  • You've been waiting for it. You've had anticipation like nobody's business. So much anticipation that you can't leave your home now for fear of missing any new news. It happens, it's ok. Just open the door, get in your car and go.

    April 26, 2006 (BELLEVUE, WA) – ArenaNet®, developer of the award-winning online roleplaying game Guild Wars®, and NCsoft® Corporation, the world’s leading developer and publisher of online computer games, announce today that one of the year’s most-anticipated PC titles, Guild Wars Factions™, has officially shipped. For fans of the game that revolutionized online roleplaying, the wait is nearly over as Guild Wars Factions goes out today to retail stores worldwide.

    Guild Wars Factions is the stand-alone follow-up to Guild Wars, the game that set new standards in online gaming with fresh design, innovative technology and no-subscription-fee pricing. With an expected retail price of $49.99, Guild Wars Factions will be available worldwide and servers supporting the new release will “go live” at 12:01 AM PDT /7:01 GMT on April 28, 2006.

    Those who pre-ordered the game will be able to participate in the exclusive Guild Wars Factions Head Start Event beginning at 12:01 AM PDT/7:01 AM GMT on April 27, 2006. These lucky gamers will have access to the game for a total of 48 hours, including a full 24 hours before the game’s global release. During the first 24 hours of the Head Start Event, ArenaNet has planned an exclusive in-game event titled "Day of the Tengu," in which players will join one-day-only "Day of the Tengu" quests, and earn exclusive in-game rewards.

    “New features in Guild Wars Factions such as guild scrimmages, alliance battles, ranked character titles, and some surprises still to come all resulted from our drive to create a truly unique gaming experience for existing and new fans of the Guild Wars universe,” says Mike O’Brien, co-founder of ArenaNet. “With a full year of development and a passionate design team, we think what we’ve created delivers on that and much, much more. Either played as a stand-alone game, or linked with your original Guild Wars account, Guild Wars Factions is a game we are thoroughly proud of—and still carries no subscription fee.”

    Guild Wars Factions takes place on the Asian-inspired continent of Cantha, where players create a character from eight distinct professions—including the newly created Assassin and Ritualist—and join an epic quest that pits two warring factions, the Luxons and the Kurzicks, against an ancient evil, and against each other. As players become embroiled in this brutal war of conquest, new missions will provide both roleplaying fans and competitive PvP players the opportunity to help determine the fate of Cantha.

    Guild Wars Factions is rated T for Teen. For more information, please visit www.guildwars.com.

    Have tons of fun getting into this game.

  • Jungle Henge

    Smack in the middle of the Maguuma Jungle, you'll find this surprisingly well appointed town. The Henge of Denravi is one of the prettier locations in the game, especially around the fringes of town.

    Henge of Denravi (HoD) is a quiet, mysterious place. It isn't so much carved out of the jungle as a part of it.

    Read more about in our new Guide to the Henge of Denravi at Guild Wars - TenTonHammer.

  • Busting out the Berserking!

    Like to go crazy, get in the middle of crap and just whale on stuff? Get professional help. If you Want to be a real beserker, Savanja has put together a wonderful guide including tactics and updated spell lists.

    The Berserker, the master of chaos, and the bringer of hurt. These hardened warriors thrive on madness and destruction. With heavy plate armor and menacing weapons, those unfortunate enough to be caught in their wake will cower before their obvious power.

    With the choice of being good or evil, the berserker makes a great choice of class no matter where you wish to unleash your fury.

  • Stuck in Stratholme?

    World of Warcraft's level 60 "Stratholme" instance was recently converted to a 5-person group instance from a 10-person raid. If you found that you could really use another five guildmates on your last Stratholme run, check out the newest guide from WoW - TenTonHammer:

    Stratholme is a very difficult instance to 5 man, so one of the primary concerns with group composition for a 5 man run is level. At least 4 of the members should be level 60 and preferable the whole group should be level 60. If you must take a lower level player with you on a 5 man run casters are not a good choice as the higher level MOBs and bosses will have an increased chance to resist them. Lower level healers are an option if they stay back and know how to manage aggro. If they move forward or cast large heals they will pick up aggro fast and need to be saved.

    Check out TenTonHammer's Updated Guide to Stratholme at WoW - TenTonHammer for information on the instance, tactics, loot and even a full map.

  • 6 Million is apparently enough...

    Subscribers set to auto-renew on April 20th-21st weren't charged, according to Ignig.com and the Blizzard support forums, and subsequently couldn't log in to the game. With telephone lines clogged, those forums are starting to look like a PvP server. Except with more gankage. And no zone / level restrictions. Nevermind.

    It seems the company’s billing system has gone on the blink, causing some accounts to be put in the inactive file since their credit cards can’t be charged. What’s worse, the customer service lines are so clogged, some players are saying, they can’t get through to solve the problem.

    All of this is adding to the frustration of some players, who are now threatening to cancel their accounts. A post has appeared on WoW’s forums from company officials explaining the problem and how to fix it.

    Read Ignig.com's take on Blizzard's billing problems.

  • Pirates...Ninjas
    Pirates!...Ninjas!
    PIRATES!...NINJAS!

    We see the drama and hear the story behind it, but why are the superior pirates compared to ninjas on a regular basis? Slide takes a fun look at these two groups (in which the pirates are cooler) and weighs the pros and cons of each side (which of course the pirate side is better).

    The interesting thing about the Pirate vs. Ninja debate is how widespread it is. It matters not where you go, be it down the street for a coffee or surfing across the web searching for 10 ways to make toast, there will be opinions about who would win in a fight or who is better overall. The unfortunate truth is that the Pirates vs. Ninjas discussion induces eye rolling almost as much as Chuck Norris facts for the simple fact that it's talked about in such tremendous quantities

    Check out this fun article about how much better pirates are at EQ2 - TenTonHammer. No real interest in EverQuest 2, software piracy, or ninja looting required!

  • Boxing Day!

    Remember the box your original copy of Guild Wars: Prophecies came in? The one with the glaring Warrior on one side, and the glaring Necromancer babe on the other. Yeah, that one. Now imagine it bigger—say, around 12x16 inches. We've got FIVE of these to give away.

    So what's the catch? There isn't one, really. All you have to do is tell us who your favorite NPC is and why. We'll select five of the most convincing fans and get a giant Guild Wars box sent to their home. (Warning: Oversize box does not contain oversize game discs. Boxes are not appropriate as a storage device for kittens. Boxes may have sharp corners and are unsuitable for cuddling, no matter how cute you find that necromancer.)

    The contest will run until May 8th, 2006. Post your entry at the Guild Wars - TenTonHammer forums or send an e-mail to Samyel (at) tentonhammer.com.

  • Yaktastic

    This is the second in a series of guides to the important outposts in Guild Wars. Prepare for your visit to Yak's Bend by reading our description of the town and what you'll find there.

    Yak's Bend is named for the creatures who are as ubiquitous to the area as gamers in an internet café. (Feel free to pet the yaks. They're used to it.) Snowy, but mild, this is a place to prepare yourself for the trip through the Shiverpeak Mountains.
