Guild Wars 2 Unveils Frozen Power Source, The Jade Sea
The Jade Sea holds mysteries and keys to power, in latest glimpse of Guild Wars 2: The End of the Dragons.
When you think of a sea you probably imagine flowing water and you almost feel the sea breeze on your face, but this sea is different. As the new video notes, it’s a “frozen in time” sea and contains the power of dragons. Nothing suspicious or dangerous could happen here, could it? Of course not.
The sea was frozen by the jade wind, the same force responsible for petrifying and freezing other areas of the continent. Yet having a frozen sea available as a resource, despite the dangerous effects or trade-offs that might be necessary, looks like something to explore in End of the dragons. Overall, it is the basis of the prosperity of the Canthan continent, which has mined and used chunks of the sea to fuel its industry and growth. Others are still exploring other possibilities they can use the sea to accomplish.
We’ve already seen Jade tech enhance some of the upcoming expansion’s new elite specializations, with the green undertone featured prominently when you look at these class evolutions. Everything from the mechanic’s jade tech robot to some of the wilderness power of the Untamed, there are clues that the influence of the Jade Sea can go a long way. The catalyst specifically uses the power of the jade sphere. The mysterious power of this green sea is everywhere. It’s no surprise that the Jade Sea and its mighty capabilities may have fueled more than just industry and growth.
The Guild Wars 2 The team will preview the new area this Friday on their Guild Chat feed. See the announcement for more details on the history and details of the stream.
