Flameseeker Chronicles: Planting the seeds of memory in Guild Wars 2

They say that those who don't learn from history are doomed to repeat it. I don't know who "they" are, but I don't think that particular truism was ever meant to cover a literal repeat of history. Guild Wars 2's latest living world content release has players doing exactly that: planting memory see...

Flameseeker Chronicles: Navigating Guild Wars 2's Tangled Paths release

I was late playing Guild Wars 2's latest update, Tangled Paths, because I was on an airplane when it went live. That might be a better excuse than "the dog ate my homework," but I don't have one for "a dog ate my character," which is exactly what happened as soon as I got home and logged in. Rea...

Flameseeker Chronicles: Learning from Tyria's past in Guild Wars 2

The latest Guild Wars 2 living world release, Echoes of the Past, seems to be a big hit.

A dragon hourglass commemorates Guild Wars 2's Echoes of the Past

In advance of the next chapter of Guild Wars 2's living world story, Echoes of the Past, ArenaNet sent us a totally rad hourglass with dragons on it.

Flameseeker Chronicles: The case for mounts in Guild Wars 2

I love my new rug. It's a little on the thin side, but it's got a nice pattern and gets great gas mileage. It floats high enough off the ground that my cats can't get hair all over it, although it also probably helps that it exists only inside the world of Guild Wars 2. The only drawback is that...

Flameseeker Chronicles: Guild Wars 2's gender divide

When I sit down to write an installment of this column that is strongly critical of Guild Wars 2 -- a game I love, in case that was ever in doubt -- I try to follow a simple format in order to keep my criticism from turning into a venting session. That format is to establish that there is a problem...

Guild Wars 2's second feature pack dropped last week, bringing balance changes, new collection achievements, a rework of the trading post, and upgrades to the new player experience.

Flameseeker Chronicles: What's next for Guild Wars 2?

Happy second anniversary, Guild Wars 2!
