Guild Wars 2 players will be able to get their collective hands on Heart of Thorns very soon, and that’s a good thing. The final test weekend for the expansion will kick off on October 2nd; the test will keep some parts of the final expansion tucked away but will generally allow you to explore things to your heart’s content. Among the things you can explore: Druids, the elite specialization for Ranger, and a font of astral power that can support and heal allies.
This final test event will also allow players to try out the game’s raiding, which was the subject of an entire panel helpfully embedded and watchable just below. If that inspires you to make some music or video for the game, so much the better; a partner program is being introduced that will allow community members to receive extra promotion from ArenaNet for producing content about the game. So get to streaming, and get ready for the final test weekend in just a few short days.
