We are going north!, getting a new Fractal & a quaggan shield? CoooOOOoooo

A Crack in the Ice, is coming next Monday, November 21st 16

My favourite areas in Guild Wars 2 are the Shiverpeak areas, the snow covered landscapes are pretty and bright and I generally like being there, but the best map in the area by far is Timberline Falls.

I have always admired the amazing views and I have always wondered why not much really goes on there. If we had player housing I would most definitely place my house somewhere here.
My most favourite race is Norn, although I play all races I tend to favour them over others. I loved both Norn and Shiverpeaks in GW1 too!
I have been waiting to go further into the Shiverpeaks since I started playing almost 4 years ago. So yesterday when the trailer was released and it was confirmed we are heading into North Shiverpeaks I was delighted.

I recommend that you watch Wooden Potatoes Analyse the trailer below, he has made a 1-2 minute trailer last 30 Minutes and as always has done a good job of pulling it apart.

I really do hope that we get to catch up with Braham, although I am not a huge fan of Braham, I preferred his mother Eir, I would like to see what he has been up to since her death, how he has coped and what he has found out in the mountains.
But ……..whilst we have been waiting for episode 3 to be released it seems a little Char on Reddit/twitter has been playing with us!

Here is That Shaman’s Imgur album

About a certain location…

As we are heading North, we might get close to the Hall of Monuments or even visit!

Since going back into GW1 to get my 30 HoM points, I have always wished ArenaNet would do something to the Hall of Monuments, as it stands right now it’s derelict and I would love to see it in the way I can view it in GW1 or even be allowed to expand on it in GW2 with all my achievements in game. It is something I hope appears in a future expansion.  😀

If you like spoilers or speculation you might find this Reddit post very interesting read.

Finally if visiting yet another new map isn’t enough we are getting a new Legendary shield and a new fractal!!!

The shield appears to be a quaggan pond which is really cute – it’s almost as if the 2nd generation legendaries replace the original comic ones with more serious and the serious with comic. Love it!!

As quoted by Massivleyop, we have…. a new fractal!!!!

Nightmare fractal. This five-person, instanced dungeon takes players on an upward climb through a massive tower, which is heavily guarded by powerful abominations and their toxic experiments.”

Not much has been said about this fractal, but I’m sure ANET will release something soon.

It looks like it is going to be the tower of nightmare from Living Story season 1, my beloved Scarlet era! Someone on Reddit also said he saw a picture of what looks like the marionette on their site  so we can sit and hope this is an new fractal at some stage too!
