Just over a year ago, I posted a guide to the newly introduced Collections and how one can go about completing them with the least effort possible. The launch of Heart of Thorns saw the coming of a multitude of new ones as well as the expansion of the first bunch.
So, its fair to say that back until October I had hardly touched Guild Wars 2 in months, if not almost a year. I’d fallen out of love with a franchise that had consumed many many hours of my life. I think the final nail was the Scarlet zergs where I felt like I had to chase round, tagging as many enemies as possible, opening hundreds or thousands of loot bags.
During PAX Prime 2015 ArenaNet CEO, Mr. O’Brien, announced that the (core) game turns free-to-play, effective immediately! The influx of new players has been nothing sort of legendary. All of them have one thing in common: a dire need for hands-on information about this massive new world they’re thrown in.
After finishing my goal of collecting all the dungeon tokens needed to craft each and every legendary weapon should I wish to (having the choice is always nice!), I was challenged on Twitter to work out how many tokens the non-legendary weapons require. These are the forgeable weapons that require dungeon tokens.
I keep getting lots of questions from new players lately: “How to do this? Why should I go with that?”. With the number of newcomers increasing more and more as we approach the release of the game’s first expansion pack, I decided to put together a list of helpful tips that may assist all these rookie adventurers in one way or the other.
