Re: Guild Wars 2 (Warning: Image heavy)

One of many interesting phases of the Path of Fire expansion... you don't go up against a god and expect to just win. Actually, you go toe to toe with Balthazar and die :mrgreen: Your next quest is in the afterlife where you have to work your wait out of this limbo like realm and earn the right to r...

Re: Guild Wars 2 (Warning: Image heavy)

This is a grab of a cut-scene towards the end of the game. On board the "Gloria of Tyria", getting ready for a final confrontation with Zhaitan. A huge fleet of airships have engaged the dragon minions in the air and your flag ship is armed with the MEGA-LIT cannon. The GW2 equivalent of a Death Sta...

Re: Guild Wars 2 (Warning: Image heavy)

Somewhere along the way, my necromancer took a wrong turn and got turned into a pink moa. Complete with new combat abilities like pecking frenzy, clawing and loud honking noises

Re: Guild Wars 2 (Warning: Image heavy)

Speaking of Taimi. Probably my second favourite NPC in the game after Canach (a grumpy, sarcastic Sylvari)

Re: Guild Wars 2 (Warning: Image heavy)

Fair enough :D I would of course still recommend checking out the video, even if I can't show off so to speak. Whoever edited together the cut-scenes did a good job of pacing it with the music imho Background: Guild Wars 2 was originally released as a pay once, play forever game. Later it got first ...

Re: Guild Wars 2 (Warning: Image heavy)

Hmm... I could have sworn there used to be a video embedding tag. Ah well, nevermind. The theme music from the game. While you can hear bits and pieces of the piano parts playing at various locations throughout the game, it only plays in full length once you kill Zhaitan (i.e. finish the base game)....

Re: Guild Wars 2 (Warning: Image heavy)

Orr probably is my favourite place in the game though. I've sometimes spent hours just traveling around, doing the dynamically occurring events, boss fights and resource gathering, while admiring the scenery. Just so atmospheric. https://i.imgur.com/uYjrKCO.jpg A slightly different place in Orr, whe...

Re: Guild Wars 2 (Warning: Image heavy)

Skritt.... one of my favourite npc races in the game. Some similarities to "Cranium Rats" in PS:T, in that they get smarter the more of them there are in a group. Individually, they are pathetic, not too bright and very cowardly. Most smaller groups would be naive and fight when cornered. When organ...

Re: Guild Wars 2 (Warning: Image heavy)

Taimi (the little Asura girl) is sharing her plans with my thief character (Commander is the title you are given after the end of the base game, where the Marshal of The Pact appoints you Commander of the Pact, effectively second in command)... https://i.imgur.com/dgVOtsw.jpg https://i.imgur.com/wsd...

Re: Guild Wars 2 (Warning: Image heavy)

I think ArenaNet (the developer) hates people with vertigo. A recurring thing in the game is "diving goggles" found in various places. There is an achievement for successfully finding them all and taking the plunge. Btw, this is a very long way to the bottom and... you have to hit the opening of an ...

Re: Guild Wars 2 (Warning: Image heavy)

While the main game is about uniting the races of the world to work together against the menace of The Elder Dragons (6 are supposed to exist at the start of the game), there is plenty of opportunities to tussle with their minions. Here a group of players are ganging up on a "world boss". You can so...

Re: Guild Wars 2 (Warning: Image heavy)

One of the Elder Dragons however is Mordremoth, the "Jungle Dragon". Not all plant life is friendly (here it has choked the villagers to death)

Re: Guild Wars 2 (Warning: Image heavy)

The Asura and Sylvari are "native" to the jungles though. Same little guy feeling very small in the big jungle
