ArenaNet has unveiled the first of their new fortnightly content updates, this time taking players to the magical world of trading. Titled Bazaar of the Four Winds, the new update will bring merchants from all corners of Tyria to sell their wares, though this time the mystical, flying Zephyr Sanctum has landed, bringing their magical crystals and amazing movement skills to savvy traders and daring adventurers alike.
A number of new features will grant players on their login, including a newly revamped achievement panel UI that will hopefully offer a cleaner look at your latest feats. Alongside the UI revamp is the introduction of the account-wide achievement reward system, offering various rewards like exclusive new armor skins, weapon skins, and permanent account bonuses as you earn achievement points on your account.
Put your account achievement points to good use! From now on, you’ll be able to unlock rewards like exclusive new armor skins, weapon skins, and permanent account bonuses as you earn achievement points on your account. You’ll also earn laurels, gems, gold, powerful items, and PvP and WvW rewards as your achievement score grows. These rewards will be retroactively awarded for any tiers of account achievement rewards you’ve already earned on your account.
Those in need of some PvP action will be happy to know that a new map, named Skyhammer, will also be gracing the skies that holds a high-tech asura lab packed with jump pads, shattering floor panels, and one gigantic mega cannon (check it out below). World vs World will also be gaining new content, which includes the new Build Master and Repair Master ability lines.
You can check out the full details of what is to come at the official website
, and remember that this is but the first of a fortnightly update schedule for Guild Wars 2, so expect more content to come soon enough.
