With less than two months remaining until Guild Wars 2: Heart of Thorns launches, I'm in a bit of a state of panic. I had intended to have World Completion done on both my Necromancer and Engineer (I've already done it on 3 other professions) but it looks like I'm going to struggle for time, especially when I've also got to get my last 10 Fractal Levels and find enough gold to not only kit out my revenant in a new "look" (I've expensive taste) but to also finish off my ascended armor set for my necromancer. Although it isn't a huge list, I'm not sure I'd be happy going into Heart of Thorns without having done it all. Achievements I can do any time. 

If there's one thing I'm not looking forward to after completing my "check list" it's having to do World Completion all over again on my revenant. Wouldn't it be nice if we could use a Gift of Exploration to grant an alt World Completion?

The Competition

Anyway, the main point of today's Persistent Worlds column is to give away a big bag of gold. 4000 Gems worth of gold to be exact, which by today's conversation rates should net you 706 gold (give or take). 

All I want to know is the following: "How are you preparing for Heart of Thorns?"

The Rules

Let me know in the comments below, with no word limit or entry style (pictures are fine, poems or stories!) and I'll pick the best by Friday 11th September. You're free to make as many entries as you wish. 

Good luck!
