Just a few more days till Wintersday! Oh, how much do I love this time of year! My Wintersday tree in Divinity’s Reach is looking all shiny and snowy, my Shoulder Snowflakes refilled with fresh Shiverpeaks snow and some nice Wintersday gifts are sitting in my bank already.
I really like what happened to us last year, a really enjoyable Season 3, the new expansion Path of Fire that took us back to Elona and the Crystal Desert, and the kick-off for the Living Story Season 4 (probably my favorite patch so far in-game).
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).
