This website is one year closer to becoming a teenager! A lot has happened lately with becoming Affiliated with both Amazon and Twitch. More things are going to happen in the future but not set yet but will happen. Lets see what happens in the next couple of years!
The latest expansion for Guild Wars 2 came out 10 days ago and boy have i been having fun with it! Guild Wars 2: Path of Fire introduced a lot of new features as well as a lot of new land to explore!
SPOILERS AHEAD SO I SUGGEST YOU STOP READING IF YOU HAVE NOT PLAYED THE NEW EXPANSION! YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!
Path of Fire is the perfect name for the expansion since mainly you are hunting down the God of War himself Balthazar who’s main goal is to break the balance of the elder dragons. You head south to the crystal desert and revisit elona! There are a lot of Guild Wars one references when it comes to landmarks and interacting with followers of old groups such as the Sunspears, King Palawa Joko, and Kormir. Crazy to think there is an actual link to Nightfall which is an expansion surely enjoyed in Guild Wars 1.
In this expansion they introduced Mounts which were unique in their own way. Where they are good for traveling faster there are also some perks when it comes to learning how to use them. The Raptor is able to leap in far distances where if you were being chased and need to get away and see a cliff that is “jumpable” just do a leap and you are safe! Leaping in general is a great way to boost speed! The Springer is a cross of a kagaroo and rabbit! Not as fast as the raptor and can’t leap far as the raptor but it sure can help you get to higher ground! The Skimmer is so far the slowest of the the mounts but it’s great to traveling over quick sand and water. It also has some climbing abilities but not that great but i have yet to upgrade my skills to know if i can go faster or do anything more with it. Now there are two more mounts that i have yet to find/use. The 1st one is The Jackel which teleports short distances and can go through special portals you see throughout the land. It wasn’t needed in the actual main story but probally will be needed in Season 4 of the Living World Series. Lastly there is a mount that can actually fly! It’s not easy to obtain and you have to beat the game in order to start obtaining it. I really don’t know anything about it other then what i read on the wiki and seen a few people who already obtained theirs so it seems to be easy to obtain if you have the time to do so. We shall see.
Overall it was a fun expansion and well worth the purchase! The cool thing is you can use the mounts outside of the desert area! I actually went to areas you are not even supposed to go due to The Spingers jumping height. I don’t wanna spoil a lot but i do wanna share a part of the game that i thought was the most interesting part of the game!
For those who have watched my streams for the longest time you may be aware of one of my two cats who was named JoJo. She was the most caring cat i ever had! Always near me either on my lap or at least in the room and never left my side. Sadly she passed away overnight while i was at work. She was 16 years old!
It’s only been 5 months since the introduction of ShuCraft 2.0 but with the massive updates of a lot of major mods for version 1.12 I felt the need too work on ShuCraft 3! I am not going to release it right away like i did with 2.0 and plan on doing some live tests on twitch and upload parts of the livestream in episodic form. If you wish to watch me work on the pack live be sure to follow on twitch and feel free to contribute to helping the pack grow. I already have a few episodes ready to be shown on youtube and scheduled them to start on July 1st with a new episode every day. Not sure how many episodes I will create but be sure to subscribe on youtube if you wish to watch the progression without needing to watch the full livestream.
Now what is new in ShuCraft 3? Most mods from version 1 and 2 are going to be in this pack. Here are some of the new mods.
This mod allows you to obtain certain ores in dimension you normally can’t. I installed this mod cause i know there are those who don’t like to go to places like the Nether or “The End” and this mod allows you to obtain ores from those dimensions in the overworld and vice versa! I am unsure if obtaining certain ores will be the same but that is the whole purpose of the test.
Based on the same codes for Applied Energistics this mod has a few tweaks from the original. Unsure how different this mod is but will see how well it works.
There is a mod Installed but I am unsure what the name of it was cause there are other client side mods that do certain things like WAILA and WAWLA where it helps the user know what they are looking at and what types of level tool to use to gather items. This particual mod allows you to see what you can craft based on what’s in your current personal inventory! I am unsure if i like it or not but gonna keep it in for now.
