Yes, I’m aware it has been some time since my last installment of these adventures, but in the wake of the recent GW2 BWE (and some other factors), I have obtained a second wind to play some more.
Now, before we continue with the tale of my adventures through the Crystal Desert, I should talk about my detour to the North. Specifically, I made my way into the Eye of the North, and then helped out the good ole humans to kill a bunch of charr in their homelands, as some sort of revenge for the searing or something. Or just because there’s something satisfying about killing dudes in revenge. I dunno. (Part of me wonders why I didn’t go get Pain Inverter from the Asura while I was in the neighborhood, but I honestly have no clue)
To be brutally honest, it was quite the blur. There was lots of charr dying, I think one of them joined my party, I think Gwen wanted to kill him… yeah, I did this stuff like two months ago. Still, that catches you up to like two days ago.
So, here I am, in the brutal harshness of the endless sands. A trio of tasks for kinda annoying ghosts, coming to a close. (Specifically, I had a mission where I had to kill some other ghost-dudes, a mission where I had to protect my ghost dude, and a mission where I had to bring my ghost dude stuff)
After some sort of giant explosion, I find myself in front of the most horrible and threatening of enemies, SHADOW ME.
Dun. Dun. Dun.
No, I’m kidding, it was a depressingly easy fight, over in all of a minute. Some really cheesy builds that you can do there. After dispatching my foe with great dispatch, I found myself in a series of weird, crystalline caves. After MORE GHOST SHENANIGANS I found myself in the lair of the ancient dargon, Glint.
She told me I was special, yadda yadda, and after telling me that I’m probably going to have to kill a bunch more guys, because it was my destiny, she sends me off to the Shiverpeaks, without even the manners of offering me a coat.
NEXT TIME: I shiver my way through the Shiverpeaks. Brrrrrr.
