Guild Wars: Temptation

Update fairy is go! You can read Brinny's patch notes here.

At least, I'd like to think they were written by the old friend of the blog formerly and fondly known as Brinstar because I'm sure she catches no end of grief doing a thankless job for a spiteful community and I'd like to see that she's doing a good job in spite of it.

Anywho....looking at the notes, well, whoa.

Sweeping changes to underpowered and obsolete elites, especially the criz-zappy ones from Prophesies? A monkey wrench in the metagame that's sure to result in tons of interesting buildcrafting in the coming days and weeks? The deathknell sounded for Ursan Blessing? A reduction to the necessity of title grinding? And the utter and absolute removal of Victory or Death entirely?

It's like they want to get me interested in coming back or something...

I think I'm still going to hold out until Halloween time and the chance for more sweet, sweet Costume Brawl action. But that's the kind of update that takes guts to make and that I'd have loved to see more of.

But, as someone said, at this point, it's all alpha testing for GW2 anyways, so there's not a lot of reason to bother.

Some of those changes, though... Like Lyssa's Aura? Or Quivering Blade? And I never thought I'd see a day when Unyielding Aura even looked like playable. Of course, that's only the PvE version and we come right back to why I'm not playing again...
