So, full disclosure: I wasn’t very happy with Heart of Thorns. I enjoyed vanilla Guild Wars 2, with a few notable exceptions: my main class wasn’t very strong, everyone was on a different server, things of that nature. But Heart of Thorns was pretty pricey for an expansion, and on top of that, if you didn’t do the “Living World” content while it was still fresh and hot, you had to spend money on it in order to progress. That was a crippling blow to my interest as a whole. Overall, I did not have the same fun that I had with the vanilla game. The mastery felt awkward, clunky and unclear, and the maps, while large, felt pretty empty. They were, however, very pretty. That much hasn’t changed. ArenaNet makes sure you're ready to tackle Elona. The idea that Guild Wars’ world of Tyria is a living, breathing, fluctuating world is fantastic. Path of Fire practically came out of nowhere. We had about a month or so to get ready before we began our hunt … [Read more...] about Guild Wars 2: Path of Fire Review

The developers of Guild Wars 2 have managed to create an MMORPG that is a truly social experience – Practically every aspect of the game rewards you for working with other players. See someone dead or about to be out in the field? Help them out and gain experience for doing so. All classes have the ability to revive other players and NPCs within the game. Need to kill a monster, but someone else is already killing it? No problem! Just help the person already in combat, and you both get experience, and both get your own loot. No kill stealing or monster hoarding needed! This mechanic is in place even if you aren’t in a party together. Want to gather materials on the map, like ore from mining nodes? No worries here either! All ore nodes are player-specific, so even if someone else has just come along and mind that node you wanted, you can too! GW2’s “Dynamic Event” system is also geared towards cooperation between players, with a large variety of events, … [Read more...] about Guild Wars 2: Is It The Best MMORPG Social Experience?
