As we continue our push through Heart of Thorns, with now a second map completed, I’m impressed by just how helpful and communicative the people we meet are in this MMORPG.
There are challenges that a pair of Charr cannot easily accomplish, like the champion hero point boss pictured above. But a quick call in map chat will often bring players rushing to join in for any activity that’s even vaguely rewarding.
Events in the Auric Basin are popular it seems, despite the content being an expansion out of date. If anything it is too easy to be regularly distracted from whatever we actually logged in to do, as we join another rush of players escorting some Pact NPC or chasing to reach a boss fight before it vanishes from the map. Unlike many other MMORPGs, this old content remains just as challenging as it always was – gear scaling or over-gearing isn’t a big thing in Guild Wars 2. It’s perfectly possible for an event to fail even now in 2018!
Still, we regularly get runs on the map meta events (both when we were doing Verdant Brink and now in Auric Basin) and can usually get help doing anything else that a Necromancer+Guardian pair can’t handle on their own.
Let the adventures continue!
