Guild Wars 2 posts small patch, plans Classic Guild Wars retrospective Q&A

Guild Wars 2’s patch this week isn’t a whopper like the balancing patch, but it does fix the nasty event bug in Bugtide Coast that plagued MJ and me during our last stream! You can also now sit on benches in the PvP lobby, and a bunch of classes got tweaks – including the Mesmer, which was finally nerfed in PvP.

Maybe more importantly, at least for anyone anxiously awaiting the next episode of the living story season, @that_shaman now estimates based on datamining that we’re likely three weeks away from the launch of that, so expect the next trailer in two.

Meanwhile, for those more into classic Guild Wars even now, ArenaNet is collecting questions and comments about the game that started it all beginning today through Friday; devs will be answering questions about the original game through June 15th.

“Join us to ask questions, ponder mysteries, share your stories and impressions, and generally engage with team members directly involved in our amazing, incredible, beloved, and still vibrant original game, Guild Wars. Have you always wondered about a specific event? Pondered the origins of a storyline or wondered how it ties to Guild Wars 2? Felt curiosity about the origins of a certain creature’s look or animation? We’ll be talking with folks who were involved in Guild Wars design, programming, art, storytelling, and other elements of development. (I’ll post a guest list when we launch.)”

Unfortunate that the PoF rare ecto nerf affects more than just Istan, making even the base PoF maps less desirable, which is not what they needed.

The nerf is a good thing for the game economy. You may get less ectos from PoF farms, yes, but they’ll fetch a better price. It should all even out.

The economy took a nosedive and has desperately needed an adjustment, which would have been fine were it not affecting more than that specific problem area. Instead it creates even more confusing rules about salvage rates and hits the non-farm maps, which already weren’t giving much incentive to play in.

I would rather have seen less rares dropping in Istan instead of this inelegant fix.

I got so excited, I thought it said classic guild wars as in the old GvGs that were in GW1. But it didnt and now I’m less excited.

My poor Iboga got nerfed. :( But, all this attention to GW1 has been wonderful, even if it’s just a few devs doing these updates in their spare time (awesome of them to do so).
