GuildMag Issue 17: Unearthing Elona

It’s been a while in the making, but our seventeenth official magazine is now here! Following on from last year’s success of the Annual 2015, we’ve decided to make a physical GuildMag Annual each year. This year’s will be available for purchase on Monday 28th November, with delivery in time for Christmas – stay tuned to our website and social media for more information over the coming weeks. As always, our 2016 Annual will also be released for free digitally sometime in December.

Annuals aside, this issue should tide you over until then. In Unearthing Elona, we explore the Land of the Golden Sun and what it could mean if we were to head there in the next expansion. Inside you’ll find intriguing lore on Palawa Joko, the Mists and the Nightfall campaign, as well as an array of creative offerings like fiction and art. There’s plenty more too, but you’ll have to uncover the other articles for yourself! Happy reading!

Disclaimer: GuildMag are official partners with ArenaNet, but we do not know what the next expansion will contain. This is not confirmation of the next expansion’s theme.
