I can't wait for selectable daily achievements. No longer will I have to find and kill 5 veteran monsters -- easily the hardest imo 19:52, 11 February 2013 (UTC)

I've got an alt parked in Queensdale for farming the bulk of daily achievements, it's very easy to find veterans, plenty of Veteran Oakhearts in The Heartwoods for example. And there's always WvW --BramStoker (talk, contribs) 00:17, 13 February 2013 (UTC)

Dredge/Norn structure[edit]

IMO, it's Norn structure. Those gates, with the graving of ravens/eagles, smooth lines, mainly wood as a material, bowls with fire... Just look at the dredge architecture, it's completely different! Malgalad 01:57, 27 February 2013 (UTC)

Yes, I would bet it will be used as some sort of instance for us later. Serbaayuu 03:13, 27 February 2013 (UTC)
Yeah. That's clearly norn architecture. Where does that "dredge base" come from? MithUser MithranArkanere Star.pngTalk 00:19, 28 February 2013 (UTC)

Why are all those new features of the game listed and detailed here?[edit]

I would say Flame and Frost (continued), is just what the top 4 paragraphs of the update mention (two new achievements and some events related to the refugees). This page seems to imply that all those other changes (PVP, currencies, Guild activities, etc...) have something to do with Flame and Frost. It almost reads like a listing of the whole update. --Alad 06:47, 3 March 2013 (UTC)

Because although "Flame and Frost: The Gathering Storm" is the name of the chapter of the Living Story, those features also appear in the page of the announcement of the story chapter in the official site, and so some people attaches the chapter's name to the entire update, as if "Flame and Frost: The Gathering Storm" was the name of the "February update", not just the story chapter.

This page details the February game release, which is February's content updates for the 'entire' game, not just the ongoing narrative for Flame and Frost. If you notice, specifically by looking at the Game release page, each one so far has had a specific name attached to it (which, BTW, has become much more common among MMOs than it was previously). There are multiple facets of GW2 and several of them can be updated in each monthly update despite having no relation to each other. The game release pages are where the overview of this new and significantly altered content each month is provided. The very first bullet point on this page notes that it continues the Flame and Frost narrative, but the remainder of the bullet points are features that were also added during this game release that may not have anything to do with it. Although I agree that seemingly having all of the F&F info located on these pages when we have a specific page already dedicated to it is kinda screwy and prone to misinterpretation, and I'm looking at the least confusing way to move the info where it works best.
