Guild Wars 2 Guitar Giveaway and New Living World Event Detailed

GW2-16-590x331

The upcoming living world event follows on from last month’s Tower of Nightmares which, after players defeating the defences, has opened up to the public and is now ready to be scaled and conquered. The Toxic Alliance will challenge all-comers, from Asura to Charr alike in this chapter titled, The Nightmare Within.

With three mini-events in the series to partake in, plenty of new equipmen and pets to play with and a new gas mask face item that you can’t wrinkle your nose at, there’s the usual bucketful of bounty on offer.

There will be a live stream showcasing the content of the event at www.twitch.tv/guildwars2 on the 13th of November 2013 at 9pm CET/8pm GMT.

On a further sustained note, Arena net have teamed up with Sygnus Guitars to bring you a competition. You will have to work for it though. A suitably hair swinging, neck thrashing metal track, aptly named ‘The Nightmare Within’, has been posted at www.soundcloud.com/arenanet for GW2 players. Your task is to capture a minute worth of gameplay footage to go along with this fantastic piece of chugging, harmonic fuelled, blood and thunder ear art. Get your FRAPS out and record some murderous pandemonium, probably consisting of a the total destruction of a French server on WvWvW.

The most creative of edits will be in with the chance of winning some SteelSeries gear with one lucky chap or chapess bagging a 3D-printed Guild Wars 2 axe from Sygnus Guitars. Details and rules can be found at: www.guildwars2.com/en/community/contests/ and you’ll have until November the 26th 2013 to submit the fruits of your labour. The winners will be chosen on the Friday the 13th of December… Good luck with that one all

Guild Wars 2: Upcoming Nightmare

Coming on the 12th, the latest update nightmare tower,publisher NC Soft confirmed that The Nightmares Within will give players the chance to storm the tower itself, and tackle new challenges inside.

Here’s a breakdown of new events and rewards included in the update:

New Events

Lingering Poison: Though the Tower of Nightmares has been breached, the Toxic Alliance’s nefarious presence remains. Players will find that Kessex Hills and the surrounding countryside still are befouled by poisonous pollen.
Face The Nightmares Within: Special encounters await players brave enough to enter rooms within the Tower of Nightmares. What will they find? Agents of the evil Scarlet Briar? Or something much more insidious? Only one thing is certain: strength, determination and resilience will be required to survive.
The End of Nightmares?: Marjory Delaqua, the human detective, developed a special antitoxin to destroy the deadly menace at the heart of the Tower of Nightmares, but the team she dispatched to inject it never returned. Players will get their chance to pick up the fight and succeed where those before them failed.
New Rewards

Antitoxic Fashion: Players completing the meta-achievement for The Nightmares Within will unlock a special Gasmask Skin that features the latest design in air purification and toxin prevention. This universal skin can be applied to any piece of head armour.
Exclusive Looks: Players can complete their wardrobes with a new Air Filtration Device – a dry-land version of the starter aquatic helm – or get the new Toxic Spore back item.
Minis: Players can earn two new Toxic Krait minis – one by destroying Toxic Alliance foes, the other by killing a special enemy hidden deep in the heart of the Tower of Nightmares.
Tri-Key Chest: Players collecting three keys – either from foes within the Tower of Nightmares or by bartering for them with Marjory Delaqua’s helper, Dee – can open the chest for a chance to win special treasures.

Guild Wars 2 The New’s Music Video Contest

Hi all!
I’m on something of a break from Guild Wars 2 at the moment, after a heavy spell of playing it a few months back. But despite barely touching the last few events, I do like the game. I wanted to make that clear upfront, because next week’s update contains a competition that I’m having a hard time writing about. A hard time because it’s hard to see what you’re typing when you’re cringing this hard.

That’s right, ArenaNet are asking fans to create a music video around the song “The Nightmares Within”, which, appropriately enough, is also the name of the update. Also there’ll be some stuff to do in the game, which is maybe the hope to cling onto.

The competition, which – and I’m not making this up – is called Rock the Nightmare, asks fans to… well, I’ll just give you ArenaNet’s description. It says more than I every could. Or would want to.

“Few things are as ‘metal’ as a sorcerous tower full of evil, so to commemorate The Nightmares Within release, we’re hosting a heavy metal music video contest from November 5 through November 26.”

I’m being overly melodramatic, of course. If fans want to engage in silly, campy fandom, more power too them. Sure, I’d probably draw the line at recording new vocals to go over the instrumental track, but then I’m an emotionally broken husk of a person, so what do I know? More details, including prizes and the actual song, can be found at ArenaNet’s site.

Elsewhere in this follow up to last week’s Tower of Nightmares, players will face ‘special encounters’ as they breach the tower and fight through its writing mass of corruption. Rewards include “Antitoxic Fashion”, such as a Gasmask helmet skin. One for all you bondage fans, then.

The Nightmares Within update will release November 12th.More details are available on the GW2 update page.

Kessex Hills and the surrounding countryside are still befouled by the alliance’s evil presence! FACE THE NIGHTMARES WITHIN Enter rooms within the Tower of Nightmares to brave special encounters—but beware! Things are not all as they seem. You can never know what awaits you within these dark rooms. Will you find yourself face-to-face with Scarlet’s agents, or a much more insidious enemy? It’ll take strength, determination, and a cool head to survive the trials that await you. THE END OF NIGHTMARES? Marjory Delaqua has developed a special antitoxin to put an end to the deadly plant at the heart of the tower, but the first team dispatched to inject it never returned… Fight your way to the upper chamber in a last-ditch battle to destroy the toxic menace!

Guild Wars 2 Tower of Nightmares DLC Live, New Appearance

The steady flow of content updates for Guild Wars 2 hasn’t slowed since this past summer. The latest update marks the third just in October, and is called Tower of Nightmares, which is a fitting name for a Halloween week DLC release. Players will have to deal with the ever changing world of Tyria, which is always full of new dangers and dark forces looking to ruin the day of the world’s inhabitants. They will have to band forces and plan new strategies to take on the Tower of Nightmares, which was created by a mysterious reptilian krait whose ties to a dark force are a cause for concern.

In addition to the new mission the content update also adds a new rewarded skill called Antitoxin Spray, which allows any player to heal others around them from the various poisons and toxins that are affecting them. Those who are wily enough to take down the Tower of Nightmares will also receive a Krait Obelisk Shard to erect in their home instance.

For a better look at the Tower of Nightmares DLC content head on down past the break. The content is now live, so grab a few of your best buds and begin planning your attack on the Tower so you can reap the rewards for taking it down.

Guild Wars 2 is a PC only title that is currently available.

Guild Wars 2 Backpack Cover,Your Choice

Equipment is definitely the everlasting pursuit to players in each video game, some of the players even spend money to buy gold or gems in order to get a suit of powerful equipment. Equipment in gw2 features the appearance rather than the attribute, so it is not difficult to get top equipment in this game. We are going to show you the most comprehensive selection of backpack cover for you in this article.

To start the selection, let’s talk about the ways to get backpack cover in guild wars 2 first.
1. Players will get backpack cover as a reward for completing the main storyline.
2. You can use the Karma to buy backpack cover from some special NPC.
3. Cover will fall off in the eight raids and Fotm, so it is also a good way to collect backpack covers.
4. Correspondent backpack cover will be released in each update, you can purchase it from the trading post.
5. You can also buy backpack cover from the vendors in the guild.

In the following part, let’s enjoy all the amazing backpack covers released before in guild wars 2!!!
