Welcome to "Live 2 Win", Ten Ton Hammer's weekly newsletter that discusses all things Guild Wars and Guild Wars 2.


Nicholas the Traveler is located at: Dreadnought's Drift (Prophecies) collecting 2 Azure Remains.


Things have been very quiet this week. We do know that ArenaNet will be making its rounds around a few conventions throughout this summer. The biggest one will be gamescon where they will be demoing Guild Wars 2.

That's about it this week for news. A small update hit the game servers, but nothing important.

There is a charity coming up where you can have a chance to snag some of the original GW2 concept art. The auction is called "Beautiful Grim" and you can read more about it here.

What will your first Race and Profession be?

The quesiton has been asked, what will your first profession be?

Order in the COURT! (Which Order is for you?)

I really like the Order of Whispers because they wear some awesome clothes.

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

Did you know that certain quests can either increase or decrease the amount of spawns in a zone? The way you enter into a zone can also determine how many foes spawn. Decreasing the amount of spawns can help with vanquishing or running while increasing can help with reputation grind.

So be careful which quests you complete and which you skip. Only primary quests need to be completed in order to finish the story (in addition to your two attribute point quests which should be completed anyway).
