Guild Wars 2 screenshot from A Star To Guide us featuring a branded dragon

After the somewhat disappointing Long Live the Lich patch, ArenaNet has now gone all-out with Guild Wars 2's newly released update - A Star To Guide Us. You can now explore the brand new Jahai Bluffs map that exists under the constant threat of Branded attack, and if you're feeling particularly adventurous, you can also take a plunge down the 'mystic toilet' (or Mystic Forge as sensible people call it) to face down the djinn Zommoros himself.

There will also be a new upgradeable armor set to collect, a fancy new Legendary scepter that summons a familiar that accompanies you in battle, and perhaps most interestingly of all, a new personal instance by the name of Sun's Refuge. Not only will you be able to build it up and decorate it with trophies found throughout your adventures, but you will also able to use it to unlock new collections, NPCs, lore, as well as the above-mentioned armor set.

If you're wondering what all of this looks like in-game, you'll find some of the answers you seek in the recently posted trailer down below. Before you jump in, however, it is important to mention that the trailer features an absolutely massive spoiler for Episode 3 - Long Live the Lich. So if you haven't completed it just yet, I would highly recommend you do so before you turn on the video. And with that little bit of warning out of the way, here's the trailer:

Much like all of the previous updates, A Star To Guide Us is entirely free for everyone that owns the Path of Fire expansion. So simply head on in game, click on that little green star that appears on your screen, and you'll be whisked away to explore the new zone in no time. Have fun!
