Guild Wars 2 - Cutthroat Politics Update

New update 'Cutthroat Politics' has been released on Guild Wars 2 today. The update will allow players to have an effect on the game's future by bringing about a permanent change to Tyria. 

The change is political in nature and with a spot open on the council players can choose between two characters to support and help elect.

The two candidates are war hero Ellen Kiel, and prominent merchant Evon Gnashblade and the vote closes on 5th August 11am PST.

Here's some more info on the candidates to help you make up your mind.

Evon Gnashblade

As owner and proprietor of the Black Lion Trading Company, I have the proven leadership skills and business acumen that is sorely needed on the Captain’s Council. With your support, I will secure a trade agreement with the Zephyrites that benefits us all.

If I am elected to the Captain’s Council, I’ll show my gratitude for your support in the following ways:

  • I’ll slash prices on Black Lion Keys for four whole weeks
  • I’ll sponsor important Fractals of the Mist research into the Fall of Abaddon, to be completed by the end of the year
  • I’ll host a rotation of popular activities like Crab Toss and Southsun Survival.

You can find me in the Zephyr Sanctum, working for the best interest of Lion’s Arch.

Ellen Kiel

I’ve stood by the people of Lion’s Arch in good times and bad, defending her from all manner of threat. Now I want to ensure the security of our beloved city in a different capacity, as a member of the Captain’s Council. I’ll need your support to establish a fair trade treaty between Zephyr Sanctum and Lion’s Arch.

If I’m fortunate enough to earn a position on the Captain’s Council, here’s what you can expect from Ellen Kiel:

  • I’ll reduce waypoint travel prices for four weeks’ time
  • I’ll support important Fractals of the Mists research into the Thaumanova Reactor explosion by the end of the year
  • I’ll introduce a rotating schedule of activities such as Crab Toss and Southsun Survival.

Come find me in Zephyr Sanctum; let’s work together for 
a brighter future!

So make up your mind and help change Tyria forever!

ArenaNet have been really good with keeping regular content and updates for GW2. Does make me want to go back and play but I've got far too much other things to play and do at the moment

Ditto. Not enough time to spend on such a dense game.

One day...

Until you find out that you don't have a static IP and always have to verify by e-mail, get annoyed at it again and stop playing?

You need to stand up and provide for your woman, Kris! This is clearly important to her
