Wells’ story is detailed in the latest ArenaNet blog post, which describes how she was so inspired by Guild Wars that she decided to go off on an adventure of her own. Accompanied by her dog Anna, Kelly walked from Maine to California, and then took a detour up north to ArenaNet’s offices in Seattle.
And people say Guild Wars 2 needs mounts…
The staff were so impressed with Kelly’s story — which you can read about on her blog and in her upcoming book — that they created a Sylvari NPC named Ameranth, after Kelly’s in-game avatar, and her dog. The pair will be found all throughout the game, exploring Tyria the same way Kelly and Anna explored America.
