Guild Wars 2 races to fix Path of Fire login and instance creation issues during launch weekend

With the popularity of this month’s Guild Wars 2: Path of Fire, the pressure is on for ArenaNet to keep the game running as smoothly as possible for all veteran, new, and returning players. While we have been hearing positive word-of-mouth about the expansion, there have been some serious issues that have kept many players from enjoying it – including our own columnist.

Login difficulties are the start of ANet’s woes, and the studio is racing to fix them. Even more dire are instance creation problems, which were serious enough to elicit a statement by Mike O’Brien, who said that the team has been “working on the connection and story instance creation problems that have been cropping up during peak hours in Europe.” The Guild Wars 2 boss said that the team believes the underlying issues have been fixed but will be keeping an eye on the situation to make sure this is true.

Meanwhile, there are smaller bugs and corrections that have been addressed via hotfixes to bolster the new expansion.

Let’s assume that you’re not being held back by any of these problems but you are struggling a bit with the new Crystal Oasis mastery. Dulfy has you covered in this tremendous guide:
