Flame & Frost: Prelude (January's Major Game Update)

Quote :
January 28

The sky falls and the ground shakes in the lands of the north. Charr and norn refugees crawl from the wreckage of their homes in the Wayfarer Foothills and Diessa Plateau, struggling to find shelter in the south. The call goes out for volunteers to assist the victims in this time of need, when earth and sky seem to have become the enemy…

Flame and Frost: Prelude is the prologue to a multi-stage narrative that will bring big changes to Guild Wars 2 in the months to come.

Plenty of details and preview screenshots at the above link. Laurel rewards for (revamped) daily/monthly achievements! Ascended amulets and new utility infusions! New storyline! Quaggan backpacks!

Anet dev Colin Johanson comments on the Official GW2 forums about the new Ascended additions:

Just ascended amulets? what about the rest of the gear?

Good question!

Ascended rings will also be available for laurels as well. Back slot items will be made more widely available in the future and will likely tie into a different reward system.

(Please note, the ascended gear purchased for laurels will not have agony resistance built in, since that mechanic is currently unique to progression in the fractal dungeons. They are however statistically the same as any other ascended gear.)

We will also introduce an additional reward system (or systems) in the future to make these items more accessible to WvW players on top of the laurel system.

The remaining ascended item types will be introduced in future releases, and may or may not tie into the laurel system, TBD.

(Edited to add note about agony)

Ascended amulets - assuming there's a PVT one you can trade for - means I can pass up on crafting the (expensive) Emerald Pendant.

I love the play with words on the Game of Thrones series. The actual series (book wise) is called A Song of Fire and Ice. Game of Thrones is just the first book.

ANet is already on record as saying this new branch of storyline won't give us access to any new zones, dragons, mounts, Wonderland, Narnia, CTU from the abandoned '24' TV series set, a look down Olivia Wilde's pants, or a copy of Justin Bieber's bare-butt Twitter photo.

Sorry.
