not only that, but the changes will be more permanent in general.

I didn’t see any cannons on the ships, so they may have been for trade.

    If it's the Deep Sea Dragon he looks like a Moth. his name is Mordramoth.

    A new map I can dig, I just love the map completion aspect of the game.  Sadly, it's about all I really enjoy though.  Until they hopefully add more systems, that is.

    Wow.  Honestly, I never expected them to have new content out this fast.  Sounds like fun.

    Is there a required level for this event? I'm finally starting to get into GW2 a bit more, so I figure I can plow through to 80 before the 16th.

    I don't recall where, but pretty sure an ANET rep said it was techincally lvl 80 but everyone going would be upscaled like they were during the Mad King battle.
