Guild Wars 2 is thinking big with its latest update, adding whole new features to Arenanet's MMORPG. Among the items on the agenda for the latest update are Megaservers and a new Wardrobe feature, but it also eliminates PvP-exclusive gear.

While the Wardrobe system makes it easier to customize the look of your favorite characters, it also means that PvP-exclusive weapons and armor will go away. The old system will be replaced by 'PvP Reward Tracks,' which lets players play for specific rewards. Examples of these rewards include dungeon items or Legendary weapon pieces.

The latest Guild Wars 2 update will also overhaul character traits, which will now be unlocked according to character level. Different traits can also be unlocked through "feats of bravery and daring," allowing for a new form of customization.

As previously mentioned, Megaservers will make it easier for friends and guild members to find each other on a single server. With this new system taking effect, boss schedules have been adjusted.

The full changelist can be found here.

But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?

      Best time to get back into the game, if you haven't tried it yet.

        I don't know if it's still going, but the main site was selling the game for half off. $25 USD

      I see lots of people angry about them turning town clothes into tonics.

      Just got an email saying a password reset was requested for my account, and I did not request it. My account was hacked once before. Anyone who hasn't played this in a while, might want to make sure your shit is still secured. I think their launcher is very insecure.
