Yesterday I was able to log in and participate in the taking of the Lost Shores. Oh what a fun and entertaining zerg fest it was. Being leveled-up to 80 yet still lacking in the gear and skills department, I decided to equip a scepter/focus on my guardian and a long sword. I jumped into the melee fray just long enough to get in some hits, light a karka on fire, drop a seal and then got out of the area so I could spam long range attacks. It was challenging. It was fun. We had folks weaving in heals, running in to revive others, boons going off left and right, spamming condition removers, it was GREAT!

I have not had a chance to participate in the fractal dungeon yet so I can't write about it. Nevertheless, if you are curious about it, Emtombed has a good post titled Fractals and Frizzles wherein he explains his experiences with the new style dungeon.
For what little I could participate, I greatly enjoyed myself and hope other players did too. I am enjoying how ANet is implementing stories or events in chapters or acts. They still need some polish and that will improve with each one they produce, but for a game to be out only a few months and offer us all this for free, i.e. no subs, I'm impressed.
See you in Tyria!

|That is one BIG Asuran laser. I wonder if they are compensating for something?|

|I don't know if this is a glitch or on purpose but I thought it funny. Joe Ranger: "This island is full of abnormal and vicious creatures!" Bill Elementalist: "No it's not, it says it's normal all over the ground." "Nothing to worry about."|
