GW2: Linsey Murdock on Agony, Infusion and New Ascended Gear

Posted Tue, Nov 13, 2012 by Martuk

As part of the upcoming update for Guild Wars 2, ArenaNet will be including new progression options with Ascended Gear. This week Game Designer Linsey Murdock has penned a new blog that reveals more about the gear and a new agonizing effect.

The new Ascended Gear will drop in either Legendary or Exotic form and will include new Infusion slots, which can be slotted with new Offensive, Defensive, and Omni Infusions made in the Mystic Forge. These new Infusions can provide protection from a new condition known as Agony, which will first be seen in the new Fractals of the Mists dungeon in the November update. Agony is a condition that ticks off a player’s health by a given percentage, and the only way to mitigate that damage is with Infusions.

This is just the first of new planned changes to Guild Wars 2 progression. Read Murdock’s full blog to learn more.
