Guild Wars 2 ‘Blood and Madness’ Update Goes Live Next Week

Posted on October 8, 2013 AT 07:24am

Guild Wars 2‘s next content update will be the Halloween-themed Blood and Madness, in which Mad King Thorn’s son, Bloody Prince Edrick Thorn, has taken over part of his father’s realm.

The update includes several events, such as Mad Realm Doors, which allows players to go trick-or-treating across Tyria, the Mad King’s Labyrinth, The Mad King’s Clock Tower jumping puzzle, and the Lunatic Inquisition, in which players take on the role of a villager and must survive the night.

Blood and Madness also brings with it a number of combat quality of life fixes, including new ground targeting options and better targeting. Finally there are a number of new rewards for players to earn, such as the Mini Candy Corn Elemental, a Candy Corn node for their home instance, and the Mask of the Night.

An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream.
