Tyria Times – Prep Time

You as regular reader have probably noticed that there wasn’t a fanfic last friday. I’m sorry. I was on a quest to find the sun. (I found it) But don’t worry, this friday another part in young Miira’s adventures will be up. I’m still planning a special Halloween story for the week after that.

I didn’t have much time to prepare for the Heart of Thorns launch friday, nor the return of the Mad King. And since the launch coincides with the return of Halloween, I’ll know what I’ll be doing friday evening. Yes, running the labyrinth. And I’ll probably be doing that for the next two weeks.

I have a level 45 thief that needs to get to level 80. He’ll get there easily with all the boosts from celebration boosters, XP boosters, food and utility buffs. Last year I leveled Miira from 54 to 80 in just a few evenings and I managed to hoard enough Halloween items for The Crossing.

ArenaNet is bringing the old dungeon back with some improvements and there will be new skins and items to farm. Yes, I’m excited. From all the seasonal events Guild Wars 2 has, I like this one best. I’m looking forward to the new achievements and even to completing the jumping puzzle again. The first year it took me about six whole days before I could make it. Last year it took me about three days. I hope I’ll get it even quicker this year.

I have completed one thing of my to do list before Heart of Thorns. I’ve completed The Crossing! I was too lazy to farm for lodestones, so I bought them. I’m poor again, but it’s worth it. My norn necro will proudly wield it until I finish Nevermore.

For this Halloween I hope I’ll find some more recipes for the other craftable Halloween skins. I like them very much and want all of them. Yes, I’ll work my butt off again to craft them. Yes, even if that means it’ll take longer to complete a legendary.

Tyria Times – To-do list update

You know what the best thing about to-do lists is? Scratching stuff off it. Well, I’m not there yet, but I’m making progress. Savyrius Belain, my human male elementalist, is level 61. I could easily level him up with all the Tomes of Knowledge I have, but I want to save them for my other characters. Bringing him to level 80 isn’t hard. Even if I just do the personal story, or even just world completion, will get me there easily.

I leveled my other characters to level 20 with the experience scrolls I received in the achievement chests. I can’t use them for anything else besides leveling low chars to level 20, so why not. I haven’t played much with any of them, as I didn’t get in much play time. I focused on easy stuff, like world completion

I’m working on world completion with Anora, my sylvari female mesmer. She’s at 77% now. Since world completion has changed, I don’t have to do the WvW Borderlands anymore. I only needed two more of them, but I’m still glad that I can skip those. I just finished Timberline Falls and so all the Shiverpeak regions. I’ve finished all the cities, Kryta and most of the Maguuma zones that count. Next up is Mount Maelstorm and all the Ascalon regions. I’ll save Orr for last. Then I’ll check all the previous zones for things I have missed, like the newly added hearts, PoIs and waypoints added in the last few patches.

Map completion gave a few new skins, which is nice. I’m a bit closer to the 1000 skins, but I’m not there yet. They also added the previews for the dyes that you don’t have. Now I want all of those as well. That’s going to cost me a lot of money. I hope to have at least all the common and uncommon dyes before Heart of Thorns hits.

My friends gave me some more lodestones for The Crossing and I finished 16 Superior Sigil of the Night. My Knowledge Crystal count is up to 120 from playing PvP with the Crucible of Eternity track active. Those daily PvP activities boost the reward track and speeds up the process.

I’m only 20 Achievement Points away until the 9000 chest, so I’ll aim for that next. It’s only two dailies away :)

Tyria Times – To-Do List Before Heart of Thorns

Even before the announcement of Heart of Thorns, I’d written a list of all the things that I want to do in Guild Wars 2 this year. The coming of the expansion has only made me more excited and pushed the deadline forward. I don’t want to complete all of this, this year, but before the expansion hits. Since I’ve no idea when it’ll come, I’ll have to hurry up :)
