Guild Wars 2 is making news today — not all of it the kind ArenaNet would like.
But in the “good” news category is the game’s newest content drop, the fifth episode of season three of the Living World story, titled Flashpoint. It’s the second-to-last episode of the current season, and tasks Tyria’s heroes with investigating the way-too-friendly Mursaat, Lazarus the Dire.
The long-awaited addition of legendary armor is also included in this update, along with a new legendary weapon: the torch called Flames of War. Why doesn’t anyone ever make Flames of Peace? Also, the price of the Heart of Thorns expansion — essentially the full game — has been permanently discounted to $29.99 for the base game, with higher price tags for the fancier versions.
