Legacy of the Mad King

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.

In Guild Wars October means the return of the Mad King Thorn. Two years ago the Mad King came back to Tyria after two and a half centuries. And last year, he brought his son, Bloody Prince Edrick.

I really hope they’ll introduce some new stuff. The mini dungeon from the first year was a lot of fun. And I really hope for a new version of the jumping puzzle. After trying 50 times I now know how to jump it. Only lag can throw me off my game.

Halloween also has the coolest skin. I really like the chainsaw greatsword, but I’ve set my eyes on The Crossing. The staff with dangling hand carrying a lantern. It reminds me of something the ferryman of the Styx would wield. Yes, I want it.

A Norn Necro as the Ferryman. Would you get in her boat?

I know it’s very expensive, but I’m lucky enough to have found the recipe for the Superior Sigil of the Night. It will save me some money. I hope to find a recipe of the Gift of Souls, because buying it is too expensive (143 gold!). My guess is that crafting the recipe is almost as expensive. I’ll keep farming for the candy corn node in my home instances for now.

Exotic staff The Crossing. A craftable Halloween skin.

What are your hopes and dreams nightmares for this Halloween? What was your favorite activity the past years?
