Guild Wars 2: End of Dragons artwork showing off fishing

[Update]: The third End of Dragons beta is coming this October 26, 2021 with the Mechinist, Specter and Untamed

Guild Wars 2's third expansion End of Dragons is set to arrive in February 2022, bringing with it the long-awaited return of Cantha - the southwestern continent not seen since the original Guild Wars. Besides a bunch of new areas to explore, End of Dragons will also add nine new specializations to play around with, a combat-focused turtle mount that seats two players, new endgame content, as well as both a fishing profession and player-controlled boats!

While ArenaNet has sadly not shown off all of those things just yet, I'm happy to say that the two freshly posted previews have now given us a glimpse at the Shining Jea Island zone, the fishing profession, as well as the personal skiffs. Have a peek:

I personally have very little interest in fishing, the digital or the real version, but I must say I'm quite excited to see what the developers will do with boats. After all, if the Path of Fire expansion managed to make mounts, an age-old MMO mainstay, feel both fresh and incredibly fun, then surely they can make something unique out of a rarely used idea like personal boats!

Whatever the case may be, I'll make sure to let you know once ArenaNet releases more information. Until then, you can read a little bit more about End of Dragons over at the Guild Wars 2 website.
