Welcome to Your Daily Nerd Thing where every weekday we bring you a different nerdy thing we found on the internet. Today we have a special nerd thing for this is the day they announced the next expansion for Guild Wars 2. Its called Path of Fire and picks up where the most recent living world chapter left off.
For those of you not familiar with the Guild Wars franchise there is a lot of lore wrapped up in this expansion but they are usually really good at being new player friendly. Basically the player have been fighting Elder Dragons since the game started. However it turns out the Elder Dragons are fundamentally connected to the worlds magic so if we kill anymore of them it could destroy the world. But now Balthazar the god of war has come back and it seems he does not give a crap about the world or his worshipers anymore so we have to stop him from killing the other Elder Dragons. There is way more going and you can check the website for more.
I have been playing since the original Guild Wars and I am a big lore nerd. For most of its run a lot of the lore has been shrouded in mystery to the point where it actually got tiresome. However the recent Heart of Thorns expansion and living world episodes actually revealed a few secrets and left room for plenty more.
They debuted a number of other new features that will be introduced in Path of Fire but we can save those for other days.
