GW2 guild bounty training missions and new weapons
Posted Mar 24 2013 7:26am
In the recent official forum Guild Missions were added into our beloved guild user interface, here we will make a detailed introduction on some of the upcoming changes to the Guild Mission system in the March 26 patch.
New Mission Type: Bounty Hunt Training
One of the most exciting aspects of the guild mission feature is our ability to add completely new types of missions. And while the sky's the limit on what these new types could be, this month we set our sights on something much closer to the ground level: The Bounty Hunt training mission.
This mission is designed to provide small and casual guilds with an avenue for accessing and unlocking guild content. The objective is simple: defeat one bounty target within fifteen minutes. Make no mistake, this is still very much a group activity, as tracking and defeating even a single bounty is no trivial task. Those players who belong to a one-person guild may still have to join forces with some other Guild Wars 2 gold players for at least a limited run.
An important detail to note is that the Bounty Hunt training mission can be researched and activated as many times as you like. You can stockpile up to 10. Keep in mind that researching a training mission will tie up one of your research slots and that boosting that research with extra influence will ultimately cancel out a portion or all of your gains from the training mission.
Three New Guild Bounty Targets
The Tyrian authorities are happy to report that guilds are hunting down hundreds of bounties every day. But the nefarious criminals of Tyria haven't been deterred, and now they're hitting back hard. This month we're bringing you three new bounty hunt targets that are more insidious, more deadly, and more elusive than ever before. Take a look at this bit of intel, if only so you're not caught completely off guard when you have to adapt your strategy:
2-MULT - This defective prototype weather golem has been storming around Timberline Falls. Target needs to be brought in for a software patch.Big Mayana - This voracious hylek is wanted for questioning about a recent poisoning. Target is thought to have taken refuge in the canopy of Guild Wars 2 item Sparkfly Fen.
Yanonka the Rat-Wrangler - This rogue ogre is wanted for spying on and sabotaging various factions vying for control of the Fields of Ruin. Target is notorious for using pet rats to do her dirtiest work.
The commendations, rares, and silver are not awarded. That reward is specific to actual bounty missions.
Aside from new content and minor bug fixes, we're also making as many incremental improvements to the usability of Guild Missions in general. For example, mission activation, success, and failure are now displayed in your guild's history. We've also updated the descriptions of many bounty hunt targets for accuracy. Stay tuned for more to come in this department.
