The Halloween patch, Blood & Madness landed in Tyria last Tuesday. My guildies love loot so we jumped into the labyrinth and walked around killing everything in sight. It changed since last year. New bosses, doors and enemies can be found there. It’s still rich with candy corn nodes, so anyone who’s collecting them for the rewards, can farm more here.
Farming mobs isn’t the only thing with the coming of the Mad King Thorn. There is still the story of the Bloody Prince you can (re)play or any of the other events, PvP or the worst jumping puzzle in the game, the Clock Tower. And let’s not forget rewards!
I went back to work after our little trip. That meant less play time, except during the evenings and weekends. I usually play my two standard games during those times: League of Legends and Guild Wars 2. Playing ARAM with friends really is a highlight of my week. We chill, have fun and if we lose, we lose. No hating, just keep playing and hope for a better match up for the next game.
It’s October! And you know what that means!
Actually, we don’t celebrate Halloween in the Netherlands. We celebrate St. Martin’s Day on November 11th. Kids will walk around with lanterns and sing at the door. They get candy as a reward. Most childless people pretend they’re not home.
I’ve got plenty of time to log into Guild Wars 2 on the 31st, because the only party invite I’ll get is in-game.
ArenaNet released the second feature pack on September the 9th. I didn’t really expect another feature pack would be released so soon, but it’s very welcome. I love new, free content in games that I love to play. Who doesn’t like free stuff that keeps you playing? ArenaNet has given us some new amazing things, but nothing can beat the wardrobe feature, right?
This is a special edition of the PlayList. It’s been a while since I’ve last written one, but I fully intent to bring it back as a weekly post. The past couple of weeks I’ve done a few boss fights. Not just any boss fights, but the Final Boss. The last one you’ve to beat before the credits start rolling.
But non of the boss fights felt epic to me. Find out why. [WARNING: SPOILERS]
With the new wardrobe in place, I bought armor from the gemstore to celebrate. Here is the new Strider Armor on my ranger. Doesn’t she look
(Don’t mind my Alpine Wolf licking himself. He doesn’t care for cameras.)
