Guild Wars 2: Path of Fire will take veterans and newcomers alike to the vast Crystal Desert littered with ruins, beautiful oases and ancient temples.
Tyria’s very existence is in danger, as Balthazar, the god of war and fire, and his Forged legions descend upon the Crystal Desert and adjoining kingdom of Elona in their relentless hunt for Elder Dragons.
To preserve the balance of magic and protect Tyria, players must hunt down and halt the rogue god, Balthazar and his forces on their path of terror and destruction.
One of the features in Guild Wars 2: Path of Fire are the four new mount types players can unlock and train using the max-level Mastery character progression system, including:
- The Raptor: Hardy, swift and easy to train, raptors are intelligent creatures that can cross great distances in a single leap.
- The Skimmer: Graceful creatures native to the Elon that can hover for short distances, making them indispensable for crossing large areas of treacherous quicksand or sulfur.
- The Springer: The springer’s greatest strength is their ability to make jaw-dropping vertical leaps.
- The Jackal: Elusive, magical creatures formed of shifting sands and given shape by magical runes that can dissipate into sand to teleport short distances and dash through sand portals.
Co-founder and President of ArenaNet, Mike O’Brien chimed in on Path of Fire‘s release:
“We’re thrilled to be bringing players back to the Elonian desert region, the setting for the Guild Wars: Nightfall campaign, after 250 years and dispatch them on their most daring adventure yet,”
“We have packed Path of Fire full of exciting features and immersive content that gives players alternative ways to experience Guild Wars 2, including new mounts and elite specializations for each of the classes.”
Everyone who purchases Guild Wars 2: Path of Fire will be handed a ‘Max-Level Boost’, instantly raising their character’s level to Lv80, as well as gear and gold for their adventure.
