Human week continues with an update on the history of the human race.
Aside from the fact I couldn’t find a high-quality version of the video, just try to tell me after watching that that you don’t want to check out the human starting area with a nice human character. Then let me tell you something surprising. I will probably never be human in Guild Wars 2.
The history is there, there is a sense of nostalgia, I could identify better with a human character, but I’m just not interested. My embarrassingly large number of hours in Guild Wars have all been as humans, so it’s just not going to happen.
Still. Such eye candy.
The race page for humans at GuildWars2.com has been updated as well, but aside from some great new wallpapers and the video, all that has really been added is the story of humans. It’s a story I’ve grown to know already. I’ve experienced it in Guild Wars, and heard it repeated in interviews and the demo. I’m not disappoitned, I’m glad it’s there, but for people looking for new information, there isn’t much.
However this did intrigue me.
From Divinity’s Reach, the long reach of human power stretches out across the surrounding hills and farms, offering protection to the farmers and townsfolk of Kryta. These people are under constant siege from centaurs that have come down from the mountains. The powerful Modniir centaurs have established dominance over the weaker Tamini and Harathi breeds and now urge them to attack human enclaves across Kryta. These raids are major incursions that sometimes reach the gates of Divinity’s Reach itself.
Interesting to see just what’s going on with the centaurs. Up until now we’ve just been under the impression that centaurs are mean. Now we see there are various tribes under the heel of the Modniir. With the dwarves gone, and the norn under brutal assault from Jormag, at some point the Modniir must have had ample time to grow in numbers. They seem more organized now that we have this information.
