This week on GuildCast the gang discusses the Guild Wars 2 mission system, trading post improvements and loot.
According to Johanson, there are specific parts of each mission within the Guild Wars 2 mission system that can only be completed by the guild that started them. This should ease any fears that people might have about their guild just being used to get the mission started. He also believes that the system will be a useful tool for guilds looking to recruit new members. As people join a guild on a mission, the guild — ideally — would be able to use it to determine if they stand out enough to invite them into the guild.
Preview comes to the trading post!
The February patch will be here in less than a week and it’s bringing an important change to the trading post. Yes! You will finally be able to try on that armor before buying it. Let’s admit it… No one likes buying an outfit without seeing how it looks — even if it’s a virtual one. But, soon this will no longer be a problem for Guild Wars 2 players.
Loot for champions.
Players have been complaining that there have been issues regarding loot drops from veteran and champion creatures and Colin Johanson took to Reddit to address the issue. According to Johanson, once the issue is fixed, all champion mobs will always drop one blue or better item. However, there is a chance that veterans will still not drop anything.
All this, plus viewer questions…
