Still playing Guild Wars 2, after starting with Path of Fire expansion which led me to new zones i didn’t finish any story content (there is no quests in this game) instead i kept exploring and leveling my mastery which means i have now 3 mounts, i’ll talk about mounts in another post.
Warning: there will be story spoilers if you never played GW2.
After that i went back to the original zones or maps as they are called, i haven’t finished them before so i focused on that, doing renowned hearts, viewing vistas, exploring them and hunt world bosses, lots of things to do all the time, and i finally finished the original content maps.
After that i went back to Elona which is the zones for the Path of Fire expansion, i went back to do story content, the desert face two threats, one is an undead king with undead army which sound like the Lich King but in the desert, the other threat is Balthazar, one of the six gods, he wants to kill the elder dragons and we want to stop him.
The story of GW2 happen in a planet called Tryia, humans are not native to this planet but the aliens who came from somewhere else, the six gods brought the humans with them, that’s why the humans worship the six and you’ll find them in the game saying things like “by the six” and you’ll find statues of the six gods everywhere.
Balthazar urged the humans to fight for their place in this new planet and they did which started a whole history of conflict … we are the bad side here! but Tyria have another threat, the Elder Dragons, the original content of the game was about one of them, you start with local level problems then you jump into becoming the commander of a pact to fight dragons.
The first expansions Heart of Thorns deal with another dragon, but i didn’t finish that story and i jumped into Path of Fire, because of that my character have history of things she didn’t do, people who she know but in reality i didn’t met them before.
Anyway, in Heart of Thorns we learn that killing the dragons is a bad idea because it will accelerate the waking of the big bad dragon … i’m sorry, i haven’t payed attention, i don’t know its name! 😅
That’s why Balthazar plan to kill dragons is bad, it will bring destruction to the whole planet, and these dragons have a cycle of sleeping and waking, it’s better to contain their threat instead of killing them, that’s what i understood from the story so far.
As the Pact leader i have to search for answers, to stop Balthazar first, i learned that there is a way to visit the realm of the Six Gods, the gods who have left Tyria for a long time and no one saw them for a long time.
We should go to a temple which have a portal to the real of one of the gods, Kormir who was a human before, we are looking for the gods help and guidance, going into the portal in the temple we reached a place in The Mists.
Quickly i found a puzzle which need to collect pieces for it and put them in the right place and rotate the discs in them, this opened another portal to the Sanctum of Kormir, a big library and a truly beautiful place, i spent more than hour here just walking around.
Kormir was waiting for us, she know already why we are here, she told us why the six god left Tyria and why they can’t help, the mortal races can do it themselves, Balthazar is no longer a god but that does not make him any less dangerous, we have to deal with him first then deal with the crystal dragon.
I’ll keep doing the story content for a while, then maybe move to another game, i like GW2 but this is a chance to try other games since i’m not busy with WoW.
