The game has lost none of the charm for me, though, in all my years of playing. When I venture out, especially to take pictures, I find myself getting caught up in the world. Sometimes it's collecting trophy items in pre-searing and other times it's just finding a beautiful spot in the snow of the Shiverpeaks or admiring the shadows made from the leaves on autumn trees in the Northlands.
As a sort of birthday gift, I decided to go around and put together a number of comparisons between Guild Wars and Guild Wars 2, like I always do. This time, though, I wanted to point out some of the outposts and key locations that made an impression on me when I went through the first game originally. These locations are relatively easy to find and easy to recognize; I hope they bring back some memories for all of you Guild Wars players out there as well.
At the end of this post, I've included a picture of my character. I decided to keep the name of my main from the first game (like so many others did), so this is a sort of before and after of my character between games.
Thank you for so many good memories, Guild Wars! I hope to continue making many more! Happy Birthday from Project Tyria!
