Guild Wars Releases Preliminary Skill Update Notes

No, they are not nerfing Shadow Form. Yet. But Guild Wars community manager Regina Buenaobra released a preview of some skill updates and updated GvG restrictions that are coming. Since they'll be released shortly before a Monthly Automated Tournament, and affect PvP heavily, the preview is being offered to give players a chance to plan for the changes. Regina does note, however, that these are preliminary notes, and subject to change.

Haven't played Guild Wars in ages. Nice to see NCSoft still supports the older games even when GW2 is their next big thing.

I still play it quite often. Alliance Battles are the best part of it I think.

Alliance Battles and Dungeons are definitely where it is at right now. The addition of Dhuum has also greatly boosted interest in UW again. I have mixed feelings about splitting pve and pvp skills, but I still think it has had an overall positive effect. I mean, if they reduced the skills to what they are in pvp, a lot of the meta builds will be broken, which could cause a lot of anger amongst the community. I especially do not want to think of how to tackle elite areas where it previously took 2hrs+ just to complete 1 zone.

I really wonder if they will address Shadow Form and the huge amount of speed clear teams...although it has caused easy profits for people with "no skill," I am afraid to think about what will happen to the overall populous once a popular thing gets nerfed badly. Taken Ursan teams for example: after the nerf, Domain of Anguish became dead and no one ever does it now. Guess we'll have to find out sooner or later >.>
