GuildMag Issue 5: Frigid Times

Whew, what an amazing year it has been! We’ve seen a lot of progress on Guild Wars 2 as well as new content for Guild Wars itself. For our last issue of the year we were hoping to have it done before Christmas, but even we can not combat the holidays. One thing is sure, we’re going to end the year with a bang, and we wish all of you a happy and great New Year!

We managed to get the last interview with ArenaNet’s Game Designer and RPG legend Jeff Grubb on Guild Wars 2. Next to that we got lore on Wintersday, the Shiverpeaks, the Dwarves, and Grenth. Finally, we return with our holiday fashion, a talk with the king of the snowmen Daniel Frozenwind, a new title hunters article, and Izari covers the ins and outs on what it means to be a Guild Master. We obviously have a lot more for you to read, including several articles from our new team members which you can find a small introduction inside the magazine as well!

So what are you waiting for? Get reading!
