Greetings from Lornar’s Pass
My progress in Guild Wars 2 is slow. It is laborious. And I wouldn’t have it any other way. I am savoring every single moment with this game, and those moments are pretty scattered, so the time I do get to play is even more appreciated. At this rate it is going to take me years to beat this game. And you know what? I’m fine with that. I see all this new Level 80 content coming out, stuff that I can’t participate in for the most part as I’m still only Level 40, but most of it will still be there when I get there.
I spent parts of the day continuing to explore Lornar’s Pass, where I’ve been for probably the past week. I did some personal story stuff which went amazingly smooth. Considering I finally upgraded my armor and weapons. Here I was roaming around Level 40-ish, but still using level 25 gear! No wonder I kept getting my butt kicked! Up until now, decent gear had just been dropping for me from mobs, or came as rewards from quests. I hadn’t had to buy a single piece of equipment. But as I am flipping all this stuff on the trading post now, usually doing mid-level armor and weapons, I got to thinking… “Hey, I could use some mid-level armor and weapons!” That’s when the light went on…
So I haven’t been steamrolling since then, but as I spend most of my time soloing through these maps, it has gone much smoother. Here’s some more screens from today’s adventures.
