GuildMag Issue 8: Depths of Tyria

It’s November already, the temperature outside is dropping rapidly for those on the northern part of our world and so you’ll be spending more time at home. Have no fear though – our new issue will be there to keep you entertained! While we’re hard at work rebooting our podcast and looking at the way we’re currently distributing the magazine, we’ve managed to create this new magazine for you all to read.

We’ve also transferred our sixth issue into our renewed HTML format, which you’ll be able to find a link to at the bottom of this post!

Depths of Tyria takes your right into the depth. We take a look at topics like the destroyers, the religion of the dwarves, the dungeon structure of the dungeons in Guild Wars: Eye of the North, and give a special highlight to one of the most treasured places of the original Guild Wars: the Catacombs, which you’ll be able to explore in Guild Wars 2 as well!

If you manage to get exhausted after reading all of these articles we have plenty of relaxation for you as well! What about some exciting fan fiction, interviews with Charlie Dayman and Rubi from Massively – or even a special vacation offer from Embark Beach Travels! If even that’s not enough for you, we also take a look at the relationship between the skritt and the asura, the community response to the engineer and plenty more! Don’t forget to take a look at our GamesCom Roundup, which is chock full of Guild Wars 2 interviews, videos, screenshots, hands-on impressions and more for you to enjoy!
