ArenaNet teased last week that some sort of doom might befall the Krytan city Divinity’s Reach in the impending living world season, and I’m sad.
Guild Wars 2 players have already seen Lion’s Arch fall once and been rebuilt. World of Warcraft players saw a cataclysm rampage many zones in the old world, creating a literal and figurative rift in the game’s history. It’s been done, and we know how it feels.
It’s probably a ruse or something truly temporary, like just a siege at the gates we get to fight off rather than the total destruction of the city, but I worry anyway. I love the idea of a game that keeps changing up the environment — that’s the idea behind the “living” world, after all — but some locations are too epic to destroy, and Divinity’s Reach is one of them. Dalaran is another I love just the way it is. I’m sure you guys have other ideas, so let’s hear them. What MMORPG city would you not want to see destroyed?
Bonus question: Which MMORPG city would you want to see nuked from orbit?
