Guild Wars 2: Echoes of the Past kicks off today. It’s the latest in the MMORPG’s “living story” releases.
Echoes of the Past finds world leaders upset over an attack on the Pale Tree by the Elder Dragon Mordremoth.
Here’s a list of features included in the update:
Staging for War: Players will report to Camp Resolve in enemy territory which has Mysterious ruins in the area. These will be player’s primary battleground locations against Mordremoth’s armies. Players will fight to hold strategic locations and call in Pact allies for aid.
Silverwastes Treasures: While fighting in the Silverwastes, players will collected new Bandit Crests which can be traded to Pact Vendors for “Sinister gear recipes,” crafting materials, and more such as pieces of the new Carapace armor set.
Bioluminescence: A new set of armor for each weight class will be available exclusively through the Living World and Silverwastes content. Beginning with shoulder armor in episode five, players will be able to collect new pieces of the Carapace armor from every episode. The set can be completed over time, and players will be able to find upgrades to the armor in order to turn it into a Luminescent set.
