WvW Castle Improvements

  • These are unique to Eternal Battlegrounds – Stonemist

  • Hyldenlord

    Does this mean that we need commander to go for a raid. That’s not fun.

    • Saelyth

      Nah i don’t think it’ll be needed, but it would make it easier, same as teamspeak it’s a tool that helps.

      • TeraFlop

        It might be required to be in a squad to go into the raid instance together.

  • Edrelia

    Profession icons will be shown along with their HP bars.

    This is what i wanted right from the start of WvW

  • Sagiso 鷺草

    Er….what’s that profession icon of “Knightmare”? Did I miss something?
