Hopefully Lis' hands-on overview
of Guild Wars 2's
latest update this morning whetted your appetite for achievements, group content, and more. Frost and Flame: The Gathering Storm's patch notes are up
so that you can mentally prepare for when the update goes live later today.
The update advances the living story while adding two specific achievements tied to this continuing saga of refugees and something sinister coming up from underground. Players will also be able to pick and choose achievements for the daily reward, experience better event scaling in a few high-level battles, and check out the new Spirit Watch PvP map.
Also coming with The Gathering Storm are the much-vaunted guild missions. These unlockable activities are tied into specific upgrades and personal rewards for participating players.
