Hail loyal soldiers of Ascalon! It is Prince Rurik here with this week's tip:

Henchmen listen to orders. Call out a target to have all of the henchmen and heroes focus on that target if they're capable of doing so. This is important because you always want to take healers out first.

Excitement for ArenaNet’s upcoming Guild Wars 2 continues to build as more gameplay details are revealed. One such aspect of the game that’s been the hot topic of discussion among fans was the recent announcement of the Traits system. We had a few questions on how this system will function in the live game, and while rampant speculation is always fun sometimes it’s better to go directly to the source. That’s exactly what we did, and Guild Wars 2 Lead Designer Eric Flannum was awesome enough to take some time out of his busy schedule to provide us more details on traits as well as further insights into skill chains and the Warrior profession.
