Introducing the New Daily Achievement System

Arenanet has just announced that the upcoming Wintersday patch (16 December 2014) will include an overhaul of the daily achievement system.  The system is being split into dailies (each with their own rewards), and log-in rewards, which can be acquired simply by logging onto the account and playing.  The rewards now also give context rewards, such as WvW dailies giving more badges, or fractal dailies giving a pristine relic.

The achievement points are also gone from each achievement.  SImply completing three dailies awards you with a daily meta that is worth 10 achievement points.  The daily points are still capped at 10,000.

You can read the full announcement here.

To help accomplish this, we've broken the daily achievements into three distinct categories based on their game types: PvE, WvW, and PvP. Additionally, we've created a separation of easier achievements like "Killing 3 Players in WvW," and more challenging ones like "Win 1 Match in PvP as a Mesmer" or "Defeat the Shatterer." Easier achievements are quicker to accomplish, but harder achievements will give players greater rewards.

Season 2 Returns Jan 13th, Winter's Day, WvW Event, and more.

Arenanet has announced that the Living Story will continue with episode 8 on the 13th of January 2015.  Until then, Wintersday will be active starting the 16th of December 2014, with the event being hosted in Divinity's Reach.  There is also a WvW rule-flip tournament incoming, and a PvP tournament incoming, each providing their own call to the mists buff.  You can read the entire blog post announcement here.

A few months ago, we announced that Guild Wars 2's Living World experience was launching on a path that would result in our story-and the whole world of Tyria-reaching a point of no return. We've since ventured into the heart of Glint's lair, discovered secrets in the depths of the Durmand Priory, witnessed the fall of the leader of the Zephyrites, recovered the last known dragon egg only to have it stolen out from under us by a longtime friend, and searched through the first memories of the sylvari race in our hunt to find her.

Our story now finds the Pact's fleet of airships poised to launch their assault into the jungle, and our band of heroes standing before a sealed cave marked with ancient runes. On January 13, Living World Season 2 will return to take you beyond that seal, and you'll discover moments that will forever change the course of Tyria.

Season 2 Returns on 13?January

Keeping with tradition, the preview for the seventh Living Story episode has gone live. The patch falls on the same day as the previously previewed changes to structured PvP as well, giving both sides of the player base a fair amount of content to look forward to.

It depends on your connection, unless you have fibre-optic broadband then NA servers lag really badly if there is any event stuff happening... Halloween, Christmas etc. If you are worried about lag, then I would advise joining RiOT on Seafarer's Rest Server because they do a lot of PvE stuff as well as the WvW. Their officers are divided into PvE and PvP... plus there are Swedish people in the guild and LOTS of Swedish people on the server. The server is mostly British, Swedish, Italian and Russian

Would NA server lagg for somone from sweden? :o)
Nymph of Meliai Fri 25 Jan, 20:58
If you like PvX pm Nymeria Meliae for an invite to RiOT (WvW/Dungeons etc.) = EU servers If you are strict PvE then pm Zara Zante for an invite to LOST = NA servers
