ArenaNet has made its popular MMO Guild Wars 2 free-to-play. That doesn't necessarily mean it will descend into a microtransaction nightmare, however.

The core game will be fully playable for free, but new expansion Heart of Thorns will be sold at a premium price. The studio is hoping that the expansion's new Raid dungeons and story content will sway long-time players.

Developer ArenaNet demonstrated the new feature in a trailer at the E3 PC Gaming Show yesterday. GW2's signature soaring architectural style makes for some very good-looking guild hangouts.

Now that the villainous Scarlet Briar (she tore the place up with a great big drill mounted on an airship) has been defeated, however, it's time to rebuild. Guild Wars 2 players have been asked to help with that process.

With the launch of its first expansion, Heart of Thorns, Guild Wars 2 will add several elite specialisations; these are new talent trees that give your character access to new weapons, skills and traits.

For the Necromancer class, that's the Reaper. Rather than mess around with wands and sceptres, these guys prefer to get up close and personal with a greatsword, stealing health from their enemies with drain attacks.
