The first day of Asura Week is here, and Matt Barrett gives us the history of his designs for the asura in sketches and video. I love his description of them:

Their essence can be summarized thus: Nobody is prepared for the asura except the asura.
It’s great to see how far they’ve come. Read more at ArenaNet’s blog.
