Some leaked (rumoured) changes and images. Please take with a pinch of salt. (This is from the Gw2 reddit)

Also Droknars Forge has sunk.
Update:

Seems that high level dungeons were being tested internally.

More rumors (take in with grain of salt):

The "Mystic Forge" (found inside Lion's Arch) is used to make some of the most rarest-high-level items. Many of it's recipes are a total mystery.

The game is pretty close to finishing, just some high level zones needing work.

Asura zones/quests are coming along pretty fast. Sylvari zones lag you like a mother----- (framerate issues)

So a list of 'big stuff' needing some work to make it readyish for release:
  • Sylvari zones optimization
  • Structured PvP being finished (still in development)
  • Content (lot of quest logs etc missing and tagged with weird numbering like QEB82E and high level zones seem to miss some hearts and such.)

There's only 4 structured PvP maps in atm, the two you guys are familiar with and two more. The other two are called "Memories of the past", which is basically a conquest map mixed with some oldskool GvG elements mixed into it like killing guildlord wins you the game and "something something Capricorn", which is a coastal map with a huge pirate ship, water and beaches.

Obviously you can't just walk up to the guildlord and kill it easily. It takes time to get to him even, there's a castle gate and bodyguards and it's fairly close to the enemy teams spawn.

Pirate map
  • narrow bayish coast with capture points on each side
  • Pirate ship in the middle of the two capture points
  • Capture point under the pirate ship, so in the water.
  • Pirate ship has cannons.
  • Caribbeanish setting.

Memories of the past
  • 3 capture points, two near the spawn points and one in the middle.
  • Each team has a fort, with a guild lord in it.
  • Killing guild lord win you the game, but it´s not easy getting to him. He´s protected by fortification and bodyguards.
    Grassish setting.

Thanks for sharing that lad! And while it all looks really interesting, personally the part that sticks out is from this one: The fact that the "Box o' Fun" has a random picture of a sandwich as it's icon.

Could be a place holder image! Sandwich inside a box of fun! Sounds good to me!

No BWE this weekend

Our BWE1 was super successful, we exceeded our expectations. As some of you might have experienced first hand, this lead to some technical issues. To make sure we are not running into the same situation for BWE2, we recently had a stress test, and we are currently deploying a lot of additional hardware in our datacenters.

We will be able to tell you exactly when BWE2 will take place as soon as all the hardware has been deployed. We are not withholding a date intentionally, we want to make sure that BWE2 will be a really great experience for all of you.

I hope this helps a bit in understanding where we are standing – you all have a really relaxing long weekend! ~MK

That's good news in some respects. Might mean that they have little software issues with the game and it's really just their server hardware.

So the characters you roll will be available when the game goes live? Sounds good to me!

No. The characters that we made in the Last Beta Weekend will be available in this Beta Weekend to use. Also more than likely they will be available in all future BETA weekends.

When the game finally goes live and is released all the characters will be wiped clean.

Wouldn't mind joining you again Mike.
I'll have my Ele ready for any dungeons that we might do...
The water boss was hard but fun last time.

I'll also be trying out other classes when not doing a dungeon... Thief / Necro / Ranger

The Guild Wars 2 fb page posted this yesterday, just a heads up to people:
Quote:
Guild Wars 2 community: We're seeing a lot of posts about gw2beta . org today. We are not affiliated with this site, we did not provide Beta Weekend Event codes to them, and many of our community members have reported that the site contains malicious code. Please avoid this site.
After having a look at the site, it's dressed up to look like a GW2 page, but to get the "beta key" you need to fill out surveys and post the site address to five different facebook pages, in short, don't waste your time!
