Arenanet details February update

Arenanet today released the details of the February update, titled Flame & Frost: The Gathering Storm. This update is due to be released on Feb 26.

February 26, 2013

The situation worsens for the citizens of Wayfarer Foothills and Diessa Plateau. Volunteers have eased the burden, but more refugees hobble down from the Shiverpeaks. The storm there gains momentum, but the forces of good are beginning to rally. They’re sending their heroes to defend the land and its peoples. Someone must hold back the gathering storm.

In Flame and Frost: The Gathering Storm, the second installment in this four-part series, the stakes are raised, and battles rage, in the foothills of the Shiverpeaks.

New Features

Brand New PvP Map – Spirit Watch

This peaceful green vale, nestled between cliffside shrines to the norn Spirits of the Wild is about to echo with the sounds of combat. In Spirit Watch, players will score bonus points by capturing the Orb of Ascension and running it to any of the three shrines on this newest PvP map.

Team Up for Guild Missions

Join your fellow guild members to take on an entirely new category of content! These missions, designed for coordinated group play, include everything from bounties to group puzzles to cross-country challenges. You’ll need to work together to complete the missions and earn new Guild Merits, which can unlock cool upgrades and rewards. It pays to be in a guild!

Two Team Rated Play in PvP

It’s time to prove your skill! In this new type of competitive PvP, two teams of equal average rating are pitted against each other in a quick, intense match. The ratings for every member of each team is then adjusted after the match.

Choose Your Own Daily Achievements

With our new selectable achievement system, you’ll have a chance to set new daily challenges for yourself and to choose what kind of content you want to be rewarded for playing.

    they didn’t say anything about putting the missing amulets (stat combos) in, which I eagerly waiting for ;-(

    • Even if they don’t mention it here, it is still possible that they will add them in the feb update. I guess we will know once we see the patch notes 🙂

        guess that too :))
        I’m so unpatient because in 9 days i have my 30 laurels ready to buy an amulet. so, if A-net would say that they put it in in feb update i would wait to buy one immediatly, if not I would buy one even with non-optimal stats, because I will have enough laurels ready when they put it in in, say, march or april 😉

        OT: love ur site Dulfy! 🙂
