GW2: A Necro's BWE2 Post-Mortem

Following the second beta weekend event for Guild Wars 2, we take a look at necromancer builds and trends in structured PvP.

Another Guild Wars 2 beta weekend has successfully wrapped up, not unlike an early Christmas present from ArenaNet. There were a lot of fixes, changes, and improvements across the board, and the game just keeps getting better through each iterative pass.
