White Mantle / Shining Blade

Post by Guest on Fri Apr 02, 2010 9:33 pm

Was surprised to see no talk about this on the forum, so decided to start it up.

Anet as been doing a viral campaign to advertise there big game update for the 5th birthday of GW. It's started out at GDC by giving out fliers to people at the conference. Than on March 16th "guildwars.com" got some new pages:

http://www.guildwars.com/white_mantle/
http://www.guildwars.com/shining_blade/
http://www.guildwars.com/warinkryta/
http://www.guildwars.com/bladecamp/


The wallpapers were added on later. If you click on the fliers on the guildwars.com page they send you to a facebook account with quotes in a role playing character manner.

Today on April 2nd, 2010 there as been an in game update:
The Shining blade camp was added in game secretly with the April 2nd update. Anet is getting ready for a big, Huge update!
It's located in Dakutu Village, the village is in Talmark Wilderness in Tyria.

I can smell more grinding on the horizon, I think. I am still not done getting the Heavy Eq. bags I wanted for my characters from the last big update.

That, of course, isn't a complaint. More content is always good stuff. Way to take care of customers even if there is no ongoing revenue stream.

And this might be more real content. Not just grind... or so I hope.

There isn't really any info on it yet, I don't think. It seems obviously to be something in advance of the 5th year anniversary though. I'm sure it will do something more once the 5th year mark hits, and they'll probably implment more updates that go along with it.

In other words, we just gotta wait and see. Smile

Yes Anet so far is doing a basic online scavenger hunt with the GW1 website and facebook, were we have to discover clues as a community, it's all just an advertising campaign to get the community talking.
90% of information is just forum talk nothing is 100% fact in what I'm a about to say.

The Shining blade camp is there because on April 23 the birthday update will happen and than the war begins were we can pick up the quests and rage war over Kryta.
They added the camp in secret to go along with the Lore of the Shining Blade are freedom fighters and they have a hidden camp.

The Gwen conversation goes along with a quest line were your supposed to give Thackeray items to win over Gwen's heart, this goes along with the Lore because I suspect that in GW2 there will the children of Gwen.
Gwen needs babies so we can have Gwen 250 years from now.
Here's the wiki page about it him and the quest.
http://wiki.guildwars.com/wiki/Thackeray


Linsey Murdock as been quoted to saying that things need to happen in GW1 for GW2 story to make sense, so because of this lot's of GW1 content is being made, they have even added more team members to the team now instead of 5, they have 7 employees on the GW1 team...lol

Think what Kaeda is trying to say is the War in Kryta page on guildwars.com got updated on April 8th, now it has actual useful information, teaser image is gone.
http://www.guildwars.com/warinkryta/

and...
Bear witness to the trial of the century! The renowned asuran artificer Zinn will stand before the judgment of the Arcane Council for orchestrating an assassination scheme using golems of his design. Speak with Chark outside of Vlox's Falls to attend the trial.

The Peacekeepers
http://wiki.guildwars.com/wiki/Peacekeeper
These NPC's were added in on April 8th in the area of Kryta and you can find some easter eggs in some areas with dialogue between them and the citizens of the land.
These conversations do not pop up every time you go into an area. It may take a few tries before you get one or find one.

Right oustside ToA's door between Brother Mizar and Greves the Overbearing.





Leave Beetletun into Watchtower Coast; between Farmer Fanella and a Peacekeeper Enforcer.






Leave from Bergen Hot Springs into Nebo Terrace; between Farmer Milton and a White Mantle Zealot

Have any of you see the peacekeeper builds ?
May be not too bad, I beat em, but try HM, they turn from level 20 to 30.
I wonder how u could VQ the area with a large group of em like outside Beetletun in Nebo Terrace? impossible unless some elite team build!?


Hope u get the lucky chance they don't spawn! (i believe random chance of spawning).

It might be in our best interests to go VQ this area now before they add more and makes it harder.
