As someone who’s played his fair share of both Guild Wars and Guild Wars 2 over the years, I have to confess that I’ve had a poor track record of picking up and understanding Tyria’s history. I actually had to end up watching a few nicely done YouTube videos in which a knowledgable fan took all of the fragments of the game’s history and lore and then put it into an accessible presentation. Even with that, I am frequently clueless.
For MMOs that you’ve been playing for a while, do you have a good grasp on the world’s backstory? Are you a loremaster of reknown or an adventurer who flunked out of history?
