GW2 June 14 Game Update Patch Notes

GW2 Patch Notes for the June 14 Game Update.

RAIDS

  • The victory at Salvation Pass revealed the terrible truth of the White Mantle’s return. Take the fight to the enemy and strike at their heart, deep in the Maguuma Jungle, where unknown dangers and powerful enemies lurk. All is not as it seems in the Stronghold of the Faithful, where the White Mantle’s innermost secrets and dark magic fester. It’s a race against time to stop the plans in motion in this high-stakes, white-knuckle conclusion to the Forsaken Thicket raid.

I am glad about it. I love it when things like this crash because of people hoarding it panic. I get to grab things cheap like a mini south sun kasmeer for a mere 60g. (couldn’t resist… mini and pun).

I can dream about mystic coin crash now.

Nice change to the pvp maguuma reward track. 2 weeks late. But a nice change -.-

Really glad I purchased a gift of battle for the hell of it. Looks like further ones will be a real pain to obtain.

Wait, a new phoenix glider? Will I finally have a Light of Dwayna style glider? Is the long wait over!?

Just bought it. It gives you fiery wings and leaves a trail of fire and embers in it’s wake. Imo one of the best looking gliders they released. I advice getting it now before gemprices skyrocket further.

Yeah been keeping 500g at my wallet at all times cuz lately Anet has been pumping the gemstore like crazy lol.

1 thing is sure, after this update i never gonna make a new Legdendary, forching us 2 farm WWW 2 get the gift of battle from a reward track. epic fail…

Think of it more as a sweetener to keep losing players on a map where they’re heavily outnumbered. Otherwise, you just get a mass exodus as soon as one side starts losing. Once you control everything on the map and there’s nothing to cap/nobody to fight, what’s the point of staying on the map? You won’t be able to get any progress either.

Yes because once you have captured all the towers ,castles etc
There is plenty to do in wvw right???
Think of it this way it takes two ppl to make a pvp match, if one of them leaves then pvp can’t happen

Phoenix glider is surprisingly lazy. There’s no opening animation effects, no notable sound effect, it’s just sort of “there”, and it’s small and dinky.

“Added the Gift of Battle Item reward track and removed the vendors that previously sold gifts of battle.” So they created an artificial way to bring people to WvW. In my opinion the Vendor should be put in Stonemist Castle in the middle of Eternal Battlegrounds. Well I’m not a WvW player or fan and I have all cultural armors and weapons skins that I could buy with badges, my guild is fully upgraded, I already have a commander tag, permanent gathering tools, permanent salvage kits and I wont buy that crap food so the only useful item to buy is the 20 slot bag with my 14k badges of honor?

if you actualy did wvw, you would this is the kind of crap that made them change the world completion because you can’t balance servers, there’s always that server who’s drastically stronger than the 2 other and won’t ever lose SM.
