Jon and I have been playing Guild Wars 2 for quite awhile. He’s a Human Ranger, while I’m an Asuran Elementalist. We are both enjoying the game (especially the level scaling so that we can party together successfully, even when we are a few levels apart) and looking forward to its recently announced first major event.
And what might that first major event be? Why, Halloween, of course!
In Guild Wars, Halloween always meant Lion’s Arch would get redecorated and you could get some themed drops. It looks like Guild Wars 2 will have that, but it appears they have something else envisioned as well. According to the event site there will be a progression of events starting on Monday, October 22. Since Guild Wars 2 seems to have all the “old gods” (read: Guild Wars 1′s gods) being dead, I’m curious to see what form these events will take. Will we be vying for racial (Asuran, Charr, Human, Norn, and/or Sylvari) supremacy rather than Dwayna vs. Grenth?
However it turns out, I’m looking forward to having some fun in Guild Wars 2!
