Several nagging issues across the game were addressed, including hang-ups in the personal story, raids, and achievements. ArenaNet teased players by adding a “Primeval Dervish Outfit” and scythe to the cash shop, making all Guild Wars 1 refugees pine for that great class.
“A Primeval Dervish outfit, instead of a actual Dervish class… cries in Spanish,” one player said.
It also sounds like there is some movement in the game’s living world storyline: “Peacemakers report a greatly diminished presence of Awakened forces in asuran territories. The Arcane Council nonetheless urges travelers to exercise caution until any remaining malevolent undead are proven to be entirely eradicated.”
In other Guild Wars 2 news, remember the “spyware” debacle from last month? MOP reader Bryan received a support ticket in response to his own inquiry about the nature of what ArenaNet collected from his computer. Though it had been accused of collecting and sending back far more data than necessary, the company is denying that accusation:
“The detection process, which we ran from 3/6/2018 to 3/27/2018, identified if a version associated to one of five separate programs we previously disclosed on 4/14/2018 was running on your computer at the same time as Guild Wars 2. The data sent back to ArenaNet was a yes or no to whether or not we detected one of those programs. No other data was sent to ArenaNet as part of the detection method.”
