WvW is the closest I have ever come to reliving Dark Age of Camelot RvR.Â I chose to lead off with that comment because WvW is the reason why I will play GW2, and the reason why many of my friends decided to even give GW2 a chance.Â I want to begin by giving you a narrative of the video I shot below.
The video starts off with my server fighting outside the outer wall of our Western Keep in Blue’s World.Â We are the invaders taking and holding Blue’s territory.Â Almost right away we are pushed back through our wall just to find ourselves flanked by an even larger Blue force which broke through the other gate on the wall.Â Keeps, Towers, and Outer Walls in GW2 have multiple gates.Â This makes defending much more difficult because the attackers can come at you from multiple fronts.
As we are pushed back, I dive off the cliff into the beautifully done waters of our Keep’s moat.Â Water combat, and water in general, are stunning and an amazing addition to the game and WvW.Â We battle back and forth and eventually push Blue back to their Garrison (primary keep, awesome defense).Â Moments later, as my guildies and I are retreating to our keep on our way to take a supply depot, GREEN server’s army flanks us out of nowhere inside the walls of our keep.Â I LOVE three faction PvP!!!
The video ends with the end of our attack on a Tower and a look at the Orb (DAOC Relic).Â We break the doors with our ram and burst through cleaning up the last of the defenders.Â Slaying the Tower Lord, we claim the Tower for our server and march off to take more objectives.
