I'll just come right out and say it. Death in GW2 is cheap.
And I don't mean "WP when dead" kind of cheap.
We can't get a shiny new character to hang around for a while before it has to die to appease the plot. Belinda, Eir.
And now Vlast.
I'm disappointed because we got this cool dragon, good guy, but in the end, we get less than five minutes of screen time before DEAD. Business as usual.
I felt nothing but disappointment. No rage, no woe. No shaking of fists, just rolling of eyes.
Vlast dies so we feel guilty (except I don't) for being Balthazar's target, and so Aurene can . . be an edgy teenager?
Many alts! Handle it!
