GW2 Newsletter Banner

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: Sparkfly Swamp? (Eye of the North) collecting 2 Amphibian Tongues (available off the nearby frog men).

This week the big news was the Personal Stories - a telling of your own story instead of the main linear story most MMOGs have. That's the big GW2 news for the week. It seems now we're in a comfortable pattern of a big reveal every week or two - which is a good thing.

Of course, on the GW1 front we have some good news for current players. ArenaNet has taken to the offensive in order to ban many botting players.

ArenaNet wants your opinion on GW2 merchandising. So feel free to click that link and find your way over to their site and share your opinion.

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

Henchmen and Heroes are fun companions while ridding Ascalon of the Charr or escaping across icy mountains, but they do have their own free will. That's why it's important to call targets to let them know who you want to fight.

You can press CTRL then any attack skill to call a target. Henchmen and Heroes within range will all assist you to bring that target down which is mighty helpful for enemy healers. It even works well while in a group! You can use the default key "T" to target someone else's call or use calls to target an enemy for a spike.
