Guild Wars 2 Stress Test! Kekai Kotaki leaves ArenaNet after 8 years, Colin Johanson is my hero, leaked class changes for Engineer, Guardian, Theif and Warrior (http://pastebin.com/7W07Ltg8http://pastebin.com/iBz1YjeQ), Gendarran Fields are HUGE (and full of spyders), boring Guild Wars 2.bat map files found and more emails from listeners!
Special thanks to our guest this week Shriggs.
HUGE shout out to MMO-Champion for allowing us to advertise our podcast on their forums!
Lastly, thank you to all of you joining us during our live shows!
Note: Intro has some issues – fixed at :58 seconds.
ArenaNet gives us a Guild Wars 2 Release Date, August 28th and a Final Beta Weekend, July 20th-22nd. Travis asks Andy McNamara a question, The mice and salad will be playable in BWE3, ArenaNet shared their sauce, Jeremy Soule tears it up, Mesmer players want an updated UI, Leveling is NOT too slow, why we play Guild Wars 2 over World of Warcraft, racial slurs regarding Tyria’s races, MrRudder’s co-worker smells and a ton more!
Special thanks to:
Half Assed Morning Show
Special guest Margaret “Maggie” Krohns of SOE, Alpha Collective and Boons & Conditions joins the show! Final Guild Wars 2 Beta Weekend Event 3, worlds get erased, Save money on sound tracks, ArenaNet actually likes their players, Nick and Travis clearly know nothing about PvP, Vayne doesn’t want to stab anyone oh and he is now a co-host, Guild Wars 2 economy will end up like America’s, define your own end game, weapons that shoot lava, fruit, unicorns or something…and more community involvement.
Special thank you to @PurrfectStorm (Maggie) and congratulations to HolyShatt for winning a BWE3 Beta Key!
Guild War players wanting to reserve their character names need to act now, Hall of Monuments can still be fun, pick up Guild Wars for cheap, Vayne kills Travis in WvW Mystic Room, characters can now model, lazy crafters get their wish (Travis is one of them), Nick completed a jumping puzzle, jumping puzzles are not the only puzzle to complete, Baz talks some PvP, Hunger Guilds and some great questions from the community!
Disclaimer: The Searing Podcast is not sponsored by or affiliated with Dairy Queen and/or Blizzards in anyway…however they are delicious!
Guild Wars 2 wins stuff, beta client isn’t really a beta client, ArenaNet proves they rule at biking, Colin puts some rumors to bed but lets them stay up all night, GW2 purcahses are region locks, Travis has some fun with sound effects – annoys audience, Dances, and jumping puzzles.
Say hello to our special guest Shokenaw, who expects to keep exploring and finding beautiful things in the world. Zach will keep doing whatever he feels like, Vayne loves finding references to GW1 and recovering captured waypoints, Nick just wants to do dungeons, and Travis can’t figure out whether to play an alt or stick with his ranger. Also: tips on building your character traits, the mystic forge is slightly predictable, and a heated discussion of *gasp* the trinity! (or lack thereof).
Mac client beta (you’re welcome Steve), destory spammers one button click at a time, crafting made easy, butter…not so rare, rocket boots seem fine to me, gold tips from Marco and someone hates 5 things about Guild Wars 2…bfffft!
