    Guild Wars 2 Tip:

    Pact Scout’s Mapping Materials! What are these? The icon looks like it’s a badge, but it’s materials apparently. “Double click to consume. Grants map bonus reward points for your current map when in Central Tyria.” Each map you go into has a reward, “By completing events, jumping puzzles, and mini-dungeons in a map, you’ll be periodically awarded with one of its associated bonuses in addition to the normal rewards.” These rewards range from tier 1 claws to charged lodestones. These materials, you must be in the map you want to receive the 200 map bonus points from.
    The Pact Scout’s Mapping Materials can be bought for 5,250 karma at a Pact Supply Network Agent. These agents are spread throughout the Maguuma Wastes, Maguuma Jungle, Ruins of Orr, Kryta, the Shiverpeaks, and Ascalon. You can find their location >>>here!<<<

    Health Tip:

    Core Health! Exercising your core area provides you with balance and stability, which is a necessity in everything we do from sports to daily activities. The core consists of the low back, abdominal muscles, hips and pelvis. When these muscles don’t work in harmony, the result can be an injury and/or pain in any of these areas, with the most common issues related to the low back. About two-thirds of Americans suffer from low back pain. Here are two easy exercises you can try to build your core strength.

    Pull your belly in! You can do this exercise anywhere, in any position. Try it while playing the game, at work, or standing in line somewhere.

    1. Pull in your belly towards your spine. Keep your spine neutral (not bent).
    2. Hold for about 6 seconds. Keep breathing normally.
    3. Rest for 10 seconds
    4. Repeat 8 to 12 times


    Floor Bridge! This bridging exercise works the muscles around your lower body and hips. WARNING If you experience discomfort or pain during this exercise, do not continue and talk to your doctor (the site had this warning..but it really shouldn’t hurt unless you’re twisting your body in a weird way while doing it).

    1. Lie on your back with your knees bent and feet flat on the floor. Your knees should be bent about 90 degrees.
    2. Find your neutral spine position. You will hold it during the exercise.
    3. Tighten your belly muscles by pulling your belly button towards your spine.
    4. Push your heels into the floor, squeeze your buttocks, and lift your hips off the floor until your shoulders, hips, and knees are all in a straight line.
    5. Hold about 6 seconds. Breathe normally.
    6. Lower yourself slowly to the floor and rest for up to 10 seconds.
    7. Repeat 8-12 times.

    OMG Missy! This is amazing. I can't imagine the amount of time and that has been put in this thing.

    And damn I used to be better at screenshot contests in GW1. GW2 has so many more areas.
