gwen sneak peek weekend

hooray it’s a weekend of early access to the Guild Wars expansion! but with 150 new skills will i ever be competitive in PvP again?? at least with over 4 million people with the game there’s gotta be some i can still pummel… time for a lot of careful skill description reading and forum trolling. :) oh and of course no release would be complete without a swift kick in the nuts from misbehaving graphics drivers.

blood necro

here’s the blood necro build i’m playing with right now:

awaken the blood, soul leech, vampiric gaze, mark of subversion, life siphon, dark pact, well of blood, and res signet. i’ve got 15 attribute points for blood magic (17 when awaken the blood is active) and the rest for soul leeching. it’s working pretty well and even giving me nice win streaks on weak teams. well of blood is so great.

all good things

halloween is over but it was great while it lasted.  the mad king came to lion's arch to give out treats and play games on monday.  here's some fun screenshots from the event: roaring for the king, paper scissors rock, tripping on absinthe, tripping on witch's brew, reward, matching moon, dance


it's halloween in guild wars!  and it only gets better!  (but i can't spoil anything)  :D

witness lions arch / tombs

gw arena

i’ve been hopelessly addicted to pvp random arena in guild wars this weekend. i think 4v4 is way more fun than 8v8. there are just so many fun turn arounds. i’ve been focusing on necro curses and mesmer illusions and have been able to pretty easily 1v1 anything i come up against. well except for blood magic necro but i’ve been unlocking those skills now so that i can try that out on a different character.
