    I wonder how far into Maguuma we will go. So far we only ever skirt the edge of Maguuma proper, but it's a HUGE area in the GW world. GW1 had us go fairly deep into Mag, but not nearly as expansive as it allowed Kryta, Ascalon, Elona, Cantha, etc.

    Would really love to explore the old world in GW2 format. Especially the Charr Homelands. Or former Charr Homelands/whatever they are now.

    Poor Zephyrites attacked by Brisban bandits. I can smell some buisness-political stuff again (that old guy talking with Ellen, Ellen herself etc.). However Zephyrites might get tired of being attacked so often...

    Since we are going to Maguuma, here's a fan created zoomable map - Guild Wars 1 overlay on Guild Wars 2 by That Shaman.

    Ohhh yay! New living world!

    I can't wait, been taking a mini break from the game until it comes out because as much as I liked experiencing the Crown Pavilion and Zephyr Sanctum, it feels like they let them go on way too long without new stuff!!!

    I'm really not looking forward to a new zone actually. Because if it is anything like the garbage that is southsun I'll pass.

    I'm excited that they introduce new areas. Think they said that all the new areas will be lvl 80?

    And I doubt that Maguuma will be like Southshun mini island

    Poor Zephyrites

    I really hope it'll be another explorable area. Looking forward to new content again, keeps me busy.
    I'm already working on world exploring again, but I'll be done before juli 1st. So I'm glad we'll have this update soon. I was starting to get bored (and I don't get bored quick, so I can imagine how some people feel).

    A full new zone would be fantastic. I don't get all the hate on Southsun.. although there wasn't that much to do there, the update was fine. Hopefully if they're doing a new zone it will be an actual full zone though.

    Me neither really. Not much to do there now apart from the Karka Queen, but I sure did enjoy doing the achievements there during the LS and the jumping puzzle was awesome (even tho it made me want to cry tears of frustration at times xD)

    excited I don't think Southsun Cove was THAT bad, the thing missing there is storytelling events and some things to find imho. The scavenger-hunt during the event was awesome, but it's gone. The jumping puzzle is one of the best (and difficult) in the game and the activities during the living story were great fun to me personally (I'm aware that the arena and the still existent Southsun Survival weren't fun to everyone - but you can't please everyone anyway).

    I'm really curious how Anet will introduce this wasteland. Some guys in the forums talk about having environmental effects (which makes you're roaming much slower) and wide open desert-like areas (without mounts not that fun, in GW1 you had those worms at least). I don't think those ideas about a desert are fun once implemented in the game though. A lot of people are still angry because of the crippling undead in Orr etc.

    ... can't wait to see and experience their design-decisions

    I will just let it happen and see what they make of it. If I have many extra hours to keep myself busy, that is perfect for me. An interesting story, even better. More things to explore, Id prefer level 80 stuff, best.

    A concept art posted suggests that there WILL be a new zone. I was suspecting: http://wiki.guildwars.com/wiki/Tangle_Root at first but it's current Brisban it seems. So my new predictions is: http://wiki.guildwars.com/wiki/Silverwood if we're going north? I'm confused. GW2 map of Maguuma seems a bit rotated. So we might go west to The Falls. That's a popular theory.

    Damn... I've lost my way SO many times in GW1 Maguuma xD

    maybe SPOILER:

    The great That_Shaman found some interesting bits while watching the new released GW2 clip about the music of Season 2:



    (the video can be found here: https://www.guildwars2.com/en/news/v...ng-soundtrack/ ) love the music.

    I already saw it too. It was SO obvious, I'm pretty confident they did it on purpose, because there is nobody sitting behind that desk.

    Interested to see what this patch offers.

    I'm not going to excite myself too much for this. I get the feeling that the new area will not be as big as I wish it to be.
