Organizing Raids

Hello CV,

Many people in the guild have expressed interest in creating a group to delve into raid content. I personally have great interest in such a group coming into being. If you are interested in such a group, please post up what days of the week you would be free to hop into some high tier content and have some fun. In general we would probably be looking to spend 1 and a half to 2 hours per raid session. Experience is not needed for this group – we will grow and get better together.

Thank you for making CV’s 13th Birthday such a special one!

CV Celebrates its 13th Bday

Let’s celebrate this special occasion and have ourselves a wonderful time!

May Release #1: Flashpoint

The White Mantle launched a surprise attack on Divinity’s Reach. Betrayed from within and assaulted from without, the city fought a battle on two fronts. Queen Jennah rose to the occasion, revealing just how powerful a mesmer she is, and with a monumental effort on the part of the humans and their allies, the city broke the siege.
Caudecus Beetlestone, once the legate minister, was commanding the White Mantle forces, bringing his plot to take the Krytan throne to its conclusion. He’d been working on it for decades, but his plan was foiled. Loyalists and allies of the queen found him in his mansion. Before he could be taken into custody, however, the snake murdered his own daughter, Demmi, an honorable agent of the Order of Whispers—and a friend to many.

Caudecus’s subsequent death was an unsatisfactory revenge for her loss. With their leader dead, the White Mantle forces fell into chaos, and the Seraph and Shining Blade picked off the stragglers with ease. In the wake of the battle, the Divinity’s Reach prison bulged with inmates. A search of Caudecus’s manor revealed one of Lazarus’s aspects—the objects into which he safeguarded portions of his soul.

This discovery brought Lazarus’s true identity into question. Who is Lazarus? Marjory continues to shadow him, but does she know what she’s getting herself into? That question will have to wait, because Taimi is on the verge of completing her antidragon device. The Elder Dragons grow stronger every day, and thus Tyria becomes ever more chaotic and dangerous. Taimi’s device could be the answer that saves the world.

New Legendary Torch: Flames of War
A new legendary weapon is now available. Speak with Grandmaster Craftsman Hobbs in Lion’s Arch to learn how to craft the new torch precursor, Liturgy, and forge the new legendary torch, Flames of War.

Raids
Legendary armor is now available in the game. Complete the final step in the collection to receive the Refined Envoy set. Combine that armor with the recipe components in the Mystic Forge to produce the most sought-after armor in the Guild Wars® world.
Rune Swapping: A key functional attraction of legendary armor is the ability to swap the stats of the item on the fly. Since runes and infusions are as impactful a choice as the stats on the armor, we have altered the behavior of these items to allow players to swap runes and infusions from legendary armor at will. Ascended armor will not be affected by this change.

Items
Blood Rubies, Jade Shards, Petrified Wood, and Winterberries have been added to material storage.
Structured Player vs. Player
Added the Draconis Mons Reward Track.

Leaks (HEAVY expansion spoilers, read at your own risk)

The same guy that leaked accurate information about the first expansion/updates has posted an image album that throws almost everything about the new expansion wide open. Specialization screens, the new masteries, DETAILED 3D model renders and overworld map images, you name it. If you choose to view the album, you will not be able to speculate about “where are we going next” during the final two episodes of season 5 as there is no question about it.

If you so wish to spoil it for yourself, you can find it here. Please keep leak discussion within the forum.

Coming May 2: Flashpoint

Flashpoint will be the 5th of 6 episodes, presumably before the next expansion drops.

HoT Available for USD $29.99

Guild Wars 2: Heart of Thorns is the first expansion for Guild Wars 2. Founded on the idea that the journey is the goal, the expansion continues the Guild Wars 2 tradition of challenging the conventions of MMOs to fulfill the promise of what online worlds should be.

Super Adventure Box is back!
