The holidays are finally coming to an end. Christmas has passed, the new year is upon us and everyone is getting back into their regular routines. Despite it being a hectic past few weeks there have still been some interesting stories related to GW2 popping up around the web. Below we have gathered together a round-up of our favorite Guild Wars 2 news posts from some of our favorite blogs that our readers might want to check out.
Last month ArenaNet decided to tweak some of the stats and abilities of several of the classes in GW2. One that was altered a good bit was the Mesmer profession. But, it isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Instead of the class getting nerfs across the board there were many improvements made to the Mesmer skills. The writers of Guild Wars Insider took to blogging about the changes and did a great job of breaking down what all the changes mean for this profession.
To find out what all the changes were and to get a full understanding of it all, be sure to check out GWI’s 12/14 Patch for Mesmers post to get all the details.
Gold Farming Tips for Dungeons
Most players that constantly farm for gold and high valued items (such as exotics) stick to popular areas such as The Cursed Shore and tend to stay away from playing through dungeons. The guys over at Guild Wars 2 Riches say that farmers that don’t do dungeon runs are missing out on a ton of fast gold, though. They state that due to diminished returns you’ve really got to mix up your farming spots once in a while and dungeons could be a gold mine.
Learn about the best gold farming paths for dungeons like Citadel of Flame, Honor of the Waves and Ascalonian Catacombs in GW2 Riches’ GW2 Gold Farming – Dungeons CoF, HotW and AC post from this week.
Having a Hard Time Finding Groups for Dungeon Runs?
Everyone knows that finding a full party to run your favorite dungeon with can be a real pain. Some dungeons just aren’t very popular and other times you’ll just get stuck with a bunch of noobs who will slow you down and destroy the run for you. Thankfully, some incredible mind came up with the idea of making a site where players could basically post ads to form groups and, amazingly, it works… FAST. Guild Wars 2 Guru unveiled the wonders of the website, GW2LFG.com this week.
Expansion Coming Soon?
It’s no secret that Guild Wars 2 has been one of the most successful MMORPG’s of the past year or so. Despite the failures of many before it, GW2 has managed to rack up sales and awards even after 2012 closed out. A financial analyst has mentioned that because ArenaNet has done so well, players should expect to see an expansion for the game sometime during the 2nd half of 2013. Guild Wars 2 Junkies has more details on the matter.
GW2 Junkies reports that the Korean financial analyst is key evidence that may put some truth behind the rumors of GW2 getting an expansion sometime this year. Read more by checking out their 2013 Guild Wars 2 Speculation post from just a few days ago.
