Guild Wars has always been big on celebrating April Fools’ Day. They have a long history of it. In a stunningly awesome fashion among several community sites, fake professions were revealed most of which were delightfully meta. The big joke came from ArenaNet when they revealed the Commando profession with a full write-up and in-game preview in Guild Wars.
The quest is available in Embark Beach near the large boat, this will explain the time travelling Commando and wonderful KT-29 Moahawk helo. Corporal Bane will take you back into Pre-Searing history where you will have the opportunity to save Gwen’s Mum, Sarah. It’s doubtful that this will have any actual effect on the gameplay while in the Underworld, but it’s still a really cute mission that brought back the nostalgic feel of Pre-Searing Ascalon. In fact it’s almost inspired me to retry getting a Legendary Defender of Ascalon character going again. I’m not sure if that was the intended result, but seeing the post-searing map of Regent Valley while I was running through the green pastures certainly made me melancholy.
Corporal Bane will be sticking around until Monday so be sure to check him out before his Moahawk is repaired!
