Be Prepared for Living World Season Two

June 20, 2014 - 10:39am -- Lee B.
Prepare for the Next Update!

With the second season of the Living World right around the corner there is a very short time period to get a few things done. Some of these things to do focus on content that will be leaving when the update hits and others are for making sure you are ready for when the content does arrive. Either way make sure you are ready for when the content comes and don’t be left wishing you spent your time on these things.

Level Up to 80

Level Up!

One of the most important things about Season Two, that we have been told of so far, is the Living World Journal that will be releasing. This journal will allow one to replay past Season Two Living World content but only if they are level 80. That means if you want the first Living World stories added to your journal you better make sure to get to 80 now.

On top of this it helps to be capped out in levels for any difficult content that is released with the new season. Being up-leveled to content does exist but it doesn’t necessarily do a good job of setting your stats to the point they need to be for the content. Getting to 80 now just means you are ready for all of the content that comes in the future which ArenaNet has hinted to being much more difficult.

You can find our guide to leveling up to 80 fast here.

Boss Blitz and the Queen’s Pavilion

Queen's Pavilion

We don’t know when the Queen’s Pavilion will come back after the second season starts. This is the time to get all the achievements associated with the Queen’s Pavilion done. It is also important to get those Favors of the Pavilion now if you need to get them.

You can find out guide on the Boss Blitz, and how to handle it quickly, here.

Zephyr Sanctum

Bazaar of the Four Winds

Just like Queen’s Pavilion we don’t know when the Zephyrites will return to the Labyrinthine Cliffs. Get your crystal collecting done now. This is also the time to make sure you get a Favor of the Bazaar and all of the achievements associated with the Festival of the Four Winds.

Spend Your Tokens

Token Vendor

Leaving with the Zephyrites will be all of the festival rewards you can get with your tokens and your Favors of the Festival. If you haven’t picked up any skins, or special mining nodes, that you wanted then you need to do so now. Aside from that you can spend your tokens on Heavy Crafting Bags, Tomes of Knowledge or Obsidian Shards just to give yourself enough of a head start in crafting or playing with other characters.
