Since my last post that contained the game play videos of me as a condition damage engineer, people have shown great interest in what the build actually was and how it came into being. Lewis B from Guild Wars 2 Hub and I worked on this specific build during Beta weekend #3...Read More
The wait that is. The wait for the release of Guild Wars 2, scheduled to arrive on August 28th and the head start will be on August 25th for owners of pre-purchased copies of the game. This past weekend ArenaNet hosted their final beta session and where they allowed us to play the previously unavailable Asura and Sylvari races among other things, you can read the full blog post here.
Apart from the races, a lot of polish had gone into the professions, mainly the traits got an overhaul but also some skills were swapped or altered to better bring the professions up to par with one another.

Well, after five years of waiting, Arena Net finally dropped the bomb and announced the release date for Guild Wars 2! The game will be available for play from August 28th 2012. For the people who have already purchased the game, the head start will kick of on the 25th. You can find their full announcement here.
Yesterday, Arena Net also hosted the second stress test – which over all, was fairly unstable – but hey, that’s why they do them! I managed to record some structured PvP footage, once again as the thief and this time around I actually managed to get the game audio recorded as well! Gotta love it when fail is not your friend. You can find the videos here.
I will be away for the coming two weeks, expect more postings when I return from Vietnam!
Qach you in July!Read More
