It’s a day of grand restoration in Guild Wars 2, starting with the re-opening of Lion’s Arch. Today’s patch debuts what ArenaNet is calling New Lion’s Arch, a rebuilt trading harbor following its destruction last year by the hand of Scarlet Briar.
Lion’s Arch isn’t the only thing that’s making a return. The dev team also restored sections of the personal story that were removed for retooling. The revamped storyline features minor and major improvements, including allowing solo players to finish the final missions.
Want more? Guild Wars 2 players will discover the old trait system gone and the new specialization system in its place, skill points converted into spirit shards, a better leveling experience, and some combat conditions reworked to allow for more flexibility.
You can go on two New Lion’s Arch video tours after the break!
