Dry Top Map with POIs, Vistas and more added to the site

gw2 dry top map added

It has been quite a while since we updated GW2 Life. There are many excuses that we could make for this, but when Season 2 started and a whole new zone got added we figured there is no excuse for not returning to the game and checking out the new content. New zone is called Dry Top and you can reach it via a portal in western Brisban Wildlands. There are 19 new Points of interest, 4 skill points and 5 vistas to be discovered in this zone. We found locations of all of them and added the map of Dry Top along with guides on how to find each and every POI, vista and skill point (as you should be used to by now from our website). We also added locations and screenshot guides for various events found in the zone that help towards the Dry Top achievements. You can reach the new pages through the Interactive Maps menu drop down up on top of the website or by clicking here. There is a Jumping Puzzle in the new zone as well and we are working on the guide for it. You can expect to see it up on the website shortly.

GW2 The Origins of Madness update Starts on January 21


 
The Origins of Madness teaser is unveiled on the official Guild Wars 2 website. This is the first of four updates, which leads to the end of GW2′s Scarlet Briar story, but players who have missed previous living world content can jump right in. According to the latest interview with Colin Johanson, GW2 Game Director, and Meelad Sadat, the heroes of Tyria can expect the following updates:
 

  • A permanent Great Jungle Wurm world boss with a regular spawn timer, that lives beneath Bloodtide Coast. The boss will regrow its multiple heads, if certain conditions for their destruction aren’t met. Participating in the fight against him grants you the progress through the story, and new rewards are waiting for those who manage to defeat it.
  • The second part of the story takes place in Lornar’s Pass, where players encounter Twisted Marionette boss.

 

Johanson also confirmed that players will meet up with popular recurring characters Rox, Braham, Marjory, and Kasmeer in this update. A new character will also be joining them, and although his (or her) identity is still under wraps, we were told that the character is an Asura, has never appeared before in the story, and is a “very different sort of person.”
