It’s the Beginning of the End in Guild Wars 2: The Origins of Madness

Scarlet Briar isn’t going out without a fight.

The Guild Wars 2 arch-villain has been wreaking havoc on Tyria since the MMO’s launch over a year ago, but now ArenaNet pr0mises an “epic end” to her storyline. That ending begins with The Origins of Madness, the first content update of the new year, which is set for release on January 21.

Scarlet is once again up to no good, and in Origins of Madness, she’s unleashing her Twisted Marionette. It may sound silly, but it’s actually a massive Voltron-like robot hell-bent on mass destruction. Over on the Bloodtide Coast, Briar has also unearthed the Great Jungle Wurm, a multi-headed creature that ArenaNet says is “so powerful that only an army of players can challenge it.”

There you have it. Epic battles and the beginning of the end of Scarlet Briar is coming to Guild Wars 2 next week.

The funny thing is I hit the level cap with my Sylvari Ranger without really touching the main story quests. Most of my experience was gained from exploring the world and helping random people as events popped up out of no where.

No he lives with his plant-wolf companion as a hermit really. Only venturing out of an abandoned cave complex in the north eastern section of the map to help farmers of the human population from time to time.

It nice to have the opportunity to live as a character in an ever changing world and actually not be the center of it all; something like that is almost unheard of in game, especially RPGs.
