ArenaNet has released the second expansion for Guild Wars 2, Path of Fire. New mounts, new specializations, and a new land, await Tyria's adventurers as they scour the Crystal Desert in search of the rogue god, Balthazar.
If you're still wondering about buying, check out our initial reveal of the expansion back in early August or some of the more details exposés of the mounts or new elite specializations.
On a broader note, the release of Path of Fire has come just two months following the last of the previous season's Living Story updates, which have been proceeding apace since ArenaNet President and GW2 Game Director Mike O'Brien vowed to improve the pace of content releases in early 2016.
While many, myself included, were skeptical of what seemed like yet another promise to "lay the foundation" for future development that never seemed to arrive, I have to admit, the last 18 months have been fairly smooth, with releases happening apace -- and now, an expansion. The final step in ArenaNet's redemption will be to see if that pace can continue following Path of Fire's launch, instead of the long content gap for anything besides raiding that followed Heart of Thorns' launch.
