On September 22nd, the GW2 branch of NOR set out to the Crystal Desert to take on a mad god! Yes, the expansion has arrived with all kinds of new content, some quality of life upgrades, and of course, cool mounts! You can find links to the full patch notes on our NOR forums. Many of us have been re-learning our combat rotations with the release of the new elite specializations, which is providing a fresh experience for all classes. There are new races, bounty events, and achievements galore with the advent of Path of Fire. We look forward to running bounty events and discovering what other surprises await with the new meta.
With the arrival of Path of Fire is a new Guild Hall called Windswept Haven. We held an open vote on whether or not to keep our current location at Gilded Hollow or to acquire the new one, and who can resist the new and shiny?! Windswept Haven won by a landslide and after a hard fought fight, NOR successfully captured it with some great teamwork. Much ale and Choya kabobs were consumed in celebration!
Still not enough for you to do? Well, you can put your mettle to the test in our Raid Formation group. We will begin hosting events on Thursday nights that are aimed at getting prospective raiders together to start fostering teamwork and synergy. Everyone is welcome to join and the groups will be organized according to the goals of the event. We will have more announcements in the coming weeks about schedule changes given the shift in interest that new expansions often bring.
We have had a busy month with promotions and new members. We’re excited to recognize ErnieAxeman as our newest Knight, DKShang as Squire Honor, and Mith, Exphio, VixxLetum, and LatinumLetum as squires. We also warmly welcome AmaraLaluz, FatCowOfChaos, Magomus, Shawn27, Alardon, and BorealisSol as our newest recruits. It’s exciting to have you with us and we hope you enjoy your time here. Happy gaming all, and enjoy the new content!
