Prepare to escape from Lion's Arch in Guild Wars 2's next content release

For over 250 years, the city of Lion's Arch has been a place for players of Guild Wars 2 and its predecessor to call home.

Flameseeker Chronicles: The greatest Guild Wars 2 love story ever told

I enjoy the Twisted Marionette fight, and I'm looking forward to smacking some wurms if I can ever make it off the overflow servers, but what I really love about Guild Wars 2's latest content release, The Origins of Madness, is its emphasis on characterization.

"GIANT KILLER LADY ROBOT!" is just what I yelled after seeing the Twisted Marionette world boss because I can't think of many things cooler than...

Flameseeker Chronicles: Why Guild Wars 2 shouldn't replicate Destiny's wedge

When I look back at a year of Guild Wars 2 releases, one thing stands out to me: I really like Kasmeer, Braham, Marjory and Rox, and I'm not alone. ArenaNet's four newest iconic heroes have remained steadfastly popular in the midst of other criticism of GW2's living story. They're not universally...

Flameseeker Chronicles: The trouble with Scarlet in Guild Wars 2

Scarlet Briar has a lot of enemies. She's set up a little empire at the top of Guild Wars 2's hated character list, roasting marshmallows on the thousands of critical forum posts she's inspired. ArenaNet already has the living story's current arc planned out, but that hasn't stopped a number of...

Flameseeker Chronicles: November is controversy month in Guild Wars 2

November sucks. The only good things about it are food, my wife's birthday, and the birthdays of any other November babies (happy birthday). Halloween is over, Thanksgiving is at the end of the month, and Black Friday is a thing that still happens. Thank the Six it's December now. Get out of my...
