Guild Wars 2’s Stronghold public beta is today; here’s a guide

    
13
We had a bet running that it would take longer.

You can play Guild Wars 2‘s upcoming expansion PvP mode right now! The Stronghold public beta is today! And then it closes up shop again tomorrow, so if you don’t play it today, you’re going to have to wait. You should probably do that now if you can. Maybe not if you’re at work; your boss probably wouldn’t appreciate your running off to play instead of doing your job. You know what we mean.

Are you nervous because you don’t have the slightest idea how to play the map beyond the universal points of not dying and doing damage to other players? Not to worry; there’s a helpful video guide available from the preview events that should give you a clear picture of how to play. And if all else fails, you can always fall back on the defense of this being a beta wherein no one is an expert just yet. The old standby.

Afternoon update: ArenaNet has now posted its own walkthrough of the new mode as well.

Benthalak They are Hylek, a race of frog/toad people. The current Hylek look toad-like. Those pictured above are the Itzel, a new tribe of Hylek found in the upcoming expansion, and are based on tree frogs, appearance-wise.

And yeah, they look stoned.

If they focused more on PvP they would’ve have lost most of them a few months after release.

EatCandy lordkrall88 What is your point? Yes I am sure “people” ask for “random” things all the time… entirely specific and totally relevant and logical.

But until you give any examples other than flailing blanket statements…
