Guild Wars 2 fans should be excited for the next expansion that is lined-up to release later today. The developers have put together a launch trailer for the game, as well as the outline that you see below.
The Sky Pirates of Tyria update will launch later today. This update further develops the Living World saga with a new dungeon to explore, new events, rewards and features, not to mention the announcement that Custom Arenas and Spectator Mode is coming out of beta. Details of the update include:
New Story Dungeon: Aetherblade Retreat
Find the hidden entrance to the Aetherblade base and take the fight to the pirates. It’ll take skill, courage, and no small measure of agility to battle through to the Aetherblade Captain and First Mate.
Sea of Sorrows Scavenger Hunt
New permanent content to celebrate the 25th June launch of the new Sea of Sorrows novel by our very own Ree Soesbee, Narrative Designer at ArenaNet.
A variety are available, including Aetherblade caches, a First Mate Horrik miniature companion, a stylish monocle and more.
Skill and Trait Balance Update
The largest balance patch ever is being introduced in this build, which includes significant updates to traits and skills to introduce more viable build diversity. Updates also have been made to some less popular skills to improve their effectiveness.
Custom Arenas and Spectator Mode leaves Beta
Custom PvP arenas allow players to host private matches, and customise their map settings. This feature is leaving beta, which means that Custom Arena Starter Kits will be available for anyone to purchase in the Gem Store. Spectator Mode also is officially out of beta. Together, these two features allow for practice, competitive play and tournaments.
Mortar Mastery Joins the Growing List of World vs. World Abilities
Players can increase their mortar effectiveness by training in Mortar Mastery. Improvements in this line include increasing mortar blast radius, beefing up on damage, reducing skill recharge, and even adding a new skill, Mortar Barrage.
