After a long delay, the next Guild Wars 2 spotlight will begin next week, and as many fans are already aware, that spotlight will be shining on the enigmatic sylvari. A fairly young race, the sylvari came into being only twenty-some years ago, born from a tree planted by former Shining Blade soldier Ronan and raised by the old centaur, Ventari. Talk about a major leap from the norn and charr.
These plant-folk have since received a visual redesign, which will be unveiled on Monday by artist Kristen Perry. Reveals will continue throughout the week, with writer Angel McCoy and Lore & Continuity Designer Ree Soesbee.
The sylvari will also be playable at gamescom on the following week.
