Flameseeker Chronicles: How to win friends and influence Guild Wars 2's development

By the time this article goes to press, it'll be Halloween in Guild Wars 2.

Flameseeker Chronicles: Preparing for the Mad King in Guild Wars 2

By now, Lion's Arch probably looks a little different than we're used to. It had already taken on a decidedly ghoulish cast in Guild Wars by Friday, so I guess the Mad King's influence shifted by a few calendar days over the course of the 250 years between Guild Wars and Guild Wars 2. ...

The Mad King comes to Guild Wars 2 on October 22nd

Mad King Thorn hasn't been seen in Tyria for over 250 years. Well, lore years, that is. He was actually seen this time about a year ago in the original Guild Wars, which as you know has since given way to its much-heralded sequel. Guild Wars 2's first Halloween event is called Shadow of the...
