I haven’t been much interested in Guild Wars 2 since they have a nasty habit of taking content away but it sounds like the latest update may be doing something about that. Seems there is a way to experience past living story content. I don’t have all of the details but from what I’ve read around the internet, there’s going to be something called the living journal. It will allow you to play past story content as well as do new challenges related to it for elite items. The Gates of Maguuma is supposed to start today. I’m hoping it rekindles my interest in a game that I had a lot of fun in. Still wish they would’ve gone the route of expansions like their first game but I’ll settle on this living journal if it works the way it’s been explained.
Thanks to the latest Diablo 3 expansion, it’s rekindled my interest in Diablo 3 more than I expected. After Highgrade and I beat the expansion on torment difficulty, we decided to try the adventure mode last night and it has my attention! You are able to travel around the world and complete bounties which reward a ton of experience and loot. There’s a lot going on in that mode but I hope to have some video of our antics posted sometime this weekend.
On the FF14 front, a major patch has dropped that gave our small house a lot more floor space to work with as well as NPC’s to mend our gear and for us to sell our junk to as well as buy some basic crafting materials from. We have a garden now and are starting to do more Labyrinth of the Ancients thanks to the loot restriction being removed. It appears to be the easiest gear grind in the game due to the currency it drops and the really neat looking armor.
It’s been awhile since I’ve posted anything new so figured I’d poke the blog with something! I hadn’t mentioned it here on the site but I did on the forums, some of our membership have been playing Final Fantasy 14 and some more Diablo 3 in preparation of the new expansion coming later this month. If you haven’t tried it yet, FF14 plays like a true RPG.
For those that are going to get the expansion for Diablo 3, now’s the time to play! They have given us a 50% experience boost up until the expansion releases so you can take your time and get your level up on your characters. They’ve also made loot a lot more class friendly compared to earlier. Anyways, that’s all I could think of this go. I’ll try and get a post going every week like I used to so keep an eye out for my ramblings here and in the forums!
Starting November 26th, we will have access to the Thaumanova Reactor fractal on top of several other new fractals. Bare in mind that the fractals of the mist are random so you aren’t guaranteed to see all the new stuff in one go. Also, there was a loot update for fractals so get grinding!
Looks like more content before the end of this month. The Tower of Nightmares starts on October 29th in Kessex Hills. Looks like another goody for your home instance as well as some kind of cleansing skill that can be used by all classes. Follow the link for more info!
Yet another content update. This time it’s for Twlight Arbor. They are introducing a level 80 wing which most likely will only stick around for a few weeks. If you can keep up with these limited time releases, this one looks like its going to be fun. More info can be found on their blog!
That’s right! They’ve revamped the big nasty tequila named dragon and the event is now live. Dive in! Make sure to knock out the achievements so you can get a set of undead dragon wings as a back piece skin!
Scarlet has revealed herself and her twisted clockwork creatures across Tyria. This invasion event has been a blast after the first day and very profitable if you are in need of crafting materials and money. For more information, head over to the official GW2 blog post about this event!
More content on the way tomorrow! I especially like the potential weapon skins from this event and it may bring to light what the deal is with the tent in Divinity’s Reach that I noticed a few days ago. The Queen’s Jubilee starts August 6th and it brings many interesting changes to the game. If you haven’t already, make sure to follow the supplied link so you can read up on the changes!
The Cutthroat Politics portion of the living story has begun! Who will you vote for? Ellen Kiel the hero/investigator or the wheeling and dealing politician Evon Gnashblade of the Black Lion Trading Company? We as players get to decide!
