Guild Wars Expansion Goes Live
The Game Update Notes are up and the previews will start turning into reviews as Guild Wars gets its first major expansion. Like the Warrior/Mesmer once said to the Monk/Elementalist:
Sorrow's Furnace consists of two new, large and challenging explorable regions located deep in the Shiverpeak Mountains between Spearhead Peak and Snake Dance. These areas contain the following:
* Seventeen new quests, most of them fully repeatable and offering high XP rewards
* Four new cinematics
* A variety of new monsters, including new Stone Summit Dwarves that are the strongest in the Shiverpeak Mountains, and entirely new types of creatures that are being introduced to the game for the first time
* Boss monsters named after the contest winning entries
Boss monsters in the new Sorrow's Furnace regions drop newly-introduced green "unique" weapons that are named after the boss.
