Guild Wars Players News #2: Necros are Gross

Ethelros joins us as a new co-host this week! We also talk about the upcoming changes to the Daily Achievements system, Log-in rewards, and how gross Ethelros and I think Necromancer pets are.

The Sylvari

  • The Firstborn emerged from golden fruit growing on the Pale Tree in 1302 (23 years before the start of the game) – sylvari have been coming from the Pale Tree ever since.
  • While growing in the Pale Tree’s fruit, sylvari experience “the Dream”. It instills the morals of Ventari’s Tablet, exposes the growing sylvari to the shared memories and experiences of the Pale Tree and all the other sylvari, and also can give some hint or foreshadowing of their future life.
  • Currently not clear whether sylvari die of old age – at this point sylvari have only ever died of violence, disease or poisoning and the sylvari have shown no signs of aging.

  1. Don’t like asura? Don’t like necros? Asura necro would be an “abomination?”
    <– Has two asura, one of whom is a necromancer and quite possibly favorite character.

    We cannot be friends.

    • Aww sorry Tapkoh! 🙁 I just can’t stand those herds of pets running around!

      • …minion master is also my favorite build and not just because having 10 cute wittle zambie pets out during cutscenes results in hilarity.

    Found some of the info on Daily to be inaccurate, also info seems to not go beyond what is currently known publicly. Feedback loop initiated. First time listener. Just commenting on the commentators. Nothing to see here folks. Comment on!

    • To be clear, we didn’t claim to know any information not available to people willing to seek it out on their own. The goal of the podcast is to gather news and information into one spot and discuss it. I’d also be interested to know what the inaccurate information about Dailies was?

  3. Found this podcast via a post on Reddit, good advertising that. I’ve been listening along (in reverse) since the most recent.

    Amusing thing, my only asura character is my necromancer — and as it turns out another member of my krewe is also an asura necromancer (and the third and forth are charr and sylvari necromancers. Theme unexpectedly detected.)

    Not my main, however, but still pint-sized “I am death incarnate!”
