Explore More Guild Wars 2: End of Dragons with the New Shing Jea Island Map
“A haven of tranquility and peace” is how Shing Jea Island is described by Guild wars 2 developers in the last reveal before End of the dragons expansion pack.
While fans got a glimpse of the new cards in some of the skills and fishing videos, this is the first video to focus solely on what the new cards will look like.
In the video, there is a single scull on a serene lake. This single scull is quite different from the ones shown in the fishing video, which means that there will likely be some purchasable or winnable skins in the game. There are a few mountainous hills and a waterfall that join the surface of the lake. Most notably, there are streaks of jade on the mountain sides, a reference to the Jade Sea.
Much of the first Guild wars Cantha’s aesthetic came through GW2 Cantha reimagined. Fans are hoping that some monuments, such as Shing Jea Monastery and maybe even the domain of Minister Cho and Zen Daijun, will appear.
Although this is the first confirmed card for the End of the dragons, ArenaNet declined to comment on the number of cards that would be part of the latest expansion.
Shing Jea Island is a large island southwest of the Cantha mainland. It has several large structures, high mountains, and many bridges connecting the lands. Some Jade statues can be seen littered around the map.
In one scene, a jade statue sits among a square that appears to be the jade that locked up Shiro after his mortal death. Players who have lived history in Guild wars hope Easter eggs such as Shiro’s Jade Prison and mentions of Guild wars The characters will be part of the new expansion.
It’s one of the first looks players get from the all-new Cantha, which was introduced in Guild wars with the Factions expansion pack. Cantha is inspired by the cultures of East Asia and has two warring factions, the Luxons and the Kurzicks.
Shing Jea Island was the first area players were immersed in after starting the game and creating a Factions character. The starting area introduced players to the world of Cantha, and so will be the case for GW2 ′s Cantha.
Guild Wars 2: The End of the Dragons will be released in February 2022. Several elite specializations and features such as Skiffs and Fishing have already been revealed before the expansion launches.
