I’m off on a family holiday for a long weekend, and as usual the timing is perfect to not be doing all of the great stuff that’s happening in MMORPG land!
Firstly Guild Wars 2 has just released, after some delay, the next update to the Living Story. Bhagpuss has his spoiler-free first impressions in a recent post. I’ll not be seeing this till next week some time. Husband and I had taken a break from Guild Wars 2 after playing it for months, we just lost momentum once we’d done the story of the last update.
Everquest 2 has its newest festival starting today, literally the day I go away (<sigh>) – The Scorched Sky. Thankfully it lasts until July 9th according to the article on EQTraders, so I’ll be able to dive into this when we return; it’ll be my solo-gaming priority in fact.
Secret World Legends has the anniversary event ongoing, we’ve only managed to login once since that started on June 20th, it lasts until July 17th – so again there’ll hopefully be some opportunities to fight some talos for extra loot.
It’s a busy start to the summer!
Neverwinter also released its Ravenloft expansion on Tuesday. 🙂 It made me think of you because I know Chult’s gear requirements put you off – you should be pleased to hear that the intro quest to Barovia rewards a full set of excellent catch-up gear. In the meantime, enjoy your long weekend!
Oh thanks for the tip, I had read your post on it but forgot to comment as, at the time, I couldn’t get comments on my phone browser to swap from my real name Google account. We’ll have to have a look at this though!
