Exploring War Like Worlds.


Something is stirring in the Sea of Sorrows – and we want to make sure that you are not missing out, so here is a schedule (without spoilers) for you, so you can plan ahead:

  • On Friday November 16th at noon PST (20:00 GMT) the weekend will kick off with an Event in Lion’s Arch that you don’t want to miss. This will trigger events in other parts of Tyria as well.
    *On Saturday November 17th at noon PST (20:00 GMT), another phase will kick in.
    Each phase is triggered by a special event, but you will be able to enjoy additional content afterwards even if you cannot make the kick-off time. There is one exception:

The event will culminate in a big Finale on Sunday November 18, make sure you will not miss it. This will be a onetime only event chain that will run multiple hours, and it will kick off at noon PST (20:00 GMT). Again, this will only run once, so make sure you will be there! There will be plenty of content available to enjoy that will remain permanently in the world as a result of the outcome of this event on Sunday.

We will give you more details once we get closer to the event, but wanted to give you an early heads up so you can plan accordingly.



Hello again. I mostly stopped playing. I got married and had a baby.

I am playing Guild Wars 2 now a few times a week and would like to share/store some notes on the game.

Please look out for me.

Checkout this lodestone article with map’s and instructions.

From Limsa Lominsa to Ul’dah
First, make your way to the ferry docks located on the lower decks of Central Limsa Lominsa (just beyond Hawkers’ Alley). Speak with the fellow at the counter to receive your free boarding ticket, and then proceed through the gate. You will automatically board the ferry before it leaves port.
In approximately ten minutes (earth time), the ferry will arrive in Vesper Bay.

I think you can not get through the dock until your at a certain point in the city quest. Perhaps to stop yourself getting killed. I think also a quest requires you to go to vesper bay.

You can travel without having done a quest. You just need to run up to the gates until you get an icon like for a gathering node or a door. You will also auto get on the boat if your about to board the boat when the boat starts to leave.

Step 2: East on the Sunway.
Once you have arrived in western Thanalan and disembarked the ferry, exit the dock area and follow the Royal Allagan Sunway east to central Thanalan. If you are feeling adventurous, take a slight detour and attune with the aetheryte located in Camp Horizon (13. 29). You won’t regret it!

Step 3: South on the Starway.
Midway through central Thanalan, you will come to a road leading south. This is the Royal Allagan Starway, and it can be taken all the way to the gates of Ul’dah. On the way, do not forget to attune with the aetheryte at Camp Black Brush (27. 25).

Ok is it just me or is this a little weird.

One of the first things that needed repair was the characters underwear. Now you can not remove it and it has to be removed to be repaired. So you really need two sets.

However its not easy to make new underwear or cheap. So I had to get a guildy to help me out, they had an extra set, lent it to me, I gave them the mats, they repaired mine and I swapped back to mine and handed the extra set back to the guildy. Follow all that? Think its odd and slightly ick??

Well umm ..yah.

Also it appears it does not get better. In fact the game lets you buy used underwear cheaply in one of the cities.

Soooo hmm.
I get realism, I really do, but this is rather, WTF !?!

Anyway just a crazy story from the game that I felt the need to share.

A. The colored, glowing graphics provides players with a large hint toward a successful synthesis.

When the glow is white, the synthesis is at its most stable, and the chances of success are high.
When the glow takes on a color, however, the chances of success are low.

The developers have recommended

Players seeking simple completion of their synthesis rather than high-quality results should attempt to use the Wait command when the indicator is colored to restore the stability of the synthesis before finishing it.

You can take a screenshot by pressing Scroll Lock + Print Screen.
It also takes away the hud.

There are also some FFXIV pictures on TTHammer you can look at.
