On the long, long road to Guild Wars 2, even the hardened critic inside me couldn’t get enough of ArenaNet’s breadcrumb trail of hype laced videos, previews, interviews and reveals. The beautiful art, the varied number of classes and races, the lush, gorgeous locales that encouraged exploration and teamwork. Everything about the game seemed to entice once die-hard players back into the fold – your level dropped appropriate to the area and your party, PVP was engaging, difficult and rewarding, and leveling was actually fluid and, well, fun. To top it off, it was free to play – forever.
It should have been the perfect game. But it wasn’t.

This weekend marks the first free trial weekend for Guild Wars 2, when the lands of Tyria are expected to be flooded by people whose friends have gifted them a weekend pass code. But what if you don’t have a friend to give you a referral code? What then? Well, never fear: games.on.net is here to help you out.

Okay, let’s get this out of the way first: the enemy of the Lost Shores event is, in fact, giant enemy crabs.
Well, not exactly. But they may as well be: they swarm out of the sea, as big as houses, scuttling like nobody’s business and trying to stomp you into the dirt. They’re called the karka, and they want to move into Lion’s Arch and set up a new home there. Over the corpses of you and your friends.
Sounds like fun? Well, it is, actually — although it’s tough as nails, so bring your best level 80s and let’s get down to bidness.
