It's a big day for Guild Wars fans everywhere as Path of Fire, second big GW2 expansion, finally goes live. This time we will brave the heat of Crystal Desert and face the wrath of a fallen god - Balthazar.

 

What is new

Path of Fire introduces five "larger than ever" maps: Crystal Oasis, a half-desert half-oasis map where we begin our adventures, Desert Highlands, Elon Riverlands, The Desolation and Domain of Vabbi. With the introduction of such big maps, ArenaNet provided players with mounts! But not just your standard-MMO "mount up and move faster" mounts, GW2 rideable creatures each have different abilities and ways to defeat obstacles. What is even better is that the mounts will be available to use all across the Tyria and not just the PoF expansion areas.

Four mounts are being presented to the players as a part of the mastery system: 

  • The Raptor — capable of leaping horizontally across large distances.

  • The Springer — A larger jerboa capable of jumping very high vertically.

  • The Skimmer — A floating terrestrial manta ray, capable of hovering above the water and environmental hazards.

  • The Jackal — Magical canine, capable of blinking across short distances and making very precise.
