Over the last two days, ArenaNet has published a number of developer blogs detailing some of updates that will be happening on June 11th when the Dragon Bash event kicks off. The first developer blog is a behind-the-scenes lore offering on the events of Dragon Bash and some of its cool events. And here’s a helpful bit ahead of time: The Hologram Shattered Dragon Wings back item is going to be rewarded for completing the meta achievement for the event.
We also saw a developer blog on WvW earlier this week that detailed some future changes the team is hoping to make:
“Something that has developed naturally over time and that we would like to encourage is the definition of roles within WvW. Everyone has likely seen a commander laying out battle plans and then subsequently seen that one thief mucking up those plans. It’s our goal to introduce more systems that encourage play within a wide variety of roles, not just those two. Scouts, siege masters, and defenders are only a sampling of the roles we intend to add to. We think that these are all a vital part of the success of any server in WvW, so we want to reward players who do these tasks so that they feel like their time is properly valued.”
In addition, we’ll also be seeing changes that should make it a little easier to deal with zergs, incorporate variety in the matches, and build and defend against sieges.
Finally, yesterday we saw a developer blog detailing improvements that are being made to our PvP leaderboard system.
