A fairly interesting straw poll sharing how much net gold people claim to have. Of course, since it’s open to anyone without having to prove their assets then people can just lie. However, the most popular range is what I would have expected, with the second most common one being surprisingly low.
On the 5th of April, at 20:00 GMT, a large group of dedicated warriors left Fort Trinity in the Straits of Devastation. Lead by the brave commanders Witherheart (RPS/EU) and Spiritface (Relics of Orr/NA), this band of heroes set out to liberate Orr once and for all.*
Their adventures have already been extensively covered in three of my previous posts (to be found here, here, and here). Yet when selecting the pictures to do so, I found several screenshots that I really liked but that did not fit the story. With this post, I’d like to rectify that. And I would have done so sooner (and not more than two weeks later), but I was unable to because of a vacation. Still, enjoy these very special screenshots!
*Let’s just ignore that other attempt to liberate Orr for the time being, as it messes up the narrative.
What on Tyria is going on with the guy in the top left of the first image? How’d he get into that pose!?
Great stuff as per Vlup.
I can’t be the only one to have noticed that the monster designs in Disney’s forthcoming Maleficent have a startling similarity to the sylvari and their ilk. That dragon is pretty cool, too.

For info - a list of zones where the megaserver has been rolled out so far.
To me, this is a surprising amount of maps. Sure, most are all low population but Straits of Devastation and not Malchor’s Leap? Really? I know the former only has one temple but I would still imagine that the population can spike fairly frequently.
List is from the official Facebook page.
Folks, I present the greatest screenshots of the week.
Gandara (that’s in the EU) did a weird ruminant march… thing culminating in Fort Trinity. Those of you who know my history will remember that I dabbled in the grass-eating side of life for a while, but this is taking things to a whole new level. It’s Doylfest ‘14.
A Chew-Chew Train.
Some screencaps of some recent personal story steps I did. Over the past few days I took my mesmer on a personal story marathon.
Some of these are just so purty. Didn’t edit out titles or loading circle because lazy.
I absolutely agree. It’s strange how these unique loading screens are not used elsewhere in the game - perhaps an artifact of how much effort was put into the personal story during development.
I also find it weird that sometimes the art doesn’t actually reflect the content of the mission sometimes.
While I just posted about my personal problems with the forthcoming megaserver system in GW2, this week’s Relics of Orr episode covers the other potential issues - including guild missions and the lack of a ‘district’ system. Kate (that’s spiritface) does a great job at articulating these things pretty much for the five-minute mark onwards.
The episode lasts just over an hour and contains a lot of great content for anyone who, like me, is a little cautious about the megaserver system.
They also mention last Saturday’s The World Vs. Orr too at the end! And play that cool video. Although it is the audio version of the podcast so you can’t see it… but it’s still cool!
I’d recommend putting it on and zerging around the Edge of the Mists for an hour. That’s what I do anyway.
