It has been a long time since I last wrote anything about WvW. What’s even worse I haven’t been playing WvW like I used to do in almost a year. A few days ago the news about this new patch showed up and my first thoughts were: “Wow”, “They should have done this earlier” and finally “This has potential”.
“Is there another option?”
“I mean we are facing this massive threat!! ELDER DRAGONS! They’d annihilate us in seconds!”
“They have to help us…”
Well, apparently they do have a choice. Don’t forget we’re talking about this ancient race, one that has been around for aeons, and who have gathered wisdom beyond any of us.
A few days ago I was talking to a friend of mine, saying I was hoping we would go to the Island of Janthir in the next episode (with the raid wings as a certain step in our journey, while finding Lazarus and the Eye of Janthir in the end). The next day I learned we were going to the Ring of Fire.
With the June 1st update it became even more clear that the ley line energy is acting weird. Not only is the energy much more ferocious than it used to be, there are also so many more places where you can see it flowing and it just makes sense that more people and organizations are interested in the ley line events (as we can read in the Patch notes).
I have spent a lot of time talking to people about World vs World lately, a lot of them veteran players, but also so many people who never set a foot inside this game mode (or did, but got scared away instantly). This article/guide (whatever) is specifically aimed to those newer players, so if you are looking for an in-depth guide on how to play World vs World as a more experienced player it’s probably not what you are searching for.
